Avinza 3x a Day?
Aug 2, 2004
... or 24 hours of relief, you do still have some in your sytem so some overlap is expected when taking a 12 hour med 3 times a day.Have you compared the price of Avinza VS MSContin or Kadan. ... (4 replies)
... Everyone responds differently to different meds and doses. I'd just have a discussion with your doctor at your next appointment about how you have had an increase in pain lately (also specify if the pills aren't lasting as long as they used to, such as 4 hours instead of 6 hours or whatever). Yes, for chronic pain which hasn't responded to other treatments a long acting med... (14 replies)
... I've not specifically tried Ms Contin, but I do use LA morphine...First Avinza, and now Kadian. I've read from many who have tried all three morphines that Ms Contin doesn't last nearly as long as the other two. I've had great success with Kadian 3 x. I've also used OC and the patch, and IMHO, Kadian has been best by far for me. LA morphine is more calming for me,... (5 replies)

... I think all are about the same, if you take them 2 x day. I started out on Avinza 1 x, but had to move to 2 x, and it's worked fairly well since. I think the main issue with morphine, is to ensure you get the coverage every 12 hours. ... (2 replies)
... more wide awake. I also don't have to remember to take the MSContin or set alarms to go off during the day. I take the Avinza when I get up. I still need breakthrough drugs but I don't have to take Provigil as much anymore. Also the constipation problem isn't as troubling either. ... (14 replies)

... As far as 240 mg Oxycontin, and switching to Methadone, I was taking 480 mg Oxycontin and I'm now on 180 mg of Meth, with no BT medication. Why are you taking a seizure med that interfers with the Methadone? ... (9 replies)
... orrow an go see her because she only gave me enough for a week an I will run out an still be in pain.Just curious about how much it would take to be close to the Oxycontin I was taking.Is there a chart anywhere online that may show that? ... (9 replies)
... After almost 5 years of taking Oxy-contin 160mg a day, I was intoroduced to Avinza. I can honestly tell you it works. The only part that I disagree is the indication that it lasts for 24 hours. In my opinion it doesnt, but then again oxy-contin didnt either. You wont get the up and down buzz like you might from oc either. I came to realize how irritable oc made me, something I...

... Weaver, To answer your question about different pain meds and names etc. You should first probably know that there are many "Brand" names that people get confused about. For instance, Lortab, Norco, Vicodon, are all Hydrocodone. You mentioned being on 5/500. This is a low dose of Hydrocodone and 500 mg of Tylenol. They make Hydro up to 10 mg and anywhere from 325 mg of... (10 replies)
... Thank you for the info....I am now wondering if I can change from MSIR 30 mg to roxicodone for the immediate relief. I am on the oxycodone 20mg for long lasting pain relief. Can you take both of these together? (2 replies)

These drugs did nothing.........so took me off Actiq, and added Kadian 60 bid......still nothing......then changed Kadian to Avinza 120 bid and still duragesic 100.....still no pain relief.
