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...

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...

is morphine in this medicine. I'm allergic to morphine
The oxymorphone bill does not have morphine in it what is a narcotic besides oxycodone I know the oxycodone is in it what is the other narcotic and it is there another one ## Hello, Foxy! How are you? No, there is no Oxycodone in this, either. Oxymorphone is the active ingredient, it is a narcotic on its own. 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?

doctors perscribe morphine
Does anyone know a doctor in Houston tx that perscribe morphine please! ## Hello, Sandra! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, getting a referral from them will likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. ## Hi Sandra..I see a dr in Houston, Morphine is hard to get. You may want to try dilaudid instead. I know of one but you must be on the up and up, have mri's, xrays, past medication records from pharmacy and records from previous pain dr. get back with me if you meet this criteria ## Hi Ann, I don't meet that criteria really but I am 25, I have been seeing a regular doctor and all they can prescribe me is Norco...

cutting up a blue 15 abg
I cut up a blue 15 abg into four piaces and took one by mouth is that ok ## Hello, Opps! How are you? No, this is a time released 15mg Morphine tablet, so it isn't safe to cut or crush it. Doing so could cause you too get too much of the medication at once, which may result in overdose. 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?

yellow small round pill with line on one side ribbon (or symbol) on other side
small yellowish pill, scored on one side and a weird symbol like a ribbon or something on the other side...was told it was it in fact morphine? ## could be valium. ## That is 4mg Dilaudid ## I know what dilaudid look like, this lady told me they were morphine but i cant find a pic of the pill anywhere, theres no mg amound on the pill, the pill may actually be light green, i wish i could take a pic because the symbol is hard to describe ## Hi Rae (post #3), I found a prime suspect to the ribbon-like symbol you described on a few different clozapine tablets that also have a score line on the backside. But because there are other numbers on these tablets as well, I'm wondering if maybe their manufacturer (Teva Pharmaceuticals) could be the same company who makes the table...
