Oxymorphone vs hydromorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone vs hydromorphone

opana

Also, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span>, especially in its instant release package, has a considerably stronger punch than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydromorphone</span>. 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.
Are opana and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydromorphone</span> the same drug (I know dilaudid is immediate release and opana is extended release, but are they same chemically?
That' sall well and good, but I know for a fact that I feel much differently when taking one vs. the other. Maybe he was handing me a line.
The difference is Opana is 2 different compounds essentially. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> if I remember correctly, so it should work differently than just Morphine alone.
i also have hydromorphone would it be better to taper off one or both at same time how is things working for you, i have noticed i guess with taken some kind of pain med for so long i dont get much effect from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> or the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydromorphone</span> it is like i didnt even take anything i dont feel anything at all
Tylenol 3 dosent have the same pain relief as either hydrocodone or Oxycodone,Oxy being the strongest of the 3 being converted in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> by the liver,hydrocodone is turned into hydromorphone and Codeine into Morphine but the thing is only a small ammount of it.
5 mg bid yields a 5 mg increase in oxycodone vs. a 15 mg increase. The 7.5 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> 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.
When oxycodone metabolizes, it leaves 15% as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span>. Because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> has a longer half life than oxycodone, it is often present in the urine after oxycodone falls below the detection threshold.

Another 'fine line' is the psychological dependence vs. physical dependence aspect. The body has a funny way of tricking you into thinking you're in more pain than you really are. Case & point... me. While I was taking narcotic pain-killers for my chronic-pain & acute-pain, both associated with kidney-stones, my mind & body had me convinced, utterly CONVINCED, that I was in a substantial amount of pain.
There are also other long acting meds beside Oxycontin that you could look into such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> (Opana), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydromorphone</span> (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.
Starts with poppy-based raw material (codeine, morphine, thebaine) and chemically alter these in the lab to come up with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydromorphone</span>, hydrocodone, oxycodone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span>, desomorphine, diacetylmorphine (heroin), etc. Opioid, fully synthetic: Fentanyl, pethidine, methadone, tramadol, dextropropoxyphene, buprenorphine (suboxone), etc. Created in lab with no need for raw material derived from the poppy. Many derived from petroleum.
A while back I posted a topic on Morphine Vs Negative Drug screen. It has some very informative info and also explains why the tests can come out negative. Scroll down a few pages and you'll find it or PM Beargizmo, I sent it to him.
