Need help with $137.00 the medicare rx insurance doesn't pay. Doctor perscribes ms contin but the generic is cheaper so I get morphine sulphate 100 mg blue oblong tablets.
MS Contin, one of the most common pain drugs, was originally made by Purdue Pharmaceuticals according to Wikipedia. You can also get it in capsule form under the trade name Kadian and in solution forum under the trade name Roxanol.
Now that the patent has lapsed you can get generic MS Contin from Endo Pharmaceuticals, Ethex Corporation, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and Watson Laboratories.
I hope you can find something that works for you.
Looks like Purdue Pharma makes MS Contin and DPT Labs and Watson are some of the companies that make the Morphine Sulfate 100 Mg's. This address belongs to the Purdue Pharma Patient Assistance Program:
