Opana Er 15 Mg
My husband has severe rheumatoid arthritis and requires 24 pain management. We felt there were too many ups and downs with the 50 mcg fentanyl patch and asked for something new. Pain Management Dr. (PMD) changed him to MS Contin 15 mg. He was in bed for 4 solid days, was taking 4-6 percocet per day for breakthrough and was anorexic and irritable. He changed him to Opana ER 15. Can anyone explain how that might be more effective for him??? Thanks! ## Percocet is adding a lot of acetominiphine (sp?) That may end up hurting his stomach. My Dr. took me off Percocet and put me on oxycodone IR and Opana er. The Opana is 30mg. This works well for me. ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, which is a very potent narcotic. Learn more Opana details here. And it's really just a m... ...

opana ir 15
Does the Opana IR come in 15 mg tabs? ## Hi Lynn, From what I could gather, Opana "ER" tablets are the only ones that come in 15mg dosage forms. The immediate release ones appear to be in 5mg and 10mg increments, respectively. I don't know if other brands outside of the US carry it in different dosages, but it sounds like three 5mg tablets would be your best bet for reaching the intended dosage. I'd just be sure to talk with your doctor about proper dosing protocols before moving forward with it. I hope this helps! ...

conversion from opana er 15mg to ms cottin
My Dr has given me the option to switch from Opana ER 45mg to msCottin ER! How many MG of MSCottin ER will it take to equale the Opana ER 45mg?? ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? Opana is actually much stronger than Morphine, so you'd need 135mgs of the MS Contin to equal each 45mgs of the Opana. That's quite a lot to take. Is the Opana no longer working for you? 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. Oxycontin or Fentanyl might be better options. ## Thank you for the information. It's helped a lot! I am switching medications because of several different stomach problems I have. About 10 years ago I had gastric bypass surgery that went horribly wrong... ...

do opana 40mg pills ever expire
How long is opana 40 mg shelf life? ## Hi mike, According to the thread linked below, the shelf life of Opana is 3 years: /Discuss/Opana-ER-Shelf-Life-225768.htm However a Harvard Medical School family health article states that, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. But the question is whether or not the drug you have happens to be one of these drugs from the study... (I have not seen the list of drugs ... ...

I Want 20 Mg Opana Ir
i am on methadone 5mg twice a day for long term pain. i am on 10 mg oxycodone four times a day for breakthrough pain. i hate methadone, but its a long story having to do with a stint at a clinic. i couldnt tell my doctor that. i have been taking 10 mg opana ir and they work well, i just have built a tolerance to it. i think the 20 mg twice a day along with two 15mg oxycodone for breakthrough should do me well. i cant take the opana er because they make me sick, do you guys think that what i want is a good enough substitute? any comments and suggestions would be helpful. thanks ## Was on both meds- got off both. Use Lyrica, elavil, muscle relaxant, and topic capasain for chronic pain/RSD. Have spinal cord stimulate. My life is a million times better without methadone(killed my teeth/ I u... ...

What Is The Difference In Opana And Morphine
just wanted to know if there is a difference between the 2. I am perscribed morphine sulfate er 15 mg twice daily. My neck has been operated on a few times so i have severe pain daily. I forgot my pills at home over the weekend. My mother is perscribed Opana 10mg. She gave me one and it seemed to work better. Wanted to know if there is a difference between the 2. I am not sure how to go about asking my dr to switch me. Don't want her to freak about my mom giving me one of hers... ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and it is actually stronger than Morphine. So, the one 10mg tablet that you took was actually equal to taking 30mgs of the Morphine, at once. They are both narcotics, so the side effect profile is similar and can include: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and ... ...

switch from ms contin to opana will i get withdrawal
I have been taking ms contin 15 mg twice a day for a few months and raking it about 4 or 5 times a day the last 4 days since i ran out of my pain dr switched me to opana er 10mg every 12 hours and By some miracle i got it filled today i just wondered if i will have withdrawal from the ms contin even though im still taking the norco and opana. I know before my dr told me if i was still taking opiates i would not get any withdrawals but i ran out kf norco before and had only a little ms contin and had a horrible headache and a little stomach ache so i am sure that is not true i am just afraid as i will be travelling in the next 2 days to visit sick relative. ## No, you shouldn't suffer withdrawals with this dosage, because your doctor has actually raised it.

What is the best replacement for oxycontin.High dose long time user for chronic pain. It seems like nothing else works as well.
I was on the Oxycontin 80mg.3xaday for 16 yrs. I have been tried on alot of other things . I went on methadone w/2 40mg of oxy then they quit making the methadone that iI took. None of the kadian or other things in that class have worked. I am now taking ms contin 100mg. a day w/15 mg.2x a day it is not enough and my Dr. who gave me a hard time off and on about the oxy's now refuses to do the irs that are still available with any other meds. I've took the opana and at the time it seemed fine but pricey that has beeen a couple of years ago just to see. They have a cap I did not take the er's though. My Dr. is funny about writing large numbers of meds. This ms contin could work but he will not for instance give 60 more mgs. He would rater write 200mgs.3x a day because of amts.... ...

diladid pill
I've been taking 8-12 mg of diladid a day fir servere pain n my back I've run out an I have opana 15 mg ERs so will it be ok to take one a day til I see my doctor ,as in it wont make me o.d. They are both strong meds so I'm thinking since I've built up a tolerance to the diladid that I will be able to take at east one pill a day to keep from being sick an in pain without it being too much ? Any thoughts ## Hello, Filly! How are you? You shouldn't make such a switch, without your doctor's approval. Each 8mg of Dilaudid is equal to 10.67mgs of the Opana. Both of these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. And what could cause an OD depends on each individual p... ...

My dr took me off them all except for soma, the gel, and he told me NO MORE METHADONE. He wrote me for opana 20 mg er. Im so scared to swallow that pill, i cant be sleeping all day i have a baby to care for. my dr wrote me 20 mg because on my methadone prescription he things I was taking 8 a day & my Roxy prescription he thinks I was taking 3- 30 milligrams a day, so I'm thi... ...

Oxymorphone 15mg
The round white pil you are talking about with 262 on 1 side & what appears to be a crescent moon is a 15mg extended release oxymorphone "opana" which are definantly made everywhere in the united states! So it is a very common opiate. They are strong depending on your tolerence but would strongly suggest doing less if it's your first time trying them! They make several different ones such as round 5's, 10's & the round 15's with the moon. They also make 5mg, 10mg, 20mg, 30mg & 40mg opana ER which looks like a stop sign & different color for each different mg. Now in some states they have reformulated the stop sign shaped opanas into a gel so that abusers cant crush to snort but even now people have figured out ways to do that! They are very addict... ...

how long does 15 mg morphine stay in your system
Long story short, I was cut off my Opana ER 5mg because I was unable to quit smoking cigarettes in the 2 weeks I had. Crazy but that's the pain management world...they can do whatever they want. Anyway, I was in horrible pain and withdrawal and the doc did nothing to help. I even passed out and injured my shoulder and the surgical site for melanoma surgery I had a week before. I still needed to work and take care of my family. I was able to obtain ten 15mg morphine ER pills to help with pain and withdrawal from the Opana. I took one 15mg pill every day for 7 days. I was able to plead my case and get into a new pain clinic. They got me in quicker than I expected. I will have my first appointment 4 days after taking the 15mg morphine ER. I'm sure they will give me a urine screen. ... ...
