    *PIC ADDED* Global Pharma's Generic Oxymorphone ER (opana) 
    #1
    see picture some posts below!!

    Why have I not seen any threads on bluelight about the new generic that just started shipping on Jan 1? I was anxious to read folks experiences with it, and hopefully see a picture! This is NOT the 7.5 and 15mg generic that's been around for awhile now from Actavis. This is for ALL strengths equivalent to Opana ER's. 5, 10, 20, 30, 40.

    The new generic is based off of the original Opana ER formulation. Not even the chlorine tasting half-moon formula, again the ORIGINAL "opana" form.

    It is Impax Pharma's generics division known as Global (edit, said 'World' on accident) Pharma.

    Granted I don't check bluelight on a regular basis, but I imagined it would've been a hot topic.

    I asked my pharmacist, and he looked them up on his computer... he was shocked, but found them to be in stock and otherwise had no idea of their existence. He was a little upset because he said sometime in the near future, insurance claims for Endo's Opana ER will be declined with NO notice, directing him to the fact that they will only be covering the new generic. He said when this happens, he will end up being stuck with $500+ worth of brand name pills he wont be able to sell.

    Reversible,

    First, you have made my day! I haven't seen the old school opana since September, and found just a few this month (but I stress like three days worth). This was my second DOC after I started on OC's.

    Also, thanks for the references.

    I will tell you this; My "guy" is the Opana man. When they quit making them last Jan., he kept them up until September. When they hit the street, I'll be hopefully some of the first to see them.
    When I do, I'll give you a full report.

    If anyone has gotten any word on this, I second reversible, give us some info please!

    Glad I could make someone's day It's made my day/month/year for sure. I used to be Rx'ed them until I went to the patch after the re-form. Believe you me, I'm gonna try to get my PMD to make the switch back.

    Damn, you got them regularly until September!? I guess it makes sense, seeing as how pharmacies and warehouses probably had a shit load of it to unload. Im sure folks searched high and low (obviously) to find every last pharmacy that had them or could still order them. Im just shocked though that you were still able to find some THIS month!

    The other good news for those who due purchase illicitly, specifically you -- should expect to pay a LOT less than what you have been paying for this original forumula now that it will be ubiquitous again. However it will be more expensive than what folks pay for the TRF bullshit.

    I really appreciate you keeping me in mind (PM me if you remember) when you see them. You should tell your "man" to print off those notices -- and arrange for the pharmacies he or his "peeps" deal with to go ahead and demand the generic -- as pharmacists will otherwise have NO idea until insurance starts rejecting claims and redirecting them to the generic.

    But in theory, since my pharmacist could see these new beautiful babies available for ORDER from his LOCAL warehouse -- some people COULD already have these.

    Yay!

    My friend is prescribed the ERs, I let him know about this so thanks for the post OP.

    I'll let you know when he refills, he's going to ask to get switched to the generics because of his co-pay begin so expensive. When I see them I'll report back.

    I'd say you'll walk into the Dr's office with a glow and a smile soon! And hopefully, walk out with the goods sir!

    No shit about getting them until last September and using them 3 days this month. I literally shit my pants when I found out there were 40 to be had; They went in about 4 days, expensive.

    I know when the OC's went to the TRF formula, I went to Opana. They weren't bad at the time on price, but jesus, I can't say it, but it's a lot for one pill.

    The reason I could snatch them up is my "guy" is about as str8 as they come; He does his thing and does not use; This is a bonus. I know he had enough money when they went to TRF to buy up as many as he could get his hands on. It was just luck this month.

    However, this is a double-edged sword...With tax time approaching, I know what happened last year! I went for about a month doing 80-120 mg's a day with a xanax bar or two at the most....After that binge, I went to bed that last night knowing I had sub. The next day, I had to call into work and I took 8 mg's and felt like I had been hit by a semi. Jesus, I bought a 1/2 of a 40 that day, I'll never forget, it didn't do a damn thing. Glad I got off that bus when they went TRF. It probably saved my life, but I kick myself for not finding out about these when Oxycontin was the thing. I had read online about Opana and thought it was bullshit, nothing could beat OC. Fuck, I could've stole those things back in the day on the price, I bet it would've been cheap!

    I will definitely keep you in check; In fact, I'll be talking to my guy and I've got your info; He don't use the net much, but he knows I won't bs him...I'm going to go ahead and say he probably knows, he stays on top of the game.

    I'm guessing a few weeks and it will be on. Let me know how your situation works out, I envy you if you can get the generics on script...I bow down sir! Nod hard friend!

    Lucky

    Many thoughts running through my head right now, I will filter out the ones which contain disdain, jealousy, and maybe even a hint of rage. (jk)

    Please, please, please be more specific. ROA? Compare your subjective findings to that of your past experiences with Endo's original formula.

    And for god's sake, take a picture of one of them for us!!

    Which mg?

    What does ROA? Mean?

    They are pretty much the same as far as taste and effect.. I got the 40mg They are orange and kind of the shape of the old OC but thicker. They have G 74 on them. I have only done one so far, and it tasted pretty much the same, slightly different. i didn't have a shaver so I had to crush it. I'm not sure if they shave, but they crush easily....

    Everything is the same.. It's all good people! Just ask your doctor to dispense as a generic!

    As far as a picture... I'll take on my phone n try to send it to myself somehow lol

    Route of Administration = ROA.
    Sounds like nasal?

    Well, I love what I hear so far.

    As far as the pic goes, in my experience, you simply text the picture to your e-mail address instead of typing in a phone number, works like a charm.

    Not sure if a newbie can post attachments/pics or not until a certain # of posts?

    EDIT: found pic online, see below, but would still appreciate a more personal image from a prescribee
    thanks man! you're a pioneer of a revolution! and to obtain a 40 out of the gate? dang.
