Re: MS Contin Confusion
what was your dad prescribed for pain prior to the ms contin? how old is dad and what is the reason for the pain meds? does he suffer any neurological problems? yes the dose of the ms is very low, but does also depend on how long on opiate therapy and with what meds; ms starts at 15mg and goes to 200mg per tablet. is he getting pain relief? if he can take it every 12h with pain relief that would be ideal, the side effects should pass after several days-make sure any of his other meds he may take can be safely taken with it. i take 100mg 3 times a day and all i feel is less pain thats why alot of CP pt's like this medicine-but ihave been on opiate therapy for 4 yrs.
