I have a client taking 6 mg of hydromorph 2x daily and 6-8 325mg of oxycocet and. Prescribed 1mg of lorazepam 2xdaily. Is this to much for pain controll. When client visited pain doctor he does not say he was in hospital from taking 6 lorapam at once and then returns home with a script for hydromorph
This would be considered very high doses for these pain medications, especially together, and with the lorazepam.
While each patient may have different pain tolerances and needs for pain medication, I would only consider these kinds of doses for someone with cancer pain on hospice care, and even then, I would rarely use doses this high.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
