morphine

Postby debs67 » Sun May 10, 2015 5:12 pm

Saw my consultant and he says that there is no more they can do for me concerning my fibro. I have had physio, accupuncture 5 sessions , cortizone injections and to no avail. My doctor has mentioned morphine. Has anyone else had it and what effect does it have ?

CONSTIPATION.......That is all I have to say about that!

I have been on morphine patches for a year and found them great and so much better that rattling with tablets. I have had no side effects from them. hope this helps you decide

I have been taking morphine slow release tablets now for a couple of years, the only side effect I have is constipation but I take lactulose to counteract that. I also have morphine oral solution for the times when the rest of my medication just doesn't cut through the pain. I have to be honest and say I wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning without it.

I've been on morphine patches for a few years now and I don't have any problems.

Hubby takes oramorph and he doesn't have any problems either.

I was on morphine for 2 years and was told to come off it as it has no affect on fibromyalgia, apparently only amitriptyline and tramadol work, I would never take morphine again now after the hassle I had coming off it.

Ive been on Morphine slow release for a while now and I also have Oramorph for break thru pain, and I have to say that without it I wouldnt be here as the pain was so bad I just couldnt cope and wanted it all to stop. The only down side is the constipation but Lactulose helps with that.
The only worry Ive had is since this new ruling about Drug Driving ... Has anyone been advised against driving whilst on Morphine? My nurse said I should be ok but its always playing on my mind.

Re: morphine

I was on a high dose of Fentanyl that is stronger than morphine for almost 8 years. I am no longer on it and even though I have nothing for the pain I am so glad to be off it.

The long term side effects of a narcotic are not good and withdrawal is horrible.

At one time oxycontin was "the miracle drug" for pain as was Fentanyl, however the effects long term for chronic pain has been considered and no longer acceptable to the medical board here. It works for short relief but then you need more or other drugs to deal with the pain.

I have been dealing with fibro for over 25 years and tried all the recommended drugs, injections etc. My opinion, and only an opinion.....none of these drugs work long term. If I can find new ways, drug free, of coping I feel it will be beneficial to my long term health.

I take 20mg slow release Oxycontin am and pm and it works well with managing my pain. I also take Baclofen which is a muscle relaxant and 45mg Mirtizapine each evening. I have been taking this combination of medication since September last year and it really has been a life saver. I was practically bed bound and now I am up and about and even horse riding again. I have no side effects from the Oxy at all xox

I do not think and never said that it isn't the patient's responsibility. Of course it is. I was merely commenting on the legal aspect.

Well it's clear from the link, and the people I've spoken to, that people *should* be safe if they take a "prescribed dose". So I do think it's okay to say that, albeit with a caveat.
