I am on Opana ER 10 mg three times a day, plus 3 PRNs of Opana IR 5 mg. Lately I have needed more PRNs for my mood to be stable--or I get into this fearful condition of mind. I am sure I need a non-ER drug to taper off of--especially since I cannot cut ERs. I want to change to a drug that won't cause any more of a buzz than Opana does. I don't think Opana causes a buzz. I haven't got experience with other opiates. Could you recommend a drug that I could more easily taper from. As I mentioned I don't want to get a buzz from it, like I did when I took xanax. Thanks so much, Anna
