Statex How to Take

Statex (Morphine) belongs to the class of medications called narcotic analgesics (pain relievers). These pain relievers are also known as opioid analgesics. Statex (Morphine) relieves severe pain when less potent pain relievers are not effective. Opioids decrease pain by working on the brain to increase pain tolerance. Statex (Morphine) immediate release works quickly. It will usually relieve pain within about 30 minutes.

Statex (Morphine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Statex (Morphine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Statex (Morphine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Statex (Morphine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Statex (Morphine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Statex (Morphine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Statex (Morphine) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Statex (Morphine) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Statex Dosage

Doses of Statex (Morphine) vary widely and depend on the circumstances of an individual.

After a certain dose of Statex (Morphine) has been taken for a period of time, the body often gets used to it and a higher dose of Statex (Morphine) is needed to relieve the pain. Generally, your doctor will try to find the dose of Statex (Morphine) that will give you acceptable pain relief without an unacceptable level of side effects. This helps to reduce the side effects of the medication and allows for the dose to be adjusted upwards if needed. Always check with your doctor if you feel your medication isn't working well anymore.

Over time, Statex (Morphine) may produce tolerance and physical dependence as your body becomes used to the medication. Tolerance occurs when a dose that used to provide acceptable pain relief is no longer effective, and higher doses are required to achieve the same level of pain relief. Physical dependence is a state where the body will go into withdrawal if the medication is stopped suddenly. If you have been taking Statex (Morphine) on a regular basis for a long period of time, talk to your doctor before stopping the medication, as withdrawal effects can occur.

Tolerance and physical dependence are not the same as addiction. Addiction is defined as a psychological need to use the medication for reasons other than pain relief. Although people may become addicted to Statex (Morphine), it is most common for people who have had addictions to other substances in the past.

Statex (Morphine) tablets should be swallowed whole and not chewed, cut, broken or crushed, which can be dangerous and lead to serious harm or death. Statex (Morphine) capsules should be swallowed whole, or the capsules may be opened and the contents sprinkled on food. The liquid form of Statex (Morphine) may be mixed with a glass of fruit juice just before taking it to improve the taste.

If you are using a suppository, first remove the foil wrapper and moisten the suppository with cold water. Lie down on your side and use your finger to push the suppository well up into the rectum. If you find the suppository is too soft to insert, chill it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or run cold water over it before removing the foil wrapper.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Store Statex (Morphine) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Accidental ingestion of Statex (Morphine), especially by children, can have severe and even fatal consequences.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Statex Precautions

There may be an interaction between Statex (Morphine) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Statex (Morphine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Statex Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Statex (Morphine).

Alcohol use: Alcohol increases the risk of severe side effects from Statex (Morphine) , such as decreased blood pressure, seizures, breathing problems and severe drowsiness. Consuming alcohol while you are taking Hydromorphone is not recommended.

Abdominal (stomach) conditions: Statex (Morphine) and other narcotic medications may make the diagnosis of abdominal conditions more difficult or it may worsen these conditions. If you have abdominal or stomach problems, discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Accidental use: Accidental ingestion or use of as little as one dose of Statex (Morphine) by someone for whom it has not been prescribed can lead to a fatal overdose. Children are especially at risk. Keep Statex (Morphine) out of sight and reach of children.

Difficulty breathing: Statex (Morphine) can cause serious and life-threatening breathing problems. If you experience slowed breathing or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention. If you have lung problems and are taking other medications that can slow breathing, you are more at risk of experiencing these symptoms.

Make sure you follow the instructions on how to properly use Statex (Morphine). If you have any questions, contact your doctor or pharmacist. If you have a chronic lung condition, such as Bronchitis, emphysema, or asthma, discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of this medication, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Dependence and withdrawal: Drug addiction is usually not a problem for people who require Statex (Morphine) for pain relief. Physical dependence (a need to take regular doses to prevent physical symptoms) has been associated with narcotic analgesics such as Statex (Morphine). Withdrawal symptoms may be experienced if the dose is significantly reduced or suddenly discontinued. These symptoms include seizures, irritability, sleep problems, agitation, tremors, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, headache, muscle cramps, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, sweating, and confusion. Reducing the dose gradually under medical supervision can help prevent or decrease these withdrawal symptoms when Statex (Morphine) is no longer required for pain control.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Statex (Morphine) may impair the mental or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery. You should avoid such activities until you are certain Statex (Morphine) does not have this effect on you.

Head injury: Statex (Morphine) can cause increased pressure inside the head. If you have an acute head injury or other conditions that increase your intracranial pressure (pressure inside the head), discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Kidney function: If you have reduced kidney function or Kidney Disease, discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: If you have reduced liver function or liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Low blood pressure: Statex (Morphine) can cause low blood pressure or make low blood pressure worse. If you experience severe dizziness, especially when standing from a lying or sitting position, contact your doctor.

Other medical conditions: Statex (Morphine) may cause increased symptoms or reduce the symptoms of worsening illness for people with the following conditions:

People with any of these conditions should discuss with their doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Seizures: Statex (Morphine) may worsen preexisting seizure disorders. If tolerance to the medication develops and the dosage is increased substantially above recommended levels, seizures may occur in people without a history of seizure disorders. If you have a seizure disorder, discuss with your doctor how Statex (Morphine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Statex (Morphine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Pregnancy: Statex (Morphine) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. Withdrawal symptoms have been noted in newborns of mothers who used Statex (Morphine) during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Statex (Morphine), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Statex (Morphine) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Statex (Morphine), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Seniors: Seniors may be more sensitive to the side effects of Statex (Morphine) and may require lower doses to reduce the risk of side effects.
