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 ## BEEN ON OPANA AND THE ER FOR ABOUT 10 MONTHS NOW. I LIKE IT. DOESN'T SEEM TO MAKE YOU SLEEPY AFTER THE 2nd DAY. MY PAIN LEVEL STAY AT ABOUT A 3 TO A 6 NOW WHEN IT WAS A 10. ## ## 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. Howev...

I have some very painful condition which I am on Oxycontin 30 mg twice a day and 10/325 oxycodone / APAP. I am on disability I am 36 years old and when my medicare kicks in and my drug plan does not cover Oxycontin so I had a list of drugs they would cover and Opana ER is one that is covered and he wants to start me on Opana ER 10 mg he mention fentanyl patches also I am looking for pain relief not the high.

Formulation changes in opana er
I heard there is a newly formulated opana er, is this true? Do they make you sick like the newly formulated oxycontin? ## For some people, yes it does appear to be as problematic as the new Oxycontin. There have been very similar complaints that range from its not working as well as the old formulation, to its being said to cause odd side effects. Learn more Opana information here. However, what you have to remember is that the people posting on any given website are a very small percentage of the number taking any given medication. And the reason they were looking for the site to post, is because they were having a problem, the people that take it without a problem usually aren't posting. Are there any other questions or comments?

problem with opana
Has anyone had a problem with having orgasms taking opana ## Haha you'll get that with any ole narcotic!!! ## Yes problems with that. ## when i take opana i cannot get my nut for the life of me but ive heard ppl say that they cannot get hard or have a orgasm so its normal :) ## yep, it is a problem with most opiate meds ## Ha ha! I was just getting ready to post the same thing. I am taking both Opana and Dilaudid and it is killing my ability to orgasm. The female orgasm is a little tricky sometimes anyway and this is a deal breaker. Driving me bonkers and I am constantly "frustrated". I am wishing I knew if it was the Opana or Dilaudid or both... Not to be offensive but when I do orgasm it is nothing like I am used to. It is a total let down. Any advice or suggestions?

color and shape and markings of op
I was on 200mgs of oc and they changed the formula and all I did was stay sick from it. The Dr switched me to opana er and the insurance wont't pay for it so what do I do now ## Have you and your doctor discussed your possibly using Morphine? There is also a time released version of it, called MS Contin and it is available as a generic, so most insurances will cover it. It is also a narcotic, so the side effects would be similar and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and dizziness. Learn more: ## have Md get prior op. its. a from his MA sends into them. if still does work get copy of their formula (which. is want they will cover.) oh, and ask if Md has any coupons which helps the costs.

Switch to Opana
I was wounded in Combat. My doc has had me on Oxycontin with Oxycodone for breakthru pain. The Opana is WORLDS better for pain without the euphori. I highly recommend it. ## the Opana is slightly stronger than the oxycontin depending upon the old doseage, the Opana also has hi sedation effects so please be careful if behind a steering wheel
