Hello to you and welcome to the board. Unfortunately I can't answer your questions, no doubt this drug will give side effects and withdrawal problems but from what I'm told, until you are pain free, it will be worth the pain. Just remember, you're not addicted to drugs you're dependent on drugs. Took me a long time, but that fact has finally sifted through the thick outer skin of my subconscious.
I have a question for you, what were percocets like?? Did they touch/help any of the pain inhibitors?? I'm on oxycontin at the present time. Although these help a bit, the pain is still everpresent. Answer will be appreciated.
: Hello. I am suffering. Alot of pain after two level cervical discectomy with fusion and plating & failed lumbar laminectomy. Levels are c-5,c-6, c-7. L-5 S-1.
: Have been on meds for 13 months. Recently had tywo Razcs procedures wich did not even touch pain & weakness in left lower extremity. Just started taking MS-Contin after trying Oxy-Contin,Percocet,Hydrocodone and Methadone. Went through nasty times after stoping previous meds.
: Will MS-Contin produce horrible effects when I stop taking it? Do not like being medicated but can not fuction at all without. If anyone has any insight please e-mail me. I would be very happy with any info that you could supply. Thank you.
: Hope you all feel better soon. JR
