    Hi!
    Went to my pain doctor yesterday and he upped my duragesic patch from 25 mcg. to 50 mcg. He did have me using the oxy IR, but I seemed to have some side effects from it, and stopped taking it. Now he has prescribed the Morphine IR in a 10 mg dosage. He said that this was a low dose. When I went to the pharmacy to get it filled, they said they don't even make it in 10 mg. They had to call the doctor to verify the dose, so I left it and returned this morning. Well they DO make a 10 mg., but they don't stock it so it won't be available to pick up until Tuesday. I was just curious how it worked for others, any side effects and how you would rate the effectivness of it. Thanks! : )

    It is the fast-acting form of Morphine and has been very helpful to stop my pain. The time-release stuff knocked me out for about 30 hrs. I seldome have to use it anymore since taking the Guai.

    Love, Mikie

    Thank you for responding to my post! Hopefully there are a couple more people out there that have tried it also! : )
