Oxymorphone Overview

Oxymorphone, sold under the brand names Numorphan among others, is a powerful semi-synthetic opioid analgesic (painkiller) developed in Germany in 1914. Pain relief after injection begins after about 5–10 minutes and 15–30 minutes after rectal administration, and lasts about 3–4 hours for immediate-release tablets and 12 hours for extended-release tablets.[2] It is highly addictive and in June 2017 the FDA asked the manufacturer to remove its product from the...

Pain medication cut downs

Is it just me or is all the pain management docs trying to cut everyone down or back!!?? When I went to my last visit the doc had the nerve to ask me if I still needed my Oxymorphone 20mg ER (56). I was like YEAH, what do you think?! This is after they closed down for 3 months and I had to switch to Subutex to not get sick. And I got dropped from the 30mg oxymorphone. And by the way the 20'mgs are garbage. Then my doc asked me to get an MRI on my lower back, which I did the month prior. It just goes to show what a dumb ass he is and how they're so not in tune to what is going on! All they want to do is lower and lower your meds. Has anyone else had their doc try and taper them down or try and lower your stuff? By the way, I'm in south FL. ## Yes,I live on the east coast and ...

Oxymorphone in vegas - 30mg generics - NONEXISTENT

There is some crazy mfgr shortage. Doc wont raise me up to 40s. Been on these things for a few years. Im really starting to get ticked off now. All pharmacys were out last month. And now still out. WTF? ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem getting your medication. Yes, there is a shortage and it is normal for this time of year, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their allotted limit for the year, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Every year, demand inevitably exceeds supply and we end up with shortages for the last few months of the year. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mo...

Oxymorphone 5 mg ir from Aurolife making me sick

I had been on 10 mg oxymorphone for 2 years due to 6 failed lower lumbar back surgeries and 2 neck surgeries, one which left me with a cage and disc replacements. The tightness and pain I feel daily is excruciating. I am 55 years old and can barely get out of bed each morning. So when the laws changed recently on the mg of opioids allowed daily (under 200mg) it changed my life. The doctor prescribed a smaller dose to meet the criteria. So I was on oxymorhpone 10 mg from global pharm with no problems for 2 years. 2 days ago when I started the 5 mg oxymorphone from Aurobindo (Aurolife) pharm manufacturer from India, I have been sick with stomach pains, nausea, vomiting and a headache. I didn’t take it for 7 hours and realized that I felt a little better as the hours went by but as s...

oxymorphone 10mg to morphine 30mg

Sometimes the morphine 30mg doesn't last as long so I've been going going back and forth between that and the oxymorphone 10mg. I was jus wondering because. I am usually on 60mg 3x a day. So jus thought I'd see if anyone knows. ## Hello, Lovely! How are you? The dosages that you mentioned are equivalent. Each 30mgs of Morphine is equal to 10mgs of Oxymorphone. So, if you usually take 60mgs of Morphine per dose, you'd need 20mgs of the Oxymorphone. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## That’s not true, oxymorphone is 10x stronger than morphine so 10mg oxymorphone or...

Xtampza ER or Zohydro

My best friend is trying to go to a weaker medicine but we're not as educated as we wish we were. Which one is stronger, xtampza er or zohydro 40 mg? ## The Xtampza ER is stronger, it contains Oxycodone, 6.7mgs of it is equivalent to 10mgs of the Hydrocodone in the Zohydro. The FDA warns that both medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. What medication(s) is he currently taking?

Oxymorphone discount

Can anyone please help. I am going through transitioning doctors and Insurances. Currently no Insurance. long story short I am having to pay for my prescription of 120 Oxymorphone er 40mg. Yet the lowest I can find is still around $600 !!! With discount card. Yikes!! My research has found there are NO programs available. I have found Discount cards, but nothing substantial. Does anyone have a good lead? I'm grateful I am down to a single pain med. But financially its straining. ## I know exactly how you feel because I've been in the very same situation. That certainly is a ridiculous price. Honestly, the best option is to consider discussing with your pain doctor the possibility of switching to a different pain medication once you get settled with a new doctor because there are ...

Oxymorphone. Nashville, Tn & surrounding areas

I have to find a new pain mgmt Dr asap, my last pain mgmt group stopped taking my insurance last month. Any info on pain mgmt drs in nashville (smyrna, murfreesboro, etc...) or the surrounding cities that will keep me on my current meds? It's taken a year to find the right combo, to control my pain and let me live a semi-normal life. And I know many drs are scared to write for the oxymorphone hcl er. Thank you! I really appreciate any help! ## Have you found a good pain mgmt in the Nashville area? My current ofc (C.P.S.) just notified me of their closing. They gave me 1 extra month of scripts but no referral or idea of where to go. I currently am on 160mme. Can anyone recommend a pain management doctor in mid-Tennessee? Any help is much appreciated.

Oxymorphone Availability and Discount Programs

## My insurance is running out. Are there discount programs for oxymorphone? ## Oxymorphone is still being made. They pulled the brand because it's easily abused. ## Both the brand name (Opana) and the generic are still available. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Tucker, I am sorry, but discount programs are rarely offered for controlled substances, especially once they are available as generics, since by their very nature, they are already cheaper. Some companies occasionally offer them, but it is not a common thing, and even then, they only offer them, until the generic becomes available. Have you asked your doctor about trying a cheaper alternat...

NYC oxymorphone er 30 pharmacy

I have been on the generic oxymorhpone for years and never had a problem getting it where I am from. However now that I am in New York City pharmacies say that they are unable to order it. It's always hard to tell if they legitimately cannot order it or they just don't want to deal with another pain patient. Can anyone recommend pharmacies to me? Brooklyn or Manhattan preferred. ## Helly Bkh, I don't live in NYC so I won't be able to give you a list of specific pharmacies but I can give you some tips on how to handle this situation. It always saves a lot of time to call the pharmacies instead of going to the physical location, more often than not they will tell you over the phone if they carry the brand you're looking for and if not if they have policies in place to ...
