    Hi All, I’ve researched and read around the forums looking for threads about kicking morphine. Taper plans, what to expect – is it even that big a deal? I’m surprised there are no easily accessible threads (that I could find at least) regarding this. Can someone point me to a thread that covers some of this info – or should I have just begun a new one (like I just did;)? My wife and I are prepared to quit – and are going to start tapering later this evening. We have been taking anywhere from 5-10 tabs a day for probably 2 years now (mostly at night/after work and throughout the day). Any info/help would be greatly appreciated… Thanks!

    I agree 100% that I created those accts but never tried to encourage to buy from raphael or post his list here. regarding my morphine consumption I am writing down details month by month I think that I should also mention that we all take Kratom daily (which we used to effectively kick opiates years ago). We are down on our Kratom intake to about 30% twice daily – but it’s an everyday struggle… We also take benzo’s and other pain meds, – but we do have plenty of them available. I just didn’t think creating 4-5accts was that big of a deal but I do realize that my actions were wrong.

    I’m interested with this topic too. I heard that morphine dependence could have significant impact on the patient’s mental condition while withdrawal could lead to severe muscle or bone pains.

    If I were you, I would look towards discontinuing one drug at a time, and use just 1 or 2 drugs at proper doses. There are too many factors when certain drugs are involved, It could even be the Kratom that sets off the other drugs. Kratom is an unknown percentage. That is what i’d personally be looking to get off first. You don’t know the power, the dose to take, the exact alkaloids in your product, or whether it’s cut with something or not. Once you’re done with Kratom, perhaps ms contin should be alright then. I don’t see any rush, but it would be better if benzodiazepines involved on a frequent, low-dose basis. Once Once kratom are gone, you can use benzos and pain medications as needed as before. Stay safe.

    Well – I’d agree to most of those statements, except for I have been on Kratom for about 5+ years (or so) and been on morphine for 1.5-2 years. From what I understand, Kratom is mainly a long-acting opiate agonist. So time-wise, we’ve been roughly twice as long on the Kratom as the morphine (maybe more). We had never had a single problem with Kratom. The problems all began when we started taking the morphine (like the same day – maybe a week). Besides, I just feel (in my gut), that all (or most) of the problems are from the morphine. I do definitely agree with the one drug at a time philosophy and the polymorphic variables. I just really think it should be the morphine first, in this case. Can you see where I’m coming from on this – or does this make any more sense to you? Do you think I’m totally off-base? Thanks for humoring me on what has turned into a rather interesting thread. Thanks – and Good Luck!

    I can definitely see where you’re coming from, and if you’re determined, go for something like oxycodone to supplement the kratom first. All you need to try to do is keep the Kratom exactly the same, in the batch you’re using, its quality, amount, alkaloid ratio and whatever else. Also keep the benzo use out of the picture; you shouldn’t need it now. You could well be correct about the problems emanating from the morphine. 2 years versus 4 years isn’t really the issue, but getting off the M can certainly be the priority. If you take them all at night, it may be worth spreading them out through the day as well (driving permitting) so that your levels aren’t jumping up and down. This should make benzo use unnecessary, as the metabolites will have an anxiolytic effect. the number of people on M is huge considering that morphine is the standard part of Europe, standard in terms of use for back pain, fibromyalgia, and a variety of other conditions in the USA. Best of luck, and please do keep us informed of how it goes. You could change many lives in the process,

    thanks for the info guys, and don’t worry about the morphine side effects just keep the doses low (max 150mg/day). I’ve got enough of that stuff laying around to kill an entire farm;) Will power/mind over matter! I’m choosing to take it – it’s not holding me, hostage – so far at least;)
