It has been a bad day as well as night for me, I have been sleeping in a recliner since Jan 09 and then I only get 2 or 3 hrs a night I do not sleep in the daytime, and I didnt get any rest for the last 26 hrs, I go for my fusion next thursday and I am hoping it will alleviate some of the pain, I have Lupus also so I know it will not totally get rid of the pain but I would like to get some relief. I have been put on Kadian and I hate the feelings I have on it I have terrible mood swings and I dont want to be around anyone, I want them to take me off of it at my next visit. Has anyone else experienced the Kadian.Thanks for listening Tweety


  • I'm sorry you're having a bad day. Sleep is so important and so many of us find it a difficulty. Only recently I've been experiencing the same thing.

    If you are having such bad problems with the Kadian, will your doctor give you something else that won't give you those bad reactions? Perhaps a call to the doc is in order to get different meds for pain that will help you sleep and not give you those terrible side effects.

    Take care of yourself and I'm sending you a big gentle hug.
  • i just looked up kadian side affects and guess what....it can cause sleeplessness ....sound familiar?
