Kadian and Morphine are the same. Please bare in mind that medicines are named by:

- their generic name (morphine)
- brand name (kadian)

So, in your case, kadian is the trade name of morphine. You got used of kadian and think it works great for you. Meanwhile, you are still taking the ingredient of kadian (i.e. morphine).
