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: "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."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I have tried several different pain meds.I had 2 discs in my neck replaced in 2008 and have a neck fusion. I also have severe and chronic pain. It's unbearable at times. I take 60mg ER one in morning and one at night. It's the only thing that lets me function and xanax 2mg relaxes the muscles in my neck and back. I find it works better if I take 1 and lie down for about 20 minutes to let it work better then I'm good til evening. I wouldn't be able to get out of bed without them. It really takes my pain away like nothing else ever. I've been on it for about 7-8years."

Morphine Sulfate SR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "I get the generic brand from Teva and take two 60mg tabs in the a.m. and two 60 mg tabs in the evening. I find that the generic wears off too early probably 1 and 1/2 hours early and when pain is severe l need something else as well. Maybe the generic is not as good as brand name so l wish l could try the brand name so l can find out."

Oramorph SR (morphine) for Chronic Pain: "Very similar to MS Contin before manufacturer added a second drug-release regulating feature to the matrix. I found that every 12 hours allowed too low a trough in between doses, so my dose was divided into thirds for a every 8 hour schedule. I continued to work throughout the titration and stayed productive for a decade. Now I'm toast. Any steady-state pain strategy will eventually change your body chemistry for ever, so it important to exhaust all short-acting, prn "as needed" strategies first. Be honest with your Doctor, it goes a long way."

MS Contin (morphine) for Pain: "Doctor tried MS Contin (morphine ER) it lasts six to eight hours not twelve hours. I scream daily as my breakthrough pain meds were taken from me. Does it compliment breakthrough pain meds yes but by itself it is not a good alternative at all!!!"

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"
