Actually if memory serves me I believe it was kind of purplish in color. The oramorph was pink.

he had script for 18 consecutive months for 15 mg ms contin..the police charged him with 60 milligram because of color or so he say..police say 15mg were blue yet he has never had any blue morphine pills. this was 2007 and 2008. I thought maybe formulation and color may have changed in last few years just like oxycontin did. I told him to check the numbers on the pills but he is not allowed this early in the criminal case.

does anyone know where I can find out all the different colors and numbers from all manufactuers back in 2007 and 2008??? my cousin says all time release schedule 2 drugs have changed in past few years where they are more difficult to abuse by snorting or injecting and he believes they also changed the colors and numbers. he is facing 8 years mandatory minimum if they are 60 mg instead of 15. I suggested pharmacist could have give him 60 by mistake and he says not possible that he would have known difference immediately.

You can call your local library and ask if they have a PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) from that time frame. Your cousin is right, if they had given him 60 mg instead of 15 mg he was use to he would have know it right away. Also, if the pharmacist had made a mistake like that, they would have know about it rather quickly.

It sounds like your cousin isn't being totally honest with you. No police department/DA is going to charge someone with possession of this med based on the color.

First Im confused why now? Did this just happen or did this happen back then? Is he saying he still had these from that time period? Im not getting why it would mean jail time if he was in possesion of his own meds? Unless we are talking about selling then the mgs are going to be counted.

Like said already the public library may have the older volumes of the PDR but a med school library will definately.

An internet search in most all drug databases will still reveal an out of manufactured med as well but Im pretty sure all the current MS makers are still in production.

They changed the morphine around that time period making it gel up when broken down so it couldnt be injected but I dont recall who initiated that and Im pretty sure thats the one that came out a deep olive green color. The MS colors are difficult to describe because they have a unique almost color combination
making them very distinguishable

The numbers or symbols are going to be the key here.

he had them left over from 2008..he had hid them in flashlight when he moved and forgot they were there he hauled them around in flashlight in a box in the back of his suv for 5 years.

I believe it will be straigtened out once the police lab examines them also he is charged with quantity of 60 and milligram of 60 the cops looked them up in current year pill identifier book. could just be typo 60 pills 60 mg. I am just trying to prepare he got 18 scripts of 30 in 17 months the were filled every 28 days.
he has his cvs records all were ms contin 15 mg some said wat some did not.some say tableth have no idea what the h means I assume the wat is watson

I wonder why someone would be sporting around with a 2007 script of pills on them anyway. The pills would be so old they are useless.

Most meds are good for several or more yrs. The date on the prescription bottle doesn't mean the med is no longer any good. It is the date on the manufacturers bottle that counts and that is usually for 5 yrs or more.

I also wonder why someone would be driving around with this in their vehicle. At first I though maybe they were in the flashlight as a way to keep them safe. .ie no one would think to look there if they wanted to steal them. But, I don't believe that is the case.

he moved to another town 80 miles away and forgot pills were there and hauled them around for 5 years in flashlight in a cardboard box along with files ,gloves, toboggan and etc..actually had 3 boxes in the back of his suv..but right now all that is irrelevant
