You can take the Morphine with the Motrin 800 but I would not take the Morphine and Hydrocodone together as it will make you very tired and possibly very weak. If you take the Morphine a couple of times a day and have breakthrough pain then you may be able to take the Hydrocodone in between but not at the same time. Do not drive or do anything dangerous like climbing or sign any legal documents while taking such heavy meds, the Motrin is o.k. though. Take care and hope you feel better soon, marjorie zych

Marjorie is right. Also remember that both hydrocodone and morphine are respiratory depressants. Good luck to you.

I'm assuming the Morphine is time released and the hydro is for breakthrough pain? Also prescribed by the same doc. I agree with htwooh as well. I made some assumptions.

I was informed not to mix opiates... so no mixing of morphine and hydrocodone. Depending on your particular situation, sometimes it is ok to mix an opiate with ibuprofen, but typically they recommend tylenol/acetaminophen. Just make sure to find out from a professional before doing any changes or additions to your medications. Best wishes, and God bless!

Morphine and hydrocodone together will cause you to have shortness of breath. Since morphine does not have tylenol in it the motrin will be fine with it. The motrin and hydrocodone is really unnecessary because the hydrocodone already has tylenol in it. Not really good to put all three together again this is unnecessary one with the other should work just fine but you dont really need to put all of them together at once might cause some serious shortness of breath.
