groggy morphine
1 Reply RSS
I am on 40mg of Opana and 15 mg ir morphine for 3 ruptured discs. . When I take the morphine it makes me tired. Is there an IR that will not make me groggy? ## Hello, Steven! How are you? Drowsiness is a possible side effect of all narcotics, it's really just a matter of trial an error to find one that works for you, without making you sleepy. Morphine did the same thing to me, when I was on it, I could barely ever stay awake. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. Have you tried Oxycodone? It may work better for you. ...

Oxycontin Vs Morphine
2 Replies RSS
I was taking 4 80 mg oxys daily my doc put me on 2 100 mg teva morphines will it help the same and will i go through withdraw thank you ## There may be some issues here, because the Oxycodone is actually 1 and a half time stronger than the Morphine, so you'd need 120mgs of Morphine to equal each 80mg dose you were taking of the Oxycodone. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Learn more Morphine details here. Why did he change your medication? ## Pain Meds 101: For chronic pain management...the best result is almost always a long acting med (OxyCONTIN (currently no generic so $$$), Morphine Sulfate E/R extended release, Opana (not my particular fave), Fentanyl Patches and Exalgo). Only the latter are taken 1x per day..the others are SUPPOSED to be 12 hr meds to be taken 2x a day but mo... ...

MScontin vs. Opana which is best?
4 Replies RSS
I need to switch to one of these meds, Opana isn't covered on my insurance, the MS is, are they the same or is one better than the other? ## No, they do not contain the same medication, MS Contin contains the active ingredient Morphine and Opana contains Oxymorphone. The Opana is a much stronger medication, for instance, just 6.67mgs of it is equal to a 40mg dosage of the Ms Contin, so you have to take much less of it. However, since there is no generic, it is also much more expensive and since you can get a dosage in the Morphine that may help, you may find it makes more sense to go with the one that your insurance will cover, even though the dosage will have to be higher. Are there any questions or comments? ## I have been taking MS Contin 30 mg 3 time daily and have been cut to 3... ...

Opana - Is it really Non-Addictive?
17 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.

7 Replies RSS
Are the opana 40 mg ER's made to be abuse proof like the oxycontin 80mg er's? what other long acting pain meds are on the market that would compare to the oxycontin 80 mg er's? ## No, Opana is not made with the same formulation that the Oxycontin is, that was something specifically developed by Purdue Pharma, because the abuse of the Oxycontin and diversion has become such a huge and widespread problem. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, which is also a very potent narcotic and may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

does opana feel like oxycontin
1 Reply RSS
I am in pain management and I currently take oxy 30mg 3x's a day... my doctor is willing to switch me to something else if I want, since the oxys do not provide enough relief. when I asked her what kind of dose I would start at the only thing she would match mg for mg would be morphine..opana she will only start me at 20mg 2 per day. does anyone know if this would be equal to the oxy I take now?? I have read all about how opana is supposed to be about twice as strong as oxy but still I was afraid to switch.. also, does opana " feel " the same as oxy??? thanks to all for reading and replying, HOUSE ## Hello, House! How are you? Morphine is actually weaker than Oxycodone, so matching mg for mg likely won't work. If you were taking 30mgs of Oxycontin, you'd need 45mgs o... ...

1 Reply RSS
can you receive oxycodone oxycontin morphine xanax opana after getting prescription for suboxonei wana know cuz I want my pain killers back! ## It's definitely going to be at the discretion of your doctor; whether or not he feels that Suboxone is the appropriate drug of choice for you. From my perspective, the only reason he would prescribe Suboxone in the first place, is to help get you off of those other strong pain killers. A different doctor who doesn't know your medical history or have your records on file, would be more likely to prescribe you something else, if that's what you're looking for. At the same time, I also believe that your current doctor should give you what you ask for, because you're essentially paying him for advice and for the scripts. Have you... ...

Opana is terrible both IR and ER, same with Exalgo and even the 8 mg Dilaudid stinks soo folks those of us that truly need pain relief are now screwed. ## I am very sorry to read that you are having a problem. The Exalgo and the Dialudid both contain the same active ingredient, the narcotic Hydromorphine, so if one didn't work for you, then it makes sense that the other wouldn't, either. Opana contains Oxymorphone and from the title of your post, are you saying that the new Oxycontin doesn't work, either? If that is the case, what other options have you discussed with your doctor? On possibility is Morphine, it is available in 3 formulation, instant release, time release and regular release: There is also a time released patch on the market that contains the active ingredien... ...

Should this medication be prescribed to an adult who is taking Daizepam, Morphine Sul, Opana, Savella and amphetamine tab 20 mg? I don't see any indication for usage by adults. I was told it is to keep the person awake during the day so he can function. ## Adderall can be used by adults, however, it contains mixed amphetamine salts and you listed a 20mg Amphetamine tablet, so it would really be doubling up on the same thing. And yes, it can be used to treat daytime sleepiness, as well as ADHD and narcolepsy. As to the other medications, I am not finding any contraindications listed, but you should check with the doctor or pharmacist to be certain. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

why different milligrams of different meds

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... ...

I'm on Opana IR 10mg but have been throwing them up bc I've been sick & have issues swallowing. The doctor knows this but still... Anyway, I just wanted to ask, if I take oxycodone and still have opana to take before my appt, and she does a urine dip in office, what does it show as? Or would it show as the same - opiates? I've seen several posts saying that oxycodone will show as oxymorphone but oxymorphone won't show as oxycodone. Is that possible?! I have scripts for oxy, opana & even Vicodin, so I can cover myself if need be. And I'm sure she will understand why I had to take the other med. I just want to know what to expect. And oxymorphone is not oxycodone & morphine right? I've been itching a lot since starting opana and I've been wondering ... ...

I have a script for opana and oxycodone. My doctor uses a really expensive lab to send the tests too and they take at least a week... So i know they are intense. If i took an Op 80 (oxycontin) how likely is it that my doc would catch it? ## Oxycontin is Oxycodone. On a urine drug screen, Oxycontin will show up as Oxycodone. Also, Opana's are Oxymorphone, which is Oxycodone and Morphine so the Opana's will also show up as Oxycodone and Morphine. I am not a Dr or a nurse yet but I am in nursing school so I know that if you took an Oxycontin OP 80mg, it will only show up as Oxycodone which you are prescribed. I hope this information was helpful. ## I am prescribed Roxicodone 30mg qid I had an old rx for op80 I took 2 of them I am a CCRN and I am aware that op 80 have hydromorhoone ... ...

I am highly allergic to codeine and morphine.

I'm on opana which is oxymorphone but they said it doesn't show as morphine. I'm really upset about this as I go into anaphalaxis if I take any lortab or morphine but I'm ok on opana as its a derivitive of morphine but not the same family. What meds could show positive as this for someone who hasn't taken either and is highly allergic? ...
