Through the process of my back injury I have been on several medications, what I am on now is Lyrica and Loratab 10. I am about to step up the Lyrica to the 150s but I was curious if there was something that was stronger than the Loratab that may last longer also? Thanks for your input.

  • yes there are a few long acting meds available that provide nice even pain control with kess ups and downs. and your not constantly chasing the pain every 4 hours. there is ms contin wich is morphine sulfate, hydromorphan, and methadone or diluadid's. hope this helps your PM dr. will know a lot more about these than i though. good luck and welcome to board.
  • ms contin? Please don't take this the wrong way but is that mispelled? I went through the list of meds commonly used on this thread and couldn't find it? Is it available in the states? I know a lot of people are not from here and there are different neds and procedures available. Thanks for your time and I hope you don't take offense to me asking that.
  • is Morphine. You MIGHT be thinking that REMZY was referring to Oxycotin which is extended release Oxycodone. So no they did not misspell it. I didn't like the MS Contin at all.
  • its good for me but need a lot. it took timke for body to adjust.
