I have taken morphine ER 30mg for many years. I just received a different brand and the pill is much larger and does not work as well as the smaller pill I am use to. What is in the pills besides the morphine to make such a difference in size?

Hello, CJ! How are you?

The fillers that are used can be different, as well as what is used to make them time released.

I can't be more specific than that, without knowing the markings on the tablets in question. Can you please post back with these additional details? Then I can check for you.

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.

When a medication is created it is patented by a Pharmaceutical co. Everything else that is made by other co's after the original are called a generic medication. By law, generics are allowed to be altered up to 40% and still be called the same medication. They must be altered to some degree or they infringe on the patent. The manufacturers will tell you this 40% contains compounds and binding agents that are inert, however these inert binding compounds can have a synergistic effect (good or bad) with the active compounds. The original has always found the best binding agents which is why as a Master's Prepared & Certified Nurse Practitioner, and a pain patient myself, I always want the non generic medication when possible. In some cases, but not with MS04, you even have to change the dosage when you go to generics because they of such poor quality. For example, with some seizure medications you can't even switch the patient between the 2. If the pt. was originally put on one, they must stay with that drug manufacturer because you cannot titrate doses to match the non generic to the generic and vice versa. It is a shame the insurance companies in the U. S. are forcing us to take generics by allowing extreme price differences between the 2, and non generics remain inflated. Only a mass consumer retaliation can change this policy. Recently Tylenol was having trouble controlling their patented product because they were manufacturing it in a third world country. It was off the market and pharmacist weren't telling consumers why for fear of brand abandonment, (which is what I have done) If a patented drug can achieve quality control, magine what you are getting in these generics? There has been arsenic, rat poisoning, and other dangerous agents found in small amounts when generics are investigated and yet, how many times do you hear of these investigations? Hope I haven't scared you, but consumers need to be informed or nothing will change!!!
