... whole lumbar, and spinal cord was injured! I've got so many different issue's that my specialists have been putting off surgery for a number of reasons! Anyway,,my question is this,,Im on Opana 40mg ER × 4 times a day, and Opana 10mg IR ×6 times a day, and Lyrica, cymbalta, 2 diff types of blood pressure meds,,because my pain level really raises my blood pressure bad,,like most of you I'm sure! I was rushed to the ER monday because my back made a snap and I was down,,with taking my normal meds it wouldn't touch my pain, or blood pressure, when I got there my blood pressure was 228/86,,the pain I felt & am still feeling. I had my test results come back and I've got sum more issues,,Lucky me! The hospital used liquid hydromorphone 8 times through IV and it finally took my pain levels down, and blood pressure! They think it's possible this new medication will work for me,,and I'm really scared for the simple reason my pain is constant around the clock & severe!! So,,what would be a dose of EXALGO ER & Exalgo IR,,considering the Opana's that I've been on nearly a year to this day! I've been on the same dose for a solid year of Opana,,and here's this new med that's suppose to be the opposite,,which may help me coupe better & longer without suffering!! PLEASE HELP,,i see my specialist @10am tomorrow,,Thank you & God Bless all of you that suffer!! It really is a terrible way to live,,I know it very well!!
I really need a straight up answer here! I've got severe chronic pain from a MVA,,in 2004,,and my?

Thank u for the caring support, and the info that u did have to give! Well here's what happened,,,since they finally got the neuroligical report. Things have gotten even worse for me,,I've now wearing a left foot brace, and of course my back brace, and they prescribed me a cain to use in order to help me get around, andits suppost to take away sum of the pain I go thru constantly,,with the nerve damage that is going on now,and has spread all the way to my shin,foot,,from my spinal injuries!! They kept me on Opana 40 ER @8 times a day,,so that's taking 2 of my 40ER's 4 times a day, and they kept my 10mg opana ir's the same for breakthru, which is 10mg ir @6 times a day,Lyrica 225mg@2 times a day,5mg diazapam for muscle relief,cymbalta, tenex[blood pressure at night],Lisinopiral[blood presssure in morning],and now testosterone cypionate injections,,,all of these meds and I'm only 38 years old!! My god please let them get me straightened out with sum type of relief and life again!! I feel like a complete burden,,I've never been able to just sit around thru my life,,and now that's all I do,,,and worry,,I lost a 75k year job,with new car benefits,insurance,everything I needed in my life!! I just always wish that I would've had 1 of my guys that worked under me jump in that car that day!! I know its terrible to say,,but I just wish it wasn't me,,and now I live like a freaking vegetable but with severe chronic pain everyday!! Please God!
Sorry to here of your suffering and wish I could do more. There is a drug called Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) that is supposed to be real good, I am allergic so I don't know for sure, but I have heard many rave about it you may want to ask about that. I hope you are feeling better soon and they figure out what to do for you so you don't suffer so much, marjorie zych

Currently on Exalgo 32,8 and hydromorphone 4mg as needed, not working great. How does Opana compare?
