How Much Morphine Is Opana 10 Mg Equal To?

My Dr prescribed opana er 10 mg for pain. I was prescribed morphine sulfate er 60 mg and at one time was prescribed as much as 130 mg before i had surgery(gastric bypass which took a lot of pressure off of my back) and allowed me to lower my dosage. But since I've changed to Opana Er its just not enough for the pain. I don't sleep and if I do doze of I wake up from the pain. I'm desperate for help and think I need to be put back on morphine sulfate. My Gastric Dr instructed me to chew, crush or break my medications but with extended release you can't do that. Many pain management is almost greeting ready to send me to another state where they can treat me more efficiently. I can't afford to be going back and fourth to another state. I want to get my gastric Dr to approve my taking morphine er so I won't be in such pain. I think that might be the only way my passion management Dr will prescribe it to me. Is my only hope. So how much is this Opana equal to.

The most likely reason your gastro was telling you to chew it is because doing so can help get some directly into the areas of the esophagus that are irritated, as you swallow it. Sometimes ENT's will have someone due this if they have a severely painful tonsil or throat infection, as well.

However, you are correct that it's not safe to do with time released medications, because you may get too much of it at once.

As to the strength comparison, the Oxymorphone in Opana is 3 times stronger than Morphine, so each 10mgs of it is equal to 30mgs of Morphine.

There are higher dosages of it available, so just raising it may help you more and it may not be necessary to go back to Morphine. Morphine can be a tricky medication and, in some cases, may actually make pain worse when inflammation is involved, because it can aggravate it, thus you may be better of avoiding it, if you can.

What is the current gastric problem you're having that's causing the pain?
