    Hmm. That could be true. Sometimes drugs have the same active ingredient, but due to the inactive ingredients, coatings, etc their "pharmacokinetics" (how they enter the bloodstream, are metabolized, and leave the body) are different.

    Sometimes these differences are published, and sometimes they're not... it's just a little "doctor secret" somewhere ... LOL

    Hope your doc decides to stick with a good program once and for all

    My doctor told me it "releases better", that with MsContin there is an UP and then down, but the OraMorph is a steady release that lasts a bit longer than MsContin. Have you heard of such a thing?

    I think the reasoning behind it, is they want to eliminate my breakthrough meds (Norco 7.5).

    hmm....

    I just wish my doctor would make up his mind! He's very wishy washy lately! lol

    Thanks

    Well, I've never taken it, but from what I can find, it seems like there really is no difference between Oramorph SR and MS-Contin. In fact, when you type in "Oramorph" on some drug monograph sites, MS-Contin comes up because it's an alternate name for the same drug, but a different manufacturer.

    I'm not really sure what your doc is thinking -- perhaps you should call and see if you can get a more in-depth explanation of his plans?

    started a topic Ora Morph?

    Ora Morph?

    My pain management doctor wants me to switch from the MsContin to Ora Morph and titrate the dose up and get rid of my breakthrough meds.

    My question is, does anyone have any experience with OraMorph? And HOW is it different from the MsContin?

    Thanks!
