Oxcycodone-Acetaminophen 5-325... she was taking these when prescribed Fentanyl 12 MCG/HR patch on 9/28 and she died on 10/3 from "respritory depression" from accidental prescription overdose... an autopsy showed potentially lethal amounts of Fentanyl and Morphine (it was determined that the morphine came from a legal/prescribed source). My questions are - could the morphine have come from the Oxcycodone and/or could have been from MS-Contin which was found in her purse months later? Thanks
Hello wirea13, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Drugs (narcotics in particular) can be very dangerous if used inappropriately. I use Fentanyl 50mcg. and take 3 percocets a day for breakthrough pain.
To answer your question: could the morphine have come from the Oxcycodone and/or could have been from MS-Contin? ABSOLUTELY! They both are a form of Morphine and MS Contin is Morphine. Hope this answers any question you might have. Again, I am so Sorry about your loss and will keep you in our prayers.
