MS Contin Overview

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family that is found naturally in a number of plants and animals, including humans.[7][9] It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to decrease the feeling of pain.[7] It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain and is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction, kidney stones, and during labor.[7] Morphine can be administered by mouth, by injection into a mu...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 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...
