Kadian

What is Kadian?

MS Contin is a brand of a time-released formulation of morphine sulfate, usually taken every twelve hours for chronic pain. MS Contin is a trademark of Purdue Pharma.

In the United States, MS Contin is available in tablet in doses of 15mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg. In Australia, MS Contin tablets are available in doses of  5mg, 10mg, 15mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg, and as a suspension, in doses of 20mg, 30mg, 60mg, 100mg and 200mg. It is typically prescribed in cases of severe pain where prolonged opioid therapy is indicated. As of March 2014, it has been noted that pharmacists in Florida were recently informed that the 15mg. dosage is no longer available, but doctors are still widely unaware of this and are still prescribing it to patients.
