  • MS Contin: our town can't get it!

    For some reason our whole town can't get MS Contin sublingual or the generic.

    Last week I had my Rx filled and was told they only had 1/2 my order. They said they would have the rest of it in a couple days.

    My pharmacist called today and informed me that the manufacturer is all out and they don't know when or IF they will produce more. He called all the other pharmacies in town and nobody can get it.

    What is going on with this????

    Also, what can my uro prescribe for an instant relief pain med.? I am thinking of the "lollipop" medication but I can't remember the name.

    Right now I take MS Contin 12 hour pills and use the MS Contin sublingual for instant relief for breakthrough pain.

    Please call your doctor today and let him know you are unable to get your ordered medication.

    And let me know what you find out.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe

      so sad

      It is so sad that the people who are paying the price for this med shortage/ or any loss of the medication at all , are having to find other means for pain management because people think Oxycontin is a "fun" drug!
      I will tell you what I have never experienced any euphoria or fun when taking this medication, it did help with my IC but my resperations got so long and apart I though I could possibly die. It was not the drug for me.
      With that said, it is unfair that the consumer who needs this medicine is having to pay for it 's loss and even total absense in some pharmacies, (this too is happening here in little old Fort Smith, Arkansas) because of the crimes that these "fun run drug seeking weirdo's" have taken upon themselves to abuse the drug against it's well intended purpose and are dropping 4 at a time every few hours for the "high" they get.
      I will tell you what when you need those kinds of narcotics it is not because you are suffering from a slight cold, Oxycontin is seriouse business and I like you am frustrated whith the way the habitual, non problematic, symptomatic, pain free, drug thugs are doing to the pharmacutical business.
      It cas become so insane that most people are really having a hard time getting their scripts filled just because some guy likes the high of it all, gosh, reckon' he can have an IC Bladder for one week, go through the woes of trying to get the script and have to survive with out it.
      I wish eye for an eye was implemented. " You thugs abuse now, you do not get later!"
      Just my little vent!!

        Hi! The name of the quick acting lollipop, I believe is Actique. I have asked to try it but my doc says that since he is n't familiar with it, he wont order it I also agree with you about the drug thugs. I get no sensation of euphoria or anything else when I take my oxy. I take it cuz I need it.They need to really crack down on these abusers so that people who really need these meds to live a decent life can do so. All the best to you all.
        Wishing you the best, today, tomorrow, and always! Sheri G
