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 30mg ER
Can I overdose on 1 30mg ER morphine tablet? i weigh 173 lbs if that atters. i have nver taken anything stronger then a hydro 10 and kinda scared to take this medicine. ## I'm not personally aware of the difference in potency from Hydrocodone to Morphine, but I wouldn't suggest taking anything that puts a scare in you like that. If it's too strong it's too strong and your best bet would be to start off with a smaller dose (cut in half perhaps to assess your tolerance). To answer your question though, I don't believe you can overdose on 1 tablet, but you may or may not experience some very undesirable side effects if your body is not used to it. Unfortunately the only way to find out is to try it. I would just suggest a smaller dose to start off. I hope this advice he...

Life on morphine
As I read I just don't know if I should come off 60 mg in the am and 30 in PM. Back surgery conic pain for years now and the MS works. But, is it why I am depressed? I approached my DR about coming off, not much encouragement. Anyway I am 2 days at 60 mg. What's worse pain or the medication.

morphine sulfate immediate release bloodstream anawer plz
How long would it take a 15mg immediate release morphine to enter your bloodstream after orally taking it ## PIill Identifier,Oxycodone 15MG immediate release ## Hello, BabyGaby! How are you? There are not immediate release Morphine tablets, only regular release and extended release. Both of those will take about 15 to 20 minutes to start working, once you take them. 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. Luis, what are you asking? There is no 15mg immediate release Oxycodone.

orange smell & flavor, round tablet, no markings
My dad just realized tonight that his 60mg Morphine Sul tablet tasted different than normal? In fact, it smells & tastes like citrus orange!? There isn't a single marking on these small, round tablets either? I'm really scared that perhaps someone switched out his pills or that the pharmacy mistakingly filled his script with the incorrect prescription?! He is in great need of his painkiller scripts, so I'm really interested in figuring this one out! ## Pretty sure that's a suboxone. Which I find it super hard to believe a pharmacy would mix the two up. If you have a different question or you're raiding a medicine or your dad's cabinet I wouldn't suggest taking it if you have methadone in your system or expect hell on earth. Suboxone is an opiate agonist a...

Does 30mg Of Morphine Sulfate Relieve More Pain Than 50mcg Fentanyl Patches
My pain Dr.had me on 30mg. of morphine sulfate 3 times per day & switched me to 50 mcg. Fentanyl patches at 1 every 3 days.The morphine was keeping me up at night & did'nt seem to ease the pain.Second day on the patch & it does'nt stop the pain either any suggestions will be truely appreciated..Thanx ## I don't have an exact answer to your question, since everyone responds differently to both of these medications (based on tolerance, etc). However, according to numerous articles, Fentanyl is said to be approximately 100 times more potent than Morphine, with 100 micrograms of Fentanyl approximately equivalent to 10 mg of Morphine in analgesic activity (or in regards to pain relief). I hope this information helps! ## You need to give it a little time. I am on 75 ev...

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...

does IV morphine prevent plasma donation?
I had a massive headache/migraine and was admitted to the ER Friday afternoon, dosed with morphine around 5 pm and again around 7pm prior to discharge to home. The great thing is that this awful headache resolved within about 6 hours of the last dose; it was the worst I ever had, after two weeks of stiff neck and dull headaches. I will be following up with a neurologist due to my prior history of cervical fusion surgery and rotator cuff tear in left shoulder, and now, evidence of nerve damage or rotator involvement in the right shoulder. I rarely take pain meds because I don't like the way they make me feel; I have managed pain before with tramadol 50 mg. I would like to know if I need to discuss this in a pre-employment drug panel before hand or stop donating plasma? I never donate...
