MS Contin (morphine): "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!!!"

MS Contin (morphine): "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."

Morphine Sulfate ER (morphine): "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???"

"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!"

MS Contin (morphine): "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."

"This medication to me, doesn't make you too loopy, however it does numb your body which is what it is supposed to do. I prefer dilaudid over this medicine, however it does work."

"I have small cell lung cancer. My doctor prescribed fast release morphine yesterday, 30 mg and after 2 1/2 tablets I have stopped. I was on Norco 10 mg which took my pain to a completely tolerable level.The Morphine has left me terribly nauseated and barely able to eat, I itch horribly and it has sapped my energy terribly. Also it does not really reduce my pain. I took only 1/2 tab today and I've had enough."

"I've been taking MS 30mg T.I.D. For 4 months for my migraine pain with Tylenol 3 for breakthrough relief. Migraines are starting to come back not sure what other options I have as IR pain meds are not an option as my migraines are to frequent and I risk becoming addicted."

MS Contin (morphine): "I have had chronic, constant migraine for 40 years, complicated by Fibromyalgia which added all over body pain. After years with various short acting pain meds like Lortab and Percocet, my doctor finally tried OxyContin first (worked, but I got tolerant very quickly) and finally MS-Contin, with Percocet as my breakthrough med. My life changed immediately. I take 30mg MS 4 times per day, with up to 3 Percocet. This dosage has not changed in 15 years, and allowed me to return to work full time. I have a (relatively) normal life with occasional days that are bad. MS-Continue was not available in generic form when I started and cost a huge amount every month. Happily, it's generic now and extremely affordable. It saved my sanity."

"I have 6 bad discs with degenerative bone and disc disease. I have been on Morphine Sulfate for over 5 years. I started on Methadone then went to Oxy's while the morphine still helps, the the dosage 30mg x 3 daily plus Norco 10/325 along with muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medicines. I live a much more productive live. The morphine is awesome!"

MS Contin (morphine): "I experience a slipped disc years ago and after a few injections I was still in pain so I was treated with physical therapy, tramadol, OxyContin, and finally morphine. The MS Contin was a God send! I take 2-60mg MsContins a day with 4-15mg instant release for breakthrough pain. Although I only get 8-9hrs relief from a 12 hr pill. I feel 3 times a day for MsContin would keep my levels more steady, but my doc is reluctant to increase it. Sometimes I feel a little tired but the quality of my life has improved dramatically without the high drugged feeling and mood swings of other opiates."

"I had infection from a bad tooth. It was the only thing that helped while I was in the hospital being treated with IV antibiotics. It gave almost instant relief and I was able to sleep and recover well."

Kadian (morphine): "After reading so many people say that Kadian gave them so much relief from their chronic pain I was willing to give it a try. I had been taking Oxycodone 30mg 4 X's a day and felt amazing but they are now trying to get rid of all Oxycodone and Oxycontin because it has become such an epidemic on the street. So, we had to switch to something else. She started me on Kadian 60mg 2 X's a day with Percocet 10s every 6 hrs. The Kadian does absolutely nothing for my pain so she increased it to 80mg and still no relief. I have degenerative disc disease, a bulging disc and fibromyalgia. Oxycodone was the only thing that seemed to help."

"I broke my back in 2000 and I've had several compression fractures since then and now have developed osteophytes, I was in pain every day and couldn't work, so ended up on disability. I recently started Morphine ER and it has worked wonders, and I no longer need to take 8-12 pills a day like I used to, It's been a God send. I can get around much better and am relatively pain free. I don't get drowsy or dizzy, in fact I don't seem to have any side effects. My quality of life has improved significantly since I started this new medication. Thank goodness my Doctor decided to try this, I will admit, after dealing with this for so long I had lost hope it would get any better. I wish I had known about this years ago, better late than never."

"I take about 6 x 30mg morphine and it does nothing. The best thing I have ever found for severe back pain is 30mg Percocet. By far best thing out there."

MS Contin (morphine): "I was on 50mgs methadone three times a day for over two years and had pain every day and waking up in the morning was unbearable. I was prescribed MsContin 60 mgs three times a day two days ago and the first morning I woke up, I got right up, went into the kitchen to make my tea and stopped dead in my tracks. Wait a minute, my back doesn't hurt, my body doesn't hurt, I got out of bed without cussing up a storm! This is a miracle. I can't believe it. I'm also on oxycodone 15 mgs 4 times daily for breakthrough pain. My body is now ridding of all the built up toxins from methadone including once a month bowel movements. I'm much happier now."

"For the past 5 years I have been taking Vicodin 7.5/325 and Percocet. I got to the point where I was taking so many Vicodin to try to break the pain cycle that it was starting to cause liver damage. My Doc decided to switch me to the Morphine sulphate. After 2 days I noticed a marked change, I was no longer using the Vicodin or Percocet at all. It has now been 5 months, the pain is still there but I can work and play with my 5 month old baby girl. I'm sure I will have to have the dosage changed soon as I only seem to get about 9 hrs of reduced pain before it starts coming back."

"I also use Morphine SR 100mg/8hrs and would not be a functioning member of society without it. Degenerative Disc Disease, Stenosis, Narrowing of Spinal Foraminae, Bone Spurs, and Facet Syndrome would have me all but crippled. I can use this medication and function and support myself or not use it and draw off the government. I will choose the first option thank you."
