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 Thanks for the help ## You can no longer get anything filled by dr Osborne his medical license has been revoked ## Anyone know of another good doctor for pain management?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.

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...

oxymorphone HCl tablet
I've been going through pain management for quite a while and I was on percocets morphine pills methadone treatment and recently dilaudid now I have been prescribed 5mg oxymorphone HCl tablets, Is this stronger than the dilaudid, hydromorphone 4 milligram tablet that I was prescribed before ## Very slightly, but not much stronger. 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. How are they working for you? That is actually the more important question. Are they alleviating your pain?

ER 20mg Opana
May of the year, I started the Opana ER 20mg and for me this has been wonderful. I was only able to afford oxycodone prior to the start of insurance in May. Been fighting a crazy battle with the oxycodone pain relief, cause the pharmacy keeps pushing KVK Tech product that doesn't work for me and has side effects. With Opana ER 20mg as my primary pain relief and Oxycodone 10mg for breakthrough pain, I am finally adjusting where I can function, which It has been a long time. Several years ago when I first started with oxycodone 30mg, life was good because I could function and then my local pharmacies started slipping the KVK products in on me and life became awful. Have heard that some people find the Opana makes them very sleepy. Lucky but so far I haven't had a problem. ## Hi Su...
