This is my first post- i'm so scared bc somehow i'm out of oxycontin that i've been taking for incapacitatingly bad chronic pelvic pain before i can see my dr. i'm taking 80mg 3 x a day for a few years now, since surgery that wasn't successful. i'm terrified to think about having withdrawal sx and even more about being in the pain
Sorry to start here as a new person when so desperate.
Anyways i really need to try to use the kadian (100mg caps) i have from a few years ago 2005 or avinza (90 mg or 60 mg caps) to help me get to my appt in three days. i also have two duragesic patches, one is 75mcg and one is 50mcg. - that exp in 2005 - i hope that my meds are still good.
Does anyone know what the equivalent dose would be - changing from oxycontin 240 mg a day to the morphine or patches? i'm too worried about the patches i think, unless someone is encouraging that it would be the best thing.
Thanks so much for any info.
Best wishes to you in your situation also,
