Maybe going up to MS Contin (morphine) prescription. Is this stronger than tramadol? Tramadol not controlling my pain.

Oh, yeah. The MS in MS Contin is morphine sulfate. The opiates & opioids are the most powerful as well as among the most dangerously addictive drugs for pain. The 3 strongest in ascending order of strength are hydromorphone aka Dilaudid, morphine, & diacetylmorphine aka heroin. Your doc isn't likely to recommend the last one. The other 2 are tricky enough to use safely. Read more...
Opiates>>>>Tramadol. In terms of potency of drug MS contin (morphine) is an opiate drug and opiates are considered more effective for pain relief purposes than non-opiates. Tramadol is actually a SYNTHETIC OPIATE.....so for that reason I say MS CONTIN (morphine) may win out. However, overall I never like to hear someone say they HAVE to go to opiates to relieve neuropathic pain. I feel that person has LOST that battle when I hear that. Read more...

Ask your doctor. Generally, a trial of short-acting opiate drugs is appropriate, together with non-opiate drug treatment and non-pharmacological treatment. If your doctor is not expert in helping you taper the tramadol (which should be done first, since they may interact with poor results), and in starting long-acting morphine, you should get consultation from a pain physician who is expert. A taper can be rapid. Read more...
