Re: 4 Back Surgeries and Still In Pain

Hi la is long acting Opana is a synthetic morphine oxmophone medication. I like it because you don't get the highs/lows like from other meds.

Wow I've never heard of a surgeon keeping a patient that long.

Why don't you ask him about the Opana? I was on 10 mg of Percocet 4 x day and he switched me to 20 of Opana er (extended release) twice a day with Opana IR 5 mr 3 x day for break thru pain.


You would need a higher dose.
