Higher pain medication dosages typically indicate an increased level of pain. However, dosages may be adjusted if an individual’s pain tolerance changes over time. An increased frequency in taking pain medications also may indicate an increased level of pain.
Lastly, the route in which a pain medication is administered impacts the time by which therapeutic effects are achieved. Is the pain medication administered intravenously or through epidural injection? Is it ordered to be given by mouth or via patch? Injectable administration of pain medications is typically administered for more acute and/or severe pain.
