My neurologist prescribed Oxycontin 20mg 3xday. I can only get brand. I have been taking it for months and doesn't help. I am afraid of fillers put in to it. I am looking for substitute ER. My insurance covers MS Contin ER. Does anyone think this is a better way to go? Please reply as I will ask my doctor on 19th? Sue

It's OxyContin and it doesn't work probably because it's time released. The MS Contin sucks the OxyContin is definitely better so if your having problems with it ask your doctor for a imitate release med like oxycodone to go with the OxyContin I take both myself no exstend release med works well without a immediate release meds also

Hello Sue, sorry your having trouble. This oxycontin is as said above is time release, and is made to be abuse deterrent, which makes it almost useless to those who need pain relief, honestly I'd just use the oxycodone / roxicodone , it is seriously habit forming so please be careful. . With the opiate abuse running rampant these days and new laws coming into effect it's getting hard for legitimate chronic pain patients to get relief. Please use caution , I believe there's another brand/type of an oxycontin drug out xtempa or something of the such I'm surprised someone hasn't brought it up to you . I'll look into it and get you some information on it .
God bless and good luck

I had that feeling, they ruined most of the decent strong pain killers , I went to the oxycodone way and they took control of me so I had to go a whole other direction. It's a tough world for those of us who suffer chronic pain these days, good luck to all , and I hope you get relief soon

You say & all know Morphine sulfate continues to suck and that's all I can get. So I should say to pmd it sucks. What do you think he would say?
