Paradoxial Reaction to Morphine
by joan f
I was in the hospital with severe sepsis of the blood stream and ended up with pneumonia and they gave me morphine for pain (against my wishes) The pain stopped with in a half hour....then I got totally anxious, heart felt like it was beating out of my chest) nurses checked and it was normal.
I couldn't sit still, I was hooked to IV I wasn't going far. I paced and paced....felt like I should be out doing something not sitting in a hospital. My mind, I couldn't concentrate on TV books or puzzles. It was awful. And 10 days later, I still cant sleep for any more than 4 hours at a time. They gave me a sleeping pill. Guess what....same reaction as if I took morphine again.
