Morphine Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate type which is found naturally in a number of plants and animals.[5][7] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain. It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain. Morphine is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labour. It can be given by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by injecting under the skin, intravenously, into the space around the spinal cord, or rectally.[5] Maximu...

Post a Reply
I need to find out if I can cut my pills in half or in 1/4's and still have the medication be extended release and still help with my pain? I have never done it before and I do not like taking the pill all at once.

peach colored tablet abg 60 imprinted on side
1 Reply RSS
Please identify a small (1/4" circumference) colored tablet with ABG imprint one side & 60 on other side. The pharmacy bottle says it's Morphine Sulfate ER 60 MG by Actavis Pharm generic for Avinza. However, this tablet looks nothing like the small green capsule in last month's bottle with the exact same details on that bottle. ## This tablet is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they do list it as containing 60mgs of Morphine in a time released formulation. So, your pharmacy just provide you with a generic that has been manufactured by a different company. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Morphine usage concerns
1 Reply RSS
My mom has been taking extended-release morphine 30mg for about 6 years for chronic back pain from botched back surgery. The doctor recently added 15 mg immediate release. She has to take both of these 4 times a day. Is this too much morphine? Should we be concerned about overdose? ## Hello, Marilynn! How is your mom doing? It is off that the extended release would be prescribed to be taken 4 times a day, it usually only taken twice a day. As to whether or not its too much, that really depends on her and her opiate tolerance. The FDA warns that Morphine carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is she seeing a pain management specialist or just her PCP?

New pain medication laws dictating to doctors that they cannot prescribe anything equivalent 120 mg of morphine or higher a day per patient
606 Replies RSS
I was told Friday by my Pain Management Doctor at my monthly appointment that the DEA was implementing a new law dictating to doctors on how much pain medication they could prescribe per patient per day. It could be equal to no more than 120 mg of Morphine per day per patient and they had to comply within 3 months for all of their patients. I am trying to find out as much information on this as possible. I don't know if my Pain Management Doctor is stating fact or if he is just running scared and if he is stating fact, I don't know if this is federal or state (Alabama) mandated. I spoke directly with the Southeastern division of the DEA in Atlanta this morning and they are not aware of any law of this nature coming into effect and I also contacted another pain clinic locally tha...

I Am Taking Morphine Sulfate Er 30 Mg Twice A Day And Also Imm Rel 15mg
24 Replies RSS
I am taking morphine sulfate er 30mg tablets twice a day and also taking morphine sulfate imm rel 15mg once, sometimes twice a day. Finances won't allow me to get the morphine er at this time. Question: what is dosage of morphine imm per day without morphine er for 5 or 6 day until I can get the morphine er? ## They are both Morphine, so the dosage would be the same, however, the problem you are going to run into is that it is not going to last as long and since it is being released into your body much faster, this will potentiate the side effects, such as the nausea, dizziness and constipation that it can cause. Have you consulted with your doctor? You should really do so, before you try anything of this nature. It would probably work better for managing your pain to take a lower d...

Detox off of Morphine
10 Replies RSS
I am on 15 mg morphine extended release tablets. Taken whole 1 every day. I want off off them. Desperate. Will not go on Suboxone. Will take Methadone am very serious and want off of these opiates. Tired of going into withdrawals. Been taking them every day for 5 months. Please help, advise where I can get help. ## Hi this is Tina. I forgot to add I am in Tampa, Florida. If anyone knows where i can get help without taking suboxone please write back to me. Thank you. ## Tina, I should caution you that with a minimal opiate intake like 1 15 mg tablet a day for only 5 months should cause very little if any discomfort. Methadone is designed for users with years and decades of very high opiate or opioid addiction. I'm not discounting your usage but I doubt any real methadone clinics will...

I have chronic back pain and nerve damage to my right side due to a car accident, The neuroligist said the damage is equal to being dropped 7 stories on my left side. Now he is prescribing Morphine Sulfate 15mg and I am worried about the addiction versuses pain relief ## I have been on Morphind sulfate for approx. 3 months now twice daily for back, hip and hand pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. It has helped my back and hip pain but not the hand. My biggest problem is that this drug is like swallowing cement, it is terribly constipating. I stopped it for several days just to see if I was, indeed, becoming addicted and the awnser is no. My physical therapist and other nurses have told me not to worry as long as I was in pain I would not become addicted. But of course we are all different...

## would like to know what it looks like ## the 30 mg comes in a blue greenish caqpsule and the 10 comes in a capsule also just a little smaller ## are their morphine in red & white capsules? ## While I can see that Nora tried to provide some information, but that is not entirely correct, while Morphine is available in caspule form, it is also available in tablets. So, as to being able to say what it looks like, that is almost impossible. Once a med is available to be made and sold as a generic, when the proprietary name brand patent has run out, there are hundreds of pharmaceutical companies that can pick up the manufacture of it. There are also no guidelines in the pharmaceutical industry that says all pills or capsules with the same active ingredient must be the same size, shape,...
