... I don't want to give you bad info, but if I recall correctly you take the 360 and divide by 6 because of the 24 hour dosing of Avinza and that gives you 60 mg. You should be on 60 mg of Avinza. And if that is right, you are perfectly set up. ... (9 replies)

... Hey Babycakes...First of all, what is your Breakthrough med? Is it 10 mg. Percoset or 15 mg Oxycodone? You mention both. If it's straight Oxy, it comes in 5, 15, and 30 mgs. Said that, I need to also say, you really shouldn't have in rely on your BT meds on a regular basis. Your base med is obviously too low if you are taking your BT med everyday. As far as 240 mg...

... Hi Babycakes: From what Dave and Alan have posted to you, it sounds like you are grossly undermedicated. It sounds like you should be somewhere in the 200-300 mgs of Avinza, not figuring the BT meds into the formula. The important thing is you are at a doseage that is comfortable for you. I don't know if you mentioned it, but is your doctor a PM doc or your PCP? A lot of... (9 replies)

... I have a question about Avinza and MS Contin....I have a friend that is on Avinza and she says that it does not last for the full 12 hours. I know that Avinza is supposed to be taken every 24 hours, or in some cases can be taken every 12 hours. ... (3 replies)

... I just always wonder what meds others are on, compared to me, and what experiences they have had on them. I have had chronic back pain for 3 years, and have been on narcotics fairly steadily since then. Vicodin at first - 1 pill would knock out the pain immediately. After about a year, that wasn't working, so I upped it to 2 pills at a time (all dosage changes were with... (4 replies)
