User Comments about Morphine Sulfate CR
21 Jan 2013 This medication saved my life. My pain was so bad after a motor vehicle accident in which I was hit from the rear while stopped in my car at a stoplight that I was forced to stop practicing law and take disability retirement. The driver of the truck that slammed into my vehicle had fallen asleep at the wheel, and sped down a hill before plowing into me. The pain got so bad almost two years later that I could hardly work and was not being treated for my pain. I was dealing with so much pain (many herniated discs in my cervical and thoracic spine, bone spurs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and constant headaches and neck, shoulder, back, and jaw pain from continually spasming muscles), and stress at work, and was not being treated for the pain. I had always been an optimistic person, a hard worker with a high pain threshhold, but one day after many days of severe pain and no sleep, I felt the only way out of the pain and stress was to kill myself, so I tried. Fortunately, my attempt did not work, and I got good counseling afterwards and quit working. Morphine gave me wonderful pain relief--the pain relief is not total, but it relieves about 60-75% of the pain. I am very, very grateful.

01 Sep 2010 I have fibromyalgia as welbut I aslo have really bad back pain which just got worse after a car accident. My Dr. said this is the cheapest ones without insurance. I am finding it very expensive. Do you think it will help with the pain and will it make me sleepy.

17 Jul 2010 This medication generally makes me feel very tired, nauseated. I often feel very hot--perspire much more than ever. It is not taking care of the pain. I entered a pain management program with a phy, reccomendation for a neurostimulator for back pain. I wonder if my med was changed to make me think that anything has got to be better than this. Previously I had beem using lortab 5-no more than 2 daily along with soma--usually only once daily.
