Opana Overview

Oxymorphone (brand names Opana, Numorphan, Numorphone), also known as 14-hydroxydihydromorphinone, is a powerful semi-synthetic opioid analgesic (painkiller) 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.[2] The brand name Numorphan is derived by analogy to the Nucodan name for an oxycodone product (or vice versa) as well as Paramorphan/Paramorfan...

opana er how long does it take to work
1 Reply RSS
I have severe RA, hip and femur full of bullet fragments and severe muscle loss. I have been taking 3 x's a day mscontin 30mg. Dr put me on 30mg of Opana 2 x's daily. I took first 2hours and not helping yet with my pain. How long does it take to kick in fully? Thank you ## The ER designates it as being a time released medication, so it doesn't all take effect, at once, it is slowly released over a period of time, but you should start to feel some relief within a few minutes of taking it. Has there been any change? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

Oxymorphone Hydrocloride 10mg er pharmacy that fill these

I live in the boro.... close to Nashville also. I have searched everywhere it seems, and was hoping someone could put me on the right path to a pharmacy that has them in the area.... Thank you ## Rite aid in old hickory might be worth a shot. Unfortunately, pharmacies can not tell you over the phone if they have that medication. I know a lot of people who waste a lot of time and gas trying to fill opana scripts. ## pardue on charolette pike nashville ## Maybe try Publix. they are great. ## To get opana in mboro you have to live there and prove you do and then you can go to mills pharmacy on s church street or reeves-sain mermorial blvd is the best one ## There is also a hotline you can call to ask where you can get this med .it's been small mom and pop stores who have it ... new law...

Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg
102 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?
20 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...

What Is The Difference In Opana And Morphine
26 Replies RSS
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 ...

moving to kansas city mo last minute need help
2 Replies RSS
Hello everyone, So I've been doing the pain management thing the correct way for about 15 years. I take Opana ER and Oxycodone IR every day. I've finally found the right dosage of each to be able to at least cope with my Ankylosing Spondylitis as well as the 3 different columns I've had fused. Well lucky me I found out yesterday I'm being transferred to KC MO next week! My current doc didn't know anyone there to refer me to, so I'm asking for everyone here's assistance. At this point I'm not too terribly picky. Yeah I would prefer a place that didn't treat me like I'm some sort of junky just because I know exactly what works for me. However I do understand that that's going to happen wherever I go for the most part. Any help is greatly appreci...

pain clinics that treat out of state patients
34 Replies RSS
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 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/Oxymorphone Pharmacology
1 Reply RSS
I would like to know why Opana ER is so powerful? It comes in 10, 20, 30, & 40 mgs. I took this medication once and it made OxyContin feel far inferior as an all around mood enhancer and pain reliever. What is the difference in the pharmacology from OxyContin to Oxymorphone? ## It is just a different medication that is stronger than Oxycodone. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Years ago, I remember Oxycontin being the most powerful one available. Is there anything else I can help with?
