Re: Urgent: need advice regarding stopping Opana ER
Wow! Umm..okay, first off stopping that dose of Opana, isn't dangerous. You have hydro in your system all day, your body won't go in to shock from lack of narcotic. It'll be uncomfortable because of the drop in amount of Narcotic, but not dangerous.
Klonopin and Xanax huh? Your being double dosed on Benzo's and at a pretty high dose at that.... You definitely shouldn't take any more Xanax to make up for the missing Klonopin, there the same drug....your body won't miss or wd from the Klonopin because it still has the Xanax....Xanax is just a stronger version of benzo than Klonopin is. Don't be shocked if the Psychiatrist you see doesn't continue prescribing both of those drugs in the amount your family Dr. back in OK was giving you. There's a reason some states require a Pdoc (psychiatrist) to RX psych meds, because M.D.'s and PCP's don't specialize in those kinds of meds and they end up doing dangerous things like double dosing patients.
For the next 8 days you'll probably have some withdrawal symptoms from the lack of Opana that can include: stomach upset/diarrhea, sweats/chills, trouble sleeping, irritability, lack of energy, increased body aches and pains, RLS, brain zaps, etc. It will be uncomfortable but it won't kill you.
The amount of Xanax your on will cover some of that and the Hydro will keep the wd symptoms down quite a bit.
