new labeling requirements on super-concentrated liquid morphine solutions
You'll see new labeling requirements on super-concentrated liquid morphine solutions to reduce errors.
Morphine is a powerful pain medication...and mix-ups can result in accidental overdoses and even death.
Now high-dose morphine labels must point out strength differences from other morphine products. For example, Roxane's 20 mg/mL morphine solution label will now be bright yellow on multiple sides...and have "100 mg/5 mL (20 mg/mL)" in white lettering on a red background.
