Comment:
I used to take generic time-released morphine(MS Contin)for the chronic severe pain as a result of Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I didn't get adequate relief, so my pain doctor switched me to Kadian, and it has been so helpful! I don't get the drowsiness as I did before, which is a relief!

I was taking 4 Norcos per day and not getting very good pain relief. Switched to Kadian and its a Godsend. Had to adjust dosage to find the right one.

I take magnesium to deal with the constipation. All in ... Show Full Comment
