In its place I got prescribed MS Contin 60 mg. I had never had it as I only had the Morphine IR in the past and hated it. I like the MS Contin. It is really covering my pain well and I was surprised by this. I may not switch to the new Opanas as long as this is helping me because all I care about is not being in pain!!
amen...that's actually what I would like to be on (60mg MS Contin BID w/ maybe 3 15-mg IRs for breakthrough...or hell a few vic 10's if I'm not on gabapentin...
I tried Gabapentin at the very beginning of pain management and all it did is make me hungry so I gained 20 pounds in three months and it actually changed my mood. I hated it. I was always angry. I had never had a medication make me feel so full of rage as gaba did. I wonder if anyone else had this experience?
Little update: One of my friends came up for refills recently, no problem filling his script. I asked him to see if there would be a problem next month, but for free of begin labeled a "Druggie" he didn't ask.
I'll report back later this month, and the start of next (when the change over it supposed to happen). I'll keep you guys informed. By the way, word of this has gotten around and I'm already hearing of street prices for these going up on everyone.
This is going to be a bad year to be a pill head anyway. We've seen this and that pulled off the market, rising prices on the streets, the situation in America's penis....its just drying up. I'm watching it happen before my eyes down here and its awful for everyone involved. I'm actually expecting H to push its way into these areas that are currently dominated with a pill market, there is just going to come a time where there won't be enough out there for everyone (actually that's already true) and with the rising prices H is just looking more and more like the better buy as time goes on.
I hope that it doesn't come to that, but I currently don't see any other way unless most everyone kicks their pill habits. I don't see many of them kicking and going to a "clinic" for the liquid hand cuffs just isn't something people do around here. Its not like the big cities, it an entirely different game/world.
I didn't go through and read every reply, so I apologize if this has been said already...
I think the "shortage" is all about where you live now, because most of the pharmacies around where I live, have all received shipments of Opana in various dosages. I know a few people who have gotten their scripts filled with absolutely no issues filling their scripts. I know the 20s, 30s, and 40s are available locally. & that's at big chain pharmacies, not just mom & pop pharmacies.
Not to mention, Opana is back in production, because people that are on the Endo PAP program are receiving their meds as well. Another thing I read was that the 10MG ER'S will be the first ones put out. So perhaps the OG 20s, 30s, and 40s will be around a bit longer..
...But once again, I apologize if this has been mentioned before, I just skimmed through the first page of replies. Hopefully this helps clear some stuff up, though...
Maybe the heroin will be of a higher potency & better quality than ever before if the pills are being pushed out of the market. I for one have never tried heroin or Opana but I wanted to try Opana but never knew anyone that had any.........but maybe thats a good thing because I would be sitting here after trying it a few times & not being able to get it again.
They are coming out with a new formulation, yes. But so far, only the 10MG XR tablets have been made. The original formulation is still making its rounds to the local pharmacies. The new abuse resistant ones still haven't made it to my area. All of the opana's I've come across, have been the original formula. Whether it's me just acquiring them from someone, or taking a family member to get their Rx filled... it's been all original formula man.
So in short, no... the new formulation is not being shipped to my area.
HP&L, I completely agree man (or woman.). I can do 10mgs of oxymorphone, and feel amazing. 20mg, and here comes the nodddd. So potent. Just one time, I'd like to IV an IR10. I bet that is intense as FUCK. Oh man..
Anybody know if the new er 40s are available in southern west virginia yet?
an old friend told me they are all over NC now
red 30s that are round
and good luck crushing em
I have a few of the new 10's they r round and under the coating the pill looks like opaque plastic. I could use sandpaper and an electric drill rigged up to sand down the ops to make a fine powder but my attempt with these new opana didn't work the same way so they are definitely different. I used a razor and cut one opana 10 into very thin slices (took a good amount of time) and now i'm experimenting on small portions of it with different Liquids and techniques to see if I can defeat ths new formulation. Water obviously gels the pill still but I tried it any way just to see. Alcohol doesn't work either anymore but the gel seems to be just as nasty as the ops.
I'm going to try the microwave trick that seems to be effective for ops and see if that works, then gonna move to some solvents like acetone or meh if I can get some

Ok I tried the browning in the micro I put it in there for like 14 minutes and it only got really hot. Just as reference I normally nuke an op for 7 to 9 minutes to get a whole pill browned this opana was maybe a fifth to a quarter and it didn't even start to brown. What I did do that I thought may have had a little effect was putting a little bit in a spoon and put a flame underneath till it started to brown. I then put the spoon in the freezer to cool it off. Once cooled I added some water and mixed quickly and sucked up the water through a cotton. I used a rig with no needle attached and the liquid was not gelatinous at all.
Couple of things to mention, first the liquid didn't taste bitter (the pill shaving don't either). Second I didn't enough pill to feel a rush even if I managed to get all the Oxy m into the rig. And third the remainder of contents in the spoon did turn to gel by the time I was done.
All in all i'm not sure if it worked but if someone wants to try this on a larger scale and confirm or deny if it works be my guest.
One last thing the heat from the lighter under the spoon may have destroyed the Oxy m i'm not sure on the heat it takes to destroy the molecule but it was short duration with back and forth repetition just long enough to brown.
I only have 2 more tens so I wanna try some other stuff like acetone to see if that works. If anyone else has any suggestions let me know and I'll try them if I can

I just went to my pain management appointment and was given my normal meds......Opana Er and Opana Ir. When I went to fill them I was told that the IR's have been discontinued......they are no longer available. Does anyone know if this is a permanent thing or are they reformulating those as well?
I don't think the instant release opana is cancelled. You can get generic oxymorphone IR, not just from Endo.
Well I can understand this because out of all the opiods I have done, I've never heard so many bad things about a painkiller. I have had not one, but two friends OD and die from Opana. Even my friends who IV morphine with me are afraid of Opana. I have never done it and after hearing so many things I am craving to do it. I just feel bad for the actual chronic pain patients. By the time I am an adult and can get my own prescriptions they'll probably have non abusable Xanax
