100 mg morphine sustain release
Hey I have 100mg morphine pills they are grey and sustained release. They are canadian pills. Can i sniff them to get around the sustained release? Or would that be wasting the pill? ## It would actually be endangering yourself. Most tablets contain fillers, especially the time released formulations and not all of these fillers are meant to be broken down by the human body, instead they are normally just expelled in your waste. If you crush a tablet to snort it, you are directly inhaling these fillers and it can cause blockages in your lungs, which could eventually lead to respiratory arrest. Are there any other questions? ...

morphine
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... ...

Morphine100mg Sustained Released
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. Am I taking 60 mg at a time if I take both at the same time, or is the slow release tablet released in smaller amounts to equal 30mg over the 8 hour time frame? ## The Extended Release is r... ...

MORPHINE 30mg
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? ...

How Much Morphine Is Opana 10 Mg equal to?
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... ...

morphine 60mg er
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 ? ...

is this morphine
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 ...

how do i inject morphine abg cr 15mg
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? ...

morphine sulfate cr
can I crush morphine sulfate cr 60mg? ## No, the CR stands for Controlled Release, which means this is a generic for MS Contin, a time released medication. These tablets slowly release the medication over a 12 hour time period. By crushing it, you risk getting too much of the Morphine at once, which could cause an overdose. An overdose could cause severe organ damage and death. Do you have trouble swallowing the tablets? ## Yes, you can crush it and insuffulate it as it is water soluble. As the man above me said, watch out. If you have taken the Morph orally then you will be able to snort it. If you are taking them everyday for pain I would highly advise against this as it will build up tolerance and you might find yourself going out side your doctor to get more opiates (Heroin too eh, ... ...

Morphine 30mg Purple M
What is the absolute best way to take the purple 30mg Morphine, sustained release, and get it into my body for immediate reaction? Not interested in injecting them. What to do ? Thank you for any help. ## Is this a capsule that you can empty or just a solid pill? I would personally crush or empty the pill or capsule into water if I was trying to get it in my system quicker. Not sure if this would even make a difference though if you are taking it on a full stomach. If you want it to absorb quicker (by normal means of ingesting it) take it near an empty stomach or with a smaller portion of food than you would normally do with. Hope this helps! ## Hi Brad, My son is a medical rep. and recently re-educate me about the outer coating on the slow release oxycontin. Previously I had thought it... ...

Best Way To Do Morphine Sulfate Sr 100?
Can be snorted? Or best way to get into body (system) quickly ## It isn't safe to try to use any pill in a manner in which it was not intended. Tablets, especially these times released products, contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, instead they are normally just expelled in your waste. Crushing a pill to snort it, or mix it for injecting places these substances into your body in a manner, in which, it cannot be properly processed out and this creates the risk of blockages. If they were snorted, this could cause respiratory arrest and injecting could cause stroke, or embolism. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

morphine 25mg light pink i need all info about it.can you shoot them up??what do they look like?? ## First, there is no 25mg Morphine tablet, the regular release tablets are 10, 25 and 30mg and the controlled release are 15,30,60,100 and 200mgs. The markings on some pink or similar colored Morphine tablets are: E 30, oval, 30mgs ABG 30, round 30mgs E 655 60, caplet shaped, 60mgs ABG 60, round, 60mgs E 200, elliptical, 200mgs M 60, round, 60mgs Do any of these match the tablet you have?

morphine sulfate neltrexone
why would they put an opate blocker with morphine in a pill together ## I assume you are referring to the medication Embeda? This has been done to try to prevent abuse of the time released Morphine that the tablets contain. Many people crush them and then try to snort or inject it. If they try it with a tablet that contains the Naltrexone, then the opiate is neutralized and they will have wasted their time. Same if they try to chew the tablet. It does not affect the efficacy of the Morphine, if the pill is swallowed, like it is supposed to be. Do you have any other questions? ...

Morphine Sulfate ER non enteric coated
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... ...

How To Inject Ms Contin
I'm a cancer patient who is not getting the pain relief I need, I need to inject my pills, But I can't do it well and end up losing most of my meds. ## It is actually not safe to inject medications that are not intended to be used that way, especially time released tablets, such as this one, which contains the active ingredient Morphine. Tablets contain fillers and not all of them are meant to be broken down by the human body, instead they are normally just expelled in your waste. However, when you crush and dissolve a tablet to inject it, you are putting these substances in your body, in a way in which, it cannot process them out. This creates the very real risk of blockages, which could lead to embolism or stroke. You really need to discuss a different option, with your doctor... ...

I have been taking 60MG Time Release Morphine for 5 years. I take as directed to take. I do not chew,crush,snort inject the morphine. I have no side effects at all. It helps me a lot with my severe pain due to my upper and lower back having herniations in both areas.

cutting up a blue 15 abg
I cut up a blue 15 abg into four piaces and took one by mouth is that ok ## Hello, Opps! How are you? No, this is a time released 15mg Morphine tablet, so it isn't safe to cut or crush it. Doing so could cause you too get too much of the medication at once, which may result in overdose. 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? ...

four 15mg same as 60mg
does four 15mg morphine have the same effect as a 60mg, and how is the best way to prepare for injection ## There is really no way to prepare for an injection, other than to properly clean the injection site. Are you speaking of tablets or an injection? If you're asking about tablets, it all depends on the formulation, some are time released and some aren't, so this will be a factor on whether or not they are equivelent. ## get a large spoon, put the pills in the spoon, draw up 60 cc of water, put a flame under the spoon and keep it going in a circular motion till it boils.then crush the pills with the end of the plunger on the needle, cook more if it needs it, put a tiny ball of cotton in the stuff,and draw it up slowly........ ## Morphine Sulfate CR (Controlled Release) Your B... ...
