I found a small white pill with a M on one side and a 5 on the other. I was told that it could be morphine. I want to know what it is!!! That way I will know what is going on with my husband??? Someone please help me to find out what this is... This is the 3rd one I have found in the floor this month. I have children and I am very worried that they could have found these pills and not me!! ## Having worked in pharmacy for years I can tell you it is not a morphine tablet. Can you describe the pill more? I have an idea what i t may be from the sounds of it, does your husband suffer from high blood pressure? ## THIS IS NOT MORPHINE NOR ANY TYPE OF NARCOTIC I realize this is an old post, but since someone has recently replied, I am going to place the pill ID here for others who may be searc... ...

I am new to this fourm, and I have a few questions someone may be able to answer. I have chronic back pain as a result of Cauda Equina Snydrome, and an injury at L5/S1. My Pain Mgt doc made a med change about 3 wks ago. I was one taking Oxycodone 15 MG tablets, but I was still having a LOT of breakthrough pain. As of 3 wks ago, my doc ADDED Morphine Sulf 15 MG's SRT. The combination of the two meds appears to be working but there are still some minor pain issues. I spoke with my doc the other day and we will talk again on Feb 2nd. He told me he thinks going to the 15 MG Morphine Sulf every 8 hrs, vs 12 hrs will help. He alos wanted to see if I could go to 10 MG's of Oxycodone as needed 8 hrs, vs 15 MG's of Oxycodone as needed every 8 hrs. In sum, the 15's MG's of Mor... ...

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... ...

I was wondering I had a pill I know it was morhine. it was an oblong blue shape and color. It has been awhile I'm a chronic pain patient and I cannot take the newoxy op's I took 80mg 3x a day for along time. If any body knows the difference between just the regular morphine and the er opana ect. let me know the ms-contin did not work at all. Also the hydromorphone what is the differences in those meds? I know that is alot of info I just need to knoww. So if you know any of it let me know. THANKS ## If the Morphine ER didn't work for you, then it makes sense that the MS Contin also didn't, because they are both time released Morphine tablets. Opana contains a different narcotic, it is called Hydromorphone, it is very powerful and has helped many people with chronic pain i... ...

I take 145mg of methadone daily .my question is this.i just took 60mg of morphine will i feel it i do no other drugs. this is the first time ive used anything but methadone in 2 years ## Unfortunately, in any medical situation, a patient has to be their own best advocate. Doctors often prescribe medications according to their experience with how well something has worked for other patients. There really isn't a direct answer to your question, as no one can tell you how you would react to Morphine. Since medications can affect everyone differently, some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it doesn't work for. I do know based on research that Methadone is considered to be 3-4 times stronger than oral Morphine (oxymorphone). And given the high dose of... ...

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO START WORKING? ## From my own experiences with morphine it takes any where from 30 to 60 minutes for the drug to take effect.Make sure that you take the pill whole.Don't crush the pill because this will alter the time release of the drug.Drink plenty of water with the pill as so it will kick in faster. ## The regular or time released tablets take between 20 to 30 minutes to start working, however, there is also an instant release on the market that starts working very fast. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Read more: Are there any comments or questions? ...

Morphine 30 sulfate er made by Mylan does not help relieve pain does anyone else have that problem ## I too am finding morphine sulphate ER manufactured by Mylan is not as effective. Almost like going through early withdrawal symptoms, for example, morphine usually paralyzes intestinal movement and causes constipation. I am having cramping and looser stools. I question the correct amount contained in the tablets. ## Sorry to hear about your recent experiences. Medications can and often do affect everyone differently, whereas some people get great results, but there are others that it inevitably just doesn't work for no matter how much they take. However in the case of this particular drug, it seems the majority of people posting on here don't like Mylan's version of it. Addi... ...

i took morphine about 5 hours ago is it safe to take a xanax now
1 Reply RSS
i took a half of a morphine 30mg about 5 hours ago is it safe to take a xanax now ## Hi Missy, From what I'm seeing online, there are moderate drug interactions listed between Morphine and Xanax; with the potential of it causing an increased risk for impaired thinking/judgement, dizziness, drowsiness, and an overall inability to concentrate. So if this is a concern to you I would probably wait at least double that amount of time in between doses, just to be on the safe side. For the record, states that Morphine has a relatively short half-life of anywhere between 1 1/2 to 7 hours. This means that if you took 15mg's, then an estimated 5 hours later (1 1/2 to 7hrs) you'd still have half of that dose (7.5mg) left working in your body. Waiting an additional 5 hours tho... ...

how strong is a 30mg morphine
7 Replies RSS
I have been on and off 5-325 and 10-325 oxycodon for about 6 months now I was wondering how a 30mg morphine tablet would affect me I'm 110 pounds if that helps any. I'm afraid something could happen I've never taken it before and I wasn't sure if cutting them in half would work better? ## Hello, Sam! How are you? Oxycodone is one a half times stronger than Morphine, so you'd need 15mgs of it to equal each 10mgs of Oxycodone. Thus, 30mgs of it would be like taking 20mgs of Oxycodone, at once. 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 nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. It may be too strong for you, if you aren't opiate tolerant. What are ... ...

Ive taken small doses of opiods before,and one 15mg abg, but not on a regular basis. I was just wondering how long tye effects will last, amd when it is safe to drink. And what are warning signs I should look out for? I think im going to be ok though. ## IThe drug is morphine sulfate extended-release, generic for MS Contin 15 mg tablets. It is odd you would be prescribed an extended-release medication if you are only taking it occasionally. MS Contin (and its generics) are used for people requiring continuous pain relief and is taken every 12 hrs. MS Contin Extended Release lasts 12 hrs so that xx mg does of morphine is being slowly released rather than the full dose working immediately (but lasting only 4-6 hrs). MS Contin is NOT intended to be taken as needed so it may be a large enou... ...

Doesn't he need it to work 24 hours straight? ## The orange, oval tablet with the marking 60 E655 contains 60mgs of Morphine in a controlled release formulation, it is a generic for MS Contin. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. The M-Eslon is just another name brand for Morphine. And as to showing pics of all, there are far too many available for anyone to be able to post them all for you. Are there any markings on the one ... ...

over the last 12days i have had bad headakes that i cant manage with just over the counter med "advil-tylanol". so i have been going back to the hospital for help. nothing gets rid of it. so they have been giving me morphine. on sunday they gave me some to take home in pill form. its little seafoam green and has the letters "pms" on it. truth be told its not helping me at all. is this pill realy morphine? if so why wont it work? ## No, this tablet does not contain Morphine, nor any type of narcotic. This tablet contains 40mgs of Propanolol, the active ingredient in Inderal, it is a beta blocker, it is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions, but it has been shown to help with migraines for some people, where other medications fail.

Morphine Patch

My mother has spinal stenosis which cases her great pain. She uses B transpatches 50. which provides no relief. What could be used as an alternative? She is 84. ## I have cervical spinal stenosis. I have used fentanyl patches and lollipops in the past to control my pain. It is very strong but can be given in very small doses and due to her age I doubt a pain specialist would give her any grief over it. Dilaudid also works well for me but I am a poor metaboliser so not many opiatess work for me. You might want to ask about either one of these pain meds. ## Yes, the Fentanyl patches are also what I would suggest asking her doctor about, it is a very strong narcotic, over 80 times stronger than the Morphine, so the patches come in either 0.25mcgs or 0.50mcgs. They are time released and eac... ...

i was given morphine sulf er but was changed to morphine sulfate ir because i was unable to take it every 12 hours due to me returning to work i did not want to drive on it and it was changed so i could take it when i arrived at work and by the time it was time for the next dose i could wait until i got home so the time frame would not be to off . i was told it was to be taken 4-6 hours but when i got it filled it says 2 times a day. my question is how often is the medication usually taken ## Hello, Kat!

Has anyone had experience using this drug to slow or treat chronic diarrhea? I have short bowel syndrome and had 2 resections leaving me with the diarrhea. We are now trying different treatments. ## It does cause constipation, in some cases very severely, as a side effect, so it has been used for this and has worked for some people. The only way to see if it will work for you, however, is to actually try it. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Verwon is quite correct in asserting that morphine sulphate will cause a degree of constipation or, more in keeping with your problem, relief from diarrhoea. However the much weaker analgesic codeine phosphate is much more effective in that regard and even better is dihydrocodeine tartrate, possibly the most constipating opioid bar perha... ...

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. ## Hello, Ralph! How are you doing? Yes, narcotics are actually depressants, so it could be causing or contributing to your depression. However, rather than stopping medication entirely, it might be better for you to just try a different one to see if something else doesn't cause as much depression. 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. Have you tried any oth... ...
