MS Contin Overview

Morphine (INN)/mrfin/), sold under many trade names, is a pain medication of the opiate type. It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain. It can be used for both acute pain and chronic pain. Morphine is also frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction and during labour. It can be given by mouth, into a muscle, under the skin, intravenously, into the space around the spinal cord, or rectally.[2] Maximum effect is around 20 min when given intrav...

I picked up my script and was given different pills. my script is for oxycontin but i think these are morphine. They are small orange round pills with ABG on one side and 60 on the other... what are they?? any help would be great. ## you are correct-it's morphine 60 mg or aka MS Contin ## Yes, Greg is correct. The same answer was also posted in a related discussion thread. It seems like this is commonly being mistaken as Oxycontin when it is in fact Morphine Sulfate CR 60 mg. Please feel free to post back if there are any other questions or information to add about this. ## AS A RULE OF THUMB ms& oxy after ten mg is oxy goes 10 20 40 80 160 mg ms cotin would be 15 30 60 and 100 mg ## purple or dark blue size of ms cotin 30 mg blank on one side S193 on outher was with my ms 100 m...

In 1998 I had a winged scapular after surgery.
3 Replies RSS
My neurologist at that time. He put me on MS contin. In 1998, I was out of my mind in pain. I stopped taking the ms contin. I didn't fill the last Rx for my pain. I called my neurologist and told him that I wasn't taking it anymore. He said I was a good girl. I thought that painful experience was over. I was Dx with ms in 2004. I'm in pain again. The worst pain I ever had was from the winged scapular. My new neurologist told me that he will never give me pain medicine because I took ms contin and I could have gotten addicted to it. My leg hurts a lot now. I have never been treated like trash like this guy is doing to me now. I have ms fatigue. He doesn't want to see my medical records from my previous neurologist. I don't know what this guy is thinking. I should be a...

MS Contin/Oxycontin vs. Butrans Transdermals
4 Replies RSS
Hi, first of all, thank you in advance for all your assistance! I have been in 2 different car wrecks, as well as a 2 time cancer survivor. I've recently had to switch doctors as my PCWORLD has closed her practice. Anyways, I was able to find another PCP, but he has switched my pain medication from Oxycontin 60 mg ER 2x's daily to MS Contin 60 mg ER 2x's daily, he did keep my Percocets 7.5/325 2x's daily for breakthrough. Obviously the MS Contin does not work as well. My question is, he has recommended me to switch to Butrans (buprenorphine) transdermal patches. Is anyone familiar with this and if so, could you please tell me of your experience, i.e. does it work; what are the pros &/or cons. Thank you! ## I would advise you to get back on oxycontin rather than ms co...

MS Contin and breakthrough pain
6 Replies RSS
I am taking 15mg MS Contin 4 times a day and I still have several periods of severe pain that come out of nowhere. They usually last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and can be so severe that they bring me to my knees. Could this be breakthrough pain? I have an appointment with my pain doctor in the morning, but I want to see what others think so I can try to be prepared when I talk to him. I want to ask for something for these periods of severe pain. What works best with MS Contin? Thanks for your help! ## Yes, breakthrough pain is quite normal for someone to experience, when they suffer from something that causes severe and/or chronic pain. There are several medications that you can try to help with it, when it hits like that. Most doctors usually use an instant release medication ...

ms contin CR 60 mgs
1 Reply RSS
I'm on hydrocodone 7.5 and my doctor also gave me MS Contin 60mg CR.. If I completely stop my hydrocodone will I have any withdrawals while taking the MS Contin CR as prescribed? 1 a day.. Or can I take 2 MS Contin per day?? ## Hello, Heather! How are you? You should only take it as prescribed, so if your doctor has noted once daily, then you shouldn't exceed that, without their approval. Hydrocodone and Morphine are equivalent on a one to one ratio, so no, you shouldn't experience any withdrawals on the 60mg dose. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Moving to Florida

As most of you here, I've been taking MS Contin 60 mg and Oxycodone IR for break through among other meds of course. I have had RSD/CRPS for 26 years and Lupus for about 5 years. I live in PA now and never really considered the ramifications of moving to a state with such pain med issues. Due to job loss I've had to reschedule my meds taking fewer of them and being in worse pain. I don't want to find just a prescribing doctor. I want to continue my treatment. Any advice? ## I moved back to Panama City Beach, FL, in 2012 after moving away in 2003. In TN, where we moved from, I was on Hydrocodone 10/325 and Opana, so 2 opiates. When I moved here, the first neurologist I saw told me that she didn't like to give 2 opiates at the same time. So, I suffered through the pain for...

chronic pain - I've been thrown under the bus

First I'll just say that I will try to describe this very difficult situation simply as I can. I'm 54 years old I've done construction and maintenance most of my entire adult life. I had spinal fusion surgery in 2005. I had blown out my back way before 2005 but that was a result of my heavy lifting and going up and down stairs a thousand times a day and just doing heavy construction wheelbarrows full of cement. and just all phases of construction. also I had rotator cuff injury which resulted in not one but two arterial bypass surgeries won the first being a plastic type thing that was installed in my arm elbow and shoulder which year later it failed so either cut my arm off because it's not working anymore or remove the arterial vein in my left leg from my knee to my gr...

I need to find find a docor but noone will treat me I was doing fine on mscontin 40 mg three times a day and ms contin 15 mg a day for breakthrough pain I've never sold my meds I need them I can barely stand up straight my wife has to get me out of bed put me to bed I've lost 4 jobs in 9 years.. please what can I do? ## Hi ed, Sorry to hear about what happened between you and your ex wife. I'm no relationship expert here, but if I could suggest anything at all, the first thing I would personally do in such a situation is completely cut any ties with your ex, since that's where the problem seems to be stemming from. If they decided to keep her letter on file under your name, then it may be a good idea to really try and work with other doctors to regain some level of trust...

what do you when your dr of over 10 years retires and cant find another because have chronic pain take ms contin for
9 Replies RSS
I have chronic pain and my dr. prescribed ms contin for me around 10 years ago. Now my dr. has retired and I cant find a dr. to see me because of the meds. I have no idea what to do and am scared. What do I do? ## I would suggest going to a Pain Management Clinic. There most likely is one nearby, as they are popping up everywhere due to the need to control narcotic medication levels. Many family doctors will not prescribe narcotic pain medicine to use long-term. Most doctors will refer you to a Pain Clinic to manage your pain. You should be able to talk to someone in his office, assuming it is still open, and they can refer you to a Pain Clinic. If not, get out the phone book, call one, and sed if you can make an appointment without a referral. Make sure you take a list of all your medi...
