Pain relief for child

Hi all,



My friends daughter broker her wrist & shattered her elbow & is in a HUGE amount of pain. The hopsital told my friend to give her daughter Motrin but this doesn't seem to be helping her. She is about 7 yrs old & approx 60 lbs. Medicine & home remedies are both helpful! Thank you!

  • I can't believe they didn't give her codien, your friend should call the hospital back, there are meds out there that can help her daughter be more comfortale

  • I'd call back and get some pain meds too. Children suffer pain just like an adult would with a broken bone.

  • She needs to call the doctor and get pain killers for her. Why should she keep suffering?
