Avatar f tn Hospice prescribed morphine tablets, morphine liquid and valium for her. She was a known prescription drug addict. It is my belief that she should never have been given these medications to administer herself. Who is to say that she took too many at one time and this is what ultimately ended her life? She was going to die anyway but it is my belief that this sped up the dying process by a great percentage.
Avatar m tn Aloha all, I forgot to add that I went off the morphine once before and on the third day after I started having WD's and took some more morphine, wish I would have just stayed off and would probably be OK by now.

Avatar n tn Hi Val, Welcome to the Pain Management Forum at MedHelp. I am sorry for your loss. You ask a difficult question. Morphine, like other opiates slow our respirations. 30 mg of Morphine in itself should not have caused you Aunt's death. However if she was extremely frail and on additional medications that caused respiratory depression it could have been a contributing factor. Many chronic pain patients take even higher doses of Morphine and function. Morphine has many side effects.
Avatar m tn Recently I read that if you take more than 40 mg of OxyContin at one time then it can cause death or permanent brain damage. Well when I was ages 14 and 16 I took one of my mom's 80 mg OxyContin pill and I remember I felt like throwing up for like 16 hours straight. I took it in the evening, went to bed, and woke up the next day still very nauseous. I started to feel completely fine about 20 hours after I took it.
Avatar m tn can you take percet with morphine sulfate er 30mg? in other words can you mix the two together?

Avatar m tn Help please - Overactive Thyroid Hellotherehey I have recently had my third child. I am 6.5 months post partum and I have gone from 98kg to 78kg. I wasn't dieting or anything, it just kept falling off. After going to the doctor, I have been tested and I have overactive thyroids. The doctor said it should clear up on its own, and I don't need medicine? Is this right? I don't know much about this. Will I gain the weight back? Would the weight loss definitely be from the OT?
Avatar f tn t seem to fine anywhere how long after a lethal amount or a small overdose (such as 1 accidental extra dose) on top of toxicity symptoms would start to show or when death would take place. So my question is when would symptoms begin to show and when would death occur. I don't need exact times but if toxicity showed hours after an over dose and death came days after it would give me a timeline which is all I'm looking for. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Hospice intententionall dehydrates you and gives you more and more morphine to move along your death. This is suicide. The mom now is comatose from the morphine. If I can get her out of there, is it too late to reverse the effects of the morphine. My sister is power of attorney. Everytime she cried, they gave her morphine. She would tell them that she wasnt in pain. She was dep. about being there. They made her take it. This has been so devastating to watch.
Avatar n tn He received 10 mg morphine in the ambulance, then 6 mg dilaudid, 4 mg zofran, and 1 mg ativan in about an hour. He weighs 190 lbs and is 6 feet tall. He suffered cardiopulmonary arrest. Could this combination of drugs have been the culprit? He received narcan and cpr and was resuscitated, thankfully. Some docs believe it was narcotic induced and others say it was a vagel down. Can you explain this?
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, today I find out that his best friend passed away of a heroin overdose, and my boyfriend has no idea. I cannot contact him directly, but I had his mother try to contact his counselor to see what he thought was best for my boyfriends recovery. Does any addict in recovery have any input on a situation like this?

Avatar f tn Sadly he had recently been doing a detox himself and decided to catch a buzz again ... the shot was too much and he died as a result of an accidental overdose..................
Avatar f tn My family received a final decision on my sisters overdose. Her cause of death was suicide. Why would the corner rule that as she was found hovering over the tolilet trying to trow up all her Roxie's. She was on an all night drinking binge and mixing xanaxes oxies and who knows what else. It's another reminder of addictions ending. This news makes me feel overwhelming sad. Sometimes I feel so lonely now. It's a raw emotion.
