...This is a ridiculous product. My Dr feels the need to switch my meds out according to how much publicity it's getting.As in ..as Fentanyl gains negative publicity he needs to eliminate it from his practice. So my comparison is between these two meds.I'm guessing Kadian is now the flavor of the month, being pushed by the endless parade of drug reps buying the office lunch on a daily basis. A kick back is probably involved with every new prescription. Anyway...Kadian is garbage compared to Fentanyl...unless you enjoy restless nights filled with bizarre dreams and MONUMENTAL dry mouth. It's main function seems to be COMPLETELY blocking up one's bowels, not pain relief. Avoid this disaster of a product if possible.

Seems to be most effective at about 8 hours after admin for me. The insurance would only pay for one time a day admin so I am on 60 mg. Only odd event is shortly after i developed a cardiac arrythmia... anyone else have issues

After being on numerous other drugs, this is the only drug with the least side effects and the most effectiveness

Just started on this medication and so far it is working well for me. I was on oxycodone, 15mg x 6 a day which was not working. This is the first time I have had any relief from most of my pain in 20 years.

I tried everything my pain clinic recommended for my spondylosis, including fusion surgery. Kadian was the perfect treatment although over time I'm beginning to experience more breakthrough pain and I wonder if the disease is progressing or if the generic Kadian is not as effective?
