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.

oxycotton verses opana how to kick the habit all together
2 Replies RSS
A friend said they want to get cured of oxy cotton They are taking 2 to 4 pills a day of 40 milligram opana my question is what should they be taking if they want to kick the habit ## Well, Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, which is also a very potent narcotic, so by using it, they are really just switching one for the other. Depending on the severity of their addiction, they should probably consult a doctor and they may want to look into treatment with Suboxone, it contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, coupled with Naloxone to prevent the use of other narcotics, while under treatment with it. You can learn more here: Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Subbies and methadone don't help addicts at all. Trust me. They combine it with other drugs to get higher. I... ...

i wanted to know when this will be available to the public? ## It was approved to treat moderate to severe pain by the FDA on or before June 23rd of this year. So it is simply at matter now of getting docs to prescribe it, and pharmacies to get it stocked on their shelves. It contains Oxymorphone Hydrochloride and there will be two forms available, an Extended Release for long-term pain control, and an instant release version. Here's the article announcing its approval from WebMd: FDA OKs the Pain Drug Opana This is an opiod drug, so it will be strictly controlled and regulated just like other narcotics, no refills, and you will have to see your doctor every month to get a new scrip to use it.

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... ...

Has anyone been on the generic OpanaER that is being made by Global/Impax Pharmaceuticals long enough to give an honest opinion as to how much more effective they are then Opana? My pharmacist just ordered the oxymorphoneER's for me today. I haven't gotten any relief from Opana. I take 60mg of the ER's twice a day with 3, 10mg. oxymorphone pills for breakthrough pain.

i am on morphine sulphate and oxycodone the oxy helps the morphine doesnt is there an alternative to morpine ## There are many other narcotic pain medications on the market. The one most commonly used to replace Morphine, since it is more powerful and requires a much lower dosage is Opana, which contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone.

My friend told me to take this drug to get off of morphene. Do you think this makes sense or is this drug just as bad . Thanks for the help . ## There actually is no medication under that name, that is actually a misunderstood combination of 2 different medications. Oxi is often used to refer to the narcotic Oxycodone and Opana contains the narcotic Oxymorphone, both of which are very potent and can be habit forming and addictive in their own right. The medications that are most commonly used to treat addiction problems are Methadone and Suboxone, but both of them require a doctor's supervision and prescriptions. Have you consulted a doctor for assistance? ...

So, I'm in a big big dilemma. For my own security and well being, I MUST come off my Fentanyl transdermal patch. I've Been using 50mcg/72 hours for about 6 mths straight. I have 3 of the 50mcg patches left and 4 of the 25mcg to help me taper off. I will no longer be using them anymore, just Norcos or oxymorphone IR. I'm absolutely terrified of withdrawals. My doc who put me on them has No idea what it's like to come off like this. Can someone please tell me if and how bad the withdrawals from going down that much will affect me? I can not take any benzos (Ativan, xanax, etc) I have come off the oxymorph about 75% in the last 2 mths. I'm literally freaking out.

Have had multiple fusions on lumber in back patches dont seem to help to much and they have me taking 12 5mg oxy irs a day just wondering what would be a good substitute my in insurance wont cover oxy ers.Wondering if opanas would be a good substitute? ## Both Oxycodone and Opana are very powerful narcotic pain medications. However, Opana (Oxymorphone) is said to be approximately 2x stronger than Oxycodone. In that regard, it may be a more desirable option for short-term pain relief. For longer relief, you can always check and see if Opana ER is covered under your insurance as well... Keep in mind though that all opioids have different effects, where as there is no such thing as "equivalent" dosages. An "equivalent" dosage for one person could cause another to OD. With t... ...

Levorphanol Availabilty
4 Replies RSS
I have a terminal condition, so what do I have to lose by identifying myself? Nonetheless, please respect my privacy. It appears that Roxane manufactures/did manufacture Levorphanol under the trade name Levo-Dromoran and may be available outside the USA. The biochemical characteristics of this drug indicate that it might be a favorable replacement for the Oxymorphone that I take now. Apparently it can be compounded by a specialty pharmacy, but could a prescription be filled under the present circumstances for a manufactured form? ## I did, in fact, receive an e-mail from a representative at Boehringer Ingelheim USA indicating that Levorphanol tartrate is currently manufactured in a generic version by Roxane Laboratories. I assume it is available in 2 and 4mg tablets. Now I simply need t... ...
