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 ...

I am currently taking Opana ER 20mg 3xday. It is VERY costly &was wondering if anyone knew if the maker of this med gives low income people a discount or coupon?? ## They currently do not have a program of that nature. Many, many people need such a program but generally you can't get help for pain management. I am on Opana IM & ER @ $1760.00 a month. Thank God for my insurance! ## Yes, getting assistance for these types of medications is very difficult. If you have no insurance at all, you can try: PPARX.org and see if they have a program to help. Have you tried asking your doctor for another alternative? ## Visit and print a free discount drug card. You will receive substantial discounts for you, your family and Pets. ## If you can not afford your pain medications the best...

Opana 40 Mg
18 Replies RSS
I have been taking Opana er 40mg for over a year. My last refill was April 12, i was given a round pill with 40 on one side and E on the back. I am in constant pain! Any suggestions, I take 3 per day with 10/325 percocets 4x day. The pharmacy told the Dr. i must have been crushing my pills - i wasn't. I'm not crazy, these pills don't work. ## The Opana time released tablets were recently reformulated, with the intent to make them harder to abuse. Unfortunately, just as with the OxyContin reformulation, this has caused problems for some people, such as unusual side effects, or the medication not working as well as it used to. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Don't feel like you're crazy ! ! ! I'm upset with all the pain dr.Who have been giving his pat...

after 2 car accidents..me being the passenger i suffered a great deal of pain n my back my pain management dr prescribed opana er and oxycodone 30 mg for breakthrough pain i took the opana er for 3 yrs and suddenly they changed the formula and they did not work at all.is there any chance that they will change the formula back to what it used to be? the old formula worked great for me..i was in alot less pain i was walking better and alot less nerve pain..for me it was a miracle drug and i did not feel high from it. i just felt so much better than i did with any other meds..so do you think they will ever bring back the old opanas because i did not feel any relief from the new ones that they made so my dr put me on 30 mg morphine er but they give me a feeling of being high where the old opan

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
356 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...

what s stronger than opana
5 Replies RSS
I do not know why anyone hasn't mentoned methadone ? Opana. Diaudid are both IR drugs. The pain relief never lasts long and tolerance develops quickly. Methadone is an instant release medication whose long half life cannot be beat. There is a new law or regulation that if your pain management Doctor has you on methadone that an EKG has to be done each year. Evidently methadone can contribute to heart arythmias but lower dose's ( under 80mg ) seem to be fine. 80 mg of methadone will keep almost anyone pain free ( and possibly asleep) and the duration is 24 hours. I was on methadone maintenance for years but not for chronic pain I am an addict but now in recovery from all drugs and etoh but methadone is a great pain medication for chronic pain sufferers but has a bad reputation be...

Best Rehab Center for treatment of Opana
1 Reply RSS
My husband is an addict. He has been taking Opana for 2 years+ with Lyrica. Looking for a treatment center, preferably in the NorthEast but will send him wherever. ## Is he taking them via doctor's prescription, or is he obtaining them elsewhere? And if they are prescribed, is he abusing them by taking more than the amount prescribed? If he's just taking them according to his doctor's instructions, he's not actually an addict and he can work with his regular doctor to taper off of them. A slow taper is safest and would prevent most of the withdrawal effects. Withdrawal symptoms, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, fever, chills and diarrhea.

Ocycontin vs Opana - Medicare coverage
2 Replies RSS
One pharmacy states an all out rejection of coverage for OxyContin, referring Opana instead. Another pharmacy requires a PA. How can this be? ## Hello, Sissie! How are you? What type of insurance do you have? I assume that these decisions are based on that. One pharmacy may not be aware that it can be covered with prior authorization. The FDA classifies this medications as being narcotic analgesics that carry the risk of being habit forming. They may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Which one has your doctor recommended? ## I am covered by Medicare Part D, and use WellCare. Doctor has prescribed OxyContin ER 15mg. 2x daily for severe pain under foot after surgery. As I do not drive, and usually end up walking a good 5 miles per da...

47 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...
