Opana Overview

Oxymorphone (Opana, Numorphan, Numorphone) or 14-Hydroxydihydromorphinone is a powerful semi-synthetic opioid analgesic first developed in Germany in 1914,[3] patented in the USA by Endo Pharmaceuticals in 1955[4] and introduced to the United States market in January 1959 and other countries around the same time. It (along with hydromorphone) was designed to have less incidence of side effects than morphine and heroin. The brand name Numorphan is derived by analogy to the Nucodan name for an ...

opana costs too much for the same thing that oxymorphone does(essentially the same drug)..Opana is about $500=/- oxymorphone is $47. Opana has no high if that's what you are after...check into oxymorphone,,,,save $ and frustration. ## opana and oxymorphone are the same thing, and you can get high off it. They are avaliable in 10's ir and 20's & 50's in er. ## Opana works for me. I just picked up 130 pills for $1,000 and some change. Worth every penny. ## i took oxymorphine before is tat ifferent than hydromorpone i justcant believe the way people judge people that obviously are suffering blows me away ## if u picked up 130 of any type of opana it is well worth your money. you could sale it for more than that ## Opana ER's are available in: 10mg. 20mg. 30mg. 40mg....

Doc shorted me on Opana, told me to stretch
I recently had my second back surgery, a double fusion. I was on fentanyl for months and did fine but the patches never stook so I asked to switch. Doc put me on Opana ER twice/day then doubled to 40 mg twice with Perocet 10 every 6-8 hrs for breakthrough pain. He then lowered the Oxy to just three times a day. Haven't seen but realized they rescheduled my appt and I'd be out on Friday (tomorrow) and I don't see until Mon. I asked if I could get enough to hold me over and thru said after like four calls and no reply to just stretch it. I'm freaking out bc I have 6 Oxy left, I took more than three a day (told them wasn't working) and have cut the two 40s I had (I took a couple extra at the start of the month before I filled my Oxy) into pieces. I've been stretchin...

What Is The Difference In Opana And Morphine
just wanted to know if there is a difference between the 2. I am perscribed morphine sulfate er 15 mg twice daily. My neck has been operated on a few times so i have severe pain daily. I forgot my pills at home over the weekend. My mother is perscribed Opana 10mg. She gave me one and it seemed to work better. Wanted to know if there is a difference between the 2. I am not sure how to go about asking my dr to switch me. Don't want her to freak about my mom giving me one of hers... ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and it is actually stronger than Morphine. So, the one 10mg tablet that you took was actually equal to taking 30mgs of the Morphine, at once. They are both narcotics, so the side effect profile is similar and can include: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and ...

White Round Pill With Capital E in a circle on one side and the number 5 on the other
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...

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg
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...

10mg Opana er vs 20mg opana er
i have been on 10mg Opana Er twice a day for about 2 months. then my dr upped it to 2 10mg opana twice a day. i did fine on both. now i take 1 20mg Opana er and im itching! is there a chemical difference between 2 10mg and 1 20mg? has anyone else had this happen? please help!! ## Hello, LoralP! How are you? I'm sorry, but I'm a bit confused by the way you worded your post. Were you ever taking more than 20mgs a day? You said your doctor upped it to 2 10mg twice a day, which would be 40mgs and, if that is the case, and you were then taken down to just 20mg once a day, the itching could be due to some withdrawals. ## No, I've never had any, but I've read a lot of people have experienced it for Months.!
