Hi & Welcome,

Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone who has quit Morphine per say, but it is an opiate and most all of the members here are opiate addicts in various stages of addiction and recovery.

Why exactly does you doctor want you to stop so abruptly?

I have quit morphine at home on my own. I'm day 11 clean today. How much morphine are you taking a day?

I would seek another Dr. that is absurd that your Dr wants you to quit a highly addictive substance, but is not offering you any options such as a taper plan or alternative treatment. Believe me, these Dr's KNOW how addicting these pain meds are so for him to even suggest you just stop like that is ridiculous. In fact I am on a taper plan to get off Hydrocodone through a Pain Managment Dr and it even says in my contract the warnings of trying to just stop pain meds cold turkey (withdrawls) and suggests if you want off them to seek guidance from the Dr. Try talking to him about it and if he still won't help you ditch him and get another Dr ASAP!
