If a female in her terminal stages of ovarian cancer on Morphine requests you to increase the dosage as the pain is unbearable..what do you do? her RR is 9/min

a) Increase the dose
b)Decrease the dose

d)Stop the drug


increase dose bcoz for terminal patient to be pain free is most important even if it increases mortality
