Oxymorphone vs oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxymorphone vs oxycodone


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 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 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.

Avatar n tn That' sall well and good, but I know for a fact that I feel much differently when taking one vs. the other. Maybe he was handing me a line.
541953 tn?1262589826 of that doggone OXYCODONE! See, oxycodone is one of the WORST tolerance-ruiners if you don't take it absolutely *perfectly.* And THAT'S the reason all these doctors you all think are so sadistic and "opiophobic" are so darn conservative when it comes to prescribing oxycodone. Many even prefer to give dilaudid (hydromorphone) or morphine or methadone, over oxycodone for this very reason. So, yes, your 30mg of oxycodone is very, very powerful...
Avatar f tn It's way too late at almost 50 to be off of narcotics all together so now I've been put on Oxymorphone. Dr is trying to stabilize me with a proper dose but I have this issue. My insurance doesn't want to pay for the name brand Opana. I was given generics and they just don't work like they say they're supposed to.
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 5 mg bid yields a 5 mg increase in oxycodone vs. a 15 mg increase. The 7.5 mg oxymorphone ER dose bid would be the closest in terms of equivalent oxycodone dosing. So conversions are not simple and to spare folks of all of this math, I leave it out and provide only what I think is necessary to answer the question.
Avatar n tn I was on oxycontin, now I am on ms contin. Oxycodone is metabolized into noroxycodone and oxymorphone and some oxycodone remains unmetabolized. As far as pain control goes, ms contin, for me, is highly superior....highly! Again, that is for me. The only reason the high is greater with the oxycontin is because of the high percentage that doesn't get lost in the liver. Also, ms contin lasts a lot longer for me. And, it seems to have a much more soothing effect....especially with the pain.
Avatar f tn I think they are developing an Oxymorphone nasal spray, which has a BA of~40%. I've always had the best results with Opana/Oxymorphone (vs Oxycodone) because it lasts longer, it is more "targeted" and hits the right receptor(s) that helps my pain without the "rush" or euphoria Oxycodone seems to produce for me. Oxycodone gives me energy (part of the euphoria, I suppose) and it makes it tougher to sleep.
Avatar f tn Oxy? As in Oxycontin, Oxymorphone, Oxycodone? Have you ever tried any of those? The Oxy's work better for me than the Hydro's for pain relief.
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.
1866508 tn?1333988213 I have recently been referred to a new pain management doc and he is in the process of adding/switching me over to Kadian for long-acting pain control vs. just the Norco I have been on....my question primarily is how long will it take for me to adjust to the change from short acting opiate to the extended release meds...
Avatar n tn Endo applied to the FDA on December 19. Oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone and noroxycodone. Numorphan used to come in pills, but they were abused much too often...they were called blues. And, people loved them.
2126606 tn?1346348724 I can’t tell you the number of patients we receive for detoxification that were given a prescription for Vicodin for a minor pain, like a backache or tooth pain, which eventually led them to take a stronger opiate like oxycodone, creating a domino effect. It’s become a trend in this country for medical professionals to write prescriptions for hydrocodone drugs too quickly, which is creating an epidemic of these drugs being overprescribed to patients who often times don’t need them.
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 m tn Starts with poppy-based raw material (codeine, morphine, thebaine) and chemically alter these in the lab to come up with hydromorphone, hydrocodone, oxycodone, oxymorphone, desomorphine, diacetylmorphine (heroin), etc. Opioid, fully synthetic: Fentanyl, pethidine, methadone, tramadol, dextropropoxyphene, buprenorphine (suboxone), etc. Created in lab with no need for raw material derived from the poppy. Many derived from petroleum.
356518 tn?1322267242 Thebaine is used to create semi-synthetic pain relievers, such as oxymorphone, oxycodone, OxyContin and Dilaudid. I am extremely allergic to Dilaudid but not to oxycodone or OxyContin. Do you see my point? Why am I allergic to Dilaudid and NOT either of the oxys? A chemist may be able to answer that questions but no physician has been able to - other than they are just a bit different in their chemical make up.
Avatar n tn Helllo, I have been taking oxycodone on and off for about 3 years. I had 2 surgeries. One was for ovarian cancer. I had a complete hysterectomy. It was 3rd stage. I was told to have chemo, but I refused. In about a year I ended up with bowel surgery and after that went through 7 treatments of chemo. After a year in a half I was told I had a reoccurrence so I did chemo for another 6 treatments.
Avatar n tn A while back I posted a topic on Morphine Vs Negative Drug screen. It has some very informative info and also explains why the tests can come out negative. Scroll down a few pages and you'll find it or PM Beargizmo, I sent it to him.
Avatar n tn As to what is normal. The doctor is correct. Age plays a factor. Download the Age vs (Average) Testosterone chart in the Files area. If you look it over you will see that at your level it would be "normal" but you would need to be over 100 years old! Not good. The average normal level at your age is over 600 ng/dL and the current thinking from the AACE guidelines is that levels under 325 ng/dL are the new treatment (or further diagnosis at least) indicated.
