Morphine Overview

Morphine (INN) (/mrfin/) (sold under nearly a hundred trade names) is an opioid analgesic drug, a recreational drug, and the main psychoactive chemical in opium. In clinical medicine, morphine is regarded as the gold standard, or benchmark, of analgesics used to relieve intense pain and suffering.[2] 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 ...

morphine patches can medicine be transferred if you touch sticky side for short time
I am caregiver for my sister with terminal cancer and noticed something sticky on the bottom of my foot. It appeared to be the old patch I had removed after placing a new patch on her. I see my doctor for a permanent disorder and worry that something like that could show in me!! Don't mean to sound silly, but would like to know. I never noticed any kind of strange or 'high' feeling so am assuming it was already pretty drained, but I handle them all the time and now worry about the medicine transferring to my skin. I quit using gloves because the patches kept getting stuck on them, Thank you for your reply ## Hi Sammy! No, the medication cannot be transferred to you through your shoe. It has to be in contact through the skin. ## Hi Sammy! If you meant the patch stuck to your ...

Morphine Sulfate 30 Mg unable to find pharmacy to fill Rx
Have had an Rx from my Doc in Orlando since moving to Sarasota/ Lakewood Ranch area Jan 30. NO CVS,NO Walmart has had this med. All say it is out of stock or haven't carried it for a long time. The Rx expires after6 months. Please can you help give info to explain why pharmacies here don't have a medicine for my chronic condition? Orlando is 2.5+ hours away...too far for my spouse to go for an Rx.. Thank you. We are confused. ## It is most likely due to the fact that the prescribing doctor is in Orlando and you're trying to get it filled in a different area. Learn more Morphine details here. There have been a lot of problems on the east coast, due to improper filling, improper or over prescribing, pharmacies stocking and filling more than they are allowed to each month and e...

Which Is Stronger 30 Mg Of Morphine Sulphate Er Or 10 Methadone
I am in a confusing debate with ex husband which is stronger 30 mg of morphine sulfate E.R or 10 mg of methadone? ## Methadone is stronger than Morphine, just as an example, if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine, the equivalent dosage of Methadone would only be 3mgs, so it's a roughly 1mg to 10mg ratio. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on Methadone tablets for 13 years with a NY pain mgmt doctor who worked alongside an Orthopedic surgeon who originally diagnosed my lumbar-sacral pain from DDD (L5/S1) and nerve damage in my legs, plus osteoarthritis in hips and spine. My Methadone dose began at 30mg/day, and at it's highest 10 yrs later, was on 150mg/day. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009, and lost 130 lbs by 2010. My Methadone dosage was able to be brought ...

how much morphine to overdose
I took 3 . 35 mgs morphine pills , i got a severe head ache and felt like if I was going to burn up inside. Did I took too much ? ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Did you suffer any adverse effects? Why did you take so many? And what dosage was it, there is no 35 or .35mg Morphine tablets. But if you aren't tolerant to it, taking multiple pills could definitely risk an overdose, the signs for that would be extreme sedation, dizziness, extreme drowsiness and shallow breathing.

morphine sulfate 60mg vs methadone 10mg
My morphine sulfate 60mg were stolen, and I hve some methadone 10mg. I was supposed to take the Morphine sulfate 60mg X3 a day. How should I take these methadone 10mg to help me get through until I see My Dr. next week? ## I'd suggest actually calling your doctor to see what you should do. If you're under a treatment contract, taking something else, regardless of the circumstances, without doctor's permission could violate it and result in your getting dismissed as a patient. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

No One Will Tell Me If The Doctor Has Ordered To Take Much Pain Meds 2 Tabs Morphine 15mg And 5 Hydrocodone 10 325mg Aday Gabapentin 800mg 3 Times Car
will someone anwer this question for me doctor will not lower meds and i am not awake enought to take them as ordered. doctor will drop me if is order our not followed ## If you are sleeping that much, then yes, there is a possibility that you are taking too many medications, but only you can really decide that. What type of doctor are you seeing? It really makes no sense for him to refuse to lower medications, if necessary. What is his reasoning for it? Most doctors are far too conservative the other way and are afraid of prescribing too much. ## For anyone else in this boat, the doctor is referring to the fact that when he gives you a u.a., you had better have the opiates he prescribed in your system or else he will think you are diverting your medications. Also this post sounded trol...

morphine 100mg er vs Lower Cost Alternative
I am a cronic pain patient. I have been taking Morphine ER 100mg for about 2 years. The price on my pills just doubles at my local pharmacy, My Dr is very open to recommendations, Can anyone recommend an alternative drug with the same pain killing potency with a lower cost. He had prescribed my Oxycontin, but the price at the pharmave was going to be about $700 per month out of pocket for me. The Morphine ER 100MG (qty 90, 3 per day) had been costing me $97 with my drug discount card, today when my wife refilled, they charged $190. When I called about it they said that the retail price of the pills had gone up. ## I have run into the same problem this month. My insurance will only pay for Morphine immediate release, and nothing else. If you find anything that might help both of us, I wo...
