MS Contin is a strong narcotic pain reliever that is a time-released version of morphine. Because of its potency, its prescription is usually reserved for those who have cancer-related pain or have suffered a severe physical trauma. MS Contin is considered the “cousin” to another opiate painkiller called OxyContin . MS Contin is a Schedule II Controlled Substance in the U.S., meaning it is regulated by the federal government. Opiate painkillers are classified this way based on factors including their potential to be abused, accepted medical use and potential risks. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse and Schedule V has the lowest. An addiction to MS Contin is serious and requires medical intervention. It can be characterized by a physical need to have the drug in order to feel normal and persistent use despite potential harm.
Misuse, Overdose and MS Contin Withdrawal Symptoms
MS Contin is meant to be taken exactly as directed on the bottle’s label. Chewing, breaking or otherwise crushing the pills can lead to a fatal overdose. Taking an opiate painkiller for a regular amount of time can lead a user to develop a tolerance. This can require them to take more and more to achieve the pain relief. If you are physically dependent upon MS Contin, your body will go through a painful withdrawal phase once use is stopped or gradually lessened. This can be extremely hard to manage without medical intervention. Withdrawal symptoms associated with the use of MS Contin include muscle and bone pain, intense anxiety, nausea, insomnia, fever, flu-like symptoms, tremors and cramps. The fear and anxiety about having to go through withdrawal keeps many from seeking help for MS Contin addiction.
