Taking Ms Contin (morphine) for chronic pain. I'm allergic to it. Can you suggest an alternative pain medication other than oxy, perc, vicodin?

In brief: Herbs

Medicinal cannabis if it is legal in your state is an alternative to narcotic pain medications.
Also eating a more alkaline diet my help. Acupuncture. Deep meditation. There are various herbs but this is not my specialty. Recommend following up with a pain management specialist and/or homeopathic specialist. There are also doctors of natural medicine possibly in your area.
