    I'll have a guess at this one....

    Maybe Avinza??

    Avinza is a long acting formulation of morphine - approved about two years ago.

    Hi,

    I have taken Avinza it's the same as morphine. I was on 10mg and was so totally high that I had to break the pills in half! What it with this stuff, it's potent and addictive! but it is the greatest on serious pain.

    <>< Peace Sue

    I got prescribed avenza. However my pain doctor put the wrong date on my script and I have to waite until next week to get it and he refuses to change it. I have never taken it before. I have had two back surgeries and my spine is now deterating around my facet joints. He perscribed me Avenza 30 mg will that knock me on my butt. I have taken 50mg dura gesic patches last year. that didn't bother me. I have heard this is strong stuff. Is it morphine sulfate or pure morphine? Also is it time released and for how long? I can't find anything on this medication and my doctor hurried me out the door.

    The Name is Avenza,
    I was perscribed the 30mg it did very little, 60 mg a little better. The product works better after several weeks, I do not feel high at all. I have had cronic pain since I was a child this product really shows alot hope for people like me.
    I wonder how much differant it is from OxyCotin. Avenza makes me a little sleepy some times. My questton is does OxyCotin make anyone sleepy.

    I was prescribed this drug today to replace the 100 duragesic patch. I hate those things... great for pain but the adhesive hurts & makes the skin raw.I too am looking for info on avinza 60 mg. capsules. I would just like to be pain tolarant & know a little about what I'm taking.

    i take avinza 90mg for chronic pain associated with interstitial cystitis.it is a 24 hour time released morphine.i believe that initially 10% is of total dose is released at once and the rest over a 24 hour period.it has been a life saver for me.before i had to take 1-2 percocets every 4 hours.they as well vicoden (various formulas) contain lots of tylenol which is known to damage the liver at high doses. good luck with pain control!!

    I have been taking one 90mg capsule a day for the past 4 months. I find it helps quite a bit with the pain but on occasion, a headache does manage to sneak through the "morpine barrier". I then take a tylenol and that helps with that.

    I would recommend these to anyone in chronic pain.
