Substitute for Oxycontin ER

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 ## If anyone has info on substitute for Oxicontin ER 20mg 3 x day please suggest. This med does not work and I am afraid of fillers. They r dangerous. Would MS contain ER be better? I am seeing my neurologist on 19th. My insurance covers this med. Any suggestions would be helpful. 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 d...

new drug prescribing laws

I have been seeing the same pain management doctor in Ohio for over 12 years for degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy and sciatica. She put me on 60mg MS Contin ER q 12 and 5-10 mg Oxycodone prn for break through pain. Now she tells me that I have to wean down to 60 mg Morphine Equivalent per day because of the new federal laws. I was able to enjoy an active lifestyle and now at 60 mg bid I am miserable and unable to do or enjoy anything. She is forcing me to go to a neuropathology doc for more injections, ablations and physical therapy which I have been through many times before without success. I worked in surgery for 36 years and refuse to go that route because most of the patients had multiple surgeries, each one making them worse. Is she being honest about these laws or jus...

switch from ms contin to opana will i get withdrawal

I have been taking ms contin 15 mg twice a day for a few months and raking it about 4 or 5 times a day the last 4 days since i ran out of my norco.my pain dr switched me to opana er 10mg every 12 hours and By some miracle i got it filled today i just wondered if i will have withdrawal from the ms contin even though im still taking the norco and opana. I know before my dr told me if i was still taking opiates i would not get any withdrawals but i ran out kf norco before and had only a little ms contin and had a horrible headache and a little stomach ache so i am sure that is not true i am just afraid as i will be travelling in the next 2 days to visit sick relative. ## No, you shouldn't suffer withdrawals with this dosage, because your doctor has actually raised it. You only need 5mg...

What do you when your dr of over 10 years retires and you can't find another?

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...

MS Contin prescription withdrawal

Im a 58 yr old woman. I'm bipolar, reclusive and my husband is an over the road trucker. 4 years ago i was put on Percocet 10/325. The dr missed a broken shoulder bone so i switched Drs who added MS Contin. I had rotator cuff surgery but within 3 months I went to bed at Thanksgiving and woke up at the hospital on Xmas. I had severe pneumonia - they induced the coma as my oxygen was mid 60s, and after 3 chest tubes failed, they had to go in and physically debride my lung. So besides shoulder to wrist pain I have phantom nerve pain over that scar. My dr told me the nerves cant connect. I don't take street drugs, nor seek drugs, but my vision is bad and my husband left a tablet in a dish by my chair which i thought was a Percocet and took it. Well, it wasn't. I knew i was going...

Ms Contin Patient Assistance

I am on medicare in Wisconsin. I am on ms contin er 15mg tablets. I get them at cvs. I'm wondering if there is any way to get them cheaper? Seems like discounts aren't often allowed on medicare. ## Hi Jet, I'm not sure if Medicare allows patients to use pharmacy coupons in conjunction with their service, but I did want to add that MedsChat offers a free Rx Savings Card that can be used at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide for an average discount of 15-75% off your medication. It might be worth presenting it at your next refill just to see what the dollar cost comes out to. If the savings outweighs what medicare provides, it may be practical to use it instead. Another idea is to ask the pharmacy about any patient assistance programs that the manufacturer offers (if any). I ho...

MS Contin no longer available at pharmacies

I need to find a pharmacy near my house in Dunedin Florida that carries ms contin 60 milligrams that I can pay for with my United Healthcare Community Plan Mplus. Is MS Contin no longer available at pharmacies in Pinellas County? How can I find a pharm availability of ms contin 60 milligrams in Pinellas County, Florida? ## Hello, Karen! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having. There are a couple of problems going on that have contributed to the current shortage and I'll explain them for you… The first thing that happened is mainly exclusive to the east coast and mostly in Florida… pharmacies have a set limit of how much they can order and keep in stock each month of any controlled substance, once they run out for the month, they are not allowed to ord...

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...

MS Contin and breakthrough pain

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 ...
