Im not sure, if it even stands for anything. I noticed u listed in MS like multiple sclerosis. The MS Contin thi is just a brand name for morphine which is a narcotic pain med. the "MS" in MS Contin has no relevance 2 MS the neurological disorder... if thats y u were asking.

Hey Sixnineontime,

I always thought the MS stands for morphine sulfate while the contin refers to the fact that it is controlled release.
