Medication call EMBEDA - taken it?

So I posted earlier about hubby being on Percocet and his moodiness. He's seeing a pain management specialist at UCLA. He is putting him on Embeda which is a morphine based drug. This scares me. Anybody been on this drug or know anything about it personally. I have researched it and get mixed reviews.

  • Embeda contains morphine (and sequestered naltrexone), the morphine is released slowly to provide relief of moderate to severe chronic pain. The side effects should be similar to the product he was on, but the pain relief will last longer with less ups and downs.
