Re: Pediatric pain management

Thanks, calling them was definitely the right thing to do. Today he was having crying fits and it took two maximum doses of acetaminophen with Codeine to get through the afternoon and evening. They called in Rx of Lortab. I'm not sure how that compares strength wise to a acetaminophen with Codeine. He has dealt with gastric pain before and we have always had a Rx regimen for it but his pain management needs are starting to go to a whole new level and I am now in unfamiliar territory. I think I will also max out his daily Kristalose meds (gentle laxative, similar in function to Miralax). Hopefully making his fecal output more liquid will reduce irritation to the Colitis. I noticing the more firm the more pain he has in his lower bowels.
