Re: ? about ms contin

Hi cocoa, I take avinza, a 24 hr timed release morphine for severe to moderate chronic back pain . I also have adhesive arachnoiditis which causes severe neuropathy in legs, hands, face, chest & the avinza does help with the pain assaciated with the neuropathy but the constant numbness, vibrating "buzzing" continues! I truly hope the morphine helps you as well!

Good luck with the MS Contin. I am currently trying it after 3 years of oxycodone and the results so far aren't very good. Don't know if it is dosage related or what. Took 45-60 mg Oxy with Lyrica with very good results. Now am still taking Lyrica but with 15mg MS Contin twice daily.

What is your dosage and have you been on other opiates before?

Re: ? about ms contin

Hi Cocoa100, I have not tried that medication. I am on a patch called Butrans 10/ug. It works well with the 450mg of lyrica & 60g of cymbalta. I take oxycocet for break through pain which may be 1-2 a day. This combination works well for me. Best of luck. June
