Was taking perc5-325 for 4 yrs every 12 hrs. Got to the point it wasn't working for me animore .now I'm on ms 15mg twice a day .any suggestions on this pill .kinda a nervous. Thank you. ## Hello, Mariah! How are you? MS Contin contains the active ingredient Morphine. The FDA classifies it as 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. It would basically be equivalent to taking a 10/325mg Percocet every 12 hours, however, the MS Contin is time released, so you may get better pain control with it. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

how long does morphine take to alleviate pain
2 Replies RSS
Hi all, I need some help. I was taking 2 - 5mg percs a day for my fibromyalgia, unfortunately I have now developed two tumours and a cyst on my hip which cause excruciating pain. My doctor tried me on a gamut of anti-inflammatories but due to my colitis those were not tolerated, she also tried a couple other pain meds, those and the 5mg percs were not cutting through the pain. She just gave me 5mg morphine sulphate 4 x day until my mri and surgery. I have taken one morphine pill about a half an hour ago and am still in the same amount of pain. How long does the morphine take to work? If the morphine doesn't work, is there anything I can suggest other than percs? I worry that I will look like I am drug seeking but I cannot function at all with the pain and haven't gotten much sle... ...

how long for iv morphine to wear off
1 Reply RSS
They gave my mom 4mg of morphine in her iv. How long do the effects last, ## Hi jen, According to, morphine is said to have a short half-life of 1.5 to 7 hours. They go on to note that close to ninety percent of a single morphine dose is excreted through urine within 72 hours. However, on the contrary, a different report coming from states that morphine has a "plasma" (blood) half-life of 2.5 to 3.0 hours. So when it comes to IV administration, this is probably the half-life I'd refer to for a more accurate estimate. Though this is mostly speculative, it's been thought that after 3 half-life's, a medication like this is typically out of your body / no longer working to relieve pain. There are also other important factors that can determine how long ... ...

I got an inj. of morphine in my leg yesterday, as I suffer from chronic back pain. My dr gave me the inj. around 12:40pm yesterday after lunch, and I'm wondering how long it lasts, as it did help, and this morning I was a bit spaced out. So is that inj. still working to control the pain? ## Hello, Tweeter! How are you? Generally, it only last a few hours, but the side effects may linger longer, which could explain why you were feeling spaced out.

And yes, it may be best to speak to your doctor about exploring other options, such as raising your dosage, or trying a different medication.

how long after taking suboxone can you take morphine
8 Replies RSS
I took 16 mg of syboxone at 4am Saturday morning and got my morphine filled now. Is it safe to take it after 16 hours. ## Hello, Scott! How are you? No, the Naloxone in the Suboxone will prevent the Morphine from having any effect, you usually need to wait at least 72 hours, before other narcotics will work, again, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA classifies this medication as 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.

I have sciatic nerve damage as well as degenerating discs among some other issues. I went two weeks without working because of being stubborn and not getting checked. After 4 doctors i finally found one that knew whatbhe was talking about. No i didnt diagnose myself either. Seemed no matter what one doctor would do nothing would help. After a few visits i changed doctors. As soon as i told my current doctor what was going on he fidnt even hesitate. Looked at me and told me what was wrong then started ordering xrays and tests. Morphine was helping at first and after a few adjustments because it seemed to not be helping, he put me on dilaudin or how ever you spell it. The down fall is he is requesting i talk to a surgeon.

My Pain Mgt doc made a med change about 3 wks ago. I was one taking Oxycodone 15 MG tablets, but I was still having a LOT of breakthrough pain. As of 3 wks ago, my doc ADDED Morphine Sulf 15 MG's SRT. The combination of the two meds appears to be working but there are still some minor pain issues. I spoke with my doc the other day and we will talk again on Feb 2nd. He told me he thinks going to the 15 MG Morphine Sulf every 8 hrs, vs 12 hrs will help.

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as constipation, dry mouth, headache, nausea, and dizziness.

How do I stop morphine patch?

I've been on a fen patch for five years due to Pernicious Anemia and nerve damage amongst other things. No other pain relief have worked and I can't absorb through the stomach so need it through the skin. Its been gradually raised and now I an bear it.

I'm thinking I might start to feel more normal if I stop the patches.I'm fed up of the horror nightmares too and forebodings. I want to switch pain killers to a more bearable one if possible and I don't want to suffer too badly while withdrawal which to be honest, is really scaring me.

I have a morphine infusion pump that releases 21.474 mg daily continuous flow plus I can give myself a bolus of 1.50 mg up to 10 x a day making my daily level release of morphine 35.886/day continuous flow. I am so tired all the time. My doctor prescribed D-amphetamine salts XR 25 mg - 2 x/day but because (i've been taking this for a few years at slowly increased doses to get where I am now) they were a generic and did not work I asked him and my insurance company approved the change, he put me on 20 MG IR 2x/day brand name by Teva.

Does Oxycodone Have Morphine In It?
2 Replies RSS
I've read no, but that your liver metabolizes it as morphine? Bottom line - does it contain morphine and what is the difference between contain and metabolize as?? ## No, it does not contain Morphine, Oxycodone contains Oxycodone, a different type of narcotic opiate. Some of the metabolites are similar, but not the same and lab work will be able to distinguish the difference. As a narcotic, it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. What it contains would be the active ingredient, the metabolites are what appears on lab work after it has been processed through the body. Are there any other questions? ## I am an elderly male , 2 years ago I had a fall and badly fractured my neck after my operation I was told for chronic pain to take a 5mg Edone... ...

How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. He might be creating part of the problem himself, if he's calling doctors or going to appointments and asking them to prescribe this medication.

What he needs to do is set up an appointment with a pain management specialist and make sure that they g... ...

I take 145mg of methadone daily .my question is this.i just took 60mg of morphine will i feel it i do no other drugs. this is the first time ive used anything but methadone in 2 years ## Unfortunately, in any medical situation, a patient has to be their own best advocate. Doctors often prescribe medications according to their experience with how well something has worked for other patients. There really isn't a direct answer to your question, as no one can tell you how you would react to Morphine. Since medications can affect everyone differently, some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it doesn't work for. I do know based on research that Methadone is considered to be 3-4 times stronger than oral Morphine (oxymorphone). And given the high dose of... ...

How are you? Fentanyl is the strongest available, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Your doctor will most likely have you start at the 25mcgs or 50mcgs dosage, since it's so potent to see how it works for you.
