Good evening, my mother is currently experiencing cancer and has swelling under the left cheekbone. And the pain was extraordinary. Doctors have given anti-inflammatory medication, dexketoprofen thrometamol. But the drug only lasted a maximum of 4 hours and he returned to feel extreme pain until he cried and could not sleep. While I read 25 mg thrometamol dexketoprofen may only be given a maximum of 3 times a day with the number of doses of 75 mg per day. For example gels or other external drugs that are easily available at pharmacies. Oh yes my mother also uses flamar gel. thanks.

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your mother's condition. But we apologize in advance because there are no over-the-counter medicines that can treat cancer pain.

This is because over-the-counter medicines can usually only be used for diseases with mild and moderate pain symptoms, while cancer pain is generally severe. Severe pain relievers will not be sold freely because there are so many potential side effects and drug interactions that can be dangerous if their use is not based on doctor's examination and supervision.

So if you are looking for a drug that is easily available at a pharmacy, there are only mild-moderate intensity pain medication, because those with a high intensity will not be easy to obtain for the patient's own safety. The sale is limited only by prescription from the doctor as well to avoid abuse by irresponsible persons.

Therefore the solution is that you have to bring your mother back to the doctor who has been handling it and tell her that your mother needs a stronger medicine, or go to the nearest hospital emergency room if the condition is already very unbearable. So, hopefully answering your question.
