Oxymorphone name brand

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone name brand


1855076 tn?1337118903 I have a hard time remembering what each medicine is, generic name versus brand names. I'm once again having a hard time controlling the pain. I have come down to a very small dose and I haven't been using anything long acting. My goal was to see if I could manage on nothing or very little and it's very clear that my quality of life is nonexistent on such a low dose. I'm taking oxycodone 10 mg. every 4 hours. I essentially get about an hour to 1.
Avatar f tn If you took a cheap, store brand aspirin tablet and an expensive, brand name one, and put both in 2 separate glasses of water. The brand name will probably dissolve within seconds, which is what you want, since aspirin is very acidic. But many generics will just sit there....barely dissolving at all. The side of that water glass could be your stomach, and the cheap aspirin will be eating a hole in the lining, or at the very least, causing irritation. Another example: Thyroid meds.
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 n tn I'd never hear of the brand-name Opana before, but I can tell you the big difference between oxy's and dilaudid ... Oxycodone -- the opioid in Percocet/dan and Oxycontin, is derived from a part of the opium moleculed called thebaine -- that's why it gives you that "lift," hardly anyone with no knowledge of these drugs would expect. Many oxy addicts take so much of the stuff, they need to take a few benzos to sleep.
981443 tn?1250119402 Depending on the individual patient, it can be either more or less nausea- and vomit-inducing than morphine. The brand name Numorphan is derived by analogy to the Nucodan name for an oxycodone product (or vice versa) as well as Paramorphan/Paramorfan for dihydromorphine and Paracodin (dihydrocodeine). The only commercially available salt of oxymorphone in most of the world at this time is the hydrochloride, which has a free base conversion ratio of 0.891.
Avatar m tn Your doctor specifically said "Opana ER"??? That's a bit odd. Opana is just the brand-name for Oxymorphone, and the ER just means "extended release" (as opposed to the IR, "instant release"). A doctor telling you that you tested positive for Opana ER would be like telling someone that they tested positive for Norco 10/325. Drug screens/tests just aren't specific enough to determine brand-names of drugs, let alone whether it's the ER or IR version of the drug.
Avatar n tn Now the 320 mgs isnt helping her pain either so there has been mention that they are going to switch her methadone to oxymorphone (opana brand name) but first they want to switch her 7 norcos a day (break thru med) to percocets instead and then will work on switching her to oxymorphone. At least that is what the plan is now, but it could change. Im hoping that she will have no desire to do more and more of the oxymorphone.
Avatar m tn I know someone who is on that, and the crush-resistant brand name ones actually work BETTER than the generic ones.
Avatar n tn Endo brought it to the U.S. market in 1959 under the brand name Numorphan . Endo withdrew the original Numorphan tablets from the market in 1972 as the result of regulatory and market pressures and other considerations as it was passionately sought, by any means necessary, by some narcotics addicts. Endo brought it back to the market in 2006 to compete against Oxycontin. Oxymorphone was the drug of choice in the movie Drugstore Cowboy, Matt Damin and his gang called them "Blues".
Avatar f tn Keep with them. Suggesting Tramadol also or long acting ULTRAM (brand name) They seem to work VERY well as well. Good luck!
648944 tn?1241473294 It is basically similar to Morphine, which doesn't work well for me. Opana is a brand name for Oxymorphone like Vicodin or Lortab is for hydrocodone. Of course there is acetaminophen in the Vicodin & Lortab along with the hydrocodone. Oxymorphone is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. It is similar to morphine. Oxymorphone is used to treat moderate to severe pain. The extended-release form of this medication is for around-the-clock treatment of pain.
535089 tn?1400677119 The affected opioid drugs include long-acting and extended-release brand name and generic products and are formulated with the active ingredients fentanyl, hydromorphone, methadone, morphine, oxycodone, and oxymorphone. Under the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA) (Public Law 110-85), FDA has the authority to require persons submitting certain drug approval applications to submit a proposed REMS as part of the application.
1855076 tn?1337118903 Opana ER is oxymorphone in extended release form. Oxymorphone is a completely different opioid than morphine. It is about 3 times stronger than morphine and 2 times stronger than oxycodone in pill form. A portion of a dose of Oxycodone is metabolized into Oxymorphone by the liver...similar to how codeine is metabolized into morphine by the liver.
Avatar f tn - MS Contin (Extended Release Morphine), - Nucynta ER (ER Nucynta) - Ultram ER (ER Tramadol, brand) - Opana ER (Extended Release Oxymorphone) - OxyContin (Extended Release Oxycodone) - Exalgo (ER Dilaudid) - BuTrans Patch (ER Buprenephrine) - Fentanyl Patch (ER Fentanyl) MS Contin, Opana ER, and OxyContin are typically prescribed 2-3 times per day or every 8 to 12 hours. Exalgo is prescribed every 24 hours. The BuTrans patch last 7 days and the Fentanyl patch lasts 48-72 hours.
541953 tn?1262589826 I tried to google and got nothing. I was just wondering if this is just a different brand name for morphine but stronger? thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar f tn Im an addict+thought tapering was just a slow,drawn out w/d+I honestly couldnt do it also w/c/t the w/d was much faster.I used name brand immodium,clonidine,benzos n as small dose as possible.Then I weaned off the xanax(was taking6-8mg daily4years so thats awful slow.w/d)..I think the amino acid protocal,thomas recipe items+clonidine will b enough.Dont trade this4another addiction(I wouldnt do methadone,suboxine,subutex etc.)THERE A MILLION TIMES WORSE2COME OFF OF.
Avatar f tn Be careful of any Dr. who would do this....you may find them shut down by the DEA one day and then your name/records are tied to him... It's actually surprising that he put you on both Oxycontin and Fentanyl...Most Dr.s stick with only one long acting medication and then add in a short acting one for breakthrough pain... Same with your insurance....you are very lucky that they are ok with paying for both...Again...you just need to be careful...
Avatar f tn subutex is straight buprenorphine instead of the bupe w/ naloxone, that is primarily used for the first few days of treatment furing detox, but in Europe buprenorphine has reached an epidemic especially in france where the brand name temgesic(buprenorphine) is shot uo or taken other ways and kids get high..it is a good med for pain control and also great for recovery froom any severity of addiction..
Avatar f tn I was switched from morphine to Opana (which is oxymorphone). Morphine and oxymorphone are totally different opioids. They aren't interrelated in any way. Oxymorphone is extremely potent and is 3 times as strong morphine when taken orally. I would like to know what your dose was of the oxymorphone was when you were taking it (or are you still taking Opana/oxymorphone?).
Avatar n tn Percocets (oxycodone) verses Norco (hydrocodone). Percocet (name brand) is oxycodone. Yes! It is stronger than Norco. It is a schedule 2 narcotic. You CAN NOT get refills on a schedule 2 drug. (Ask your pharmacy). Both meds are of the opiate class. And very dangerous. But you should not post things on here that are so far from correct that if someone read them that didnt know, could take your opinion as truth. that is a bad thing...so to all persons reading this. PLEASE CONSULT WITH (A) DOCTOR.
Avatar f tn Opioids don't work well for nerve pain, which a good portion of your pain is nerve pain due to the pinched nerve in your spine. Gabapentin (brand name Neurontin), Lyrica, and Cymbalta are great meds to treat nerve pain. The starter dose for Gabapentin is 900 mg a day and the max dose is 3600 mg per day so if you tried it before and it didn't work, it could be that the dose was not therapeutic.

Avatar n tn Celebrex Generic Name: Celecoxib Drug Class: NSAID / Specific Cox-2 Inhibitors. Rx Report: http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/coxib_ad.htm Comment1: “Celebrex was worthless. As a pain killer, it is less effective than tylenol. This is based on both personal experience, family experience (my brother is in a lot more pain than me, and had the worst year of his life on Celebrex), and finally, via a Celebrex sales slime.
Avatar n tn I think it says Endo and 502 or something like that. Dupont doesn't make them anymore. I know when I was doing the percs that I liked the name brand, of course. I also like roxicet and roxilox (roxane's tylox). They seemed no less potent. Endocets sucked, in my opinion. They did seem weaker.
Avatar m tn it is very strong and the brand name most commonly used is opana or opana er, which is the extended release version of it. i took it a few times during my period of heavy addiciton and for me it was similiar to snorted oxycontin about a 20 mg line and the high lasted for about 5 hours. Most people that end up addicted to it through legitimate prescriptions for severe pain, it is rarely found on the black market.
1331804 tn?1336870958 The retail price is $670 for a 30 day supply and my insurance only pays 1/2 because it is a non-preferred brand name drug. Oxycontin is actually a preferred brand name drug so it is much cheaper than the Opana ER. But, I could take two 15 mg Opana tablets in the morning and one 15 mg Opana ER tablet at night and that would cost a $10 copay for a 30 supply.
Avatar f tn Other medications may be causing this exacerbation as well. The manufacturer of Duragesic (Brand Name for fentanyl and manufactured for: PriCare, Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen) are actually now manufactured by ALZA Corporation, Vacaville, CA. This particular brand name achieves far better consistent pain relief response than the generics. On rare occurrence, will this brand name fall off. Should this occur, apply first aid tape only to the edges of the patch.
542867 tn?1214176229 Yes it is purchased otc and generic works just as well as name brand
460948 tn?1232305722 Generic versions of Roxicodone may differ in color from the brand name tablets. OxyContin was briefly available in: 5 (white), 10 (white), 15 (pink), 20 (pink), 30 (yellow), 40 (yellow), 45 (yellow), 60 (beige), 80 (green) and 160 (blue) mg tablets.[6] (although note that not all of these dosages are marketed in the USA) and, due to its sustained-release mechanism, is effective for eight to twelve hours.
