Morphine Dosage SR vs IR vs. Methadone
 
I have been on Methadone 5 mg. three times a day for chronic pain. Pain management has now ordered MS 15 ER twice a day and MS 15 IR once a day.

Wondering if the difference between MS ER and MS IR is the coating on the pill or the actual medication. But ,I will ask the pain clinic at my next appt.

I am wondering how many people are able to take MS ER two times a day or if most need to take it three times a day. I see from the boards it is quite variable according to a a case by case basis , so I think I answered my own question.
