The Honolulu Pain Management Clinic LLC develops a treatment plan and exact medications recommended will vary with the individual patient.
Pharmacological Therapy – In the treatment of chronic pain, whether due to malignant or benign processes, guidelines are used for selecting the kind and the amount of analgesia. The exact medications recommended will vary with the individual patient and treatment plan. When treating moderate to severe pain, the type of the pain, acute or chronic, needs to be considered. The type of pain can result in different medications being prescribed. Certain medications may work better for acute pain, others for chronic pain, and some may work equally well on both. Acute pain medication is for rapid onset of pain such as from an inflicted trauma or to treat post-operative pain. Chronic pain medication is for alleviating long-lasting, ongoing pain.
