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 ...

Please HELP me. Doctor has changed my medication
2 Replies RSS
This last time my doctor changed my pain meds from Opana 10mg every 8 hr. and oxycontin 20mg twice a day TO Opana ER 15mg every 12 hours and Dilaudid 4mg every six hours I was crying and pretty hopeless with diabetic neuropathy in legs and arms, severe trigger fingers, hip pain, and my knees about to blow off with pain. I also have fibromyalgia. This doctor says that they will get in trouble if they change any of my meds. I said I'd rather just not be here living if I have to suffer like this. Hubby has dropped my bed from an extremely high bed to being on the floor (which has helped my hips). I dip my hands in scalding hot wax just to divert from the trigger finger pain. I use tubes of Bengay every two months. I no longer fix my hair b/c the tendon in my right shoulder is shredded ...

Generic Opana-People Speak up
91 Replies RSS
They are saying that the new opana works as well as the old. There are so many peoples statements that I have read saying the new don't work as well but yet Endo states their research don't prove that. All people who have a real medical problem that causes pain and takes new opana and it doesn' work as well as the old needs to speak up. One person can't change anything. People who are being treated awful by medical doctors and pain clinics because they have pain also need to speak up. ## Read what Endo states what they think will happen with Opana in 2013-14. *double-digit prescription growth in products like Voltaren Gel and the reformulated OPANA ER which will drive growth in our branded pharmaceutical businesses.

white round 54 814 is it an Opana 10 mg
32 Replies RSS
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 ...

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
378 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...

Opana and Sun
1 Reply RSS
I'm having a problem of turning bright red when I am out in the sun for just a short while.(NOT sunburn) Does Opana cause a reaction to the sun? ## It has been known to cause the redness, as a side effect according to the FDA reports, and being out in the sun likely exacerbates it, which can happen with many medications. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg
87 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...

is opana a mixture of morphine and oxycodone?
15 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...

Generic Opana ER
76 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...

oxycotton verses opana how to kick the habit all together
5 Replies RSS
A friend said they want to get cured of oxy cotton They are taking 2 to 4 pills a day of 40 milligram opana my question is what should they be taking if they want to kick the habit ## Well, Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, which is also a very potent narcotic, so by using it, they are really just switching one for the other. Depending on the severity of their addiction, they should probably consult a doctor and they may want to look into treatment with Suboxone, it contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, coupled with Naloxone to prevent the use of other narcotics, while under treatment with it. You can learn more here: Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Subbies and methadone don't help addicts at all. Trust me. They combine it with other drugs to get higher. I...

how long do 5mg opana er last
3 Replies RSS
My dr. said it lasts 8 hours but it only lasts me about 4 hours, he doesn't believe me. ## Hello, Nagin! How are you? The medication is intended to be slowly released over the given time period, but it may be that it's not the right dosage or medication to alleviate your pain. We are all different and what works for one person may not work for another. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Are you on any other medications? ## Yes I'm on cyclobenzapreen trazadone lyrica Cymbalta . ## Lyrica trazadone cyclobenzapreen cymbalta
