... You may need to adjust your dose to 60mgs bid.Your doctor has to start you at a dose he thinks will work.I'm sure he would expect you to ask for an increase if it isn't working.This is your pain so don't be afraid to say " hey,this isn't working I need to raise my dose".Good luck to you and hang in there....Dave:) (4 replies)

Jun 26, 2014
... ours out of Avinza, so it could be worth a try before going to a different med, assuming you were doing well on the Kadian. Interesting they won't cover generic Kadian but will cover the brand name Avinza. It must end up being cheaper for them. What does your doctor suggest? ... (2 replies)
