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.

The "MS"= morphine sulfate. Contin=continuous

Hey Sixnineontime,

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

You are right Laurie! MS stands for morphine sulfate and the contin is continuous release.
