i just wanted to let anyone who takes avinza my doctor gave me a card that gets the script for 20 dollars off every time you pick up a script. the rep gave my doctor the cards but im sure you could ask your doctor to contact a rep or the company directly and get one. it is a promotional thing.
i know all of our meds cost alot and avinza isnt cheap. i got mine for 10 dollars with the card

it is a morphine sulfate extended release capsule.
i take 3 (30mg) a day, instead of the 1800 mg of oxycontin i previously took
it is fairly new to the market which is why they are doing this promotional thing but the neat thing about this card is the fact that it is not a one time thing it is an everytime you fill the script instead.
i havent noticed any problems. if you can tolerate morphine and are taking large quantities of opiods you might want to ask you doctor about it. the best thing about it is that after a few days the only side effect i encountered a foggy brain. today even with the meds on board i can return to a regular life. i do pt 3 times a week and take a walk on the days im no there. i have returned to taking classes and writing a column for a local paper. it was a great choice choice for me and maybe it could for you to. it doesnt hurt that for the same amount of money i get my roxicodone $15s

I have tried just about every brand of long-acting morphine there is and it is it is by far the best. There is a better coupon on the kadian, which is another long acting morphine but not quite as smooth. That card covers the entire $50 co-pay.
Both are better taken twice a day even though they are 24 hour versions. I really don't notice of into wearing off. I do with kadian.
It's much better then MS Contin.
