I was in instivise care for two and half days from morphine overdose. I was in hospital all togather for four days. My kidneys was reading high like 1600 which they said it should be between 35 to 135 what ever that means. I would like to know what the long term effects of my whole body is. They worked with me for hour or two in the emeregency room.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am sorry to hear about the problem with your kidneys. Once you have been having problems with overdosage with medications especially opioids, kidney damage may be normal. I also believe that you will do well with consulting a psychiatrist who is experienced in drug abuse problems so as to get the appropriate treatment. Other organs may also be involved and you should consult a psychiatrist to make sure that you get a complete check up to make sure that your other organs are healthy.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
