Oxymorphone mg

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone mg


1855076 tn?1337118903 I'm taking oxycodone 10 mg. every 4 hours. I essentially get about an hour to 1.5 hours of okay pain relief but then it's right back to being beyond awful. In the past I had used oxycontin, though I forget the dose. I used to take it twice a day with 15 mg oxycodone for BT pain. Then they tried the Fentanyl, which wasn't a good fit for my body. I got to the point of being so tired of all these meds and switching, I thought I'd try coming off and reevaluating things.
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 f tn My mother has been on pain killers for the past 5 years, they started her at 500Mg of vicodin, to 1000 of vicodin, to Lortab, then to norcos, now to Oxy-morphone, a RX called "Opana ER". Ever since she got these, I would take them, I started out taking some vicodin here and there, to a full on addiction to the Opana ER, over time of course. My tolerance is so high, I take the same dosage she does daily, which is 4-5 20MG tablets a day. I need them just to feel normal. I have no pain.
Avatar f tn Soon my doctor went to prescribing me 8 Opana (oxymorphone) 10 mg a day. This was the beginning of the worst time in my life. I literally am scared out of my mind of running out because I'm frightened I will die... these withdrawals make me feel like my life is ending. I am moving soon to a different city and recently broke up with my boyfriend of 3+ years and this has caused me a great depression. I feel like my entire life has ended because everything I have grown to know is now over.

Avatar m tn Also took 20 more mg of lope. My stomach hurts like heck. Wife is trying to force me to eat some chicken noodle soup. I can't believe I feel this bad when I'm using another opiate to detox. I underestimated the strength if Opana. FWIW, I found a pill on the garage floor. I thought about snorting it, then ran inside and flushed it before I could think about it more. Sites like bluelight have a ton of info on Opana, and none of its good unless you like being really high.
Avatar n tn I am now on medicare and anthem blue cross will only provide me with a 30 day supply. The reason given is that oxymorphone HCL ER 7.5 MG TAB is not on their formulary. Without the insurance this medication cost $300.00. I take it 2 x a day and it is very addictive. I did think that we/they understood that using blue cross was an option only if this drug was covered. What to do?.... In continuing, it seems I've come to the wrong site.
Avatar f tn Was on Tramadol for the past 7 months, up to 400mg a day for severe neck/back injury/pain due to a car accident 8 months ago. My pain management doc gave me this Oxymorphone 5mg. up to 3 times daily yesterday. Doc said try this, but if that doesn't work, its epidural cervical injections and possible surgery. I'm worried about addiction now, w/ all these pills they throw at me.
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 n tn You can even develop hypersensitivity reactions to other phenanthrene derivative opioid agonists ( hydrocodone (hycodan 1mg), hydromorphone, levorphanol, oxycodone, oxymorphone). Another precipitating factor is they are known to release histamine which can further precipitate the allergy. Subsequent exposure can be life threatening. Hence, future exposure to such drugs should be avoided and I advise you to avoid Hycodan. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn i am on 30 mg opana er and 5 mg opana. they are good, but they have been causing severe drowsiness so much that i have been nodding off at work, and have been asked to take a medical leave of absence. Now I dont know what to do they don't want me to come back till i'm drug free, but i have chronic back pain.. i cannot work w/out pain med..its too much pain to handle...right now im seeing about getting a spinal cord stimulator put in..
459155 tn?1264011742 30-40 mgs PO/ 10 mg IV Dilaudid........7.5 mg Opana/Oxymorphone........10 mg Oxycodone....20 mg Hydrocodone…30 mg Codeine.........200 mg Methadone..….15 - 20 mg Demerol...........300 mg Darvacet...........200 mg just an approximation as everyone metabolizes drugs differently...8 mg would cover or equal approximately 210 mg hydro habit a day, 160 mg oxycodone habit, or 100 mg a day methadone habit....
Avatar f tn I’ve been taking 5mg oxymorphone extended release pills for 8 years. I recently had to switch primary care doctors because mine moved away. The first urine drug test I was asked to do was last Friday and they called today and said the drug didn’t show up in my system, and dropped me as a patient. I should start withdrawals tomorrow & I’m scared out of my mind. I’ve never failed a drug test, asked for an early refill, nothing like that.
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 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 Opana is oxymorphone, which is similar to morphine. So a 40 mg dose is stronger than a 20 mg dose. Also, Opana is extended release and is usually used for chronic pain where round the clock opioid treatment is required over an extended period. However, please do not self medicate and take the medication as prescribed by your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn My disease has resurfaced with this Opana though.I have cut my intake from 20 mg a day to 10 mg a day for the past three days.I have been blessed to avoid the terrible sickness of opiate withdrawl that I went through last year with this **** when I went CT off of it.Still the mental side of it is a bear.I know 20 mg a day doesnt sound like much but Opana is some POTENT stuff.Anywho a couple of you encouraged me to keep you informed so thats whats up.Pray for me!
981443 tn?1250119402 Opana ER, an extended-release form of oxymorphone, is available as tablets in strengths of 5 mg, 7½ mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, and 40 mg. Some resources assert that 2, 12 and/or 15 mg IR tablets and 25, 36 and 50 mg extended release tablets will be introduced although apparently the timeline on that is not known to the public at this time. Opana Extended-Release tablets are based on the TIMERx system developed by a consortium led by Endo and Penwest.
Avatar f tn I am currently prescribed morphine sulfate 30 mg and morphine 100 mg. I recently took a drug test where Oxymorephone showed up in my urine test. Does either of these pills contain the components of oxymorphone or opana? Any help will be appreciated!
Avatar m tn I am taking opana er 10 mg. 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.
Avatar m tn 30 mg x 2 tablets/dose = 60 mg per dose of oxymorphone 60 mg x 3 times daily = 180 mg per day of oxymorphone When converting oxymorphone to morphine, it is about 1:3 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 n tn Also what is the difference between Opana ER and oxymorphone? I think it is oxymorphone is not extended release but the Opana is. I have had my spine reconstructed 6 times and suffer more than words can say. I do not abuse my drugs but the Oxycotin don't seem to work as well since they changed to the OP and they make me nauseated a lot. And I DO take them as prescribed. I did not crush/chew/snort/smoke or inject the other oxycotin. Just swallowed it as prescribed.
Avatar n tn Opana ER is stronger than oxycodone mg to mg. For example, 1 mg of oxymorphone is stronger than 1 mg of oxycodone...to be precise, oxymorphone is approx. 2 times stronger than oxycodone. Therefore, to get equivalent strength of oxymorphone through oxycodone, one has to take their oxymorphone dosage and multiply it by 2 to yield equivalent oxycodone dosing in mgs.
Avatar f tn He went to the hospital and is ok- htank God. He was taking 10 mg oxycodone ER. Does that mean that he got 10 mg of oxycodone all at one time? Would that not be the same thing as taking two 5mg percs?
Avatar n tn Oxycodone is about half as strong as Oxymorphone per mg. So you were talking 60mg of Oxycontin (Oxycodone) and going by a Opioid (Narcotic) analgesic converter you would need 30mg of Opana (Oxymorphone) to get the same pain releif and most likley the same to cover the withdrawl. You are now taking 10mg of Opana where 30mgs is what the converter says you need. You need to talk to your Dr. about dosage and don't take more than your Dr wrote the Opana for until he or she OKs it.
Avatar m tn my pain management wants to take me off and gave me 60 mg ER Opana instead..I think its either withdrawal(never had) or medication reaction. Is this safe? I am trying to follow directions but I feel like I'm going crazy. I'm an educator and had to take the week off until I can see the doctor. Any ideas?
