Substitute For oxycontin 40mg daily
2 Replies RSS
I am facing major surgery in four weeks time and I am fearful that the same will happen as in a similar operation last year. Cold turkey during recovery and no one would listen. I want to die. If they give me more morphine. Would that work. ## Yes, it could work, but only if they give you an equivalent dosage. Oxycodone is stronger than Morphine, so you would require a higher amount of the Morphine to equal what you currently take. Thus, if you are on 40mgs of Oxycodone, to prevent withdrawals and handle your pain accordingly, you'd need 60mgs of the Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It helps a lot as I dreaded that the same experience might again. I will ask for a plan that must include the correct dosage of morphine e.g. 60mg. Are you speaking from personal expe... ...

Oxycotin, 80, compared to mophine sulphate 100 mg. es
2 Replies RSS
I've been on oxycotin 80, now because of Insurance reasons, Now I'am on Morphine Sulphate 100mg. es, How do they compare and what are the pros and cons? ## The Morphine is not as strong as the Oxycodone, hence the higher dosage being necessary. Otherwise, they are both effective narcotics and they pretty much share the same cons, like the side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. You can read more on the Morphine here: Really, the only pro I can think of is that the Morphine has a slightly lower incidence of causing dependence or addiction. Do you have any other question? ## the morphine is 1000% harder to come off just to warn u its alot more adddictive ...

can you mix dilaudid, morphine, and vicodine 10/325 in a pain management treatment ## A mix of analgesic medications is often used, when someone requires pain management. In many cases, a long acting medication, such as the time released formulations of Morphine or Oxycodone, is used along with something that works fast, like an immediate release or a regular release opiate, to give better pain control, until the one that will work for the longer period of time can start to work. However, it doesn't usually involve 3 different medications, but this can be necessary in some cases of severe, chronic pain that has not responded to other types of treatment or medications. Have they all been prescribed by the same doctor? ...

I am currently taking oxycontin 40 mg and I going from a private insurance plan to a Humana PPO Medicare advantage plan and they don't cover it. Some of the other option they recommend from humana was Methadone, Hydromorphone, Codeine Sulfate, Fentanyal Patch, Morphine, and oxycodone IR. I know Oxycodone is the same active ingredient oxycontin but I also take Oxycodone 15mg for breakthrough pain. It helps somewhat but it does help enough. My good day after taking the medicine and having my spinal cord stimulation implant device on is a 5 but an avg. day is 7.5. To give you a idea what a five to me is I broke both of my arms with one bone poking through was a 5.5 and that is a good day for me. My doctor is very hard to get him to increase my dose.

why different milligrams of different meds
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking different meds trying to see what works with different milligrams. Please explain to me why oxycodone, morphine, dilaudid, and opana are different milligrams? Oxycodone 10, morphine 30, dilaudid 4, and opana 5; why? ## Hello, Denise! How are you? It's simply due to the fact that some medications are stronger than others. It is the same with some heart and blood pressure medications, a person may need a higher dose of one to achieve the same effect that another one did at a lower dose. The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic analgesics, which carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Just to give you an idea, Oxycodone is on a half time stronger than Morphine, so you... ...

10 mg Zohydro ER strength compared to 10 mg narco ?
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone taken 10 mg hydrocodone tabs 1to 3 tabs at once to help with your pain. I want to know what I can expect in the strength of 10 mg er once taken . Is it the same as 1 hydro or much stronger ? I have some breathing issues taking 10 mg OxyContin but not with 15 -30 mg. IR 30 mg oxycodone. ## The FDA considers oxy and hydro to be morphine equivalents, but some feel oxy is stronger. Zohydro is a 12hr er med. Depending on how often you were taking oxy, to replace a 10mg er dose your doc would probably start you at 15mg or 20mg Zo and adjust from there. A problem with taking three ir norco doses at once is that each dose usually has 325mg of acetaminophen. While many docs feel that up to three grams of acetaminophen a day not a problem, it serves to analgesic purpose for real pain a... ...

I am in pain management and I currently take oxy 30mg 3x's a day... my doctor is willing to switch me to something else if I want, since the oxys do not provide enough relief. when I asked her what kind of dose I would start at the only thing she would match mg for mg would be morphine..opana she will only start me at 20mg 2 per day. does anyone know if this would be equal to the oxy I take now??

MS Contin

My Doctor just switched my Lortab to MS Contin 60 mg, 12 hr. time release. I had been taking Lortab for 13 yrs and it was no longer effective. I am achieving pain relief with MS Contin but my entire body itches. Will this symptom go away with time? I do recall that I had itching when first using Lortab which eventually went away. Has anyone had the same experience and does the itching go away? Thanks so much!! ## itching is common side effect of many pain medications with oxycontin or oxycodone being the worse, consult with your Dr. in regards of using bendryl, this can cause drowsiness so be careful ## MS Contin contains the active ingredient Morphine CR, which is a very potent narcotic analgesic.

How Can I Get My Pm Doctor To Switch Me From Percoset Roxicontin

Hi, I am currently prescribed 10/325 oxycodone 4 times a day, I REALLY want to get my PM doctor to switch me to Roxicodone but don't know how to go about asking him without sounding like a druggie, I have tried my husbands Roxi's twice and they help me better and last longer, just not sure how to word the request, last visit the dr offered to switch me to morphine but honestly that scares me to be on morphine ## I'm not surer why the Morphine would scare you, when it's not as strong and dangerous as the Oxycodone you are currently taking. What does is his Roxicodone? It contains the active ingredient Oxycodone, which is the same as the narcotic in your Percocet, but the Percocet also contains Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone to work better. ## Tell your doctor yo... ...

My baby sister is addicted to oxycodone. She started using oxycontin when she was 15, she is now 25 and has moved on to smoking oxycodone, morphine, and even the jelly off of phentanyl patches. She has been (as she puts it) a "slave" to this stuff for 10 yrs now. She assures me that overdose is impossible when you smoke it, is this true? Most importantly, how do I save her? ## I'm very sorry about your situation. First question I have is, does your sister actually want to quit? Because if she doesn't want to it is impossible to make her stop. I am currently going through the same. Except I am the addict. I smoke or snort them.

how do you get the same effect from morphine sulphate er as oxycodone 15mg
Post a Reply
I have taken Oxycodone for a couple of years prescribed by my pain manegement Dr. He recently prescribed 15mg morphine sulphate ER twice daily as well as the oxy. I took my first dose and I literally felt nothing. No added pain relief, no euphoria, nothing. When I called the Dr and told him it had no effect, he told me to take 2 15mgs at a time 2 times daily. I havent tried that yet. I would prefer to crush them and use them as a shorter acting med if that is possible. I often run short on the oxy before it is time for my next fill and would like to know if anyone has experimented with the morphine sulphate ER and found out how to take it to get the same effect. Can it be crushed or chewed? How much of that powder should be taken? It would be nice to use them to carry me when I run shor... ...
