Same Drug or is it Not?

Is morphine and oxycontin taken together harmful?
Avatar_dr_f_tn
Hi,
How are you? Oxycontin or oxycodone is a opioid pain reliever similar to morphine. They are both indicated to treat moderate to severe pain. It is recommended not to take these medications together  to prevent  serious side effects.  (ref:http://www.drugs.com/oxycontin.html and http://www.drugs.com/morphine.html)
It is best that you discuss this with your doctor and take your medicine as prescribed. Take care and do keep us posted.
