MS Contin Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family that is found naturally in a dark brown, resinous form from poppy plant (Papaver somniferum). It can be taken orally or injected; it is also often smoked.[7][9] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to increase feelings of pleasure and warm relaxation and reduce pain, and is often abused for this purpose.[7] It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain and is frequently us...

Rhodes Ms Contin 100mg

So I've been taking these for 3 months now and they are not working well AT ALL!!! They're made by Rhodes pharmaceuticals. They are small light blue round pills with a 100 on them. Does anyone else have this problem or can anyone tell me what brand worked for them? I know EVERYONE reacts differently to meds but at this point I'm willing to try any other brand. Next month I'm going to ask my pharmacist to order me a different manufacturer. And by the way, MS CONTIN has SKYROCKETED up in price. I just paid $280.00 for 30 x 100mg pills (one a day) WTF!!! They used to be the cheapest med out there. I've read around and a few other people are saying the same thing so I hope it's not just me. ## Re: price, it looks like you're getting the actual brand filled. $280 ...

ms contin ER 100mg

11/1/2013 TROUBLE GETTING MS CONTIN 100MG ER FILLED? I have been to no less than 15 pharmacies and can not get this filled. I have 3 disc herniations and pain is round the clock. It's sad when the pharmacies tell you that it is "on back order" or "cant help you" etc. and they can see the Rx is valid from a respected Dr. I finally found a "specialty pharmacy" that handles meds that need compounding that filled 2/3 of my total Rx. I was told by an owner that the pricing of MS Contin has tripled in the last few months and there is no profit margin which the regular pharmacists are probably unaware of. I may be wrong but it almost seems like "price fixing" by the Pharmaceutical companies. Nine months (Jan to July) of regular prices and then triples? The p...

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...

Best generic MS Contin brands

Can anyone recommend a good brand for 100mg MS Contin? The last one I had was gray small and circular. But it did not seem to work very well at all. Does anyone here take these and maybe recommend the top 3 good companies that produce them? I KNOW EVERYONE Is different that's why I'm asking for 3 different brands. Please and THANK you. ## When I took it, I was taking the product manufactured by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, it worked very well for me, but that was years ago, and their products seems to be hit, or miss, for some people. The FDA warns that Morphine carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is anyone else aware of any good companies that manufacture it?

I was discharged from pain management cuz my exwife wrote the doc n said I was selling my pills. My UA was positive for opiates but he still discharge

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 If Ms Contin Got Wet

I take 30 mg MS Contin for cronic pain. Went to take it very early in the morning. Was several hours earlier than usual because i had woken around 4:30am in alot of pain! I was very sleepy and had the perscription bottle sitting next to sink as i started to fill my glass with water. i had one pill in hand and a glass in the other with the water running. As i leaned forward to fill my glass, i knocked my pill bottle over into the sink! At least 8 were really wet, a couple more were a lil wet. I know not to crush, cut, or chew them cause of the warnings on the bottle... but are they unsafe if they had gotten a lil wet? The 8 pills were too wet, but what of the others? I set them aside for now but dont know if i should even keep them or if they will make me sick if i take them. I will cont...

Expired Kadian/MS Contin

As a patient with decades of spinal OA, I have a drawer of old narcotics that didn't seem to work well at the time: less effectice, too strong... In fact what I have discovered, in an attempt to keep my doses low, rotating them works best for me. The question I have is how old is too old, and what is the result of expired time release narcotics. Do they simply become less effective? Dangerous? Does the time-release componant degrade in a way that makes taking it completely inadvisable. I am aware that, in general, pharmacutical companies give expiration dates that are geared to their financial needs, not necessarily chemistry. ## I need to know if taking expired Kadian is dangerous.14 months expired will it still work? ## Hi, my name is Chris. I also find rotating meds mainly opiate...
