Is there a stronger pain medication than morphine for back pain?

Is there a stronger pain medication than morphine for back pain?

Not for ANYTHING: There's no stronger legal pain medicine for ANYTHING than morphine. Some people find the closely related hydromorphone aka Dilaudid to be about as effective. Only diacetylmorphine aka heroin is thought to be stronger than native morphine but of course it's Schedule I. There are times when compassionate use of heroin for really intractable pain would be rational but it won't happen in the USA. ...Read more

I'm allergic to Morphine, so will I be allergic to Oxymorphone medications also?

I'm allergic to Morphine, so will I be allergic to Oxymorphone medications also?

Opiate allergies?: It depends. Alot of folks claim to be allergic to various medications, when in fact, they have side effects. Since we do not know what your reaction was to Morphine, it's kinda hard to predict what you might experience with other drugs. My advice is to try and avoid taking Opiates on a regular basis, as you may become dependent and then have withdrawal symptoms when you don't take the Opiates. ...Read more

I'm on Percocet and Morphine ER for pain conditions and just found out I'm pregnant. What are the risks associated with taking these medications?

Neonatal abstinence: Syndrome is the major pregnancy complication. Women taking opioids for pain are also passing it along to the fetus, and depending on a variety of factors, about 70% of babies born to moms on opioids will develop a withdrawal syndrome. If possible to taper the medication in your second trimester and use alternative pain management, that would be best. It is treatable in hospitals with expertise. ...Read more

Fortunately, with the Toradol, all was well. ...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
