Oramorph Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family 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] It is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labor.[5] It can be given by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by injection under th...

Is it ok to use oramorph 3 months after opening

I take oramorph daily, I have a half used bottle of oramorph that has been open for over a year. It's still well within the use by date but the bottle says discard 3 months after opening. It seems a waste to throw it away, will this be OK to use? It's not dangerous is it? ## I'd like to know the same as you about the date. Ours is a year or more old and opened. I'd like to know if there would be problems taking it. Does the efficiently degrade or even make the mixture stronger. Thanks. ## If the meds were kept in the bottle, in a climate controlled house, then you're good to go. I have left pills in my glove box in the summertime and they got weaker and weaker because of the heat. As hard as it is the get pain meds these days, I would hang on to those, they will work...

i ve taken too much oramorph

On Tuesday night I was in a lot of pain and unable to sleep. I took too much of my oramorph. I was really disoriented and vomited. I slept all day yesterday and last night. Today I still feel really sleepy. My family will be angry with me if they knew. I'm bit in any danger am I? ## Oh dear last night I had same problem I suffer from piriformis and couldn't sleep , so rather than measuring out the morphine I took mouthful from the bottle, I've been sick can find no energy and slept all day so far ..i have sought medical advice I'm just about ok ..made me think twice about what I take I've ditched the morphine and feeling rather stupid

Nausea all of a sudden

I've been taking Oramorph for several weeks now with no problem, now all of a sudden, I've been feeling very nauseous. I haven't changed the dosage since I was advised to well over two weeks ago. I'm perplexed as to why it's happening all of a sudden. There have been no other changes in my life and I have a contraceptive implant so I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant. Any ideas? ## Hello, Charlotte! How are you? I am sorry about the nausea you're experiencing. It can sometimes take a few weeks for all side effects to manifest, after starting a medication. As listed by the U.S. FDA, you may also experience dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. The medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. Have you tried making sure not to take it on ...

Oramorph 10 Mg And Tramadol 100mg

on oramorph 10mg 4 times a day and tramadol 100mg 4 times a day still in pain are they cancelling each other out ## No, I was othe same recently and they will be augmenting each other not cancelli out. If you are still in pain, speak to your doctor about upping your morphine (you've already maxed the tramadol there) I'm on 30mg plus 100mg tramadol which is controlling my pain much better. ## How long have you been taking them? As George said, they shouldn't be canceling each other out, but it may be time for a dosage adjustment. There's also the possibility that one, or both just aren't the right medications to help you and you may need to try different ones. There is also an extended release Tramadol that is available in 200 and 300mg doses. ## If a may suggest perh...

Oramorph taste

Has anyone else noticed the taste change in Oramorph Oral 10mg/5ml? ## Yes, it tastes less sweet and stronger, it reminds me of alcohol (which I no longer drink, due to morphine) I am so scared I may accidentally take an overdose. I used to self harm and take various overdoses when younger, whilst drinking alcohol. Now I don't want to die, and panic I have taken too much. I now take 30mg MST every 12 hours and 30-40ml of Oramorph every 4 hours, when required. Sorry off topic a bit there, the flavour seems to linger in the mouth much longer too, unless you have some water or juice after to clear it. ## There are at least two flavours of oramorph, I've been using this product approx 5 years since I broke my back, my chemist switch between the two flavours on a regular basis, it is...

Efficacy of Oramorph after being open for 3 months

Can i take Oramorph that has been open for more than 3 months, but is still within its expiration date? I got it for my knee pains about a year ago and it just flared up again, but i don't have time to go back to the hospital as i have exams. ## I'd like to know the same as you about the date. Ours is a year or more old and opened. I'd like to know if there would be problems taking it. Does the efficiently degrade or even make the mixture stronger. Thanks.

liquid oramorph

I am on palexia/ tapentadol 500mg sr and 100mg ir as well as up to 50 mg of oramorph . I eventually get some pain relief after taken the total dose of oramorph which is 10mg every two hours. Instead of having to wait the 8-10 hours for the oramorph to kick in could i safely double or treble the dose of oramorph at the beginning of the evening when i take my first dose ## Hello, Geo! How are you? I'd not suggest changing your dosage, unless your doctor approves. These narcotics can cause depression of the central nervous system, which may result in lowered heart rate and blood pressure, so too high of a dose could put you in danger. 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 an...

how long does oramorph take to work and does it even work

My husband is in constant severe pain due to needing a new knee but he cant have one as he has too many other complications health wise. He's been prescribed oramorph but it's not doing anything, just making him feel sick and have stomach pains. ## It should start working withing a few minutes of taking it, it is an extended release form of Morphine. The NIH warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is he on any other medications? What other health issues does he have?

oramorph liquid

Hi, I'm in hospital at the moment and have been taken off morphine and I'm now on oramorph but it doesn't seem to be shifting the pains in my stomach I have said to the nurse but she is not for giving me it what could be the reason for this ## This medication also contains Morphine, so it should work just like the Morphine does. What dosage are they giving you? The NIH warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

oramorph- 15mg

biege tablet sp 782 ## The Oramorph with 782 on it has a number 53, not SP! The company that uses the SP logo does not list that they make any morphine tablets, they do many OTC products thought and there is no comprehensive listing of all of them. ## Another typo, I am doing great this morning, can tell I didn't sleep well. That should be a number 54, not 53, sorry. ## Im a methadone user (85mls) is 30ml of oramorph to much or not enough?
