What is there to be concerned about when taking oramorph and suffeeing primary progressive m.S.?

NO MAJOR ISSUE: Oramorph is merely a sustained release form of morphine, and unlikely to affect any variation of ms. Side effects can include constipation, drowsiness, maybe dizziness, and possible nausea. If you possess imbalance, the drug may cause additive issues, but these would be temporary. Primary progressive ms is tough to manage, and wish you the best. ...Read more

Have secondary ai, been prescribed oramorph 10mg/5ml for pain. Would 10ml dose affect me any more than anyone else? I also have slight asthma.

Caution with asthma: The medication should not necessarily have any stronger effect on you, although in general, different people may react differently to these types of medication. Caution is definitely advised in using morphine in the setting of lung diseases such as asthma though, mainly because of the risk of respiratory depression. ...Read more

I am currently on oramorph 5mg 4x daily. I get a sensation of a 'fuzzy' type feeling in my head. Can this be stopped or is it a normal side affect?

I am currently on oramorph 5mg 4x daily. I get a sensation of a 'fuzzy' type feeling in my head. Can this be stopped or is it a normal side affect?

Oramorph: You are on some stout narcotic analgesic. This is likely a side effect and should be discussed with your prescribing physician or pain specialist. I am concerned that you also list tramadol. Generally, you do not take tramadol if you are on chronic narcotic therapy as it may precipitate an acute withdrawl scenario. Don't drive or operate dangerous equip. Until this is resolved. ...Read more

If Tramadol 100mg equates to 10mg of morphine, and oramorph 5ml the same. How come oramorph is considered stronger ?

If Tramadol 100mg equates to 10mg of morphine, and oramorph 5ml the same. How come oramorph is considered stronger ?

Concentration.: I think you need to be careful with the concentration of the oramorph, since 5ml does not give any indication of the amount. If it is 10mg/5ml, then certainly that is equivalent to 10mg of morphine, and roughly equal to 100mg of Tramadol. Keep in mind, however, that different people get different results from any medication. There is no absolute "strength" when it comes to pain control. ...Read more

If tramadol usually works for my pain, should oramorph work okay for breakthrough pain ?

If tramadol usually works for my pain, should oramorph work okay for breakthrough pain ?

Probably too much: Oramorph is much stronger, and shorter lasting, than tramadol, so it may work too well, for too short of a time. It can be surprising, but sometimes these medicines do not work the same as you would expect. Their effects vary from person to person. If tramadol usually worked, normally naproxen, amitriptyline or gabapentin would help for remaining pain. ...Read more

How much Oramorph is safe to take in a day ? My dosage is 5ml/10mg.

Prescribed dose : Oramorph can be taken by different patients in greatly different doseages. The medication is safe at greatly varying dose but dependent on numerous factors. If you are asking about safe dose, my presumption is that your doctor has not prescribed a dose more than the 10mg you mentioned. You really need to explain to your MD that you are not getting pain relief so MD can give you safe/correct dose ...Read more
