    I HAVE HAD CHRONIC PAIN SINCE 2005 AND HAVE GONE FROM VICODIN,OXYCODONE AND NOW MS CONTIN 60MG 2X DAY AND MSIR 15MG UP TO 3 A DAY. I ALSO HAD PROBLEMS WITH CONSTIPATION UNTIL I WAS TOLD ABOUT MIRALAX. YOU MIX ONE CAP FULL WITH ANY THING YOU DRINK IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FLAVOR NOR DOES IT GET THICK. TRY IT EVERY DAY UNTIL IT WORKS AND THEN YOU JUST TAKE IT EVERY OTHER DAY OR WHAT EVER WORKS FOR YOU ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Norco for a year now taking 8-10 a day and now they r ineffective, I have tried Oxycontin for long term and Norco for breakthrough and they were ineffective. I am amazed to read peoples comments here and I am confused when all of you have had great success, how come it will not work for me?

    I took Fentnyl patches for almost three years and was completely miserable, my doctor didnt want to put me on oral pain med, because I have short gut syndrom, but finally switched me to MS Contin and it has been a miracle, I seem to be absorbing it well. And like all medications there is some break through pain. But overall I am a huge supporter of MS Contin
