Opana Overview

Oxymorphone (Opana, Numorphan, Numorphone) or 14-Hydroxydihydromorphinone is a powerful semi-synthetic opioid analgesic (painkiller) first developed in Germany in 1914,[2] patented in the USA by Endo Pharmaceuticals in 1955[3] and introduced to the United States market in January 1959 and other countries around the same time.[1] The brand name Numorphan is derived by analogy to the Nucodan name for an oxycodone product (or vice versa) as well as Paramorphan/Paramorfan for dihydromorphine and ...

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg
55 Replies RSS
i have new pesription and my dr. wants me to try opana 10mg. is this drug stonger and how much stonger than my last drug oxycodone 30mg.. ## The Oxymorphone in Opana is stronger than Oxycodone, but you aren't on an equivalent dose, it would take 15mgs of it to equal each 30mg dose of the Oxycodone. Learn more Opana details here. So, in reality, it's twice as strong, but you may not get as much pain relief, since you aren't on an equivalent dosage. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I have severe Venous insufficiency,anxiety disorder,cirrhossis,osteoarthitis ,severe fractered leg, sixth cranial nerve palsey ,legs are black and necrotic,spleen very enlarged , anvanced hep c,plates left arm old injury , insomonia ,ptsd,inopperable dueto such low platleat count 35,000...

White Round Pill With Capital E in a circle on one side and the number 5 on the other
5 Replies RSS
is pretty small and has what looks to be a capitol E circled on one side and the number 5 on the other.. I'm clueless because i haven't found ANY RESULTS. ## Based on your description, the closest match I could find is a small round light pink pill imprinted with "E" on one side and "5" on the other. However there doesn't appear to be an additional circle around the letter E, as you mentioned. This particular pill is identified as Opana ER (5mg). Manufacturer: Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. Opana is indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain and also as a preoperative medication to alleviate apprehension, maintain anesthesia, and as an obstetric analgesic. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Opana Details I hope this helps! ## This is defin...

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
357 Replies RSS
my Dr prescribed Opana 40mg as alternative to Oxy 80 mg 2 twice a day which I would insufflate - I didn't tell him this of course. he claimed them to be just as good if not stronger can any one share about opana 40mg ## Inhaling medications that are not intended for that method of usage is very dangerous. You run the risk of overdose and creating blockages in your lungs, which can lead to breathing problems, embolisms and stroke. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, this is a potent narcotic pain reliever. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. THis dosage is about the same as what you were taking of the Oxycontin. Do you have any other questions? ## i was taking three oc 40's a day, when the new op 40's came out they seemed to...

is opana a mixture of morphine and oxycodone?
6 Replies RSS
is opana a mixture of morphine and oxycodone? i know that it is oxymorphone, but i don't know what that is and i am allergic to morphine. ## No, Oxymorphone is a complete, separate compound, it does not contain Morphine or Oxycodone. However, it is distantly related to Morphine and there is a warning about it being used in patients who are sensitive to or allergic to Morphine. While it is rare, some can be allergic to this, as well. Has your doctor prescribed it or suggested using it? Are they aware of your allergy? Learn more: ## I'm allergic to Morphine and I take 4 40MG Opana ER a day.I've been taking them for 4 months now and no reactions. ## I need a new strong pain killer, not the gradual release kind. I've been taking 8mg. Of Hydromorphone 3x a day for 4yrs. My Pa...

I believe my dad died from Opana IR
2 Replies RSS
My dad had a surgery done on his shoulder and they prescribed her Opana IR 20mg. He had late stage COPD and he wasn't taking any narcotic pain medication prior the surgery. I take Opana myself and it a powerful medication. I know these type of medicines can affect your breathing at high doses. I know Opana is two times stronger the oxycodone. So it is like taking 40 mg of oxycodone. I don't know why they didn't give him like hydrocodone or oxycodone instead at a lower dose. It would been different if he was taking these class of medication where he would been use to them in his system. He was very doped up when he can home that day he was never fully awake after leaving the hospital my mom gave him the medicine about 4 hours after getting home. He fell to sleep in his favori...

Pink pill on with 93 on one side and 02 on the other
2 Replies RSS
Pink pill one side 93 and 02 on the other.They are Opana 10mg instant release! I get them EVERY month! ## That is correct, though these are the generic for Opana and aren't instant release tablets, they are actually regular release. Once you swallow them, they'll take about 15 to 20 minutes to start working. Learn more Oxymorphone details here. Instant release formulations usually require a capsule, otherwise it takes awhile for you to start digesting something, so it can start to enter your blood stream and have its intended effect. Are there any questions or concerns? ## This pill will do nothing for you at all its like taking a hydrocodone 5mg!!!

40MG OPANA GENERIC
8 Replies RSS
ALL I WANT TO KNOW ARE THEY COMING OUT WITH 40MG OPANA IN GENERIC, NEED TO PAY LESS IT JUST TO MUCH MONEY. ## Yes they are and already started senting them out. Check Impax web site and call them. They will tell you. You may need to have your pharmacy order them. They are much cheaper. ## A lot of it is going to depend on when the supplier for your local pharmacy can get them in. Learn more Opana details here. Every pharmacy can only order a limited supply of each controlled substance each month, so if they've already stocked up on the name brand, they won't be able to order in the generic for you, yet. Under the new laws, there is nothing they can do about it. So, it may take a month or two, before they become available to you. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Has ...

Generic Opana ER
67 Replies RSS
Wanted to share with everyone how happy I am to have finally received the new generic Opana ER 20mg tablets from my pharmacy. I had found Opana to be very effective for my chronic pain and was very sad when they switched it over to the new formula as it wasn't nearly effective as the original octagon shaped tablets and caused stomach aches. These new generic ones seem to me to be as effective as the original formula had been. The tablets I received show to be made by Global Pharmaceuticals and are a small, round, green tablet with G73 imprinted on them. I'm happy to report that these are just like the original formula. Now I no longer have stomach aches from taking those plastic pills that Endo is selling. I sure do hope that these remain as they are, but I have read a couple ar...

ignorance of what constitutes a narcotic
1 Reply RSS
I am amazed that people are so ignorant of what constitutes a narcotic. I grew up when opana(sp?) were made by Endo and looked exactly like a Percodan and responded to water the same. Pharmacies carried coke and like Dilaudid in liquid and powdered form. Those were the days. ## You "grew up" ??? Um, Opana is pretty new,so I'm not sure how you grew up and taking this med do young? All drugs respond to water! Sounds like you've hit your Opana bottle too hard, lady!

do they make 80 mg opana
1 Reply RSS
I know they make a 40 mg er opana . But do they make a 80 mg er opana ?? ## No, the 40mg is the maximum dosage available. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
