i take Opanas ER 40 mgs twice a day along with my morphine 15 IR four times a day, and ive tried so many things and found that this really works for me, but now ive heard that there is a shortage on opanas, ive asked my pharmasist and he said that he would order them for me but not sure if they would come in or not, my pain mgmt dr has not heard this news yet, i dont want to go to oxys cause they dont work as good as the opanas, and i definantly dont want to go to methadone cause ive been on them before and the withdrwal was HORRIBLE to say the least, so im not sure what to think? can someone tell me what is really goin on, so when i go c my dr on the 21st i can tell her what i heard, and can get it fixed so i dont get a script that i cant get filled anywhere and end up going through withdrawl, (that scares me the most!!! )

I saw this on Dateline or one of those shows & they said there was a shortage of opiates in general because where the poppies are mainly grown(Afghanistan) so there may be shortages from time to time,but I'm on a high does of Dilaudid 10 8mg a day & I haven't had any probs. Hope it works out for you.

Someone else asked if they are maybe trying to change the formulation of Opana like they did Oxycontin, but I have heard anything official about it. I also have a friend who takes Opana & can't get it right now anywhere. His doctor is the head of a hospital ,& she says it's just a shortage. The FDA last month said ALL shortages were being handled, & all the opiate & other meds were available already, but I have heard of lots of complaints lately about Opana. You might want to move over to dilaudid at a smaller dose til you can get it gain. Just a thought... Mary
