Morphine Overview

Morphine (INN) (/mrfin/) (sold under nearly a hundred trade names) is an opioid analgesic drug, and the main psychoactive chemical in opium. In clinical medicine, morphine is regarded as the gold standard of analgesics used to relieve intense pain. Like other opioids, such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, and diacetylmorphine (heroin), morphine acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain. Morphine has a high potential for addiction; tolerance and psychological dependence dev...

I had a total knee replacement in 2005 and 11 total surgeries to my lower left leg. I have been to Ohio, Michigan, New York and Texas! My doctor gave me morphine 6-8 tablets per day for 3 or 4 years and it worked. He is retired now. Several of your readers are correct! If you look around for another doctor or ask for a specific drug you are a junkie, drug addicted doctor shopper. That sucks! Why is that? Where can I go in Northern Kentucky? I am not a junkie and I am not "doctor shopping" I just want pain relief! That's all! Why is that so tuff? I am 56 years old and a hard working person, not a freak!! ## Hello, Baron! How are you? I am so sorry that you're in pain. Your best bet would be to actually see a pain management specialist. They are more likely to be understan...

how much morphine to tablets 100mg overdose

How many 100mg pills on a 43 yr.male 170 lb. Will it take to XOXOXO ~~~~~~ ## @chris, According to Walgreens' website, Morphine comes in dosages of up to 200mgs in extended release form. So I suppose it's not uncommon to receive 100mg tabs in certain situations. However, in my opinion anything above what your doctor recommends for you should be considered an overdose (i.e. simply taking more than prescribed). Hopefully you're not in it to "quit it" if you know what I mean. There's a reason we all exist here on this planet at this exact moment, and while I don't know your situation I can only imagine how you might be feeling on such a high dosage of pain medication. If you need someone to reach out to, please know that there are people here who care.

round blue ## My Dr. gave me morphine cr for Fibromyalgia. What will it feel like? I'm nervous about taking it. ## If you have taken other narcotics, then you will feel the same effects, though Morphine is very strong.

15 mg morphine

My Doc prescribed me 15 mg of Morphine. Ive been on vicodin 7.5 mg for three years. How much of a difference is morphine? I took half of the blue pill just now. ## The Morphine is stronger than the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin, it is also a straight narcotic, without the Acetaminophen that is in the Vicodin. It sounds like your doctor is trying to help you get better control of your pain. The main issue here is, what type of Morphine pills are they? If they are the time released version, generics for MS Contin, then cutting the pill in half could be very dangerous and should not be done. It can cause you to have too much of the medication released at once. The side effects are similar and may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

morphine and lorazepam drug interaction

Can morphine and Scopolamine Lorazepam be mixed for a 70 year old man with terminal cancer? ## I looked up these medications myself and could not find any indications for why they could not be used together! From what I have read, the one medication of course is for pain and the other is a patch that is worn behind the ear which is given to help alleviate nausea ..... however I am not in the health care field whatsoever and you really should be calling the doctor if these medications were not proscribed to him by the doctor that is treating him! I would not have answered at all except that I felt the need to say something under the circumstances! Know that there are many of us that care dearly for one another and I am praying for you all!
