"MSo4" is just the chemical sign for Morphine Sulfate. If a drug is slow release it will usually be noted as "ER" for extended release... "CR" for continuous release, etc. The best way to get accurate information for your drug questions is to call your Registered Pharmacist (not the pharmacy tech). I am always amazed at the "WRONG INFORMATION" that I see posted on this site. Everyone has an answer... but most of the time it is mis-information.
- Morphine Information for Consumers
- Morphine Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Morphine (detailed)
