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 in management of severe 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 develop rapidly, ...

can you half a 30 mg morphine er without problems
Post a Reply
I'm taking norco 10 mg 3 x day. I was taking 5 mg oxycodone along with the Norco at different times. I was starting to get no pain relief. My doctor recently changed me to 15 mg ir morphine tabs and now because it was not relieving the pain increased it to 30 mg er morphine taking it every 12 hrs. It's making me sick and not relieving the pain. Can I cut the er morphine pills in half safely. I'm still taking the Norco as needed. I've been taking pain Meds for 7 yrs for chronic pain and I can't go on like this.

morphine 15mg and oxycodone 10 325
1 Reply RSS
what is the difference beween morphine 15mg and oxycodone 10-325mg ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? For pain relieving efficacy, these doses are roughly equivalent. However, Morphine and Oxycodone are two different narcotics. While both have been proven effective, one sometimes works better for some people than another. Being coupled with the Acetaminophen can also make the Oxycodone work better for some people, so they can take a lower dose of it and still achieve adequate pain relief. The FDA classifies both of these medication as being narcotic analgesics. So they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

I just receive a prescription for Morphine Sulfate Imm Rel 15mg, on the tab there are some numbers, 54 733 they are also round and white, can u explain it to me please, this is my first time using this pain pills. ## Hello, Babykay!

There is no immediate release formulation available.

long term morphine effects
1 Reply RSS
My husband is 71 years old, and has suffered from chronic pain for 11 years. What are the long term effects of taking morphine? ## Hello, Charlie! How are you and your husband? Morphine is a narcotic opiate, so long-term use can lead to physical dependence and if he suddenly stopped it he may experience withdrawal symptoms, which according to the FDA may include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting and cold flashes. Is she showing any unusual side effects?

celluitis in mams legs
Post a Reply
My mother suffers from osteoporosis, arthritis and fluid in the legs. She is now housebound but her legs have been red and sore for about two years. We have just been told she has celluitis and she is on all kinds of drugs for her other conditions including morphine. They have recently gave her antibiotics but she's had reactions with them. However, every time doctors have been out to see her and the acute care team, they have always commented on her legs. But they haven't done anything about it. Now I have read this can be fatal if left untreated. She has just been admitted into hospital because of how she was feeling. What can I do about this when one doctor is saying she can't get infection in her legs and the other one is saying different

how is morphine ER 30 mg tablet released when taken
1 Reply RSS
How many milligrams are released per hour in a 30mg morphine ER pill? ## Hi Nickie, I don't know if this will suffice as an exact answer to your question, but one manufacturer of Morphine ER (Endo Pharma) has an article stating that after 1.5 hours following administration of Morphine ER, 50% of it is absorbed. Based on this info alone, I would anticipate 10mgs out of 30mgs being released/absorbed within an hour's time. After that point however, I'm not sure what its release rate would look like over a period of 12 hours. Ref: NOTE - Just in case I misinterpreted any specific details, the information I found pertaining to this is on page 2 in the link above. I hope this helps!

difference between morphine pills

is there a difference between abg 15 and ms 15 morphine tablets? ## Hello, Erika! How are you? No, they have just been manufactured by different companies. This is very common with generics, it creates market competition to help keep prices lower. The one with the ABG marking is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and the one with the MS M 15 on it is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, but both contain 15mgs of Morphine in an extended release formulation. The FDA classifies this as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
