... 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)
... Hi babycakes, Wow, that's a low dose of morphine compared to a heathy dose of oxy. The long acting MSO4 products do have some tough prescribing directions. They basically say to do the math conversion and start at half particularly if you haven't been exposed to morphine.Even if he used a 1:1 conversion which isn't absurd if you haven't taken morphine it would get you in the...

... 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)

... Hi Director,,Thanks for the reply,,OK what happened is I was taking 240mg Oxycontin an allowed up to 3 10mg percocets a day,It got to where I needed all my breakthru's an I was having to take all my meds closer together so I told my doctor,She said I needed more LA but instead of upping the Oxycontin she wanted to try the Meth,Well the seisure med I take is for seisure's an...

... 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...

... out my pain increasing because now the last 2 weeks have been awful an I'm facing another night of pain.Just wondering if she has me taking at 60mg anywhere near dosage of Oxycontin I was taking an does anyone out there who taakes it or has tried it can tell me how long it really last? ...

... Hmmmm ... I believe my question was answered. I was wondering if it was OK to speak of the milligrams of certain opiods. It's difficult for me to learn how to work this board ... I'm getting it just little by little. Nelee, The Newby (9 replies)
... I thought that I would go ahead and post another reply instead of adding onto my other one. Instead of just having the opiod/opiate you might also want to consider trying one of the nerve pain medications. I don't know if you have tried any of these besides the tramadol. There are many including: Anti-seizure medications: Lyrica, Neurontin, Trileptal, Tegretol, Topomax ... (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)
... work with you on dose. This is very common practice when trying something new. When I switched from methadone to MS Contin the pain doc started me at a certain dosage of the MS Contin and we eventually upped the dose fairly significantly before finding an acceptable pain level. ... (2 replies)
... Hey Cpap, I'm far from an expert, I'm sure Shoreline and alot of others will be able to help you alot more than I can, but one thing I do know is that 30mg Avinza doesn't even come close in comparing to 75mcg Duragesic every two days. ... (9 replies)
... Thanks Guys.Man I posted a long message thur.nite an somehow it got lost in cyberville,made me so mad an was hurting too bad to do it over so hoping this one goes thru.Anyway I ended up going to see my doctor that afternoon because I didn't want to be hurting so bad all week-end an she doubled my dose to 120mg.It has helped much better but still needing all 3 breakthru's which...

... I agree that it is a low convesion and not at all suprising that you are having more pain. i switched from 90mg of oxycodone to 180mg of morphine and it worked very well for almost a year until my condition changed for the worse. while i think my doc was generous on the 2:1 conversion the general rule is oxy is considered 50% stronger then morphine. i was switched...

... Thanks Dave & Alan,,Yes I am lucky to have good doctor's who understand my pain an I guess it makes sense to start low an work up,I guess I was so used to having my pain controlled an these changes have brought it all back,just how bad it is.But I'm sure they'll up it as needed,,Just 30mg sounded so low but I know all medicines are different.I was in hospital little over month...

... I have been on Avinza 230 days. I am at 180mg a day and it cuts most of the pain. I did not feel anything when I went from 120 to 180mg. Except the pain was decreased quite a bit. ... (4 replies)
... m doctor about this. Like mpvt and badoldback said, this is a time released medication and has a wide range of strengths, so you may need to have an increase in dosage or allow more time for it to build up in your system. ... (4 replies)
