Answer

Analgesics, Other

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. These medications ensure patient comfort and have sedating properties, which are beneficial in the treatment of pain.

A review of opioid equivalents and conversions may be found in the following reference article:

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, FeverAll, APAP500, Mapap, Acephen, Aspirin-Free Anacin, Cetafen, FeverAll, Little Fevers, Non-Aspirin Pain Releiver, Nortemp Children's, Ofimev, Pain Eze, Pharbetol, Q-Pap, Silapap, Triaminic, Valorin)

Acetaminophen is the drug of choice for pain in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; those with upper GI disease; or those who are taking oral anticoagulants.

Morphine (Arymo ER, Astramorph, Duramorph, Depodur, MS Contin, Avinza, Infumorph, Kadian, MorphaBond)

Morphine sulfate is the drug of choice for narcotic analgesia, owing to its reliable and predictable effects, safety profile, and ease of reversibility with naloxone. Intravenous administration may be dosed in a number of ways and commonly is titrated until desired effect is obtained.

For chronic severe pain unremitting to alternative therapy, oral immediate–release and extended-release morphine sulfate may be warranted. Arymo ER is a morphine sulfate abuse-deterrent formulation.
