Morphine Sulphate Tablets

Posted , 3 users are following.

I broke my back during army service and spent many years on one different pain medication after another,none of which really helped me at all..I was finally refered to a good pain management specialist and he changed my medication to Morphine Sulphate tablets,the change in my pain levels dropped by over 50% almost over-night and I went from taking up to 15 tablets a day to just four.

    I take MST too but in capsule form. I have been taking these since a RTA in January as I had 8 breaks in my knees and shoulder.

    I take Zomorph morphine sulphate (MST) 40mg per day. I'm due to have a knee replacement in October and then two ops on my other knee to repair torn ligaments.

    i'm hoping when my knees heal I can come off MST but I believe they are very addictive.

      Hi christine 

      I've been taking 40mg of MST since my motorbike accident in January 

      On first taking oramorph and MST I was sick for about a week and then I was ok. I only take oramorph on occasion now. The oramorph I took 2 or 3 times a day or less depending on the pain.

      If both medicine are not touching your pain have a chat with your doctor 

      hope this helps x
