New Extended Release Morphine?

Sam Says:

Since MS Contin is now made by Rhodes, I have heard there is a new brand name ER Morphine. Is anyone familiar with this?

The Morphine ER is not a new brand, that is actually the generic, it has been available for years.

The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

The original name brand, MS Contin, was manufactured by Purdue Pharma. There is a generic available from Rhodes.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi Verwon,

Rhodes, I know is a generic company ran by Purdue, also maker of Oxycontin, they just switched their MS Contin to Rhodes, who makes very weak generic meds. Do you know if this MS Contin, now made by Rhodes has the same quality as it did when made by Purdue?

My sister is taking a new time release morphine, which is supposed to be tamper resistant. It is called Arymo ER. She is used to taking MS Contin, which she says works a lot better. I don't see it mentioned anywhere on this site. Any info?
