I have a bad back. I am suppose to take the morphine when I wake up and one 12hrs later. In between I take oxycodone for pain. The thing is I do not notice a difference at all when I take the morphine. Is that normal? When I think of morphine I think whoa..major drug. I just do not notice a difference in the pain at all. Is this normal or do I have defective meds? I do not want to take more then the dr says but im in pain!! help please!
Hi molovekayak; are you a fellow kayaker ? There is a major argument in this country, an others , over the strength of name brand drugs (drugs with a factory authorized name) and Generics, or drugs with a REAL name. I'd better give you an example: ANTI-DEPRESSANT DRUG:... "Zoloft" ( The factory or commercial name of the drug is "ZOLOFT... (the Generic name of the drug is "SERTRALINE"! ) Years ago, each drug had one name and one very high price. Then some V.I.P. from BIG-PHARMA came up with a brilliant idea... Each drug, after X amt. of years of making big money under the Co. name, will revert to it's real or Generic name, and become cheaper("so the poor can afford it"! HaH!) "whoopie" said the poor people , thank you very much BIG-PHARMA. Well , unknown to the poor , they were now paying the very much cheaper price that they should have been paying years ago, when all was one. So the poor got screwed again for many more years. But pricing arguments get old and the "need for greed" gets greater, SO, Big-Pharma had to come up with a new moneymaking plan , and they knew they weren't fooling the poor again. "Lets mess with the drugs this time said "BIG-PHARMA. Don't touch the prices (Well , maby a little ,touch ! !) So basically what "BIG- PHARMA has done to fool people again is weaken both named drugs (1/2 to 3/4 strength,& are raking in the excess profit while they. sit back and watch what happens, as they know that sooner or later , "The Fools... You & Me , will show them what we will be foolish enough to fall for next ! ! ... ME, what am I gonna' do? ? I'M GOIN" NATIVE , i'm studyin' the old ways, you know trees bushes, vitamins, plants, Minerals etc.I feel,the only reason we got into this drug ripoff in the beginning was we humans got too smart and too lazy for our own damn good. I am of the firm belief that the "Power That Is God" created a cure for every disease that man & animal will have. (Like Marijuhana! !) or
(Calcium ,Magnesium sources Like ROCK? )
THIS IS MY THEORY... THERE ARE OTHERS, YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK OUT... OR PERHAPS YOU HAVE YOUR OWN THEORY ? IF SO , PLEASE INFORM US OF YOUR THEORY , AS THIS IS A REAL MONEY MESS & BIG-PHARMA WITH THE POWER OF THE F.D.A. BEHIND IT , SEEMS TO BE BLEEDING THE POOR ? ! ? (:->) Sacosam
