Opium Tincture

I am a colon cancer survivor. Due to losing 9" of large intestines and all but 1" of rectum, I experience severe diarrhea and resulting horrendous rectal pain. My oncologist prescribed Tincture of Opium. As the name implies, this is serious medicine. I nursed my first prescription so it lasted four years (Feb. 2006 to Feb. 2010), second prescription three years (Feb. 2010 to June 2013). When I picked up third prescription and got home with it, it did not look the same and the name was different, "C-Morphine 10 MG/1ML SUSP AKA-Opium Tincture #118". So silly me, I thought it was a generic. The first time I had an episode of diarrhea and the accompanying rectal pain, I was bedridden for hours before the pain eased off to an endurable ache. My Tincture usually worked within ...

ELIMINATE TASTE of opium when taking it.

I have been swollowing 3 drops 3 times per day of Tincture of Opium for the past 8 months. 1 week ago I put the 3 drops into a geletin capsule and swollowed it, eliminating the contact with the tongue etc.I have been taking the opium that way ever since. I drink a half glass of water with the capsule and then while it desolves in the stomach (about 20 minutes) I sip a little water during that time. My reasoning for the extra water is because when it desolves it is in a more concentrated form and might harm something.Each day since I started this I have noticed an improvement in the taste of food, not that tinny overpowering taste.WOW!! No more horrible taste when taking the medicine. Does anyone see anything wrong with this idea? The dropper puts the drops into the capsule so easy. ## T...
