Which means I want to switch over to codeine contin instead of all the tylenol 4 so what doseage would you recommend - I have been on tylenol for 15 years and they truly do nothing for pain or my body. Many tks.
I'm confused, are you asking about MSContin or Codeine Contin? If you are on Tylenol #4 which has 60mg of codeine each which would be 480mg codeine per day, you would usually divide that in half which would be 240mg so codeine contin comes in 200mg strength so 1 tab of codeine contin 200mg every 12 hours. Codeine is about 1/12th the strength of morphine so if you were going to go to MSContin, you would take an MSContin 30mg every 12 hours. I am not as famliar with codeine contin as it is not available in the States but this info should be correct as to what I have researched. Hope this helped.
