Morphine Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family that is found naturally in a number of plants and animals, including humans.[7][9] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain.[7] It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain and is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction, kidney stones, and during labor.[7] Morphine can be administered by mouth, by injection into a mu...

surgery - can't take oral pain meds

I am to have back surgery and can't take oral pain meds. What will doctors give me that can be administered intravenously? I have a friend who is an RN that will administer it to me. Or I can take a suppository. What works for back pain that comes in either form? ## Has anyone been prescribed any other method of pain relief besides oral pain medication? How do you go about getting a doctor to prescribe pain medication that is not oral? Does the pain medication work as well? I am unable to tolerate oral pain medication and it makes me throw up and suffer stomach and bladder pain. It also affects my liver. I know it's not typical and most doctors are uncomfortable working outside of the box of their normal and typical routine. Has anyone had the same issue or been able to have sur...

Morphine 100 mg to Oxymorphone 30 mg conversion

I'm trying to find out how many 100mg ER Morphine sulfate pills are equal to 45 Oxymorphone 30mg ERs for the month. Can anyone help me with the math please? ## Sure - according to the Opioid equivalency table on Wikipedia, Oxymorphone is 3 x stronger than oral Morphine. So, in basic math terms, each dose of 30 mg Oxymorphone is equivalent to roughly 90 mg or Morphine (oral). So the # of tablets would be approximately the same, since it looks like your Morphine dose is high enough to equal the Oxymorphone dose if that makes sense. Hope this helps! ## So there is a shortage on ALL ER Oxymorphone as of Jan and Feb 2021. I live in Florida I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem in other states? ## To calculate the total daily dose: 1. Determine the total daily doses of cur...

morphine 60mg 3x a day to suboxone

I think it is a dam shame that there isn't concrete information about self detox.as far as morphine to suboxone my dr put me on oxy for a week and on subs after the week within a month I was off everything I started with a half of a strip of suboxone 2 weeks later a quarter and so on so maybe it was 6 weeks It's all about the money for pharmacy pain mgmt it's a shame but when you have chronic pain I guess your only option is to become an addict Find a good dr who will detox you I did detox but I'm back on pain Meds fetynal patch supposedly you build up a tolerance ## Unfortunately, there really isn't, and never will be, any definitive concrete self-detox instructions, because we are all different, so what works for one person, might not work for another. Fentanyl is ...

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...

Morphine Sulfate Ir 30 Mg

I have just received two scripts, one is Morphine Sulfate IR 30 MG and the is Morphine Sulfate SR 30 MG tablets. It doesn't say which one is the slow releasing and which one isn't. Can you please help me with this? ## I'm happy to help you! IR stands for immediate release and the SR stands for sustained release, so the IR is the fast one and the SR is your time released formulation. You can learn more Morphine details here. Since Morphine is a narcotic, it may be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Verwon - Is correct. IR is Immediate Release and SR or ER is Sustained Release or Extended Release. As I am sure you are aware, MORPHINE; in any form, can become very addicti...

what is a little round white pill with a line down the middle on one side and S4 over 733 on the other side

I was told this was a form of morphine for pain but I am not having any luck finding it on the internet. ## The pill you have is Morphine (15 mg). The S4 is actually 54, which can be misleading on many pills. 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. ## Are the morphine 15 mg addicting and are they dangerous if consuming 3 at a time ? ## I would have to say yes positively. ## Yes Morphine is highly addictive. 45mg of Morphine Sulphate is not really a high dose. If you've never taken opioid pain killers before it will be enough to make you very loopy and possibly sick to your stomach. It is important to understand that the bioavailability of th...

round light blue pill ## MORPHINE (MSIR(R)) relieves moderate to severe pain. Morphine may be used to control the pain following surgery, child birth, and other procedures. Morphine may also be used to treat pain associated with cancer, heart attacks, sickle cell disease and other medical conditions. Do not share this medicine with anyone else.

can you half a 30 mg morphine er without problems

I'm taking norco 10 mg 3 x day. I was taking 5 mg oxycodone along with the Norco at different times. I was starting to get no pain relief. My doctor recently changed me to 15 mg ir morphine tabs and now because it was not relieving the pain increased it to 30 mg er morphine taking it every 12 hrs. It's making me sick and not relieving the pain. Can I cut the er morphine pills in half safely. I'm still taking the Norco as needed. I've been taking pain Meds for 7 yrs for chronic pain and I can't go on like this. ## No, the ER means that they are time released, so it is not safe to cut or break them. Doing so could cause you to get too much of the medication at once, which creates the risk of overdose. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it ha...

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...
