Post a Reply
The article on amifostine says it can ONLY be administered intravenously but this is NOT TRUE. Subcutaneous injection of amifostine has been shown to have the same cyctoprotective effect in the presence of radiation with reduced severity of side effects.

What are their specific uses in the management of the cancer patient? ## Morphine is a narcotic pain reliever, so in this case, it is being used to help alleviate his suffering and make him more comfortable. It may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Scopolamine helps prevent nausea and vomiting. So, it also makes sense, because the Morphine can cause nausea, as well as other cancer treatments. Its most common side effects may include: dry mouth, nose and throat. As to mixing it with the Morphine, the only thing here that needs to be watched for is the possibility of central nervous system depression, t... ...
