How Long Does Withdrawal Take From Morphine

Updated
Mark from Mississippi Says:

My Dr. switched me from the pain patch 75's changing it every three days. To Embeda 50 mg once a day. Now I am about to die from withdrawal effects. I don't understand because they are both opiate meds why switching from one to the other should matter. Please help !!!

Hello, Mark! How are you feeling?

Did he have you just directly switch from one to the other, with no break in between?

If so, that's likely what's created the problem. Embeda contains Morphine and Naltrexone and, if you aren't already in full withdrawal, the Naltrexone can throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I want to ween myself off of all my pain medication as soon as possible! I have been on a several different forms of opiates for 11 years now. Over the last five years I went from exalgo to what I am now on, Embeda 50/2 ER one a day at bedtime and Hydocodone 10/325 for breakthrough pain. How can I do this safely and how long will it take? I want to start as soon as possible. It takes forever to get into my doctor! Can I use the Hydrocodone to get me through it? I have a over 60 pills left. That is more than enough right? I need help asap please! Thank you!
