Official Answerby Drugs.com
Arymo ER (morphine sulfate) tablets are formulated with Egalet's proprietary Guardian Technology which boosts resistance to cutting, crushing, grinding or breaking compared to non-abuse-deterrent morphine sulfate extended-release tablets.
Arymo ER is expected to make abuse via injection difficult, too, as contact with liquid results in a viscous hydrogel that is difficult to transfer to a syringe.
