My mom combined oxycodone with morphine, What are the possible drug interactions?

Additive: There really aren't drug "interactions" per se. One plus one equals two with these drugs, depending on the dose taken. These drugs generally should NOT be used together - if your mother is being prescribed these medications, a consultation from a trained pain physician might be helpful. If they are NOT prescribed, she shouldn't be taking them, and the addition of one to the other may be dangerous. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my mom combined oxycodone with morphine, are there any drug interactions?

Dangerous!: Both meds are powerful pain relievers in the narcotic family. Combining them could cause an overdose, and in the worst scenario your mother could stop breathing. Brain damage or death could follow. If she is in extreme pain, she needs to see her doctor and find out why. Pain relievers just mask symptoms without treating the problem. Encourage her to get help for the cause of her pain. ...Read more

Codeine: You probably took some codeine, maybe a cough suppressant. Codeine is metabolized to morphine, hydrocodone is a semi synthetic opiod. Heroin and codeine metabolize to morphine and there are several byproducts of metabolism that can be tested to pinpoint exactly what a person took even though they metabolize quickly. ...Read more

What does it mean when a dr. Tells you that you do not have the brain receptacles to a drug because it will not have no effect on accident I took about 20 morphine pills I thought they were ibuprophen tabs, family rushed me to emergency room thinking I wa

That: That is not clear to me. There must have been a mis-communication. Morphine typically causes mental status changes and respiratory depression. If a patient is chronically on morphine, then it takes more of it to be toxic to the patient. So I wonder if the doctor meant that. ...Read more

I actually have saringomyelia and so far my doctors are only able to give me drugs, taking morphine 160 mg p/day but not helping as much as use to. What should I expect from here on??? I haven't talked to anyone that has had it as long as I. I've had it

Syringomyelia: Many times pain from your condition is caused by damaged nerves. Narcotic medications are not very effective for that kind of pain, especially if you've been on them for a while. Other medicines like gabapentin or nortriptyline may be helpful in decreasing pain. They can make you tired initially, but usually that feeling goes away. ...Read more

It is commonly caused by brain injuries and strong pain medications including but not limited to morphine. Pain dissociation or having the sensation of pain without actually hurting, when it is caused by a drug usually returns to normal when the drug wears off. ...Read more

Very allergic to morphine, vicodin, and NSAIDs. Is tramadol an ok drug for me or am I likely to have allergic reaction?

Very allergic to morphine, vicodin, and NSAIDs. Is tramadol an ok drug for me or am I likely to have allergic reaction?

What is 'allergy'?: Morphine and hydrocodone cause a great deal of histamine release, which results in itching, hives, nausea and other GI symptoms, and NSAIDs can cause a great deal of stomach irritation. Neither of these are really allergies, which requires that the immune system be involved in the problem. Tramadol is chemically unrelated to either of these classes of drugs, but also can cause histamine release. ...Read more
