I have Lupus and fibramialigia, seizure disorders, hypothriodism, Chronic blood clots, Chronic Pain disorder, Sciatica, neuropthy and a host of other problems.
When I went to pick up my medication I notice the pill was white and did not have ER, my doctor made a mistake and left the ER off of the prescription.
I have been on morphine Sulfate 15 mg ER 3 times a day, a few days ago when I went to pick up my medication I noticed the pill was white and did not have ER on the bottle. I was told it was the same thing, but my body do not say it is the same and I feel I need more of this medication sooner than 8 hours a part
EX is an abbreviation for EXTENEDED RELEASE, which means a smaller quantity of the drug is realest over a longer period of time,therefore the medication lasts for a longer period of time.
you need to call the pharmacy to explain and ask if there was just a label problem, if Rx was filled wrong, or if your doc made a mistake.It won't take long to be miserable if you got immediate release instead of the ER. It's YOUR BODY--FIGHT FOR IT! No one else will!
