Medication

Hi Guys

Just throwing a random question out here and asking what strong medication are you guys on as i am on morphine tablets but due to me having crohns my body doesnt absorb it like it should therefore it takes a higher dosage to take effect but before i ask my doctor tomorrow wondered what other people are taking and if they take effect like they should

Hi Chris, I've tried loads but result is always the same cant tolerate them, I'm on Lyrica max dose, citalopram and dosulupin plus as much paracetomol that I want :yikes: none of which has very much effect but does do a little :hugs: :wave:

thanks guys

You have all been so helpful and forthcoming and friendly, but i went to the doctors and she has raised my morphine levels by 40mg so am 60mg a day looking to go onto patches in the next fortnight though, my wife does have to watch me for the next 48 hrs with me not long going into a morphine induced coma so people have to watch how my body reacts with it again :woot: :woot:

watch this space :grouphug: :flowers:

:goodluck1: Hope it eases your pain.

(((( a tip for you-- you might get constipated by the morphine, lactulose is a good laxative to use. :oops: ))))

I know from first hand experience when they used to pump me with morphine every two hours for nearly two weeks and the hospital never told me it would cause constipation but when i did go and this is going to sound awful but i ripped and bled all over the shower room in the hospital but all they offered me was 1 and i mean ONE Bloody senakot tablet how bad is that but anyway saw the rhuematologist who i found very rude and condisending i asked him about Fibromyalgia and i only got the word out of my mouth and he said you haven't got that so dont be silly??????
