OK, thats pretty much what I had thought, now I just need to motivate myself to actually stop. Always some excuse of course. Is there a corelation between oxycodone/oxycontin and morphine? IOW is 10 mg oxycodone/oxycontin the "same" as 10 mg morphine? I ask because I wonder if I can replace the morphine with oxyetcetera. I can only get the morphine in 100 mg doses and as you said, theyre not really meant to be broken in half and Id need to break them in fifths or something.
5 pills 14 hours later 4875 mg (Mon) 6 pills 23 hours later 3900 mg (Tues) (with attempe\ted CWE which I dont believe worked correctly) 5 more pills 8 hours later 3250 mg (Tuesday night at 7 pm, no CWE) Its been approx 80 hours since my last dose and I was reading online that 72-96 hours is where liver failure occurs from acetaminophen overdose....
My dr recently changed my pain medication for my lower back pain from percocet to morphine b/c he wanted me taking less tylenol, as it causes liver damage. I do NOT feel pain relief from the morphine. I'm taking twice what he prescribed me just to feel relief. I was NOT expecting this!!!
Did you know that the hydromorphone you take is by far stronger than morphine. The only thing I can think of that has helped me is taking vitamin B-Complex. It's safe to take and can help give you some extra energy esp. if you are anemic at all. Also, I know exercise can make pain worse, but even a short walk away from the desk can help. Or, just take time to stand and stretch atleast if you can. Your circulation will be improved if you move around and it will refreshen you too.
Variants in the CYP2D6 gene can make excess enzyme which will cause codeine to change to morphine more quickly and can cause higher than expected levels of morphine in the blood. This may result in a potential overdose of morphine in the mother or her nursing infant. The solution is to take lower than the standard dose of codeine or find an alternative medication not processed by CYP2D6. Individuals with this kind of rapid metabolism are often referred to as “ultra metabolizers.
Fentanyl is morphine, Norco is hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is schedule III, morphine is schedule II morphine is about 20x stronger than hydro's In other words... BAD IDEA!
As I understand Methadone is broken down by an enzyme which is greatly retarded by Clairithromycin, this ay cause an overdose to occur in the user. I have been taking Methadone for 5 years now (was at 180mg/day now at 10mg/day) can I safely take the Clairithromycin? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Undiagnosed-Symptoms/Methadone-and-Biaxin/show/203162">Methadone and Biaxin</a>.
Increasing dosage, which many patients do without consulting their physicians, can increase dependency risk and can even lead to overdose or death. At the Waismann Method Treatment center we take our patients to Domus Retreat after detoxifcation for a better evaluation on their pain level. We begin treatment with non narcotics and provide yoga, acupunture, massage and other forms on therapies that can help with prescription abstinance and pain control.
The the only medication that works with methadone for break through is morphine. Ask your Dr. to give you morphine instead of oxycodone. This will help with your pain.
Investigation of the mechanism responsible for the morphine action revealed that morphine inhibited expression of IFN regulatory factor 5 in the hepatocytes. In addition, morphine suppressed the expression of p38, an important signal-transducing molecule involved in IFN- alpha -mediated anti-HCV activity. These findings indicate that morphine plays a cofactor role in facilitating HCV persistence in human hepatocytes.
I guess I was expecting much better control from the Opana than I was getting from the morphine but it is not turning out that way). My pain levels are okay right now. And I guess another factor is that I am way past due on a epidural injection as I had to skip the one scheduled last month due to surgery and my new spine doctor wants to wait until the MRI films come in before considering injections...my next appt. with him isn't until Feb. 14th. :( I think I may end up on Oxycontin.
Morphine Sulfate (15 mg) & Flexeril (5 mg.) and was told to continue on with my Valium as needed. Let me please note that due to heredity and being on anti-depressants and Valium for 10 years I have a high tolerance for pills. When I got home, for the first 3 or 4 days I took the Morphine (15 mg) and it did NOT work for my pain, at least not at that low of a dose. I had to take 2 or 3 and it just made me feel goofy. The Flexeril did not do much either.

You would feel nothing from the morphine - its effect would be completely blocked - but you would still be adding to the strong opiate already in your system, possibly to overdose levels. And I think you have to consider the possibility that you are not out of the woods at all yet as the sub slowly wears off. Good luck.
Ok I was on Morphine in Jan had been on that for over a year then he put me on dulidid for 2 weeks to try 4 a day well they didn't not work so what I did not take I took them back to him . Then he switched me to Oxycontin 30 mg and Percerts 5 mg he gave me a drug test with mouth swab he said I had morphine, by this time it should been out of been out of my system it had been a month .
I also want to thank you for sharing your life with all of us. I went in for my 50 year check up and my AST level was 37 and labled high. I also have been binge drinking for the past 6 years and am terrified it has all caught up with me:-( I am hoping it is nothing to serious, but I know I have done my body damage, and now I am trying to eat more healthy and drink way less...Why does it take a test reading to make us all realize we have messed up our own bodies...
I went to the ER and they told me that I had High ALT/AST levels. They thought I had mono but then said the tests were negative. They did a CT, Ultrasound of my liver, and sent me home with my dad. The next day I went to see my family doctor, at this point I was in so much pain in the abdominal area, I had not had anything to eat in about 5 days and very littler water. After seeing me the family doctor sent me to the hospital. I was given a morphine pump to control my pain.
i want to taper back down to my prescribbed dose and the family i live with (who ALSO take morphine and one has a morphine pump and takes oral all legit prescriptions) say that doctors just take away all your meds and let you suffer the withdraw. I know that in some cases that is probably true, but the doctors at my local ER said i would HAVE to taper because of my amounts i was taking and the amount of time i've been on the stuff, and my pain. but i just need some advice.

I am sure they will give me Demorol because I have had surgery in the past and Morphine made my heart race to dangerous levels and gave me no relief. The demerol had worked in the past but I wasnt on the oxycontin the last time I had surgery. My question is will I get the relief I need on the demerol? I know that with demerol you get highs and lows and with the oxy you are at a constant level for the 8 hours or so. its the lows on the demorol I am worried about.
If you take too much Tramadol, it could lead to seizures. And it takes a much smaller overdose of Tramadol to cause death than it takes of oxycodone. If your doctor doesn't want to prescribe anything stronger than Tramadol, my advice would be to look around for another doctor.
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Overdose symptoms of a tramadol overdose may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, cold or clammy skin, feeling light-headed, fainting, or coma. Tramadol may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for.
My diagnoses include cervical and lumbar cord and foramenal stenosis at multiple levels, spondylosis at multiple levels, degenerative disc disease, and lumbar scoliosis. I've had spine disease for over 30 years. I've been using opioids to manage pain for over 30 years, and have been maintained on long-acting opioid preparations since 1994, with breakthrough / rescue doses of opioids approximately 25% of my daily dose.
The report highlights the rising death rate associated with the use of opioid painkillers such as methadone, morphine, OxyContin, Dilaudid, and Vicodin. Between 1999 and 2006, according to the report: Deaths from the use of opioid pain relievers more than tripled in the U.S., from 4,000 in 1999 to 13,800 in 2006. 40% of all poisoning deaths in 2006 in the U.S. involved opioid painkillers. The number of poisoning deaths involving methadone increased from 790 to 5,420 during this period.
it looks for pot,speed,crystal meth,heroin ,which metabolizes to morphine, codiens cocaine and alcohol.......oxy,hydro are not in the search area of this test. now most emplyers are asking for a additional test to be conducted called a "home" opiate test. this test stricky searches for oxy hydo etc..........only then will sub show up. i always requested the additional home test which is conducted from the same sample..........
(Leg pain is not only from from DDD but also from multiple surgies but on leg itself) I have been seeing a pain specialist for several years. He has treated me with Morphine ER and for the last couple years Oxycontin, which is time released. The meds have lost their effectivness over time and my doctor has upped the dose for to account for tolerance. Over all though the control is just not good and getting worse over time.
The chemical our muscle in crisis produces and the inability to have enough new blood and oxygen into the muscle is what causes the burning pain. Trigger points are formed and there are several levels of them. Devin J Starlanyl has written a book on the subject that all health providers and physical therapists need to read. He has a web sight with alot of information, It describes slot of my symptoms to a t. I wish I had found this information 7 years ago.
Many people are scared and they have the right because many have died from methadone overdose, some from following the doctors orders. But a doctor who prescribes methadone for anxiety and says oh here take as needed or take 20 mg 4 times daily. Well you are not gonna wake up if one did that. So many sad stories out there related to this med but I have been on it for 13 years. Nerve pain is very difficult to treat, especially PLP. I started lyrica. Anyone here take it, gained any weight on it.
You may even want to try the morphine. It might not be as bad as you think. Just keep an open mind when you go to this appointment. I'm sure it will be just fine.
