is a ms cotin 60mg pill the same as the abg 60mg pills
MS Contin is a slow, extended release tablet, gradually releasing 60 mgs of morphine sulfate through your system over a 12 hour period. Regular IR Morphine tabs immediately release 60 mgs of morphine into your system instead of over a slow period of time. MS Contin should never be crushed & swallowed whole to keep a possible overdose from happening. Are you currently taking a medication containing morphine? If so, how much? And are you also on other pain medications as well? Hope I could be of some help...
Please just be sure if you are on it like our friend said if its MS contin which releases over a period of 12 hours, Your prescription bottle should be an indicator of what it is, if its extended release then it should say on the bottle Never Chew, Never Crush, or never break the pill in half, otherwise it should say morphine IR which as she said is morphine Immediate release, I hope I have not confused you, please use extreme caution with these medicines, and take only as directed by your doctor. with best wishes,
