Major Suggestion Towards Fixing Things!

BRING BACK AVINZA! I've had Chronic Pain for 36 years daily. For almost 25 years now I've been taking strong Narcotics, mostly though I've been taking one kind of Morphine or another. But the best I've had for my C1-C2 Pain, and head, facial, and upper body Pain (that is also somewhat due to severe head injury, and the multiple head and face injuries that I had) has been AVINZA! It worked so well for my Pain and in relation to my body, that I classified it as a Miracle drug. I'm having a hard time finding a replacement, as of yet one year later I have NOT found one that compares anywhere close to it, though I can't get MS Contin, or Oxy-Contin paid for and which I'd like to try again with the correct dosage; as when I used it years ago it was not at all being...

what ingredients are in generic avinza

What is the difference in ingredients in generic Avinza, and Avinza. I am allergic to the generic. Need to know this. ## Hello, Paula! How are you? What type of allergic reaction did you have? What symptoms did you experience? Do you know what the markings were on the generic, or who the manufacturer was? It is made by several different companies, so I can't answer your question, without this additional information, since the inactive ingredients can vary from one company to another. The FDA lists this medication as being a 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. ## Avinza is a yellow & white capsule. The first generic was a blue capsule. My pressure dropped so ...

kadian in the generic form

This new generic form made me itch from top to bottom all day all night i........is this a heard of side effect from the new generic Med. ## Hello, Auntsansan! How are you? While the active ingredient is the same, the inactive ones can be different from the name brand, so there may be something in this one that you're allergic to. Have you had the itching checked out by your doctor? What are the markings on the ones you're taking? That is what would enable me to check the specific ingredients for you. Can you please post back with this information? The FDA lists this medication as being a 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.

avinza to suboxone?

I've been taking 90mg Avinza twice daily for about 11 years, with the addition of percoset 5mg 2-4x a day over the last two years. I still couldn't sleepplus had major anxiety issues, and after trying Ambien (awful!), Klonopin, Xanax & other meds that made me brain dead the next day, I finally began using cannabis with great success. It even relieved my pain by making me stop focusing on it. Then I scored a 21 on a drug panel at pain mgmnt and now they are tapering me off morphine & cold turkey on percocet. I've taken it for a decade and I'm terrified because I know my body is addicted. I don't drink, I barely smoked cannabis but will continue to and I've never abused my meds, but I know it will be a hard transition. Do I need to find a doctor to write fo...

2 120mg every night

I spent almost 2 years with awful leg and lower back pain seeing Dr.s from all over the place trying all kinds of back injections and Meds with no relief. I was seeing my PA when the AVINZA rep. came in. The drug was new and they said it was the best thing out there. I liked the fact that I only took it 1 time a day as a posed to (as needed ). It worked great and for the 1st time in years that I did not have pain every minute of every day I was so excited to be able to walk my dog and do some work again I did not do my homework looking into the new Med. I was about 4-5 mo. Into it when I found out the cost and the addictiveness of that much. It's 6 years later and with the cost and the insurance covering only half I have to come off this. I'm 63 and scared to death. I am going t...

avinza vs methadone

Do u know which med will likely give me more pain control and consistent relief: 10mg of methadone or 60 mg of avinza? I am currently taking methadone with very little relief and I was looking throughput my medical records and realized that approximately nine years ago I was taking avinza. I don't recall whether or not I had better pain control back then as compared to now because it's been so many years and my condition has worsened drastically in the past year. I wondering if anyone has any more information for me that could help me. compare the two medications. I'm not sure if I want to switch from methadone to avinza or ask to increase the methadone. Thank u. ## Hi Laura, Since your reaction to medication will be completely different than someone else's, no one can r...

I take 90 mg Avinza now can not afford

The new generic kadian how does it compare with avinza 90 mg on price. What does of kadian is equal to 90 mg avinza. ## Hi, George! How are you? Both Avinza an Kadian are just time released formulations of Morphine, thus the dosage, associated risks and side effects would all be the same. Learn more Morphine details here. There has actually been a 12hour time release formulation of it available as a generic for many years, thus you may want to talk to your doctor about taking it.
