Oxymorphone morphine equivalent

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone morphine equivalent

opana

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.

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?).
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.

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.
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.
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).
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.
There is a wide range of other medicines in pill form that are powerful such as Morphine and Oxymorphone. 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.
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!!!
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.
Long time perco and morphine user for chronic pain. Totally lost control. Almost lost my job, my family and definetely my self-respect. SUBOXONE - stayed on that for 6 weeks and off the opiates. No more suboxone. My problem was psychologically believing I was in "breakthrough" pain all the time. What a rationalization! Do it.
Hi, I started suboxine on 6-24-08 after a 28, 30 years of addication to morphine & vic's perk's, which ever was avaible. Plus I had been on xananx for 20 yrs. I had used suboxine before from the street. I'd keep & save it for when I didn't have any pills. But when I had the chance to get in the program I did. b/c this time I really want to stop using . I am so tired of running all the time. Suboxine is a federal program. I have go to a drug counsler every 2 weeks. Do you go?
I have taken both//but for the wrong reasons and preferred a subutex buzz over suboxone's buzz #Pain Killer Equivalent Doses (Oral) 1.2mg.............Buprenorphine (Bupe) 200mg............Codeine (Tylenol 2, 3, 4, etc) 30-60mg.........Diacetylmorphine (Heroin) (orally it = morphine) if used IV//insuffilated it's 2x as strong so if used in this manner this value is not correct) 100mg............Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............
You have Oxycontin/Tylox (only pure oxycodone), Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) which is 6-9 times stronger than heroin, Heroin, MS Contin/Kadian (Morphine), Fentanyl which is very potent over 300times stronger than heroin, many overdoses with it, Opana (Oxymorphone) 9 times stronger than heroin, Buprenorphine which is about 25 times strogner than morphine, Methadone, ver very strong and addictive, both buprenorphine and methadone are treatment drugs for opiate addiction, but unless its a severe addic
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%.
I have been on percocet every day for about a year and a half now but I have been taking some form of pain medicine for over 6 years now (I have also used Tramadol, Vicodin, and Morphine ER previously). I currently use percocet for breakthrough pain...pain that occurs outside of the control of my long acting opioid medication, Opana ER (12 hour extended release oxymorphone).
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.
Methadone 30-60mg.........Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............Tramadol (Ultram, Ultracet) **************************************************************************************Now, from what I've read above, for 8-9 yrs you were on 40 mg a day of Norco/hydrocodone....then were switched to oxymorphone...I think that's right.
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.
I guess people look at both of them as alternatives to taking their DOC and a way to detox off of their DOCs so people compare them...but u r right...2 totally different drugs that are used to get clean ...i think methadone was originally intended for long term use to get junkies off the street and to help stop the dangers associated with street drugs like HIV and stuff...jail time...stuff that goes along with drug use...now there ia a generation of pill users...like me...
