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!

morphine sulfate vs er

For over 10 years, I took 820 mg. morphine sulfate ER daily to manage chronic pain, trigeminal neuralgy and osteomyelitis in my jaw...(yes, I know that is spelled wrong, but don't want to take the time to look it up right now) Anyhow, about 1 1/2 years ago I started tapering myself off of it, one, because of the costs...astronomical, ridiculous, really..and for the last 6 months or so have been taking either 15/30 mg. regular release morphine every 4 hours. When I called my doctor to get an appt. for refills, the soonest appt. is 17 days away and I've only got about 1 week of medication left. I still have 200 mg. ER morphine left, but I don't want to accidentally overdose...do I still have a higher tolerance from being on it for so many years? ## Old mom The best and safest ...

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.
