Hey guys, my doctor just changed me from lortabx4 to morphineSRx4. Boy am I sick. The morphine really helps the pain, but my stomach and nerves are having a rough go. Anybody have any suggestions?

Perhaps try methodone. I think morphine is OK but it always made me sick and if you take it you have to keep uping the dose. As you would guess it is highly addictive and withdrawing from the drug is no joke. The same is true of methodone but I don't think it is quite as rough on the system.

I was thinking maybe some of may sickness was coming from stopping the lortab. Other than the sick feeling & drowsyness it works alot better on the pain. Its pretty work to work like this. I was hoping it would go away after a while.

I think morphine states it is dangerous to operate machinery while taking this medication kind of like the percocets I am on, they are addictive but I quit driving about 5 years ago and was disabled in 2002 so who cares lol, there are days the pecocets don't even work. I even offered to let them operate on my back using an epidural, but due to the severity of my heart condition they refuse to do any type of surgery on me, none of the doctors want me being a statistic on their death charts, so they just keep me doped up, their are days I hurt so bad, I just wish it would stop, and I don;'t care how.

Sorry about your pain. Sounds like its pretty rough. They say I'm to young for another surgery???? 45, wish they had said that before the first one. My meds have made me so sick I have had to stop (sick on my stomach and can't sleep). Now the pain is back and my head feels like its going to pop. I have an mri today. If I make it today I may stay in bed tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions I sure aprreciate it.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
