    Ugh...

    So SWIM took 15mg morphine sulfate last night for the first time. He's tried oxies, vicodin, codeine, and methadone before, so he thought he knew what to expect with another opiate. About 3 hours later SWIM's stomach began feeling extremely heavy and not quite in pain, but as if there was a large mass stuck somewhere inside his abdominal region. After about 5 min the feeling subsided, and he decided not to worry about it anymore. But this morning, when he woke up his stomach was in extraordinary pain.

    In the past, SWIM has felt severely intense pains in his stomach while on the toilet, though they felt more like spikes digging through his intestines, and this morning the pain felt more blunt rather than pointed but nonetheless incredibly painful. SWIM ran back and forth from his room to the bathroom several times before finally being able to sit down and boot up his computer.

    I don't know if this has been an allergic reaction or a combination of eating bad food (as in greasy chicken wings and spaghetti) before taking the pill. Any ideas on what it could be or anyways on how to prevent this from happening again? The pain was so absurd that SWIM doubts he'll eat his other 15mg dose

    SWIM would try it on an empty stomach. Some will probably say that make make nausea/pain worse but SWIM has had no problems what so ever with morphine on an empty stomach(or with just some GFJ and tums haha). SWIM has had problems taking pills after eating or with food in my stomach though.

    Really 15mg is a small dose, your pain is strange maybe just a one time thing. SWIM doesn't think that SWIY could be allergic to the morphine itself if SWIY had taken other opiates before, but I may be wrong. Perhaps some filler in the pill would be a thought?

    was it a pill or capsule?
    possibly reaction to other ingredients tho these are usually inert like gelatine in caps ( ugh )
    is it possible that if swiy uses opiates that swiy could have constipation? just a thought
    and of course yes it could have been your choice of food before hand.
    swim takes morphine but in a syrup form ( oramorph ) and has never experienced a problem regardless of food eaten etc. codeine tho does give swim belly ache and so does the constipation caused by opiate usage.

    swim has just googled and found this although it is for injectable morphine sulphate:

    [h2]ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS?[/h2]
    Like many medicines Morphine Sulphate Injection BP may cause side-effects in some patients, particularly when it is first given. The most serious problem is with breathing which may become shallower. The most common side-effects that some other patients have had with Morphine Sulphate Injection BP include feeling sick, being sick, constipation, drowsiness and dizziness.
    Other side-effects include itching, wheals or skin rashes, difficulty in passing water, passing less water than usual, stomach pains, dry mouth, sweating, flushing of the face, giddiness, slow or rapid pulse, palpitations, low blood pressure (you may feel faint, especially on standing), mental clouding or confusion, headache, mood swings, imagining things (hallucinations), small pupils (in the eye), blurred vision, double vision or other changes in vision.
    Long term use may lead to reduced sexual drive or impotence.


    maybe you are sensitive to it?

    Yea, morphine is known to cause problems with constipation, so that may have well been the problem.

    Last night SWIM crushed a 1/4 of a 15mg pill and put that up his nose and licked up another 1/4 of a pill and felt great. No stomach pains this morning or last night :)

    Thanks for the response.

    Was SWIY taking opiates prior to the 15mg of morph? SWIM doubts that dosage would cause that much constipation, especially if there had been no opiate use for a few days before this.
    Maybe SWIM's wrong, he guesses everyone's bodies are different.

    No, SWIM had not done opiates in quite a while. He tried eating a whole pill yesterday, and it turned out fine, but he's that snorting it provides a nicer sensation :D
