Morphine Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family which is found naturally in a number of plants and animals, including humans.[6][8] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain.[6] It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain.[6] It is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labor.[6] It can be given by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by ...

oral vs intravenous

I take 2 60 mg morphine sulfate er 3 times a day. What would be the equivalent for IV usage. I will have a 3 port chest cath shortly and was wondering if IV pain medication would control pain better and if so at what dosage to achieve the same effect as what I am taking or even slightly stronger. ## Each 60mg oral dosage is equivalent to about 24mgs via IV, but you will not get the same time release as you do from the oral, so your doctor may need to adjust your dosage, and administration of it, accordingly. The FDA warns that Morphine carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. The pain control can be better for some people, via IV, but not everyone responds well to it. The only thing you can do ...

methadon and morphine

can methadon be taken with another pain pill ,ex. morphine ## Yes I have been on 150mg dose for about 6 years, I was admitted to the hospital for Pancreatitius and they gave me Haladol and Morphine for the pain, and I still took the Methadone each day. You can also take Hydrocodone, but be careful there are some pain pills that you can not take. ## Yes, Methadone can be taken with other analgesics, as long as your doctor approves, but it may negate the efficacy of some, especially depending on the dosage, and as was already stated, there are some it should not be taken with. The FDA warns that opioids carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, and constipation. Is there anything I can help with? ## Methadone is a me...

Canada Paregoric Purchase

I have ben using Paregoric for years abd it was taken off the American Market . I still am in need as it is the only thing that helps me. Where can I purchase it in Canada ## From what I could gather, The manufacturer "Ranbaxy" of India is the only source for this tincture of opium, but please correct me if I'm wrong. As another possible solution here in the U.S., there are specialized pharmacists called "compounding pharmacists" who know how to make things of this nature. If you have such a company in your area, I'd think it would be very simple for them to compound "tincture of opium" by merely diluting ordinary liquid morphine sulfate to the strength of the prepared tincture. Keep in mind that you'll want to make sure you find legal and legitimate ...

It is an opiate that is most commonly used to treat moderate to severe pain. It carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. As to proper disposal, you should never flush medications. The best method of disposal, ...

why does it say poison on the label of liquid morphine sulfate

It has poison listed on the label of my bottle of liquid morphine sulfate for intravenous use. It is an outdated bottle, but is it safe to use? ## First never use expired drugs! Secondly liquid morphine is deadly if taken or used improperly so why wouldn't it be considered a poison. ## Jeff is correct. Most medications are considered poisons, if used improperly, in excessive amounts, of by those who shouldn't be taking them. What precise markings are on the label are you talking about, though? Most pharmacies don't use one that just says poison. Morphine is an opiate, so it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

Light Blue Oblong Pill C25

I've found a light blue, oblong, fairly large (approx 20mm wide) pill. C25 embossed on one side, and a line dividing it in two on the other side. ## what is a blue tablet c25 indicated for ## Yeah I'm having trouble finding a definite match on this one as well. 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. There is also a chance that this one could either be a really new marking, an over the counter product, or a prescription med outside the USA. Are there any other details which you could share? Packaging? Manufacturer? ## i am in south africa ## Hi Roy, I'm in south africa. And don't have the packaging as it was left in my lo...

oxycotin cr 60 mg tablet VS 30mg. Morphine Sul ER

What is equal in mgs? I have been prescribed a 60 mg. of OxyCotin ER. Now the dr. is suggesting I use 30 mgs. of Morphine Sul ER. Can you give me the mgs. that equals the 60 mg.OxyCotin ER . What would the mg. difference be to get the same pain relieving results? It's not the dr.; it's the drug plan I have that is now demanding this be changed. Awaiting your comments! Eva ## Hello, Eva! How are you? Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so you'd actually need 90mgs of the Morphine to equal the same analgesic effect of 60mgs of Oxycontin. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## is there ...

white pill with crescent moon

I found a white pill with crescent moon on one side and 270 on the other in my teenage cousins room can anyone tell me what this is I can't pull it up on the net anywhere ## Hi turtle, Based on the description provided, I found a white round pill with 270 on one side and a half moon logo on the other to be a 15mg Morphine sulfate ER tablet. This medication is used for moderate to severe (chronic) pain. For verification, the pill itself is made by Actavis and carries a National Drug Code of 0228-4270-11 I hope this helps! ## So a pill with a crescent moon and 270 on one side IS morphine?? ## Are you completely sure that it is 15mg morphine? ## If the letter R is above the crescent and on the other side, the A and 270 are separated by a line, then it is Furusemide, a common water tabl...
