Re: morphine sulfate ER to replace OxyContin? HELP!
I was on Oxy for several years and then when Purdue switched to their new "safer" version last year it didn't work for me anymore. So I asked my doc to switch me to a new med, we discussed options and decided on MSContin (Morphine Sulphate). It works better than the oxy, with less side effects. The only thing is I had to take a higher dose of Morphine to equal the dose of Oxy, so you may have to mess with that a bit. Hopefully you'll do fine and the switch will be successful...I know several others on these boards who've made the exact same switch very successfully.
