Morphine Overview

Morphine (INN) (/mrfin/) (sold under nearly a hundred trade names) is an opioid analgesic drug. It is the main psychoactive chemical in opium. Like other opioids, such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, and 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, although physiological dependence may take several months to develop. Tolerance to respiratory depression and e...

can i cut morphine pills
2 Replies RSS
I've been on morphing 15 mg for 9 years at 4 times a day . witch would equal to 60 MG's. A day and now they decided to put me on 30 milligrams time release twice a day . is this still the same thing or different and how ## Hello, Blackbetty! How are you? The time released can give some people better pain control, since it is slowly released over the 12 hour dosing period. That is the only difference. And no, you can't cut or break them, because that could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once. They must be swallowed whole. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ##...

zohydro compared to morphine
2 Replies RSS
Anybody who has knowledge pl3ase chime lectures please. Currently taking 4-60mg morphine er a day plus 8-10mg oxy a day. My questions are this. Doc wants to change me to zohydro. Vicodin has NEVER worked in past is zohydro gonna help? What is equivalent to 4-60mg morphs a day??? Lastly what is avg per tab cost??? ## Hello, Mike! How are you? To be honest, it is doubtful that the Zohydro will help you, if Vicodin didn't. Zohydro is just Hydrocodone without the Acetaminophen. It is also converts 1 for 1 with Morphine, so you'd need 60mgs of it for each 60mgs of Morphine that you were taking to be therapeutically equivalent. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as n...

light blue round pill ABG on one side and 100 on the other... how often do I take it? ## Hello, Pio50ya! How are you? You should only take it as prescribed by your doctor. This tablet is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 100mgs of Morphine in a time released formulation. It is usually taken every 12 hours.

Pain Management doctors in Utah
Post a Reply
I moved from TN to Utah and I'm having problems finding a doctor who is taking on new patients. I have been on 60 100mg morphine 2x a day and 120 20mg oxycodone 4x a day since 2009 after breaking my back in several places. Can anyone offer any advice? Even with being on disability supporting MRIs, X-rays, etc they still want to do another surgery. Unless something new comes out I'm not willing to try surgery again. I just want to stay on what worked and not have them say physical therapy or acupuncture will fix everything because it won't. Any suggestions?

I am still trying to find a Dr. who will take over my Pain management contract in Arizona. I live in South Scottsdale. I have been in Pain Management for over 5 years because I am on a high dose of medication no Dr. wants to help me. If anyone out there can help me please. I was told my Dr. he was retiring In Dec. they gave his patients 3 week notice. I did find a Dr. he was willing to take me on as a patient. He wrote my scripts in January when I went back in Feb. he had his PA come in the room hand me a 30 day supply of my medication and told me I was being discharged because of the Dr. I was seeing. I was blown away. I called back after I calmed down and called the office the front desk girl said he decided he did not want to deal with my old Dr. patients and when a Dr. calls to veri...

Anyone know a good Dr in Utah who can prescribe opiate meds? My husband has verybad bbulging and herniated discs in his back, arthritis in his spine and fibromyalgia and usually takes 60mg morphine e.r but since moving here we can't find a Dr that will fill his RX they all want him to do physical therapy when it doesn't work... ## Hello, Buddhagrl! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. He might be creating part of the problem himself, if he's calling doctors or going to appointments and asking them to prescribe this medication. It is a highly addictive, controlled substance and most doctors will view that as being drug seeking behavior. What he needs to do is set up an appointment with a pain management specialist and make sure that they g...

Morphine VS oxyContin
1 Reply RSS
I was taking OxyContin 80 mg twice a day it is now no longer on my formulary the doctor switched from oxy to morphine extended release morphine extended release is the dark blue oblong pill generic version . This morphine generic does not work nearly as good as the oxy.. Is there other generics that are better than the current one that I'm taking? ## Hello, Donald! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. What are the markings on the Morphine tablet that you're taking? Do you know what the dosage is? Morphine is weaker than Oxycodone, so you'd actually need take 120mgs of it to be equivalent to each 80mgs of Oxycontin that you were taking. Thus, I'm concerned that you may not be on the correct dose. The FDA classifies this as a narcotic analgesic, so it h...

morphine vs dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
I have had occassional reactions to Morphine shots in ER (severe nausea/vomiting, hallucinations.) And began to think I was allergic or sensitive to it. When hospitalized for severe back pain and inability to sit up or walk, I was put on a pain pump of dilaudid and sent home on the pump. I had never heard of dilaudid before but lost my appetite and anything I ate, threw it up. In 6 weeks I lost 23 lbs, just lying in bed. I became weaker and weaker and began to think I was going to die. I had told the home nurse on several visits what was happening and she just said it was a side effect. Finally a male nurse did my home visit and when I told him, he said he needed to call the Dr., who recommended going to ER and having my electrolytes checked. While there I learned it was a drivitive of,...
