I know what you mean. I absolutely hate taking Morphine. In my case, it didn't help the pain and made me more uncomfortable with all the itching it caused me. I respond much more to Demeral and Percocet. The Demeral isn't the most powerful pain killer, but it really knocks me out...so at least I get to sleep.
I had an emergency apt. with a pain management doctor at HSS about the pain killers I'll be taking after surgery tomorrow. They are going to try me out on Ketamine among others. I'll let you know how that works.
Everyone reacts differently to meds. I hope you're able to find something that works well for you soon.
