I'm going to ask my Dr to put me on ms contain which pill would good with this med for break through pain?. I'm currently taking 6 Percocet a day for chronic pain and neck and back pain.
You may not need anything else if you are put on the MS cotin
Some Dr's will give you something for break through pain but not always
Percocet is one of the many drugs that can be used
Please be careful with the long acting drugs as I have seen a ton of patients that overdose and never even know they are in trouble with these Meds because there is no immediate effect but an hour later are in acute respiratory distress.
Pain Medicine is truly an art and a science as every patient can respond differently
Take care of you
Unless you've got a really good relationship with your Dr asking for a specific need will make him think you're a drug seeker. The best drug for breakthru pain when on ms contin is morphine ir. Try to get him to stay away from the meds with tylenol in them. Long term regular use can cause liver damage.
Ms Contin should generally not be used for breakthrough pain. MS Contin is a extended release drug that should be used for managing longer lasting chronic pain. Immediate release drugs are more suitable for episodes of break through pain. You always want to limit the amount of immediate release pain medication that you use for breakthrough pain to a minimum. It is much more preferable to manage your base line chornic pain with extended resale type of drugs.
