Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Contin
Stoppage of MS Contin [posted
Answer: Depends a great deal on how long you've been taking it. If you have developed dependency expect abdominal pain/cramps, sweats and an anxiety type feeling. If you have not developed dependency, you will experience few, if any problems with sudden cessation. Clonidine (usually a blood pressure pill) can help block some of these if they are severe.
