Tummy upset from Morphine....


Recommended Posts


I'm here again with my stomach problems, but does anyone else have awful stomach pains which I'm 100% certain is because of the Morphine?

I never take anything on an empty stomach, I always have at least a biscuit before hand, but the old tummy isn't liking the Morphine one bit. I take 20mg in the morning and 20mg before bed, then will sometimes need a Co-Codamol 30mg/500mg during the night.

My tummy of late just feels upset all the time. Does anyone have a tried and tested solution on how to alleviate the tummy upset, something I can take.

I have been taking one Lansoprazole 15mg a day, but that isn't helping, but having said that it's just tummy ache, not indigestion.

I would be so grateful for some help.

Thanks again

Sorry Linda I wasn't on morphin for very long and didn't experience the side effects you seem to be getting. Have you tried having a chat with the support team, I'm sure they would be able to advise.
