MS Contin Drug Information
A strong narcotic, MS Contin® (morphine sulfate ER) is a prescription medication approved to treat chronic moderate-to-severe pain. This painkiller is not designed for mild pain, short-term pain, or "as needed" use. The tablets are specially designed to release morphine gradually over an extended period of time. As a result, you can take the drug just two or three times a day, instead of taking morphine many times a day.
Prior to taking MS Contin, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information about any other medications you are taking (including nonprescription products and supplements) and any other medical conditions you have. This product is not suitable for everyone, and discussing these things with your healthcare provider can help him or her ensure that this is the best treatment for you.
