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 sulfate er help
Need dr in pittsburgh pa.. been taking ms for awhile want to stay on ## You're not looking for a doctor; you're searching for a drug dealer. I will skip the lecture about the fact that addicts like you make it more difficult in general for people with legitimate chronic pain get the proper medications. Instead of looking in the "Physician" section of the Yellow Pages, try flipping through the "Drug Addiction Treatment" section. You need help,not more drugs. ## Hello, Criss! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. General practice doctors will not be able to prescribe it for you. And if you go in asking for a specific medication, th...

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
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 IV abuse
why lecture people on it.. dont even post if thats all u have to add. if ur really concerned about people's health then just tell them the proper way ..i mean f***, do yall just look for these post to lecture. ## Hi shaun, I think this goes a lot deeper than being concerned about the "abuser's health". One of the most talked about reasons why people take the time to lecture those who abuse, is simply because those who abuse their medications are considered to be the primary reason why legitimate pain patients have such a difficult time obtaining and/or filling their prescription for similar medications. This widespread abuse now has the DEA, doctors, nurses, and pharmacists concerned about who is and who isn't taking their medication properly. So at this point they 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 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...
