I also take opana which seems to have more relaxing effect on me. I take the opana er and the roxicodone for b/t pain. I have had 4 surgeries,2 on my left and 2 on my right shoulder,even so I still have terrible pain in both. Opana makes me drowsy and I wondered if there was an extended release form of roxicodone?
Narcotics have a stimulating effect on many people. I remember when I was taking 15-20/day I could stay up half th night... a very speedy effect. I have heard this from so many people. Now... if I took it for real pain and took it at night or even n the day for that matter... it would then have a sedative effect... go figure!!
So neither one of u r abnormal!!!
Have a good one... Pup
Try asking for Methocarbamol for your shoulders. But continue taking the pain med's as described. The Methocarbamol made a huge difference on that particular area for me. My stomach couldn't handle all the med's plus the Ibuprofen and stopped taking Ibuprofen regularly, but once in a while still when they hurt badly I do and whal-lah, felt much better within days. Not habit forming as a bonus. I recently have a friend that had his rotor-cuff along with some other ligament damage done and was taking it, plus other med's, prior to the surgery and loved it, but the damage was too great, hence surgery. The extended-time-release formula is very expensive(Last I called to check $500.00 at 30 day count but works without questions) as they bought all the generic right is Oxycontin. I had my monthly doc visit today and changed my pain med's from Vicoprofen or Hydrocodone w/Ibuprofen & Methadone 10mg to Oxycodone 15mg which is the generic of Roxicodone.
I was an Iron Worker for 20+ years, plus odd jobs as Landscaping, and others just as hard on the body. As of 19 years ago I had never been injured (no bones even), but there was one issue that caused 1 herniated disk and 1 bulging that need surgery. That was the beginning and I have been through the gantlet of pain med's if you have any questions, but your experiences may vary so please do not take my word for or as and advice. BEST WISHES TO YOUR GREAT HEALTH.. yourfingers!
