Morphine and euphoria

Common Questions and Answers about Morphine and euphoria


Avatar n tn i am addicted to morphine...120mg a day...time released. How long to quit and side effects while taking morphine..side effects of quitting...withdrawel?
401095 tn?1351395370 Euphoria with opioids can always be achieved by increasing dosage because of the very process of agonizing the mu receptors and its effect in the limbic system of the brain. After morphine and diacetylmorphine (heroin) stopped doing it for me as effectively, I switched to fentanyl, and that hit the spot. There is always a stronger opioid (carfentanyl, an analogue of fentanyl, for example, used to tranquilize big African game, like elephants and rhinos).
Avatar n tn i weigh 120 pounds and on any given night at work i could easily inject 300-400mg of demerol, 60-90mg of morphine and 16-20mg of dilaudid. i am still amazed that i'm still alive. i don't ever want to go down that path again. talk about withdrawal hell. i lived through it and hope i never have to feel like that again.
Avatar f tn So in essence, chewing one 50 mcg/hr patch is about 5 mgs of fentanyl which is equivelant to 200 mgs of morphine. That's like doing 2 and a half 80s at once. What they're doing is dangerous, end of story, take it from some one that knows first hand. I'm not a dr., nor do I claim to know everything, so don't take my word for science but what they're doing is dangerous and they need to get help getting off...
Avatar n tn lol Anyways I have been taking pills since the accident, started with vicodines, went and graduated from them to Norco, and now Morphine for the last 2 years. Well I have been married for 3 years and I dragged my wife into this world of addiction, and what a mistake! It has cause our marriage so many trials a tribs, I have lost count.
Avatar f tn I could just take them and relax and doze off for an hour or a few. I don't think I've EVER experienced euphoria from taking my lortabs....yet I somehow became addicted (or dependent, still not sure at this point). What's up with that?? Am I the only one who's like that? Has anyone else felt that sleepy/relaxed feeling? Has anyone NOT felt euphoria after taking hydros? Do opiates GIVE some people energy (as opposed to taking away energy, like they do to me)? Thanks.... ~~~K.
Avatar f tn now my dr wants me to go on morphine i dont want to but he says it will manage my pain better i am 67 and still work cant i refuse and stay as things are? is there anything less adictive to take? i need to work and dont want to get hooked on anything stronger. his reason was that 4 pills a day is too much.
Avatar m tn How much different is Morphine going to be to come off of in the Future - Compared to Methadone?. Im currrently taking 15-30mg of Morphine a day every 8 hours. Should I alter Days and only take the Morphine ever couple of days so I dont have such a reaction if I decide to stop the Morphine All together? My methadone withdrawl almost ended my Marriage, and Im not wanting to go through anything like that again...
Avatar f tn If you taking 120 mg over a 12 hour period, you are getting on average 120 mg/12 hour = 10 mg of morphine per hour. Take 25% of those morphine mg per hour numbers above and that will yield the bioavailability of morphine (i.e.,how much of the dose in the pill is actually active towards relieving your pain). Don't let the bioavailability fool you into thinking you are not getting enough medication for your pain.
541953 tn?1262589826 And my doctor changed my meds from the morphine to Opana Er 20 mgs twice a day. what is the difference? does anyone know? I tried to google and got nothing. I was just wondering if this is just a different brand name for morphine but stronger? thanks in advance for your help.
1026341 tn?1252011492 stay away from opana if he emntions it cos that is a much more powerful and has a euphoria associated with it for me vs morphine//never had the desire to abuse morphine..but we r all different...learn all u can about any drug he suggests...but it is good he is helping u...
Avatar n tn I was on morphine in the past for back issues and I didn't get any euphoria from it so it worked well for me. But, everyone is different and morphine can be very addictive. I also didn't have withdrawals coming off of it but once again, everyone is different. I have read plenty of posts where people are addicted to it. Do you think you need anything that strong for surgery though? When I had my back surgery I was prescribed darvocet for pain.
Avatar f tn How long were you on methadone and how much did you taper and did you taper down to 0 mgs? thanks for the answers and support.
1331804 tn?1336870958 I also told him that part of the reason is due to the fact that the Morphine ER doesn't last 12 hours, but instead starts fizzling out after 6 hours and it is completely gone after 8 hours. I also said that, despite this, I am still getting pretty good pain control as the Percocet almost always covers the pain that the Morphine ER leaves behind. Here is what he told me: He said that since I am switching insurances in a month, he doesn't want to make any changes to my meds.
Avatar n tn I brought him to the rehab so he could take his pill the smorning and he tried to fake out the nurse and not take it then he proceeded to get home and try and throw it up and got caught again, he says he wants the help but its so hard to stay away from it what if any thing can I do I know nothing about either drug herion or Neltrexone. All I know is I want my son back.
847512 tn?1272570662 Hey all, I have a problem. A new one that is. My Dr. Started me on Morphine and Fentanyl patches. But now all of a sudden the last 2 days I have gotten extreme muscle spasms especially in my neck and shoulders to the point where I cant look up or turn my head I can only look down and I have tension in my legs where they feel stiff when walking. Does anyone get that? I also get the spasms in my legs but not so much as in my shoulders and neck. this is getting out of hand.
Avatar f tn Bupe is great for a break from the rush and euphoria to give time to build aftercare and deal with some of the reasons we use, but it is an opioid. What is your plan with the bupe, are you building a support system and coping skills? That is what will save you. Had I only used bupe and nothing else, I would be dead by now. So, what's your plan or are you here to get advice about a plan?
424839 tn?1268189846 This class of drugs includes heroin, morphine, codeine, methadone and oxycodone (Oxycontin).
Avatar n tn I was addictive to Vicodin and I would chew my pills and like clock 30 minutes after my whole body would get a tingle and the euphoria was great but with the patch it just mainly halps with the pain no the high.
Avatar m tn I just started day four of cold turkey from the same exact dosage!!!! Its not as bad as you think to just go cold turkey. Its not fun bit its no going to kill you. Just think to your self " Im going to get the flu tomorow" and follow the Thomas recipe and be prepared and you will be fine. today or tomorrow i am going to do an hour by hour accounting of my experience maybe it will help you?
Avatar f tn I am also prescribed percocet and I get 150 pills a month and I take it in addition to extended release morphine for chronic back pain. On average, I take 25 mg of percocet daily and up to 30 mg a day along with 60 mg of morphine per day. I have never had a morning after headache from the percocet. The maximum dose of acetaminophen that can be taken daily is 4,000 mg. So with 325 mg in each pill, you took well under the maximum dose.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if these are considered "drugs of choice" and highly sought after and abused like oxycontin is? Or are they like methadone, where they aren't abused as much? I heard people don't usually abuse methadone because they don't get the high off of it like they do with oxycontin. I was wondering if hydromorphone and oxymorphone are more like oxycontin or methadone as far as being abused. Thanks.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar n tn Yes good advice do a taper specially comming o that high o a dose i tapered and now I take 2 per day. one day nothing, but slow and steady and it can be done. Good luck you can do it, be good to you you deserve to be happy. Our spouses have their own issues I ignore my spouse or now and let him be grumpy i he wants I used to think itb was me but its not . you take care o yoursel and kids this orum very supportave lot o women in same postions.
1794671 tn?1338798991 I have been taking norco throughout my pregnancy because I felt like taking just my breakthrough meds was better then taking it with Morphine, and also better then taking nothing and being unable to function as a human being. My dr was not in agreeance, she throught I should stay on the morphine because of withdrawals but I convinced her that if they got to any point where I was uncomfortable I would take it but I was unable to persevere and just take my norco.
Avatar f tn The next 5 to 6 months are going to be so agonizing for me, my mom, my sisters, and everyone who truely cares about my sister and her baby. She buys her methadone off the streets.
Avatar n tn If only I could stay clean long enough to be as enlightening as you, it would be a miracle. Sadly, I have had another bout with morphine and it all but killed me this time. The seizures and halucinations were almost fatal for me. I will try once again to be "normal" and quit this awful insanity. God, please.... J.B.
Avatar m tn So i did so, couple days passed and I realized by me doing that i was going to run out sooner and insurance wont cover an early refill, so I called my pain specialist and he gave me a script for oxycodone 15 mg Q 120. Ok i thought this is fine. Now that means a total of 4 a day and sometimes I have to take a half or 5 a day again making me run out 1-5 days before the new script can be written.
Avatar m tn I did it this morning, on day 2, and then I have read that that is a horrible thing to do, and then I read that it is good... and so on and so forth. There doesn't seem to be any real consensus, and anecdotal evidence is scarce at best regarding OC use to take the edge off heroin withdrawals. Did I bring myself back to day 1 by smoking this morning?
Avatar n tn I had never even heard of the stuff before then but was hooked immediately. Later I got into using morphine, heroine and other opiates found on the street. Needles are no strangers to me. I finally got clean by about 1976 and never used again until about 1994. My wife was being given morphine and Dilaudid for cancer pain at the time. It was just a matter of time before grief and fatigue brought me back to using again.
