morphine for Chronic Pain: I have been taking morphine 60ER, 30ER, 15ER for 15 months. It is working for me. My status is Arthrodesis, also have chronic Myofascial Pain syndrome, Degenerative Disc Disease, Spondylolisthesis, Lumbar Radiculopathy, 2 surgeries. Recent surgery L4-L5 Pedicle Fusion and PLIF and deformed S-1 . 7 months out no bone growth lots of pain. Live a lot better with this medicine. Walk better still not fit for duty, still wear brace and walk with cane, only 36.
Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I have a crushed unhealed ankle for nine and half years. I feel everything in my bones. I've taken morphine sulfate all this time because it's the only thing that works. Everything else makes me dizzy.
Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I was on Kadian for a few years and this medicine worked well for me. If the doctors prescribe it the right way (increasing the dosage every month or so) then it can be a very effective medicine. Sadly after several years I was switched to Opana.
MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: After years of just plain Percocet 10/325, Ms-Contin is a miracle. I can actually feel like a human being again. I've had C3, 4 & 5 fused. C1 & 2 are in bad shape and they are scared to perform any more surgery. My left rotator cuff is "gone" and irreparable. Rothman Institute said it will only get worse, nothing more can be done. Right rotator cuff is not as bad, still have 2 surviving (barely) tendons. Both knees are destroyed and will soon need replaced. Ms-Contin with 10mg Oxycodone 3 x daily for breakthrough pain have given me my life back again, (as much as possible.)
MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I had a spinal stroke 8 months ago, spinal cord infarction, that has left me in a wheelchair, and around the clock pain. I begin taking Ms Contin in December, 15mg 2x a day, along with Tramadol, Lyrica, and Percocet 10/325. I was able to cut way back on the Percocet and Tramadol once I begin the morphine, and have been able to continue so until the middle of March. My pain is not responding as well since my tolerance has obviously increased. I have talked to my doctor about this and am going to go up to 30mg twice daily beginning in April. Morphine has allowed me to pretty much cut out two pain medications while providing a more consistent pain relief.
morphine for Chronic Pain: I was on morphine sulfate 15 mg ER for 3 months for the treatment of chronic pain. I knew we were on the right track when I was able to have a somewhat normal life. Now I'm up to 30 mg 2 times a day with a pain level of 2.
MS Contin (morphine) for Pain: I experience a slipped disc years ago and after a few injections I was still in pain so I was treated with physical therapy, tramadol, OxyContin, and finally morphine. The MS Contin was a God send! I take 2-60mg MsContins a day with 4-15mg instant release for breakthrough pain. Although I only get 8-9hrs relief from a 12 hr pill. I feel 3 times a day for MsContin would keep my levels more steady, but my doc is reluctant to increase it. Sometimes I feel a little tired but the quality of my life has improved dramatically without the high drugged feeling and mood swings of other opiates.
Avinza (morphine) for Chronic Pain: Took for chronic pain of knee, back had half of 2 vertebra removed and fibromyalgia. This medicine did not work at all for me. I have taken oxycodone and methadone for pain and they made things bearable. This medicine did no good at all. I was only given 20 mgs a day after 80mg a day methadone and 80mg oxycodone. This is all the pain clinic would prescribe so I had to go back to methadone that makes me gain weight and my teeth are rotting out but I can function and have relief of pain. Still have pain but I can bear it.
MSIR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I have chronic severe cervical and Lumbar pain post multiple surgeries. I was prescribed MSIR for break through pain. It works quickly and extremely well. MSIR is morphine instant release.
Avinza (morphine) for Chronic Pain: It worked great on my Hyper-Mobility Syndrome! (All of my joints are "double-jointed") Which causes chronic pain for years & gets worse with age. The only side effect I've had is constipation. With Avinza I actually have a better quality of life!

Morphine Sulfate IR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: Morphine sulphate IR does help me to function on a daily basis. I take it in conjunction with MScontin. I suffer from fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, carpal tunnel, herniated discs, ruptured discus, and I also have hepatitis C. Therefore taking anything containing Aspirin or Tylenol would compromise liver health. I also have chronic pancreas. I am afraid to have surgery, I have blood drawn every 3 months to check my liver function checked. I have remained in remission for over 3 yrs this time. I did have a bout of pancreatitis 2 months ago. I don't drink alcohol either.
MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I have spinal stenosis, two herniated lumbar discs (inoperable due to location and prior surgery). This medicine allows me at least to get out of bed on most days, and use either my quad cane or walker.

Morphine Sulfate SR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: I've had bulging disc stenosis and bone spurs. I take oxycodone, which made me itch so they gave me morphine 60 ER. They work very well for me. I take 15mgfor breakthrough pain.
morphine for Pain: I had infection from a bad tooth. It was the only thing that helped while I was in the hospital being treated with IV antibiotics. It gave almost instant relief and I was able to sleep and recover well.
