Ms contin or methadone?
Which is better...I think im getting a tolerance with my chronic pain. Asked by Jerrold Marlett 1 year ago.

I was on MS Contin for my chronic pain and it was a god send when I was finally put on methadone. It has a much longer half life in the body. For example, my pain would return before it was time for my next dose on MS Contin, however with the equivalent dose of methadone it did not. I have been taking it for 3 years now and had up the dose for tolerance only 2x as opposed to 4x for the 10 months I was on MS Contin. Additional, one of the things I asked for when asking for something to replace MS Contin was a medication that offered less severe side effects. It does cause all the same problems, but they are much less severe. Switch if you can, good luck. Answered by Terrie Sweets 1 year ago.


How long does it take ms contin to clear my system?
Asked by Dion Rapkin 1 year ago.

MS Contin (the specific brand name one manufactured by Purdue; there are other extended release morphine products for which this information would not be correct) has with a half-life of elimination of 2-3 hours on average (keep in mind however, average is simply that; an average and not necessarily yours as it depends on liver and kidney function, age, weight, etc.). It generally takes about 5 half-lives for a drug to be considered "cleared" from the body. So in other words, you would still have morphine from the original pill within your body for 10-15 hours, (on average). MS Contin is usually dosed every 12 hours, or potentially every 8 in severe cases of pain. Morphine does have some capacity for its levels to build up as not all of it is eliminated by 12 hours in some people and so you could have an escalating effect if you continue to "stack" your morphine doses. In essence, if your question is: if you took one MS Contin pill only one time, how long does it take to clear, then the answer is: it should take, on average 10-15 hours for it to clear your body. If it is not, then please clarify. Explanation of half-life below, if you need it: A "half-life" is the amount of time it takes for a material to be reduce to half its amount. If at time 0 you have 100% of a product, then after 1 half-life, you have 50% of it. After 2 half-lives you have 50% of the amount at 1 half-life, or 25% of the original amount. After 3 half lives, you have 50% of the amount at 2 half-lives and 12.5% of the original amount. At 5 half-lives, you have only 3.125% of the original amount of material remaining, and it is considered "cleared" in terms of the general medical community. The half-life concept is the same in medicine/drugs as it is with physics and decay of radioactive elements and so on. Answered by Carl Brannan 1 year ago.

RE: how long does it take ms contin to clear my system? Answered by Bell Hornbeak 1 year ago.


Is Morphine Sulfate generic for ms contin is it the same as Morphine?
Asked by Ailene Littlejohn 1 year ago.

MS Contin is a brand name for morphine sulfate controlled-release. MS Contin is avalible as a generic. Instant-release forms of morphine sulfate are also avalible both in generic and brand name (eg MSIR). And nearly all forms of morphine are in a sulfate form. So when someone says morphine they mean morphine sulfate. The MS in MS Contin stands for morphine sulfate. Answered by Paz Elbahtity 1 year ago.

The sulphate is just a buffer there so your body can take the pill and you won't get sick. Morphine is usuallly what they drip in an IV. Answered by Onie Garinger 1 year ago.


Are fentanyl patches as effective as MS Contin pills? My cousin has rectal cancer and is in horrible pain.?

I'm surprised that he is on 2 long acting pain medications (Fentanyl & MS contin) and not Fentanyl & a short acting or " break through" pain medication (hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine,dilaudid or morphine.) The drugs that have Contin in the name mean long acting (MS Contin is long acting morphine) so they really don't give relief right away & it sounds like he needs something that acts right away. Sometimes you don't get good pain relief with the patches because they don't always stick to the skin well.I wouldn't recommend taking the 2 long acting ones & if the Fentanyl helps him I'd continue with that & suggest starting on a low dose of morphine like 5 - 10 mg every 4 hours, preferably in the liquid form. I'm thinking of the future when he will probably have problems swallowing & by that time you should be able to give him the liquid. It comes in a small bottle (30 cc or 1 ounce with an eyedropper for measuring the dosage) and is easy to give that way.Don't be afraid to give someone with cancer morphine for this is what they need & even just a small amount is better than trying to give someone a pill to take when they have problem taking food or pills.I've worked with hospice patients for over 10 years & worked with pain management & know about the problems trying to make someone comfortable going through the final stages.The only way you will know what works for him is to try the drug combinations but please try to give him a long acting medication (Fentanyl or a Contin) and a short acting one (morphine liquid 5 -10 mg would be my 1 st choice if his pain is that bad).Please speak with your doctor & see if you can get the pain medication that acts right away for your cousin deserves to be comfortable.

The Fentanyl Patch is a 72 hour controlled release (long acting) medication, where as MS Contin is a short acting pain medication. Using the Fentanyl on a regular basis (changing the patch every 3 days) and taking MS Contin for the break through pain is the best way of utilizing both medications effectively.

Well, I think the idea is for them to be used together.

The Oxycontin is a time-release praparation, while Oxynorm is immediate release. The Oxyconint lasted 12 hours but the Oxynorm only lasts 4-6. I can't say why the doctor changed it, but if she was fine he probably shouldn't have. If the Oxynorm isn't working as well, she should talk to the doctor and tell him so.

Ms contin or methadone?
Which is better...I think im getting a tolerance with my chronic pain. Asked by Isaac Savin 1 year ago.

I was on MS Contin for my chronic pain and it was a god send when I was finally put on methadone. It has a much longer half life in the body. For example, my pain would return before it was time for my next dose on MS Contin, however with the equivalent dose of methadone it did not. I have been taking it for 3 years now and had up the dose for tolerance only 2x as opposed to 4x for the 10 months I was on MS Contin. Additional, one of the things I asked for when asking for something to replace MS Contin was a medication that offered less severe side effects.

How long does it take ms contin to clear my system?
Asked by Glynis Laven 1 year ago.

MS Contin (the specific brand name one manufactured by Purdue; there are other extended release morphine products for which this information would not be correct) has with a half-life of elimination of 2-3 hours on average (keep in mind however, average is simply that; an average and not necessarily yours as it depends on liver and kidney function, age, weight, etc.). It generally takes about 5 half-lives for a drug to be considered "cleared" from the body. So in other words, you would still have morphine from the original pill within your body for 10-15 hours, (on average). MS Contin is usually dosed every 12 hours, or potentially every 8 in severe cases of pain. Morphine does have some capacity for its levels to build up as not all of it is eliminated by 12 hours in some people and so you could have an escalating effect if you continue to "stack" your morphine doses. In essence, if your question is: if you took one MS Contin pill only one time, how long does it take to clear, then the answer is: it should take, on average 10-15 hours for it to clear your body. If it is not, then please clarify. Explanation of half-life below, if you need it: A "half-life" is the amount of time it takes for a material to be reduce to half its amount. If at time 0 you have 100% of a product, then after 1 half-life, you have 50% of it. After 2 half-lives you have 50% of the amount at 1 half-life, or 25% of the original amount. After 3 half lives, you have 50% of the amount at 2 half-lives and 12.5% of the original amount. At 5 half-lives, you have only 3.125% of the original amount of material remaining, and it is considered "cleared" in terms of the general medical community.

After 3 half lives, you have 50% of the amount at 2 half-lives and 12.5% of the original amount. At 5 half-lives, you have only 3.125% of the original amount of material remaining, and it is considered "cleared" in terms of the general medical community. The half-life concept is the same in medicine/drugs as it is with physics and decay of radioactive elements and so on. Answered by Shena Orofino 1 year ago.

Is Morphine Sulfate generic for ms contin is it the same as Morphine?
Asked by Oma Gillmore 1 year ago.

MS Contin is a brand name for morphine sulfate controlled-release. MS Contin is avalible as a generic. Instant-release forms of morphine sulfate are also avalible both in generic and brand name (eg MSIR). And nearly all forms of morphine are in a sulfate form. So when someone says morphine they mean morphine sulfate. The MS in MS Contin stands for morphine sulfate. Answered by Jetta Azevedo 1 year ago.

The sulphate is just a buffer there so your body can take the pill and you won't get sick. Morphine is usuallly what they drip in an IV. Answered by Roberta Morgensen 1 year ago.


Are fentanyl patches as effective as MS Contin pills? My cousin has rectal cancer and is in horrible pain.?
My cousin has rectal cancer. He has been using Fentanyl patches. He thinks that they offered him some relief in his pain. Now, he is starting to take MS Contin because of very bad break-through pain. Is there a person who has taken BOTH of the drugs listed in this post who could tell me which medication is best... Asked by Gwyneth Fauble 1 year ago.

My cousin has rectal cancer. He has been using Fentanyl patches. He thinks that they offered him some relief in his pain. Now, he is starting to take MS Contin because of very bad break-through pain. Is there a person who has taken BOTH of the drugs listed in this post who could tell me which medication is best for eradicating pain? Please let me know. My cousin is still in terrible pain. Answered by Deon Barzey 1 year ago.

I'm surprised that he is on 2 long acting pain medications (Fentanyl & MS contin) and not Fentanyl & a short acting or " break through" pain medication (hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine,dilaudid or morphine.) The drugs that have Contin in the name mean long acting (MS Contin is long acting morphine) so they really don't give relief right away & it sounds like he needs something that acts right away. Sometimes you don't get good pain relief with the patches because they don't always stick to the skin well.I wouldn't recommend taking the 2 long acting ones & if the Fentanyl helps him I'd continue with that & suggest starting on a low dose of morphine like 5 - 10 mg every 4 hours, preferably in the liquid form. I'm thinking of the future when he will probably have problems swallowing & by that time you should be able to give him the liquid. It comes in a small bottle (30 cc or 1 ounce with an eyedropper for measuring the dosage) and is easy to give that way.Don't be afraid to give someone with cancer morphine for this is what they need & even just a small amount is better than trying to give someone a pill to take when they have problem taking food or pills.I've worked with hospice patients for over 10 years & worked with pain management & know about the problems trying to make someone comfortable going through the final stages.The only way you will know what works for him is to try the drug combinations but please try to give him a long acting medication (Fentanyl or a Contin) and a short acting one (morphine liquid 5 -10 mg would be my 1 st choice if his pain is that bad).Please speak with your doctor & see if you can get the pain medication that acts right away for your cousin deserves to be comfortable. God bless. Answered by Ellena Prante 1 year ago.

The Fentanyl Patch is a 72 hour controlled release (long acting) medication, where as MS Contin is a short acting pain medication. Using the Fentanyl on a regular basis (changing the patch every 3 days) and taking MS Contin for the break through pain is the best way of utilizing both medications effectively. Answered by Yon Schulenburg 1 year ago.

Well, I think the idea is for them to be used together. If he got the morphine for break through pain, it kinda sounds like he should still be using the patch, and taking the ms contin in between patch changes. But, if your cousin is still in pain after taking the meds as directed, he should call the doctor and ask them what to do. Those are both hard pain killers, so he should NOT alter the schedule without talking to the doc. Answered by Raquel Wrona 1 year ago.

Fentanly is absorbed slowly so will give good background pain relief. He need short opioid to help with breakthrough pain. Also other drugs are useful for nerve pain.Also local anesthetic blocks can be useful Answered by Mindi Puig 1 year ago.


What is the difference between oxycontin 10 mg and 15 mg ms contin?

The Oxycontin is a time-release praparation, while Oxynorm is immediate release. The Oxyconint lasted 12 hours but the Oxynorm only lasts 4-6. I can't say why the doctor changed it, but if she was fine he probably shouldn't have. If the Oxynorm isn't working as well, she should talk to the doctor and tell him so. The acttive ingredient in the medication is the same, but patients are sometimes given the Oxycontin to take 2 times a day regardless of whether they have pain or not to keep the base level of pain low and the Oxynorm for any breakthrough pain they may have.
