AVINZA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Chronic Pain “BRING BACK AVINZA! I’ve had a C1-C2 Chronic Pain for 36 years now. The closest I have come to how things were before some illegal drunk in an 18-wheeler truck was allowed to kill two friends, change another friend’s life, & ruin my life, has been AVINZA. It’s been a year & my life again turned upside down, as I have yet to find another Morphine that compares to AVINZA. Of course I am refused to try MS- Contin, or Oxy-contin, even though I’ve taken Narcotics responsibly now for almost 25 years. Just bring back AVINZA, as I know there has to be other people like me, though I fear from experience- that we who suffer from Chronic Pain, are looked at as irrelevant, and why AVINZA was taken away from us!”

For Chronic Pain “I have cervical stenosis, multiple disc herniations, fibromyalgia and myofacial pain syndrome, etc since teen years. 38 now. Been to several pain clinics and docs on meds, narcotics but none helped me like avizia. I take 90mg plus 10/325 percocet as needed for break thru and it helps so much. I have only constipation and I take amitiza for that, I’m happy my insurance covers it.”

For Chronic Pain “Took for chronic pain of knee, back had half of 2 vertebra removed and fibromyalgia. This medicine did not work at all for me. I have taken oxycodone and methadone for pain and they made things bearable. This medicine did no good at all. I was only given 20 mgs a day after 80mg a day methadone and 80mg oxycodone. This is all the pain clinic would prescribe so I had to go back to methadone that makes me gain weight and my teeth are rotting out but I can function and have relief of pain. Still have pain but I can bear it.”

For Chronic Pain “It worked great on my Hyper-Mobility Syndrome! (All of my joints are “double-jointed”) Which causes chronic pain for years & gets worse with age. The only side effect I’ve had is constipation. With Avinza I actually have a better quality of life!”

For Pain “I was on Avinza for about 6 years for chronic pain and so far it has been the best medication that I have ever been prescribed. Unfortunately I have had to switch medicines due to the cost of them. I have still been unable to find a medicine that works as well with my pain. I can manage the pain with MS Contin but I have to take more pills a day than with the Avinza. So anybody out there that truly needs to find some relief, my advice is to try it if you can afford it.”

For Pain “I never heard of this medicine. After being on every pain medicine (I thought) out there and still in horrid pain, I was about to give up, I couldn’t live with the pain. I saw a new PM and he got me off my high dose of Oxycontin which did nothing for me along with Dilaudid and Roxicodone and put me on 240 once a day with 30 MSIR at 4 hrs. The MSIR does not help, I have to get something else, and the 240 has done things nothing ever has before. I can walk again, have some quality of my life back, not stoned feeling, it’s amazing. I still have pain, I need to get my dosage adjusted. This is by far a miracle for me and my family. I don’t sleep with a foot massager.”
