I have been taking 35-40 mg of percocet a day for breakthrough pain along with 30 mg of morphine sulfate ER every 12 hours. I was switched to Opana ER 30 mg every 12 hours. Is this too high of a dose of Opana ER for me? I'm afraid to take my first pill this morning, please advise. Thank you.
No, I don't believe you need to worry about the conversion. The Opana should actually work better than the morphine and you will probably not need the percocet for breakthrough pain.
I would take the Opana & hold off on your breakthrough medicine until you see how you feel first. If it was prescribed by you doctor he must think you can Handel it. I've been on Opana 40 mg ER for 4 years now & I've had no problems
