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...

morphine sulphate er and ir vrs hydrocodone with fentanyl patch
for 3 years my dr. was prescribing me three 60mg morphine sulphate er and four 30mg ms ir daily. when it became impossible to get MS in Florida, he switched me to Fentanyl patch 12MCG/HR every 3 days and 7.5mg-200 hydrocordone , 1 every 8 hours. the pain was unbearable and I felt terrible. cold sweats, shakes, could'nt think straight. when I asked him to increase dosage, he increased the patch to 25 MCG, but said there was more MS in the 7.5-200 hydrocodone than the 30mg tabs of ms. do you agree? Also, how does the patch equate to the Three 60MG MS er I was taking daily? Prior to this Dr.,after I moved 200 miles away,, my orthopedic surgeon was prescribing me Oxycontin, or oxycodone. When I called him 3 years ago and told him The new pain management Dr. switched to MS, he said its l...

morphine tablets slow release
I am disabled veteran with chronic pain, and after reading some of these, and knowing how terrible life was before I was prescribed both types, I just cannot believe, or understand "why" it is not treated with respect, and the beneficial results, it produces. I have been taking the same dosage except for a increase in the # of SR tablets per day, and some days, I still have pain, but not to the extent, I experienced for over 20 years trying to work and be a productive citizen. People, take as prescribed, or you do not need it. My life, is not pain free, but I am not in agony, anymore. I, have a profound respect for the medication, that changed my life. ## Hi PainMan, I think that these types of pain meds tend to carry a tarnished reputation simply because of the high amount of a...

New pain medication laws dictating to doctors that they cannot prescribe anything equivalent 120 mg of morphine or higher a day per patient
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...

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...

Suddenly Unable To Find Pharmacy Fill Morphine Mscontin
I live n north Atlanta, ga. And suddenly no pharmacy (been to 6 so far) will fill my scripts. And each has a different reason than the next, yet none accusing me of any wrong doing. Been on severe pain control since .2005. No new meds at all... Why? ## What reasons have you been given? There have been a lot of problems on the east coast recently. A lot of issues are due to the fact that the limits on how much of these medications any pharmacy can order in each month are now being strictly enforced. This is causing many pharmacies to run out and they can't order in a new supply until the following month. ## I have had the exact same problem and I don't know what to do. I am almost out and still trying to find. I live in Loganville. Have you had any luck finding? ## Suddenly stopp...

pain management florida
I take morphine and dilaudid for chronic pain associated with my 9 hip surgeries and three car accidents I would like to take methadone for pain management instead of what I'm taking I live in Clearwater Florida ## Hello, Karen! How are you? I'm sorry about what you've been through. Why do you want to switch? Are the Morphine and Dilaudid working for you? Most doctors aren't going to want to prescribe Methadone, due it's extremely addictive nature. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## NO!! I'm uninsured, live 20mi east I4. I've used each of these. Right now methadone was the only thing I could get. I am in so much pain, I want to die! My usual scripts are duragesic 75...
