Oxycontin Vs Morphine
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?
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?
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 ... ...

opana er 20mg ter
Contrast ms contin 100mg with opana er 20mg ter ## Well MS Contin contains the active ingredient Morphine. Opana ER contains Oxymorphone. The Oxymorphine is much more powerful and only requires a fraction of the dose that was being taken of the Morphine. Both are time released. They also share the same side effect profiles: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.

Are the 40 mg Opana ER's made to be abuse proof like the oxycontin 80mg ER's?
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. Learn more: As to other time released options, there is also a time released formulation of Morphine, the name brand for it is MS Contin, though it is also available as a generic: There is also a patch that co... ...

does opana feel like oxycontin
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... ...

Can you get a script for oxy n morphine after I got a script for suboxne? Let me kno I want my painkillers
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... ...

Op Vs Oc
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... ...

Ateral Medication
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? ...

a friend gave me a peach color pill thats shaped like a stop sign with an imprint of a 5 on it. he claims its morphine. what is it?woos ## This is actually a 5mg Opana ER tablet, which contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone. So it is a narcotic, but not actually the same as Morphine. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Read more: ...

I Have Liver Problems And Im Taking Want To Take Something With Out Acetaminophen
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? ...

green op 80
i really would likr to know what this pill is...almost identical to OC 80....but it says OP instead..cant get coating off and it kinda melts in your mouth, just like an M 80 would...is the OP just another generic brand?? cant find it anywhere! ## This is a new version of Oxycontin, manufactured to help prevent abuse, it is called Oxycontin OP. These new pills still indicate the dosage, in this case 80mgs, however, even if you try to abuse them by crushing, they will not release the dosage all at once, instead they retain their time release nature. Side effects remain the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## There are also pills looking similar to oxys that say op.

im taking oxycodone and opana - does oxycontin show the same?
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 ... ...

what will show up as codeine/morphine in a drug test
I am highly allergic to codeine and morphine. My pm dr did a urine drug test on me and sent to a lab and it came back positive for both however, I have not taken codeine or any form of it or 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? ...

will opana show up as morphine on a urine drug test
I want to know if morphine shows up as the same thing as opana on a urine drug test ## What's Opana Bro? ## It depends on what type of a urine test you will have to take. If it is a GC/MS lab test it is doubtful morphine would show up as Opana which is oxymorphone. IF it is a urine dip test like you buy at the store Opana might show up on a morphine test if the levels of opana are very very high. ## I don't think it has anything to do with the test. Morphine shows up as opiates. Opana is oxymorphone and I don't know if it shows up opiates like hydromorphone does or if it requires a separate test like oxycodone does. I think they might show up the same though. The question is does the opana require a separate test. ## From personal experience opanas(was taking the yellow 40s)... ...

Will Opana And Ms Contin Show Up As Morphine On Drug Test
WILL OPANA AND MS CONTIN SHOW UP AS MORPHINE ON A DRUG TEST? OPANA SHOWED UP AS MORPHINE LAST TIME SO WILL THE MS CONTIN SHOW UP AS MORPHINE ALSO ## MSContin IS Morphine... the brand name... sooooo yep ## SO YOU THINK OPANA WHICH IS HYDROMORPHONE WILL SHOW UP THE SAME AS MS CONTIN? THE DRUG STORE SAID OPANA WILL SHOW UP AS MORPHINE TO. I HOPE IT'S THE SAME. THANKS ## Opana actually contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and, on a precise test, it should be detected as a different substance than Morphine. There are tests that can show exactly what you have taken, so it really depends on the test. Are there any other questions or comments? ## This is what an actual drug screen looks for and their cuttoff levels best advice is if your not prescribed something dont take it. (NOTE) F... ...

will morhine show as Test as OPANA
I took morphine will it show as opana! ## No, Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, which has a different chemical structure, so both it and its metabolites would be different from those of Morphine, in the body. Even though they are both narcotics and in the same family, the tests should show them as different substances. Are there any other questions? ## Il take morphine 2x's a day if I took an opana 20mg will it show on my drug screen wed today is Sunday ## if u take morphine and percocets will fentanyl opana show up as something different in my pee test ## what's the shortest time it takes xanaxs to leave ur system f u drink nothin but water for 2 2/2 days will it still show up? ## k how long I got guess B complex and water my best bet. ## Okay, let me see if I c... ...

Could Opana And Roxiecodone Show Up As Morphine In A Drug Test
I take opana and roxiecodone could it in anyway show up as morphine since it's a mixture? also isn't oxymorphone morphine? Thanks ## The Oxymorphone in the Opana and Oxycodone in the Roxicodone are both synthetic opiates and these have been known to occasionally cause false positives for other synthetic opiates. Morphine, however, is not synthetic, so that's not one they've been reported to cause a false positive for. The Oxymorphone is distantly related to Morphine, but it is not the same substance and, therefore, the metabolites that it creates in the body, which would be detectable on a drug test, are different. Are there any other questions? ## Oxycodone has to be tested for separately from opiates. Oxycodone will not cause you to fail for opiates. Dilaudid and Hydro... ...
