Morphine Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate type which is found naturally in a number of plants and animals.[5][7] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain.[5] It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain.[5] Morphine is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labour.[5] It can be given by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by injecting under the skin, intravenously, into the space around the spinal cord, or rectally.[...

New pain medication laws dictating to doctors that they cannot prescribe anything equivalent 120 mg of morphine or higher a day per patient
667 Replies RSS
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...

54 733 white pill extended or no?
42 Replies RSS
I have small white pill with 54 733. I know it's Morphine but is it extended release or immediate? And can I break in half or even fourths? In a lot of pain right now and I am at work. Need some relief. Thank you!! ## The pill you have is Morphine sulfate (15 mg); NOT an extended release version. To answer your other question, yes, you can break this pill in half, as it has a score line. You can view a more detailed description of Morphine, by clicking on the link below... If you have any more questions or comments to add, please post back so I can further assist you. ## Hi Cookie, If the pill is a small round white pill with the numbers 54 733 it is an immediate release not extended. The extended release morphine are dark purple. Either way if you have a lot of pain it will just ta...

Which Is Stronger: 30 Mg Of Morphine Sulphate Er Or 10 Methadone
117 Replies RSS
I am in a confusing debate with my ex husband: Which is stronger, 30 mg of morphine sulfate E.R or 10 mg of methadone? ## Methadone is stronger than Morphine, just as an example, if you were taking the 30mgs of Morphine, the equivalent dosage of Methadone would only be 3mgs, so it's a roughly 1mg to 10mg ratio. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on Methadone tablets for 13 years with a NY pain mgmt doctor who worked alongside an Orthopedic surgeon who originally diagnosed my lumbar-sacral pain from DDD (L5/S1) and nerve damage in my legs, plus osteoarthritis in hips and spine. My Methadone dose began at 30mg/day, and at it's highest 10 yrs later, was on 150mg/day. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009, and lost 130 lbs by 2010. My Methadone dosage was able to be bro...

Morphine Sulfate - unable to find pharmacy to fill Rx
36 Replies RSS
Have had a Morphine Sulfate 30mg Rx from my Doc in Orlando since moving to Sarasota / Lakewood Ranch area Jan 30. NO CVS, NO Walmart has had this med. All say it is out of stock or haven't carried it for a long time. The Rx expires after 6 months. Please can you help give info to explain why pharmacies here don't have a medicine for my chronic condition? Orlando is 2.5+ hours away...too far for my spouse to go for an Rx.. Thank you. We are confused. ## It is most likely due to the fact that the prescribing doctor is in Orlando and you're trying to get it filled in a different area. Learn more Morphine details here. There have been a lot of problems on the east coast, due to improper filling, improper or over prescribing, pharmacies stocking and filling more than they are all...

My tolerance is extremely high, so to have the meds actually work on the pain i'm needing a lot more than most.

how many mg of morphine is equal to oxycodone
12 Replies RSS
Thirty mg morphine equals how many mg oxycodone? ## i have taken both within the last couple of months… i wouldn't say they are "equivalent" or use the word "equal" per se - but in my experience, they are interchangeable, & the doctor who prescribed both of them had prescribed 30mg of oxycodone and 30mg of morphine…. and i used them at the same dose and frequency…. imo, they are pretty similar… although the morphine is more sedating than the oxycodone….. ## Hi Jerry, According to an equianalgesic (opioid) chart from Stanford, Oxycodone is said to be about 1 1/2 times more potent than Morphine on a milligram to milligram basis. They conclude that 120 mg of oral Oxycodone is similar to taking 180 mg of oral Morphine. However, this is n...

2 morphine er 15mg 4 hydrocodone 10 325 per day
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking 5 hydrocodone 10 / 325 mg for about 8 years, my body has adjusted to this so it has not been working as well as it used to. My doctor has now prescribed me morphine ER 15 mg every 12 hours and hydrocodone 10 / 325 4 times a day. Will this be a better pain relief and do you know of any problems with taking both of these together at this dosage? My pharmacist said to make sure I take the hydrocodone at least two hours before or after I take a morphine, does anyone have any input on this thank you I appreciate any responses I can get ## If you are opiate tolerant and they have been prescribed by the same doctor, there shouldn't be any problem. But your doctor is always the best judge on that. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming ...

Morphine Sulfate Is Keeping Me Awake..."HELP"!
15 Replies RSS
I used to take Oxycodone 15mgs, 5X's a day. After 5 or so years, they stopped working on my pain. My pain management doctor put me on Morphine Sulfate IR 30mgs, 4X's a day. They work great. One problem, I'm up on and off all night. I'm assuming it's the MS IR 30's because I never had a problem with sleep. Does anyone know what I can do to get at least a few hours of straight sleep? ## Maybe try an over the counter sleep aid like zzzquil, unisom, etc or you could try some melatonin and see if that helps. Hope you find something that works for you! If you do could you post back with what you used to woo get some sleep? Best of luck on getting the sleep you need! ## Thanks Jason. I'll get some Melatonin tomorrow. It's funny....I first get sleepy, fall asleep...

morphine to methadone
4 Replies RSS
I am currently on 54 ml. of Ordine 10, 150 mg Fentanyl patch, and 80 mg Targin, equivalent to about 1,200 mg of morphine a day. My pain specialist wants me to change to methadone or suboxone. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance. ## Hello, Allan! How are you? Most people have said that Suboxone didn't do much for their pain, so if you need pain relief, you might be better off with the Methadone. I've never taken either one myself, I am just stating what I've learned from other posters on this site. 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. Does anyone else have any advice to offer? ## I really strongly suggest having nothing to do with Methadone...
