Morphine Sulfate Er

Drug Info for morphine sulfate er

Morphine is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. Morphine extended-release tablets and capsules are only used to relieve severe (around-the-clock) pain that cannot be controlled by the use of other pain medications. Morphine extended-release tablets and capsules should not be used to treat pain that can be controlled by medication that is taken as needed. Morphine is in a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics. It works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain.

Kadian is an extended-release capsule used by adults to manage severe pain. It is used on a long-term, continuous basis. Accidental ingestion, overdose, misuse or abuse of Kadian can lead to addiction to this medication or even death.
