MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Very good medication (as they go) for chronic,intractable back pain. Works well with NSAIDs to keep pain at a tolerable level, without frequent dose changing. Needs to have a breakthrough med with it. Fast acting morphine a good choice."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "This medication gave me my life back! I'm 20, been dealing with chronic testicular and pelvic pain from a sports injury (I tore a muscle in my pelvis which radiates pain to the scrotum). I can't begin to describe how wonderful MS Contin works for my pain. I was on OxyContin 30 mg twice a day and it provided no relief. It was also outrageously expensive. My pain doctor switched me to MS Contin 30 mg twice a day and it's been a Godsend and a lifesaver! It brings my pain down from an 8/10 to a 4/10 and lower! I can now function throughout the day, work, go out places, and spend time with friends. It's affordable, no side effects, and it even gives me a lift!"

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "15mg 3x a day ER. I've been trying to find the right medication to treat fibromyalgia pain. I've experienced nearly every side effect, worst being respiratory problems and weight gain. My attitude has been poor and I'm completely miserable. It's increased my depression. For all the horrible side effects I've experienced, it doesn't seem worth it to stay on the medication for MINOR pain relief. The same has happened to me with Lyrica (neurontin with a prettier name) and tramadol ER. Morphine is by far the worst. I gave it 2 weeks but I can't take anymore of the nausea and illness this medication has caused. I took a morning dose today and feel ill, as usual. I can't wait to flush this garbage from my system."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have been taking Vicodin for near 20 years now due to chronic pain in my lower back and chronic pain & burning in my shoulders from Factory work.I have been on six 7.5 Vicoprofens for a few years now. That amount works fine if I just sit around all day. If I want to take long hikes, Lift or move furniture, do extensive house cleaning then 6 is NOT enough and I was using 7 or 8 a day. Doctor wanted me to try Morphine ER 15MGs..2 a day and try to get down to 3 Vs a day. A month into this trial period and I'm not liking the Morphine ER (and I've tried 300MG Tramadols & Butrans Patches) The morphine just leaves me feeling sleepy, it just takes the edge off and like so many other medicines ,I have FLU like symptoms. If I had 10 mg pills that would work."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Have been taking Er 120mgs 3x a day, with 60mg. For break through pain. I suffer from chronic spinal stenosis with acachnoditis. That being a progressive disorder. After many different Doctors rx not helping' went to pain management clinic. I was inpatient for 4-5 days till they finally found right drug & most important dose. I Do take 60-90mg for breakthrough pain. It works so well. Bless those Dr's that took the time & effort to find answers. I am on same dose for awhile now. The only side effect is bad constipation. I use a stool softener . What a relief to finally have a decent quality of life finally."

MS Contin (morphine) for Pain: "I have had chronic, constant migraine for 40 years, complicated by Fibromyalgia which added all over body pain. After years with various short acting pain meds like Lortab and Percocet, my doctor finally tried OxyContin first (worked, but I got tolerant very quickly) and finally MS-Contin, with Percocet as my breakthrough med. My life changed immediately. I take 30mg MS 4 times per day, with up to 3 Percocet. This dosage has not changed in 15 years, and allowed me to return to work full time. I have a (relatively) normal life with occasional days that are bad. MS-Continue was not available in generic form when I started and cost a huge amount every month. Happily, it's generic now and extremely affordable. It saved my sanity."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "MS Contin 200mg x2 am/ 2pm, Allows me to function more than without it. I'm actually out of the bed more than before I started. I don't get the highs & lows of taking short acting pain meds around the clock. I get a steady release of pain control. Of course I have breakthrough dilauid 8mg tabs as needed. I have Chronic Pain, multiple Lumbar Spine Fusions, Cervical Spine Compression ( all levels) Currently advised to get total Cervical Fusion, but didn't get medical approval for surgery. This medicine is a life preserver!"

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Had been on time release OxyContin, 20 mg., 2x daily for 2.5 years for severe neuropathy and arthritis in both feet. But insurance changed and had to switch to MS Contin's generic, Morphine ER, 30mg., twice a day. Was dubious this would be as effective as OxyContin, but has worked like a charm! Been on it for a year now, same dosage. Before time-release pain meds, I was in SO much pain. Now, I'm nearly pain free and its given me my life back. I can't do too much strenuous walking, but can do things like run errands or take my daughter to the mall. I'm in the process of talking to my dr. about something for breakthrough pain, which hits when I overdo it, or sometimes around the 10 hour mark, and have 2 hours to wait."

Duramorph (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I was given this right after surgery from a car accident; it made me really sick and the side effects kept me crying the whole time I was on it. It did help with the pain a little, but not enough to counter the side effects!"

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Kadian is a life saver when I have "break-through" pain. I use to take it every day, but the pain clinic I went to, was adding too many meds, we had an argument, and I left. My primary care doctor, knowing I have 4 fused cervical discs with the titanium plate, is still "afraid" to prescribe. We agreed on 20mgs of oxycodone BID, down from 30mgs TID. I have suffered for a 16 months, and many more visits to my osteopath, who is so gifted. He "GETS IT", and thinks no doctor, should judge my situation, and make me feel like an addict. I am going to request, he re-prescribe 60mg of KADIAN, for "break-through" pain. Last week (1) 60mg Kadian, STOPPED my spine pain, 100%. Glad I saved (8) from 2 years ago. THANK YOU KADIAN~"

I'm on disability. I can at least walk for longer than 10 minutes now. I know I should be on something a bit stronger but here in Michigan doctors a very reluctant to prescribe due to those who abuse! "

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "This medication was a life saver in the fact that it returned my quality of life back to me. I was on this medication for over 5 years at 30mg twice daily; never needed an increase in dosage. What I loved most about this medication was that it was a great pain reliever without the typical "high" feeling of opiates. When insurance didn't cover the medication, I was able to find it at a hospital (Non profit) pharmacy for around $30/month. The only downside to this medication is coming off of it. I came off of it when I was pregnant and felt withdrawals for the longest I've ever felt withdrawals from an opiate. The next time I came off of it, I quit cold turkey, which reduced withdrawal time in half."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Taking MS Contin 30mg four times a day for over five years. I use 4mg Hydromorphone for immediate release, breakthrough pain when and if needed. Usually (if needed) the Hydromorphone dose required is about 8 mg. Because I am taking these medicines for a serious back injury in which I suffered 3 crushed vertebra, occasionally the pain gets out of control. Usually after ill-advised physical activity at a level beyond that which I am accustomed to. At those times it often requires the MS Contin and a dose of Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) to bring the pain back to a controlled level. When taking MS Contin and Hydromorphone together, there is a period of drowsiness that passes in about 1/2 hour. I just make sure I am not driving or out and about if such a dose is needed."

Morphine Sulfate IR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "After getting a bad infection meningitis I had some long term damage. I have migraines daily and fibromyalgia and interstitial cystitis. I can't take most pain medication because it can make it worse. Morphine is the only one that has worked for me & I'm able to live a life! It's been 7 years and my dose has stayed the same. I take morphine sulphate IR 30, 3 times a day. No side effects no more. I can drive & it doesn't affect daily activities. But be careful it causes constipation. So if you are on it I recommend that you take a stool softener & vitamins."

For Pain: "I have 6 bad discs with degenerative bone and disc disease. I have been on Morphine Sulfate for over 5 years. I started on Methadone then went to Oxy's while the morphine still helps, the the dosage 30mg x 3 daily plus Norco 10/325 along with muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medicines. I live a much more productive live. The morphine is awesome!"

For Chronic Pain: "I have had back problems for a very long time, female trouble (hysterectomy @ 31 yrs old) and fibromyalgia. Also have severe arthritis (runs in our family I believe) As 4 rating this medicine, it helped tons with the pain but the downside (very bad downside) was after taking it for so long when you stop you get so very sick. In my opinion, the sickness is worse than coming off of Percocet, Vicodin, etc. Don't know why that is but that's just what I expect for myself. I know all about slowly cutting down your doses and all and I surely didn't expect it 2 be rainbows and sunshine, but in my experience it was worse than the DT's you get from the others I mentioned. Aside from that, it did help with the pain a great deal."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Morphine Sulfate ER 15 mg. I have been using this for approximately 6 months. I find that many of the side effects listed have become apparent to me. I do experience: shakiness, constipation, elevated liver enzymes, difficulty urinating, uncontrollable sleepiness, blurred vision, sensitivity to bright lights at nighttime, including some indoor lighting. In addition, I suffer from stomach pain, feel lethargic at times, memory loss, lack of desire to socialize, depression, and other minor events that I did not have prior to taking morphine."
