For Chronic Pain: "Morphine medicine saved my life, gave me somewhat of a life that I do NOT have when NOT using Morphine. I've had a Severe Chronic Pain for 37 years, due to C1-C2 fusion not exactly in place right, & severe multiple head injuries. The only side effect I have had from it, is a slowed digestive system, but I have never had to use anything for the slowed digestive tract. It just angers me so when morphine medicine is so often talked bad about, as it saved my life, & it is one of the best medicines for how well it works when used correctly- & just like how all medicines should be used correctly. Nothing else has ever eased my pain at all like morphine medicine. I used two different doses for past 26 years, as first dose had never been enough."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I fractured C2 and C3 along with T4 and T5 in 1976, I had chronic pain 7/10 for close to 20 years 24/7, finally my doctor started me on a "pain contract" taking of MS Contin 60mg a day which went up to 100mg twice a day because of my tolerance, I was at that level for about 10 years with 60mg of Oxycodone X 2 a day, at this point in time I have reduced the MS Contin to 45mg once a day and 15mg Oxycodone X 2 a day for BT pain which works quite well for me, my level of pain has gone down from 7/10 & 8/10 to 4&5 /10 and have a decent quality of life again, I will most likely continue on this daily routine for a long time to keep my quality of life at these numbers..."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I began taking mscontin 30mg twice daily about 11 years ago due to a chronic pain condition caused by , in a large part , by lack of treatment due to no insurance. About 2 years into being on this medication it was increased to 60 mg twice daily and , 2 years ago , 100 m twice daily. This medication has always kept my level of pain at a point where I could function in a manner where my quality of life increased , although I am unable to work because my left arm is basically useless. It's main drawback for me is that like with all opioids tolerance does occur and dosing increases are sometimes necessary. I also take , for BT pain , tylenol #4 , 1 or 2 tabs every 4-6 hrs when required I would personally recommend this medication to anyone with chronic pain issues."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have osteoarthritis from head to toe. At a visit my Reumatoligist stated I had reached a point where I needed more help than she could provide & wanted me to go to a pain clinic--I had never heard of them. I began going there, they took several vials of blood. They wrote a script for 10mg of oxycodone for up to 4 a day. When I returned in 30 days. After reviewing my labs, they also wanted me to take Ms Contin,, 15mg morn & night. Was told I would not feel the effect for about 2 weeks. I was about to give up, but one morning got up & realized, wow my pain was down. Since I have pain medicine in my system 24 hours a day, plus can take my Oxycodone as needed, my pain is much more controlled. I know I will never be pain free, but its ok."

For Chronic Pain: "The morphine sulfate has been the best of all the trials my doc and I went through. Found out 7 years ago got massive damage from degenerative disc disease, stenosis and arthritis. After surgery and loosing 160 lbs the pain was just as bad or worse, so off to the pain management route my doc and I go. I must say that I am extremely fortunate to have a doc that is not afraid to help me. She and I have a great relationship. Mind you, I do my part, all clean drug tests, no early visits and follow the directives. I have a pain contract with her that I honor as well. We have been on 80mgOC/4 day, fentanyl 100mcg/48hrs. and everything in between. The morphine is what I have been on the longest and has by far worked the best. Been on it for 4 years. Pain Sucks.."

MS Contin (morphine) for Pain: "I am retired, but still read and do many other activities. I was taking MsContin 30mg 3x and Oxycodone IR 10mg 4x per day. I stopped reading and crocheting. I stopped watching my favorite programs. I never knew when I was going to fall asleep. I became hostile, angry, depressed, paranoid and had substantial memory loss. I stopped talking to people and was tired all the time. I didn't connect it to my pain medication because I have numerous chronic illnesses. Last year my doctor suggested a change to Oxycontin, but I was afraid. A month ago I started taking Oxycodone IR 10mg four times a day and Xtampza 18mg three times per day. I wish I had done it sooner. I have eat a good meal with the Xtampza but,I am awake and my real personality is back. My energy is up."

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Kadian has been an amazingly‚Äč helpful medication for me. I take 14 medications daily, four of those medications are for severe pain. And until the doctor added Kadian the pain just was not giving me any breaks. I have been on Kadian for about four years now I would rather die than miss even one dose as it's that important to the quality of my life. To be fair I do have some side effects I consider to be mild and not worth even mentioning one thing to say that is important I am physically addicted to this medicine missing a dose makes me sick sick sick but then again I don't miss doses anyway because of my pain levels however the pharmacy doc or insurance will mess up once in awhile so I do suffer missing doses once in awhile"

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Just started this medicine for my spine arthritis and knee arthritis It takes away the pain pretty well. I am only on 15MG. Only problem I have is it make me feel light headed and jittery at times. But, as far as getting rid of the pain, it is doing the job so far."

For Chronic Pain: "Machine guns are heavy & so is everything else in life. But my broken body hurts from the moment I wake up till sleep. Like one guy said, no doc in Ky will help you, so I have to self medicate. I have taken just about everything known for pain, I have been thru it all. All of these new drugs Roxy's 10-20-30 mg's are meant to get you hooked, Hooked and still in pain. But I never have pain or withdraws when I take these 15mg extended release. If you have a tolerance you'll need at least 30-45mg's in one dose. honestly, these are without a doubt the best for pain I've taken thus far. No buzz & no pain"

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Pain: "I am on 2 100mg Morphine Sulfate ER tablets daily. I have been on this for about 2½ years now. It does work well for my pain (blow disc and sciatica in lower back, and Severe RA), but I am very concerned about a side effect that I am having. My teeth are breaking apart. I had a great set of teeth before I started taking the morphine. Now, after just a little over two years, I have lost 2 molars completely and have 3 molars that are broken and falling apart. My teeth are also starting to stain badly, no matter how much I brush them. My molars are constantly causing me a lot of pain. After researching a bit here online, I now realize that it is the morphine causing my teeth to just break and fall apart. Any Help Please???"

For Chronic Pain: "I'm trying to find whether instant release morphine pills will be better than what I am currently taking..I am 26 and after an injury at work I found out I have degenerative disc disease, at first I was on an array of meds and now I take 30mg OxyContin 2x a day, but same as all long release pills it doesn't kick in for 3 hours, makes me sicker than a dog only lasts for a few hours and just all around killing my life. I found that 10mg oxycodone pills 4 times a day work 10x better but my doctor clearly stated he won't give them to me and kept me on the OxyContin. I was just wondering on the comparison of oxy 10mg and the morphine so I can state my case to my back specialist next month."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I had tried all the short term meds; like hydrocodone, oxycodone, ect. Over half my back and neck, the pads in between the vertebra are crushed or not there at at. My Dr. Put me on 60mg MS CONTIN 4 TIMES, on a 24 hour period. With hydrocodone as a break through, short term med. l need not say I rarely touch the hydrocodone. Sometimes I only take 2 or 3 MS CONTIN A DAY. MS CONTIN 60mg is the best long term for me, thank GOD FOR 60mg MORPHINE,, PAIN FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

For Pain: "I have been given no other choice but to self medicate! I have a spot on my brain and a cyst on my brain stem and in my spinal column, in my neck from a car wreck that give's me intense pain, as well as headaches where I feel I would be better of dead and gone, than to suffer while...no doctor in Kentucky will help, to them everyone is a junkie! which is just WRONG,...I suffer to where a GROWN man sits and cries! so I will do what I have to do for pain relief! It helps when a man REALLY needs it! I know I am NOT the only one!"

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Kadian is AMAZING! I've been a pain sufferer for decades. I suffer from spinal stenosis/spindylosis; cervical neuralgia, etc. I've had multiple cervical fusions (anterior & posterior) with hardware. Anyone who's been through multiple fusions knows the pain changes, but never truly goes away. Pain was somewhat manageable with MS Contin, but I would still "pay" for it if I ever pushed myself, traveled, etc. Since 1998, I never had more than a week or two between moderate/severe pain flare-ups. Since kadian, I've gone as long as 3 months without one! I even flew to Europe for a 10 day vacation (which was a ton of walking/sitting) without any issues! Kadian works and works AWESOME!"

MS Contin (morphine) for Pain: "I have degenerative disc disease and had spinal fusion and stenosis surgery in my lower back. For years I have been on Norco 7.5mg/325 (1 pill 4x a day as needed.) and for the most part that took care of my pain. Roughly the past year my dr decided to reduce the Norco by half and added MS Contin. 15mg 1 pill twice a day. It didn't help much. For me it takes the MS Contin three hours for me to notice any difference and it only helps for about six hours leaving three hours before I can take another. He upped it to 30mg in the morning and 15mg at night. Still not seeing anything different. This Friday I am going to ask him if I can just go back on the Norco at my old regiment. It seemed to work better for me then these extended release meds."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I've tried MS Contin a few times over the years and finally given up. What I really liked was good pain control without the euphoria or crash of IR products like oxycodone. What I didn't like was, after a few weeks, developing hallucinations and delusions that were so... real. I actually listed it as an allergy on my med records. Others tolerate it well. I'm not them though. Morphine derivatives like Dilaudid cause me no problems. It sucks, and is terrifying, to wake up convinced the bed is covered in spiders, to the point of seeing them. Not for me."

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have been using Kadian for about 5 years and it has kept my pain at bay. I was recently switched to Morphine and the pain that drives me crazy came back well before I could take another pill (8 hr). I found this intolerable and went back to the Kadian. As of Jan. of 2017 the only thing my doctor says I will be able to get is EMBEDA. I have not tried it yet but was denied coverage by my insurance. The DEA should not interfere with patients getting their proper medication!"

Infumorph (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006, but I'm fairly sure it was there for at least another 10 years prior. I have a carer and I'm really grateful for the family I have and their unadulterated kindness. I don't know where I'd be without them. Over the last decade, I have been put on more medicines than I can count. Pain relief; everything from diamorphine epidural to tramadol; or ketamine to fentanyl. Having never been one to rely overly on medicine. Oxycodone HCL (Shortec) worked very well for about 2 years, then the doctor upped the dose 50% with minimal benefit. I have been prescribed oral morphine liquid, slow release capsules which work consistently as a medicine, particularly the ampoules. Minimal side effects, huge relief."
