Re: Avinza and MS Contin
Thank you for responding to my question. My friend has Fibromyalgia, and has had it for over 5 years now. She has tried so many different things for her pain, both traditional pain medicines as well as holistic treatments. Her pain doctor has had her on Dilaudid, Norco, Vicodin, MSIR, the Duragesic patch, and she now uses Actiq for her breakthrough pain and the Avinza for her regular pain med. But she has never tried MS Contin....we met through a support group, since I too, have Fibromyalgia as well as a very rare kidney disease. I currently take MS Contin, but it is such a high dosage that I felt I really couldn't help her with her decision to try and switch meds.
I completely agree with you Shoreline that nothing will ever take our pain away 100%. But unfortunately, I've seen my friend suffer when the doctor switched pain medications because it didn't seem like it was an equal conversion. That's why I was curious about the Avinza and MS Contin. Thank you both for your responses.
