Discussions that mention morphine

Pain Management board

I feel the same way about Fentanyl. I had been on since last Dec. and up to the max. dose on it, which is 100mcg. I thought it was just taking the edge off and boy was I wrong, too!
My pain clinic doctor started me on Avinza 60mg once a day. Its morphine and boy does it suck. I have been sick ever since. Headaches, nausea, back pain worse that was it was before. I called the office today, but they never returned my call. So, I guess will see what happens tomorrow?
He told me there are other alternatives to meds, but this Avinza was really costly for it not to work. 60 tabs was $172.00. I hope he has something else up his sleeve.
