Opana ER


Comment from: 44 Dan55-64on Treatment for 1-6 months Published: March 03

Diagnosed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in 2000 from knee replacement. Chronic pain since 1996. Twenty one years of pain that can only be managed by Oxycodone 30mg X 6 daily so far. Now our damn government has decided to rid the world of oxy's we are being made to suffer. I am being forced to experiment again. I am taking Opana ER 30mg X 3 daily and I get Zero pain relief. I took 4 for 2 day's and got same result = Zero relief. It causes me to dose off constantly to the point I could not drive. I cut a few in half so that I can take 15mg twice daily then to one 15mg a day then I am stopping. From what I have learned when they reformulated this one time wonder drug they turned it into aspirin. I am writing to Endo Pharmaceuticals for an explanation. This is a very expensive drug. Society is turning a blind eye toward the Chronic Pain Sufferers in their effort to control Drug Abusers. It's going to get worse I'm afraid.

I've been on this medication for years and have found that I haven't built a tolerance and it works very well for me. Fewer side effects than other opiates, too.
