Wow, thanks so much. Why do you suppose my Dr. is being an a**hole, when I told him that the morphine sulfate caused severe projectile vomiting. He makes me feel like I'm bad for telling him I had such a bad reaction, like I am not thankful, for all he HAS done for me. As I read through the list, I have many more side effects. I haven't slept in 2 nights. Last night I had a severe case of restless legs. Sweating, blurred vision, severe swelling in my legs and ankles, double vision, chills. And serious agitation. Everyone is pissing me off.

Thats what I take after 2 years of daily opiate use and it doesn't do much to me anymore. I still get constipated is about all. So I take a 1/2 cap of generic Miralax every day or so and I'm good. If your not used to opiates they definitely can make you feel sick. That should pass though, why your Dr. would act like that idk My present Dr is also a jerk if that makes you feel better. If it's really bad you can cut your pills in half and just take the one a day I know they say not too but I haven't seen that it matters. I doubt I'd mention it to your Dr though.

I was on Kadin for years which are 24 hour release, then they changed it to Morphine Sulfate Tablets. They say it's the same as the other which where capsule? But it seems to work different? and I didn't know if it was safe to break in half or not? Or if it was 24 hour relieve too?Doe's anyone know these question answers?

I took morphine 60mg twice daily for 8 months. It made me throw up, and I felt nauseous most of the time. If you are sick, it doesn't get better. And it hardly gives much pain relief. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
