if it is extended release, it will say morphine sulfate ER. This means it is a long acting pill, not necessarily a "12 hour" pill. The directions on a long acting pill will usually be to take it twice a day but I have seen some people need to take it every 8 hours and a few more often than that. If you are unsure which pill you have, your pharmacist should be able to tell you if it is a long acting or time release pill or you can inter the markings on the pill into the Pill Indentifier and it will tell you what it is.
