Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone oxymorphone

oxycontin

1mg of oxymorphone is equal to about 2mg of oxycodone 1mg of oxycodone is equal to about .5 mg of oxymorphone Oxycodone is half as potent, mg for mg. So an 80mg Oxycontin would be roughly equal to a 40mg Opana ER A 20mg Opana ER would be like a 40mg dose of Oxycontin Converting instant release release oxycodone to Opana ER is different though. 15mg of oxycodone instant release would be, in terms of potency, roughly equivalent to 15mg of Opana ER.
My dr took me off 30mg oxycodone ir and replaced it with 10mg opana ir, because my tolerance to oxycodone was too high. I have been on opana a few days now, and I am doinh pretty well (none of these meds completely relieve my back pain even after several surgeries) but I would say trust in your dr, and if what he is doing doesnt help, let him know as soon as you can.
I've read about Opana ER and see it's oxymorphone. I know hydrocodone is Vicodin and oxycodone is Percocet without the Tylenol. What is oxymorphone? I had been given Dilaudid after a surgery and it did nothing. I've put a call into my doctor's office. I see her in two weeks but I don't think I can make it two weeks the way I am now. We've got the winter looming, and it's always my worst time of year. The holidays are coming and I want to feel okay.
I am going through serious withdrawal. I suffer chronic back and hip pain and my doctor can't seem to find the source of the pain. So I started to medicate myself. I started off with oxy 30s. then I started dating a guy who also is in chronic pain and when I would start getting "sick" from not being able to get the 30s he gave he some of his oxymorphone, opana, and I don't want to continue taking his meds anymore.
You've asked a good question and although it may seem straight forward there's a lot to be considered. Oxymorphone is seven times stronger then morphine while hydromorphone is five times stronger than morphine. They are in the same synthetic family of drugs. Although on "paper" Oxymorphone is more potent then Hydromorphone that doesn't necessarily mean that one is more effective then the other. Pain management is individualized.
I flushed my pills yesterday morning and got on 5mg oxycodone from my doc to continue my taper. I don't think it's helping. I got some sleep with the help of Clonodine, but I feel awful anyhow. I'm angry, grouchy, and just want to be left alone, which is not possible here. I'm about to try a shower to see if that helps any. I can't believe I let this happen to myself. I thought I was smarter than that. Good lord. I know the worst is yet to come too.
Oxycodone is metabolized by the liver into oxymorphone. Oxymorphone is about 2 times stronger than oxycodone based on pharmacology. When I was first switched to Opana, the drowsiness and tiredness were unreal! It was a real struggle for me at first and I also have a desk job. However, the sedation effects only lasted for a month at the most. Now I don't get sedated anymore and in fact I am more alert than I was on Morphine.
Oxycodone to morphine to hydromorphine to fentanyl to methadone to oxymorphone to morphine to oxycodone to hydromorphine, round and round. Oxycodone is no longer effective for me after a month or two. Talk about tolerance -- mine is amazing. Until oral fentanyl is approved for non-cancer use, I can't use that one anymore either -- I require too many patches. So, I've got a pool of four medications to use for pain, and every year or two, I change partners.
I have used all 3 before but mainly oxy, however if I was ever able to get some opana or dilaudid I would not pass up that 'opportunity'. If I had as easy access to hydromorphone or oxymorphone as I do to oxycodone, I would have stopped using oxycodone in favor of either of the 2.
oxymorphone is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone. Also, oxymorphone, especially in its instant release package, has a considerably stronger punch than hydromorphone. Honestly, you probably couldn't even get diacetylmorphine(HEROIN) on the streets that is more potent. Money rules the world people. Pharmaceutical companies bought their rights to sell dope legally. God bless us all.
Taken Oxycodone 30mg for about a month now. Does hardly anything to quell the enormous back pain I have. Can crushing it and drinking it with apple juice make a difference? Will it work faster?
It all started with 10 mg percocet and has gradually escalated to about 120-180 mg of oxycodone per day. I have quit taking percocet at will in the past, cold turkey multiple times in the past. My fiance left me in February of this year (probably the right decision on her part). But when she left i had been about a week sober from all drugs thanks to her support. Ever since then Ive been in a downward spiral trying to numb my pain with pain killers.
I posted on your other post and I feel your pain because like I said I was on the same meds at the end of my active addiction and not even suboxone would knock the edge off of withdrawal from opana and I didn't even know there was a drug strong enough that suboxone wouldn't help but I found out the hard way oxymorphone is nothing to play with and I was crushing 40mg extended release up and snorting 6-9 of them a day on top of the oxy I was also taking way to much of.
Hey all, I've been addicted to oxycodone since age 14. I'm age 27 now and ready to put this behind me. I've lost everything because of it. I've lost my family, friends, multiple good jobs, lost my good credit, and it all of a sudden dawned on me that I'm an addict and its the source of my problems. I'm gonna call a methadone/sub clinic Monday. I do have chronic pain, I was shot with a 12 gauge shotgun in july 2011 and it really messed me up. Do you think a Dr.
With a nod toward the concerns listed in the earlier posts, the closest thing to oxycodone available is oxymorphone, which is sold as Opana and Opana ER. It is exactly twice the potency of oxycodone; I actually prefer it for treatment of pain in the cases that an opiate is required because the ER formulation, at least in my experience, seems to be a 'true 12 hour med' whereas patients sometimes come up short on oxycontin when it is dosed twice per day.
Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew the differences between Oxycodone and Tylenol w/Codeine?? I know they both have acetomenophen. But, the Tylenol with Codeine has Codeine obviously. I was taking the one with 30mg. of codeine. Now I have Oxycodone 7.5-325. What is the opiad in this drug? Is it also codeine, or a different drug? I know my body's reaction to the T3, so I am a little nervous to try this new one....oxycodone. Is it stronger, not as strong, the same???
What is the accurate opiate equivalence of Darvocet-N 100 in terms of Oxymorphone, Hydrocodone or Morphine?
alprozolam 39 ug/L oxymorphone 60 ug/L sertraline 460 ug/l oxycodone can these meds all taken together cause death?and can you tell me how much mg each pill is?thanks.
Just wondering if anyone has any info on the differences between Opana which is Oxymorphone and Oxycodone? My PM Dr. wants to switch me from high doses of Oxycodone to some form of oxymorphone. Just want to know if anyone has taken them both and know what I should expect from this switch? Good or Bad idea? Just curious because the hundreds of mg's I've been taking of Oxycodone over the years has made me build up an unreal tolerance for the drug.
Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
I recently was given a drug mouth swab by my physician and tested positive for the following; oxycodone 153.3ng, oxymorphone 38.9 ng, tramadol was greater than 8000 ng. i take the following meds; opana er, citalipram, trazadone and atarax for sleep. how did the oxycodone and tramadol test positive? my doc will no longer prescribe the opana because of the other drugs in my system. plz help me understand it seems like a great amt of tramadol and im worried as to how it got in my system.
I was on this medication from Jan-Apr of this year at 30 mg bid (i.e., twice a day). 5 mg of Opana ER is equivalent to 10 mg of oxycodone. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Percocet. I don't know how many 5/325 mg Percocets you were taking a day before switching to the Opana ER 5 mg, but to have equivalent pain relief from the Opana ER, you had to have taken only 2 Percocets a day.
I am perscribed 5mg oxycodone 1-2 tablets per day up to six a day what is an acceptable drug urine screen for this amount? mine was as follows Oxycodone 261 H < 50 ng/mL Oxymorphone 658 H < 50 ng/mL....
You can even develop hypersensitivity reactions to other phenanthrene derivative opioid agonists ( hydrocodone (hycodan 1mg), hydromorphone, levorphanol, oxycodone, oxymorphone). Another precipitating factor is they are known to release histamine which can further precipitate the allergy. Subsequent exposure can be life threatening. Hence, future exposure to such drugs should be avoided and I advise you to avoid Hycodan. Take care and regards.
You could look into Oxycontin as an extended release med if the morphine you were taking was also long acting. Also, oxymorphone and hydromorphone come in both extended and immediate release form. Fentanyl is also another long acting med to look into. Oxycodone IR or roxicodone is a good immediate release med for chronic pain. I had no idea morphine raised bilirubin levels. Of course stay away from any combo meds that contain acetaminophen or tylenol such as vicodin and percocet.
Endo has been the major distributor of oxymorphone throughout the world and currently markets oxymorphone in the United States and elsewhere as Opana and Opana ER. Opana is available as 5 mg and 10 mg tablets; Opana ER, an extended-release form of oxymorphone, is available as tablets in strengths of 5 mg, 7½ mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, and 40 mg.

It is very true that wen testing for Oxycodone that it can come up positive for Morphine or Oxymorphone. Doctors often do not understand how to read the tests. The article I found proving that is www.jenniferschneider.com/articles/Conv_of_Oxycodone_7_20_7.html It is a great article that explains why Oxycodone is often read as Morphine.
Opana ER is stronger than oxycodone mg to mg. For example, 1 mg of oxymorphone is stronger than 1 mg of oxycodone...to be precise, oxymorphone is approx. 2 times stronger than oxycodone. Therefore, to get equivalent strength of oxymorphone through oxycodone, one has to take their oxymorphone dosage and multiply it by 2 to yield equivalent oxycodone dosing in mgs.
Consider that Percocet tablets-- medications used to treat surgical pain in dose ranges of 1-2 every 4 hours-- contain 5-10 mg of oxycodone. You are taking the equivalent of 70 of the 5 mg tabs every day, when the dose after major surgery would be on the order of 5-10 tablets per day. The largest dose I've seen in a patient addicted to oxycodone is about 700 mg per day. Most people addicted to oxycodone in my practice were taking around 200-300 mg per day.
