I inject 40mg's of oxymorphone 3 times a day. Why won't a detox center take me?

I inject 40mg's of oxymorphone 3 times a day. Why won't a detox center take me?

Beats me: However, the success rate of detox is extremely low, unless it is followed by a strong support program, and ideally a formal residential treatment program. Some make it with detox and na, but most people do better with a maintenance therapy. See if there are Buprenorphine and/or Methadone providers in your area. There is nothing life-threatening about opiate withdrawal, and inpt is not necessary. ...Read more

I'm allergic to Morphine, so will I be allergic to Oxymorphone medications also?

Opiate allergies?: It depends. Alot of folks claim to be allergic to various medications, when in fact, they have side effects. Since we do not know what your reaction was to Morphine, it's kinda hard to predict what you might experience with other drugs. My advice is to try and avoid taking Opiates on a regular basis, as you may become dependent and then have withdrawal symptoms when you don't take the Opiates. ...Read more

Why do the instant release and extended release opana aka oxymorphone take so long to kick in? I need it for immediate pain relief.

Why do the instant release and extended release opana aka oxymorphone take so long to kick in? I need it for immediate pain relief.

Depends: It sounds like you are in the midst of changing your pain med regimen. It might be that the previous pain medicine you were on had faster onset characteristics. Also extended release is always much slower and steady in release than any instant or short acting release formulation of a pain medicine. This may take awhile for you to adjust. If not tolerating I would contact the doctor you are seeing. ...Read more

My pharmacy said that oxymorphone was being discontinued by the manufacturer and that I would have to switch to some other form of pain relief.

My pharmacy said that oxymorphone was being discontinued by the manufacturer and that I would have to switch to some other form of pain relief.

Oxymorphone: Yes this is correct - This is because some folks in Indians figured out how to manipulate the branded OPANA ER and they dies from kidney and liver failure. While the FDA asked the manufacturer to pull the med they did not mention the generic version. Typically easily abusable medications are generic cheaper versions of the branded med. Another good medication taken away because of stupidity. ...Read more

Dr switched me: hydrocodone to oxymorphone. I can tolerate hydrocodone, will oxymorphone be any different? Will it cause high bp? Increase PVCs?

Dr switched me: hydrocodone to oxymorphone. I can tolerate hydrocodone, will oxymorphone be any different? Will it cause high bp? Increase PVCs?

Depends on dose: Opioids generally have the same effects if given in equipotent doses. However, hydrocodone is usually used only in small doses (5-10 mg) in combination with tylenol, (acetaminophen) although 2 new higher dose long-acting preparations are now available. Oxymorphone can be given in much higher doses in both immediate and extended-release forms. Opioids are not usually associated with hypertension or PVCs. ...Read more

Having a cooled radio frequency nerve ablation trial run. Still on pain meds how do I know if it works? Butrans patch, Lyrica (pregabalin) and oxymorphone, worried

Relief will happen: The way you will know if the ablation was successful is that you won't feel the need to seek out your meds all the time. Sometimes a medial branch block is tried prior to doing the ablation and if that was helpful then chances are that the ablation will be beneficial also. ...Read more

I use oxymorphone ER for pain. I have constipation tried oc's & linzess, amitiza, relistor (methylnaltrexone). I use enema evry 3 days. Is this safe 4 long term usage?

I use oxymorphone ER for pain. I have constipation tried oc's & linzess, amitiza, relistor (methylnaltrexone). I use enema evry 3 days. Is this safe 4 long term usage?

Constipation: You don't say why you're using the narcotic or how much time or how much. Constipation is a serious problem over a long time. Using laxatives or any thing of the sort can can lead to dependence on those medications. You end up in later years being very miserable. Of course if you're legitimately taking opiates constipation is a side effect. Minimize the problem. ...Read more

Where in maryland can I get oxymorphone prescribed? I broke my leg a few years ago, and did not have surgery, when I got my walking boot I took it off and starting doing hard labor work. I confident that my leg did not heal back right, because it gives m

Where in maryland can I get oxymorphone prescribed? I broke my leg a few years ago, and did not have surgery, when I got my walking boot I took it off and starting doing hard labor work. I confident that my leg did not heal back right, because it gives m

So,: So, let me understand you... You were prescribed a walking boot after a broken leg, but didn't use it, and instead began "heavy labor, " and relied on narcotics to essentially mask the pain.

And, if I read your question correctly, you were also in a cast which you implied was removed prematurely. You're also active in sports and have a job that is physically demanding, and rather than look to try to find solutions to your problems, would rather live on narcotics and not even attempt to find relief.

If I'm reading your question correctly, it sounds like you're going to have a very difficult time finding anyone who would be willing to keep prescribing narcotics for you. Narcotic pain medication certainly plays an important role in helping people in pain while they heal. In some instances, where the pain is terminal or nothing has been able to reduce your pain to a tolerable level, narcotics might then have a purpose.

But it sounds like you're not even interested in finding a solution, and would just prefer to live the rest of your life working hard and playing sports, but relying on narcotics to see you through it all.

I'm sorry to sound judgmental, but if you're not even willing to try to get better, and deliberately, outright refuse to wear a cast or boot, you can't expect to not suffer the consequences of your own actions. Thus, you will find it exceedingly difficult to find a doctor willing to write you prescriptions for narcotics with no effort on your part to make an attempt to fix the problem that is causing the pain in the first place. ...Read more

I was taking codeine 4. my liver enzymes is a little elevated. What other opiates is similar to codeine? Oxycodone and oxymorphone gets me sick. F/55

I was taking codeine 4. my liver enzymes is a little elevated. What other opiates is similar to codeine? Oxycodone and oxymorphone gets me sick. F/55

Talk to your doctor: Codeine is usually formulated with Tylenol (acetaminophen) which can harm your liver. Other opiods such as morphine, hydromorphone, or hydrocodone (new formulation) may be appropriate in your case. Opiods are a double edge sword. They hurt you more in the long run, than help you. Find a pain management specialist in your area. ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
