Common Questions and Answers about Opana er extended-release tablet 30 mg


1895503 tn?1332376974 Hi Family, I am down to 10mg Opana ER (extended release in two 5 mg. pills) plus four 5 mg Opana IR (immediate release) pills per day. I am struggling to decrease from 10 mg to 5 mg because the jump is 50%! It is too great of a jump. It causes my pain and my anxiety to get out-of-control. I need to change to another opiate that is easier to taper on. I need a pill I can cut, and Opana ER cannot be cut. I hope to taper my medicine.
1331804 tn?1336870958 And while I still think taking two 30 mg Opana ER tabs twice a day is too much, taking one 30 mg Opana ER tablet during the day makes sense to me now. I take 75% of my total meds during the day when I am awake and I take the other 25% at night before bedtime. So, I plan to discuss this with my doctor tomorrow afternoon. Perhaps taking one 30 mg Opana ER tablet during the day and one 10 or 15 mg Opana ER tablet at night before bedtime is the right way to go.
Avatar n tn but i did look up opana and i thought it said it also came in 20mg and 40 mgs....BUT...the few pages i read said opana er (extended release) so i dont know if that is the ONLY way it comes (er), or the other also...
Avatar n tn Your mom needs to ask if the can give her a extended release (Opana, Oxycotin ER) to go along with the short acting ones.
2110255 tn?1334192149 pain that occurs outside of the control of my long acting opioid medication, Opana ER (12 hour extended release oxymorphone). Breakthrough pain may not occur everyday as for the most part long acting opioid medications do work as they are supposed to. Percocet is a short acting opioid medication that is used a lot for acute pain...pain after surgery or for a short duration until an injury has healed.
Avatar f tn Excuse me, but all the information that I provided above is accurate. I would love for you to highlight specific information in my posts that you feel is inaccurate and let us talk about the reasons why you believe it is inaccurate. I provided the same strength comparison information that you reiterated in your post. And, I did not promote for them to switch to Opana ER (i.e., oxymorphone) - instead I stated that was simply what I was taking for my pain.
Avatar f tn Many PM doctors want their patients that have chronic pain on an extended release medication as the euphoria is much less or nonexistant on ER medications; whereas, short-acting medications peak very quickly in the bloodstream which can cause a strong sense of wellbeing or euphoria that many doctors believe are at the root of addiction/abuse of prescription pain killers. However, this is not true in most cases but many doctors are convinced of just the opposite.
Avatar n tn Oxymorphone 10 mg Hydrocodone 20 mg Oxycodone 20 mg Methadone b 20 mg Morphine 30 mg here is a chart i found...it may be hard to understand the way it pasted but it means that just 10mg of opana is equal to 20mg of hydrocodone,= to 20mgs of oxycodone,= to20 mgs of methadone b and also = to 30mgs of morphine....it sounds like some rugged ****, like maybe you arent going to even miss the methadone or oxys...but i am not a pharmacist, so do some research of your own to be safe...
Avatar n tn I have had four epedural injections in the past year still without relief. I've been taking 30 Vicodin HPs a week for a year now, but I am still suffering and I am finding it difficult to concentrate after taking Vicodin. I want to stop taking Vicodin before I become more dependant on it than I already am. My Dr. has suggested switching to Ultram in the past. Some pharmacist say that Ultram is addictive while others say it is not.
Avatar n tn It seems as if my life will never be the same prior to the car accident 3/14/06. I am on oxycodon 350 mg, Zanaflex 4 mg, and Lyrica 150 mg. I feel everyones pain. I am glad I found this site seems that I am not alone. God Bless everyone.....
