Discussions that mention morphine

Back Problems board


Hi all hope everyone is having a good day! My PM started me on the arthritis drug Mobic. I was really afraid to take it at first because it has a huge black box warning about heart problems and stroke, but my joints and back were so stiff I could barely move so I reluctantly took it. I will say I am not feeling perfect but I am taking way less morphine to control the pain. I was taking six a day and now I am down to only 2 or 3. The only thing is the Mobic makes me tired.So now I am napping and getting some pretty good sleep at night. what do you guys think?
