I'm reading a lot about neurotoxicity seizures and hyperalgesia occurring due to morphine being administered around the clock even after a patients kidneys have stopped putting out urine and pt has been npo. So I've been telling PTs caregivers to lessen frequency (q 4 instead of 2) and watch for any signs of pain when pt gets to that point. If that occurred I'd imediaty say raise the frequency back and watch for myoclonus and if that occurs I'd call doc to switch to oxycodone, etc. however my administrator says to push morphine and don't even think about lowering it. If pt has any symptoms do Ativan and even more morphine. All the textbooks say this is exactly what not to do.. I'm new to hospice and just want to make sure I'm doing right by my patients. Has anyone seen morphine seizures? I saw myoclonus in a pt but it went away w Ativan and he passed shortly after.
