Morphine and benadryl

Common Questions and Answers about Morphine and benadryl


Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn About 1 month ago my pain management doctor increased my dosage of morphine sulfate from 10 gm to 30 mg (1 every 12 hours). Shortly after I began taking the 30mg morphine sulfate, I started to develop a slight rash. Over the last week, the rash has become much worse and a real problem. I've been taking over the counter benadryl tabs to get some relief from the rash which is helping a little to relief the itching and rash.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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"...
1578485 tn?1297213431 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..

579258 tn?1250652943 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1100598 tn?1413131026 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.
Avatar n tn Just has Tylenol in it. And that stuff makes me itch so bad. Must be morphine based. I can't have morphine either. Try the Tylenol #3. Old stuff, but it does work. Any narcotic can make you sick to your stomach. Eat before, take the med, eat afterwards. And drink a lot. Sorry for your pain!!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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....
623944 tn?1244039090 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1035252 tn?1427231433 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!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
922573 tn?1304102929 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.
5793136 tn?1375298104 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...
Avatar f tn Both codeine and tramadol share the 3-methyl ether group, and both compounds are metabolized along the same hepatic pathway and mechanism to the stronger opioid, phenol agonist analogs. For codeine, this is morphine, and for tramadol, it is the M1 metabolite, O-desmethyltramadol. The closest chemical relative of tramadol in clinical use is venlafaxine (Effexor), an SSNRI. The two molecules are nearly identical.
