View Full Version : Anybody else on Morphine?
06-15-2011, 07:31 PM
First off sorry if this is in the wrong area but it seems best to ask here rather than elsewhere. Feel free to move this thread.
So here's the thing I've on 100mg morphine ER 3x daily and roxy 15's 4x daily for a few years now.
Now I have toughened up to some of the withdraws from morphine seeing as how I get piss tested and I've had to stop all meds for up to 2 weeks some times just to make sure those little pills I have show up if I am tested.
Now here's the thing, If I am withdrawing from morphine the only thing that helps it is either A) Morphine or B) Lope. All of the oxy, hydro,codeine,etc. in the world won't shake it whatsoever.
Am I the only one? Or is this common among morphine users?
Sorry for the long post but needed to ask.

Hmm sounds strange. I have experienced the opposite situation. I was extremely dependent on Oxy's for a year. Towards the end I was doing 60 mg's at a time, and doing a total of eight 30 mg pills a day. I had no oxy left however I had a bunch of morphine. I took two 100 mg morphine orally in one sitting and hardly felt any relief whatsoever. I suppose that once a person is used to a particular opiate that others might not be as effective. But in my experience suboxone was incredible for withdrawals.

I know this thread is old but I have something to add.
I am scripted Avinza for CP. Before I started on Avinza I was scripted ever increasing doses of 10/325 Norcos, at the end I was prescribed 6 a day, but taking 12 - 14 a day.
Long story short, I was in severe hydrocodone W/D when I went to my first appt with my new PM doctor. He put me on equi-potent doses of Avinza, and was honest with me in saying that the first week I would be in mild W/D, simply because my brain was so used to the hydroC, and that it would take my brain some time to adjust and begin to recognize the morphine instead of the hydroC.
....so when you're taking morphine and then you switch to another opiate/oid for W/D relief, chances are you won't get the same relief right away, kind of like trying to use a key on a locked door, but the locks have changed.
I don't understand this, but after that first week of being on morphine after several months of HydroC, I started getting better pain relief and even a buzz at my scripted dose.
If any mods want to close this, go for it. I just wanted to add my experience to this without starting a new thread.

Morphine is my DOC, but I have no problem getting off with a decent amount of Oxy. So I guess my answer doesn't reinforce your experience.
I can't feel any amount of hydro anymore though :(
I guess I'm no longer Ape for it.
It really is two totally different highsthough. It's almost like you have to train your brain to accept the different stimuli each substance produces.
I like them all, but M now holds the dearest place in my heart.
Never had the pleasure of trying oxym, hydrom, or H yet, however. So things may change and there's still adventure to be had. I'm pretty sure I can convince my PM to script me opana IR for breakthru next time. Oxy just doesn't cut it anymore unless I take a monster dose (which I just did.)
Did I mention how much I love you all today.............

Probably just quantity...with a serious daily morphine habit, especially ers which just never get out of your system, seems like a real oilburner of a dope habit, and it would take heroin or methadone or dilaudids or some serious shit to kick out withdrawals...I mean, I get sick enough, *anything* would make me feel better, but it was usually temporary, and the sickness comes back....usually, tho, there's no chart on any of this that I totally trust...sometimes I've walked away from habits I thought would nail me to my bed when I ran out, and other times I've gotten sick off stupid propoxyphene runs. Only thing I know for sure is that if you are puttting in enough extended release dope or methadone, where your body never gets a break, you'll be pretty damned sick, and all rules are out the window...who knows how many organs in your body are affected, and your mental outlook too, is so affected by the constant endorphins that I don't know how anybody crawls out of that hell. It was easier to kick before I learned all about it, and I got more fear of withdrawals, longer I was in the game...But I don't think it matters all that much which types of opiates I get, more like how strong they are, and how much of them I can get hold of....
