Is Opana 10mg Stronger Than A Oxycodone 30mg

i have new pesription and my dr. wants me to try opana 10mg. is this drug stonger and how much stonger than my last drug oxycodone 30mg.. ## The Oxymorphone in Opana is stronger than Oxycodone, but you aren't on an equivalent dose, it would take 15mgs of it to equal each 30mg dose of the Oxycodone. Learn more Opana details here. So, in reality, it's twice as strong, but you may not get as much pain relief, since you aren't on an equivalent dosage. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I have severe Venous insufficiency,anxiety disorder,cirrhossis,osteoarthitis ,severe fractered leg, sixth cranial nerve palsey ,legs are black and necrotic,spleen very enlarged , anvanced hep c,plates left arm old injury , insomonia ,ptsd,inopperable dueto such low platleat count 35,000...

Opana 5mg IR vs ER - Which is better?

I injured my back & neck in 1998 & 2001. I have herniated dics L4-L5, & L5-S-1 and Bone Spurs in my Neck. I started out with a Worker’s Compensation Doctor. However they started to deny more & more treatment as time went by. In the Fall of 2014 they denied my Pain Medications. At that point I went to Kaiser Permanente Medicare, if they would treat me for by painful back injury & they said they would, I continued with Opana & Topamax. However, they do not put you “under” for Epidural shots” so I only had a few. They are just too PAINFUL! A local sedative just doesn’t do it for me. I’ve been on Opana 5mg. 5 times a day, for many years. Last year my Primary Care Doctor at Kaiser asked me to reduce it to 4 times a day, Yikes! I...

White Round Pill With Capital E in a circle on one side and the number 5 on the other

is pretty small and has what looks to be a capitol E circled on one side and the number 5 on the other.. I'm clueless because i haven't found ANY RESULTS. ## Based on your description, the closest match I could find is a small round light pink pill imprinted with "E" on one side and "5" on the other. However there doesn't appear to be an additional circle around the letter E, as you mentioned. This particular pill is identified as Opana ER (5mg). Manufacturer: Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. Opana is indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain and also as a preoperative medication to alleviate apprehension, maintain anesthesia, and as an obstetric analgesic. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Opana Details I hope this helps! ## This is defin...

20mg Opana er, green stop signs

I've been snorting 20mg Opana for 3 months now and It really works for my pain that way. 11 years of pain from L5-S1 post op failure. I feel like a drug addict sometimes but I can rationalize most anything to releive my pain. The pills are green octagons with a 20 on one side. I use a razor from a utility knife to carefully remove the coating 'cause ya can't snort up that. I like to save the shavin's in a little pill jar and I can usually get a nice little pile of powder if I sift them through a tea strainer. then I eat the shavings. I break the shaved pill in half and slowly press one of the halves with a bic lighter untill its all nice and powdery chop it up with the razor .......it works a lot better if you sniff it up an hour after a good fatty meal... ## I can only ...

opana or fentanyl confused about dosing

Hello. I have been on 25 mcg of fetanyl patch every 48 hours for 9 months and 15mgs of oxycodone 4 times daily for breakthrough pain. I am thinking about getting off of the patch. How much Opana or (Oxymorphone) would be the equivalent of 25mcg of the fentanyl patch? How much Opana or (Oxymorphone ER) would be the best dose to switch to with no withdrawals? ## Hello Gia! How are you? Is the patch helping? Why do you wish to stop using it? You need about 2.8mgs of Oxymorphone to be equivalent to each 25mcg Fentanyl patch, but there are going to be differences in the time release duration, and dosing frequency. On your doctor can help you decide if your doing so would be safe for you, and the best way to do so. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, an...

pain clinics that treat out of state patients

Does anyone know of pain clinics that take out of state patients? Also looking to get put on opanas, or something like that. Been on loratab 1000's for 15 years and they don't do the job anymore. I realy hope someone out there knows someplace in GA or TN. Hope to hear from you soon and thanks. ## First off, there are no Lortab tablets that contain 1,000mgs of anything. And next is a question, why aren't you looking in your home state? Even if you do find a doctor that will treat you, when you're from out of state, most pharmacies will not fill your prescription under such circumstances. ## I am looking for a pain management dr in the Saginaw area who takes out of state claims from New Jersey, I' m thinking about relocating from Delaware.

Generic Opana-People Speak up

They are saying that the new opana works as well as the old. There are so many peoples statements that I have read saying the new don't work as well but yet Endo states their research don't prove that. All people who have a real medical problem that causes pain and takes new opana and it doesn' work as well as the old needs to speak up. One person can't change anything. People who are being treated awful by medical doctors and pain clinics because they have pain also need to speak up. ## Read what Endo states what they think will happen with Opana in 2013-14. *double-digit prescription growth in products like Voltaren Gel and the reformulated OPANA ER which will drive growth in our branded pharmaceutical businesses.

Opana not working

I take Opana 20mg three times a day for chronic pain, along with Roxicodone 15mg 4X's a day. I was wondering if anyone out there had noticed that the Opana's don't do anything as much as the Roxis/Oxycodone do? I also just use them as perscribed and am only in my 20's and have had over 35 surgeries. I go see my pain management physician in a couple of days and want to know if anyone out there has tried something similar to what I'm not and what they might have been switched to to get better relief of pain. Thank you for any advice. ## Everyone is different, so it could be that the Oxycodone works better for you, than the Opana. Given how many surgeries you've had, you may also have a very high tolerance to pain medications. The FDA warns that these medications ca...

Opana's pain relieving efficacy

I am wondering if Opana will help me? I was in a bad accident at work, bi-lateral injuries. Lost all my fingers on my left hand but one, my ring finger. I can not use my right arm yet. Physical therapy is very hard and painful. I hope Opana can help because nothing else has been able to. ## It should work for your pain. Its a great medicine for pain relief without making you feel fuzzy headed. ## I take Ms continue but on occasion have had opana. I found it very effective in killing pain in the 10 and ,15,yes they use to make that dose. However be very careful if you stop. I got yanked of my morphine due to a faulty test and ended up in cardiac critical care. Flu feeling my ass. ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone, it is a potent opiate analgesic.

Oxymorphone 5mg

What do they look like and whats the difference between them and opana 5mg? ## The only difference is that Opana is the brand name for it and Oxymorphone is the active ingredient, thus the generic name. There are several generics on the market and they will all have different markings, according to federal law, to enable their identification, in case of emergency. Some of the descriptions and markings of 5mg tablets include: E794 5, blue, round 54 596, white, round E612 5, blue round And this is not a comprehensive list, just a few examples. If you have a tablet that you are questioning and it doesn't match any of those, please post back with the markings from it and I will gladly check for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## What milligram is a moon on one side and 228 and...

Opana 40 Er

Hello I take opana 40mg Er 3x daily with 8mg of deluded for break threw pain. I have l3-l5 fussed I have Ben on opana now for 6months before that mscontin and oxy. The opana does work for me with little to no side effects I have to agree with fellow commenters about the abuse of the drugs. All it does is make it hard on people like my self that suffer from chronic pain. It is good that they make the drugs more tamper proof but in some cases the drug failed to work because of the new formulation. ## @Bahm, In my honest opinion, it really comes down to just being open to other forms of treatment options so one isn't fully dependent upon big pharma (or any other single source of medication) to cover all their needs. That way if something does happen with a medication, we don't nece...

Opana/Oxymorphone Pharmacology

I would like to know why Opana ER is so powerful? It comes in 10, 20, 30, & 40 mgs. I took this medication once and it made OxyContin feel far inferior as an all around mood enhancer and pain reliever. What is the difference in the pharmacology from OxyContin to Oxymorphone? ## It is just a different medication that is stronger than Oxycodone. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Years ago, I remember Oxycontin being the most powerful one available. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Oxymorphone is to morphine what oxycodone is to codeine. There are many stronger ones then oxymorphone like fentanyl. Some of the hydrogen atoms are replaced with oxygen and it ...

generic opana er 20 mg

I get the generic opana er 20 mg. They come like plastic. They are green, feel like plastic, say 20 on one side and E on the other. The plastic crap makes my stomach a mess. I have gastritis and sigmoiditits. Do I have to have my pills like plastic form? ## Hello, Dawn! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. It's not actually plastic, but the substance they use for the time released mechanism does irritate some people's gastrointestinal system. The FDA lists 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. You could try speaking to your doctor to see if they have some idea to relieve the stomach discomfort it causes, or ...

Generic Opana ER

Wanted to share with everyone how happy I am to have finally received the new generic Opana ER 20mg tablets from my pharmacy. I had found Opana to be very effective for my chronic pain and was very sad when they switched it over to the new formula as it wasn't nearly effective as the original octagon shaped tablets and caused stomach aches. These new generic ones seem to me to be as effective as the original formula had been. The tablets I received show to be made by Global Pharmaceuticals and are a small, round, green tablet with G73 imprinted on them. I'm happy to report that these are just like the original formula. Now I no longer have stomach aches from taking those plastic pills that Endo is selling. I sure do hope that these remain as they are, but I have read a couple ar...

Opana vs Oxymorphone

Opana costs too much for the same thing that Oxymorphone does. Opana is about $500+/-, while Oxymorphone is $47. ## opana and oxymorphone are the same thing, and you can get high off it. They are avaliable in 10's ir and 20's & 50's in er. ## Opana works for me. I just picked up 130 pills for $1,000 and some change. Worth every penny. ## i took oxymorphine before is tat ifferent than hydromorpone i justcant believe the way people judge people that obviously are suffering blows me away ## if u picked up 130 of any type of opana it is well worth your money. you could sale it for more than that ## Opana ER's are available in: 10mg. 20mg. 30mg. 40mg.

Opana or Oxymorphone 10 mg immediate release use and dangers

I am prescribed 6 Opana 10 mg immediate release, and I have come a long way considering they ran me as a guinea pig and had me on it all - from Fentanyl patch 100 (yes that's right 100 mcg), and the breakthrough med was dilaudid 4 mg and the 8 mg, as well as having been on OxyContin (the op kind / not the old ones). That was in my experimental days. I was on the 60's of those which didn't help even with the breakthrough pain. I lost a lot of good friends from the old ones. They overdosed and died. The new version never touched my pain either. I was on 15, to 20, to 30 mg. Also Lortab and Percocet (the 10's). None helped my pain. All you think is about is the pain and just wanting a normal life. And not having to depend on damn pills ever again. To be able to have babies ...

Opana (Oxymorphone) and Drug Testing

I am sick of never seeing good information online and at how inaccurate most of the stuff was that I came across when desperately searching for answers myself. So, what follows is what I know about Opana drug testing. Everything here is accurate, and learned first hand. It's not vague, and there are no guesses, no assumptions, no generalizations. I know from experience, dude, if ya know what I mean.... Opana (oxymorphone) is detectable in urine anywhere from 48 to 96 hours (2 to 4 days), depending on dosage, length of use, and the person's size and metabolism. The quickest I have personally gotten it below detectability without diluting it is 60 hours. I have tested positive before after 55 hours clean, also. I know a little bit about opana drug testing because I have been on a ...
