On Morphine for chronic pain, increase the dose when pain increases. Any alternative to manage pain for some time ?
Hello I have been taking Morphine for over a year for chronic pain and for the first time I have gone way to my sisters house overnight and left my medication at home. The minimum dose I take is 30mg Morphine Sulphate but have prescription for 50 mg - I take the higher dose when the pain to too much. It is a 12 hour slow release. Due to take overnight dose at 11.00pm in 50 mins time. If I leave to until tomorrow I cannot get to a normal chemist until after 10.00am. can you advise me what to do. I have paracetamol with me and have also taken this on top 1000mg. Our times daily as needed.
fOR PARACETAMOL THE MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED DOSE Is 2000 mg per day, If you are not able to get any other pain reliever you can increase your dose to this level but avoid if able to, till you get to chemist and get your prescription medicine
