    long term use

    Is there any negative effects of using long acting (12 hour) morphine pills with 50 mg fentanyl patch for 7 years or longer for neuropathic pain?

    Opoids can affect the endocrine system. Depending on the person, and the levels, males might need testosterone replacement. There may be some possible effects on adrenal function as well, I'm not sure about that one.

    The doctor who is prescribing this should be able to answer that question also.

    If I come across some more research on the subject, I will post it.
