(I've noted this question 2x but can't find it anywhere on here,so if you see it again.sorry)but I'm going from oxycotin er 30mg 2xday to opana er(I'm guessing it will be the brand bc that's what my insurance approved,right?cn the pharmacist go ahead and just fill it with generic?) ok.will changing over to opana er be better in pain help than the oxycotin bc it got to whet it wasn't helping at all? Now as far as the oxycodone(Percocet,I can't take bc it causes severe anxiety at all times)so the only breakthrough the med I cn take is the hydrocodone(loratab/loracet) 10/325 4xday. Then I need to know if anyone has taken the ADHD med Vyvanse with Opans or any of the ADHD stimulant meds with thes strong narcotic meds? Any one that elaborate on any of thes questions would sure help assure me that things might get alil better. The vyvanse was prescribed for concentration,cfs,focus&hopefully alil energy. So please help me if you can on any of my concerns. Thanks for reading. God bless&Merry Christmas. (hopefully I won't have to rewrite all this again,evidently I have no idea how to submit my questions right. P.s. I'm a 48yo female
First suffering there should be no problem with the other meds your taking and the Opana is a extended release more in the morphine family the doctor has changed due to the fact that you said the other was not working very well anymore you should be just fine.one note because it is a extended release look at this warning never break the pill.(((Be sure to swallow Opana ER extended-release tablets whole. Do NOT break, crush, cut, dissolve, or chew Opana ER extended-release tablets before swallowing it. Do NOT inject or snort Opana ER extended-release tablets. Doing any of these things could result in very serious side effects, including severe trouble breathing and death from overdose.)))) This would be the same for any timed release pill. but just want to bring to your attention.
Also because it is different than the other pain medication it may seem stronger when you first start it so be aware of that and take it when you can stay home just incase but after you have taken it a few times it does not hit you as hard. Hope this one last longer for you make sure you follow the directions close that are on the bottle. have a good day. And hope you have better control over the pain with this one. Chuck1957
Sufferin; YES for sure start the Vyvanse and see how it well work to help give you some energy it should not take that many dose's to know if it's going to help. NO THYROID is enough to cause lots of problems. aND BE AWARE depending on how your other meds are working when you start the VYVANSE don't be surprised if you feel nervous or shaky at first and more so if you are just starting it.not to worry remind yourself the medication is doing this it is not you.hope that answers you feel free to ask what you need. keep the faith and stay positive.God bless to.You well get through all of this. I WELL FRIEND YOU AS SOON AS MINE WORKS I KEEP TURNING IT IN BUT THEY HAVE NOT FOUND OUT WHAT IS WITH IT. CHUCK1957
Hi I also suffer from fatigue and haven't had much relief from my pain, newly married (last October) my house work is suffering also, and I feel useless at times, my husband is very understanding and helps out when he's not working but I feel so much guilt, I hoped things would get better but not much relief from the pain, my question is how do you deal with the fatigue and do you also feel guilty for not getting things done? I sometimes wonder if I was born with an anxiety / guilt complex or something.
sufferin; The two pain medications are in the same family the doctor has a guide to say what should be close to taking both. Now the IR is immedeatly realease so the one thing you do want to do is make sure you take the timed release soon enough so that you don't have to worry and wait for it to kick in. Just try to keep doses far enough apart so you don't get even more sleepy does the doctor also have you on some type anti depressant I can't remember but they do have plenty of proof that they do help for us with chronic pain. Hope you get this all settled soon I know its hard. Chuck1957
