: Mom has been fighting blood system spread cancer. She is now taking Navelbine treatment. Morphine dosage is half of what it was 3 weeks ago. Yet she roams around like a drunk, walks down the road alone at 11:00 pm, stumbles when she walks and talks like a child. We have to watrch her around the clock. She is going to see another docotr tomorrow to discuss this situation. But I was wondering has anyone else encountered this type of behavior.
: When it first started we thought it was the morphine but now we are really worried.
: Thanks Teressa
i would agree with artemis, she's taking navelbine, that's an experimental drug usually for non small cell lung cancer. if it has spread to the brain, you need to know. also, if not maybe this is a side effect she's having from the navelbine, and it should be stopped. certain chemo agents can produce nuro problems, i don't know if navelbine is one of them.
