My patients can't tell me and we are struggling to provide the best care possible in a challenging situation, please help, your input will be much appreciated
I wouldn't like to suggest drugs because of the age.
I can absolutely say acetyl l carnitine will help with pain. It's an antihyperalgesic. It's an amino acid and is very safe with few interactions.
Glutamine can also be helpfull. It converts to gaba. It also will help with normal gi function.
Other than that it's probably stuff you already know. Maybe an essential amino acid powder could speed recovery too.
This looks to be an old post but I just joined and have been looking around the site to see what other people are going through. I feel sooo bad for those poor babies. It is HELL for an adult to go through withdrawals and for a poor baby to be born into HELL... damn! The only thing I can think that would help them is like someone else said about the warm baths and swaddling because they probably get the chills but for me I go from really cold even in 100 degree weather to really hot even if I had a fan blowing directly on me and the babies can't tell you what they are feeling! I would think to hold and rock them and comfort them as much as possible. I can't imagine being in a crib alone not able to communicate and feeling the pain of withdrawals. OMG!
