They are both different opiates, but you've been given an equivalent dose.

There really is no better or best medication that anyone should tell you, it depends on you and what works best to relieve your pain.

Have you tried the Opana, yet?

The FDA classifies 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.

Opana is probably one of the strongest narcotics out there for in home use. I'm not talking about injectables, pills only. It has very powerful very addictive opiates. It will most definitely cure what ails you on the pain spectrum!!! Stay safe.

Opana (Oxymorphone) is a fair but stronger than Oxycontin. And if you're looking into equivalent doses, to give you an idea, it would take 6.67mg of Oxycodone to equal 10mg of Morphine, but just 3.33mg of Opana to be the same. [1] So in theory, 40mg Opana ER should deliver the same therapeutic effects of 80 mg Oxycodone. I hope this helps to clear things up a bit!
