THANK YOU DENISE
Hey wally, ms contin is a brand name version of morphine so4 and the generic is a pill made with cheaper chemicals. I have been told, and have experienced the effects of generic form of ms contin, generic ms contin lasts approx. 8hrs if you are lucky. And dr's know this. It all comes down to what kind of insurance you have. I am on medicare and I will get only generic. Hope this helps. Kpwilson
I know these are the same drug but I'd like to understand the withdrawal of this drug for chronic use: MS Contin. What is the best way to taper to dc? Is it better to DC or taper for 17 yrs of use or to taper this drug? The patient had used a pain cocktail for 17 yrs treating chronic pain which including Valium, MS Contin & hydrocodone. They successfully redused the Valium to 0, and suffered all of the typical side effects without seizureswith from the benzos, for at least 5 months. They had previously reduced the hydrocodone down from 20mg tid to 5,5, 10mg daily. The MS Contin was set at 30, 30, 45. Now at 30mg, 15mg, 45. They suffer from sleeplessness, joint pain, tingling, hypermotility of the gut. No diahrrea at this time. Feeling tired and a bit frustrated. No desire to up the dosage because they want to be off of this drug. Please advise on the course to withdraw the patient from this med-MS Contin. This put wishes to only take an as needed dosage of hydrocodone rather than all of the medication.
