    Hi all,
    I went to my pain clinic and they started me on Kadian 30mg. once a day. I have percocet and ultram for break thru pain.

    I am hoping this gives me some relief.

    I had already tried the duragesic patch last year and I hated it. I did nothing but sleep. I missed the whole summer. I am hoping this Kadian doesn't do that.

    God bless and good luck to all.

    hi meowwee,
    glad you have a good doc who understands pain management.

    I started on kadian, also, and it is a nice steady relief, i really didn't think it was working for awhile, then i stopped it and found out my doc was right--it was working but was so subtle i wasn't aware of how much til i stopped it.
    when i started it was on 20 daily, first week or so i felt "overmedicated" about 3 pm, then after got used to that needed it twice/day for evenings were bad and esp. mornings. Have been settled in at 30 twice day for about 6 months now, and i have been getting good results with the new mirapex prototocol so i hope to come off soon.
    i have vicoden 10/500 and actiq for breakthru.
    Good luck--L

    That's what I am hoping for. I have only taken it for 2 days and haven't noticed much yet. I sure hope I have good results like you.

    God bless.
