MST Continus tablets have been specifically developed in order to treat severe pain. Treatment with MST Continus tablets at 12-hrly intervals ensures relief from severe pain. The simplicity of 12-hrly dosing makes MST Continus tablets suitable as a treatment both in hospital and in the patient's home.
Pharmacokinetics: Morphine sulfate is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract following oral administration. The patented prolonged-release system maintains plasma levels of morphine over a period of up to 12 hrs and reduces the likelihood of morphine-associated side effects.
