|Issue Date:||Jan-2017||Source:||23(1):100-103||Journal title:||Indian journal of Palliative Care||Department:||Palliative Care||Abstract:||Assessment and management of complex cancer pain always remains a major challenge for any palliative care team, given its heterogeneity of underlying pathophysiology and limitations of any pharmacotherapy. Here, we present a case of complex pain management in a young patient with a life-limiting illness, highlighting the issues of organic and nonorganic contributors of pain and provide some insight into the role of ketamine and methadone as adjunctive therapy to opioid analgesics. A brief literature review is also done to provide the context of use of these adjunctive drugs in this setting.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1500||DOI:||10.4103/0973-1075.197956||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28216871||ISSN:||0973-1075||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Drug Therapy
