Hello all, well my doc and I decided the morphine was not doing the trick. I just felt as if my pain was not being covered effectively and it (morphine cr) did not last the whole 12 hrs. Anyway my doc prescribed opana 20mg er x 12 hrs and still oxycodone for b/t. I have now been on it for 2 days. I seem to be a bit more tired on it but it is a new med and we all know with new meds its takes a bit to get used to them. My pain levels this morning when I woke were about a 6. I always have elevated pain levels in the AM (as most of you do) because of my job. I work late at night on my feet for 8-10 hrs non-stop on hard floors. So, I do expect pain. It is what it is. I usually have to take a b/t med along with my long acting when I get up to help knock my pain levels down. I still do not beleive the opana is as good a pain reliever as the methadone i was on but it has only been two days. I will say this. Switching from methadone to morphine cr was much much harder than going from morphine cr to opana. I am not having any withdrawals that I can notice. I definitly had withdrawals during the first transition. Also, with a coupon I found online the opana is only 20 bucks with my insurance. I had heard it was extremely expensive. I looked at my prescription insert and it said your insurance saved you 400 bucks. I am happy about that! So, if any of you have any experiences (good or bad or both) with opana please share. I would love to know how it does with your pain levels. I will keep in touch to let you all know how I am doing on my new medicine. P.S. I will have to tell you that I think I may have it pretty easy in that I have a great doctor. I hear some of you on here (including myself in the past with my old doc) say my doc is a ..... and my doc doesnt do this or that for me. My doc listens and always takes into account my suggestions. I really think its that fact I have never given him a reason not to trust me. I am honest with him and he with me. Anyway now I am rambling. Have a great pain free day!!
