Discussions that mention morphine

Pain Management board

BT pain is significant discomfort that happens even when you are taking around-the-clock medications for pain. It is very common and most folks that are treated with long-acting meds are prescribed short acting narcotics (oxycodone, morphine, dilaudid, hydrocodone, etc) for BT pain.

One doesn't have to be in excruciating pain to need something like OxyContin. OxyContin is for moderate to moderately severe pain that requires around-the-clock pain medication. If that describes your friend then this drug applies. Dosage is another matter.
