    just looking.....I got blown out of the water in the chat room. Can't keep up!

    i posted a reply on the FM board where you were looking for me and now it's gone. Did you delete it?

    I think the mods pulled it, maybe cuz it should have been on this board instead.

    Anyway, my Dr gave me MScontin 15mg last wk and I was wondering if you've ever taken it. I just got some and I can't tolerate it, is it a strong one? Just made me loopy all day. I was supposed to take it for longer acting pain relief.

    Just seem to be the med guru.

    I'm not Doxy but I thought I'd pop in if that's okay.
    MSContin is very strong to some. Unfortunately for me - it did nothing, but I'm used to taking some stronger medication. Can you doc give you a lower dose? I'm not sure if it comes in lower mgs. Unfortunately you can't split those - very dangerous.
    Some people tolerate Oxycontin better than MSContin, some the other way around. We're all so different - it's a matter of trial and error!
    I'd maybe call your doc and see if there are any other options. Did it help with your pain though? =)

    Dr gave MScontin to me to try for a longer acting pain med. I usually take 2 7.5/325 Norco 3x day during the day. I was the one who was worried about taking that much Norco, but he said it was fine. Just suggested I could try the MScontin and use Norco for breakthru pain.

    The hydrocodone in Norco works well for my pain and even helps give me a bit of energy, but the MS contin made me tired and loopy. That's why I didn't like it. I don't need to be anymore tired than I already am!!
