is morphine stronger than hydrocodone

I was put on morphine sulfate 15mg ER 1 every 12 hours. I had been taking hydrocodone 10/325 4xs a day. Is this a better slightly stronger amount to control pain after taking hydrocodone for 14 years? ## Hello, DezerayBlu! How are you? According to the conversion ratios provided by Global, they convert on a 1:1 ratio. So, to be equal to a daily dose of 40mgs Hydrocodone, you'd need 40mgs of Morphine. It is also time released, so the medication is gradually released over the 12 hour period. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Have you started taking it, yet? If so, how is it working for you? ## I was recently put on morphine sulfate ER 15 mg, every 1... ...

husband was on morphine 30 mg doctor put him on Norco 10/325 which is better for the pain which is the strongest pain pill for pain ## Someone please correct me if I'm interpreting this wrong, but according to the following opioid dosing equivalency chart by umich.edu, two 10mg Norco (Hydrocodone) tablets are reportedly equal one 30mg Morphine tablet. Here's the link for reference: med.umich.edu/1info/FHP/practiceguides/pain/dosing.pdf However, due to possible side effects, individual tolerance, body chemistry, and other personal factors, my understanding is that not all opiates provide the same type of effects or relief even at what would be considered an equivalent dose. Hope this helps! ## I've been looking everywhere for accurate information in regards to converting 30mg... ...

Can i take Oramorph SR 60mg if iam used to 100mg of vicodin ## There is no 100mg Vicodin tablet, they are only available with a maximum of 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 750mgs of Acetaminophen. And if you were taking 10 of them in a day, you were taking far too much of the Acetaminophen and were risking an overdose, which can be fatal or cause severe organ damage. As to the Oramorph SR, it contains a time released formulation of Morphine and while it is stronger than the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin, since it is time released, you don't get all of the medication at once and it may give you better pain control. What had your doctor advised? It may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: ...

is Oxycode 05/52 stronger than morphine 30mg er?
2 Replies RSS
Hello. I take Norco 10/325 TID with MS Contin 20mg er BID for chronic back pain, sciatica, degenerative disease. I never get drowsy and feel it does the job because I notice no pain. I recently tried oxycodone with the letter M on one side & 05/52 on the other which I think is 5mg. Which one is stronger? The oxy i tried or the MS Contin that I've been on? ## 20mg Ms is two times Stronger than a 5mg oxy for sure . ## I noticed that the original poster had a couple typos when referring to Oxycodone and putting the pill imprint for their Morphine directly afterwards, causing some confusion. They also put Norco 10/325 (Hydrocodone/apap) in the underlying description, so I don't know which of the two drugs they are referring to... According to patient commentary in a related thre... ...

how much stronger is morphine 60 than a norco 10

How much stronger is a morphine 60 than a Norco 10 and how many norcos would it take to equal 1 ## Hello, Smeagle! How are you? Morphine and Hydrocodone actually convert on a 1 to 1 ratio, so to equal 60mgs of Morphine, you'd need 60mgs of Hydrocodone. However, you can't take that many, due to the Acetaminophen in them. The limit for that is 3,000mgs daily, as set by the FDA. Exceeding that could result in fatal overdose toxicity. 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. Have you been switched from one to the other, or are you trying to switch yourself? ## Omg really for one thing they only make7.5 norcos not 750 that would be the acetaminophen and meth... ...

15 mg morphine
5 Replies RSS
My Doc prescribed me 15 mg of Morphine. Ive been on vicodin 7.5 mg for three years. How much of a difference is morphine? I took half of the blue pill just now. ## The Morphine is stronger than the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin, it is also a straight narcotic, without the Acetaminophen that is in the Vicodin. It sounds like your doctor is trying to help you get better control of your pain. The main issue here is, what type of Morphine pills are they? If they are the time released version, generics for MS Contin, then cutting the pill in half could be very dangerous and should not be done. It can cause you to have too much of the medication released at once. The side effects are similar and may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

Can I overdose on 1 30mg ER morphine tablet? i weigh 173 lbs if that atters. i have nver taken anything stronger then a hydro 10 and kinda scared to take this medicine. ## I'm not personally aware of the difference in potency from Hydrocodone to Morphine, but I wouldn't suggest taking anything that puts a scare in you like that. If it's too strong it's too strong and your best bet would be to start off with a smaller dose (cut in half perhaps to assess your tolerance). To answer your question though, I don't believe you can overdose on 1 tablet, but you may or may not experience some very undesirable side effects if your body is not used to it. Unfortunately the only way to find out is to try it. I would just suggest a smaller dose to start off. I hope this advice he... ...

How many 15 mg of Morphine Sulfate equal 4 of the 10 mg Hydrocodone?? ## Morphine and Hydrocodone are generally considered equal in strength, when taken orally, so a 10mg Morphine tablet would be equal to 10mgs of Hydrocodone, this your 15mg Morphine is actually a stronger dose than what you were taking of the Hydrocodone. 3 of the Morphine 15mg tablets would be 45mgs and that would actually still be 5mgs stronger than the 40mgs in 4 of the Hydrocodone tablets.

15 mg morphine er compared to oxycodone 10
2 Replies RSS
Which medication is stronger: 15 mg Morphine ER or 10/325 Oxycodone or Hydrocodone 10/325 ## They are very similar. My doctor has put me on and we've tried to figure out what works. best. I get 10mg Norco & 20mg Oxycodone, and I alternate, it REALLY helps!!! (I have a LOT of medical issues.) ## @birdie, I think as post #1 suggested, you pretty much just have to work with your doctor to find out what best suits your level of pain. Some people debate that oxycodone is a step up from hydrocodone. I think the answer may vary with each individual based on personal preference. And as far as comparing morphine ER to immediate release oxycodone, there's probably no easy way to determine an equivalent dose since one is being slowly released...However if it's of any help, the foll... ...

Can I take norco 10/325 flexed all 10 mg with a stacker 2 ## Hi Meddie, There are quite a few different pain meds to choose from that are allegedly stronger than Norco (Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen). Oxycodone in my research seems to be the next step up the latter, but some chronic pain patients may feel that Tramadol, Morphine, Opana, or Dilaudid would be better alternatives. I for one have never taken anything other than Hydrocodone and Morphine in the realm of narcotic analgesics, so I can only go off charts on the web and my own experience, which tells me that Morphine provided greater relief than Hydrocodone after a nose surgery I had done several years ago. If you're able to I'd encourage you to talk with your doctor about this just to see what s/he recommends... And as far a... ...
