30mg morphine vs oxycodone
2 Replies RSS
I was on 5 30mg of oxycodone ir after doing some reading after you have more than 120mg in your system the rest is not helping you it's just loading your system up and your asking for long term problems my dr. Has since put me on 3 30mg oxycodone and one 30mg morphine extended release for nighttime and that seems to be the majic for me it helps the hard pain during the day and at night lets your system calm down when I'm sleeping . ## even though oxycodone is 1.5 x stronger than morphine, if you take an equivalent dose of mophine sulfate (90 m. vs. 60 oxy), will you still develop the same tolerance/addiction/dependency from the morphine as from the oxycodone? ## Great Gw! I am very glad that you found a combination that works so well for you. And yes, potentialaddict, you would ... ...

morphine sulf er and oxycodone together
3 Replies RSS
What reason would a doctor prescribe morphine sulfate er and oxycontin ir at the same time? ## Hello, Cyn! How are you? To try to help someone get better pain control. The Morphine ER is a time released medication and the OxyIR is an instant release medication, it's usually taken for breakthrough pain that the time released medication doesn't always control. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Because one is long extended release..the other I.m. immediately release.. One to help with break through the other to carry u through ## did you just get done with a car c... ...

Morphine 15 Mg vs Oxycodone 30mg
14 Replies RSS
Does anyone know if 2 15mg morphine tabs would be equal to 1 30mg oxycodone. Both are immediate release. I have been on the 30's but due to my upcoming surgery my Dr. feels that I need stronger pain med's. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. ## Actually, the Oxycodone is one and a half time stronger than Morphine, so to equal 30mgs of the Oxycodone would require 45mgs of the Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Could u tell me if oxycodone ir and morphine ir appear as the same thing on a drug panel? ## How long does 15mg morphine stay in sysyem ## Lord please let those that abuse their pills or medications be taken off their meds.

Oxycodone and morphine sulfate
1 Reply RSS
1. I now take15 mg morphine sulfate TID which makes me sleepy and does not handle my pain, plus up to 10/325 oxycodone 4xday to handle pain. (orig. on 30 mg morphine sulfate + oxy, and reduced at my request due to sleepiness) 2. 10/325 mg oxycodone taken alone 4xday is effective 80 or so % of the time in treating my pain, and does not cause sleepiness. Why the difference? My pain mgmnt physician wants me to rely more on the morphine sulfate. Thank you so much. ## While they are both narcotics, their base chemical structure is different and may affect any given person differently. I had the same problem with Morphine, I could barely ever stay awake, while taking it, however, Oxycodone makes me a bit drowsy, but works much better for me. The FDA warns that narcotic pain medications carry ... ...

Oxycodone and morphine in one pill?
3 Replies RSS
I came across a pill that was supposed to have 15mg oxycodone and 15mg morphine in same pill. It is round white with 262 on one side, and what looks like a crescent moon design or whatever on the other side. What is it, and is the above pill even manufactured? ## There is no such combination pill in the U.S. What your tablet contains is 15mgs of Oxymorphone, it is not a combination of both, but it is a narcotic analgesic. Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and dry mouth. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ## Its actually called oxymorphone is the name of it. ## Umm I'm a little late but oxymorphone contained both oxycodone and morphine!!!

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 many mg of morphine is equal to oxycodone
14 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... ...

I am allergic to oxycodone and morphine. Could Indomethacin be a better alternative and will I have the same results since I know I am not allergic to this? ## The FDA classifies Indomethacin as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it is not as potent as opiates, but it is effective at helping with pain in some people that take it. Its typical side effects may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. Have you tried taking it, yet? If so, is it helping? ...

I can't stop sleeping and being really dizzy I take lyrica 75mg twice a day and Percocet 5mg 4 times a day and morphine 15mg 3 times a day and 30mg twice a day.

It ruined my life for the past seven years. The Lyrica didn't take me long to realize how bad that stuff is. I only took it for several months on a couple of occassions.

This all seems to have started around the same time Darvon was pulled from the shelves with nothing to replace it. (Darvon & Tramadol combined was finding some success in providing relief for fybromyalgia) I gave up on trying to get Walgreens to fill prescriptions for Oxycodone/Oxycontin. After trying Walmart, several Publix, CVS & most of the Walgreens in my area, I am trying the Morphine based product MS Contin instead. I had an allergic reaction to the generic brand and am now on day 2 of the manufactor's and am experiencing similar problems. The conversion formula from Oxycodone to Morphine isn't reliable either.

I have been on oxycodone 10 mg 4 times a day for few yrs due to back surgery and no relief and now my dr changed oxycode same dosage to 3 times a day and added morphine 15 mg sulfate tabs 4 times a day. My question is.... Is it safe to take both and that many a day since i have never been on morphine before?

If I Normally Take 40mg Of Oxycodone What Would Be The Equivalant Dose Morphine Ir
2 Replies RSS
what is the eqivalent dosage of morphine vs oxycodone? I currently take 40mgs of oxycodone, and would like to change to MS IR, what amount of MS IR is equal to 40mgs of Oxycodone? ## Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so an equivalent dosage would be 60mgs. However, you do need to make sure you taking the same formulation, since both Oxycodone and Morphine come in regular, instant and time released formulations. Thus, if you're taking the regular release formulation of Oxycodone, then you would need a regular release formulation, in that dosage, of the Morphine. The only 40mg Oxycodone available is the extended release, Oxycontin. Due to the dangers of overdose, from getting too much medication, at once, it is highly unlikely that your doctor is going to give ... ...

white ## No such thing, are you referring to Oxycodone? Or Morphine? Either way, you have not provided enough information, do you know how many pills there are that are white? There are no proprietary guidelines in the pharmaceutical industry that states all pills with the same ingredient must be the same color, size and/or shape. These are entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer. And whether you are talking about Oxycodone or Morphine, or something else, there are many of them that are white, all of differing doses and forms. ## oxymorphine is a pill, it was recently fda approved..3x stronger then morphine ## oxymorphine is very real, and very strong, I, myself have lupis, and have taken oxymorphine 10 mg, BUT... it was not white, it was peach, also very effective. ## i th... ...

How do I ask my doctor to raise the dosage without her thinking i'm an addict or something ## You should just honestly tell her that you've been taking them as prescribed, but are having more pain than usual.

Is a tec 30 stronger than a percocet 5? Is taking a tec 30 the same as taking a percocet 30? ## If I am not mistaken TEC 30 contains 30 mg of Codeine, whereas a Percocet 5 contains 5 mg of Oxycodone. As far as comparisons go I had a look at the Equianalgesic table and it's showing that Codeine is 1/10th the relative strength of Morphine, where as Oxycodone is 1.5 times stronger than Morphine. So to break that down ... 30 mg of Codeine ≅ 3 mg of Morphine ... 5 mg of Oxycodone ≅ 7.5 mg of Morphine. In other words, a Percocet 5 is over twice as strong as 30 mg of Codeine. ...
