I had mine for 4 years and exhausted the highest dose of morphine which was combined with other medication. I couldn't have afforded it if my wonderful

doctor hadn't waived the co-pay. When the medication(s) worked, I felt like

my old self but I did get drowsy. There is a medication that can be given for drowsiness but the side affects can be serious.

I hope you will get relief from pain and you'll find the pump the answer for

you. Good luck.
