MY. P.C.P. HAS PUT ME ON A REGIME OF ANTI-PAIN MEDS' & I'M WONDERING WHY SO MANY DIFFERENT ONES', & NOT JUST A HIGHER DOSE OF ONE OR THE OTHER. THESE PRESCRIPTIONS ARE TAKEN @ DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY. THEY ARE LISTED HERE & I HOPE YOU CAN BETTER INFORM, ME AS TO: WHATS TAKEN PLACE????
OXYCODONE HCL 5 MG TAB. I'M INSTRECTED TO TAKE TAKE 2 TABLETS 'EVERY SIX HOURS'
NEXT IS MORPHINE SO4 15MG SA TABLETS, I'M TO TAKE =TWICE DAILY BY MOUTH FOR PAIN!!! I WAS ALSO A LONG TIME AGO PUT ON CLONAZEPAM 0.5MG TAB. OF THIS MED/INSTRUCTIONS ARE TAKE 3 DURING THE DAY & THEN @ BEDTIME TAKE 2 ADDITIONAL TABLETS, FOR A TOTAL OF 5 x 0.5MG TABLETS DAILY
NEXT BECAUSE OF A TERRIBLE TIME SLEEPIN HE PRESCRIBED TRAZODONE HCL 50MG ONLY ONE @ BEDTIME
BUT IM ALSO TAKIN SEVERAL PSYCOTROPIC DRUGS'. IM TAKIN SEROQUEL, 600 MG DAILY, DEPAKOTE1500 MG DAILY, & LITHIUM 300MG @ BEDTIME & NUMEROUS OTHER MEDICATIONS. WHEN I RECEIVED MY LAST DRUG LIST, IT SHOWED THAT ALL TOTAL, I WAS TAKIN A TOTAL OF 34, DIFFERENT MEDICTIONS. FOR EVERYTHING FROM COPD TO NASAL INHALERS, TO PROSTATE (ENLARGED).
TERAZOSIN, NEXT TO ASPIRIN, SYNTHROID FOR HYPOTHYROID, TO ALLERGY MEDICATIONS. I'M ALSO A TYPE 2 DIABETIC & TAKE ORAL METFORMIN & USUALLY @ LEAST 10-20 UNITS INJECTED OF LANTUS INSULIN. I MEAN I COULD KEEP GOING BUT I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE BRUNT OF THE MATTER??
I RECENTLY WENT ON THE INTERNET TO REAL AGE.COM WHICH IS DR. OZ'S GROUP OF EXPERTS, OPRAH'S DR. WITH THE TV SHOW SHE STARTED FOR HIM. HE HAS A VERY LONG QUESTIONNAIRE, ASKING ABOUT FAMILY HISTORY, PARENTS-SIBLINGS, ETC. WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO LIST ALL MY MEDS & DIAGNOSIS ETC. IT TOOK ME APPRX. 1 1/2 HOURS TO COMPLETE HIS QUESTIONING, WHICH HE STATED MOST PEOPLE COULD COMPLETE IT IN ABOUT 30 MINS OR LESS. WELL AS I STATED AFTER LISTING ALL MY PRESCRIBED & OTC DRUGS I WAS TAKING, & DIAGNOSIS, HIS VERY LONG LIST OF PROFESSIONALS HE GIVES ALL THIS INFORMATION. THEN AFTER ALL HIS GROUPS, HOSPITALS, DOCTORS, CLINICS, ON & ON HE STATED IN HIS PROGRAM ON THE INTERNET, IT WOULD BE WITHIN A FEW HOURS I WOULD RECEIVE AN E-MAIL BACK FROM HIM & HIS PEOPLE, WITH THE RESULTS OF ALL THE DATA, I HAD PASSED ON TO REAL AGE .COM.
WELL I WAITED & WAITED & WAITED & FINALLY THE NEXT DAY I WAS GIVEN MY RESULTS, FROM ALL I TOLD HIS PEOPLE. WELL THIS WAS VERY DISHEARTENING - THE RESULTS CAME BACK THE NEXT DAY TO TELL ME THAT ALL HIS EXPERTS HAD SCRUTINIZED MY INFO & THIS WAS THEIR CONCLUSION:
I WAS TOLD THAT MY CHRONILOGICAL AGE WAS @ THAT TIME 58.4 YEARS OLD, BUT AFTER REVIEWING THE RESULTS MY ACTUAL AGE GIVING ME YEARS OF THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT BECAUSE OF MY FAMILY'S RESULTS & THEIR MEDICAL INFORMATION HE COULD ONLY SAY THAT MY ACTUAL AGE WAS 79.9 YEARS OF AGE. SO IN OTHER WORDS MY HEALTH WISE I WAS ACTUALLY APPROX. 21.5 YEARS OLDER THAN MY CHRONOLOGICAL AGE. SHOULD HAVE SHOWN.
I KNEW I WAS FEELING OLDER THAN I REALLY WAS BUT OH BROTHER!! WHAT A BLOW THAT WAS TO MY MORALITY. THEN ANOTHER THING THAT WAS BROUGHT UP WAS THAT, I MOST DEFINITELY NEEDED TO STAY ON ALL MY TREATMENTS @ THAT TIME OR THINGS COULD GET WORSE.
THANK ALL YA'LL WHO LISTENED. ANY HELP OR SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED! I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT ALL MY PRESCRIPTIONS.

freddie - it appears there is more than one doctor envolved , and with so many different drugs overlaping , you might want to go back to the doctor you have most confidence in ... to ask him "why so many" and what are the *side effects of so many . good luck .
Is it OK to take morphine 15 mg (a little blue tablet) with a hydrocodone 5/500 at the same time? I have the both of them and neither is working separately so I figured taking them together would be the best bet. but I figured I would get some advice first.

I think thst is a little meds I'm on quite a bit. I'm decreasing doses of my AMITRIPTYLINE . I wad the one who asked for an increase. Actually I was very depressed because of my pain. So I get around much better. I'm going to take my Welbutrin from 300 mg co a day to 150 I'm able to take xanax .5 4 times a day I'm down to 2 a day 3 0n bad days. CRESTOR I'm leaving that dose alone. Not recommending anyone do this without talking to your Dr first!! I told mine so, I'm not even close to the depression state I was in 2 years ago in another state they took my linoleum xanaxOxycodone , I was in a cold place high in elevation oh what he'll! I know what it's like to get tossed from Dr to Dr and be discriminated against. Kinda off topic but I know there are soooo many posts and ppl can't legitimately get relief from pain even with diagnostic Mri s and such.....it was 2. Years til I could get outta that hell hole.

Ask ur md to up ur dose of Gabapentin, you aren't on very much, and you may b able to control your pain without narcotics. I take 300mg 3x's per day and spent the last year reducing my dose of morphine (tr and ir) at my highest I was on over 1260mg morphine daily. It took a year and 4 months to do this with (only) 4 hospital trips for extreme withdrawal, as once I start puking, I can't keep my saliva down. I've made it 41 hours with just 1 15mg m.sulphate, next time I plan to make it at least 2 days. These withdrawal symptoms must be in my head, but stopping this drug had been a year of hell. Try the non-narcotic way if at all possible, you will have better quality of life, this I promise....and yes, I still have mega tons of pain. Fibro, chronic fatigue, Chron's, and sjograns, not a happy mix.
What would happen if u take 525mg of morphine and 3,000mg of seroquel? Need to know asap

I can only tell you about the way I take my gabapentin, I also take morphine, hydrocodone, trazadone (night only) baclofen, Prozac. I need 600 mg a day of gabapentin so I have 1 in the am, 2 tabs at lunch and 3 tabs at bedtime. It seems to help my drowsiness that occurs during the day.
