Which Is Stronger 30 Mg Of Morphine Sulphate Er Or 10 Methadone
28 Replies RSS
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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on Methadone tablets for 13 years with a NY pain mgmt doctor who worked alongside an Orthopedic surgeon who originally diagnosed my lumbar-sacral pain from DDD (L5/S1) and nerve damage in my legs, plus osteoarthritis in hips and spine. My Methadone dose began at 30mg/day, and at it's highest 10 yrs later, was on 150mg/day. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009, and lost 130 lbs by 2010. My Methadone dosage was able to be brought ... ...

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... ...

morphine 60 mg sulphate dosage
2 Replies RSS
i have been taking 60mg.morphine sulfate with little relief i just started on methadone hcl 10mg. & found them to be stronger & more effective my wife just believes that it is the change but i am convinced the methadone is stronger who is right? ## It would take 15mgs of Methadone to equal each 60mgs dose of the Morphine, so I'd have to give the win to your wife. However, there is a caveat, it may not be just because of the change to a different medication, it could be due to the fact that the Methadone may just work better for you. Learn more Methadone details here. Sometimes the equivalency or one being stronger doesn't matter, if one just works better with your body. Everyone is different and this happens quite frequently. Are there any other questions I can help with... ...

where can I find methadone in columbus OH
4 Replies RSS
Where can I find a doctor in Columbus Oh that will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain? My doctor gives me percocet but it just doesn't help. ## What other medications have you tried? And what is the dosage of the Percocet? The reason I'm asking it because Methadone should really be the last resort medication, for several reasons. The first is because there are other stronger and safer options available, such as Morphine or higher doses of Oxycodone. Learn more Morphine details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Another is due to the fact that Methadone is so very highly habit forming, so most people never get off of it, even if they're just using it for pain. Learn more Methadone details here. ## I take percocets 7.5. I go to a pain management clinic and that is... ...

Methodone to Morphine Drug Transition
3 Replies RSS
My doc has changed my pain meds. I am taking 90 mgs. a day, and have been for 6 months. It doesn't work anymore. (Nerve damage from 5 failed back surgers and scarring from healing attempts.) He put me on 100mgs of MS Contin twice a day. I NEED to know what if anything I need to know about the transition. Scared as it a high dose. ## email me i have a question ## you're suppossed to get 100 mg of morphine to every 10 mg of methadone which means you should get 900 mg a day. Same thing happened to my wife. You need300 mg every 8 hours ## Pip is actually very accurate, Methadone is much stronger than Morphine and, if you've been taking 90mgs of the Methadone a day, you will need 337.5mgs of Morphine in a day to be at an equivalent dose. A twice daily dosing would require around ... ...

having too many problems filling my msir 30mg script monthly so need to change...what dose of oxycodone is equal to that?
3 Replies RSS
For approx the past six months I have had even more problems than usual filling my morphine ir 30 mg. twice there have been drug shortages. I need to change to an equivilant medication like roxicodone,or something similar. What dose of oxycodone is equal to 4 X msir 30mg per day??? I take a toal of 120 a month, in additon to taking a low dose of methadone as well. I dont want to increase the methadone so need to find something to replace the msir 30mg's. ## Morphine is one a half times stronger than Oxycodone, so you'd actually need a lower dose of the Oxycodone. 20mgs of it for each 30mgs of the Morphine. 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 the... ...

I've been going through pain management for quite a while and I was on percocets morphine pills methadone treatment and recently dilaudid now I have been prescribed 5mg oxymorphone HCl tablets, Is this stronger than the dilaudid, hydromorphone 4 milligram tablet that I was prescribed before ## Very slightly, but not much stronger. 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. How are they working for you? That is actually the more important question. Are they alleviating your pain? ...

Withdrawals - help from Fentanyl
3 Replies RSS
I was on liquid Methadone for chronic pain for years and while on waiting list to switch to a new Pain center, I was weaning off methadone rapidly at 2mgs a day from 120 to 38mg. I was also on 20 to 40 mgs a day oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Now, last month, my new doc put me on 25mcg/h patch. Yesterday, he informed me that I am now ONLY getting pain management from him (understandable) and cut me off and did not prescribe any more oxycodone and I was to stop at 38mgs methadone. Bottom line, will a 50mcg/h patch I started today be enough for my pain and withdrawals? I am scared. ## Did you discuss your concerns with him? The Fentanyl is a very strong narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine actually, but while it can handle pain very well, you may still experience some breakthr... ...

I have been weaning myself off Methadone! I was taking 10mgs 3 times a day. I am now down to less than one tablet a day and will continue until I can say goodby Methadone and I never want to see you again. Now to my real problem. Last week my doctor gave me the Fentanyl 25 MCG/HR Patch MYL. I need something to help with the pain I still have although the Lyrica and Cymbalta have really helped. I did not when she gave the Fentanyl Patch to me that I would have to taper off and that it carried baggage of bad side affects. I have read the messages here and have decided not to use the Fentanyl. Thanks to everyone! ## Sorry, I forgot to tell you that I have Fibromyalgia and IT IS REAL!!!!!!!!! ## That is true, the Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine and i... ...

I love vicodin
5 Replies RSS
I love vicodin 7.5s and 10s. I take vicodin everyday no less than 5 at a time anywhere from 5 to 8 I don't take them all throuout the day I only take them in the evening and I love it. Watson 853, Watson 385, Watson 387, m360, m362, m358, ip110, ip118 , Watson 3203 v3594, v3601, Watson 540 are some of the best. It's a fairly expensive addiction as I buy in bulk supply but I manage to always have them, but my very favorite pill is yellow and has E712 on one side and 10/325 on the other it's not vicodin it's percocet, for those who don't know percocet is just like vicodin but stronger and more addictive. I only like vicodin and percocet, I don't like pills such as oxycontin, methadone, morphine etc. Those don't give me the feeling I like and they're more da... ...

Hydromorph Contin
3 Replies RSS
## From what I understand this is a brand of Hydromorphone, which is essentially a strong narcotic pain reliever derived from Morphine. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. HTH ## I have a friend that was addicted to Hydromorphine Contin. He is off it now with some withdrawl still remains. A Doctor suggested he go on Methadone, but he is very leary to do so. Looking for opinions on what to do to make the right decision ## Hydromorphone is an effective pain med, stronger than morphine, but realize the word "morphine" creates an image in most people's minds of a malevolent illegal drug, like heroin. You won't have trouble getting off this med., if you make a sincere effort to modulate down the amount taken slowly. Virtually eve... ...

The blue, larger then a tylenol, no coating. Just crush it up in a spoon heat it up to a quick boil fold over the melted pill put a cotton in it and dra w it up with a needle and shoot it.
