Best generic for MsContin?

What generic do people take for MsContin ER? What's the best one? I'm hoping my doctor will switch me to morphine.

Watson, Mallkinkrodt, KV (?), or Endo?

Thanks for your help,

Re: Best generic for MsContin?

I have seen no difference among any of the MS Contin. I just get whichever the pharmacy has on hand.

This is just my opinion, but Watson makes a superior product. My sister is currently using the watson fentanyl patch and she seems to like it ok.

Good luck with your shopping Krit

Thanks for the help. I will probably go with Watson if I switch medications. On one board, someone said the (usually dreaded) Mallinkrodt made the best MSContin. I suppose it's possible . . .
