MS Contin Overview

Morphine (INN) (/mrfin/) (sold under nearly a hundred trade names) is an opioid analgesic drug, and the main psychoactive chemical in opium. In clinical medicine, morphine is regarded as the gold standard of analgesics used to relieve intense pain. Like other opioids, such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, and diacetylmorphine (heroin), morphine acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain. Morphine has a high potential for addiction; tolerance and psychological dependence dev...

Pain relief for stage IV lung cancer spread to spine, chest wall and adrenal gland
My oncologist thinks I take too much pain meds, 130 mg MS Contin , dilaudid 4mg, and Percocet for break through pain every 4 hours. The MS Contin is 2 times daily. After I take the MS Contin I start getting breakthrough pain about 1 1/2 hours. He said there is no way I can take that and be awake. Had to sign contract no one else can prescribe me pain meds. And I have to be subjected to drug panels to make sure I'm taking them! Hell yes I Am taking them. I just want some reliefs so my QoL will be better and I can live before I die. ## Hello, Mack64! How are you doing? I am so sorry that you're suffering and about the hassles your doctor is giving you. That is very unusual, they are supposed to liberal prescribing to cancer patients, with intractable pain, and you should be dosed ...

ms contin 15 mg blue
Please help. My friend gave me five of these meds. We didnt know her doc was going to count them. Does anyone know of a otc that may pass. Thanks ## No two meds look the same. When drs offices do pill counts, they know what the pills are suppose to look like. If any of the pills are different, they will call the pharmacy to verify that two different brands were used to fill the rx. ## So there is nothing i can do to try ? ## If the dr won't do a tox report the same day they do the pill count, she can take only 1 pill a day for 5 days to be sure she has enough for the count. But, it won't be pleasant for her. ## Does anyone know of an otc that looks like 15 mg ms contin ?

my friend gave 5 15 mg ms contin she just learned her doc is gonna count her meds
Is there a blue bill similar. Im worried she will get kicked out of pain mgmt. How closely do they check ? ## If there aren't exacly enough pills there, she will get kicked out of ain management. For example, if the directions say take 1 tablet twice a day and she got the rx on July 28 and they are going to be counted on Aug 13, she would need to have 32 pills. If she is sure that they won't do a tox report at the pill count she needs to just take 1 pill a day instead of 2 until she knows that she will have the correct amount at the pill count. ## Is there a pill that looks like 15 mg ms contin ?

15mg MS Contin 2x Daily & 10/325 Norco 8x Daily
Hi all...I have several bone fragments in my upper vertebrae from an auto accident 22 years ago (passenger) and more recently (2008) hit as a pedestrian and suffering from 8/9 mm disc bulges L5/S1 and 4th concussion 3 months ago. My lower back is obviously the worst area and I'm in the 8-9 "pain range" (severe/unbearable) on a daily basis. My GP had me on 12 10/325 Norco (APAP nightmare) for all of my chronic pain. We've tried numerous thing over the years but to no avail. The Norco was the only treatment within his realm of expertise (or what he was willing to keep me on w/out changing meds and upping my dose) that I believe he felt comfortable with. Forgot to mention that I had both epidural and facet IV's, PT and chiro, all with very short-acting results. Now, my ...

Mylan Ms Contin
My pharmacy was out of my regular brand ms contin, I had to wait a few days (they suddenly didn't have the medication I got there for over 10 years. seems strange to me. A day or two after I started taking these, my leg pain came back, I have burning pain all the time, with my regular brand ( I think they are by Purdue) small darker blue pills, I never had pain even if I overworked my leg. These new ones are larger and made by mylan, they seem to work ok in the morning, but the pain gets worse when I usually do things in the afternoon. The others stay with me all day, I start to get pain late in the evening a few hours before my next pill is due. I have learned to live with the others,got things I needed to be done, with these I can see me becoming a couch potato. Has anyone experie...

Pain Management Doctors in DELAWARE
I just moved to delaware and am looking for a dr.that will continue my pain meds! I have done unhections n pt n found tht meds work beat for me. For people in TRUE NEED of pain meds it is very difficult to find help! And they wonder why people have to find them on the street?! I would never go that route bit i can understand ## HI Kimberly, Unfortunately, no one can really know ahead of time what a doctor is or is not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's discretion and not on someone else's previous appointment (especially since many doctor's are now worried about losing their licensing for prescribing too many narcotics). Some advice I can give you is to not specifically ask for any 'specific medication' when you see a new doctor. Just make sure to...

Need Pain Management Doctor in or near SPRINGFIELD MISSOURI
I was wheelchair-bound & in constant, horrific pain for eight years despite 2 lumbar surgeries & a C-spine surgery. After my last lumbar surgery, a year in a nursing home with an excellent physical therapist and the right medication my pain was under control...I could finally get out of bed after 8 yrs, walk a half mile, live a relatively normal life...I was even considering a part-time job eventually. This was when I lived in California. 2 yrs ago I moved to Mountain Home AR to be with my sister. I immediately tried finding a doctor here but there was no one willing to help me. When I ran out of the meds I brought from California, I went through severe withdrawal, & back to the unbearable chronic pain for which I considered suicide many times. When Dr. Chatman & Tilley ...
