Morphine Overview

Morphine, sold under many trade names,[1] is a pain medication of the opiate type. It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain. It can be used for both acute pain and chronic pain. Morphine is also frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labour. It can be given by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by injecting under the skin, intravenously, into the space around the spinal cord, or rectally.[5] Maximum effect is around 20 min wh...

240 mg morphine sulfate is equivalent to how much oxycontin per day
2 Replies RSS
Have been on 240 mg morphine sulphate per day for 6 yrs and of course is not doing as best as it used to for me to function in my daily life. I want to ask for a conversion to an oxycodone type med since I have been accumulated to that before..I have the back syndrome of HANDS OFF by every doc since 2004 to present. I need to keep myself on a productive path as I'm on now. What equivalent of oxycodone is at my present dose please? Thank you. ## Hello, River! How are you? Oxycodone is approximately 1 and a half times stronger than Morphine, so you'd only need 160mgs of it each day. Have you discussed the issue with your current doctor? How long has it been since you've taking Oxycodone? ## I just posted a link which gives information regarding what medication is equivalent to...

substitute morphine sulfate for oxycontin
8 Replies RSS
Hello: So I just got something from my insurance company telling me they no longer will pay for oxy 20 or the generic..which is off the market anyway. The substitute is morphine sulfate I believe..that's what they are covering. How much of this do I need to equal one 20mg? I take 3 20's per day.. Thanks for any help I can get.. ## Oxycodone is 1.5 times stronger than Morphine, so your daily dose would need to be 90mgs of Morphine to be equivalent, so on the same dosing schedule, you would take 30mgs of the Morphine, 3 times a day. Are there any questions or comments? ## Hi Ms. Verwon, I learn something new from you all of the time. I was under the impression that Morphine was much stronger than Oxycodone. No wonder that when my doctor changed my meds from 5m percocet to 25m morp...

Morphine Sulfate - generic for Avinza
60 Replies RSS
I was in an auto accident 8/21/96 and ever since then I have been dealing with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). For the last 11 yrs I have been on Avinza 270 mg (2 120mg, 1 30mg once a day) by King Pharmaceutical and now my ins company is insisting that a generic is made and sold in the US by Acatavis Elizabeth. I cannot see anything current that it has been released. There is a legal suit between King and Acatavis because it states a generic cannot be released until 11/2017. Generics do not work for me and right now I'm fighting it, but would like to know if it is true about Avinza being made and sold in the US by Actavis. Please let me know if you're able to, I would surely appreciate it. Thank you! ## Hello, Lorraine! How are you? The databases are showing that a generic f...

PILL N 150??? HELP! PLEASE.
Post a Reply
Hey guys I have these pills my friend gave me to help me sleep. They work and are great, and she got them from her mother who has serious back problems to point where she needs oxy and morphine. These pills have N on one side and 150 on the other side. Its white and circular. Some might argue theres a off white colour to it. She said to cut in 4 and take one for one dose. I hope to hear something from someone soon, would just really like to read up on the name. Thank you!!

Morphine caused hypoxia. Will oxycodone be any better
2 Replies RSS
I have low oxygen in my blood. I take 4, 30mg morphine IR daily. Will oxycodone be ## Because my insurance wouldn't pay for my OxyContin witch was only 15 mg my doctor put me on 15 mg moraphine and one a day 5mg Percocet for breakthrough pain I don't think it works as well and fell like I am having withdraws ## @Chuck, Sorry to hear about your situation.... Respiratory depression has been known to occur under the use of opioids (whether it be morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl, etc)... So there's really no way of knowing if switching to another opiate is going to make any significant difference in terms of this risk factor (at least to my understanding). NIH.gov also goes on to list, "difficult or troubled breathing; irregular, fast or slow, or shallow breathing; & shortn...

Does 30mg Of Morphine Sulfate Relieve More Pain Than 50mcg Fentanyl Patches
15 Replies RSS
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...

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
8 Replies RSS
My question concerns drug conversion. The Fentanyl works well, most of time, for my chronic pain, but my insurance now says I can only get it again in March of 2015. This is still Oct., 2014, so I will be out of patches at end of October. I don't understand this, because just stopping the patches would/will cause terrible withdrawal, because if you are only couple days late, withdrawal starts. This happened also recently as my dr. changed (at my request to try something else)100 mcg. patch to only 15 mg. of morphine ER every 12 hours, because of patches costing almost $400 for one month, which I cannot afford, due to "doughnut hole". The change made be very sick within two days, so I had to go back to patches. I didn't think the 15 mg. extended release morphine was enoug...

Morphine 100mg Er
5 Replies RSS
For months I have been taking MSER 100mg, and the shape is oblong, color is light blue and 100 is on one side and E658 on the other side. These pills have been working great. My last refill of MSER, the pills were different. they are round, either light brown or gray, 100 on one side and either a M or a W with a square around the letter. These are not effective at all. Has my pharmacy made a mistake? Can you tell me what company manufacture's each of these pills ?and can you tell me what the different ingredients are between the two? There has to be a reason why one would work so good and one seems like a sugar pill. Thank-you very much ## The tablets with the E 658 100 marking are manufactured by Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. and the ones with the M 100 are manufactured by Mallinckrodt...

morphine 100mg er vs Lower Cost Alternative
38 Replies RSS
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...

Canada Paregoric Purchase
7 Replies RSS
I have ben using Paregoric for years abd it was taken off the American Market . I still am in need as it is the only thing that helps me. Where can I purchase it in Canada ## From what I could gather, The manufacturer "Ranbaxy" of India is the only source for this tincture of opium, but please correct me if I'm wrong. As another possible solution here in the U.S., there are specialized pharmacists called "compounding pharmacists" who know how to make things of this nature. If you have such a company in your area, I'd think it would be very simple for them to compound "tincture of opium" by merely diluting ordinary liquid morphine sulfate to the strength of the prepared tincture. Keep in mind that you'll want to make sure you find legal and legitimate ...
