Started the statex. He prescribed 10 mg, saying I can take up to 30 mg. every 6 hours. Was completely zonked by it. Morphia had been fine after my broken ankle as it was very pleasant being in a drunken haze through the pain, but it is not OK if I want to to be compos mentis.

Halved the statex tablet. Still zonked. Could be partly that I am on Benadryl at night as have gone completely deaf in my right ear following a cold. My GP said Benadryl should clear the fluid in the ear. I did separate the statex and Benadryl by several hours.
Pharmacist suggested I asked for morphine syrup instead so I can calibrate the dose.
