For the pass week I was given the green light to take morphine 5mg at dinner time. I am on 45mg of amitripline / day, hydrocodone 5mg twice a day and was tKing morphine 5mg a day. This fixed me up pretty well everyday. These are not high dose narcotics meds compared to a lot of people.
Today after a follow up, I was told not to take anymore morphine on a daily basis but only as needed. I was on the as needed plan for 3 weeks and every week I had been coming back to tell them that I struggle towards end of the working day and by the time I get home, I will fail to function towards the next day. Then it becomes a vicious cycle where I work for one day and spend 2 days after that in bed.
I've been through this cycle long enough and even though I don't like following this advice but I will. I feel like maybe it's an addiction for me but if anyone knows how flare up feels like, they don't want to go through that. Even after I had my daily dose of morphine today, I still feel a lot of pain.....I don't know what or how to tell the doctor what I'm going through, so sick and tired myself having to explain myself to everybody.
Good bye to the good week I had.
