Oxymorphone vs oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone vs oxycodone


1mg of oxymorphone is equal to about 2mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> 1mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> is equal to about .5 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> is half as potent, mg for mg. So an 80mg Oxycontin would be roughly equal to a 40mg Opana ER A 20mg Opana ER would be like a 40mg dose of Oxycontin Converting instant release release oxycodone to Opana ER is different though. 15mg of oxycodone instant release would be, in terms of potency, roughly equivalent to 15mg of Opana ER.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> is about 2 to 3 times stronger than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span>. 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.
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.
5 mg bid yields a 5 mg increase in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. 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.
He went to the hospital and is ok- htank God. He was taking 10 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> ER. Does that mean that he got 10 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> all at one time? Would that not be the same thing as taking two 5mg percs?
I was on oxycontin, now I am on ms contin. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> is metabolized into noroxycodone and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> and some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> remains unmetabolized. As far as pain control goes, ms contin, for me, is highly superior....highly! Again, that is for me. The only reason the high is greater with the oxycontin is because of the high percentage that doesn't get lost in the liver. Also, ms contin lasts a lot longer for me. And, it seems to have a much more soothing effect....especially with the pain.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span>, it is often present in the urine after oxycodone falls below the detection threshold.

Oxy? As in Oxycontin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span>? Have you ever tried any of those? The Oxy's work better for me than the Hydro's for pain relief.
This time, I was one 150mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> (10 x 15mg) and 80mg of Opana (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span>) per day. I've always crushed and snorted them. This was clearly the worst time but I was determined and have been clean for a week. The first 4 days were pure hell but I started feeling a little better on days 5 and 6. Today, day 7, has been pure hell. I've been irritated, restless, exhausted, and just miserable. I've had my 3 year old son with me the whole time since day one.
I have recently been referred to a new pain management doc and he is in the process of adding/switching me over to Kadian for long-acting pain control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. just the Norco I have been on....my question primarily is how long will it take for me to adjust to the change from short acting opiate to the extended release meds...
Endo applied to the FDA on December 19. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> is metabolized into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> and noroxycodone. Numorphan used to come in pills, but they were abused much too often...they were called blues. And, people loved them.
I can’t tell you the number of patients we receive for detoxification that were given a prescription for Vicodin for a minor pain, like a backache or tooth pain, which eventually led them to take a stronger opiate like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span>, creating a domino effect. It’s become a trend in this country for medical professionals to write prescriptions for hydrocodone drugs too quickly, which is creating an epidemic of these drugs being overprescribed to patients who often times don’t need them.
Steve, Awhile ago I posted a question to you concerning my fluctuating pain levels cause me to have withdrawal symptoms several times a month. Your reply was to have my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> switched to a longer lasting pain med to help with the withdrawal symptoms. My next appointment is comming up and I was wondering what pain meds are long acting so I can suggest some to my pain specialist.
Starts with poppy-based raw material (codeine, morphine, thebaine) and chemically alter these in the lab to come up with hydromorphone, hydrocodone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span>, <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.
Helllo, I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> on and off for about 3 years. I had 2 surgeries. One was for ovarian cancer. I had a complete hysterectomy. It was 3rd stage. I was told to have chemo, but I refused. In about a year I ended up with bowel surgery and after that went through 7 treatments of chemo. After a year in a half I was told I had a reoccurrence so I did chemo for another 6 treatments.
A while back I posted a topic on Morphine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span> 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.
As to what is normal. The doctor is correct. Age plays a factor. Download the Age <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span> (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.
Morphine 20mg..............<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxycodone</span> (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oxymorphone</span> (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
