LIFE-THREATENING RESPIRATORY DEPRESSION; ACCIDENTAL INGESTION; NEONATAL OPIOID WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME; and RISKS FROM CONCOMITANT USE WITH BENZODIAZEPINES OR OTHER CNS DEPRESSANTS
Misuse, Abuse, and Addiction
contin tablet 200mg puts patients and other users at risk of opioid addiction, abuse, and misuse, which can result in overdose and death. Before prescribing MS CONTIN, assess each patient’s risk, and monitor all patients on a regular basis for the development of these behaviors and conditions [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Respiratory Depression that Endangers Life
The use of MS CONTIN may result in serious, life-threatening, or fatal respiratory depression. Keep an eye out for respiratory depression, especially when starting contin tablet 200mg or increasing the dose. Instruct patients to swallow MS CONTIN tablets whole; crushing, chewing, or dissolving MS CONTIN tablets can result in a potentially fatal dose of morphine being released and absorbed quickly [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Even ingesting one dose of MS CONTIN by accident, especially by children, can result in a fatal morphine overdose [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome in Newborns
Prolonged use of MS CONTIN during pregnancy can cause neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome, which can be fatal if not recognized and treated, and necessitates management according to neonatology experts’ protocols. If opioids are needed for an extended period of time in a pregnant woman, inform her of the risk of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome and ensure that appropriate treatment is available [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Risks of Using Benzodiazepines or Other CNS Depressants Together
Concurrent use of opioids and benzodiazepines or other CNS depressants, including alcohol, can result in profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, DRUG INTERACTIONS].
Concurrent prescribing of MS CONTIN and benzodiazepines or other CNS depressants should be reserved for patients who have exhausted all other treatment options.
Limit dos ages and durations to the absolute minimum.
Keep an eye out for signs of respiratory depression and sedation in your patients.
