New Option in Pre-op Pain Control

Cumberland Pharmaceuticals’ Caldolor, an IV formulation of ibuprofen, is now FDA approved for preoperative use. When given before surgery, the non-narcotic pain reliever can help patients wake up in significantly less pain. In a recent study, orthopedic patients who received Caldolor 800 mg in pre-op and every six hours afterward with supplemental morphine as needed experienced significantly less pain intensity over 24 hours than patients who received a placebo. Caldolor can be given to adults and pediatric patients six months and older to manage mild to moderate pain, and has the potential to reduce the use of opioids to manage moderate to severe pain.
