Hi, this is nini/Kathy, I take ms contin, and SE is correct, because it is a time released med, you dont feel the effects, its sort of just there. I also take 10mg percocet for bt pain and thats what gets me up out of bed, the ms contin alone would not do it. You could talk to your doctor about using a bt med if you decide to go back to ms contin. Morphine, given without the time release will work quickly, but also wear off quickly.
Take care, and good luck,
