Oxymorphone overdose symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone overdose symptoms


Avatar f tn The night he died he drank a few beers and took some oxymorphone. We thought for weeks he died of an accidental overdose. However, when the results of the autopsy came back it said he died of natural causes due to an enlarged heart. The doctor said his heart was twice the size of an average heart. He was 21 years old and very active. He was not overweight & worked as a roofer outside all day. I would really appreciate if this could be explained to me in greater detail.
2054191 tn?1330457221 Morphine is lower in strength than Oxycodone but Oxymorphone is the strongest pain medicine available in pill form. The next tier up from Oxymorphone is Fentanyl. Even with taking 36 norcos a day, you are not opioid tolerant enough for oxymorphone or fentanyl. You need to be on 60 mg of morphine a day consistently for at least 1-2 weeks before switching to oxymorphone or fentanyl. There is also Dilaudid which is slightly weaker than oxymorphone.
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?).
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 m tn I'm currently taking 12 30mg Oxycodone IR pills at once and I do this every four hours. I also plug 60 mg of Opana (Oxymorphone). My family doesn't even think I'm on meds anymore because it appears as if I'm not on anything until I try going off. I am seriously petrified and am not exaggerating the dosage I'm taking. I take about 1000 30 mg Roxicodone a month with 240 Opana IR & 240 Opana ER 40 mg. Oxymorphone.
Avatar f tn Schedule II opioid substances, which include hydromorphone, morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl, oxymorphone, and methadone, have the highest potential for abuse and risk of fatal overdose due to respiratory depression.
1331804 tn?1336870958 The Opana (oxymorphone) is a much stronger medication than morphine and percocet. I talked to my pharmacist and he thought the titration was very high and suggested that I call the ER to get a more definitive answer. He said in opioid resistant patients (like myself), I would probably be okay. He asked if I would have family members around to monitor me tomorrow when I take my first dose and I do. My husband and son will be here tomorrow.
Avatar n tn even if you take pain meds the way they are prescribed, you will become addicted. you can experience withdrawal symptoms after two weeks of taking pain meds daily. of course, the longer you take them and the more you take, the worse withdrawal will be. i am also an addict myself. i started injecting pain meds. this is the easiest way to get hook and the hardest to withdrawal from. do not detox yourself.
Avatar n tn Methadone, Codeine, Morphine, Oxycodone, oxymorphone, Dihydrocodeine, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Dextromoramide(do you guys get that gear in USA,its a buzz)Fentanyl and Buprenorphine. spooky........
Avatar n tn From reading what is going on with your boss' daughter, I'm shocked that they have not addressed the problem and are treating symptoms for over 1.5 years. An opening in the skin, the largest organ of the body, especailly an organ of elimination and protection from germs/organisms/etc., is a serious medical condition. She should go to another doctor, such as a dermatologist, to address the original problem. After that, it would be possible to address any dependency or addiction issues.
Avatar f tn If you are using this type, it's important to NOT use a covering/adhesive that will coverthe entire patch - mainly because there is a very real chance of the area that holds the medication getting alittle tear in it as you're removing the patch, which could possibly release a fatal overdose of medication into your system.
Avatar n tn But, I was noticing signs now looking back of those of an overdose of methadone. I strongly feel I have been over dosed with the methadone now all along. Some days I would sleep till 3 or 4pm w/ no job rent dvds and smoke 2 packs a day. I wouldnt have noticed the nightmares then due to being over dosed. NOW.....Loss of appietite, loss of sexual interest. like I said the list goes on. The question is, why is it impotant to get to that level of 30-40 mgs before starting sub? What is Suboxone?
Avatar n tn Steve, Awhile ago I posted a question to you concerning my fluctuating pain levels cause me to have withdrawal symptoms several times a month. Your reply was to have my oxycodone switched to a longer lasting pain med to help with the withdrawal symptoms. My next appointment is comming up and I was wondering what pain meds are long acting so I can suggest some to my pain specialist.
Avatar n tn Now i have been home for 6 days and the withdrawal symptoms have come back hard and I am really suffering. What advice do you have?
Avatar n tn If you decide to quit get a medical detox or ask you doc for some clonopin to control some of the above symptoms. If not be ready for a week of pure hell. You won't be able to pull it off yourself without some support. AA sounds corny but find a group near you and go. Enough for now.
538697 tn?1218415082 Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
Avatar f tn If you stay clean for a while, your tolerance goes down, and a relapse can result in an overdose. It's important for the person to have some kind of support system other than parents, in NA or AA or whatever is available, people who know what she is going through and who she can be honest with, to help insure against a relapse and/or an overdose.
