As reported in an article in the the June 2011 Pain Monitor "Researchers from departments of pediatrics at five U.S. medical centers collaborated on a study of 21 SCD patients to determine the impact of the disease on the rate at which morphine begins to effect relief and the duration of relief."
As we already know these researchers found, "Results showed that the half-life of morphine in the SCD patients was 3 to 10-fold shorter compared to morphine clearance in non-SCD patients."
In english....FOR SCD SUFFERERS PAIN RELIEF DOESEN'T LAST AS LONG!!!!
