IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION for DepoDur
In clinical trials, the majority of adverse events reported were typical opioid-related side effects, expected in the surgical populations studied. As with all opioids, the most serious side effect of morphine sulfate is respiratory depression, especially in elderly and debilitated patients, and in those with compromised respiratory function. The most common adverse events (greater than 10%) were decreased oxygen saturation, hypotension, urinary retention, vomiting, constipation, nausea, pruritus, pyrexia, anemia, headache, and dizziness.
