Opana, oxymorphone hydrochloride, is a 12 hour opiate available in different strengths. I have taken it for a couple of years and can definitely tell the difference in my pain level when I forget to take it.

Mcg not Mg. Mg's would instantly kill you.

Technically yes, but the max dose thats usually administered is 2500mcg which is in turn technically 2.5 mg although it is diluted in solution. So yes your comment is accurate but technically his statement is not wrong. sorry i had to say it.

I retract my answer I was also wrong on my answer your right I'll admit I was surprised that after all these years I'm not up on the conversion so I'm sorry for my stupidity mcg to mg is ÷ or × by 1000 depending on which way you go again sorry

All narcotic agents have a dissociative effect that helps patients manage pain. It does not actually deaden the pain, but works to dissociate patients from the pain. Commonly used narcotics, listed in ascending order of potency (strength) include:

codeine; propoxyphene (e.g. Darvocet); hydrocodone (e.g. Vicodin); oxycodone (e.g. Percocet, Oxycontin).

In general, narcotic medications can be highly effective in treating back pain for short periods of time (less than two weeks). After the initial two weeks, the body rapidly builds a natural tolerance to narcotic medications and they lose their effectiveness. While some physicians believe that narcotics can be used long-term at low doses to treat chronic pain, narcotics are most commonly used to treat severe acute (short-term) low back pain or post-operative pain.

It would be very highly recommended to seek medical advice before you take any pain narcotic meds, take care, be safe & well!
