Other times, as is the case with IV medicines, the intended effects are achieved, but only last for an extremely short amount of time. (I.e. Morphine or Dilaudid - lasting 30 mins; Benadryl, Phenergan, Zofran
, etc.- lasting 1 hr.) This has been the case relatively recently with seemingly all medicines I have taken, no matter the form. This would also include ibuprofen, acetaminophen, antibiotics and steroids. They are no longer as effective as they once were - again: if at all.
