Has anyone switched from Suboxone to Morphine. I know it is usually the other way around?

I've been using Suboxone for chronic pain (altough not FDA approved for pain mgmt) My insurance will no longer cover it and I cannot afford it. My Dr. is switching me to the Morphine Sulfate ER which he saids there will be no withdrawals or noticable differance. Any comments would be appreciated...
Methadone 10mg are alot cheaper to buy out of pocket cash of about $20-$25 for a month's supply than Morphine are. And yes they are FDA Approved to treat Chronic severe pains very well and you can take one good dose in morning to last you all day & into next.
As long as the doctor does the conversion correctly, you should not experience any adverse effects from switching to morphine. In fact, you may find the extended release morphine works better.
No. If you were doing it the other way morphine to suboxone you'd have to go through some withdrawal before you could take them & get real sick but in my opinion the only thing you'd notice is the opiates since the suboxone blocks most of the buph's opiate effect.
Ive went from morhine to suboxone, you'll find morphine stronger (at least I did) pluss morphine the time released type are way less addictive than methadone. Good Luck and God Bless you
