Oxymorphone equivalent

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone equivalent

opana

I have built up a tolerance to oxycodone IR that I have had to take 3 times my dose just to get my pain to get down to a moderate level. The research I have done is that oxymorphone is stronger and less mg. I have several questions. Are taking less mg easier on the body? How do I ask my doctor to switch, I don't want to seem like just another patient trying to get high.
Years ago I took mscontin and it made my kidney levels high would opana be better for me than mscontin if so what is the equivalent? Morphine effects my kidneys. I have been on alot of other medications but, morphine is the only one that has effected my kidneys they are starting to hurt.

You use it to convert your fentanyl dosage to an equivalent morphine dose, and then find the equivalent morphine dose to oxymorphone, Generally when converting between opiates, doctors will reduce the new medication strength by a certain percentage to account for incomplete cross tolerance, which is a boost in analgesia you get from rotating from one kind of opiate to another. You can find equal analgesic tables, and apps for calculating equivalent dosing online.
This Oxymorphone ER, it may help your pain better and does not appear to have anything other than a pain med which may be better for your liver Good luck D
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.

3 ratio: 180 mg oxymorphone x 3 = 540 mg of morphine However, because there is the factor of opioid cross-tolerance, usually a 50% reduction in the calculated dose is recommended. 540 mg of morphine x 0.
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.
Morphine is lower in strength than Oxycodone but Oxymorphone is the strongest pain medicine available in pill form. The next tier up from Oxymorphone is Fentanyl. Even with taking 36 norcos a day, you are not opioid tolerant enough for oxymorphone or fentanyl. You need to be on 60 mg of morphine a day consistently for at least 1-2 weeks before switching to oxymorphone or fentanyl. There is also Dilaudid which is slightly weaker than oxymorphone.
Based on the opioid conversion table, 17 mg of hydrocodone is equivalent to 10 mg of morphine. Therefore, 20 mg of Kadian is equivalent to about 34 mg of hydrocodone. So, if you take 20 mg of Norco every 4 to 5 hours, the norco is stronger than the current dose of Kadian you are taking, as over a 12 hour period, you would have taken 40-60 mg of norco (or 23 - 35mg morphine equivalent).
It is quite a bit stronger than dilaudid. The Opana IR comes in 5 mg and 10 mg doses. The 10 mg dose is equivalent to about 20 mg of oxycodone. It is a step down but you could combine a 5 mg and a 10 mg tablet to equal 30 mg of oxycodone. Because of incomplete cross tolerance due to Opana IR (oxymorphone) being a totally different opioid, you could have great success with it as a breakthrough pain med. Dilaudid and Opana IR are the only IR pills stronger than oxycodone on the market.

I was switched from morphine to Opana (which is oxymorphone). Morphine and oxymorphone are totally different opioids. They aren't interrelated in any way. Oxymorphone is extremely potent and is 3 times as strong morphine when taken orally. I would like to know what your dose was of the oxymorphone was when you were taking it (or are you still taking Opana/oxymorphone?).
He titrated my opioid medications up by 60 mg morphine equivalent. I was taking 60 mg of morphine sulfate ER plus 35 mg of percocet a day. He switched me to 30 mg of Opana ER every 12 hours with up to 25 mg of percocet a day for breakthrough pain. My old medications equaled 120 mg of morphine equivalent a day and my new medications equal 180 mg of morphine equivalent a day from just the Opana ER!!! That is a 60 mg increase!!!

I'll just summarize for those that don't know about me so I can get more informed responses. My DOC is oxymorphone. At my worst, I was using 150+ mg/day. I've tapered all the way down to 20mg a day, snorted. I was snorting at least 100mg a day in addition to taking at least 40mg ER orally. Bioavailability for Opana orally is horrid at 10%. Snorting brings it up to around 40%.
pain that occurs outside of the control of my long acting opioid medication, Opana ER (12 hour extended release oxymorphone). Breakthrough pain may not occur everyday as for the most part long acting opioid medications do work as they are supposed to. Percocet is a short acting opioid medication that is used a lot for acute pain...pain after surgery or for a short duration until an injury has healed.
I eventually had the Doctor switch me back to the Oxycodone. 15mg Morphine is equivalent to 5mg of Oxycodone, so you might need to take both tabs of the Morphine to get the same relief. I hope this helps.
it is approximate only as everyone responds differently to different drugs..but serves as a good guide Equivalent Doses In Comparison to 1 milligram of Sub Buprenex.....1 mg (suboxone, subutex) Morphine....30-40 mgs PO/ 10 mg IV Dilaudid........7.5 mg Opana/Oxymorphone........10 mg Oxycodone....20 mg Hydrocodone…30 mg Codeine.........200 mg Methadone..….15 - 20 mg Demerol...........300 mg Darvacet...........
The typical descent into opiate addiction starts usually at lower potency opiates/opioids like codeine, darvon,which is the weakest of all opiates where 100mgs of darvocet is equivalent to 650mgs of aspirin,its that low. Codeine is considered to be the second weakest opiate and is prescribed very frequently commonly in the form of Tylenol 3's.
There is 100mgs of morphine per ml of solution in my pump, and 1 MG OF MORPHINE ADMINISTERED INTO THE SPINAL FLUID EQUALS 120MGS ORALLY!!! Anyway I had the pump put in. My Dr. started me out at 25mgs (equivalent to 2500mgs orally) intrathecally. Within 1 month the pump had become infected with MRSA, a very dangerous/resistant staph infection only treatable with 1 anti-biotic called vancomycin.
I was on about 150mg of Oxycodone and 80mg of Oxymorphone (Opana). It comes to about 300mg of Oxycontin a day. I've had some very rough days and have also felt very alone. My wife is pretty sick of this. This is my 5th or so attempt. I've always gone back to something when the going got tough. Hang in there. You can do it.
Fetanyl is literally a hundred times as potent as morphine. 0.05-0.10 mg. is equivalent to 10-30 mgm's. morphine. This super strength per mg makes it ideal to use in an transdermal patch. Joe, there is a GAP in time that you must allow for the formulation in the patch to work. I cannot remember the specifics on how much time must past before the patch starts working. Ask your doctor or phamacists. I am sure they will have that information.
hydromorphone, hydrocodone, oxycodone, oxymorphone and desomorphine, buprenorphine. Heroin and the other morphines can actually be put in this category as well - as they are derived from natural opiates. Fully synthetic: fentanyl, pethidine, methadone, and propoxyphene. There is a huge difference in the terms synthetic and semi-synthetic. But neither has anything to do on if they are produced in a lab. They all are.
Heres the weird thing,THE DIHYDROCODEINE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS WERE MUCH WORSE and the dose of Morphine 30mg IV 3x day(90mg) is equal to about 300mg Morphine orally per day,which is(theoretically) equal to about 1800mg of dihydrocodeine per day,(10x the equivalent dose and I got 10x more stoned off the Morphine IV)NOW I will point out that,that dose of dihydrocodeine 1800mg if you did take it even in divided doses WOULD KILL YOU no matter what your tolerance.
