Morphine and oxycontin together

Common Questions and Answers about Morphine and oxycontin together


Avatar f tn There are several different sites (like rxlist and that gather all of the label info and print it together. Drugs that are labeled as potentially causing liver damage are to be completely avoided. Those that are labeled to use with caution in patients with impaired hepatic (liver) function usually refer to the fact that they won't hurt the patient but the patient will not be able to process a full dose and should be prescribed a smaller dose.
Avatar n tn A few years ago when they were giving her radiation for colon cancer, she was in terrible pain and needed massive doses of morphine and later Dilaudid. They had managed to burn a hole through her colon that went undetected for some time until peritonitis and proctititis set in. Thank God that she was so doped up that she doesn't remember most of the ordeal! J.B.
Avatar n tn Hi sorry to butt in on the thread, my name is amy and im addicted to oxycontin and other opiates. I'm 17 years old, I work at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor and if I don't have a oxy I don't go to work. I'm sick it I see pills all day long and knowing I can't have them makes it much more restless going so I think if I just don't go I just don't have to deal, RIGHT no not with me I have to pay rent every month work 8 hours a day,hide it from the love ones.
Avatar m tn No there is a big diference between a typical addict and someone who becomes dependent on pain meds. Addicts like I was think and scheme drugs and steal or lye. A person who becomes dependent on pain meds legally doesn't have near as many drug related problems or cravings.
Avatar f tn He was very nice and helpful. He gave me morphine extended release 30mg tables and I need to take those 3x a day. I asked him about pregnancy and this medication. He said that there is always a chance of compilations. He said he has seen several patients that have gotten pregnant on this medication, some have tapered off of it and some continued to stay in this medication.
Avatar f tn I've been taking subutex and xanax for about a year now. I was on percocet 30s and oxycontin 80mg but thought subutex was a good way for me to escape all the grief of withdrawing half the time. I take subutex in the morning and xanax at night usually. Then I started to mix them a little. Sometimes I felt really weird and not right plus was getting xanxious and worried. I've been to the hospital a couple times and thought I was dying.
244884 tn?1189759429 This includes drugs such as tramadol (Ultracet and Ultram) codeine (Tylenol #3, #4), Darvocet, Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab and derivatives), Oxycodone (Endocet, Percocet, Oxycontin), Morphine, Demerol. Fentanyl, and Dilaudud. There are many other opiates not listed, so if you don’t see it listed, you can still use these suggestions if it’s an opiate based addiction. None of these apply to benzodiazepine based addictions. These addictions should never be dealt with by going cold turkey.
Avatar n tn Can someone explain to me wat I will go through and the timetable because I am on hour 11 of quitting oxycontin and percocet cold turkey and iwas taking about 120 mg's a day of either one that I could get my hands on (not 120 mg's of each a day, just 120 mg's of both together) ...any help would be much appreciated. thank you.
Avatar n tn After she passed away I came across some of her pain medication that had not been disposed of. It was MS Contin and MSIR. Both morphine substances, one being slow release and one being quick. I should have thrown them away at the time but I kept them because I thought that they would help me "feel better" in dealing with the loss of my mom. When I took it for the first time it gave me that euphoric feeling that everything would be OK.
Avatar m tn I'm cross addicted to everything. I gave up and took ambien last night. Woke up in a DRENCHED t shirt and sweat. I can't stand the sight of myself or anyone. I'm NOT going to touch oxy or morphine to get through this. Please I pray I don't die. My eyes are watering like a fountain, I'm coughing, wrenching, nausea and my face looks on fire. And the smell! It's like fumes from burning the meds. How much longer? I'm going to try and not take ambien tonight.
Avatar m tn finally made it out clean and was starting to get my **** together when bam started all over again back into blowing 2 or 3 80's a day finally a friend got me some suboxone which i began taking and slowly wheened my self off of that, clean once again for a few months.
Avatar n tn When the time comes, I have decided that I will use methadone, because it works in the same way as morphine and oxycontin, but for pennies a dose. Oxycontin is a very powerful drug that causes physical dependance as well as addiction. I would only use it as a last resort.
Avatar m tn They will most likly give you SOMETHING until you can get with your doctor. When i went to the hospital I was on morphine and fentnyl patches. Now they may not give you that much, but they won't let you get to the point that it is dangerous to your health either. If it gets too bad to handle you really should go to the ER. Good Luck bustedflush, we are here for ya as much as we can help, I know that doesn;t sound like much right now, but it's all we can do for ya.
Avatar n tn I blew out my knee and got vicodine, then ES, finally oxycontin (20's). The knee got scoped and healed, took about six months. Went to quit the meds and quikly realized tapering was the way to go. Got some valium for the jones and used vicodin ES and a pill cutter to wean. told everone I had the flu and spent a week in bed with more sympoms than space here to describe.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I have had problems with many drugs including, oxycontin, vicodin, cocaine, lorcets and alcohoal. I am 23 years old and have experienced many hardships and I now sleep on the coach at my parents house. I am currently seeking treatment in a 12-step program. It has really helped me. Also, I do have to endure lots of pain. I get constant migraines that I am now taking blood pressure medicine called clonidine. It is not an opiate.
Avatar n tn I have so many allergies to medication that the Oxycontin was the only resourse for my pain. I am afraid of becoming addicted and have recently taken myself off for one full week with no with drawal effects. During that time I tried Ultram and it did nothing to help or relieve the pain. So I went back to the Oxycontin. I currently take 20mgs twice a day with 800mgs of Ibuprofin twice a day. It takes the edge off, for now. The doctors have yet to decide their coarse of action.
Avatar n tn I am a 50 year old man who did drugs (mostly IV). morphine and diliaudid were my drugs of choice. I went clean for 17 years before trouble in the cervical spine required 2 surgerys over 2 years. my spine is now stable but i'm still in constant, intractable pain for which i take oxy-contin (40mg X 3a day). my question : I kike to periodically detox myself for several reasions. i try to think of it as vac- ation from drugs. Am i causing myself harm in doing this?
Avatar n tn This time I haven't even filled it yey.Here I sit with a script for morphine and alot of it and I hadn't even got it filled yet and it's been 3 days. This clean time must have taught me something.The doc did tell me it was Kadian because it has no street value and can't be crushed.I wanted to tell the idiot I sure as hell wouldn't be selling it or crushing it.All the doc chasing has made them real leary of us pain patients.I guess you know it the same as MScontin.
Avatar m tn I have been on Oxycontin and Roxicodone for 9 yrs.I have degenerative disc disease with 3 shot discs..Started at 20 mg and worked my way up to 80mg real fast.I was taking 4 80 a day along with 6 30mg roxicodone a day for the breakthrough pain when I had a morphine pump installed.Was taking that dosage with the pump for a year until the pump got infected and had to come out.I later found out that was a blessing as they have now found all sorts of side effects with having the pump implanted.
Avatar m tn Well, I have cut the morphine sulfate off all together and and only did the hydromorphone today BUT the strange thing is I woke up this morning feeling great, I mean I had pain but hardly no witdrawals at all really weird. I agree you are what you eat but percocets do exactly that...
Avatar n tn You have a tuff situation and you have to be tuff. Oxy w/booze can kill depending on amounts he drinks the combo can cause respitory arrest (stops breathing} I' ve been there got me off oxy's at least anything above 10mg, saw 80' plus. if he does not drink much thats a plus. You are right it could ruin you finacially the move out could help him see the light but talk to him he has to want to quit you can't make him quit.
Avatar n tn In case your wondering I did get caught but not because of the people I had to visit, but my boss figured out I had a problem with pain pills and put that together with my home visits. When she sent the nurse out to check the meds where I had been they all came up short. Getting into trouble legally was my bottom!!! Now I do not work around narcotics. Probation mandated!!! I am so glad cause I'm not sure I could come face to face with those great little pills and say no. Good Luck, Ken.
Avatar n tn More people die bleeding to death from aspirin and NSAIDS than from oxycontin, not to mention tobacco and alcohol which ruin more people that oxycontin ever will. I hope this reporter isn't wanting to write something sensationalistic. Journalists have virtually no credibility left anymore anyway. This happened when Woodward and Bernstein popularized the profession and we let any Tom, ****, and Henrietta into it. It seemed so glamorous back then. Now look.
Avatar n tn i tried to taper from 160-200mg oc and 100-400mg morphine (the grey ones) pills and made it down to 20-40mg oc.. it took me like 3 months and was hell the whole time.. then i learned real hell. kicking in jail. i have been clean 6 days now since my last relapse (2 days-160mg oc) and i have had one other 2 day relapse (400 mg morphine) since i first went "cold turkey" on april 1st (when i went to jail). i was unable to quit through tapering.
Avatar n tn a little over two years ago, after numerous cold turkey quits on vicodin- i started taking oxycontin... i am a 37 y.o. male and my normal weight is 260 to 285... after about 8 months of being dependent on oxycontin my weight shot up to 360... at that point i quit cold turkey(which completely sucked and won't do again). needless to say quitting cold turkey did help with weight loss... i was clean for 4-1/2 to 5 months and in that time i dropped sixty pounds, (without dieting or even trying).
1697690 tn?1329127238 I have been using for like 4 and a half years now, I used to be pretty social and would go out a lot and drink and do coke and then one day its like I traded it all in for oxycontin and got so addicted it was shocking. Id never really been addicted to something before the way ive become addicted to oxy. Its literally taken over my life and I want so bad to stop it. Thanks for the suggestions on vitamins, i have 5-HTP that I will take and some valerian root and melatonin so I will try all those.
Avatar n tn I feel like I've gone full cycle with this addiction process in my life and am a hypocrite for even posting here. Ironically, I was addicted to morphine and heroine years ago, got clean for many years and am now back on the stuff legitimately. It's like having an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other most of the time...and always arguing as my head swings back and forth between the two. Do we really get to pay for all of our indiscetions in this life? It surely feels that way to me!
Avatar n tn Heres my problem, Im 19 and Ive been taking Oxycontin/codone 5mg(codone) and 20(contin) for about a year now... the First time i tryed them i took 40mg and boy was i sick as a dog.. Now heres where it starts to get interesting and i would like to know if anyone else can relate to this... I have always been a drug user since ive been about 13 or so..
Avatar f tn All that work to get off my pain pill habit (and there ain't nothing more full of morphine than oxycontin LOL) and the morphine they addicted me to while in the hospital...for nothing? At week 20 it is just too late right now to detox myself from the suboxone and have it make a difference. Plus I just don't WANT to have to go through all that withdrawl during this time. God it just gets more impossible!
