Morphine is a narcotic analgesic.

The strength varies, depending on what formulation you are asking about.

For instance the extended release tablets are available in strengths of 15mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg.

The regular release tablets come in 10mg, 15mg and 30mg.

What specific type are you asking about?

I am currently taking 360 mg. of morphine sulfate CR per day, (2-60 mg. tablets, 3x a day) and 45 mg. of Oxycodone IMM for breakthrough pain (1-15.mg tablet, 3x a day) My new Pain doctor switched me to 1-60 mg. tablet of Kadian CR and up to 90 mg. of oxycodone IMM (1-2 tablets of oxycodone IMM 15 mg. 3 x a day) for breathrough pain.Isn't Kadian CR the same as morphine sulfate CR? I'm afraid I'll go into withdrawl if I begin taking the Kadian CR. Or, is the extra amount of breakthrough medicine going to make up the difference? Because the pharmacy was out of 60 mg. tablets of morphine sulfate, my PCP wrote my last prescription for 4-30 mg. tablets of Morphine sulfate ER, 3 x a day. I'm wondering if my new Pain Dr. saw the 30mg. tablets on the list of medicines I am currently taking, and thought I was taking less than I am. Should I call him?

My God. Are you terminal or something? I thought my 100mg mscontin (morphine er) was a lot. They're gonna find you like Heath Ledger, Whitney houston, Anna Nicole smith, etc. Dont get me wrong, not ur fault, but ur taking waaaaay too much narcotics. U should seriously cut back and find other pain mgmnt techniques. That's what I did.

My goodness,I have had chronic pain and occipitol nerve disease or 4 years and my Dr.has never let me have more than 15mg.of imm release morphine sulfate,2x daily,in all these years.Do you have a terminal disease to cause the need for such plentiful and addictive medications?I feel sad for you.hope you're better soon.

That's what I did! I don't want to be a vegetable,simply existing. I've always been very active ,and,the pain these past years ,as,I become older,in my 60's,has been very debilating.I struggle,but,I want to enjoy life,as much as possible each day.Blessings to this person.Shame on the Dr. for what his part in this.

I am finding it very hard to get my morphine script filled in San Diego? I got caught between current pharmacy closing and finding a new pharmacy locally to fill script. I used to have little to no problem. I live off state disability. I feel like cattle being herded to certain pharmacies and very few will stock narcotics or say they do. They say they can order the medication for me but we are allowed a small window of time between fills and a week without medication will be life threatening. I tried calling over the phone and the pharmacies say they can not tell me if it is in stock (pharmacy policy) due to criminals calling in advance to rob the pharmacies for highly sought after narcotics , scary indeed:( I used to get medication delivered via Hospital pharmacy now they have new owners and they no longer deliver, offering me one option only using retail pharmacies and I prefer medications being delivered. Due to the hospital pharmacy no longer delivering I had to find new pharmacy to fill script before I ran out. I had to drive one hour round trip being in poor health and waiting for one hour to have it filled? Why is it so hard all of a sudden? Is this a county wide issue or just CA state issue? thank u for listening;)

Tramadol is extremely addictive. I was addicted to Tramadol for 7 years and coming off of Tramadol is worse than coming off other opiates. It's the most horrible experience I've ever had.

It is actually against the law to drive while taking pain killers. It's called drugged driving, and you go to jail. It's no different in the laws eyes than drunk driving. I live in Michigan and am talking from personal experience.

That's easy to say. 100mg morphine twice a day and 15mg pills of oxy do not even put a dent in my pain or reflexes on the evaluations they've done. I've always been highly tolerant to pain meds. 2 years ago they gave me 20mg of oxy w/o Tylenol and 200 mg of morphine to breakthrough and keep me sane.

I have switched from Kadian to morphine in the past high dosage and absolutely no withdrawal. I was expecting it but to my surprise there was none. I am someone who has been taking pain meds for over 10 years so I know what you're thinking. :)

Kadian is morphine sulfate capsules with strengths of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 150 & 200mg's. It's a better range than MS Contin SR tablets of 15, 30, 60 & 90mg's. CR (controlled released), ER (extended release) SR (sustained release). Kadian works better, longer, it's 1/2 life is longer & it's the best morphine sulfate today. If one can't swallow tablets they're not to break them & with capsules one can open & take it w/ applesauce (Don't chew the beads). Kadian is 2 times daily due to it's strength instead of 3 times daily as MS Contin. All except, the 40mg's are generic & the mechanism is better than MS Contin SR (morphine sulfate sustained release). I don't think some of the comments understand you're on a long acting & short acting medication for breakthrough pain with their replies. I know it's been a long time since your post but, I hope you find this info helpful. I was switched from MS Contin 3 times daily to Kadian ER & oxycodone for many years. Kadian is far better than MS Contin & can be taken every 12 hours, not every 8 hours. I took Kadian 100mg's 2 times daily, then 80mg's 2 times daily, then 60mg's 2 times daily to be at 120mg daily with oxycodone IR's for breakthrough. Many physicians now write for 2 LA & 4 IR's daily so you should be better off with Kadian over MS Contin since they're both morphine sulfate. I was switched to a new LA with oxycodone for breakthrough in May due to the CDC guidelines.

That is just stupid what you just said. Saying this person's gonna wind up od'ing like Heath, Whitney ect.. By the way, they all od on purpose, meaning they all actually committed suicide. Something everyone here needs to know is that over time, meaning years, of taking narcotic pain killers, like opiates, we build up a tolerance. For example, after 13 years of taking mine, as prescribed, my body is up to 2 30mg Roxi's every 4 hours as needed and 1 80 mg oxycontin every 12 hours. That's what it takes now for me to deal with the debilitating pain I have. And not that it's any of your business but I hit a tree going 85 mph when I was 19. I'm blessed to be alive but the damage to my back and neck was done.
