Oxycodone oxymorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone oxymorphone


Avatar m tn 1mg of oxymorphone is equal to about 2mg of oxycodone 1mg of oxycodone is equal to about .5 mg of oxymorphone Oxycodone 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.
Avatar n tn My dr took me off 30mg oxycodone ir and replaced it with 10mg opana ir, because my tolerance to oxycodone was too high. I have been on opana a few days now, and I am doinh pretty well (none of these meds completely relieve my back pain even after several surgeries) but I would say trust in your dr, and if what he is doing doesnt help, let him know as soon as you can.
1855076 tn?1337118903 I've read about Opana ER and see it's oxymorphone. I know hydrocodone is Vicodin and oxycodone is Percocet without the Tylenol. What is oxymorphone? I had been given Dilaudid after a surgery and it did nothing. I've put a call into my doctor's office. I see her in two weeks but I don't think I can make it two weeks the way I am now. We've got the winter looming, and it's always my worst time of year. The holidays are coming and I want to feel okay.
Avatar f tn I am going through serious withdrawal. I suffer chronic back and hip pain and my doctor can't seem to find the source of the pain. So I started to medicate myself. I started off with oxy 30s. then I started dating a guy who also is in chronic pain and when I would start getting "sick" from not being able to get the 30s he gave he some of his oxymorphone, opana, and I don't want to continue taking his meds anymore.
Avatar f tn You've asked a good question and although it may seem straight forward there's a lot to be considered. Oxymorphone is seven times stronger then morphine while hydromorphone is five times stronger than morphine. They are in the same synthetic family of drugs. Although on "paper" Oxymorphone is more potent then Hydromorphone that doesn't necessarily mean that one is more effective then the other. Pain management is individualized.
Avatar m tn I flushed my pills yesterday morning and got on 5mg oxycodone from my doc to continue my taper. I don't think it's helping. I got some sleep with the help of Clonodine, but I feel awful anyhow. I'm angry, grouchy, and just want to be left alone, which is not possible here. I'm about to try a shower to see if that helps any. I can't believe I let this happen to myself. I thought I was smarter than that. Good lord. I know the worst is yet to come too.
Avatar f tn oxymorphone is an active metabolite of oxycodone. noroxycodone is an inactive metabolite (it has no analgesic properties). From the following: http://www.practicalpainmanagement.com/treatments/pharmacological/opioids/oxycodone-oxymorphone-metabolism "Oxycodone is metabolized in part by cytochrome P450 2D6 to oxymorphone, which represents less than 15% of the total administered dose.
Avatar f tn Oxycodone is metabolized by the liver into oxymorphone. Oxymorphone is about 2 times stronger than oxycodone based on pharmacology. When I was first switched to Opana, the drowsiness and tiredness were unreal! It was a real struggle for me at first and I also have a desk job. However, the sedation effects only lasted for a month at the most. Now I don't get sedated anymore and in fact I am more alert than I was on Morphine.
Avatar m tn I have been searching for help stopping opana use I started seeing a pain management Dr since moving from the North East to Oconee county SC I have full insurance I am on SSDI but since moving here I have found the state is the worse when seeking help it's anti class 2 on everything including the medication I need for my main disability that med has never been a issue but since finding out my back pain is due to sciatica I started back up on oxymorphone/opana now my insurance took it off the lis
Avatar f tn Oxycodone to morphine to hydromorphine to fentanyl to methadone to oxymorphone to morphine to oxycodone to hydromorphine, round and round. Oxycodone is no longer effective for me after a month or two. Talk about tolerance -- mine is amazing. Until oral fentanyl is approved for non-cancer use, I can't use that one anymore either -- I require too many patches. So, I've got a pool of four medications to use for pain, and every year or two, I change partners.
917008 tn?1251227579 I have used all 3 before but mainly oxy, however if I was ever able to get some opana or dilaudid I would not pass up that 'opportunity'. If I had as easy access to hydromorphone or oxymorphone as I do to oxycodone, I would have stopped using oxycodone in favor of either of the 2.
Avatar n tn oxymorphone is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone. 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.
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 m tn It all started with 10 mg percocet and has gradually escalated to about 120-180 mg of oxycodone per day. I have quit taking percocet at will in the past, cold turkey multiple times in the past. My fiance left me in February of this year (probably the right decision on her part). But when she left i had been about a week sober from all drugs thanks to her support. Ever since then Ive been in a downward spiral trying to numb my pain with pain killers.
Avatar f tn I posted on your other post and I feel your pain because like I said I was on the same meds at the end of my active addiction and not even suboxone would knock the edge off of withdrawal from opana and I didn't even know there was a drug strong enough that suboxone wouldn't help but I found out the hard way oxymorphone is nothing to play with and I was crushing 40mg extended release up and snorting 6-9 of them a day on top of the oxy I was also taking way to much of.
Avatar m tn Hey all, I've been addicted to oxycodone since age 14. I'm age 27 now and ready to put this behind me. I've lost everything because of it. I've lost my family, friends, multiple good jobs, lost my good credit, and it all of a sudden dawned on me that I'm an addict and its the source of my problems. I'm gonna call a methadone/sub clinic Monday. I do have chronic pain, I was shot with a 12 gauge shotgun in july 2011 and it really messed me up. Do you think a Dr.
Avatar f tn Therefore, 5 mg of oxycodone is about 16 mg of hydrocodone so oxycodone is about 3 times stronger than hydrocodone. However, geminigirl is right in that everyone is different. I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa. For me, percocet works a lot better for my pain. Hydrocodone does not come without acetaminophen...yet. There is a drug in development called, Zohydro that would be a long-acting form of hydrocodone without acetaminophen.
Avatar m tn With GC/MS or LC/MS testing, Hydrocodone may show metabolites of Hydromorphone but it shouldn't read as Oxycodone. Oxycodone may metabolite to Oxymorphone but should never read as Hydrocodone. GC/MS or LC/MS is the most accurate of the UDTs. Immunoassay is the least accurate and therefore ill advised in PM Clinics beyond a yes or no to opiates present. Has the PMP said anymore than the results of your mom's UDT? I wish I could explain these tests in more detail.
Avatar n tn With a nod toward the concerns listed in the earlier posts, the closest thing to oxycodone available is oxymorphone, which is sold as Opana and Opana ER. It is exactly twice the potency of oxycodone; I actually prefer it for treatment of pain in the cases that an opiate is required because the ER formulation, at least in my experience, seems to be a 'true 12 hour med' whereas patients sometimes come up short on oxycontin when it is dosed twice per day.
Avatar n tn Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew the differences between Oxycodone and Tylenol w/Codeine?? I know they both have acetomenophen. But, the Tylenol with Codeine has Codeine obviously. I was taking the one with 30mg. of codeine. Now I have Oxycodone 7.5-325. What is the opiad in this drug? Is it also codeine, or a different drug? I know my body's reaction to the T3, so I am a little nervous to try this new one....oxycodone. Is it stronger, not as strong, the same???
Avatar n tn What is the accurate opiate equivalence of Darvocet-N 100 in terms of Oxymorphone, Hydrocodone or Morphine?
Avatar n tn alprozolam 39 ug/L oxymorphone 60 ug/L sertraline 460 ug/l oxycodone can these meds all taken together cause death?and can you tell me how much mg each pill is?thanks.
199177 tn?1490502134 Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
Avatar n tn Just wondering if anyone has any info on the differences between Opana which is Oxymorphone and Oxycodone? My PM Dr. wants to switch me from high doses of Oxycodone to some form of oxymorphone. Just want to know if anyone has taken them both and know what I should expect from this switch? Good or Bad idea? Just curious because the hundreds of mg's I've been taking of Oxycodone over the years has made me build up an unreal tolerance for the drug.
Avatar m tn I recently was given a drug mouth swab by my physician and tested positive for the following; oxycodone 153.3ng, oxymorphone 38.9 ng, tramadol was greater than 8000 ng. i take the following meds; opana er, citalipram, trazadone and atarax for sleep. how did the oxycodone and tramadol test positive? my doc will no longer prescribe the opana because of the other drugs in my system. plz help me understand it seems like a great amt of tramadol and im worried as to how it got in my system.
Avatar n tn I was on this medication from Jan-Apr of this year at 30 mg bid (i.e., twice a day). 5 mg of Opana ER is equivalent to 10 mg of oxycodone. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Percocet. I don't know how many 5/325 mg Percocets you were taking a day before switching to the Opana ER 5 mg, but to have equivalent pain relief from the Opana ER, you had to have taken only 2 Percocets a day.
Avatar m tn 1. oxycodone 2. noroxycodone 3. oxymorphone Perhaps your doctor said oxymorphine, instead of morphine? There are no drug interactions that would cause the presence of morphine in your urine. Codeine may cause a false positive result for morphine. Have you been prescribed any Tylenol #3 by a dentist? Some immunoassay-based tests with cause false positive result for morphine after eating foods rich in poppy seeds.
Avatar f tn I bet a semi synthetic like oxycodone would be the best, maybe oxymorphone? Maybe if I make the poppy seed tea into a resin to take as a pill, that might help. However, I am not going to do that because it would get expensive and might be becoming illegal. However poppy seed tea remains legal. Hopefully a doctor can help.
Avatar f tn NOT oxymorphone dear, oxycodone. Oxycontin has the sole active ingredient oxycodone, Perocet has both oxycodone and acetaminophen...hence the "cet" suffix. Theres also Percoden which is oxycodone and asprin. Oxymorphone is a totally different drug 2x the strenth of oxycodone.
Avatar n tn I am perscribed 5mg oxycodone 1-2 tablets per day up to six a day what is an acceptable drug urine screen for this amount? mine was as follows Oxycodone 261 H < 50 ng/mL Oxymorphone 658 H < 50 ng/mL....
