Oxymorphone 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 ...

Oxymorphone 15mg vs. oxymorphone 15mg er

What is the difference in between the oxymorphone with the half moon and the oxymorphone with g67or g76 on them ## Hello, Herman! How are you? I understand that this can be confusing, especially if your pharmacy doesn't inform you, so I'll gladly clear this up for you. There is no difference, other than they have been manufactured by different companies. Since this is a generic medication, which one your pharmacy has in stock can vary, depending on which company was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. It's how they help keep prices down for uninsured customers. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Are the moons er or ir ## The "moons" are the Actavis brand of the 15mg Oxymorphone ER and the G## are the Global brand o...

Just found a pill that's blue oval pill 10 on one side 93 other

I found on floor trying to identify! It's has 93 on one side and 10 on the other ! ## Hi Lissa, Based on your description, I'm finding a blue oval pill with 93 on one side and "O1" on the other (which looks like it can easily be mistaken for the number 10, depending on which way you hold it). This particular tablet is identified as a 5mg Oxymorphone hydrochloride pill, used for treating moderate to severe pain. For additional verification, the manufacturer is reported to be Teva Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 00093-5861. I hope this helps!

There is some crazy mfgr shortage. Doc wont raise me up to 40s. Been on these things for a few years. Im really starting to get ticked off now. All pharmacys were out last month. And now still out. WTF? ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem getting your medication. Yes, there is a shortage and it is normal for this time of year, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their allotted limit for the year, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Every year, demand inevitably exceeds supply and we end up with shortages for the last few months of the year. 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 mo...

I am on oxymorphone er 15mg 3x a day, along with 30mg oxycodone break through 4x a day.....I live in nashville, I have no insurance, but with anyone with my problem with finding a pharmacy who carries the 15mg "moons" and not expensive. I got the place for u, I was paying $412 for 90 oxymorphone 15mg and $125 for 120 30mg oxycodone. I now pay $177 for 90 15mg oxymorphone and $55 for 120 30mg oxycodone and like I said, I have no insurance. And they carry the moons. But what I do to keep from WD is, I insufflate half a moon in the morning and it last me bout 5 hours, then I'll insufflate a 30mg roxi or take about 2 orally, then around 5pm I'll insufflate the other half of the moon and that keeps me going, every now and then, I'll take more, but I dont take as directed,...

Macomb county Michigan, Does anyone know of where I can get my oxymorphone filled at? I can't find a pharmacy that carries it. Desperately needed for my pain or I'm gonna end up back in the hospital. ## Hello, Aimee! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, we are now into the time of year when shortages of controlled substances usually occur due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted amount, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. It usually results in a shortage for the last few months of the year, because demand inevitably exceeds supply. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, di...

Does anyone know if there is a shortage of the generic opanas? My pharmacy said they can't get the moons or the g from two different suppliers. I am in the Knoxville area. ## Hello, Cowboy!

I was trying to find out the size of the G74 opana. Someone told me they can get the 6mm and 8mm G74 opana but I didn't think they would come in different sizes. Can anyone tell me the correct size? Thanks ## Hello, Kmtjet! How are you? I don't have the size specifications on them, but I can tell you that they are all the same size. There aren't two different sizes of Oxymorphone with that marking. It should be a round, orange tablet. 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. There is another tablet with a G74 marking on it that is local, but it is a Verapamil tablet, which is a medication used to treat high blood pressure. Its side effects may inclu...

Looking for my script in Nashville
11 Replies RSS
I have my script of 15mg er oxymorphone count 120. Does any know where to get these filled.. No pharmacist around me seem to have them. ## People have been having trouble finding them all over the U.S. right now. There has been no official word on why, but there are 2 possibilities that may explain it. The first is that some rumors have been circulating that it is due to new and stricter changes in the regulations regarding how much a pharmacy can keep on hand at any given time, which is making them be more choose of whose prescriptions they fill. As I said, however, this is just a rumor. The second possibility is one that I have witnessed before and usually crops up every year around this time, it is due to a shortage that has been caused by the mandatory manufacturing limits. To expla...

new oxymorphone er 40mg

I was on opana 40ers switched to generic, new pills have half moon on one side and 230 on the other, tan is this pill same as other , two hours after taking need breakthrough meds. ## Hello, Chad! How are you? Yes, they contain the same medication in a 40mg extended release formulation. There can sometimes be slight fluctuations from one generic to another, but they are very slight and it usually only takes a week or so for your body to adjust. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Oxymorphone and hydromorphone
Post a Reply
I have posted before about these meds which are the most effective rescue meds available (though not here in the UK) from my OxyContin, which only lasts a maximum of six hours and not the 12 as stated on the box, so need up to three rescue dosages of a suitable 4-hour action analgesic daily. First, can anybody tell me if the much cheaper TEVA US generic oxymorphone is up to the quality standard of the excellent Endo IR OPANA 10mg (and occasionally I need 5mg tablets as well)? What is the best value for money brand of hydromorphone IR high dosage (4mg and 8mg)? I know that the original Abbott/Purdue DILAUDID is by far best, but I hear good things about Ethex and Mallinckrodt's generics. Mallinckrodt also tend to be a lot cheaper than most generic opioids. Finally, how on earth can I ...
