Was taking perc5-325 for 4 yrs every 12 hrs. Got to the point it wasn't working for me animore .now I'm on ms 15mg twice a day .any suggestions on this pill .kinda a nervous. Thank you. ## Hello, Mariah! How are you? MS Contin contains the active ingredient Morphine. The FDA classifies it as 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. It would basically be equivalent to taking a 10/325mg Percocet every 12 hours, however, the MS Contin is time released, so you may get better pain control with it. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

how long for iv morphine to wear off
1 Reply RSS
They gave my mom 4mg of morphine in her iv. How long do the effects last, ## Hi jen, According to, morphine is said to have a short half-life of 1.5 to 7 hours. They go on to note that close to ninety percent of a single morphine dose is excreted through urine within 72 hours. However, on the contrary, a different report coming from states that morphine has a "plasma" (blood) half-life of 2.5 to 3.0 hours. So when it comes to IV administration, this is probably the half-life I'd refer to for a more accurate estimate. Though this is mostly speculative, it's been thought that after 3 half-life's, a medication like this is typically out of your body / no longer working to relieve pain. There are also other important factors that can determine how long ... ...

I got an inj. of morphine in my leg yesterday, as I suffer from chronic back pain. My dr gave me the inj. around 12:40pm yesterday after lunch, and I'm wondering how long it lasts, as it did help, and this morning I was a bit spaced out. So is that inj. still working to control the pain? ## Hello, Tweeter! How are you? Generally, it only last a few hours, but the side effects may linger longer, which could explain why you were feeling spaced out. The FDA classifies this medication as 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.

how long after taking suboxone can you take morphine
4 Replies RSS
I took 16 mg of syboxone at 4am Saturday morning and got my morphine filled now. Is it safe to take it after 16 hours. ## Hello, Scott! How are you? No, the Naloxone in the Suboxone will prevent the Morphine from having any effect, you usually need to wait at least 72 hours, before other narcotics will work, again, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as 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.

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... ...

How do I stop morphine patch?
1 Reply RSS
I've been on a fen patch for five years due to Pernicious Anemia and nerve damage amongst other things. No other pain relief have worked and I can't absorb through the stomach so need it through the skin. Its been gradually raised and now I an bear it. But I'm always feeling tired,jittery and forgetful though these are symptoms of PA as well. I'm thinking I might start to feel more normal if I stop the patches.I'm fed up of the horror nightmares too and forebodings. I want to switch pain killers to a more bearable one if possible and I don't want to suffer too badly while withdrawal which to be honest, is really scaring me. Any help and advice would be very appreciated, thanks. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Fentanyl isn't the same as Morphine, it's actual... ...

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.

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.

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.

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 are you? Fentanyl is the strongest available, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Your doctor will most likely have you start at the 25mcgs or 50mcgs dosage, since it's so potent to see how it works for you.

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.

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.

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.

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... ...
