Pain Pack Protocol Alternative to Opioids

Pain Pack Protocol Alternative to Opioids

Multiple studies have shown that using 1g of Paracetamol with 400mg of Ibuprofen provides mild and moderate pain relief. The most recent addition to this long line of evidence came out last month in the Journal of American Medical Association. They showed that the Pain Pack is just as good for moderate pain as oxycodone, hydrocodone and even codeine.

Equal to morphine

Additional studies have shown that the Pain Pack gives similar pain relief as 2mg of IV morphine. With the risk of opioid dependence, the first drugs option the Remote Medic should reach for is the Pain Pack. Studies have shown that it is just as good as many other drugs but with less severe side effects.
