Opana - Is it really Non-Addictive?
19 Replies RSS
If Opana was designed to be non-addictive, how did my granddaughter become addicted to it; or did she? She is now in jail and says this is the drug she has been taking and paying $40.00 a pill for. ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and I'm not aware of anything stating it was designed to be non-addictive, the possibility of being habit forming and abused is actually prominently warned about it the drug information monographs about it. It is an opiate narcotic, therefore, it carries the same addictive risk as all the others do, such as Oxycodone and Morphine. More details: Are there any other questions? ## OPANA IS ADDICTIVE IT IS HYDROMORPHONE. IT HAS THE SAME THING IN IT AS DILAUDID IT'S NOT EXCATLY THE SAME BUT CLOSE THEY BOTH HAVE HYDROMORPHONE IN THEM CALL ... ...

I HAVE HEP C AND AND IM TAKING 7.5 WATSONS AND NEED TO TAKE SOMTHING WITH SAME OR BETTER AS HELP ## Hello, Boston! How are you? There are quite a few available without Acetaminophen in them. You can get Oxycodone by itself, as well as Opana and Morphine, just to name a couple, so you may want to ask about them. 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? ...

I just got switched from 5mg percocet to 15mg Morphine sa tabs. I weigh about 140lbs, and i'm 5'9'' i suffer from 2 failed surgeries and have a pending fusion, and I ust wanna know if its safe for some one my size to go to such a high dose? ## How many tablets of th 5 mg were you taking and the same with the morphine, how many tablets a day are you taking with those? ## It really doesn't have to do with your size, but rather your tolerance. The Oxycodone in Percocet is 1 and a half times stronger than Morphine, so your doctor would have to calculate the dosage of the Morphine that is equivalent to the Oxycodone dosage you were taking, plus probably adding some more, if it wasn't handling your pain. So, an equivalent dosage of Morphine would be 7.5mgs, then it loo... ...

is morphine stronger than oxycontin? or are they the same. ## This tablet contains 30mgs of Morphine ER, generic for MS Contin.

new drug prescribing laws

I have been seeing the same pain management doctor in Ohio for over 12 years for degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy and sciatica. She put me on 60mg MS Contin ER q 12 and 5-10 mg Oxycodone prn for break through pain. Now she tells me that I have to wean down to 60 mg Morphine Equivalent per day because of the new federal laws. I was able to enjoy an active lifestyle and now at 60 mg bid I am miserable and unable to do or enjoy anything. She is forcing me to go to a neuropathology doc for more injections, ablations and physical therapy which I have been through many times before without success. I worked in surgery for 36 years and refuse to go that route because most of the patients had multiple surgeries, each one making them worse. Is she being honest about these laws or jus... ...

Substitute For oxycontin 40mg daily
2 Replies RSS
I am facing major surgery in four weeks time and I am fearful that the same will happen as in a similar operation last year. Cold turkey during recovery and no one would listen. I want to die. If they give me more morphine. Would that work. ## Yes, it could work, but only if they give you an equivalent dosage. Oxycodone is stronger than Morphine, so you would require a higher amount of the Morphine to equal what you currently take. Thus, if you are on 40mgs of Oxycodone, to prevent withdrawals and handle your pain accordingly, you'd need 60mgs of the Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It helps a lot as I dreaded that the same experience might again. I will ask for a plan that must include the correct dosage of morphine e.g. 60mg. Are you speaking from personal expe... ...

There is a variety available, including Oxycodone, Morphine, Dilaudid, and Tramadol, so you can ask your doctor about trying other options.

I've been on oxycotin 80 mg.es, now because of Insurance reasons, Now I'am on Morphine Sulphate 100mg. es, How do they compare and what are the pros and cons? ## The Morphine is not as strong as the Oxycodone, hence the higher dosage being necessary. Otherwise, they are both effective narcotics and they pretty much share the same cons, like the side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. You can read more on the Morphine here: Really, the only pro I can think of is that the Morphine has a slightly lower incidence of causing dependence or addiction. Do you have any other question? ## the morphine is 1000% harder to come off just to warn u its alot more adddictive ...

can you mix dilaudid, morphine, and vicodine 10/325 in a pain management treatment ## A mix of analgesic medications is often used, when someone requires pain management. In many cases, a long acting medication, such as the time released formulations of Morphine or Oxycodone, is used along with something that works fast, like an immediate release or a regular release opiate, to give better pain control, until the one that will work for the longer period of time can start to work. However, it doesn't usually involve 3 different medications, but this can be necessary in some cases of severe, chronic pain that has not responded to other types of treatment or medications. Have they all been prescribed by the same doctor? ...

I am currently taking oxycontin 40 mg and I going from a private insurance plan to a Humana PPO Medicare advantage plan and they don't cover it. Some of the other option they recommend from humana was Methadone, Hydromorphone, Codeine Sulfate, Fentanyal Patch, Morphine, and oxycodone IR. I know Oxycodone is the same active ingredient oxycontin but I also take Oxycodone 15mg for breakthrough pain. It helps somewhat but it does help enough. My good day after taking the medicine and having my spinal cord stimulation implant device on is a 5 but an avg. day is 7.5.

I have been taking different meds trying to see what works with different milligrams. Please explain to me why oxycodone, morphine, dilaudid, and opana are different milligrams? Oxycodone 10, morphine 30, dilaudid 4, and opana 5; why? ## Hello, Denise! How are you? It's simply due to the fact that some medications are stronger than others. It is the same with some heart and blood pressure medications, a person may need a higher dose of one to achieve the same effect that another one did at a lower dose. The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic analgesics, which carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Just to give you an idea, Oxycodone is on a half time stronger than Morphine, so you... ...

10 mg Zohydro ER strength compared to 10 mg narco ?
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone taken 10 mg hydrocodone tabs 1to 3 tabs at once to help with your pain. I want to know what I can expect in the strength of 10 mg er once taken . Is it the same as 1 hydro or much stronger ? I have some breathing issues taking 10 mg OxyContin but not with 15 -30 mg. IR 30 mg oxycodone. ## The FDA considers oxy and hydro to be morphine equivalents, but some feel oxy is stronger. Zohydro is a 12hr er med. Depending on how often you were taking oxy, to replace a 10mg er dose your doc would probably start you at 15mg or 20mg Zo and adjust from there. A problem with taking three ir norco doses at once is that each dose usually has 325mg of acetaminophen. While many docs feel that up to three grams of acetaminophen a day not a problem, it serves to analgesic purpose for real pain a... ...
