I suffer from spastic diplegia am prescribed intrathecal Baclofen for a number of years now which I take daily in doses of 50ug every 6 hours for a total of 200ug per day. Lately I have been suffering from lower back pain due to an injury I suffered. Weaker pain killers such as codeine and dihydrocodeine provide a little relief but have proven to be not particularly efficient in managing the pain. I have a bottle of morphine which I would like to use but am worried about CNS depression as both of these drugs are CNS depressants. If anyone could tell me how much oral morphine I could take safely without endangering my life then this would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure I wouldn't be the first person to have used this combination but I could do with some advise. Thank you!
