Re: A model pain relief program for you
That is so great that you are finally getting some relief, I know you must be so happy. Taking 2 advil couldn't hurt, 1 is such a low amount. As for the doxepin, I'd wait and see how you do another night. If that does is doing the trick then you don't need to go up for now. Save the uppage for when you really need it. As for the Morphine question, yes if one takes too much morphine it can inhibit your respirations to the point of being deadly, but bascially so can most narcotics and especially if you take multi narcotics at high doses, so I'm not sure why your doc was hung up on Morphine. You can't worry about the dangers all the time or you'll drive yourself crazy, because as you said there are dangers to all these drugs. I take 120mg of MS Contin (which is morphine) a day and I'm fine. I've also taken high doses of Oxycontin and Fentanyl and I was fine....so just take your meds, live in the moment and be thankful for the rest and the feeling better, really that's all we can do.
