30mg morphine vs oxycodone
I was on 5 30mg of oxycodone ir after doing some reading after you have more than 120mg in your system the rest is not helping you it's just loading your system up and your asking for long term problems my dr. Has since put me on 3 30mg oxycodone and one 30mg morphine extended release for nighttime and that seems to be the majic for me it helps the hard pain during the day and at night lets your system calm down when I'm sleeping . ## even though oxycodone is 1.5 x stronger than morphine, if you take an equivalent dose of mophine sulfate (90 m. vs. 60 oxy), will you still develop the same tolerance/addiction/dependency from the morphine as from the oxycodone? ## Great Gw! I am very glad that you found a combination that works so well for you. And yes, potentialaddict, you would ... ...

Oxycodone and morphine in one pill?
I came across a pill that was supposed to have 15mg oxycodone and 15mg morphine in same pill. It is round white with 262 on one side, and what looks like a crescent moon design or whatever on the other side. What is it, and is the above pill even manufactured? ## There is no such combination pill in the U.S. What your tablet contains is 15mgs of Oxymorphone, it is not a combination of both, but it is a narcotic analgesic. Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and dry mouth. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ...

how many mg of morphine is equal to oxycodone
Thirty mg morphine equals how many mg oxycodone? ## i have used both within the last couple of months… i wouldn't say they are "equivalent" or use the word "equal" per se - but in my experience, they are interchangeable, & the doctor who prescribed both of them had prescribed 30mg of oxycodone and 30mg of morphine…. and i used them at the same dose and frequency…. imo, they are pretty similar… although the morphine is more sedating than the oxycodone….. ## Hi Jerry, According to an equianalgesic (opioid) chart from Stanford, Oxycodone is said to be about 1 1/2 times more potent than Morphine on a milligram to milligram basis. They conclude that 120 mg of oral Oxycodone is similar to taking 180 mg of oral Morphine. However, this is no... ...

lyrica 75mg and oxycodone morphine 15mg 30mg
I can't stop sleeping and being really dizzy I take lyrica 75mg twice a day and Percocet 5mg 4 times a day and morphine 15mg 3 times a day and 30mg twice a day. Am I overdosing? ## Glenn, Lyrica is awful! I was on the same meds. I refused to touch Lyrica. I hate the stuff. Do yourself a favor and try to get off all of this stuff, as I have done. It ruined my life for the past seven years. The Lyrica didn't take me long to realize how bad that stuff is. I only took it for several months on a couple of occassions. That is how I realized that it was a huge problem with nodding off. Best of luck. God bless you, Dena ## Hello, Glenn! How are you? These symptoms could be caused by the Morphine, it is well known to cause them in some people that take it. I experienced them myself, when... ...

oxycodone I8
I get 10 mg. Endocodil in Mexico made by BioGenTec. It is supposed to be the same as the oxycontin prescribed to me in the U.S. However it is no the time released version that I prefer, and is very expensive. Mexico will not allow Oxycodone into the country by mail. Is there any way aroun it,and cheaper? ## I teach english here in Chihuahua Mexico and none of the pharmices here have oxycodone so my doctor gave me Liberaxim it's 2 milgram morphine doesn't take my pain away please help ## I have tablets that are supposed to be 20mg oxycodona tablets from Mexico made by Biogentech. These tablets are white, round, and have no markings and are not scored. They are approximately the size of a 40mg oxycontin tab. Are these tablets legit? ## As to the last post, Mexico has finally start... ...

Oxycodone & other shortages
This all seems to have started around the same time Darvon was pulled from the shelves with nothing to replace it. (Darvon & Tramadol combined was finding some success in providing relief for fybromyalgia) I gave up on trying to get Walgreens to fill prescriptions for Oxycodone/Oxycontin. After trying Walmart, several Publix, CVS & most of the Walgreens in my area, I am trying the Morphine based product MS Contin instead. I had an allergic reaction to the generic brand and am now on day 2 of the manufactor's and am experiencing similar problems. The conversion formula from Oxycodone to Morphine isn't reliable either. Meanwhile, the local Walgreens are now out of Adderall going on 2 weeks, because the company that makes it (Corapharma & Barr make the two generics) app... ...

If I Normally Take 40mg Of Oxycodone What Would Be The Equivalant Dose Morphine Ir
what is the eqivalent dosage of morphine vs oxycodone? I currently take 40mgs of oxycodone, and would like to change to MS IR, what amount of MS IR is equal to 40mgs of Oxycodone? ## Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so an equivalent dosage would be 60mgs. However, you do need to make sure you taking the same formulation, since both Oxycodone and Morphine come in regular, instant and time released formulations. Thus, if you're taking the regular release formulation of Oxycodone, then you would need a regular release formulation, in that dosage, of the Morphine. The only 40mg Oxycodone available is the extended release, Oxycontin. Due to the dangers of overdose, from getting too much medication, at once, it is highly unlikely that your doctor is going to give ... ...

white ## No such thing, are you referring to Oxycodone? Or Morphine? Either way, you have not provided enough information, do you know how many pills there are that are white? There are no proprietary guidelines in the pharmaceutical industry that states all pills with the same ingredient must be the same color, size and/or shape. These are entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer. And whether you are talking about Oxycodone or Morphine, or something else, there are many of them that are white, all of differing doses and forms. ## oxymorphine is a pill, it was recently fda approved..3x stronger then morphine ## oxymorphine is very real, and very strong, I, myself have lupis, and have taken oxymorphine 10 mg, BUT... it was not white, it was peach, also very effective. ## i th... ...

Oxycodone?MS Contin
OXYCODONE/APAP 5/325MG TAB and MORPHINE 15MG ER TAB (MALL-8315) but I have been on this same very medication for years on and off but for the last year and a half straight and it is no longer working how they should. How do I ask my doctor to raise the dosage without her thinking i'm an addict or something ## You should just honestly tell her that you've been taking them as prescribed, but are having more pain than usual. It is perfectly normal for your body to get used to the dosage you're taking of any medication that you've been taking for a long time and for it to no longer work as well. Any good doctor should be well aware of this and should expect it to eventually happen. Learn more Percocet details here. Learn more Morphine details here. Is there anything else I c... ...

I JUST WANT TO STOP THE NASUEA. STRENGTH NO PROBLEM. JUST NAUSUEA. 30 MG. IS THERE A DEFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TO. MORPHINE 30. & PURE OXYCODONE 30 MG. THANKS ANYBODY. ## Oxycodone and Morphine are similar drugs used for pain control. It all depends on how each person tolerates it. Morphine often makes people sick and nauseaus and vomit. Oxycodone on the other hand may not. Morphine makes me sick and oxycodone doesnt at all. I think it works better too.

Morphine Cr 30mg
I have been on percocet for about six years, now they want to transicion me to morphine sulfate(ms contin) 30mg, so the pain management doctor wants me to tae both until they can remove me from percocet.... to be onest with you I am afraid, can anyone give me more info.....Thanks ## Transitioning from one narcotic medication to another is usually not a problem, as long as your are given an equivalent dosage of the new one. 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... ...

oxycodone what's in it??
Is there codein in Oxycodone?? ## No! The active ingredient in Oxycodone is Oxycodone. It is a narcotic, however, it can cause reactions in people who are allergic to Codeine. ## oxycodone is a opiod pain reliever made of thesbian and codien which come or made out of the root of the poppy plant and man made compounds similiar to herion variety. PS I'm not the worlds greatest speller , but I took this out of the PDR,R.M. , NJ ## Oxycodone has nothing to do with codeine. It is actually derived from morphine. Codeine is an anti-tussive and has very little analgesic effects. ## ray. i have ben taking oxycodone for 10yrs i have bad back pine i dont like tham but want can do i do. ## Has anybody heard of oxycodein, is it the same as oxycodone?

oxycodone 3 40 mg a day
I get prescribed three 40 m a day of oxycontin for chronic back pain. Is there anyone out there who gets a simular prescription and takes other pain meds? If so what other pain meds do you take? ## a lot of people i know get roxicodones for breakthru pain with oxycontin as their regular maintenance pain med. I do. ## That is correct, many chronic pain patients or those suffering from severe pain due to an injury, get an additional regular release or immediate release medication to help bring their pain under control faster, while waiting for their main medication to kick in. It is usually a lower dose and can be of the same or a different narcotic. Roxicodone is a regular release medication that also contains Oxycodone, which is also available in an instant release formulation. Morphine... ...

Oxycodone vs ms contin
I have a spondylolisthesis at L-5. My pain management doctor wants to switch me from 10/325 Oxycodone to ms contin. How much ms contin would give me the same pain relief? ## Hello Bob! How are you doing? You need 1.5mgs of Morphine (MS Contin) for each 1mg of Oxycodone, so 15mgs is equal to each 10mgs and so on. 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.

Narcotic LEAST likely to harm the liver? Morphine?
Of all the narcotic pain meds, is Morphine the LEAST likely to affect the liver in a negative way? If not Morphine then which of this type and class of drug is the least toxic to the liver? ## Hello, Keikeeo! How are you? Most medications are processed through the liver and carry the same risks of harm, as long as they don't contain Acetaminophen. Thus, along with Morphine, other options can include Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone. 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.

Oxycontin Vs Morphine
I was taking 4 80 mg oxys daily my doc put me on 2 100 mg teva morphines will it help the same and will i go through withdraw thank you ## There may be some issues here, because the Oxycodone is actually 1 and a half time stronger than the Morphine, so you'd need 120mgs of Morphine to equal each 80mg dose you were taking of the Oxycodone. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Learn more Morphine details here. Why did he change your medication? ## Pain Meds 101: For chronic pain management...the best result is almost always a long acting med (OxyCONTIN (currently no generic so $$$), Morphine Sulfate E/R extended release, Opana (not my particular fave), Fentanyl Patches and Exalgo). Only the latter are taken 1x per day..the others are SUPPOSED to be 12 hr meds to be taken 2x a day but mo... ...

15mg oxycodonr and 15mg morphine taken together
I have been taking 30mg of oxycodone 4 times a day for two years for my broken back. Just need to know if taking 15mg of oxycodone and 15mg morphine sulfate is save and if it would just increase the oxycodone feeling. Please help can find answer anywhere. Thankyou ## Trying to increase the Oxycodone 'feeling is what often leads to addiction and you should really watch that habit. For pain relief, Morphine is effective, however, it is not as strong as Oxycodone. It can, however, cause the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.
