Sheryl Says:
I have MS and need pain relief I don't like the stigma oxycontin has to it. I simply don't find it helpful. Is Opana a good subsitute. I take 5 mg of oxycodone for break thru pain. but sometimes it is not enough. If I don't deal with the pain oppropriatly I get sicker and more fatique. I am not familiar with narcotics at all. I will admit a fear of them. Any answers Please

Still Suffering Says:
I have herniated disks in my t-spine and have tried almost everything out there. I started on 20 mg 2 times a day but it didn't last long enough, so I switched to 10 mg 3 times a day which gave me better coverage. However, Opana is expensive and the side effects are going to cause me to change again. I have experience extreme weakness and unusual tiredness. Everything I do is a struggle because I am so weak. I also have experience blurred vision at a distand and difficulty reading small print up close. Further, I have difficultly taking deep breathes, which makes relaxation techniques difficult. Not worth it for me.

Don't be afraid of anything except addiction cause that's all there is to it. Opana is definitely not as strong as oxycontin. But it works, it does not catch you a buzz either like an oxy would.

Opana has the side affects simalar to morphine, the tiredness, the bad sleep. To me, it is just another expensive pill. Oxicodone is the best because it relives the pain, but does not make one real drowsy. stay away from ALL opiats if you can. The rtoad back is slim, not many make it.

Pharm Says:
Opana er will stop your pain but oxycontin will make you feel better. Opana er will only make you sleepy with no high whatsoever. It contains Narcan which reverses the opiate effect. This means you cant get a high off of it like you ca oxycontin. Opana er will make you bad sleepy. Thats all i wanted to do is sleep all the time on opana er. Thats why i had my doc change me to oxycontin.

The Truth Says:
Oxycontin is better than opana er. Opana er is better than lortab for pain but if u want a buzz then a lortab 10mg is better than an opana er 40mg. Thats the truth. My friend has opana er 40mg for $12 each and lortab 10mg for $5 each and i buy the tabs anyday over the opana er 40mg for $12 all day any day.

The first post was from a person who is suffering from MS! They are not looking for a buzz!! You should seriously think about changing your little's not cute.....pill-popping idiots like you are making it SO difficult for the REAL patients to get the treatment they need. Try walking in the shoes of a person that suffers from all the junkies on this site: GO AWAY. there are REAL people on here with REAL problems and they don't need to see your stupid little comments about getting high and what pills are stronger and how to shoot them up.....grow up and get help. You never know, you could be the one suffering from MS one day....

Most of the people who have responded to this post seem to think that the "buzz" is important. When you're trying to treat real pain the "buzz" is the last thing on the patients mind. Only a junkie would worry about such things. This site is for people with REAL medical issues. They are simply looking for good advice that may make their quality of life a bit better.

I' happy someone spoke up to those fools looking for a buzz. I was on oxycontin 60 mg for rsd I was doing well on them. Then they reformulated it and it stopped working right away. Over last few months been trying to get someone to listen even reported to FDA. My last appt they offered to up my oxycontin to 80 mg I said why bother they r all reformulated so every time my pain went up so did my BP to point they wanted to give drug for that. Finally six mo later I get opana er 40 mg take two twice a day I asked why so much she said they r not as strong so I agreed tons two wk trial. It takes some pain away but not long enough. Now when I go back next wk I don't know what to say or ask for. Neway that's What doc told me. Hope it helps. It does make u sleepy but that foes away when body ajuusts to it. And the new oxycontin labeled op has narcan also. Stop using them for pleasure so all of us pain get treatment right away And w right meds instead of doc having to get to know u better before helping us. So go on ur way And don't give advice on meds when u don't have a clue as to what u say. Thank God those of us in real pain not looking for a buzz that read ur posts w no medical knowledge just junky knowledge. Know better than to listen to u. Drs have rules to follow - one is take pain seriously and treat it. Best wishes u get right meds its trial and error. We have to try everything out there till we find what. We all react differently than another. So opana er may work for u and oxycontin for someone else.

Thank you Sarah!!! As someone with Psoriatic Arthritis & fibromyalgia for almost 20 years, it absolutely disgusts me to hear these idiots comparing the quality of the "buzz" for different pain meds. My ankylosing spondylitis has been flaring lately, making it impossible for me to sit to stand. My doctor started me on Opana ER, 10 mg, 1 every 12 hours, and I can not believe the difference it has made in my pain. I am not pain free, but I never will be. The only problem I've had is breakthrough pain, so I will go back this week for an adjustment. But other than that, after being on pretty much everything for pain relief, this stuff is great. After 2 days I just noticed a great diminishment of my pain, without being sleepy or "high". I have a 4 year old, and if it's going to impair me in anyway I am not going to take it. So thank you Sarah for speaking up for chronic pain patients looking for relief. Thank you to all the drug-seekers for your advice on what to take for a "buzz"; I now know what not to take. Truly it is people like you who make it impossible for chronic pain patients to be treated with respect for trying to gain relief and function.

MS: Sheryl, I am sorry to hear of your suffering. I have a dear friend with MS, and she's started taking something called LDN, low dose naltrexone. I took it for a few months for my fibromyalgia and it made a tremendous difference in my pain, except for my arthritic pain which now seems to have flared and is why I am taking the Opana ER. The LDN websites have alot of info regarding the use of this medication and amazing stories of patients with MS who've done 180 degree turn arounds. Never hurts to look! Best of luck to you in your search for relief. God bless!

You guys getting out here buying this opana that is not prescribed for you and thinking you are not getting a "buzz" because you aren't getting the "sleepy affect" then turning around and mixing it with xanax and alcohol and God knows what else is why you are ending up in our ER's overdosing and DEAD!!! Wake up people! If a medication is NOT prescribed for you then you should not be taking might not wake up one day!! And for what? A "buzz"? Is it really worth it?
