WOW took first pill last night and have been in a fog all day and terrible headache. Has anybody taken this before. I have heard good things about it but I just dont know . The methadone is 10 times better but my legs were blown up like balloons and I cant take any kind of water pill. Grrrrrrrr . what to do what to do

Hi razzle,
I switched from methadone (80mg a day) to Opana ER (20mg every 8 hr.) about 3 months ago. It took my body about a week to adjust and I am very glad I did! The side effects from methadone were really bothering me, hot flashes, trouble urinating, weight gain, etc. How much are you taking? I hope you have as much success as I did. Good luck!

Ah Razzle, will keep you in my prayers. I sure hope you get the benefit Tina did. Jeez, I can relate to the nasty side effects from meds, it happened so much with me thats one of the reasons my pain dr wanted me to have a pump. Hang in there.

It does take a few day's to adjust and I know what you mean about the fog I have all way's hated that part my self was the adjusting.It will get better but if not please tell your doctor about it and see what he has to say.
