Comfort kit medications differ depending on the patient’s diagnosis. However, common medications to alleviate pain, anxiety, and breathing problems include morphine liquid, Ativan, Atropine drops, and Dulcolax. At Gilbert Drugs, we care about providing a specialized kit based on an individualized assessment of potential need.
We recommend that you understand the contents of your comfort pack. Your hospice nurse should explain each medication to you including the purpose and correct way to administer it. If you are told to wait until a symptom occurs, ask your case manager nurse to explain each medication so you can be prepared when and if symptoms arise.
