Morphine and benadryl

Common Questions and Answers about Morphine and benadryl


Dr told me to take benadryl with tylenol and get some sleep..i know its because ive been in the latent labor stage for so long my body is getting exhausted and the only things they can do is give meds to help labor progress or give meds like morphine to make your body relax and go to sleep because once your body relaxes labor usually speeds up.
so tired too! Body wont relax. Took some benadryl and 2 hot showers and here I sit. Took my son out trick or treating. Putin a happy face, butit was brutal. Not liking what I have done to myself.
I am really glad that I found this forum...I am currently in as state of shock over what just took place at my own pain management doctors office. I have herniated lumbar discs which have also caused nerve damage, degenerative disc disease and buldging cervical discs. I have been on morphine for about 4 years, extended release and instant release. Last month the doctor gave ALL patients a urine test and when I got there today he said "we have a problem"...
Thank you so much for the kind advice!!! I have been taking ibuprophen (about 600 mg per 4 hrs) and believe it or not Benadryl has helped me so much, it took the "edge off" and allowed me to sleep. The first couple of days I spent in the bathroom now I can eat regular food which I'm sure is helping. My boss is aware of what I'm doing so she is allowing me to work from home for a while..
ok its weds night 1127pm and i havent slept in three freakin days saw my pmp and he took me off my oxycontin 40mg ext release fentynal patch and two other meds and stuck me on 30mg morphine er12hr and needless to say this stuff aint doing **** i am miserable went through the sweats chills shakes all night last night cant keep any chow down feel irratable more than normal and just wanna curl up in a ball and die!
Migraine - early am - Was high intensity and used hydrocodone. Migraine - evening - Was one step lower in intensity and used tylenol with codeine Migraine - continued evening - One step lower yet in intensity and chose Advil. Hoping that going to sleep with Advil will help it go away .. hate to use prescription meds unless I have to .. it's always a gamble at this point.
I wake up in the morning and my patches are scratched off(even withTagederm) and there is blood on my sheets. My Dr. suggested spraying Benadryl but there has been no difference. I am having a hard time getting below the 37 mcg but more importantly, is there anything I can do for the itching? Also, he is thinking of trying Morphine or Methadone because he says they are easier to wean off of. Any thoughts? At this point, it feels like the pain is gone and I just want to be done with this.
I am trying to get off Morphine and Vicodin prescribed for COPD and back pain. It's the 6th day now and I have had a heck of a time at night. Any suggestions? I have benzos, 5mg and took about 5 last night over several hours, feel like heck this AM. I need help. Hospice prescribed these meds and I can't abide them any more, they put me nodding all day.
I went to the emergency room and the doctor gave me an IV. Into it he put benadryl, waited 10 min., added morphine, waited 10 min., then added something for nausea. In all the years I did get migraines, I never got complete relief, only enough so that I couls sleep it off. This regimen gave me complete relief.
They gave me another round of IV pain medication (Torodol, Benadryl, compozine, morphine). This worked, but on Sunday and Monday I kept falling and ended up in the ER again because my legs kept giving out on me. I saw my primary doctor, who did a neuro exam and said it was all normal and can't figure out what my problem is. But I have bouts of weakness and numbness in my legs and left arm as well as chest pain, palpitations and shortness of breath. I am scheduled for a brain MRI next week.
The reason people think they're bad is because people like Chris Farley and Jon Belushi mixed the downers morphine and heroin respectively, with cocaine (all injected intravenously). The cocaine wore off before either of the opiates did, which caused respiratory depression that killed both great comedians.
but then again people will abuse just about anything, nyquil, benadryl etc...I have been on and off of this drug for years...i use it during flare ups...never abused it nor wanted to...there is no high associated with it but it can make u drowsy until u adjust to it....Lyrica is the latest nerve/blocker drug and it is being evaluated due to is much stronger than nuerontin....I guess i just can not see how it would be abused but again...anything can be i guess....
I started thinking food allergies and realized that the last 3 days, the itch is even worse - I'm living on Benadryl, and alternating cortisone cream and sarna lotion for some relief. Realized that for these last three days, I've eaten nothing but eggs and chicken all three days. Eggs for breakfast, and chicken for dinner, no lunch. I'm going to eliminate all egg and chicken from my diet for a week to see if that brings relief.
I know the mental cravings and the lack of sleep. And the depression. But people everyday survive this and get throught it. People like you and I. Vicoden was my poison. And I LOVE IT! Unfortunantly, I can't have it. I am still waiting for the day I don't have such harsh mental cravings. Then are lessening. They come less often. But by picking those meds up you have just stepped back on the merry go round. For me i kept watching certain movies that helped.
But so far I've not caved in. (They switched me to long-acting morphine 30 mg. twice a day and 15 to 30 mg. every four hours of the immediate release for break-through pain. Though I'm only doing 15 mg. of the long-acting, one in the a.m. and one in the p.m. And as for the BT, I'm really just taking one every 5 to 5 hours.) I am living on my ibuprofen. And I have a gel for my hand that helps a bit. But the pain has me crippled (and cranky!
of morphine, except Fentanyl is 10 times stronger than morphine, so you can see it's a huge deal, and I was on it for 3 1/2 years) to none at all in 6 months, and it wasn't that bad. Just sweaty. It took me two entire years to get off of 40 mg. of Paxil, and I did that literally at the end by taking a tiny sliver once every two weeks. It was brutal. I can go on and off of high doses of percocet and it's like, no biggie, but Paxil- never again.
It is considered more dangerous by the law too - as an example, it is classified Schedule II, the highest group of 'legal' drugs, based on potential for addiction and abuse, with Morphine, Demerol, Diluadid, etc. Only Heroin, Cocaine, and Crack (Schedule I) carry more severe penalties for possession. (Penalties for possession of Schedule III and IV drugs such as Valium, Vicodin, Codiene, Darvocet, etc., are not nearly as severe.
Today my nerves are seriously f***king with me. I have tried benadryl and not much luck. I have no access to benzo's and don't really want any more junk in my system. Pot, being the exception for now, since I believe It has kept me sane. I started it all by trying my first Oxy 20 in Mexico, while on vacation (easy to get down there). That was it for me, I was in love with a new woman named "Opiate". Then after that I had my wisdom teeth pulled.
I am trying to stay positive, but this is far from the first time I have stopped the narcotics and I wonder if it ever will end. Just wanted you all to know how much help you've been and thanks for being there!
Don't play russian roulette - and save yourself the anxiety/stress that goes along with it. I quit during pregnancy and used tylenol for pain and benadryl recommended by my OB that kind of acted like a sedative for me when I had a craving. Best of luck to you and your new little one. Hang in there it'll go by quickly, I promise!!! (you'll start nesting soon and be a little busy bee) Stick to doing the right thing, and all will work out fine!
At some point I was given through my IV a mixture of Benadryl and morphine. All of a sudden I had a feeling my throat was closing and had a hard time taking breaths. Since I was able to get some words out, it was apparent I was getting O2. The doctor checked my throat for swelling and didn't find any. I was hooked-up to a heart monitor, and the machine went nuts. I have never had this happen. What could have been the cause?
If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
And actually they gave me the zofran and fentenayl at the same time (a cocktail) and the atropine right after....then the benadryl. No one knows why i received the atropine?? And they believe the atropine caused my lungs to fill with 4 liters of fluid which the wonderful nurses in care flight did on my way to a real hospital. The fentenayl, they knew i am allergic to that type of medication (morphine, dialouted, ect.
For that I take xanax, usually just at night to help me sleep. If I don't take it, I will lay there and worry all night so it really helps me and has helped me for years. I am prescribed to take it up to 3 times per day, but I don't like to take it during the day since it can make me sleepy. Lately, however, I have been experiencing anxiety every time I take the percocet.
Had severe migraine night before. Took ecotrin, morphine, benadryl, valerian, chamomile, melatonin pill and liquid. Clonzepamn, did not take trazadone, or soma last night.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
I went to the emergency room last night because I had one and it was making me throw up really bad, they gave me a shot in the but of morphine and sent me home...
Because Mom cons the doctors into believing her fairy story that she can live alone independently, (despite the family trying to inform them otherwise) she is human wreckage dying alone in her own filth. Mom refuses to allow us to help in meaningful ways. She can't get in and out of the bathtub and refuses to allow any alterations to her home to improve her hygiene and mobility. She refuses to use a walker and has fallen several times because she can't feel her feet.
