hi milesamason, Injecting this medication can be very harmful. The inactive ingredients, including talc, can cause veins to collapse, heart disease, and lung disease including fibrosis. The 30mg tablets also contain polysorbate 80. Remember, it's not only the morphine you'll be injecting, but all the impurities and harmful ingredients too. Please be safe and do not inject these medications.
