Not allergy: Since opiates such as morphine directly releases histamine from the body cells, a good % of the people may end up with itching and even hives from it. But this is a chemical and not a truly allergic reaction and is usually dose-dependent. Opiates can cause sedation, stomach upset, and constipation but these are not from being allergic. Thus most if not all reactions are not allergic in nature. ...Read more

Would oxycodone 5mg be stronger then morphine sulfate 15mg? They're switching my pain med, saying the morphine is time released, is it stronger tho?
No: There is no such thing, really, as "stronger" when we talk about drugs. Potency is really just a matter of how big the pill is. All opioids work equally effectively in equipotent doses. However, they are affected by how well they are absorbed (immediate release morphine is poorly absorbed), how quickly they get to the brain and side effects they have. The ms is higher dose than the oxycodone. ...Read more
