  1. My son was first diagnosed with pneumonia and shingles; he was put on hydrocodone, and it
    made him nauseous and he was vomiting- (couldn’t eat or drink ) he became constipated, and that is a bad sign, as he was later found to have lung cancer, so in addition to all the drugs he was on to treat the pneumonia and shingles, he was given a high dose of morphine sulphate ( orally ) and he passed away within a day after receiving the 100-mg. dose of morphine.
