Roxanol = Morphine Sulfate
The FDA has now resorted to asking the manufactures if the good, out weights the bad when it comes narcotics. Some companies did not want to go through the paper work, so instead discontinued their drugs not to mess with the Feds. I am NOT saying all drugs are discontinued they are questioning heavy narctoics.Check with your doctor, he/she can find out for you who else makes the drug or simular drug that works best for her.
Have you also thought maybe your pharmacy discontinued this heavy narctoic because they have been robbed too many times.So they (the pharmacy) just does not carry it any more. You may have to check with your doctor and find out if he/she has a suggestion.
Maybe it is time for your mother see a Doctor that is Certified in Pain Management, if you are not seeing one now.
