Why cant you use morphine sulfate to treat surgical pain?
I had a herniated disc in my L5S1 area of my back. The doctor gave me morphine sulfate for the pain. Last week I had decompression surgery to correct the problem. I was given a different pain med. that works very well but the doctor told me not to use the morphine for pain. I was given morphine in the hospital but I cant use the morphine sulfate for pain at home. The literature they give with medication when you get a perscription filled even says not to use morphine sulfate to treat postsurgery pain. I just want to know if there is a medical reason why you cant use morphine sulfate to treat surgical pain.

  Couldn't say it any better than Matador89 did. He is spot on. I had the same surgery and believe me you won't need the Morphine, that surgery was a blessing for me, I hope it is for you. Good Luck
Can morphine sulfate be IV'd through the arm?
Just wondering can someone crush up morphine sulfate and shoot it up? Or does it not work in water? Its Morphine Sulfate not regular morphine. I found needles in my brothers room next to this bottle of morphine sulfates. Please let me know
  Yes you can. If you think your brother is doing this please tell someone. It is very dangerous, he could kill himself with an overdose.
Dosage info of zinc sulfate supplements?
My dermatologist prescribed zinc sulfate supplements for acne.
She just said take them an hour after meals. Each tablet weighs 200 mg.

I'm seventeen years old, medium build. How much am i suppose to take? how many times a day ? What are the dangers of taking high doses?

Does zinc sulfate really help in clearing up skin?
  Yes, zinc is good for clearing up the skin. My question is, isn't all of the dosage info on the bottle you got? It should tell you how many times a day and how many pills at a time. If you are still confused after looking at the bottle or info that came with the bottle (all prescriptions come with information on dosage and side effects) then please call your doctor.

Ferrous Sulfate supplement - Is one that says, "Equivalent" to 325mg as good as one that actually is 325mg?
Doctor ordered me to take ferrous sulfate, 325mg, because of very low iron levels in my blood test. In researching which product to buy, I see some that say they HAVE 325mg of ferrous sulfate, and some that say they have (for example) "65mg Iron, Equivalent to 325mg ferrous sulfate.

Is there really a difference between the two, and is one better than the other for iron therapy?

  Ferrous sulfate is an extremely oxidative form of iron, meaning it causes cell death when ingested. Many children die each year mistaking the tablets for candy. It's fairly harmless in adults but it does still cause cell damage especially to the liver if taken in high doses or for too long. Ferrous fumarate is a much safer and more tolerable form of iron to take but it can be harder to find. Your doc may be able to find it for you on his computer if you can't.

All minerals have to be bound or chelated to something for it to reach our cells. In this case iron is attached to a sulfate molecule 325mg in total, but the actual iron content (also known as elemental amount) is 65mg. Both the products you mention have the same amount of elemental iron in them. Hope this helps.
Can I take Methadone with Morphine Sulfate?
My doctor prescribed I take Methadone with Morphine Sulfate to treat my intense lower back pain. I was originally taking Methadone with Roxycodone but today she replaced it with Morphine Sulfate. My pharmacist seemed kinda concerned about me taking those two together. Is it safe to take?
  Your pharmacist is right to be concerned, but I'm sure it is because of the strength of meds, in other words he/she is probably worried that you will be to "high".
You were probably prescribed 10mg methadone tabs, if so it is common. Reason being both methadone and Morphine sulfate are opiates, that means they work through the spinal cord to alleviate pain.
You are absolutely right to check and double check your meds. All I can tell you is that it was eventually prescibed to me this way and I really do have better pain relief now.
Of course everyone reacts differantly to differant medications and in my case we have been working to find a good pain solution for quite a while. Chronic Back Pain is so difficult to treat (pain wise) because levels of pain vary so much that the doctors really must track our communication with them as well as our physical condition, so be sure if you are uncomfortable to contact his office asap.
Good Luck to you, I hope you find the pain relief that you need.

Is there any Anti-fungle component here?
  NO....anti-bacterial only and normally for skin infections. Antifungals are things like Tinactin or al ot of other over the counter types for jock itch, female vaginal infections, yeast infections.

Do you know any toothpaste that doesnt have sodium lauryl sulfate in it?
Sodium lauryl sulfate is an ingredient present in all toothpaste. It seems that is very harmful for our gum and teeth since it is a detergent.. It seems that it is like high fructose corn syrup that is present in so many kind of food and it is the culprit of obseity. Well now it is sodium lauryl sulfate in toothpaste that it seems to be the enemy in the fight against cavities and gum recession.
  I have a tube of Crest cavity protection on the active ingredient it says sodium floride & floride ion it doesn't say it contains sodium lauryl sulfate. hope this helps

Is a body wash with Sodium Laureth Sulfate better than a body wash with Ammonium Laureth Sulfate?
Some leading body washes contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate, but others contain Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Laureth Sulfate. The difference between SLS and ALS isn't really notable, but is there a difference between the body washes?

What is the specific gravity of the copper sulfate solution they test blood for anemia with?
Like when you go to a blood drive and they have to test you for anemia, I know they use a copper sulfate solution. But does anyone know the ratio of copper sulfate to water they use? (well I'm assuming it's just those two chemicals)
Donna The Crazy Kid
  The specific gravity is 2.28 (hydrated) 3.6 (anhydrous).
Has anyone taking morphine sulfate or Avinza 30mg cp24?
I have servere lower back pain that is shooting down my legs. My doctor put me on this morphine sulfate and I wanted to if anyone has taken this and what side effects you had.
Sweet T
  I take morphin sulfate three times a day, and i have gotten that shootinig cramping pain in my left leg. It is very painful. The opiats can cause cramping while taking them. try drinking plenty of fluids and streching your leg, it helped for me.
Is it okay to take Ferrous Sulfate while taking Vitamin E?
I usually take Myra E and I know that my blood pressure is 90/50. I want to take ferrous sulfate
  I think it might be ok to take it with vitamin E. Check here. This site lists many of the foods and supplements that interfere with the body's absorption of iron.
Can you mix Dextroamphamine and Morphine Sulfate?
I took Dextroamphetamine yesterday at about 1am. Is it ok if I use the Morphine Sulfate injection tonight, or is it too soon to take it?
  You need to consult the prescribing doctor(s) and the dispensing pharmacist(s).

Why did you take an stimulant at 1am?

what solution works best for recovering undistorted prtozoan cysts and nematode larvae from fecal samples?
need it for my college test............heres the choices i have
glucose, sodium chloride, sodium sulfate, zinc sulfate
  I am just guessing here, but here's the logic: need sodium chloride to make sure there is an osmotic balance in the solution and the organism; and glucose to increase the density of the solution so the organisms float to the top. I have no idea if this is correct.
how do you use magnesium sulfate ?
My mom hands really hurts. its been hurting for a while already. So she bought Magnesium Sulfate U.S.P. & She wants to know how to use it. How do you use it ???
Medicinal Allergies?
I was told at about 10 I could possibly have an allergy to sulfur drugs when I got a rash after taking a sulfur antibiotic, I was never tested the doc wasnt sure but said better safe than sorry assume you have an allergy to sulfur drugs. At the time they didnt know I had eczema so that could have been the cause of the rash as you tend to break out when sick.

My question is should I refrain from taking prenatal vitamins containing zinc sulfate, cupric sulfate or magnesium sulfate or is that a different make up than the sulfur in antibiotics? The only reaction I had the the antibiotic was a rash, which they arent even positive if it was the cause.
  I am allergic to sulfa also, same thing,rash's.... But take your prenatal vitamins, those are very important and it's not the same thing....Per chance if ever you get a reaction to vitamins, just look at them and start eliminating what you possibly think it could be, but vitamins are very important as your diet is through your pregnancy...

Magnesium Sulfate Paste?
I have a paronychia (swelling around the nailbed) and I heard that magnesium sulfate (epsom) would work well if I either soaked it or applied the paste to it. I heard that it causes the pus to come to the surface and cause the paronychia to burst. Does anyone know where I can get Magnesium Sulfate Paste? Or will a soak in Epsom Salt work.
  The paste is more convenient than soaking, but actually not as good as several soaks in hot (hot, but still comfortable) epsom salt solution. With the paste, you put it on, cover it, and forget about it. With soaking, you need to get a container that is large enough for the water to hold the heat for 10-15 minutes, and sit there with you hand in the container several times per day.
A question about the methods of taking morphine sulfate ER?
would crushing the extended release morphine sulfate then placing it in a glass of water to drink down quicken the effects of the release?
phil t
  Actually, you are going to over dose yourself that way, possibly with a fatal dose as a lot of er morphine is high dose to be released over a 24-48 hour time period. Crushing the pill will break the coatings.
Does prolong use of quinine sulfate cause blood disorders? Used over 15 years?
Platelette count ranges from 43,000 to 67,000. Avg. of 50,000
Need back surgery. Physcians will not do surgery.
Could quinine sulfate cause spleen to enlarge? Possible ITP.
  Well, I don't know the answers to all those questions, but I know that Quinine is used for malaria attacks and my brother used it whenever he had an attack for years. I understand that there is now a cure for malaria (not sure, I only heard it once).
I don't know what your condition is, or how your platelet count would relate to needing back surgery. If your doctor(s) won't do it, I assume that they have determined that you don't need it or it is contraindicated by your other condition(s).
Do you maybe just have some vertebrae out of place and need a Chiropractic adjustment? Have you had X-Rays or any tests to determine what your back problem is? I assume that if you have a kidney infection, the doctors would have found it.
Here is something I found on platelet count. This makes it sound as if yours is extremely low, unless you left out a zero. If it is truly that low compared to the normal range shown below, that sounds as if you may have a problem with your immune system.

Normal results. The normal range for a platelet count is 150000-450000 platelets per microliter of blood. Abnormal results. An abnormally low platelet level ...

For the enlarged spleen, here is what the Mayo Clinic shows:

Here is a site for the quinine sulfate usage. It sounds as if you have been taking it continuously for 15 years.
my 2 year old ingested albuterol sulfate inhalation solution?
My son possibly drank his sisters albuterol sulfate solution 0.083 percent what are some signs that I need to watch for and what can I do
Jennifer Jude
  No need for panic! The albuterol sulfate inhalation solution comes in prepackaged squeeze containers and doesn't hold more then a few cc's of solution. On top of that it is also diluted with a saline solution so when you squeeze it into the SVN (small volume nebulizer), the worst that will happen is that your son will get a mild case of diarrhea. The solution is meant to be inhaled yes, BUT, once the solution has been inhaled it passes through small alveoli into the bloodstream which will just give the same effect as if you drank the solution. Nothing happens to your daughter, nothing is going to happen to your son. The medication is used to treat constricted airways and help with bronchial problems, asthma, etc. If your son has none of these problems the medication will have no affect on him. The only way this would be cause for concern is if he ingested a LARGE amount or he did this on a regular basis. If you're still worried you can call the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 and talk to a professional just to be on the safe side.

Still, keep a close eye on him in case he has a reaction since at that young of an age you are still learning about allergies to certain medications
What is 220 mg zinc sulfate used for?
I'm a pharmacy student, and I have a patient who is on zinc sulfate 220 mg daily. There is no history of a deficiency, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any other indications for this.
Patient has PMH significant for DM, stroke, hyperlipidemia, CAD, Obestiy, sleep apnea, NASH.
  Based on available scientific evidence, zinc may be effective in the treatment of (childhood) malnutrition, acne vulgaris, peptic ulcers, leg ulcers, infertility, Wilson's disease, herpes, acrodermatitis enteropathica and delayed wound healing associated with zinc deficiency, rheumatoid arthritis,and taste or smell disorders. Zinc has also gained popularity for its use in the prevention of the common cold.
Can a patient take Albuterol Sulfate and Advair together?
The spelling is Albuterol sulfate
  Yes .... in acute states they are prescribed together ..... the advair is a long term therapy that should be continued in the acute phase ... and the albuterol is used to address the acute airways dysfunction, generally during hospital confinement
OxyContin And Morphine Sulfate the Same?
So I was wondering if Morphine Sulfate was the generic pill for Oxycontin? Or the other way around? Or are they just two completely different drugs?
Thanks in advance!
  No they aren't the same. I was prescribed Oxycontin and Oxycodone because I have lung cancer. The Oxycontin was taken twice a day every day, and the Oxycodone was taken whenever I had breakthrough pain in between. The doctor switched me to Morphine Sulfate because the Oxy's weren't working that great. The Morphine works much better.
polymyxin b sulfate

I am allergic to bactrim and I was told it is due to the sulphur content.The flu injection I was going to have has polymyxin b sulfate in it has it got sulphur in it and do I need to be concerned?
Benzonatate & an Albuterol Sulfate Inhaler. Is it okay to use both at once?
Dosage is 100 MG for Benzonatate, The inhalor is ProAir HFA (albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Aerosol.
  I searched this site and check my nursing drug handbook and both said there was no reaction but you should ask a pharmacist or a doctor to be 100% sure.

What would cause a drop of blood to go up (instead of down) in a copper sulfate solution?
I am a blood donor, and I failed the copper sulfate test. Then, they checked my blood in a machine and my hemoglobin was fine. They couldn't explain to me why that happened.

What's the difference between Ferrous sulfate and Ferrous gluconate?
I have been taking Iron as ferrous sulfate (which is otc) and I am about to finish it and have this other form of Iron (which was originally prescribed to my sister), so I want to know if they are too different or I could take it? (I usually don't auto medicate myself, thus the question) thanks.
  The dosing is different, but iron is iron.

Gluconate is usually better tolerated than sulfate.
What is the difference between ferrous fumarate, ferrous gluconate, ferrous sulfate?
I am anemic and have been for awhile. Despite 2 iron shots in the past month and taking 325mg of ferrous sulfate a day with calcium, my iron dropped. I am currently a 7.7 (I am not bleeding). Someone told me ferrous gluconate was better, but someone else told me that ferrous fumarate had more elemental iron. Whats the difference between the three?!?
Sorry! I am taking vitamin C! I just had a check up and I am now at a 9.3 serum iron level. Still low, but the Ferrous Sulfate seems to be working.
Heather S
  The difference is that ferrous fumerate and ferrous gluconate are organic iron which is absorbed much better than ferrous sulphate which is inorganic iron.
