Can I use MS Contin if I am taking buprenorphine?

In most cases, you shouldn't use the pain medication MS Contin (morphine) if you're taking buprenorphine (Subutex, Suboxone), which is used to treat addiction to opioid drugs such as heroin and narcotic painkillers. Because MS Contin is an opioid itself, it may be less effective or not work at all if you're also using buprenorphione. Also, If you've been taking MS Contin for a long time and then begin using buprenorphine, you may experience withdrawal symptoms from MS Contin.
