Kadian® (morphine sulfate ER) is a prescription medicine that provides around-the-clock pain relief. It is a narcotic that produces pain-relieving effects by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body. Kadian capsules, which hold tiny extended-release pellets that contain morphine, are specially designed to release the morphine evenly throughout the day. You should talk to your healthcare provider before taking Kadian if you have asthma, liver disease, or a history of drug or alcohol dependence.
