Kadian 100 mg 2 times a day vs. 20 mg opana 3 times a day.

I was on 100 mg of Kadian twice a day for 7 years and got switched to 20 mg of Opana three times of day. Also, I was on 15 mg of Morphine 4 times a day and was switched to 4 mg of dialudid 4 times a day. I want to know if these dosages are equal to my old medicine dosages. ## I don't believe these are equivalent dosages, more over because Morphine is the active ingredient in Kadian. In which case you had taken 100mg twice a day (200mg/day) and later dropped down to 15mg four times a day (60mg/day). That's a pretty significant difference in and of itself, not taking into consideration the Opana or Dilaudid fixtures. As far as Opana (Oxymorphone) and Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) goes, these are two different drugs with different levels of potency/pain relief, so cross-comparing the tw...

pharmacys who carry kadian in cleveland tn

I was prescribed kadian 10mg but need to know what pharmacy in Cleveland TN carries it. I have called about all pharmacies and no one seems to carry it. ## I'm assuming you've filled your prescription by now. I just came across your post and for future reference keep in mind that if your regular pharmacy doesn't have it and you've physically checked one more pharmacy and they don't have any either you can ask the nurse or someone at the doctors office to help you find the medication. Be very nice and they'll be more likely to help you asap. First, you're in pain and driving, walking, riding can exacerbate any kind of pain. Not to mention the stress of going from store to store only to be told "no". You calling pharmacies usually doesn't work. They...

What is generic Kadian??

My husbands doctor says there is not a generic for Kadian. You say you are taking the generic Kadian...what is the name of it?? ## MS CONTIN ## If your dr. writes for Kadian and accepts a generic form on the script the pharmacy can get it from Alpharma. It is the exact pill but with morphine sulfate on the label. Your pharmacist will have to do the digging and order it in for you in your dose. ## KADIAN vs GENERIC Kadian. I am not a MD but I do take Kadian. This is what I know. Kadian is morphine sulphate slow release long lasting. KADIAN says Kadian on the capsule. There is Not a generic for Kadian. However, like I said Kadian is morphine sulphate. There are many manufacturers of Morphine sulphate. I was taking Kadian for many years. At one point the pharmacy filled my prescription wit...

Withdrawal first from: Nabilone or Kadian

Which opioid is less difficult to withdraw from first? Nabilone: 1mg x 4 times a day. or Kadian: 100 mg ER once a day. ## Hi shemas, Nabilone is actually in a class of medications called cannabinoids, not opioids. That said, Kadian (Morphine) would most-likely be the more difficult drug to withdrawal from. However, if you stop taking Nabilone suddenly, you may have withdrawal symptoms, so in my opinion it would still be wise to taper off this as well. How long have you been taking these medications for? ## I have been taking 100mg of kadian for over 5 years, Im terrified of the withdrawl especially since its been for such a long period, I don't know if Im addicted or not, I don't have an addictive personality. I was on Percodan for over a year due to extensive dental work. I use...

which one is better for you in the pain department

is Kadian er 30mg stronger then morphine sulfate ir 30mg? i would like to know so i can get the best one for my back pain ## Hello, Debby! How are you? Morphine is the active ingredient in Kadian, so neither one that you've mentioned is stronger. The difference lies in the formulation. The Kadian is a time released formulation, so the Morphine is slowly released for a period of approximately 12 hours to provide better pain control. While the IR is an instant release formulation that releases all of the Morphine at once to alleviate pain and these ones usually last about 6 to 8 hours….but sometimes as little as 4, if someone is tolerant to opiates. Learn more Morphine details here. Morphine is a narcotic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, s...

watson 3450 VS Kadian 30mg

Does anyone know the difference between Kadian 30 mg to Watson 3450. My Kadian was just changed to the Watson pill and I am now in withdrawal.

Watson 3450 is a purple/white capsule and contains 30 mgs Morphine Sulfate Extented Release. The amount of medication in a Brand and a generic may vary. The Brands have exact medication whereas generics may vary. For example, if you have a generic that says 10 mgs, there can be 8 mgs-12 mgs of medication in it.

How Long Does Kadian Stay In Your System

I have been prescribed Kadian 30 mg 2x day for over 3 years and just had a drug test. I was out of it for 8 days. Will it still show up in my urine? ## If you hadn't taken it for 8 days, before the test, then no it isn't likely that it will show up in the drug test. It is usually only detectable for approximately 4 to 5 days, after the last dosing. Learn more Kadian details here. Why were you out so early? ## I was out of it because my truck died and I had no way to get to the doctor and pharmacy for refills.

getting more than 30 day prescription for travel

My wife has used Kadian for six years. She has a new Dr. We travel frequently, sometimes on short notice, and if we want to leave town for ten days when there are five days before she uses up her current prescription, we have to chase Dr. to write new script and then argue with ins. co. I would like her to have a cushion of a 30 day supply always in hand so we can hop on a plane regardless of when her current month's supply runs out. Has anyone found a good way to deal with this issue? Frank ## Unfortunately, there really is no solution. U.S. federal law prohibits the dispensing of more than 30 days, at a time of controlled substances and Kadian contains the active ingredient Morphine, which is a controlled substance. The only possible solution would be to have her doctor prescribe ...

Taking Kadian fo Chronic Pain

I am and have been taking the generic form of Kadian and MSIR for well over a year now since bing involved in an auto accident which left me with chronic,inoperable pain and which corticostroids did nothing for.

This may change due to an increase in breakthrough pain that is constant.I was switched off the Pain Care Centers choice of medications which was The use of the Fenanyl Patch because of my medicaids State-wide order to exhaust all other forms of Narcotic pain Treatment, those being Morphine and Methadone, which don't cost the government as much as the Patches.

what do you do when you become kadian tolerant and start having withdrawals while still taking the prescribed dose

can't take suboxone, or benzos ==adverse reactions do i just stick to the med hoping my body will except, or just drop ct and go through the withdrawals ## You shouldn't be experiencing withdrawals, if you are still taking the same dosage. Even as a maintenance dose, it will prevent withdrawals, if it doesn't help with your pain, at all. There are other opiates you can try, the strongest one on the market is Fentanyl, which is available as a patch and a lollipop. Have you discussed your other options with your doctor? ## Fentynal is a very strong drug but highly abusive and addictive i take Kadian 100's 2xday and have no problems besides constapation stool softners help that u should have 5 movements a week eat fruit and juice.
