30 Mg 3x Daily Morphine Sulfate Converts To How Much Percoset 7.5/325Updated
Just got out of 15 day stay in hospital for Sepsis,Cellulitis. I am 64 and a disabled Veteran.
Dr gave me Percoset 5/325(2 tabs 4x/daily) on discharge. My V A Dr went ballistic! Way to much Acetaminophen. She has prescribed Percoset in the past, but no more 1 tab 3x daily. She was OK with the amount of Pain Med, but not with that much Acetaminophen. She gave me 30 Mg 3x Daily Morphine Sulfate instead. I HATE MORPHINE! Wake up disoriented and confused every morning, nauseous all day long, and dizziness is so bad I have to use a walker to go from the bedroom to the bathroom. I am going to ask my Doctor to change to Percoset 7.5/325 or 10/325. Can someone please help me in converting 30 Mg 3x Daily Morphine Sulfate to the equivalent Percoset dosage?
I'm so sorry to hear about your situation,
in my opinion, I would just go ahead and ask your doctor to switch from the morphine to Percocet. The Percocet and Morphine are still two different drugs no matter the dosage taken for either one. If you know Morphine doesn't work for you, the dose taken most likely won't change that.
Also, I'm not sure if you've ever tried using essential oils for your pain, but they can be very effective. There are study's stating that oregano oil can actually be as strong as morphine and can provide the same relief plus other benefits, if used correctly.
Here's a link to a page that offers information about different essential oils that can be used for pain of all types: experience-essential-oils.com/essential-oils-for-pain.html
I hope this helps!
