Medicine Question

Postby littlegreen1 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 5:56 am

Hi,

I have been diagnosed with cancer and the doctor is willing to prescribe an Opiate but I read online of people having tolerance to Opiates.

So I ask you if you are on Opiate medicine, do you notice any tolerance to it?. Does it still work?. And where you taking it every day.

Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Could you provide a bit more detail? What kind of cancer? Is the medication for surgery pain? Or pain from the tumor(s)?
