I have had 4 back surgeries and am in severe, chronic pain 24/7. I fall from the pain and sometimes pass out because it is so strong. I have an implanted Spinal Cord Stimulator and my dr. wants to implant a pump which I am not crazy about because of the medication severe side effects and problems w/the pump itself. I would like to try Levorphenol. Given my history,would it be helpful? Signed shortie
Levorphanol is a narcotic analgesic similar to morphine and can be taken with your other medications. The only things you need to be aware of is the sedating effects of this combination of meds particularly with the tizinadine. and the depressant effects on the central nervous system and respiratory system. Taking the levorphanol with the morphine might be too much opoid analgesic. Probably need to choose one or the other.
Good luck and hope you get releif soon,
Is it a morphine pump they want to implant? I've beein in pain 24/7 for 18 years and I was offered a similar pump but was put off by the fact that there would be a large dose of morphine inside me and if I was involved in a car accident, then it could split open and that would be it. I know it can send you to sleep, but sometimes sleep can be good because it gets you through the bad pain. Give it some serious thought before having the drug pump. You could also take an anit'sick drug like domperidone 10mg if you're sick with it. These really work well. My hospital is cutting back on the spinal stimulators, I've been waiting for one for five years but they are very good for your legs. Try to persevere with stimulator and try resting more and let the drugs send you to sleep. At least while you're asleep, you're not experiencing the pain, even if your muscles move involuntary during your sleep.Good luck and try to stay calm, it's one of the things I don't often do myself.
