Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXX,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Let me explain you about morphine .
This is most potent and effective pain killer.
Why not effective?
You became addictive of morphine (15 mg S R ) .
Only option either increase the dose or get rid off this drug.
Tramadol is also opioid analgesic but less potent than morphine .
Gabapentine is Neuropathic pain reliever, mainly uses in Neuropathic pain.
In my opinion consult a psychiatrist and get his opinion .
Good luck.Dr. HET
