How long should you stay on morphine?
I have been suffering from chronic low back pain for a little more than a year now. It’s especially painful when I lay down to go to bed—so I don’t get much sleep! About a month ago, my doctor put me on morphine to control the pain. The good news is that it seems to help with the pain, but the bad news is that I feel dizzy and out of it half of the time. Should I be worried about this? How long should I stay on morphine? Could it potentially have negative effects on my body and/or mind if I use it long-term?
