Oxymorphone vs hydromorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone vs hydromorphone

opana

Avatar_n_tn 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.
Avatar_m_tn Are opana and hydromorphone the same drug (I know dilaudid is immediate release and opana is extended release, but are they same chemically?
Avatar_n_tn 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.
541953_tn?1262589826 The difference is Opana is 2 different compounds essentially. OxyMorphone if I remember correctly, so it should work differently than just Morphine alone.
2017901_tn?1328643284 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 oxymorphone or the hydromorphone it is like i didnt even take anything i dont feel anything at all
Avatar_n_tn Tylenol 3 dosent have the same pain relief as either hydrocodone or Oxycodone,Oxy being the strongest of the 3 being converted in Oxymorphone by the liver,hydrocodone is turned into Hydromorphone and Codeine into Morphine but the thing is only a small ammount of it.
Avatar_n_tn 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.
Avatar_f_tn I think they are developing an Oxymorphone nasal spray, which has a BA of~40%. I've always had the best results with Opana/Oxymorphone (vs Oxycodone) because it lasts longer, it is more "targeted" and hits the right receptor(s) that helps my pain without the "rush" or euphoria Oxycodone seems to produce for me. Oxycodone gives me energy (part of the euphoria, I suppose) and it makes it tougher to sleep.
Avatar_n_tn 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.
1866508_tn?1333988213 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.
Avatar_m_tn Starts with poppy-based raw material (codeine, morphine, thebaine) and chemically alter these in the lab to come up with hydromorphone, hydrocodone, oxycodone, oxymorphone, 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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.
