This med is used for severe to moderate pain. I am a chronic pain sufferer. I was on a real strong dose of this med, had it lowered to only 20mgs 2x daily. Side effects range and vary, such as constipation,lightheadedness,dizziness, drowsiness, stomach upset, nausea, flushing for first few days, can develop irregular heart beats,anxiety, tremors,and seizures.Suggested not to take with tranquilizers,antidepressants,anti-seizures meds.,naltrexone,zidovudine,MOA inhibitors,cimetidine,buprenorphine.This med is Very Addictive.

I have been on Kadian for over 3 years due to chronic back pain from a herniated disk. Before this I was on vicodin, Methadone, and MSContin. I found the Kadian to control my pain much better with less of a rollercoaster feeling as new dose was due. I had been on a higher dose but am now down to 60mg in am and 160mg @night when my pain is worse. I have MSIR for breakthrough pain.
The reason doctors do not order it more is because it is not in Generic form yet and is extremely expensive.! 25 day supply for me is over $750.00!
Recently my workers Comp. Ins co. decided to stop paying for it cold-turkey. This is OK for them to do. Is it ethical?
I was panicking trying to find a medication I could afford that would not send me into withdrawal. I had been on Methadone previously and it made me very anxious.
Thankfully after weeks of worry a nurse finally told me about IWP which will cover medications. It has been a lifesaver.
So the short of it is Kadian is a great pain medication but the price is ridiculous!

Kadian (brand name) has the word Kadian stamped on the purple pill. If it doesn’t have Kadian stamped on the pill, it’s generic Generic has never worked for me

I believe the reason it isn’t prescribed that often is because it’s so expensive. But it works. It’s been the only med that has worked as prescribed for me over the past 25 years.

I’ve been taking Kadian capsule long lasting , 1 tab every 24 hrs (brand name) for years. The generic, which looks the same but does not say Kadian on it didn’t work and every day is was in withdrawals. Meficare normally won’t cover the brand name. After trying several types of Morphine sulphate and ending up in the ER a few times, my Medicare agreed to cover it. I still have a $90 per 28 pills co-pay. It’s worth it to me. I’ve had 4 surgeries with complications. I have severe nerve damage in my back and right leg into my foot. The Jafian has saved my life. I take s 30 mg capsule at 9 pm daily. I still can’t go
Much without having to take Oxy for severe breakthrough pain. But, if I don’t overdue, the Kadian keeps me pain free. I don’t feel
High. I don’t even feel like I have any meds in my system. It’s a much more gentle type of pain relief. To me, it’s a life saver.
