What other drugs contain oxymorphone. And what is a normal dosage amount for someone in severe pain from 8 hip surgeries and 2 back surgeries? She's 58 years old with hbp that's controlled with medication. No other health problems.

Hello, Nana! How are you?

Opana is the available name brand for it, though it is also available as a generic, there is also a time released formulation.

As to the dosage, there is no hard and fast rule for that, it depends on the person, the severity of their pain and how opiate tolerant they are, so it's best that she take whatever dosage her doctor has prescribed to see how well it works for her.

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.

If the prescribed dosage doesn't help, then she should inform her doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

You mean pills or drugs? Oxymorphone is the drug and comes in 5 or 10 mg instant release pills, as well as some higher dose extended release pills. Due to the new DEA law the most opiates a person can take as of June 2017 is 90 mg of morphine or its equivalent a day. The equivalent for oxymorphone and oxycodone is 30mg a day (3:1) ratio. The ONLY exception is for people dying of cancer. So it's no longer up to your doctor how much you take. 90mg/30mg a day is not a lot for people in chronic pain or have a tolerance or both. THERE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS LAW. Its a horrible law and shows how lazy the DEA is going after the patients instead of targeting dealers, because catching dealers is hard, and limiting people is easy. Also you can't go to multiple doctors as your state will have a database that every pharmacy has to use to see when you last refilled your meds.
