opana vs oxycontin 80 mg
1 Reply RSS
been on oxycontin for 4 years and is not working as well since they switched formula ## There have been many complaints about this. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and it is actually stronger than Oxycodone, requiring just half the dose. So, if you were taking 80mgs of Oxycontin, you would need just 40mgs of Opana. Since it is a narcotic, the side effect profile is basically the same: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.

opana 40mg vs oxycontin op 80mg
355 Replies RSS
my Dr prescribed Opana 40mg as alternative to Oxy 80 mg 2 twice a day which I would insufflate - I didn't tell him this of course. he claimed them to be just as good if not stronger can any one share about opana 40mg ## Inhaling medications that are not intended for that method of usage is very dangerous. You run the risk of overdose and creating blockages in your lungs, which can lead to breathing problems, embolisms and stroke. Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, this is a potent narcotic pain reliever. Side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. THis dosage is about the same as what you were taking of the Oxycontin. Do you have any other questions? ## i was taking three oc 40's a day, when the new op 40's came out they seemed to... ...

opana reformulated
2 Replies RSS
Do the new ones have same effects? ## In theory they should, but just like when Oxycontin was reformulated, there have been people who have complained and said they do not work as well as they used to. The only thing you can really do is try them and see how well they work for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank You for your honesty and I hope they work because 1400.00 is alot of money to put out on something that doesnt work but every1 is different and I would ask doctor to write a 1 week script and see but he is on vacation and has already has by scripts wrote and for me to come and sign for them this month so I am stuck, but Thank You and if you hear of somehing else that is as good as the opana 40mg then please let me know because I was on the oxycotin 80 mg and didnt... ...

Are the 40 mg Opana ER's made to be abuse proof like the oxycontin 80mg ER's?
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.

what s stronger than opana
3 Replies RSS
I do not know why anyone hasn't mentoned methadone ? Opana. Diaudid are both IR drugs. The pain relief never lasts long and tolerance develops quickly. Methadone is an instant release medication whose long half life cannot be beat. There is a new law or regulation that if your pain management Doctor has you on methadone that an EKG has to be done each year. Evidently methadone can contribute to heart arythmias but lower dose's ( under 80mg ) seem to be fine. 80 mg of methadone will keep almost anyone pain free ( and possibly asleep) and the duration is 24 hours. I was on methadone maintenance for years but not for chronic pain I am an addict but now in recovery from all drugs and etoh but methadone is a great pain medication for chronic pain sufferers but has a bad reputation be... ...

I was wondering I had a pill I know it was morhine. it was an oblong blue shape and color. It has been awhile I'm a chronic pain patient and I cannot take the newoxy op's I took 80mg 3x a day for along time. If any body knows the difference between just the regular morphine and the er opana ect. let me know the ms-contin did not work at all. Also the hydromorphone what is the differences in those meds? I know that is alot of info I just need to knoww. So if you know any of it let me know. THANKS ## If the Morphine ER didn't work for you, then it makes sense that the MS Contin also didn't, because they are both time released Morphine tablets.

conversion from 60mg methadone to 60 mg ms contin
2 Replies RSS
I am having trouble with the switch,not sleeping,eating,feel anxious,like I have taken 8000mg caffeine. It does help the pain but the side effects are so unpleasant. I had the same reaction with demerol, opana, & fentanyl. Does anyone have experience or suggestions. I have 5 degenerated discs from breaking my back 40 yrs, ago. ## You're going from taking Methadone to trying something different? If so, then that's probably why right there. Methadone is very well known to be highly addictive and to cause severe withdrawal symptoms. The only thing that's going to help improve that is time, as your body slowly adjusts to no longer taking it. Learn more MS Contin details here. That is actually why most people that take it for addiction treatment end up requiring a lifetime ma... ...

Yellow octagon pill with 40 on one side

It is opana 40 mg, its very strong its probably equivalent to 2 oxy 80's. So if you get ahold of one of these DO NOT ABUSE THEM and do not do more than half at once unless you tolerence is extemely high. ## That is correct, it is a 40mg Opana tablet, which contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, a very potent narcotic analgesic. Abusing them is dangerous is many ways, it can cause overdose and possibly be fatal.

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... ...

You may have to consider looking at online pharmacies as a last resort if this doesn't work out. I would then recommend checking with sites such as PharmacyChecker, as they only list certified (reputable) online pharmacies. Alt... ...

What Is The Equivilant Of 80 Oxycontin And Opana
1 Reply RSS
I have been on oxycontin 80 mg. they made me really sick and did not help my pain. What is the equivalent of oxy. 80 mg and opana? ## Information that I've gathered on this topic from various references states the following: "All opioids have different effects. There is no such thing as "equivalent" dosages. Body chemistry is very different in everyone, so an "equivalent" dosage for one person could cause another to OD" Just to further reiterate this - according to opiate equivalency tables, 40mg of Oxymorphone (opana) injected roughly equals 800mg of Oxycodone." (This is not a typo). What I highly recommend, is to discuss your situation with a qualified doctor instead of asking someone else what an equivalent dose would be, since it can vary on a case by... ...

oxycodone vs. oxycontin ## Oxycontin is a brand name of Oxycodone. Essentially the same medication. Hope that helps. Please post back with any other questions or details which you can think of. ## Oxycodone ER is generic oxycontin and both have a time release shell regular oxycodone is fast release and come in a max mg dose of 30mg ## I have been in pain MGM. For 13 yr. There are several chronic conditions that have no cure. My pain was controlled very well when I was taking 80mg OxyContin Q8hr. And oxycodone 30mg.Q4hr for break thru pain.However, when they changed the formula on the OxyContin, my system could never actually break down the pill so it was useless to me. My doctor then put me on opana ER and it worked quite well. They have now changed that formula as well. Could there pos... ...

Yes, it is an equal dose. However, it is seriously dangerous to snort these tablets, they are not intended for such use and some of the fillers, especially since these are time released, can cause blockages in your lungs, leading to pulmonary embolism, blood clots or stroke.
