If what you meant to say is it o.k to take I.V pain meds orally I can't think of any reason why you couldn't,why you would if it's prescribed to be taken I.V you would want to take it orally doesn't make sense because it would not be as effective if taken orally,but I wouldn't worry about anything bad happening. I would call a pharmacy & get there opinion first just in case. Good luck.
If you are in fact asking about taking IV medication orally, then no, I wouldn't do that without a doctor's supervision. Some IV medicines can be taken orally and some can't. IV medications are usually administered in a drip form, so knowing how much of the medication to take at one time would be paramount in not accidentally overdosing. So it's a really risky way to take your medication without your doctor's instructions
No it isn't but why would you be asking about an IV med that you couldn't give yourself any way??? IV or intravenous is slow and in a drip... you can get a nasty, adverse reaction like paralyzing your throat depending on what the med is. I don't know how you got a hold of a script for an IV med??? The only meds I have ever gotten via IV I had to go to the hospital where they were administered. My insurance didn't allow for an IV team to come to my house, for instance. Is this a curiosity question to see if there are others ways to get the medication because of the inconvenience of the I.V???
A little more information would be so helpful in answering this seemingly simple question. It isn't though... so simple I mean...
That is correct. Also, meds metabolize in the stomach differently than in the blood. Nothing like throwing it all up. But that would be good since you would be overdosing by drinking it... Prescriptions are written for a reason. Please follow the directions. And, no, never take liquid morphine and such orally. I doubt you would live long enough to get help...
