Re: What is thedifference between MS Contin and MS/IR?
I'm not sure about the IR, but the Contin means extended release (oxycotin, MS Cotin)...do NOT cut the extended release tablets. There is a protective coating around them that causes the drug to be released into your system over time. Cutting them increases your chances of OD'ing, and will also cause you to become addicted/dependent quicker. If you have to taper using these, try to get ones with a lower mg.
