How strong is a 15 mg ER morphine vs 30mg oxycodone

I was taking 30mg oxycodone and the doctor switched to 15 mg Morphine ER and 15mg oxycodone and the pain is the worst it's been in the last 8 months. Am i going crazy or is it possible that the morphine does nothing for me. And if so I can't see the doctor for another 7 days ## 15mg er morphine is the least amount available in the er class of pain meds, er stands for extended release, this means that basically you are receiving 15 mg per 6 hrs, over a 12 hr period. and obviously you receive half of the dose you were getting with oxycodone. long story short, you Dr.isn't doing you any favors, only reducing your pain meds and increasing your pain!, 15 mg er morph doesn't do much at all! ## Morphine when taken by mouth is super weak. I am suprised you didnt have some feelin...

Morphine Sulfate ER 15 mg nausea

Has anyone out there taken this drug twice a day and had persistent nausea??? I thought I'd adjust to the nausea, but it's persistent. Anyone got any advice for me to help with this persistent nausea.? I'm also weak and sleepy. ## Hello Betty, According to the [1] NIH, nausea and vomiting is the most common side effect of this medication, greater than 10% of users who administered this medication experienced these adverse reactions. Good news is other users who have taken this medication say that it gets better with time, but the bad news is I couldn't find any medical documentation that states how long on average this time frame is. I feel like if you have these symptoms so often that it's become a problem for your way of life it would be best to discuss it with you...

is 15 mg morphine stronger than oxycodone

My pain specialist had me on 40 mg Opana ER and 15 mg Morphine Sulfate IR for 8 years. I had to find another doctor and starting next week I will be taking 30 mg Oxymorphone ER every 12 hours and 10 mg Oxycodone IR up to 3 per day. I have been out of my break thru pain med for 2 days now and my pain level averages 9 to 10 every day so I have taken 5 mg valium, Tylenol #3 with codine and a baclofen to stop me from going into withdrawal. What else can I do until my insurance co. gives their OK, ## Re: "Is morphine stronger than oxycodone" - I feel that answers to this question may be highly opinionated according to each individual as well as several underlying factors, including but not limited to: the binders/fillers in each respective tablet that may affect bioavailability; gene...

I can't take NSAIDs anymore. I am allowed only 15mg morphine 3x per day, short acting. I am 65 yrs.old.

New pain medication laws dictating to doctors that they cannot prescribe anything equivalent 120 mg of morphine or higher a day per patient

I was told Friday by my Pain Management Doctor at my monthly appointment that the DEA was implementing a new law dictating to doctors on how much pain medication they could prescribe per patient per day. It could be equal to no more than 120 mg of Morphine per day per patient and they had to comply within 3 months for all of their patients. I am trying to find out as much information on this as possible. I don't know if my Pain Management Doctor is stating fact or if he is just running scared and if he is stating fact, I don't know if this is federal or state (Alabama) mandated. I spoke directly with the Southeastern division of the DEA in Atlanta this morning and they are not aware of any law of this nature coming into effect and I also contacted another pain clinic locally tha...

Morphine Sulfate 15mg

I have chronic back pain and nerve damage to my right side due to a car accident, The neuroligist said the damage is equal to being dropped 7 stories on my left side. Now he is prescribing Morphine Sulfate 15mg and I am worried about the addiction versuses pain relief ## I have been on Morphind sulfate for approx. 3 months now twice daily for back, hip and hand pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. It has helped my back and hip pain but not the hand. My biggest problem is that this drug is like swallowing cement, it is terribly constipating. I stopped it for several days just to see if I was, indeed, becoming addicted and the awnser is no. My physical therapist and other nurses have told me not to worry as long as I was in pain I would not become addicted. But of course we are all different...

Light Blue Oblong Pill C25

I've found a light blue, oblong, fairly large (approx 20mm wide) pill. C25 embossed on one side, and a line dividing it in two on the other side. ## what is a blue tablet c25 indicated for ## Yeah I'm having trouble finding a definite match on this one as well. Can you tell me what country you are from? That might help to narrow some things down. For example, usually tablets within the USA are easier to pin down because their markings are regulated. There is also a chance that this one could either be a really new marking, an over the counter product, or a prescription med outside the USA. Are there any other details which you could share? Packaging? Manufacturer? ## i am in south africa ## Hi Roy, I'm in south africa. And don't have the packaging as it was left in my lo...

I Am Taking Morphine Sulfate Er 30 Mg Twice A Day And Also Imm Rel 15mg

I am taking morphine sulfate er 30mg tablets twice a day and also taking morphine sulfate imm rel 15mg once, sometimes twice a day. Finances won't allow me to get the morphine er at this time. Question: what is dosage of morphine imm per day without morphine er for 5 or 6 day until I can get the morphine er? ## They are both Morphine, so the dosage would be the same, however, the problem you are going to run into is that it is not going to last as long and since it is being released into your body much faster, this will potentiate the side effects, such as the nausea, dizziness and constipation that it can cause. Have you consulted with your doctor? You should really do so, before you try anything of this nature. It would probably work better for managing your pain to take a lower d...

Strength Comparison

I just want to know if 12mg of hydromorph contin is stronger or weaker than morphine 200mg. Is hydromorph contin a strong opioid just in general? ## Hello, Annabelle! How are you? Each 12mgs of Hydromorphone is equal to 48mgs of Morphine, so the Hydromorphine is stronger, by a ratio of 1 to 4, each 1mg of it is equal to 4mgs of Morphine. The U.S. FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is hydromorphine clear colored as well? Out of curiosity not for use.

pain management clinic that accepts Medicaid in houston, tx area

Doctors thar accept medicaid in houston, tx area that prescribe oxy and morphine ## Do they really accept Medicaid? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such medications on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? ## There are no new regulations that state you must see a Pain Management Dr for chronic pain. Although it may be very difficult to find a pcp who will treat a new p...

substitute morphine sulfate for oxycontin

Hello: So I just got something from my insurance company telling me they no longer will pay for oxy 20 or the generic..which is off the market anyway. The substitute is morphine sulfate I believe..that's what they are covering. How much of this do I need to equal one 20mg? I take 3 20's per day.. Thanks for any help I can get.. ## Oxycodone is 1.5 times stronger than Morphine, so your daily dose would need to be 90mgs of Morphine to be equivalent, so on the same dosing schedule, you would take 30mgs of the Morphine, 3 times a day. Are there any questions or comments? ## Hi Ms. Verwon, I learn something new from you all of the time. I was under the impression that Morphine was much stronger than Oxycodone. No wonder that when my doctor changed my meds from 5m percocet to 25m morp...

Just prescribed morphine sulfate 15mg er. I've only ever taken vicoden, Percocet, hyrocodone. What should I expect? nervous...

I was recently prescribed morphine sulfate 15mg er, for fibromyalgia. I've only ever taken Percocet, vicoden, or hydrocodone. I'm nervous as to how I will feel. ## Hello, Vik! How are you? This dose of Morphine is actually comparable to a 10/325mg Percocet, so it will probably affect you very similarly to that. 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. I'd just suggest that you make sure you aren't driving, for the first few days, until your sure how its going to affect you. Morphine also has the propensity to make people very sleepy, so you may find yourself needing to nap. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello, I saw your post, I was...

i live in indiana and am and can't fill it - every pharmacy i call is out of stock. i have called walgreens, CVS, wal-mart, meier, and grocer pharmacies - no on has morphine ER 30 mg. there are several other recent posts stating the same problem. something is most definitely going on, just don't know what. i NEED this medication NOW. ## Hello, Texiana! How are you? The problem here is caused by you calling the pharmacies. Since they have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a legitimate customer with a need, or a potential thief, they will just tell you that they don't carry it or have it in stock. Morphine is a controlled substance and pharmacies have been robbed over it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side...

Taking Oxycodone to quit alcohol and morphine addiction?

I recently found out that my girlfriend has relapsed with her alcohol addiction. I also found that she has been taking 15mg Morphine ER release 3-4 times a day to help her not want the booze. She has admitted that she now has an issue with the pills but is not drinking. Her Dr has now given her 10mg Oxycodone IR and she tells me that she is taking that to get off of the Morphine. This past week she has had severe mood swings, has had a headache every day this week, and has told me she has not had a pill in two days. I need help understanding what is happening here. Am I being lied to and her addiction is taking a turn for the worse or is she really doing what she says she is? ## She's lying to you. Oxycodone is much stronger than morphine, trust me, I'm prescribed both of them e...
