Discussions that mention morphine

Pain Management board

I remember when i was in the same situation.My doc was switching my meds from lortab to oxycodone.
the oxy,even though iwas taking short acting,helped so much more then the hydrocodone.

It took a couple of weeks to get used to it and i do remember within a week i was feeling much better.

It was a turning point for me as i felt that i had no choice but to have the surgery until i got good pain relief from the meds.I took oxy for 2 years before switching to MS Contin.I was given a choice between oxycontin and ms contin and i chose morphine.

it is a very good pain med but tolerance was an ongoing issue or me.
Im sure you will feel much better.
