before i was born, or course......Morphine was only giving to patients who were dying and today the doses doctors are prescribing or back pain or whatever is a crime. More natural as in what? heroin is heroin......thats what all of these pills are......just different strengths....... I m sure there are long-term effects....depending on how much is being taken ....and all that......I would try a google search. I would normally do it for you, but i am draggin a$$ mentally and physically today.
My girlfriend had an open biopsy on her kidneys and it showed ibuprofen caused the damage. Her doctor in Florida did some research on Ibuprofen and then did a report for the AMA. Ibruprofen (advil and etc) is the number one cause of kidney failure of over the counter products in the Nation.
I was gettting 24 mg of hydro morphine and every two weeks id come down a couple mg, by the time i reached 1mg, i started going through withdrawl, as i wasnt taking what i shouldve been, i havent been getting perscriptions for morphine any more for about a year,i started buying them on the street, i know now that i have an addiction, i moved home to get away from the drugs i could easily find in the city, and now im regreting it because when i go to the hospital they give me adavan's and zoplico
This morning I received an injury to my face which forced my teeth through my bottom lip and knocked out one of my teeth which was reseated. They gave me morphine by injection at the ER and prescribed Vicodin and said I could take that as soon as I got home. The Vicodin worked at first and I fell asleep. When I awoke, I was in excruciating pain, worse than when the injury first happened. It was 2 hrs before I can have another Vidodin so I took 800mg of ibuprofen.
I have chronic pain and have previously used medications like morphine, oxycontin, vicodin, valium, steroids and about 2 dozen less known pain/spasm/seizure meds and of all of them; I can't take the ibuprofen. Ibuprofen, like all NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs... Naproxen (aleve), as well as prescriptions like ketorolac (toradol)) can cause many gastrointestinal effects like stomach pain and bleeding ulcers.
I use glucosamine, chondroitin, cod liver oil and ensure my diet contains oily fish. TENS doesn't work, heat does work to a degree and so I try to utilise this as much as possible, hydrotherapy is beneficial (but not to the bank balance!) and I also use swimming as a method of controlling pain (though I do suffer afterwards). So if anyone has any bright ideas be the natural remedies or prescribed then please let me know!
I have been using anywhere from 40-80 mgs of hydrocodone, daily, for the past 5 years. Four months ago I began using morphine. Anywhere from 60-90 mgs a day. I have experienced w/d a few times, but always give in by the third day. I went through my first morphine withdrawl 2 weeks ago, and it was literally unbearable. I don`t even get "high" from the morphine and is why I began taking it in an attempt to get of hydros. I am now at 24 hours without either.
In terms of pain control I have heard that the 800 mg Ibuprofen/Motrin can be extremely affective, but he will just have to give it a try and talk with the doctor. I wish you well, you are in the right place.
I will be able to come home on Wednesday if there are no complications. I am at day 40 today and petrefied about the pain meds they say I will need. My surgeon says I will need to be on a morphine pump for the first 24 hrs after the surgery. We've talked about alternative meds for coming home and even though I know many have had trouble with Tramadol I figured since it was not my DOC it would be better but he says he does not think that it will control the pain I will be in.
I have been taking morphine abg 100 mgs twice a day for 2 years nows and im prescribed klonopin 2 mg 3x daily to = 6 mgs a day. it helps when i dont take all the morphine my body is used to, an i really hope it helps next week when i quit. i have some hydro 7.5s i have 6 of them to help with withdrawls, will they help?
Gatorade is great, but she also needs plenty of cold fresh water to combat dehydration and flush any remaining morphine out of her system. Bananas are easy on the stomach and contain potassium and L-trytophan which are helpful. Warm milk with a little honey in it can be very soothing. If you don't have epsom salts, bubble bath with aromatherapy oils in are very relaxing. Dim lighting, maybe candles if you have them are also very relaxing.
He has experimented with several meds, including vicotin, oxycodone, ultram (which gave him headaches), percocet, and ms contin. He had a double micro discectomy on 7/22/08 to try and eliminate the numbness and the leg and butt pain. He currently has more leg pain than pre op. He is currently taking 60 mg of morphine sulfate three times per day, and 10 mg of oxycodone every 4 hours as needed.
If you read through a lot of the posts on here, you'll find that a lot of people once off these meds, find their pain to be a lot less. I also do. It's amazing how well Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and other non-narcotic pain relieving methods actually do work :) I would start with talking to your doctor. Good luck to you and keep us posted on how everything goes!
It has been difficult to train my mind to focus away from the pain, but it does work about as effectively as morphine and other drugs....and without the side effects. For me, morphine destroyed my soul. I was always a very active person and the more morphine I took, the more I died inside.
New medicines in the past couple of months have been the Fentanyl, 75 mcg., and morphine 30 mg. They switched the morphine out post-op to oxycodone 30 to 45 mg every three hours. (I also take Cymbalta 30 mg. 2 x/day; Clonidine .1mg (which is being given for nerve pain but was originally used, years ago, for high blood pressure.) I take Ambien, 10 mg. as needed, though I try to stick with melatonin (though these nights sleep doesn't come very easily.) And I've been taking Ativan 1 mg.
I have been taking between 90mg and 120mg of morphine sulfate a day for the last 6 years to manage lower back pain and I would like to find an effective non-narcotic alternative. Auy Suggestions?
Just be honest and tell him the morphine is giving you all this trouble. If you don't get the side effects from the oxycodone and it works, not sure why they want to change it.
After I had an epideral for my nerve pain, my doctor started perscribing me less morphine and wants to start me on sleeping pills so I sleep through the night (my tendonitis wakes me up in tears) I'll be honest I am terrified of getting on sleeping pills, I don't want to take them. But I don't want to take less morphine either. I don't think i'm addicted b/c I haven't had to increase my dosage, it's not making me sick, and I'm scared to get off them again because of pain.
I've had just about every side effect in the book and then some, and I haven't needed any opiate based pain killers. Ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen, anti-histamines, moisturizing lotions, sleep aids (lunesta), anti-depressants and prednisone? Saure. But opiates? Nah. Treatment usually causes fatigue, exhaustion, irritability, insomnia, mental confusion, depression, hair loss, itching, skin rash, dandruff, psoriasis, anemia, neutropenia etc etc.
I've cut down to 30mg of morphine a day, and I'm ready to come off all together. My pain Dr. gave me tylenol 3, and ativan to help with the detox. I also have medical marijuana, but find I can only smoke it at night, since I don't like to feel stoned during the day. What should I expect detoxing? And will the pain when I first come off be worse at first, since I've been on the drug so long.
I have actually researched the different opioid formulations and the opiates (i.e., morphine, codeine, thebaine) they are derived from. And I found that the oxycodone that is in Percocet is derived from the opiate thebaine which possesses stimulant properties, which is why it makes so many people more alert and awake than drowsy and sleepy. The dose of Percocet that you were taking is well below 4,000 mg a day and in fact is even well below the tentative new maximum dose of 2,600 mg per day.
Doc said MRI says MS, referral made and morphine, gabapentin and ibuprofen given.
I'm a recovering heroin addict & I've been taking methadone for the last 8 years. I've been taking 90mgs for the past 5 of those years. I'm at the point where I want to get off completely, so I've been tapering off for the past full year, and was down to 42mgs & felt uncomfortable everyday, the only thing that helped is my prescription for klonapin. I was tapering at 1mg a week but having a problem paying $45 week.
It can occur with all the commonly used headache medications such as ibuprofen, triptans (such as imitrex), fioricet, and commonly with any type of narcotic such as tylenol #3, dilaudid, percocet, etc. The treatment of these types of headaches is difficult, but basically involves weaning off the offending agent and replacing it with another that is later weaned off, combined with a more long-term solution.
Thank you for your comment, I do have vitamin B liquid I've been using and clonodine, and it's just getting worse by the day not better, its my 8th day, and I'm still feeling the 30mg morphine I did end up taking and slept like a baby.
While it was originally thought to be scar tissue, it changes size and is getting larger and was just diagnosed as a hernia and needs repair. Now .. the quiz is .. how to get this done without insurance! Am wearing a binder now and hoping it settles down with the binder and some Ibuprofen. If it gets extremely painful I know to go to the emergency room despite the insurance situation. Would just like to hear some POSITIVE thoughts .. about life, friends and perseverence ..
Flomax, morphine, Phenergan, lorazepam, ibuprofen, Prilosec, and doxycycline if you want to read up on them individually. If you are thinking of suing over it, I do not think you will have a case , especially if there is no long-term damage. Doctors attempted to treat you for your problem with appropriate medications, and on top of it you medicated yourself. When side effects happen, you get treatment like you did.
Try not to feed into it and use a heating pad in that area and it will help. Ibuprofen works really well for back pain. Your doing great. This shouldn't last to much longer. Hang in there buddy!!!!
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.
Whether or not he can take NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, naprosyn) and how much he can take will depend on whether he has varices or any other gastric problems. He really needs a good doctor to examine him and advise him on these isues.
