For Pain: “Best pain medication!!! I have been prescribed everything from Percocet 5 mg to Dilaudid 8mg including oxycodone 30 mg to morphine 60 mg and when I was prescribed oxymorphone 10 mg it knocked all of the other medications out of the water with relieving the pain and last the longest, it is a life-saving painkiller I am now prescribed 10 mg IR four times a day and live a pain-free life because of that!!”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “After many trials of pain medication oxymorphone was prescribed. Finally relief. Now after years of being on this the pharmacist called me to tell me just two days before my refill it's being taken off the market. This was a huge branch pharmacy. I called another large chain store and was told the same thing. I have a message into my pain clinic but not looking forward to this change.”

CRPS24/7torture. · Taken for 10 years or more April 17, 2019

For Pain: “Oxymorphone ER and IR's are the most effective pain reliever for my Severe, 24/7 CRPS pain My CRPS pain drops to 3-4 from 9 after a morning dose of 30mg. Quick acting, 15-20 minutes and common opioid side effects are much fewer than OC/MS/HC/Fentanyl/ et.al. Take as Dr.orders! Fewer if possible. Tolerance grows rapidly. In pain management for the past eight years, have tried all except Tramadol and Nycenta. No other pain medicine comes close. Downside warning: Do not run out early! Ever. I feel better and am able to acheive basic tasks, functionality returns with relief. Do not overdo activity when medicated; you will pay a price in delayed pain. Amazing medication, not cheap, but far more effective than ANY other opioid. ER/IR dose ranges of 80-120 mg daily cover the worst severe pain. Not for mild or moderate pain even though rx info.says moderate to severe. Do not share, ever! Do not discuss unless asked by a trusted fellow chronic pain sufferer. Keep locked in safe!”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I take opana ERfor spinal pain, post surgical pain, and other pain from a car wreck. Before this medicine was introduced I went from being on every pain killer Vic’s, percs, Norco, Avinza(which brought out rage in me.) then a doctor who was also a friend who cared about me recommended I tried opana of course starting at a relativity small dose and went up and since I found the right dose it’s been a god send. My pain is controlled all day for almost 10 hours. Other than dry mouth and peeing a lot it’s a great med. You may get dizzy or nauseous but usually that only happens if you don’t eat after you take it. Pain free is a great thing.”

For Pain: “I've been in pain management on and off for 30 plus years. This medicine, both in the ER, and IR pill form was very effective for me. Extremely expensive, and medicaid does not want to pay for it. ”

For Pain: “I was put on oxymorphone IR 10mg two years ago. This stuff is a lifesaver! I have my life back, I can do things like go to the store, laundry, even cleaning the cat box! Previously, my chronic migraines, crippling arthritis, and fibromyalgia made me feel MUCH older than my 34 years. Though I still walk with a cane, and I still have to wear braces on my joints, taking this has made my life liveable again. I know there are people out there that abuse it, and that's awful for those of us who need it. Banning it or removing it from the market, or making it insanely difficult for those of us who need it to obtain, is not going to solve that problem. People who want a high will just move on to the next thing. For those of us who need it, it's a miracle in a tablet.”

Opana (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I was switched to Opana ER after OxyContin stopped working for my chronic nerve pain. Opana ER gave me at least 12 hrs of relief, no high, and I took much less breakthrough meds. When I went to refilll it a few months ago I was told Opana ER is no longer available due to complications addicts are getting from injecting it. I am very annoyed that the FDA prioritizes abusers over legitimate, responsible pain patients.”

For Pain: “I suffer extremely with a genetic disorder called Familial Hemiplegic Migraines. So severe that I truly no longer have a life. I'm confined to my bed at least 5 days out of 7 throwing up and extreme pain that even my nails and hair hurt. I've suffered a severe heart attack due to my migraines in 2007 ( High blood pressure) With these migraines I suffer through strokes only on the left side of my body! Having my pain medication allows me to live somewhat of a normal life. I can play with my 11 Grandchildren again finally!! But now those of us that are actually in real pain (and not drug addicts or drug dealers) are being treated like we are in fact drug dealers and addicts AND are now being refused our pain medication. I wish those that created these rules could live in our pain just for one day.”

Opana (oxymorphone) for Pain: “My Dr had put me on opana 60 mg twice daily Along with oxymorphone 10mg for breakthrough pain. This did work beautiful. Unfortunately, my insurance changed, and I was put on oxycontin ER and oxycodone. This combo never worked as well the prior medication regime I was on. Even when I increased the amount I was taking on my own, it never fully Took the pain away. He decided after a year or so, to put me on levorphanol and oxycodone for breakthrough pain. The levorphanol works​ ALOT better than the oxycontin still. Levorphanol must be sent through the mail to PA, as it's not carried in this state and MOST pharmacist have never heard of it. It's called the forgotten opioid. Opana Works great for TRUE spinal cord Pain. No high.. Great relief!”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I was on three 10mg ERs per day and it was wonderful. Low side effects, did not need to increase dose even after years. Now that they've pulled it, I've tried oxycontin (20mg twice/day) and then Exalgo (8mg once/day) and neither works as well as the Opana. I have lupus and OA (need joint replacement).”

For Pain: “It takes my severe back pain away really well”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “Doesn't matter what any of us leave in a post as street drug addicts have made the FDA decide to pull our OPana ER. Because they melt it an shoot it up is how it was described to me as I was very upset! My question to FDA & the Government......WHAT ABOUT US PEOPLE THAT NEED IT AN USE IT AS TOLD? Very upset chronic back pain (scoliosis)...plus other issues.”

For Pain: “I was in a motorcycle wreck when I was younger. I almost lost my leg. Was in the hospital 4 months. I couldn't walk for 2 years. Found a new doctor. He operated on it and it healed but I started having problems. My leg was 2 inches shorter then the other. I had broke my leg in 3 places. Messed up the nerves and all my toes got broke. As each year went by my foot started turning into a club foot. After 17 operations and was told I need an ankle replacement but my doctor told me operation doesn't last and the down time is long. I have chronic pain and I get migraines. Over the years I have been on many different pain meds. Oxymorphone ER has given me more relief then any other. Endo pulling Opana ER but Global has Oxymorphone ER”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I have severe leg and back pain. I have had back and leg pain for quite a few years. In 2008 I fell 25 ft out of a deer stand which tore both rotor cuffs and elbow problems. After 9 operations and physical therapy I still have pain which includes back and leg problems. I started on opana ER and take morphine sulfate for break through. Opana has been a wonderful help which has helped me be able to function through the day with some normality which at one point I couldn't do. And now I hear it's going to be pulled off shelves and done away with. Very Disturbing.”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I normally take generic opana (oxymorphone) 30mg and it works great for my pain. I can function good such as go to the store, light yard work, and enjoy family. But I recently got the Brand name opana (endo) and it is awful. I'm in so much pain and experiencing withdrawal symptoms. It's been 18 days and it is still like taking a Placebo. My breakthrough oxycodone 30mg is the only thing keeping me out of the hospital. I've been in bed 90% of the time since taking this Endo brand. I think it's the amount of additive in the medication. ”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I switched to Opana ER this year as the Morphine ER I had been forced to take since last summer made me very nauseated (even w/nausea meds), caused terrible headaches and didn't cover my pain adequately so I could live some sort of life. I have loved the Opana ER. I take 40 mg twice a day and after the first month in which the switchover was difficult there have only been a few occasions where after I took the drug I started going through withdrawal. I'm not sure what was wrong with the pills as I set an alarm to take them and confirmed I took them. Now am in donut hole. Endo pharm won't help because there is a generic which costs more than the Opana. Don't know what to do.”

For Pain: “I have spinal stenosis, DDD, bone spurs, ruptured discs, double laminectomy at L5-S1, L3-L4 in 2013. I've been on oxycodone for over 4 years. That worked great but I started at 100 mg a day and even now only at 80 mg a day, so I think it is not out of the ordinary to have a built up of tolerance. Dr. switched from four 20 mg oxycodone to four 10 mg Oxymorphone. He said it is equivalent to 25 mg oxycodone. It worked a little better on pain, but the side effects were awful!!! I was very sedated, moody, irritable and grumpy. The worst was at night I had a restless leg syndrome type of pain in my legs, and I could NOT stay asleep, even with sleep meds!!! I do NOT recommend this medication! I'm looking into this genetic test I keep hearing about!”

Opana (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I have been on Opana Er 60mg 3x a day for over a year now for chronic back pain. It is wonderful. Nothing has ever worked for me like it has. Not fentanyl patches, not oxys, nothing. I suggest any of you have a genetic test done by your pain doctor. I did. It allows your doctor to be able to tell what pain meds work for you the best. It isn't always about what med is the strongest, its about what your body will use.”

Opana (oxymorphone) for Pain: “Has been a life saver to me. I have a very long history with trauma and has caused me a lifetime of serious pain CRPS, FIBROMYALGIA, PTSD . All my doctor's had said the pain was "in my head", and hearing someone, who SHOULD understand that you can have unimaginable pain due to trauma combined with other Neurological & Psychiatric issues. Thanks to my Psychiatrist for prescribing this for me..It's helped with my depression anxiety and insomnia as well. My doctor and I have an incredible bond...A bond that has taken years, decades, to build the most respected form of TRUST. I DO NOT MESS WITH NOR USE MY MEDICATIONS FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT I'M PRESCRIBED. I keep my RXs to myself & hidden well. Do Not Mess with medicine. NOT INTENDED FOR RECREATIONAL USE, EVER!!!!”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “My insurance co would not fill a rx for oxycontin until I have tried opana & a couple of others I've never heard of. I was in a near fatal auto accident younger, I need a knee & hip replacement, breast cancer at end of 2013 & have had terrible time with infections, causing more surgeries. I lay in bed usually 16 hrs a day (including sleep) because I hurt all over & even more w/ house or yard chores . I'm allergic to morphine, codeine, delaudid, Fentanyl, CT scan dye - I can take only Demerol after surgery. At home the only med that I am not allergic to is oxycontin & ultram. I am now trying opana, because of my insurance company. I'm supposed to take 1 -20mg 2x/day. I am very disappointed. What little relief in gave me was only for about 2 hrs.”

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I've been on Opioids (oxycodone mostly) since my accident in 1996. Approximately 24 months ago I was up to six 30mg Oxycodones daily. This allowed me to have some quality of life~Moderate physical activity.. Then my State took up the anti-oxycodone crusade. My Doctor has me trying everything except oxycodone or oxycontin - The goal is to get completely away from those two (due to pressure from the Government). My daily oxycodone is down to three 30mg plus three 30mg Opana ER (tamper proof). Right off the bat my pain went up. The Opana 30 ER has zero effect regarding pain management.The main side effect is nodding off. "Example* It has taken me 36 minutes to write this". Unless I am actively moving I nod off ~ I dare not drive. Pain 7-8 daily.”

Opana (oxymorphone) for Pain: “I'm going to be very much to the point I had a physician that retired I began seeing a new physician after searching for a physician I was comfortable with I was continued being prescribed oxycodone ER 2-30mg tab 3x a day with 4mg hydromorphone with each dose The Physician referred me to pain management pain management change meds two 100 mg oxycodone ER that is one 40 mg & one 60 mg. & 80mg oxycodone 2x day & 8mg hydromorphone every 8 hrs with each dose. Then pain management switch me to oxymorphone 40mg every 12 hours & 8mg hydromorphone with each dose. Why is this is not working why? Should I go back on 100mg sulfate morphine tablet ER and 8mg hydromorphone 3x a day. Oxymorphone is new to me all the other meds I've been on over 10 years”

i have lower lumbar pain · Taken for 2 to 5 years January 26, 2017

Opana ER (oxymorphone) for Pain: “my bottom spinal disks are crooked and rest on my nerves between them. I was on 60mg of Morphine Sulfate Er. and took it for years and asked my Dr. for an increase and he switched me to Opana 20mg Er pills and they helped my back pain and seem to last a little longer between dosage. I am prescribed it twice a day. I seem to have less tiredness than the morphine and I am prescribed 5mg of oxycodone for morning breakthrough pain. Due to my liver condition he won't increase the oxycodone because it makes the liver turn it into morphine to filter it. when I need an increase of the Opana I'm sure he'll give me that because it's a form of morphine and my liver can process it okay. So I hope this helps other people with my condition or similar.”
