I like to know if there is a better way, I go through this cycle of feeling withdrawl symptoms (nausia,body aches,headache,sweating,just a feeling of being sick). to taking my meds, then have some releif for a short while then slowly back to the sick feeling. I go through this 3 or more times daily depending how much I sleep that day. should I adjust my meds or concentrate on the withdrawl symptoms? I am taking morphine sulfate ER 45 mg x 3 and morphine sulfate IMM REL 15mg x 3 for the breakthrough pain, Lyrica 75mg x 3, promethazine 30mg x 3 (for nausia). What gives? it's like being on a roller coaster. Although the Morphine does provide some releif, it seems short lived.

Are you trying to stop your medication? I am unsure what you are asking?

I'm not quite sure also, but it sounds like you need to talk to your doctor about possibly changing your medications. If you're on a roller coaster type ride from them, they're not being prescribed correctly. Please get an appointment as soon as you can and let us know how it goes.

I have in the past put some other postings here, thanks. at this point I don't feel I can stop taking medication for the pain I have I just would like to get a handle on things, I do have a Dr. appointment 1-18. I will continue to keep updates here on the progress.
