What Are M30 Round Purple Pills?

The round purple pill with the imprint 30 M has been identified as Morphine Sulfate Extended-Release 30 mg. It is supplied by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Morphine is a potent opioid drug that is prescribed to relieve pain and combat insomnia. Morphine works by releasing dopamine, which can cause a euphoric feeling shortly after use. Since it is a narcotic drug, morphine has the potential to be extremely addictive. Risk cannot be ruled out during pregnancy. M30 purple pill is classified as a Schedule 2 controlled substance under the Controlled Substance Act (CSA).

How should this medicine be used?

Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. If you are taking the extended-release tablets like M30 purple pill, swallow them one at a time with plenty of water. Swallow the extended-release tablets right after putting it in your mouth. Do not presoak, wet, or lick the extended-release tablets before you put them in your mouth.

Your doctor may start you on a low dose of morphine and gradually increase your dose until your pain is controlled. Your doctor may adjust your dose at any time during your treatment if your pain is not controlled. If you feel that your pain is not controlled, call your doctor.
