Q: How does a KADIAN 100mg compare to Oxycontin 40mg
How does KADIAN 100 mg compare to 40 mg Oxycontin
The Kadian would be a little stronger. 100 mg. of Kadian (morphine sulfate) would be equal to between 45 and 60 mg. of OxyContin.
WELL LIKE I WAS ACTUALLY TOLD TODAY FROM A PHARMACIST CAUSE I WAS JUST ASKING THE SAME QUESTION AND HE TOLD ME IT IS LIKE COMPARING APPLES AND ORANGES THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT EFFECT BUT.... I WAS ON 200MG.X'S 4 A DAY WHICH IS 800 MG A DAY AND HE TOLD ME THAT IT WOULD BE ABOUT EQUILVELENT TO ABOUT 80 MG'S X 3 A DAY OF OXYCODONE AND I EVEN ASKED HIM IF HE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME THE OXYCODONE AND HE SAID HE PERSONALLY THOUGHT SO. SO THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IN MY OPINION WOULD BE IT IS PROBABLY CLOSE TO BEING THE SAME DOSAGE BUT MY GUESS IS THAT YOU WOULD PROBABLY BENEFIT MORE PAIN RELIEF FROM THE OXYCODONE AND NOT FEEL AS SLEEPY OR WORE DOWN CAUSE I SURE DID ON THE MORPHINE AND THATS WHAT KADIAN IS .. WHAT I WAS TOLD ANYWAY. GOOD LUCK AND TAKE CARE..........KIMBER
