I take this medication (strength is 20mg/ml). I have chronic pancreatitis, and I have also had gastric bypass so my stomach is not normal.

While the pamphlet included with the bottle had loads of info for the doctor, it had nothing for the consumer/patient. Directions of "HOW" to use it and what to expect would be nice.

While the drug works effectively, it has been almost impossible to buy this drug. Both chain pharmacies, Long's and Walgreen's, say that the manufacturers either stopped making morphine temporaro;y or even permananently after the FDA's enforcement order. Even if this is just a "scarcity in the market" that can be resolved, it has not shown any indicatiobn of change in 6 or ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have chronic kidney stones that just began last year as a result of Ulcerative Colitis. I have been given numerous drugs fom Vicodin, Oxycontin, fentanyl patches, and now morphine solution.
