Thanks for writing to us.

Oramorph contains morphine sulphate.10 mg oramorph is not so strong dose as addicts take.

I hope this answers your query. I will be available for further guidance if you needed.

Wishing you good health...

Doc I am 6 days removed from gallbladder surgery. The recovery hasa normal one. One the 5 day i tooksome oxycontin for the pain which i never used prior. First time. I became flush and felt sick as well. I felt oain in my lower abdominal area. Pain level went from a 1 to a 8 or 9. It eventually subsided. Unfortunately, now i have some brownish discoloration about 2 wide and 5 across on the right side of my lower abdominal and redness right above my gential area (lowest part of the abdominal). I have no pain, no fever, body functions are normal. My urine is darker than usually. Was this a allergic reaction to the oxycontin? A issue with bile function? Internal bleeding from a pulled incion?

I suffer from severe chronic pain and have been prescribed hydrocodone since I was 22, I am now 52. Less than a year ago my doctor of twelve years sent me a letter telling me he would no longer prescribe narcotics and was also declining from being my PCP. I was shocked and hurt. Confused. I called and asked why and was never given a reason, even when I went to administration and risk management. I am now in foreclosure of my ranch as I can not function and perform my chores involved for me to make my living. Any speculations you may have would be appreciated.

since I am disabled I am forced to take generic meds for my pain. generic does not work the way a brand/real dose would. I have only found 1 generic that remotely close to the brand. I think the name is Mellinrodt (according to pharmacy. It is so difficult to obtain this as drug stores carry the cheepist. You would not believe the remarks that come from the mouth of some of some pharmacist. I thought aarp was a good insurance. Last year my prescriptions cost over 5,000. I take 60mg of ms contin generic, 3 times daily. My breakthrough drug is Nucynta and truthfully it is not a good pain med. It does help me sleep through the pain. Nucynta does not have a generic, therefore I pay close to 500 for just those 2 pain meds. I need to change the Nucynta, I,m tired of being hungry. Any advice??
