MS Contin is a strong narcotic pain reliever that is a time-released version of morphine. Because of its potency, doctors usually prescribe it for those who have cancer-related pain or have suffered a severe physical trauma. MS Contin is the “cousin” to another opiate painkiller called OxyContin. In addition, MS Contin is a Schedule II Controlled Substance in the U.S., meaning it is regulated by the federal government. They classify opiate painkillers this way according to factors including their potential for abuse, acceptable 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. In particular, addiction is a physical need to have the drug in order to feel normal and persistent use despite potential harm.
