Hi Kelly! Welcome to HW/CP - but of course sorry that you had a reason to find us. We have members here who have had very good luck with Morphine ER and I'm sure they will be around soon enough (might be a few more hours because of the time though!). Unfortunately I am not one of them - Morphine (both ER and IR) offers very little pain relief for me. It's just one of those things - certain meds can work very differently with different people.
It really stinks that your insurance is no longer covering the Oxycontin - it's becoming more and more common, unfortunately. The sad part is that in many instances it's not because of the cost - it's because it is the 'dreaded' Oxycontin, the evil 'hillbilly heroin'. Because those same insurance companies pay for many non-narcotic medications that are MUCH more expensive. They don't care that Oxycontin has literally given many people their lives back, allowing them to work, play with their kids, fix a meal, etc. Ok, better get off my soap-box now!
Others will be around soon. Have a peaceful day!
