Talk to your doctor: Why not speak to your prescribing physician in order to have a tapering schedule taking into account your past medical history, rationale for being on these medications, and overall health status? Without these details, it is difficult at best to be able to provide a way to address this issue. Strongly suggest you speak to your local doctor regarding this. ...Read more

Will Xanax (alprazolam) help with morphine withdraw symptoms? I've read that benzos can help. I have script for xanax (alprazolam). Could I take 1/day?

Will Xanax (alprazolam) help with morphine withdraw symptoms? I've read that benzos can help. I have script for xanax (alprazolam). Could I take 1/day?

Yes it can.: Benzodiazepines such as xanax (alprazolam) can help curb symptoms of opiate withdrawal. It is not wise to take them regularly, as then you will be replacing the opiate with the xanax (alprazolam). They can be very addicting as well. Be careful when you take them and try to spread them out infrequently if at all possible. ...Read more

I take 2mgs of xanax (alprazolam) 3x daily (started at .5mg 4x 35 years ago). Is 10mgs oxycodone 2x and 15mgs morphine ER 2x for back diseases safe with the xanax (alprazolam)?

It is not safe: Taking that much of an opiate can be deadly if not under the care of an experienced MD, preferably a pain specialist. According to the CDC, accidental deaths due to opiates (hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine) cause 44 deaths PER DAY! This is an epidemic, so it is pretty safe to say that opiates are NOT safe medications unless under the CLOSE supervision of a Dr! http://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/epidemic/index.html ...Read more

Poppy seed muffins: Are a frequent cause for false-positive morphine urine drug screens. Poppy seeds can also be found in salad dressings, and on bagels. A GC/ MS test of your urine can quantify and definitively identify the substances in your urine. A low amount of morphine on the GC/ MS would most likely be from ingestion of poppy seeds. Talk to your physician about these possibilities. ...Read more

Does morphine relieve anxiety?

Morphine can lower: Anxiety, but using it for that would be like killing a house fly with a cannon. Better anxiolytics are Ativan, Xanax, (alprazolam) Valium; although all of these can also be addicting. Morphine can actually increase anxiety, especially if you have an allergy to it, or to its nor-metabolites. Why are you anxious? Here's a reference:

Actiq and morphine patches help?

No & Maybe: Actiq shouldn't be used for non-cancer pain. Tolerance develops rapidly because of the rapid, intense effect. This results in the need for higher and higher doses over a very short time. This med is most appropriate for patients not expected to survive for more than several months as the med becomes less effective rapidly. Fentanyl patches may be more appropriate. See a pain specialist. ...Read more
