:-) Hello,close friend has a disease that causes chronic pain.was taking methadone/oxycodone combo.This worked well.most of the time.only prob was the oxycod-30s many times felt like having some w/ drawl symptoms after 8-9 hrs of sleep.at other times the oxyco only lasted 2 or 3 hrs.and now caws of all the abuse and pill mills the doc were scared to write it.and others could find out the person was on that med.and hiss pill mill was just shut dwn.and some addicts may show up at the door,and bad things have happened already like this.so doc switches meds to opana reg and opana er.hard to find but both are now available in genn form.ins dident pay for the er but did for the reg 10mg made by roxx other had to be ordered.the 10mg poana genn.was not working like he thought it should until the ER came in he had to take 4 a day.pain was not in controol,bad week.the ER came in 15mg( atva) and the real oxymorphone hcl was 15 ER worked verry well can only figure that the 10 IR realy only had 1 or 2mg in it both were verified on the med.ID site only prob is that the one that ins pays for. not good quality the 10mg and the 15ER is so new as a geen.that Ins woudent pay for it so the co-pay was not $15 but 60 cost $264.00 outch,at least pai was under controol,and a lot of the side affects were gone.Verry pleased w/ the oxymorphone Hcl15s sent a mesage to do quality check on the 10s.has anyone else gone though this crap.but the generic opana and opana ER is here. the ER comes in 7.5 and 15mg the IR comes in 5mg and 10 mg C_S only ones willing to carry,and some wlgrns may carry good luck to anyone going threw the changes.I hope they get the 10 mg IR fixed GB GL

I apologize...but I am having great trouble reading this post...Not only without paragraphs...but I'm not sure what you are asking as it's very hard to follow...

You certainly know everything about what your friend has gone through...

Could you please maybe let us know what you are asking us? We are just pain patients here...so there aren't any Dr.s...

It's nice that you care so much about your friend...is there a reason that they don't want to come online themselves to share their story...what is their pain source?

You say that their "pill mill" was shut down....I can't imagine why they would be going to a place like that...

What kind of Dr. is taking care of them now?

Again...sorry for the questions but I'm trying to understand the post...

hi snowbunny,I am the one that my friend was talking about,and thank you he is a good friend.I switched meds.live in Fla and becaws of the bad reputation of oxycodone the DEA has shut down 70% of the chronic pain clinics,about 10% were overprescribing medicine to people.I have a great MD.who actually treats people like their friend.I am very blessed to have a doc.like him. the oxymorphone hcl.10 mg. tablets seemed to only have 10 or 20% of the real medicine.The oxymorphone ER. 15mg.tabs.was a difrence of night and day.has anyone else had any expierience with the generic opana 10mg tabs.that were poor quality

I haven't taken that particular medication...but the law states that any generic has to have 100% of the same "active" ingredients which is the opiate itself....but they can be + or - 20% of the "inactive" ingredients...

The medicines fillers can be different which can cause some people to be a little more nauseous or fatigued. But it should help the same as the brand name medication.

Some people can have a mental differnce with certain meds...'placebo' effect either negatively or positively...

But just want to assure you that it's the exact same in the strength of the opiate.

I'm not sure why you are comparing the 10mg to the 15mg as the 15 is higher in medication by 25%.

You say that you have a good Dr....have you called and talked to them about this? Or contact your Pharmacy?

the 15mg is a 12 hr.dose and the 10 is every 4 to 6 hr.dose,I would think that the 10mg tab.would have worked much better than it did,thank you.I may have just been in allot more pain at the time.thanks for taking time to reply,I wasent sure about how this site was.there are some where people are not to understanding or kind,I think this one is a keeper.

I have contacted the manufacturer and ask that they do a comparison test and quality check.I have seen some reports about medication recalls due to lethal and inactive meds.thought someone else may have had the same thing happening,the generic opana is so new that some pharmacys dident even know about it.
