Like any drug/treatment, chemotherapy can have a negative impact on a cancer patient. Chemotherapy tends to have a psychological effect on patients, commonly known as “chemo brain” (Chemo Brain, 2012). Chemo brain is a mental disability that is caused by the effect of chemotherapy that may impair a cancer patient’s everyday life (Chemo Brain, 2012). Examples of Chemo brain may include: becoming forgetful, not being able to concentrate, trouble remembering any details, no longer being able to multi-task, having a difficult time finishing a task and having trouble remembering sentence structure (Chemo Brain, 2012). Even though chemo brain is the common term, doctors and researchers refer to chemo brain as “mild cognitive impairment” (Chemo Brain, 2012).
Naloxone is given to patients in order to aid in reversing these negative effects of morphine. With large doses of morphine, nausea and vomiting are potential side effects and may be treated with a phenothiazine. For theses reasons, morphine continues to be researched for the treatment of pulmonary edema (Cotter, et al., 2001).
