My daughter is having a hard time controlling pain. Currently on morphine but wants to get off it due to stomach issues. Phentenol patch made her nauseated.

Anybody have any good suggestions that we can discuss with pain doc tomorrow?

Tried Percocet, didn't help. Neurontin gave her bad shakes.

She has problems swallowing pills, anybody have any thought about methadone? I know that comes in dissolvable wafers.

I saw a documentary on methadone. While studies show it works well on a lot of pain, it has a super-long half life.

It builds up in the system, and the same dose over time can cause overdose without careful monitoring.

That's all I remember about the show.

Thanks Keebler, she's gluten free and is on curcumin when she's keeping food down.

Curcumin helps me a LOT! I also take glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM combo... and Omega 3's.

Marinol, which is the thc of the marijuana plant. It really works, but side effects are dizziness and of course you are going to want food more often.

It does control pain.

Just sharing my experience, I am not a doctor.

Glucosamine - at least one form of it (not sure about all) should not be used by those with lyme, according to the authors here:

http://www.townsendletter.com/FebMar2006/lyme0206.htm

THE BIOCHEMISTRY OF LYME

3/4 of the way down, Excerpt:

[section] Carbohydrates Consumed by Lyme Spirochete

An effort to determine which carbohydrates Bb consumes revealed that the organism utilizes the monosaccharides glucose, mannose and N-acetylglucosamine, as well as the disaccharides maltose and chitobiose.

A popular treatment for arthritis includes the administration of chondroitin sulfate and N-acetylglucosamine.

If the arthritis is Lyme-induced, N-acetylglucosamine is contraindicated. 22 (See Chart 14.)
