I have a pill that is purple wih 30 on one side and abg on the other. Is it a mophine pill? ## Yes, 30mgs. ## yes it is ms contin morphine ## Yes, that is a Morphine pill. Most likely MS Contin, which is the extended release form of Morphine so make sure you swallow it whole and don't crush, chew, or break before taking in order to prevent too much being released into your system all at one time. ## Wow, now that's an echo. LOL! Three of us answering the same question. And yes, Carol is correct, it is a generic for Ms Contin, so it is a controlled release morphine, so crushing or breaking the pill can be very dangerous and may cause severe reactions or overdosage. Here's our monograph link for more information if anyone needs it: MS Contin Info Click Here ## I found a pill a... ...

Is Morphine100mg.SR dangerous ?, Can it cause an overdose if crushed or chewed by being released to fast in the bloodstream? Does it come with a warning? ## Yes, if someone isn't opiate tolerant and they crush or chew it, this dosage could cause an overdose, as it is a pretty high one. And yes, the prescription bottle will normally have a warning label instructing you not to crush, chew or cut the tablets. Learn more Morphine details here. has this been prescribed for you? Are you afraid of taking it? ## I take both a prescribed immediate and slow release Morphine Sulfate that are only 30mg each.

Ive heard you shouldnt crush or chew a morphine tablet..why is this? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? This is usually referring to the time released tablets, crushing, cutting or chewing them can destroy the time released nature and may result in your getting to much of the medication, at once, which could cause a dangerous overdose. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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.

How Much Morphine Is Opana 10 Mg equal to?
1 Reply RSS
My Dr prescribed opana er 10 mg for pain. I was prescribed morphine sulfate er 60 mg and at one time was prescribed as much as 130 mg before i had surgery(gastric bypass which took a lot of pressure off of my back) and allowed me to lower my dosage. But since I've changed to Opana Er its just not enough for the pain. I don't sleep and if I do doze of I wake up from the pain. I'm desperate for help and think I need to be put back on morphine sulfate. My Gastric Dr instructed me to chew, crush or break my medications but with extended release you can't do that. Many pain management is almost greeting ready to send me to another state where they can treat me more efficiently. I can't afford to be going back and fourth to another state. I want to get my gastric Dr to app... ...

The ER means that it is a time released tablet, so crushing or breaking it could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once, which creates the risk of overdose.

will crushing the pill give me better relief? ## ER pills are not to be crushed ## Crushing them is a very dangerous practice, you could get too much of the narcotic at once and overdose yourself. These are time released for a reason. If you are having trouble with adequate pain relief, then please speak to your doctor. I was on these for several years for pain management and they are a very strong medication. I do have to say, however, there are some types of pain that they should not be used for, what condition are you taking them for? ## If you are taking an antibiotic for Azitmonuycin can you crush them & drink with juice ? ...

Morphine Sulfate ER non enteric coated
1 Reply RSS
Is it okay to break this tablet in half. It does not has any type of coating to delay its release into the system. It just has a bunch of fillers. I used to be a pharmacy tech. We were taught it was okay to break in half if it was scored, it should only be taken whole if in capsule form or had any type of coating (for slowing the release down.) These pills are rather large and have no coating. Sometimes it is easier for me to take them in two small pieces rather than one larger one. I never ever crush them. ## No, the ER stands for extended release, which means there is something inside the tablet that controls the rate of the release of the medication. Not all time released formulations rely on an outer coating, it is sometimes incorporated into the interior of the pill, due to the fac... ...

Why Can't I Cut Morphine SR If My IR Dose Is The Same?
Post a Reply
My dr. has been giving me 30 mg morphine immediate release for several years. I just had my prescription filled and noticed that my new ones say SR.I'm sure it was a mistake and my dr. and I never had any discussion about it. The pharmacy is closed now but I need my medicine. So since I am used to the 30 mg IR already, why would it hurt to crush or cut open the same amount of mg in SR? I can't wait until the pharmacy opens again tomorrow afternoon. ...

roxane 54 262
2 Replies RSS
I found information online last night that the Roxane Labs 30 mg, morphine sulfate, imprint 54 262, with scored line on other side is a time released medication, with common usage of every 12 hours. A friend of mine got a prescription of this exact med and the directions are to take 1/2 to 1 pill every 4 hours. Also, there were no warning labels on the bottle regarding not breaking or chewing this med. If this med is time released is he not in danger by breaking the pill in order to only take half? ## Any time one breaks or crushes a time release medication they are altering the way the dosage is delivered. This is especially worrisome when it is a narcotic like Morphine, because it allows the dosage to be given all at once instead of over time. There are 15mg tabs that are immediate re... ...

I just died from running two; no, not because an opiate overdose, but because the wax blocked an artery to my heart and I suffered a self induced heart attack right there on the floor! So, all in all, there is than one way to over- do-it with these i.v. meds. ## Were you in the hospital? Was it a medically confirmed heart attack? I am not certain what you mean by wax blocking an artery. This is not an IV med, this is a tablet that contains 60mgs of Extended Release Morphine, a generic for MS Contin. This is a very potent narcotic analgesic. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.

Cut/crush any morphine pills
1 Reply RSS
When I was in a nursing/rehab home I crashed 2 times. They were cutting/crushing my morphine pills cause it was hard for me to swallow. I had had a heart pump and respirator used on me for a few days while in the hospitals. Is there any kind of morphine pills that can be broken/crushed? Just wondering. Not suing anyone. Its been 3 years. ## creek1956, Extended Release/Long Acting Meds Cannot be crushed or cut because with the way they are made, you could get too much at one time. Immedicate release meds are different. I'm sure that the morphine you received in the nursing facility was immedicate release and not extended release/long actiing. As long as you didn't suffer any great Irréversible harm that was due to neglience that is below the standard of care when you live, y... ...

i found a pill that is round and green in color says 30 on one side and looks like it says E653 on other is this morphine is it injectable?? ## Yes, this is Morphine CR 30mgs, a generic for MS Contin. And NO IT IS NOT INJECTABLE! It is a tablet for a reason, am injectible would be a liquid. This is a 12 hour time released tablet. ## Yes it is injectible, you just need to know how to do it. Most people try to say no heat applied, but i have found that if you crush the pill add 2cc of water, or a little more, then bring to a boil. The gel stuff will still be there, just throw your micron filter or cotton in there and move it around to collect all of the loose liquid. After you've gotten all of it out you can, i add a little more water to solution then repeat. nice buzz ...

2 Replies RSS
i have two different kinds of morphine abg cr ## It is actually not safe to inject medication that is not intended to be used in that manner, especially time released pills. Most of them contain fillers, which are not intended to be broken down by the human body, but are normally expelled in your waste. If you crush or dissolve a tablet to inject it, you are putting these substances directly into your body in a manner, in which, it cannot get rid of them. This creates the risk of blockages, which could lead to embolisms and strokes. Are there any questions or comments? ## Is this a extended relief pills ...
