2014 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...

Doctors that prescribe morphine houston tx

Does anyone know a doctor in Houston tx that perscribe morphine please! ## Hello, Sandra! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, getting a referral from them will likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. ## Hi Sandra..I see a dr in Houston, Morphine is hard to get. You may want to try dilaudid instead. I know of one but you must be on the up and up, have mri's, xrays, past medication records from pharmacy and records from previous pain dr. get back with me if you meet this criteria ## Hi Ann, I don't meet that criteria really but I am 25, I have been seeing a regular doctor and all they can prescribe me is Norco...

Canada Paregoric Purchase

I have ben using Paregoric for years abd it was taken off the American Market . I still am in need as it is the only thing that helps me. Where can I purchase it in Canada ## From what I could gather, The manufacturer "Ranbaxy" of India is the only source for this tincture of opium, but please correct me if I'm wrong. As another possible solution here in the U.S., there are specialized pharmacists called "compounding pharmacists" who know how to make things of this nature. If you have such a company in your area, I'd think it would be very simple for them to compound "tincture of opium" by merely diluting ordinary liquid morphine sulfate to the strength of the prepared tincture. Keep in mind that you'll want to make sure you find legal and legitimate ...

yellow round pill with 271 and half moon

Yellow round pill with 271 on one side and half moon on the other. Found this while cleaning out a house and wondering what it is? ## Extended release morphine sulfate 30mg. They must be new. I can't find them anywhere. I just had a second back surgery, and I'd swear that these don't work as well. I was looking to see if the pharmacy made a mistake, but that is what they gave me this time. ## I have a yellow pills that have 271 round and the other side had a moon on it please help me what is this ## Unfortunately I haven't been able to verify whether or not these actually contain morphine sulfate 30mg. However, I do recall that Actavis Pharmaceuticals is known for putting a half moon logo on their tablets. So the description sounds to me like something they may have manu...

Questions about 30mg Roxy's

I've been on 5, 30mg of Roxy's daily for about 4 to 5 years now, the problem, I am getting worried the time is going to come where I can't get them. I keep hearing stories about shortage and the price doubled, the last 2 months. These meds work for me and I am able to have a fairly normal life. I am not able to work any longer (Master Cosmetologist), which I hate, but after 2 failed back surgery's, I feel lucky, that I can at least enjoy my Grandchildren and my 3 Maltese Pups. Is there a medication out there that works like the Roxy's but a different med. I have tried morphine and MS Cotten and they didn't work on my pain like the Roxy's. I go back to my Doctor next week and would love to change meds. Any suggestions are for sure appreciated. ## I sure would ...

Peach round pill 311 and half moon

Peach colored round tablet with 311 on one side & half moon on the other. Is this morphine 60mg er? Looking for generic 60 mg morphine er. The tablets mfg by Watson, Rhodes Pharmaceutical & Actavis do not work for me. I'm trying to help my pharmacist find something comparable in price. Endo has an oblong tablet with 60 on one side & E 655 on the other that works for me. Rhodes Pharmaceutical tablets are not consistent.

How many pills per day does 1 every 12 hours and 1 every 4 hours equal?

My husband has cancer stage 4. His Dr has prescribed him morphine sulfate 1 pill every 12 hrs & Oxycodone 1 pill every 4 hrs. How many pills should he be taking per day (in a 24 hr period) & how many pills of each should be prescribed for a month? ## I work in a pharmacy and we would calculate it as follows: Morphine - 1 every 12 hours for a total day supply of 2, quantity for a 30 day supply would be 60 Oxycodone - 1 every 4 hours for a total day supply of 6, quantity for a 30 day supply would be 180 ## Thank you for the clarification! ## My interpretation which is not official check w/your doctor - after all they scripted them 1 every 12 hours take one after getting up say you get up @ 7 take meds @ 8am then take another @ 8pm 4 hour say you sleep from midnite till 7 ..... one...

Rhodes 100mg Morphine Sulfate ER GARBAGE

Is it just me or has ANYONE else had an issue with Rhodes morphine not working!!?? I've tried a couple different ways to get the most out of these and no matter what I do it ultimately does nothing for my pain. I barely felt like I took some Aspirin or Ibuprofen!! Like REALLY WTF!!!!! It can't just be me I'd like to know if ANYONE else has had this problem. I can't be the only one. Now I remember back in the day I took 2 x 100mg RED Oblong ones and got great relief and that always stuck with me that when the time came and needed to be on a high dose that would be a go to. I've asked my pharmacy to obtain a different brand and they said that's all they could get and they were charging me 260 bucks for 30 of them. So after a few months of getting ripped off I went ...

morphine sulfate ER 30mg

Is this really good for my back? What else is it good for? What is the average price for a prescription to be filled? ## I can't really tell you if this will help you or not. Pain medications can affect everyone differently, whereas some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it just doesn't work for. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to actually try it. To answer your other question, Morphine is a narcotic pain reliever used to treat moderate to severe pain. I wouldn't suggest trying to use it for any other purpose outside of that. Did your doctor just give you a prescription for it without saying a word? ## I have stage 4 cancer I've been taking Vicodin 500 mg 6 times a day now I switch to 15 mg of morphine and I feel horrible don...

Does 30mg Of Morphine Sulfate Relieve More Pain Than 50mcg Fentanyl Patches

My pain Dr.had me on 30mg. of morphine sulfate 3 times per day & switched me to 50 mcg. Fentanyl patches at 1 every 3 days.The morphine was keeping me up at night & did'nt seem to ease the pain.Second day on the patch & it does'nt stop the pain either any suggestions will be truely appreciated..Thanx ## I don't have an exact answer to your question, since everyone responds differently to both of these medications (based on tolerance, etc). However, according to numerous articles, Fentanyl is said to be approximately 100 times more potent than Morphine, with 100 micrograms of Fentanyl approximately equivalent to 10 mg of Morphine in analgesic activity (or in regards to pain relief). I hope this information helps! ## You need to give it a little time. I am on 75 ev...

Morphine and hallucinations?

I've been hospitalized 4 times between Feb./Mar. this year. I was taking morphine 15mg for maybe 2 weeks before this, I was having hallucinations each time. Doctors told me it was due to UTI s and any bacterial infections. I had 1 infection because of an IV in my leg. Can you explain to me if that's right or not? Thank you so much. ## My guess is that it’s more likely that you were hallucinating from the infections. It sounds like you were septic, (the infection had spread throughout your body), and quite seriously Ill from those infections. Morphine is quite often given in those situations because the patient can be in a great deal of pain. The morphine may have played a part in your hallucinations, but I’m betting it was more from your being so seriously ill. When ...

morphine to subutex

I have been on morphine for about a year taking 100mg a day. I got 4 subs. If I take those 4 sub's will I not go through withdrawals or should I brake them up in half to make it 8 days of half a sub a day. I'm out of money and can't go to a doctor. I want to end this nightmare. Can anyone help me through this. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? You can't take Subutex, until you are in full withdrawal, otherwise, it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. What dosage do you have? It's hard to provide you with more information, without the specific details. ## Thanks for the ...
