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...

My PM Doctor Suggested I Find A New PM Doctor
44 Replies RSS
Hello everybody, my name is Lisa. I have been seeing my pain management doctor for nine years. In the beginning he started me off at regular doses of Morphine Sulfate ER, Roxicodone, Diclofenac, Valium (for my horrific spasms) and Duloxetine. I have had 3 surgeries on my back, two laminectomies and the last one was a complete spinal fusion at L4-5 and S1 wherein they went in and took out a piece of my hip bone and fused it to my lower back along with plates and screws. They went in through my stomach and my back. I was opened in 3 places and the fusion took 17 hours as it was much worse than originally anticipated and my Dr. found another new herniation at L3. None of my three surgeries worked and this is due to an accident when I was 17 years old. I am now 47. I have done everything kn...

Ranbaxy Morphine ER bad one?
1 Reply RSS
I'm barely able to write this. Pain meds not working last couple of days. One change is I want to use up some old pills made by Ranbaxy. Might be this be my problem? I googled around but am not finding anything on best generic Morphine Er. TIA! ## Sorry to hear about your pain. This will probably sound like a silly question, but can you confirm that the old Ranbaxy pills were not expired? If they had worked well for you in the past but are not helping now, that would be my first guess. Also, may I ask what mg dose your tablets are, and what is the previous brand that gave you good results? There are probably at least half a dozen manufactures for the extended release morphine generics. I expect most to be comparable to one another, but there are anecdotal stories of certain variance...

different strengths of morphine
23 Replies RSS
different strengths of morphine ## Morphine is a narcotic analgesic. The strength varies, depending on what formulation you are asking about. For instance the extended release tablets are available in strengths of 15mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg. The regular release tablets come in 10mg, 15mg and 30mg. What specific type are you asking about? ## I am currently taking 360 mg. of morphine sulfate CR per day, (2-60 mg. tablets, 3x a day) and 45 mg. of Oxycodone IMM for breakthrough pain (1-15.mg tablet, 3x a day) My new Pain doctor switched me to 1-60 mg. tablet of Kadian CR and up to 90 mg. of oxycodone IMM (1-2 tablets of oxycodone IMM 15 mg. 3 x a day) for breathrough pain.Isn't Kadian CR the same as morphine sulfate CR? I'm afraid I'll go into withdrawl if I begin taking ...

morphine to suboxone transition
4 Replies RSS
I've been taking 40gs of long acting and 240 of short acting daily for several years. The last month before converting to suboxone I tapered down. 12 hours after my last dose of long acting morphine it took 8mg of suboxone and started a3x a day 8ng of suboxone. I feel great. No side effects except 1st day had a bad headache. ## Wow! Those were very high dosages, so I'm glad that the transition went so smoothly for you. Some people have problems getting the dosage of the Suboxone just right. The FDA lists these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any comments or questions? ## There's a company called point of return that...

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
12 Replies RSS
My question concerns drug conversion. The Fentanyl works well, most of time, for my chronic pain, but my insurance now says I can only get it again in March of 2015. This is still Oct., 2014, so I will be out of patches at end of October. I don't understand this, because just stopping the patches would/will cause terrible withdrawal, because if you are only couple days late, withdrawal starts. This happened also recently as my dr. changed (at my request to try something else)100 mcg. patch to only 15 mg. of morphine ER every 12 hours, because of patches costing almost $400 for one month, which I cannot afford, due to "doughnut hole". The change made be very sick within two days, so I had to go back to patches. I didn't think the 15 mg. extended release morphine was enoug...

morphine extended release

I take morphine 15mg extended release tabs right now and I normally take 1 Hydrocodone 10-550's but Im out of those right now..Im wondering if taking another morphine would be ok? I took the first one at 8:00am this morning and its now 7 hours later..Im in pain! ## While they do make 30mg Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets, I know that everyone reacts differently to different doses, based on tolerance - So I can't necessarily imply that a higher dose will still benefit you, in contrast to any possible side effects that come along with it. For that reason alone, it would probably be wise to discuss this approach with the doctor who prescribed you both medications, just to be on the safe side. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Morphine Details How long have...

morphine extended release 30mg

Hello, I was taking 15mg er morphine 2x a day, was suppose to b 3x, but when I tried going to sleep my breathing wasn't the same, so I dropped the night dose, my question is the dr now put me on 30mg 2x a day, ima lil nervous, I'm heavy set, so u know my size, how will the 30mg make me feel??? I've got bad anxiety, thanks for ur help!!! ## Hello, Shy! How are you? Why did your doctor change your dosage? That is twice the amount you were taking, so it is more potent and may cause more drowsiness, dizziness and sedation. I can't really say for sure how it will make you feel, the only thing you can do is try it and see, but watch for any danger signs, such as severe dizziness, severe sedation and shallow breathing. This medication also carries the risk of being habit formin...

morphine 60mg extended release
6 Replies RSS
How long does ER 60 mg morphine give pain relief per dose? ## Hi, Jane! How are you? These are designed to slowly release the medication over a period of 12 hours, so they are normally prescribed to be taken twice daily. However, some people do find that they don't get as much pain relief after about 10 hours, or so. Learn more MS Contin details here. This is 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. ## how often should you take 60mg morphine tablets? Its been at least eleven hours so is it OK to take another one? ## I take 1 60mg @ 5am and again at 4-5pm of Morphine Sulfate ER. They don't last 12 hrs for me and I also take Norco. 10/325 1-2 every 7hrs. Those ar...
