For Pain "I have taken many different pain medicines over the last 11 years. This morphine is the smoothest, with no spikes or lows of blood levels. It has a fairly long half life, so you don't have to worry about withdrawals if you miss a dose or two."
For Pain "As of the results from heavy continued lifting for over 20 years my back was sacrificed. I now suffer from chronic lower lumbar pain due to bulging disc's and stenosis as well as frequent nerve pain. The Doctor prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 4x daily. This worked for relief but only for short periods of time. After talking again with my Doctor. She prescribed Morphine Sulfate SR 15 mg 2x daily and left me on the Oxycodone for breakthrough pain. The Morphine SR started working after about the 2nd day and gave me the STEADY relief I was looking for without making me drowsy. This combination works great and gave me back my life and the chance to be part of the family again."
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."
