Oxymorphone snorting

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone snorting


Avatar m tn For the past 7 months I've been snorting 8 to 10 ten mg pills a day. The withdraw is so horrible it's unbearable. Why is snorting so much more potent and the symptoms are so bad. I cut down to two a day to try and keep the sickness away. I recently got some 30mg oxycodones I take orally and for some reason I can go a whole day without being sick. I'm to the point that I believe I can totally stop now. How is this possible? I'm lost. Any answears would be very much appreciated.
Avatar m tn 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. The WD stories are really scary. I think the Clonodine and Klonopin are kicking in. May try to rest my huge self in the bathtub. It's comical trying to get in there, being 6'2".
Avatar n tn My daughter has been snorting heroin for 3 weeks. She desperately wants to get off but has been unable to taper herself off to get back on suboxone. What are the best ways to do this as an outpatient? What are the safest and most effective drugs to use?
Avatar n tn I've been reading posts in here and it seems alot of people are/were addicted to vicoden/lortab/norco and oxycontin, but I haven't read about anyone being addicted to dilaudid or oxymorphone. Are 2 drugs considered as addictive as oxycontin? I'm asking because my g/f's pain doctor might switch her from methadone to one of these. She doesnt abuse her methadone at all, she has no desire, but I have seen her take excessive amounts of oxycontin in the past. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Opana (oxymorphone) will show up on any standard, 8-panel or 10-panel drug screen, FOR SURE. Snorting is dangerous, as Vicki said above me... tell your friend to stop.
981443 tn?1250119402 Endo has been the major distributor of oxymorphone throughout the world and currently markets oxymorphone in the United States and elsewhere as Opana and Opana ER. Opana is available as 5 mg and 10 mg tablets; 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.
Avatar m tn not only did i go back to taking hydrocodone but i started taking more. i then moved to oxycodone , about 60-150mg i also take opana(oxymorphone) 40mg ER but i crush and snort them. when i was on here i took apprx. 12 10mg pills a day about 30mg at a time. now when i take 7 10mg pills i dont feel anything. is the increase in my tolerance going to vastly affect the withdrawal process in severity or length?
1128749 tn?1260567794 I am trying to come off of about 30-50mg of oxycodone a day. I've been snorting every pill I get for almost two years. If I want to start taking less and come off of this stuff is it better that I swallow it?
401095 tn?1351395370 and sub with a ceiling effect is a bit difficult to compare than others..route od use such as oral, snorting. shooting..chewing all come into play as well Conversion table other drugs equivalent to sub Jul 24, 2008 05:32PM - 5 comments #Pain Killer Equivalent Doses (Oral) 1.2mg.............Buprenorphine (Bupe) 200mg............Codeine (Tylenol 2, 3, 4, etc) 30-60mg.........Diacetylmorphine (Heroin) (orally it = morphine, IV/IM/insuffilated it's 2x as strong) 100mg............
Avatar n tn She also would take more and more of oxy when she was on it, but has no desire to do so with methadone. Does anyone know if hydromorphone (dilaudid) and oxymorphone (opana) have the same effects as methadone or oxy - in general, do they make you tired or hyper? I realize everyone is different, but would like your opinions if you used either one of these meds. Her doctor is thinking of switching her to either hydromorhone or oxymorphone. Are these considered drugs of choice?
Avatar n tn Also Dr's now like to prescribe opana (oxymorphone) because it has very little to none euphoric or high feelings unless abused like snorting,plugging etc! I take opana er 10mg 2-3 times a a day along with percocet 10/325 tablet 3x a day! The opana is for around the clock relief and the percocet is taken with the opana to help with the pain while I wait for the opana to start working!
Avatar m tn I think I got the generics for three to four months before deciding to try snorting one. So now I have been snorting my prescription for about two months, can tell my tolerance is skyrocketing, and know I need to quit snorting and go back to taking them orally, as soon as possible. I know there is going to be some serious discomfort doing so. One time I had to go one whole day without taking any Opana (pharmacies ran out!) and I got shingles (this was when I only took them orally).
Avatar m tn Does anyone else have an opinion about switching to a different medicine so I can get better relief and stop abusing my Opana? I won't be able to stop snorting the oxymorphone since its the only way it makes my pain tolerable. Percocet perhaps due to its very high oral bioavailability? At least I wouldn't snort anything with acetaminophen. If no one else can help me out I will stop bumping my thread so others can get help.
Avatar f tn But ive gone told turkey many times off several different opiates, including hydrocodone hydromorphone fentanyl oxymorphone oxycodone and heroin. Most of the time when I tried to quit on my own I went cold turkey. I always preferred enduring the withdrawals no matter how intense they were, in exchange for getting them over with in the shortest amount of time. In my experience with oxycodone, the withdrawals always lasted about 10 days until I felt relatively normal.
Avatar m tn 5 vicoden to oxymorphone is almost ludicrist ...but then snorting it was not in the directions i would hope....if ur doctor told u to snort the opana u need to report him immediately...but in the meantime he is helping u taper down.....do u blame this doctor for all of this? do u take any responsibilty for it or do u feel ur doctor kindof slipped this in on u to make u become an addict? i sure hope i never run into a doctor like this...
401095 tn?1351395370 Hello Worried, In my opinion you have a right to be concerned. Opana is Oxymorphone and very similar to Morphine. It may or may not produce a euphoria for you. Morphine has never effected me in that manner. A medication web-site says, "Oxymorphone may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Oxymorphone should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction.
Avatar f tn I was on 4 30mg oxycodone a day and was switched to 2 40mg er oxymorphone a day. Plus a Clonidine patch for the inbetween times. Omg, I'm in WDs twice a day, well I did a bad thing and starting sniffing a little piece. I got up to doing it all that way but back down to a quarter of it that way. I also broke them in halfs to take 4 times a day to help make them last 6 hours each. This is so not the med for me nor the group to be in. I need to get all the way take to oral only. I have an apt.
Avatar f tn Hello ProdigalGirl, Opana is Oxymorphone which 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. It should not make you"high" as long as it is used as prescribed. If you had not had oxycodone I would be more inclined to warn you to watch for the buzz until your body adjust to it. Good luck to you.
Avatar m tn i think the pharacist meant why is your doc prescribing oxymorphone(opana) instead of oxycontin SR. oxycontin doesn't have other meds in it like percoset(which has oxycodone and an anti-inflammitory in it). the reason your doc might not prescribe oxycontin might be because of the widespread abuse of oxycontin. people who abuse oxycodone prefer oxycontin because it does not have the anti-inflammitory in it(so they can take more w/o ruining the stomach).
Avatar f tn For those of you that don't know Opana, it's Oxymorphone. 20mg of Opana is the same as 40mg of Oxy. I'm not trying to get posts about how the bioavailability of Opana makes it equal to a different amount. I've been abusing them by crushing them and snorting them. If I were to convert it all to Oxy to make it easy, it's be 7 x 40mg that go up my nose. I hurt my back and had surgery and have been on different meds. I need them for my back but I abuse them regardless of how hard I try not to.
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.
566544 tn?1219441277 5 mg Opana/Oxymorphone........10 mg Oxycodone....20 mg Hydrocodone…30 mg Codeine.........200 mg Methadone..….15 - 20 mg Demerol...........300 mg Darvacet...........
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 n tn According to the literature, nubaine is an opiate partial agonist--a synthetic narcotic that is chemically related the the narcotic antagonist, naloxone. It's also similar to a potent narcotic analgesic (pain reliever), oxymorphone, a semi-synthetic opiod substitute for morphine. All of which sounds contradictory to me, but I'm no pharmacologist--perhaps Serge could translate this to layman's terms? YooHoo--Serge??
Avatar f tn This time, I was one 150mg of Oxycodone (10 x 15mg) and 80mg of Opana (Oxymorphone) per day. I've always crushed and snorted them. This was clearly the worst time but I was determined and have been clean for a week. The first 4 days were pure hell but I started feeling a little better on days 5 and 6. Today, day 7, has been pure hell. I've been irritated, restless, exhausted, and just miserable. I've had my 3 year old son with me the whole time since day one.
Avatar f tn Hey there,my name is christos and I definitely know how you feel..was in a bad situation with a severe addiction to snorting heroin, oxycontin, and dilaudid for almsot 3 years.I was enslaved to pills and powder, it was daily battle to get that next fix/high..its absolutely de-grading, terrible, and overpowers anyone no matter how strong one amy think they are..you are correct if you take the vicodin es(extra strength) it contains 7.
Avatar f tn I recently asked him to increase my oxycodone to 30 and he acted like i told him to cut off his arm. So i began snorting them which again at first seemed to help some but now again im back to suffering debilitating back pain. I dont do the shopping or cooking or anything else normal ppl do...i just exsist. Ive done alot of reading on the net but yet hv i found the "right"answer to my questions so im hoping maybe i can get some advice~no lecturing plz!!~.
Avatar m tn (Opana) I have been snorting the ER's for a cpl yrs now with a short 7 month break on Methadone. I'm just fed up with it all and I'm ready to move on with my life. I know withdrawals suck (been through them a time or 6) but I dont feel Methadone or Subs will truly help me get clean. So has anyone beatin' an Opana addiction on her before?
Avatar n tn Although I will say one time I got away with taking methadone orally every day for 2 weeks and did not end up getting withdrawals. But when shooting up heroin/oxycodone/hydromorphone/oxymorphone etc it only takes 3 days of daily use for me.
666151 tn?1311117976 Suboxone itself can be abused for short periods of time, until tolerance develops to the drug. Snorting Suboxone reportedly results in a faster time of onset, without allowing the absorption of the naloxone that prevents intravenous use. Finally, the remission model of Suboxone use implies long term use of the drug.
