Hi guys! Earlier in the week I asked how many 5ml/10mg spoons of Oramorph (liquid morphine) I could take on top of my 40mg 12hrly MST (slow release morphine pills). I spoke to the GP today and He confirmed I could take 5ml/10mg every 4hrs/x6 a day. I was relieved because i'd taken 4. He said Even though i'm in alot of pain, He doesn't want to increase my dose because i'm so young. I'm going to see my hospital specialist next week. Thanks to all of you who helped and advised me it was much appreciated
