How long does oxymorphone last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does oxymorphone last


Avatar n tn Does anyone have an idea,as to how strong any strength Opana(brand name) is to Oxycodone? My new PM Dr. wants me to get down from 40mg of Methadone to about 20mg,in only one weeks time,before he starts precribing me Opana. I've already had been taking huge amounts of 15mg Oxycodone a day,for 5 years also,along with the Methadone. I tried to explain to him,just how tolerant,I had become to the Oxy,but I think it fell on def ears.
Avatar f tn failed to say this to me or maybe I'm wrong....6-7 months of Tramadol in your long after stopping does it stay in your system?? I know nothing about any of this? I'm confused. He didn't say I would feel this way. Hope my post made sense?
Avatar f tn I take the morphine at 10am and at 8 or 9pm. The morphine does not last 12 hours like it is prescribed. Nor does it last 8 hours. It lasts only 6 hours. I am being forced to switch insurances at the end of the year so I am hanging on until I meet my new physician next year. Hoping some changes can be made to my pain meds at that time. I am sure you are experiencing great pain relief with this new medication.
Avatar n tn I've been reading posts in here and it seems alot of people are/were addicted to vicoden/lortab/norco and oxycontin, but I haven't read about anyone being addicted to dilaudid or oxymorphone. Are 2 drugs considered as addictive as oxycontin? I'm asking because my g/f's pain doctor might switch her from methadone to one of these. She doesnt abuse her methadone at all, she has no desire, but I have seen her take excessive amounts of oxycontin in the past. Thanks!

Avatar n tn Is taking 1mg of xanex to help she didn't know she was in trouble, how long would you expect the withdrawral to last would the aleve help.
Avatar n tn What are the long term effects physically from taking pain meds? A Dr. told me the other day i should be taking florafiber along with the pain meds. Anyone know why?
Avatar m tn I have been taking 20 mg a day of oxymorphone for the last 10 weeks.I went through withdrawls on this stuff one other time and it was horrible.I was abusing it and other drugs at the time.This time I have been taking it in the prescribed amount.I want to get off of it but Im scared to death of going through the withdrawl nightmare again.Have I been taking a large enough dose of this stuff to cause withdrawls?
Avatar f tn do i still wait it out? and for how long? if not...should i try a different long acting before getting to into the opana ...heard u tolerate quick...which wouldn't matter if the plan is to continue... but...i think u get what i'm asking...gotta sum it up eventually, right lol. so lemme recap i can help u help me... - has anyone gotten headaches and felt drowsy on opana er? - does this possible side effect go away as your body adjusts like most side effects...OR.
Avatar f tn tim, how long you been clean? studio, thanks. does anyone have any suggestions for pain relief without hydro? trust me, ive tried everything. my mom, sister and grandmother all suffer from the same disease. my sister and mom said they'd rather be pill poppers than in pain everyday. i dunno what to do.
Avatar n tn You're on a low but consistent dose so you'll probably have some withdrawal symptoms if you quit cold turkey, but it shouldn't last too long. Fix a taper plan in your mind and stick to it. Write it down and hand your meds over to someone you trust and have them follow the written dosing plan. Expect to feel more anxiety. That's part of withdrawal but like the other symptoms it doesn't last forever. If you haven't talked to your doctor about getting off the vicodin, do it!
1337431 tn?1280959499 What kind of pain do you have and have any non-opiate modalities been tried? How long have you had chronic pain? Have you ever tried seeing a pain psychologist? Opiates are not the be-all and end-all of chronic pain treatment. They are merely one tool in your pain toolbox. There is not one person with CP who can say they have NO pain. The goal is to help patients better manage their pain because it's usually impossible to achieve complete remission.
566544 tn?1219441277 Since I've been on opiates nearly non-stop for 11 years, and the last time I weaned off was 7 years ago, I could be completely wrong. But I have to try something while I wait for a response from my doctor. Thanks!
1264863 tn?1391121793 Mine does, but it is a royal pain. I'm on two meds. If my doctor does not write the prescription exactly how they want they will send one and not the other, not call me and then I still end up having to go to my doctor every month anyway. I get my pain meds from my PCP. But, he is advised on my meds by a pain management Center that is in California where I get most of my medical care. So it is not quite as strict for me as it is with some of you who go to pain management centers only.
Avatar m tn I take 40mg of MSContin (long lasting) every 12 hours but it does nothing for my pain - never has even after a Hysterectomy with a Morohine pump in 2001. I'd like to ask my Dr. about this, but if it's the same need to I guess. Message me if you'd like.
Avatar m tn 5 mg of Hydrocodone (vicodin) taken 3-4 times daily and @ 6 NSAIDS total daily. I am very very very strict with how much I take- never more than a full 5mg when it's bad. My job has me dealing with the criminal public and I see every day how easy addiction can take over a life, so I have been sooooo careful to take just enough to dull the pain but not give me a high. After 5 yrs of scripts from my Ortho doc I was unceremoniously cut off and was told I had to go to PM for any more narcotic meds.
Avatar f tn I'm hoping some of our other members will be able to tell you how these two medications compare to each other and how long it takes the Oxymorphone to start working. I just did some research and it looks like you should be able to take a break through medication on top of the Oxymorphone.Talk to your Dr about this because if this is true and you can take a break through medication while you're waiting for the new med to start working then this might be the answer.
981443 tn?1250119402 Trying to find out how long I can expect this to last... 2 weeks, 3 weeks, more? My doctors office acts perplexed that I am still having symptoms, is there such a thing as being highly dependent on a drug? What can I do to speed up the process? I was on this drug for 18 months prior to neck surgery, I can't imagine how they thought I'd be fully weaned in 10 days with no symptoms.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn im off pills bow, i weaned myself of during the two weeks of using the opanas(oxymorphone) ... im just curious how high you guys yhibk the chances sree of my child having some kind of birth defect is? ... like i said i used every day, but it definitely wasnt as heace of a usage as it couldve been or as ive been before... good advice only ..please no hurtful comments... i know it was selfish and wrong but i did the right thing and got off of them ...
Avatar f tn I have been off the smack for two months and am coming off the buprenorphine tomorrow. Does anyone know how long it takes to exit your system cause I have taken it 3 days more than I was told and finished today.Tomorrow I have a urine test where they look for things like that. Will it still be in my urine?How long does it take to exit? If your wandering why I'm coming off so fast its because I'm going overseas and I need the ok from the doctor. He thinks I stopped three days ago.
29837 tn?1414538248 Taken Oxycodone 30mg for about a month now. Does hardly anything to quell the enormous back pain I have. Can crushing it and drinking it with apple juice make a difference? Will it work faster?
Avatar n tn Given that you can tolerate oxycodone, which metabolizes into oxymorphone, tells me you can probably also tolerate oxymorphone in immediate release form??? Switching from oxycodone to oxymorphone 6x per day, might reduce your BT pain without the need of an additional opioid. But, I am not sure if you have tried Opana yet or not. You could also continue to use oxycodone for BT pain (just in case) or the fentanyl Actiq lollipops.
Avatar f tn I've been on the Duragesic 100 for almost 18 years. I've had 3 cervical fusions & 1 lumbar laminectomy. The Duragesic 100 has controlled my constant, chronic pain & while I've never been pain free, the Duragesic certainty helped. However in the last 2 months, its as if the patches are no longer working. I've always had additional breakthrough meds, but now its as if I'm going through withdrawals. I've tried changing to different boxes of Duragesic but that hasn't helped.
Avatar n tn Hey .. what is Opana? I know its new, but what are you taking it for and how long have you been doing the pain mgmt? So, what did the new dr say about all this? Some dr's just don't have any bedside manner .. i can't believe he would say that to you ... i probably would of knocked him on is, you know what ...
Avatar n tn If only they truly knew what they are doing to people that truly have the need for this relief and the records to back it up.....I wonder how long it would take them to reach for that capsule and thank God for the relief it does bring to someone who can't even walk without it. Talk to u soon as I will let u know what happens from here. I hope I am just being overly concerned....
1855076 tn?1337118903 It is oxymorphone. I plan to take my first dose tomorrow morning and I'll let you know how well it works for me. Maybe that is a medicine you could ask your doctor about. It actually says on the company website that it lasts a true 12 hours versus 8 hours like morphine and oxycontin. It has some new TIMERx technology built into it. I agree that the volteran gel is only one piece to the puzzle. I know it wouldn't be working as well if I weren't taking opioid medications.
Avatar f tn THe only thing I don't like with that is that, for me, anyway, it doesn't last long. The morphine I have to say does last a long time. I'm just sort of venting and looking for ideas of a pain med that has the lasting ability of the morphine but works as well as the oxycodone. And I'd prefer to not go on any long-lasting medications if possible.
