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
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...

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
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...

opana vs morphine
I just started Opana 30mg twice a day and I didn't think it was working either, but 4 days into in, my pain has decreased from an 8 to a 2-3. You have to be patient and allow several days for it to reach a steady level in your system. Be patient...it will work. I have taken less breakthrough meds over the past several days than over the past 10 years. All I need now is 1-2 per day. If you are really looking for pain relief I would highly recommend the opana, and I have tried all but the fentanyl patches. If your looking for a high, don't bother....but they do make me a little sleepy but I will take that over pain anyday!

My doctor has me on opana er and with insurance it is still very expensive! I just can't afford it! Do you have any coupons or discounts that could help? ## Hello, Mimi! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. Medications can be quite expensive. There is an assistance program available for Opana ER, you can contact them for more information by calling 866-824-4747 to see if you qualify. This is 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?

pain clinics that treat out of state patients
Does anyone know of pain clinics that take out of state patients? Also looking to get put on opanas, or something like that. Been on loratab 1000's for 15 years and they don't do the job anymore. I realy hope someone out there knows someplace in GA or TN. Hope to hear from you soon and thanks. ## First off, there are no Lortab tablets that contain 1,000mgs of anything. And next is a question, why aren't you looking in your home state? Even if you do find a doctor that will treat you, when you're from out of state, most pharmacies will not fill your prescription under such circumstances. ## I am looking for a pain management dr in the Saginaw area who takes out of state claims from New Jersey, I' m thinking about relocating from Delaware. I got hurt in 93 and have bn ...

I Am Curious If Anybody Has Been On The Generic Opana Long Enough To Give It A Review Either Positive Or Negative Currently 60mg Of Opanaer Tw
Has anyone been on the generic OpanaER that is being made by Global/Impax Pharmaceuticals long enough to give an honest opinion as to how much more effective they are then Opana? My pharmacist just ordered the oxymorphoneER's for me today. I haven't gotten any relief from Opana. I take 60mg of the ER's twice a day with 3, 10mg. oxymorphone pills for breakthrough pain. I'm getting more relief from the 10mg generics then I am with the 60mgER's. Will I be able to just take the 40mgER's without the added 20mgER's? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!! ## Hi Bleegs, Based on my research, The Opana ER is an extended release; which means that the medication is being distributed in the body for up to 24 hrs. That is supposed to...

opana vs oxy
hello... I recently was rx'd oyxcontin 30mg, 2 x day and I am thinking of switching to opana. first, is opana available as a generic?? second, does it " feel " the same as oxy's?? the oxy's cost me about $ 150.00!! WITH insurance...just looking for something similar without the high cost.. thanks for any and all input.. ## Hi House, I'm only going off my own research here, so I'd like to leave some of the more specific details for those to contribute who've already had personal experience between the two medications. However from what I've read on several threads concerning how it feels in comparison to Oxycodone, information I'm finding reportedly states that it has a less euphoric feeling than Oxycodone. It also is thought to be similar to a str...

white round 54 814 is it an Opana 10 mg
I found a white round pill with markings 54 814. My friend said it was an Opana 10 mg. Is it? ## I have checked all of our resources for a tablet with this marking or a similar one and I am not finding anything in the U.S. prescription drug databases. I know the marking 54 followed by three numbers is used on prescription medications, but it might not be something that is available in the U.S. What country are you in? ## yes its opana 10mg US ## they are much less effective than the brand name and I am very disappointed. Within 18 hours of starting on these new generics, my pain was back in full force. I had filled a 90 day supply and will be in awful pain until I refell for the brand. NEVER again will I take this generic. I thought they were supposed to be the same thing. I am sure it ...

dr robert c osborne
My pharmacy (Safeway) will no longer accept Dr. Osborne's Schedule 2 med scripts. Does anyone know here in Tucson of one that will. I get 180 30 mg Oxy and also 20 mg Opana's. Have several auto immune disorders in severe pain. Thanks for the help ## You can no longer get anything filled by dr Osborne his medical license has been revoked ## Anyone know of another good doctor for pain management? ## I recommend Canyon Healthcare. They are accepting new patients, and have had quite a few of Osbournes patients. Call and ask for Tony for an appointment. The fee for office visits are the cheapest in town. ## I agree, Canyon Health on Speedway and Craycroft took my in and treated me real good! ## Did you go to canyon heath ? How did it work out I get 180 too will they prescribe that many

ABUSE DETERRENT FEATURES IN OPANA ER 40
i would like more information on the ADF TIMERX in the opana er 40 A.D.F. abuse deterrent features and the side effects of the gell and silicone.that are in this opana er 40. ## Hi Jeffrey, From what I could gather, this formulation of Opana ER 40mg made by Endo Pharma is said to use what's called Grünenthal Group’s INTAC Technology - "which reportedly preserves the extended release characteristics of the medication while at the same time, imparting crush-resistant properties." Ref: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3411218 However, upon approval, the FDA also verified that the addition of this INTAC Technology does not significantly impact the rate of absorption from the actual active ingredient. Though you can find more specific details pertaining to the abuse-de...
