Yes; from the product information here at Drugs.com:

"Patients with Hepatic Impairment.
Opana is contraindicated in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment. Use Opana with caution in patients with mild hepatic impairment, starting with the lowest dose (e.g., 5 mg) and titrating slowly while carefully monitoring side effects [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]."

This is oxycodone in a time release that is very strong. Its an opioid so the least harmful of pain relievers but i would sugest you go with instant release if your doc can give it to you and you want to have more control over your dosage per hr. Im not a doc tho. Just a chronic pain patient with cirrhosis
