If a doctor has: prescribed you both drugs, I am not sure why you are not asking the prescribing physician and/or the pharmacist who is dispensing the drug.

On opana 10 mgs ir at night for severe rls. Not lasting through the night. Can opana ER be taken once a day? Would this cause daytime withdrawal s/s?
OpanaIR lasts on : Average between six and 13 hours with the average being somewhere around eight. Opana er lasts between six and 36 hours. I would talk to your sleep specialist about this. Having a narcotic in your system around the clock is probably not in your best interest. Switching to another narcotic may indeed be a better answer. Another possibility would be a slight increase in the dose of the ir form. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can't explain it: Either. Hydrocodone (the opiate in vicodin) is metabolized into hydromorphone (which is dilaudid) and Oxymorphone (the opiate in opana) is metabolized into morphine. Oxycodone, the opiate in Percocet should not be found. So, either somebody switched pills on you, or something is wrong with the testing, and that would be unusual for most labs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
