Morphine sulfate 30 mg for sale
Depending on the form, it can be used to control sudden pain quickly or more long-lasting (chronic) pain. Taking morphine for a long period of time can become habit-forming, and people can have bothersome symptoms if the medication is stopped suddenly.
How morphine works
Morphine is an opioid medication. It binds to certain parts of your brain, called mu-opioid receptors, to change how you react to pain. This helps lower how much pain you feel.
What’s the difference between MS Contin and Kadian?
MS Contin is a tablet and taken either 2 or 3 times a day, whereas Kadian is a capsule and taken 1 or 2 times a day.
Can you stop taking morphine right away if your pain goes away?
Withdrawal symptoms include restlessness, runny nose, yawning, sweating, chills, widened pupils, and anxiety. Stopping morphine suddenly can cause uncontrolled pain and suicide. If the duration of your morphine treatment is brief, you might be able to lower your dose more quickly. Your healthcare provider will give you instructions on how to do this safely.
Can you take morphine if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding?
If you’ve been taking morphine for a long period of time, your baby can become dependent on opioids the same way that you can. Withdrawal symptoms in your newborn can include high-pitched crying, poor feeding and sucking behavior, irritability, and abnormal sleep patterns. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, let your healthcare provider know to see if there are other pain medications you can take.
