I was taking Morphine for 24 years-started when I had cancer in 1990, ended up at 600 mgm a day- took myself off down to 15 mgm a day, when I try to go completely off, I get leg and arm spasms both day and night- the only thing that seems to stop it is to take a morphine, which infuriates me immensely because I really want to get off this stuff- any suggestions or how long is this going to last if I try to stick it out- is there something the Doc can give me to help me so I can get sleep once in awhile while this is happening, or am I going to be stuck on this for the rest of my life? Thanks
Terry
