I am currently on 10 mg and I feel that I don't always need the entire dose. I know with the extended release Opana, it should not be crushed. I just wasn't sure with the IR whether or not breaking it would change any effects of the drug. Thanks so much!
Yes it would change the effects if you break the tabs. Take this medicine with a full glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release tablet. Swallow the pill whole. It will release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.
Hope this helps?
