I have recently been suffering a MAJOR sinus infection...let me start off my saying I have taken tylenol and advil for all of my adult life...the 'hardest drug' has been Tylenol 3 with codeine. I am posting here becuase yesterday I went to the hospital, because I was in sooooooo much pain...They checked me out and ended up giving me a shot of morphine....a 5 mg shot to be exact. Is that a lot of a little?? I am very tall and weigh about 250 pounds.....but i didnt feel a thing!!! When I hear people talk about morphine, it seems like they were living high on a cloud....and for me, I didn't feel stoned AT ALL......I drove home from the hospital...and then I took 2 percs which I had at home....and still didnt feel relief.....is this normal?? What are other people's tolerance for pain medication like this...and what, if anything should I ask for in the future?

Morphine is very potent and usually the first choice for treating pain in a hospital setting, but 5mgs is a fairly low dose and depending on the severity of your pain, it is understandable that it may not have done much.

I was in pain a few years ago, from severe Gastritis and they gave me 3mgs in the Ambulance on the way to the hospital and it really didn't touch my pain, either.

Another medication that they will sometimes use in the ER that can be much more effective is Dilaudid, so you may want to ask about it. It's also available in tablet form.
