how strong is a 30mg morphine

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 ... ...

How are you? To give you a comparison, Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so for each 30mgs of Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine to be equivalent.

How are you doing? Has there been any change? According to the NIH conversion information for opiates, Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, thus, being switched from 30mgs Oxycodone to 30mgs of Morphine was actually lowering your dose, so it is unsurprising that you are still in pain. The FDA warns that narcotic medications carry th... ...

The doctor said that 30mg of morphine is enough to take care of my pain in my left leg amputated above the knee, is enough for my pain ???? ## Hi Ken, weight and individual metabolism play a significant role in the amount of medicine needed. Your doctor will start with the lowest dose he feels should work, then should reaccess your pain levels and go up or down based on your individual response. Hope this helps. Best wishes! ...

how strong is a 15 mg ER morphine vs 30mg oxycodone
8 Replies RSS
I was taking 30mg oxycodone and the doctor switched to 15 mg Morphine ER and 15mg oxycodone and the pain is the worst it's been in the last 8 months. Am i going crazy or is it possible that the morphine does nothing for me. And if so I can't see the doctor for another 7 days ## 15mg er morphine is the least amount available in the er class of pain meds, er stands for extended release, this means that basically you are receiving 15 mg per 6 hrs, over a 12 hr period. and obviously you receive half of the dose you were getting with oxycodone. long story short, you Dr.isn't doing you any favors, only reducing your pain meds and increasing your pain!, 15 mg er morph doesn't do much at all! ## Morphine when taken by mouth is super weak. I am suprised you didnt have some feelin... ...

How much does a 30 miligram tablet release every hour if you take one very 12 hours ## Hello! How are you? The strength is 30mgs, but the specifics on their time released are not released, because that would actually be proprietary information. Thus, they only have to prove with testing that the medication is being released to the FDA, but not tell the public how much each hour, half hour or whatever. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am 110 lbs and afraid to take the 30 mg ER Morphine I was prescribed as I believe it's a lot...I was taking hydrocodone 10/325.

Hello. I take Norco 10/325 TID with MS Contin 20mg er BID for chronic back pain, sciatica, degenerative disease. I never get drowsy and feel it does the job because I notice no pain. I recently tried oxycodone with the letter M on one side & 05/52 on the other which I think is 5mg. Which one is stronger? The oxy i tried or the MS Contin that I've been on? ## 20mg Ms is two times Stronger than a 5mg oxy for sure . ## I noticed that the original poster had a couple typos when referring to Oxycodone and putting the pill imprint for their Morphine directly afterwards, causing some confusion. They also put Norco 10/325 (Hydrocodone/apap) in the underlying description, so I don't know which of the two drugs they are referring to... According to patient commentary in a related thre... ...

how much stronger is methadone to morphine
3 Replies RSS
I would like to know exactly how much more mg methadone has compared to morphine.Thank you! ## Hello, Mark! How are you? There is no direct conversion, it can vary depending on what dosage of Morphine was being taken and the individuals tolerance to opiates. For example, where it would start at would be a 2mg Morphine to 1mg Methadone ratio, for someone that was taking less than 30mgs of Morphine, but it can go as high as a 20 to 1 ratio, is someone were taking much higher doses. 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. What dosage of Morphine is being converted? ## Methadone is 10 times stronger than morphing I was on it for long ... ...

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... ...

There usually isn't any need to keep taking both to ease the transition, since one can prevent withdrawals from another. The Morphine isn't as strong as the Oxycodone, to you will require a higher dosage, to equal what you were taking, but it is very effective for many people. It can cause the same side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry m... ...

I just want to know which drug works the best Oxycodone or Morphine, I was switched from Oxy to Morphine. Was taking Oxy 10/325 and now take 30 on the morphine. ## Hi, Jojo! How are you feeling on the Morphine? Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so for each 10mgs of Oxycodone you'd need 15mgs of Morphine to be equivalent. So, by being switched to 30mgs of Morphine, you're actually on a higher dosage.

Here's the link for reference: However, due to possible side effects, individual tolerance, body chemistry, and other personal factors, my understanding is that not all opiates provide the same type of effects or relief even at what would be considered an equivalent dose.

i am now taking morphine sulfate 30 mg er tabs, and oxycodone 30 mg ir tabs morphine1 tablet every 8 hours and 1 tablet of oxycodone every 8 hours.but when waking up in the morning i have these terrible bad headache. i almost have to vomit. is that to happen? thanks sharon ## Hi Sharon, To answer your first question, Oxycodone is said to be approximately 1.5x as potent on a milligram to milligram basis. So for each 30mg Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine. However because everyone reacts to these medications differently, it's almost like comparing apples and bananas here. Regarding side effects, drug interactions state that "using morphine together with oxycodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also e... ...

How different is Morphine Sulfate 30mg E 653 from a 30mg perocet, and is it dangerous to take it like its a percocet or vicodin, is it ok to take in severe cases of plantars fasciitis ## There is no 30mg Percocet, so I assume you're talking about a regular release Oxycodone tablet, whereas Percocet would contain Acetaminophen and Oxycodone and is only available with a maximum of 10mgs of the Oxycodone. As to a comparison, Oxycodone is actually one and half times stronger than Morphine, so it would take 45mgs of Morphine to equal 30mgs of the Oxcycodone, so you may not get as much pain relief, as you would from the Oxycodone. It is a narcotic, so yes, it can be dangerous to take, just like all of them are and it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, constipation and dia... ...

I am in a confusing debate with ex husband which is stronger 30 mg of morphine sulfate E.R or 10 mg of methadone? ## Methadone is stronger than Morphine, just as an example, if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine, the equivalent dosage of Methadone would only be 3mgs, so it's a roughly 1mg to 10mg ratio.

Does anyone take Kadian and how is it, how long does it last, it is not very strong to me ## In response to the question about Kadian, I have taken it in a dosage of 12 to 20 100mg capsules per day. It is basically morphine sulfate, and the thing I do like about it is that it kills the pain more in the body as opposed to the brain, so you feel more normal. The down side is that is makes you sleepy sometimes, causes more constipation than Oxy, or Feninyl, and has a ceiling around 2 grams/day, in other words beyond that amount there is no additional relief when taking more of the med. Overall, I have found that I can take it once a day along with 4 30mg Oxycondone IR in the morning and two to four 10mg Valiums at bed time. That way I wake up in some pain, but can go to the bathroom, and t... ...
