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.

Its been a God send and works wonderful. They say there is a generic but I am told it doesnt work as well. I can buy the name brand but pay 200.00 crazy. I am pain free with Kadian and MSIR for break through pain. Being allergic to everything else all codones this is all that works for me.

Comment:
I've used Kadian for fibromyalgia for several years, with good results. I have also used other extended relief morphine meds(Avinza, Embeda,). It seems about the same as the other brands. However, when I was briefly changed to Opana(a different opioid),It was so awful, I only made it a few days and had to go back on the morphine. It seems that the body goes through a wash-out phase(the Dr ex ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 37 and was diagnosed with debilitating Lupus and RA 5 years ago. It was after I had topped out of other drugs and started having high liver function tests, that my Rheumatologist recommended Kadian because it's an extended release medication. It has given me my life back. I have 2 small children and run a small business. I don't have time to feel bad. I took 10 MG 2x a day for a ... Show Full Comment
