Thanks Me! I was typing back to you last night when I had to leave the computer and never finished it. I did try my med and it's OK. I was actually surprised by how little med was is in it, but at least I can tolerate it.
Ok, as far as the Opana....yes, it was the ER and I did have some awful reactions. I do have a friend taking it though and he is fine. He never had any problem with taking it, so I wouldn't judge much by my reactions.
Anyway, I took the med and felt WONDERFUL for the first 6 hours. It was honestly the only truly pain free time I have had since surgery. Then then next "release" of med happened and it seemed if the entire rest of the dose released at the same time. I thought I was overdosing and then it took hours for the med to wear out of my system. I was shaking and my teeth were chattering, I was hot, I was cold, I was sick to my stomach, I was SOOOOOO anxious. I was doing some paraniod thing where you look from side to side like somebody is after you......NEVER again for me!!!!!
Now I'm positive this is not a normal reaction or they wouldn't prescribe this med. So many people are helped by it, but I just happen to be sensitive to something in it. That's why I was so scared to try anything with Oxy in it.....because the Opana ER is Oxymorphone and I can take the hydromorphone with no problems. I do take it, in fact, every day and now I take it with the Oxy IR. I just can't seem to get me med schedule right with all three pain meds. It would be so much easier if I could take an extended release and then just a bt med, but apparently he does not feel I can (and I wonder too after that last experience).
I hope it goes well for you!!!
