    I Suffer from Fibro, osteoarthritis, horrible spine pain, well, lets face it, 24/7 kind of pain. This all started in 1996, and has gotten progressively worse.
    So, needless to say, I have been on just about every narcotic out there. I have started to take a 24hr. a day pill. The first one is called Kadian, you can look it up as well as the one that I am on now call Exalgo,
    Has anyone heard of it or is taking it.
    I would like some feedback on these 2 drugs.
    My biggest problem is that my hair is starting to this out and I was wondering if it could be the drug.

    Kadian is the time-release form of morphine. I took it but didn't like having to have it medicating me 24/7. Morphine gave me headaches so I switched to the fast-acting type and did better. Most docs do prefer the time-release form, though.

    Don't know much about the other. Have you done searches on them online?

    Love, Mikie
