Question: morphine for a MIGRAINE???

 71superbee - Thu Dec 08, 2005 8:07 pm

Should a 20 female with spinabifida that is confined to a wheelchair... Should anyone for that matter be given morphine or any derivative of morphine to relieve the pain caused by a migraine? A good friend of mine has been having severe migraine headaches and has gone to many doctors, specialists, and hospitals all of which have said that there is nothing they can do but give her morphine, demerol, or methadone to relieve her symptoms. What should she do? I'm very concerned for her well being and I'm almost positive that anything related to heroin cannot be good for ones well being!

Morphine is very safe drug when used as prescribed.
