For Chronic Pain: "I find this iteration of MS Contin to be worthless. I does nothing for my chronic pain. I would like to try a different brand but it is unavailable through the VA Medical Center I go to,"

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I can’t get through the day without it. While I used to take 200mg/day I’ve been cut back to the 90mg/day & find that while not loving it I can still manage. MSContin (& my breakthrough med which is also morphine based) is the only med that allows me to function & remain clear headed. I do experience some bowel motion problems so I take generic stool softener every day with meals & takes care of that. I’d recommend this to anyone with severe & constant, chronic pain."

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "After trying Percocet, OxyContin and several other types of pain medication my doctor prescribed me Kadian and by far this is the best medication I have ever used for my chronic pain from Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am on the low dose 10mg and it has outperformed the 40mg OxyContin I was on."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have been in pain for 30 years from My spinal cord is being over stretched since age 13. During my growth stage when your spinal cord lifts away from your lower back. I’m have spinalbifita acolta spinal canal does not make a full circle around your spinal cord it makes a C instead. A fatty lipoma grew through the C and attach it’s self into my spinal cord and tethered it to my bones and is cutting off blood flow to my nerves which is causing nerve damage and pain. I have been to more than 20 pain specialist there is no way to operate on it. So right now I’m on 6 Oxycodone 10mg , 3 morphine sulf ER75mg a day and 2 fentinayl patches 100 mcg/hr every 2 days Basically I’m on a huge amount of pain meds all narcotics a day. I’m now 44 I still have a huge amount of pain. What I have learned about all pain meds is you build up a tolerance to all of them after a while.There is no magic pill like morphine sulf ER.If you have enough pain nothing works good enough and you have to make it work."

MorphaBond ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I was prescribed this medicine after a surgical procedure on my arthritic hand. As recommended I took one in the morning that was supposed to last all day. I did not feel any relief whatsoever of my pain during the first week. I continued taking them and accidentally found one of the pills in my poop I took it out of the toilet and it was still enclosed in the thick plastic surrounding of the pills. When I opened the thick plastic cover the powdery substance was still inside. Needless to say I discontinued use. I would not recommend this medicine for anyone who is in real pain."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Works well I take it every 8 to 12 hrs and haven’t had as much pain. If I forget to take it it’s like starting all over again easing the pain. I wish I had this long time ago instead of going from meds to meds try to see what works. It’s scary taking it and reading up on it but from 1 to 10 I will give it a 8 so far it’s only been 2 months since I’ve been on this medication."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have been diagnosed with MS for 20 yrs. And just recently had back surgery I'm taking 30 mg morhine sulfate ER along with 10mg norcos for breakthrough pain. I'm 4 weeks post op and still having severe lower back pain and the morphine does not seem to be touching the pain which makes me take more breakthrough pain has anybody else had issues with morphine not helping?"

Oramorph SR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "This did not help my chronic pain at all. I had to use dosage of 30 -50MG of morphine and it still didn't touch my pain. I got severe constipation and was violently sick"

For Pain: "Iv'e tried almost everything and a low dose of morphine pills and injectables was only slightly better then a sugar pill. 4 mg IV and 15mg in a pill every 4 hrs wasn't useless but after a few years I couldn't tell if I hadn't taken it without the withdrawal cramps, yawns and teary eyes. Fentinal patches were like 20x stronger and I thought better until I wore it in a dry sauna. Good thing I wasn't alone or I might not be alive. I find a little soma, valium and methadone to be best. I just make sure I don't take the other 2 within a couple hrs of the methadone. When it gets worse or flares up a couple perk 5s with tylenol help almost as much as a massage and stretches. For sprains its all about ibuprophen and heat an ice for me. Jacuzzi baths an stretching help more then pills seem to most often. Methadone I know has possibly the worst detox tho."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Been on various opiates since my mid 20s and now I'm mid 50s. If I could choose what ever medicine I wanted for pain relief I would choose Morphine as it is the smoothest, longest lasting and consistent narcotic. Comes on slowly and has long legs. Avoid Oxy as it hits very quickly and falls off often randomly but always sooner. Morphine ER last a good 8 to 12 hrs. Worst side effect long term for me is constipation and occasional hot flashes. Together with Gabapentin and a muscle relaxer mask my sever back injury enough that I can avoid a major risky surgery."

For Pain: "Morphine was a true godsend after invasive cancer surgery! I had some unpleasant side effects like constipation, nausea, and vomiting that was controlled by zofran. The pain relief I got from morphine was totally worth it."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Many years ago, I chose medication over surgery to treat severe, chronic pain. Although dependency on pain medication has it's own problems, I still think it was a good choice. I have had almost 20 productive years that I would not otherwise have had. I have learned two things in those years. First, if you are taking Morphine ER, try to arrange your schedule in such a way that you have an hour or two to nap after you take your meds. This medication is more effective if you are sleeping or at rest as it takes effect. Second, avoid oxycodone or oxycontin [time-release oxycodone]. That medication rapidly looses effectiveness and becomes unreliable. For me, the best overall pain med has been Morphine ER. Hope this helps, and God bless."

For Chronic Pain: "Lower Back Pain /L4/5 region/surgery performed 2014 - condition improved but (as many would attest), never to be the same and pain free. This is what I don't understand (after getting into a car accident, having severe lower back pain and having been on many if not all (at one time and or the other), just about all (whether in the hospital and or outside of it on pain management), how some people can be on, for example, taking 4 10mg OxyContin pills day, ASIDE from lets say 2 60mg (or higher), extended release morphine tablets 12hr dosage), and *STILL* say that they barely get through and or say if they miss a dose, they get sick sick sick, real sick. I and almost everyone else MUST and really know....contin.."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Pain: "After years of lower back pain and 4 pain specialists, I finally found a doctor/team that listen and cared. Switched off of Norco, Vicodin, and numerous other opiates to MS Coton. Went from 60mg/3X a day to 15mg/2X a day and am relatively comfortable and pain free. I operate farm machinery and take care of livestock daily and have for the 5 years I have been on this medication. Never had an accident or made a mistake due to medication. I just hope/wish our politicians can see that these meds have benefits when appropriate and used correctly. They have given me the ability to function and make a living doing what I love."

For Chronic Pain: "I'm not going into all the details about what is wrong with me but my pain is bad enough that I take morphine sulfate 100mg three times a day, nucynta 100mg twice a day & soma 350mg 2XDay. Well what I'm wondering is has anybody ever had some hearing loss? I've also experience Moodiness, twitchy movements (occasionally) wondering if these are drug related problems?"

For Chronic Pain: "I was taking oxymorphone 30 they told me they were taking them off the market. I found out they are not taking them off the market but I was put on arymo 15 mg which is no where near as effective as oxymorphone 30 mg"

For Chronic Pain: "Morphine is typically administered in a hospital setting through IV. They take this route because pain relief is essentially instant. The main difference w/these coated pills, while they are a higher milligram (60mg), I was given anywhere from 2 to 4mg through my IV. Some would say the upside through your IV, is the instant relief (in the ER, that's the point),but the duration of relief (some say),is shorter than that of the pills, which by design are rated to last 12 hrs. The info along w/the script says the coating is there because it's an extended-release tablet, hence the 12hr rating for pain relief. They make an immediate release pill but for home use most dr's will script these. Sometimes norco is added for immediate relief as needed."

MS Contin (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I find this form of medication to be an extremely poor waste of money. I am able to control my severe chronic pain much better with the immediate form. Instead of having to try to adjust my dosage to match my level of pain which changes in a short period of time I am using a form that may take hours to stabilize. This is somewhat like using a blunt object rather than a sharp knife to deal with my pain."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "ZYDUS is the WORST brand MS ER 60 I have EVER been given in over 15 years!! It only works 8 hours instead of the 12 out is supposed to. No pharmacy should be using this. I have six large screws in my spine; L3-5, and suffer chronic and debilitating pain.I have never been given a generic that didn't work -until now. STAY FAR AWAY FROM ZYDUS !!!"

Kadian (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have been using Kadian for at least 9 years now. I haven't ever had the need to increase dosage, unlike Oxy etc. My pharmacy wholesaler stopped carrying Kadian a few months ago and I have been sick ever since. Headaches, loose bowels and G.I. distress. I am searching for Kadian without much luck."
