My work comp insurance company has determined I no longer need any of my Meds. I have been taking Kafian 30 and Kadian 10 for over 8 years. At the same time they are weaning me off Trazadone 200, Sertralene 200, oxy for breakthrough and my lido seem patches. What is the safest way to do this? I still need my pain mess. I am scared to death.

Hello, Patti! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you're going through.

The best thing to do would be to consult your doctor for assistance. They'll be able to help you set up a proper tapering schedule or they may be able to prescribe something to help prevent the withdrawal symptoms.

The FDA classifies Kadian as a This narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

You've been on them for a very long time, so it could be risky to try to stop them on your own.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Yes, at the same time they want me to stop Trazadone and Sertraline that I have been taking for years. Should I try to do all of them at the same time or one at at a time.

I have been working with my Pain Management physician but want another opinion Thank you
