Oxymorphone vs fentanyl

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone vs fentanyl


Injection vs. Oral or IR VS SR Oxycodone produces more euphoria and a faster onset of action! So, if you compare oral Dilaudid to Oxycodone, without question, Dilaudid(Hydromorphone)IR is less addictive than Oxycodone IR(Percocet). Even correct dosage of Oxycodone produces ''Morphine-like'' Euphoria With that said; Dilaudid(Hydromorphone) is more than twice as potent as Oxycodone and if a person injects Hydromorphone it too is highly addictive!
The difference is Opana is 2 different compounds essentially. OxyMorphone if I remember correctly, so it should work differently than just Morphine alone.
_) WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OXYMORPHONE AND HYDRAMORPHONE? ( OPANA VS. DILAUDED?) I'm doing really well with the opana now and I'm actually on Kadian again instead of the Fentanyl I seem to be doing pretty well. If anyone knows the diffence with the prefeixes of Hydra and Oxy, please let me know. My best to everyone. Hope this question finds you pain free at the moment.
So if you remember I converted your total daily dose of Fentanyl to Oxycontin and it came out to be 210 mg of Oxycontin. That is 150 mg of Oxycontin less than what you were taking through Fentanyl vs. 90 mg of Oxycontin more than you were taking. It now makes perfect sense to me why you are in so much pain on the Fentanyl. Converting 360 mg of Oxycontin to Fentanyl results in 150 mcg/hr...this is conservative.
I know Percocet has both Oxymorphone AND Acetaminophen in it, and Oxycontin has Oxymorphone only. I'm not certain what the Acetaminophen brings to the table as far as drug-interactions go, but your statement that the Perc and the Oxy are the same (2x5mg vs. 1x10mg) sounds about right. Maybe someone in the Pain-Management Community would know. They're VERY familiar with narcotic pain-meds over there (as it's a part of their daily lives), so they might know better.
5 mg bid yields a 5 mg increase in oxycodone vs. a 15 mg increase. The 7.5 mg oxymorphone ER dose bid would be the closest in terms of equivalent oxycodone dosing. So conversions are not simple and to spare folks of all of this math, I leave it out and provide only what I think is necessary to answer the question.
there is opana ER( oxymorphone- very very potent, stronger than heroin, but in a time release provides pain relief all day), then there is now fentanyl patches that last up to 72 hrs, theya re measured in micrograms and is super potent about 9 times as strong as H.fentanyl w/o the patch only alst 2 hrs max and has a super rush, but is significantly slowed down from the patches time release mechanism..
There are also other long acting meds beside Oxycontin that you could look into such as Oxymorphone (Opana), Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), and Fentanyl which all have a potency that is greater than morphine. My appointment is Jan 3rd, I will let you know how it goes.
I know I am banned from this board, but I had to look up fentanyl to see what it was. I happened to run across this site: They are giving out meds to worms!!!! check it out: http://www.opioids.com/fentanyl/subjective.
I dont feel like ive relapsed in the sense of using vs not using.
The only true synthetics that are common for us with chronic pain are the fentanyl family (Fentanyl, Sufentanil, Alfentanil, etc.) and methadone, which are come from very different chemical processes. The chemistry is not too complicated, if you have any background in it. As for a difference is testing for them, that's largely not true. Most or all the semisynthetics are broken down into common metabolites (e.g.
Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 37.5µg............Fentanyl (not sure on this one, anyone know the oral dose equivalence for Fentanyl?) 4mg................Levorphanol (Dromoran) 300mg............Meperidine (Demerol) 10-20mg.........Methadone 30-60mg.........Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
As to what is normal. The doctor is correct. Age plays a factor. Download the Age vs (Average) Testosterone chart in the Files area. If you look it over you will see that at your level it would be "normal" but you would need to be over 100 years old! Not good. The average normal level at your age is over 600 ng/dL and the current thinking from the AACE guidelines is that levels under 325 ng/dL are the new treatment (or further diagnosis at least) indicated.
