Discussions that mention morphine

Pain Management board


[COLOR="Navy"]Hi Guys....

Day 4 of this Avinza. I'm not sure if I'm sold on it or not. I made it through yesterday until 4 pm before I needed BT meds. I am suffering with a minor headache. The first i've had since my back surgery three years ago. But that is one of the side effects of this "wonder" drug.

I did get up twice last night to take bt drugs as the med didn't make it through the night and I take it in the morning, as prescribed by my doctor. I don't know what to do. I guess I need to give it some time to work. I have hardly given it a fair chance yet. I had therapy last night so today will be a telling day.. I'm not sure that I will get 24 hours out of it and I sure hate the thought of losing sleep over it...and I can't! I don't have the option of napping during the day (don't I wish). Oh dear...I blathering......I don't remember that being a side effect! LOL.

I keep telling my hubby 24 hours, huh? 24 hours, huh? It seems to hold it at bay, but not as far away as the morphine. I mean the pain is gone, but the wall holding it away doesn't seem as thick or as strong. Does that make sense? this has me concerned.....
