Hi,

Since I heard that Impax finally got the green light to distribute Oxymorphone ER (Opana ER) generic through Global Pharmacy. I didn't hesitate to rush to my PM doc and he instantly had me switch to this new drug. He prescribed me 40 mg twice per day to treat my busted back & fibromyalgia.

I noticed the pill is round in shape with G74 on one side with nothing on the other. The color for the 40 mg ER tablet is an orangy/gold color. Ever since Endo ruined their product with the new TRF formulation. I promised myself to jump back on the bandwagon as soon as the generics were released.

Today is a great day for all who suffer chronic pain. Yay! 8-)

I am very glad that it's helping you so well.

Yes, the generics are available now, but it may be a bit before they can easily be found in most pharmacies, due to the monthly limits that have been placed on how much they can stock of any particular controlled substance.

So, if anyone else is looking for it, you may have to be patient for just a few more weeks.

Are there any comments or questions?

By the way, they are amazingly better than the TRFS!!! I take 2 30's a day and they work better than anything I have tried in years! However, they seem to give me pretty severe hangovers in the morning. I tend to be very stiff in the morning and it seems as though it has gotten worse since starting these generics about 2 weeks ago. One theory I have is that since they are working incredibly well I find my self doing a lot more activities during the day, laundry, chasing kids, and a renewed sex life... Thank god! ;). I guess I shouldn't complain. Only other drawback is the cost, with insurance it was still over $400 which is a small price to pay for pain relief but is still hard to come by.

Are these Global generics coated with the same rock surface that Endo put on theirs? or do they actually break down? What strength is available?

They break down incredibly easy but still gel up when exposed to water.

Lucky: tamper resistant formula (TRF)

Like I said before, they still gel up when exposed to moisture. Easy fix for that is evaporation process.

But I've been taking my 40 mg straight up. Since the efficacy and analgesic effect is far superior to the TRF. It's been performing absolute wonders for my pain.

Has anyone been told the Globals oxymorphone isn't generic Opana by their pharmacy? Everywhere I have read it says its generic but I know of a pharmacy that is saying it isn't so when you ask for generic they say there isn't a generic that oxymorphone is a new drug which isn't true because its filed as a generic and it is listed at Global as a generic. Anyone having a hard time receiving the generic? Also, people don't put on this forum how to abuse drugs. That is why they are changing all of them. You are hurting the CPP that need something that works.

You are correct. These generic opana's ER don't need to be abused. They are strong enough to take by mouth and help your pain.

Due to lack of coverage with my insurance, I was switched from Oxycontin 80mg. ER's to Opana as of January 1st. My pain management doctor prescribed me 60mg. Opana ER's (1-40mg and 1-20mg.) to be taken at 8am., and again at 8pm. I am also prescribed generic oxymorphone 10mg.x3 for breakthrough pain. I am getting very little relief from these new Opana's. Is it because of the timerx that's been formulated? How much more pain relief would I expect to get from the generic 60mg. ER oxymorphone? Would it be a noticeable difference? Please advise. Any information would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you.

I Agree, they are tamper resistant, thank God because taken orally at 40 mg 1 every 12 hours, it s a strong . Medication, coming from a chronic pain patient with severe pain. Very effective and I understand how one could easily overdose on this if the time r err lease was able to be broken and injected into a needle, or snorted. HERE is a fact however, I was rx d a month worth and about 3 weeks in my tolerance was growing rapidly.

Bon,

Opana ER now has a generic available. Better known as Oxymorphone HCL ER in all strengths. It's manufactured by Impax pharmaceuticals generic brand division, Global Pharmaceuticals. The generic is the original formula (non-resistant) of Opana ER.

I've been on the generic for two months and the analgesic effect has been awesome. I take the 40-mg tablet twice a day. So getting fancy with this medication isn't necessary to treat my pain.

Hello VERWON. You seem to be the most knowledgable person on this website, so maybe you can answer this for me. I have several spinal injuries and a severe knee injury. I was on oxycontin 80mg. ER's up until the first of this year. My insurance sent me a letter stating that they would no longer cover oxycontin but will now cover Opana. My pain management doctor started me out on 40mg. ER's every 12 hours, with 3-15mg. oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Getting thru January was hell. It seemed like i wan't getting any relief from the Opana. My doctor upped the dosage to 60mg.ER's twice a day with 3-10mg. oxymorphone a day for breakthrough pain. I get some relief when I take the 10mg., but none with the ER's. My doctor wrote a new script for the generics-oxymorphone 40 and 20mg.ER's every 12 hours along with the 3-10mg oxymorphone IR's. I have also noticed upon occasion that I can see 2 pills in my stool after a bowel movement in the morning. Is this due to the tamper resistant stuff they put in Opana to make it abuse-proof? Also, do you think that when I do get my new scripts for the generic that I should just try a 40mg. by itself in case they are really that much more effective then the reformulated Opana's that I'm taking now? I do not abuse my medications, and only take them orally. I'm sorry about all the questions, but I do not want to overdose. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Peaches. When I was on the patch, I had the same problem of them not staying on my skin. I went to my local pharmacy and bought some water-resistant adhesive tape and had to tape all four edges to my skin. That did the trick for me!! I hope that this will work for you, as well.

I have been having that problem with my last two refills..I also don't seem to be having the pain relief anymore and I am relying more and more on my breakthru pain medication. I don't know what else would work as well...does anyone know of anything else to try. I am lucky that this is the only pain medication covered under a program by Johnson and Johnson. I don't have any insurance so I have to be careful of costs. I feel I am never out of pain anymore.

The generic version of Opana are incredible!! I had never been prescribed the original Opana before the company made them tamper-proof. I was prescribed the reformulated Opana in November of 2012, and got no pain relief from them. In fact, the entire pill was showing up in my stool pretty much undigested. The generics are made by Impax/Global Pharmaceuticals, and are working incredibly well. My pain is now controlled by taking 1-40mg, and 1-20mg pill every 12 hours, with 3-10mg oxymorphone every 8 hours for breakthrough pain. Most days I don't even need to take my breakthroughs because the ER's are doing their job! Good luck!! We finally have a winner back!!
