Is abusing prescription opiates just as bad as doing heroin?

My boyfriend used to take opiate pills (I think it was oxycontin but I can't remember). He used them so much that he would constantly have trouble getting the pharmacist to refill his prescriptions. He used to show the same signs of someone who used heroin... the typical "on the nod" sign. He'd frequently fall asleep while eating and while having a conversation. I suspected him of being on heroin before I realized that the pills could be having the same effect. So do these pills have almost the same effect on your body as heroin? What is different? BTW, he doesn't take these pills anymore... that I am aware of anyway. Answered by Oliva Piserchio 2 years ago.

In reality Heroin (diacetylmorphine) has an undeserved reputation. Heroin is no better or worse than the other full opioid agonists legally used for pain namely hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, Oramorph SR), oxycodone (OxyContin, Oxy IR, Percocet), fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq), oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER) and methadone (Dolophine). All of these drugs produce (more/less) the same effects as Heroin namely that they all bind to the μ-opioid receptor which is what causes analgesia (pain relief), euphoria, and other opioid effects. A number of studies have been done in IV Heroin addicts to determine if they could tell the difference between Heroin and another opioid given in an equivalent amount. The studies found that addicts could NOT distinguish IV Heroin from equivalent doses of other opioids. Not to mention that a number of prescription opioids- hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and fentanyl- are more potent than Heroin. So a smaller amount of these drugs is required to achieve the same effects as Heroin. Heroin is (just to give you an idea) about twice as potent as morphine. What is really interesting is that the effects of Heroin are from morphine. When a person uses Heroin, especially by IV, it rapidly enters the brain. Heroin then undergoes rapid deacetylation (an acetyl chemical group is removed from Heroin aka diacetylmorphine). If you just look at the name diacetylmorphine you can imagine what remains if the acetyl is removed. What remains is morphine along with other metabolites- primarily 6-MAM. All Heroin does is it more efficiently enters the brain but once it is there it breaks down into morphine and it is the morphine that produces all of its effects. Heroin only lasts a few minutes once taken. Heroin became the preferred drug among addicts since it "hits" the brain faster than morphine thus it gives a greater "rush." However if an equivalent amount of morphine is given the effects are the same. Heroin also have fewer side effects than morphine. Heroin is actually widely used legally in The United Kingdom and a number of countries like Canada have a special limited access programme to provide Heroin to people with severe intractable pain (mostly due to cancer or AIDS) that does not respond well to other medication. So yes the effects of prescription opioids like oxycodone are almost exactly the same as Heroin. Oxycodone is 1.5 times more potent than morphine so it is nearly as potent as Heroin. Even methadone maintenance programmes treat people who are addicted and physically dependent to opioids aside from Heroin. But do keep in mind that there is NOTHING inherently wrong with Heroin or any of the other opioids. The problem comes when they are misused but many hundreds of thousands of people a year take opioids and benefit greatly from them and don't misuse them. Res non per se at per usum, bona aut mala est. Nothing of itself is good or evil; only the manner of its use makes it so. Answered by Pamella Herriott 2 years ago.

Hydrocodone makes me feel speedy too. Your question is difficult to answer. I agree that opiate abuse is bad, but Tramadol is also addictive. I have been on Tramadol for years, and if I try to skip a day, I feel like death. This is my opinion on drug addiction. If you are taking pain medication that has been prescribed by a doctor, and you become addicted AT the doses prescribed, not more than the prescribed doses, then you are clinically dependent on your medication, but your not abusing your drugs. I take several different addictive drugs everyday. I know, and my doctor knows that if I ever have to stop, it will be a process of tapering down, and possibly even going to the hospital to detox. Back to your medication. My doctor has me on Tramadol(which I love by the way, it completes me, lol) and also 10 Vicoden a month for break threw pain, or in other words bad days. My whole family except my Dad is junkies. They have been over my house playing X-BOX and stole my pills before. I agree that you should never share pills. I have to hide my pills when they come over. I left a bottle of Klonopin out, and substituted the pills with laxatives and my brother and law took about 20 out of the bottle, idiot. Opiate addiction is not that bad if you and your doctor are aware of your condition and you take your prescribed doses. Answered by Collin Cora 2 years ago.

Yes, they act in more or less identical ways once inside your body. Their are differences about how fast the different drugs start acting (heroin acts much faster as its injected right into the veins) and how much of each drug is needed to get a similar high, but pretty much, yes it is every bit as 'bad.' That being said doing heroin is generally more dangerous as addicts often inject with dirty needles leading to the spread of hepatitis, HIV, or contraction of endocarditis (infection of the heart).

Does morphine come in a pill or only in a shot? and can it be prescribed to take at home?
Asked by Aracely Maixner 2 years ago.

Morphine sulfate also is administered orally or rectally. The manufacturers state that certain morphine sulfate extended-release preparations (i.e., Avinza® extended-release capsules, Kadian® extended-release capsules, Oramorph® SR extended-release tablets) can be administered without regard to food; the effect of food on the GI absorption of other morphine sulfate extended-release preparations (i.e., MS-Contin® extended-release tablets) has not been fully evaluated to date. Extended-release tablets of the drug should be swallowed intact and should not be broken, crushed, or chewed; intake of a broken, crushed, or chewed tablet may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate. The manufacturers of morphine sulfate extended-release capsules state that the capsules may be swallowed whole or the entire contents of the capsules may be sprinkled on a small amount of applesauce, at room temperature or cooler, immediately prior to administration; subdividing the contents of a capsule is not recommended. The patient should swallow the entire mixture. The beads or pellets should not be crushed, chewed, or dissolved; intake of crushed, chewed, or dissolved beads or pellets may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially fatal dose of morphine sulfate. Following administration, the patient should drink a glass of water to rinse the mouth and ensure that the beads or pellets are swallowed. The mixture of applesauce and beads or pellets should not be stored for future use. Patients receiving morphine sulfate extended-release capsules (Avinza®, Kadian®) must not consume alcoholic beverages or prescription or nonprescription preparations containing alcohol; intake of alcohol may result in rapid release of the drug from the capsules and intake of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate. Additionally, one manufacturer states that the contents of the extended-release capsules (Kadian®) should not be administered through a nasogastric tube Serious adverse events and deaths have occurred as a result of inadvertent overdosage of concentrated morphine sulfate Answered by Carrie Sandau 2 years ago.

I have a hypothetical question, because I have been considering medical marijuana. I Iive in a state where medical marijuana is illegal, how would I go about getting some? I read qualifications for medical marijuana and I meet these requirements. Does marijuana have any bad long term side affects? Please do not judge. I am not going to blindly ask my parents or doctors for this, because it is not my place to get something like this. I just want to get answers to my question. Answered by Roxane Beard 2 years ago.

A couple of things- Firstly if marijuana is illegal where you live then you can't legally use, buy, or posses it regardless of why you are using it. Also nearly all doctors will not officially condone or recommend medical marijuana use by a patient and doctors do have some legal liability if they do. Also over-the-counter pain medication is only for MILD pain, if you have a legitimate medical problem causing moderate to severe pain then only prescription medication will be able to alleviate it (OTC drugs did not work because they are useless against severe pain). If your problem is so severe why aren't you getting treatment or at least symptomatic control? With any type of pain, even in places where medical marijuana is available, it is not going to be used especially if you have only taken drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, Motrin (ibuprofen) that is like going from the most minimal to very extreme without stopping in the middle. The cornerstone of pain management is opioid use particularly the full opioid agonists including: morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MST Continus, Oramorph SR) oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Oxy-IR, Roxicet, Roxicodone, Tylox, Endocet) oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER, Numorphan) hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo, Hydromorph Contin) fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq, Fentora, Onsolis) methadone (Dolophine, Metadol, Methadose) Typically something like marijuana is used to treat pain WITH opioids, for extreme conditions, in patients refractory to opioid therapy, and especially in patients with terminal conditions (typically AIDS or cancer), cachexia, and chemotherapy induced vomiting refractory to first-line treatment. It is not really your age that is a problem, people at any age with severe pain are treated with the proper medications to control the pain. Just to give you an idea of the guidelines and conditions that medical marijuana is typically accepted these are the Health Canada regulations (this is just for generalized information) There are two categories of people who can apply to possess marihuana for medical purposes: Category 1: This category is comprised of any symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care; or the symptoms associated with the specified medical conditions, namely: Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from multiple sclerosis; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from a spinal cord injury; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from spinal cord disease; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from cancer; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from HIV/AIDS infection; Severe pain from severe forms of arthritis; or Seizures from epilepsy. Category 2: This category is for applicants who have debilitating symptom (s) of medical condition (s), other than those described in Category 1. Under Category 2, persons with debilitating symptoms can apply to obtain an Authorization to Possess dried marihuana for medical purposes, if a specialist confirms the diagnosis and that conventional treatments have failed or judged inappropriate to relieve symptoms of the medical condition. You really need to talk to your doctor and your parents. If you are in significant pain or are having any medical problems is it important to tell your doctor and get appropriate treatment. Also the best course of action is saying "doctor I'm in severe pain, how can we get it controlled?" And then let him do his job to consider, inform, and recommend options for pain control. But in the end, at least for now, you simply can't get medical marijuana and with respect if you have not taken anything except OTC medication then use of medical marijuana is not really considered appropriate. Lastly do not believe people who on are the extremes on the issue of marijuana. It is not the terrible drug some would have you believe nor is it a risk-free and perfectly benign substance. ALL drugs no matter if it is smoked, taken as a pill, injected, or is natural, semi-synthetic, or synthetic have risk. Marijuana may not have killed anyone but death is not the only risk- other things can happen. UPDATE: Just to respond to sauve4te I am hardly a "very narrow minded individual." I have not said marijuana is bad or that it should not be used however responsible doctors don't take 16 year old patients who have only taken OTC medications and then put them on marijuana. That goes against every medical guideline and common sense. Also most of the conditions marijuana may be prescribed in certain states or countries have NEVER been been proven to be effectively treated with marijuana. The states just put the few conditions proven to be treatable and then add a bunch more that typically is only supported by very little evidence. Notice how each state has different "approved" uses ranging from the proven (cachexia) and in some states, especially California and Colorado it is being prescribed for things like ADHD. Your information said "Each state has their own conditions which are medically approved uses" to me that sounds like there is no consensus. The only things marijuana is currently PROVEN to treat are for 1) AIDS-related anorexia and cachexia 2) severe nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. 3) As an adjunctive analgesic treatment in adult patients with advanced cancer who experience moderate to severe pain during the highest tolerated dose of strong opioid therapy for persistent background pain. 4) As an adjunctive treatment for the symptomatic relief of neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults. For the record I have had severe chronic pain for about half my life, I tried marijuana when I was in university and it did help my pain. I did not use more because I did not like the feeling but I assure you that I understand pain- from patients, studies, and myself. I know what being desperate for relief is like. The problem is that treatments need facts, just because many people (including myself) say marijuana helps pain is not proof. And anywhere you do the proper protocol- to use full opioid agonists as the central medication then add adjunctive treatments (hydroxyzine, orphenadrine, diazepam, clonazepam, methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, gabapentin, amitriptyline, phenobarbital, promethazine, marijuana).

Your doctor presumably thought Clonazepam would be a better choice for you than Xanax. Without reviewing the specific details of your case, I can't offer you any insight as to whether or not her reasoning was correct, but presumably at least she thought it was. If you're concerned about your current medication, you should definitely discuss this with your doctor- you should ask why that particular drug was prescribed, if there are alternatives, and why she thought this one was the best.

How does opana compare to oxycontin?
Asked by Birgit Critton 2 years ago.

In what way? Are you comparing Opana ER (oxymorphone extended-release) to OxyContin (oxycodone extended-release) or are you talking about the instant release for of Opana vs. instant release oxycodone? Both drugs are full opioid agonists indicated for moderate to severe pain when the use of an opioid is indicated. Oxymorphone, the opioid in Opana, is twice as potent as oxycodone. Some oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone so a very small amount of the effects of oxycodone is from oxymorphone. Opana ER has a better reputation for lasting the full 12hrs compared to OxyContin which some people need to take a bit more frequently. Contrary to what one person wrote oxycodone is NOT more addictive than oxymorphone. Full opioid agonists have the same potential for abuse and dependence. Since Opana is fairly new and not as widely prescribed as OxyContin it has not been abused as often but they do have the same abuse potential. However when taken for a legitimate problem the risk of abuse or dependence to any opioid is very small. Both drugs are still only available as brand name drugs so they are both expensive. However two extended release opioids- MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release) and Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal) are available as generics. Basically everyone does differently with opioids- some people respond well the Opana and have few side effects, some don't do well with Opana at all but may do well with OxyContin. In general both drugs are well tolerated and highly effective. I have personally taken both but my experience is really irrelevant and won't really help. Some guidelines recommend that a morphine drug be first used and if it is not well tolerated a drug like OxyContin should be used. Other long acting opioids available in The United States include MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release), Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal), BuTrans (buprenorphine transdermal), Kadian (morphine sulfate extended-release), Avinza (morphine sulfate extended-release), Oramorph SR (morphine sulfate extended-release), Exalgo (hydromorphone extended-release), and Embeda (morphine sulfate/naltrexone). Dolophine (methadone) is also used, it does not come in an extended-release form but it works longer than other opioids and is typically taken every 8-12hrs. There is also Ultram ER (tramadol extended-release) however tramadol is NOT a full opioid agonist and it is approved for moderate to moderately severe pain. Answered by Mike Alva 2 years ago.

Oxycontin is a form of time released OXYCODONE, not morphine. You probably already know that, by looking at the medicine bottle, but others may think it's actually morpine based on the above poster's response. If you're hurt enough to get a prescription for 20 mg's of oxycodone, you should probably be on the couch resting, anyways. There's a lot of factors, most likely you will feel a little buzz for the first few days. I'd avoid operating a vehicle for the first day to make sure you know how the medication affects you.

Since Darvocet has been pulled off of the market, what will doctors replace it with?
I was previously prescribed Darvocet for my back pain, but now that it has been pulled off of the market, I was wondering what my doctors might replace it with. I am also prescribed Ultram (Tramadol). Asked by Sammie Mcmillion 2 years ago.

Darvocet is indicated for the relief of mild to moderate pain and I don't think any other opioids have the same indication, for example Tylenol with Codeine is indicated for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain. I would imagine tramadol, codeine, and hydrocodone (perhaps even pentazocine to some extent) will become the preferred drugs. The other issues is that propoxyphene is a federally controlled schedule IV substance, the same as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), phenobarbital, and Adipex-P (phentermine). Most other opioids are at a higher level of control, due to a higher addictive potential, and from all the American doctors I have spoken with they prefer using schedule III or IV opioids when possible. Hydrocodone and codeine are both schedule III and tramadol is not a controlled substance. Even now hydrocodone is the most prescribed drug in The United States and codeine has fallen somewhat out of favour. There is also the possibility that many of the drugs with hydrocodone like Vicodin may be removed from the market, which a FDA committee did recommend due to the high levels of acetaminophen. There are a lot of opioids in the US so I am sure you and your doctor can find a something good List of opioids: Weak to intermediate opioids: Codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Prontalgine Codeine Contin) Tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Zydol, Tramacet, Contramal, Tramal, Tridural, Zytram XL) Pentazocine (Talacen, Talwin NX) Dihydrocodeine (Codhydrine, Panlor DC, Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicoprofen, Ibudone, Zydone, Xodol, Maxidone) Full opioid agonists: Morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MOS-SR, M.O.S., MXL Capsules, MST Continuous, Oramorph SR, Embeda) Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Oxy-IR, Supeudol, OxyNorm, Magnacet, Roxicet, Tylox, Combunox, Endocet) Oxymorphone (Opana) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo) Fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq) Pethidine/meperidine (Demerol) Methadone (Dolophine) Levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran, Dromoran) Tapentadol (Nucynta) Answered by Tyree Liebherr 2 years ago.

Probably nothing. Tramadol is a NSAID pain reliever. Depending on your problem, they may just leave you with that. Darvocet is in the same class with Codeine (synthetic), so they might give you Vicoden. Many times when people come into the ER for back pain, they go home with Motrin & Vicoden, if they send them home with a Rx at all. Answered by Ela Rients 2 years ago.

Darvocet was pretty much worthless for pain relief anyway. It had a LOT of hidden dangers, including patient deaths, without much to recommend it for relieving pain. There are much better/safer/effective alternatives today, including Vicodin. Answered by Kesha Jamin 2 years ago.

It's no great loss. Propoxyphene isn't as strong as acetaminophen, anyway, and most people would have been better served by taking a couple of Tylenol along with a couple of Advil. There's still plenty of codeine and hydrocodone, et. al.. Answered by Yolanda Bomkamp 2 years ago.

My boyfriend used to take opiate pills (I think it was oxycontin but I can't remember). He used them so much that he would constantly have trouble getting the pharmacist to refill his prescriptions. He used to show the same signs of someone who used heroin... the typical "on the nod" sign. He'd frequently fall asleep while eating and while having a conversation. I suspected him of being on heroin before I realized that the pills could be having the same effect. So do these pills have almost the same effect on your body as heroin? What is different? BTW, he doesn't take these pills anymore... that I am aware of anyway. Answered by Latoyia Nichol 2 years ago.

In reality Heroin (diacetylmorphine) has an undeserved reputation. Heroin is no better or worse than the other full opioid agonists legally used for pain namely hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, Oramorph SR), oxycodone (OxyContin, Oxy IR, Percocet), fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq), oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER) and methadone (Dolophine). All of these drugs produce (more/less) the same effects as Heroin namely that they all bind to the μ-opioid receptor which is what causes analgesia (pain relief), euphoria, and other opioid effects. A number of studies have been done in IV Heroin addicts to determine if they could tell the difference between Heroin and another opioid given in an equivalent amount. The studies found that addicts could NOT distinguish IV Heroin from equivalent doses of other opioids. Not to mention that a number of prescription opioids- hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and fentanyl- are more potent than Heroin. So a smaller amount of these drugs is required to achieve the same effects as Heroin. Heroin is (just to give you an idea) about twice as potent as morphine. What is really interesting is that the effects of Heroin are from morphine. When a person uses Heroin, especially by IV, it rapidly enters the brain. Heroin then undergoes rapid deacetylation (an acetyl chemical group is removed from Heroin aka diacetylmorphine). If you just look at the name diacetylmorphine you can imagine what remains if the acetyl is removed. What remains is morphine along with other metabolites- primarily 6-MAM. All Heroin does is it more efficiently enters the brain but once it is there it breaks down into morphine and it is the morphine that produces all of its effects. Heroin only lasts a few minutes once taken. Heroin became the preferred drug among addicts since it "hits" the brain faster than morphine thus it gives a greater "rush." However if an equivalent amount of morphine is given the effects are the same. Heroin also have fewer side effects than morphine. Heroin is actually widely used legally in The United Kingdom and a number of countries like Canada have a special limited access programme to provide Heroin to people with severe intractable pain (mostly due to cancer or AIDS) that does not respond well to other medication. So yes the effects of prescription opioids like oxycodone are almost exactly the same as Heroin. Oxycodone is 1.5 times more potent than morphine so it is nearly as potent as Heroin. Even methadone maintenance programmes treat people who are addicted and physically dependent to opioids aside from Heroin. But do keep in mind that there is NOTHING inherently wrong with Heroin or any of the other opioids. The problem comes when they are misused but many hundreds of thousands of people a year take opioids and benefit greatly from them and don't misuse them.

Hydrocodone makes me feel speedy too. Your question is difficult to answer. I agree that opiate abuse is bad, but Tramadol is also addictive.

I am not going to blindly ask my parents or doctors for this, because it is not my place to get something like this. I just want to get answers to my question. Answered by Ebonie Tomasko 2 years ago.

A couple of things- Firstly if marijuana is illegal where you live then you can't legally use, buy, or posses it regardless of why you are using it. Also nearly all doctors will not officially condone or recommend medical marijuana use by a patient and doctors do have some legal liability if they do. Also over-the-counter pain medication is only for MILD pain, if you have a legitimate medical problem causing moderate to severe pain then only prescription medication will be able to alleviate it (OTC drugs did not work because they are useless against severe pain). If your problem is so severe why aren't you getting treatment or at least symptomatic control? With any type of pain, even in places where medical marijuana is available, it is not going to be used especially if you have only taken drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, Motrin (ibuprofen) that is like going from the most minimal to very extreme without stopping in the middle. The cornerstone of pain management is opioid use particularly the full opioid agonists including: morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MST Continus, Oramorph SR) oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Oxy-IR, Roxicet, Roxicodone, Tylox, Endocet) oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER, Numorphan) hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo, Hydromorph Contin) fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq, Fentora, Onsolis) methadone (Dolophine, Metadol, Methadose) Typically something like marijuana is used to treat pain WITH opioids, for extreme conditions, in patients refractory to opioid therapy, and especially in patients with terminal conditions (typically AIDS or cancer), cachexia, and chemotherapy induced vomiting refractory to first-line treatment. It is not really your age that is a problem, people at any age with severe pain are treated with the proper medications to control the pain. Just to give you an idea of the guidelines and conditions that medical marijuana is typically accepted these are the Health Canada regulations (this is just for generalized information) There are two categories of people who can apply to possess marihuana for medical purposes: Category 1: This category is comprised of any symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care; or the symptoms associated with the specified medical conditions, namely: Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from multiple sclerosis; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from a spinal cord injury; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from spinal cord disease; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from cancer; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from HIV/AIDS infection; Severe pain from severe forms of arthritis; or Seizures from epilepsy. Category 2: This category is for applicants who have debilitating symptom (s) of medical condition (s), other than those described in Category 1. Under Category 2, persons with debilitating symptoms can apply to obtain an Authorization to Possess dried marihuana for medical purposes, if a specialist confirms the diagnosis and that conventional treatments have failed or judged inappropriate to relieve symptoms of the medical condition. You really need to talk to your doctor and your parents. If you are in significant pain or are having any medical problems is it important to tell your doctor and get appropriate treatment. Also the best course of action is saying "doctor I'm in severe pain, how can we get it controlled?" And then let him do his job to consider, inform, and recommend options for pain control. But in the end, at least for now, you simply can't get medical marijuana and with respect if you have not taken anything except OTC medication then use of medical marijuana is not really considered appropriate. Lastly do not believe people who on are the extremes on the issue of marijuana. It is not the terrible drug some would have you believe nor is it a risk-free and perfectly benign substance. ALL drugs no matter if it is smoked, taken as a pill, injected, or is natural, semi-synthetic, or synthetic have risk. Marijuana may not have killed anyone but death is not the only risk- other things can happen. UPDATE: Just to respond to sauve4te I am hardly a "very narrow minded individual." I have not said marijuana is bad or that it should not be used however responsible doctors don't take 16 year old patients who have only taken OTC medications and then put them on marijuana. That goes against every medical guideline and common sense. Also most of the conditions marijuana may be prescribed in certain states or countries have NEVER been been proven to be effectively treated with marijuana. The states just put the few conditions proven to be treatable and then add a bunch more that typically is only supported by very little evidence. Notice how each state has different "approved" uses ranging from the proven (cachexia) and in some states, especially California and Colorado it is being prescribed for things like ADHD. Your information said "Each state has their own conditions which are medically approved uses" to me that sounds like there is no consensus. The only things marijuana is currently PROVEN to treat are for 1) AIDS-related anorexia and cachexia 2) severe nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. 3) As an adjunctive analgesic treatment in adult patients with advanced cancer who experience moderate to severe pain during the highest tolerated dose of strong opioid therapy for persistent background pain. 4) As an adjunctive treatment for the symptomatic relief of neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults. For the record I have had severe chronic pain for about half my life, I tried marijuana when I was in university and it did help my pain. I did not use more because I did not like the feeling but I assure you that I understand pain- from patients, studies, and myself. I know what being desperate for relief is like. The problem is that treatments need facts, just because many people (including myself) say marijuana helps pain is not proof. And anywhere you do the proper protocol- to use full opioid agonists as the central medication then add adjunctive treatments (hydroxyzine, orphenadrine, diazepam, clonazepam, methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, gabapentin, amitriptyline, phenobarbital, promethazine, marijuana).

Your doctor presumably thought Clonazepam would be a better choice for you than Xanax. Without reviewing the specific details of your case, I can't offer you any insight as to whether or not her reasoning was correct, but presumably at least she thought it was. If you're concerned about your current medication, you should definitely discuss this with your doctor- you should ask why that particular drug was prescribed, if there are alternatives, and why she thought this one was the best.

How does opana compare to oxycontin?
Asked by Cicely Shawnee 2 years ago.

In what way? Are you comparing Opana ER (oxymorphone extended-release) to OxyContin (oxycodone extended-release) or are you talking about the instant release for of Opana vs. instant release oxycodone? Both drugs are full opioid agonists indicated for moderate to severe pain when the use of an opioid is indicated. Oxymorphone, the opioid in Opana, is twice as potent as oxycodone. Some oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone so a very small amount of the effects of oxycodone is from oxymorphone. Opana ER has a better reputation for lasting the full 12hrs compared to OxyContin which some people need to take a bit more frequently. Contrary to what one person wrote oxycodone is NOT more addictive than oxymorphone. Full opioid agonists have the same potential for abuse and dependence. Since Opana is fairly new and not as widely prescribed as OxyContin it has not been abused as often but they do have the same abuse potential. However when taken for a legitimate problem the risk of abuse or dependence to any opioid is very small. Both drugs are still only available as brand name drugs so they are both expensive. However two extended release opioids- MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release) and Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal) are available as generics. Basically everyone does differently with opioids- some people respond well the Opana and have few side effects, some don't do well with Opana at all but may do well with OxyContin. In general both drugs are well tolerated and highly effective. I have personally taken both but my experience is really irrelevant and won't really help. Some guidelines recommend that a morphine drug be first used and if it is not well tolerated a drug like OxyContin should be used. Other long acting opioids available in The United States include MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release), Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal), BuTrans (buprenorphine transdermal), Kadian (morphine sulfate extended-release), Avinza (morphine sulfate extended-release), Oramorph SR (morphine sulfate extended-release), Exalgo (hydromorphone extended-release), and Embeda (morphine sulfate/naltrexone). Dolophine (methadone) is also used, it does not come in an extended-release form but it works longer than other opioids and is typically taken every 8-12hrs. There is also Ultram ER (tramadol extended-release) however tramadol is NOT a full opioid agonist and it is approved for moderate to moderately severe pain. Answered by Latarsha Legore 2 years ago.

Oxycontin is a form of time released OXYCODONE, not morphine. You probably already know that, by looking at the medicine bottle, but others may think it's actually morpine based on the above poster's response. If you're hurt enough to get a prescription for 20 mg's of oxycodone, you should probably be on the couch resting, anyways. There's a lot of factors, most likely you will feel a little buzz for the first few days. I'd avoid operating a vehicle for the first day to make sure you know how the medication affects you.

Since Darvocet has been pulled off of the market, what will doctors replace it with?
I was previously prescribed Darvocet for my back pain, but now that it has been pulled off of the market, I was wondering what my doctors might replace it with. I am also prescribed Ultram (Tramadol). Asked by Isabelle Bisom 2 years ago.

Darvocet is indicated for the relief of mild to moderate pain and I don't think any other opioids have the same indication, for example Tylenol with Codeine is indicated for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain. I would imagine tramadol, codeine, and hydrocodone (perhaps even pentazocine to some extent) will become the preferred drugs. The other issues is that propoxyphene is a federally controlled schedule IV substance, the same as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), phenobarbital, and Adipex-P (phentermine). Most other opioids are at a higher level of control, due to a higher addictive potential, and from all the American doctors I have spoken with they prefer using schedule III or IV opioids when possible. Hydrocodone and codeine are both schedule III and tramadol is not a controlled substance. Even now hydrocodone is the most prescribed drug in The United States and codeine has fallen somewhat out of favour. There is also the possibility that many of the drugs with hydrocodone like Vicodin may be removed from the market, which a FDA committee did recommend due to the high levels of acetaminophen. There are a lot of opioids in the US so I am sure you and your doctor can find a something good List of opioids: Weak to intermediate opioids: Codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Prontalgine Codeine Contin) Tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Zydol, Tramacet, Contramal, Tramal, Tridural, Zytram XL) Pentazocine (Talacen, Talwin NX) Dihydrocodeine (Codhydrine, Panlor DC, Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicoprofen, Ibudone, Zydone, Xodol, Maxidone) Full opioid agonists: Morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MOS-SR, M.O.S., MXL Capsules, MST Continuous, Oramorph SR, Embeda) Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Oxy-IR, Supeudol, OxyNorm, Magnacet, Roxicet, Tylox, Combunox, Endocet) Oxymorphone (Opana) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo) Fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq) Pethidine/meperidine (Demerol) Methadone (Dolophine) Levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran, Dromoran) Tapentadol (Nucynta) Answered by Alan Brougham 2 years ago.

Answered by Shay Nase 2 years ago.

Probably nothing. Tramadol is a NSAID pain reliever. Depending on your problem, they may just leave you with that. Darvocet is in the same class with Codeine (synthetic), so they might give you Vicoden. Many times when people come into the ER for back pain, they go home with Motrin & Vicoden, if they send them home with a Rx at all. Answered by Renetta Sis 2 years ago.

Darvocet was pretty much worthless for pain relief anyway. It had a LOT of hidden dangers, including patient deaths, without much to recommend it for relieving pain. There are much better/safer/effective alternatives today, including Vicodin. Answered by Georgianna Hamrick 2 years ago.

It's no great loss. Propoxyphene isn't as strong as acetaminophen, anyway, and most people would have been better served by taking a couple of Tylenol along with a couple of Advil. There's still plenty of codeine and hydrocodone, et. al.. Answered by Lael Acock 2 years ago.

My boyfriend used to take opiate pills (I think it was oxycontin but I can't remember). He used them so much that he would constantly have trouble getting the pharmacist to refill his prescriptions. He used to show the same signs of someone who used heroin... the typical "on the nod" sign. He'd frequently fall asleep while eating and while having a conversation. I suspected him of being on heroin before I realized that the pills could be having the same effect. So do these pills have almost the same effect on your body as heroin? What is different? BTW, he doesn't take these pills anymore... that I am aware of anyway. Answered by Esta Zephier 2 years ago.

In reality Heroin (diacetylmorphine) has an undeserved reputation. Heroin is no better or worse than the other full opioid agonists legally used for pain namely hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, Oramorph SR), oxycodone (OxyContin, Oxy IR, Percocet), fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq), oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER) and methadone (Dolophine). All of these drugs produce (more/less) the same effects as Heroin namely that they all bind to the μ-opioid receptor which is what causes analgesia (pain relief), euphoria, and other opioid effects. A number of studies have been done in IV Heroin addicts to determine if they could tell the difference between Heroin and another opioid given in an equivalent amount. The studies found that addicts could NOT distinguish IV Heroin from equivalent doses of other opioids. Not to mention that a number of prescription opioids- hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and fentanyl- are more potent than Heroin. So a smaller amount of these drugs is required to achieve the same effects as Heroin. Heroin is (just to give you an idea) about twice as potent as morphine. What is really interesting is that the effects of Heroin are from morphine. When a person uses Heroin, especially by IV, it rapidly enters the brain. Heroin then undergoes rapid deacetylation (an acetyl chemical group is removed from Heroin aka diacetylmorphine). If you just look at the name diacetylmorphine you can imagine what remains if the acetyl is removed. What remains is morphine along with other metabolites- primarily 6-MAM. All Heroin does is it more efficiently enters the brain but once it is there it breaks down into morphine and it is the morphine that produces all of its effects. Heroin only lasts a few minutes once taken. Heroin became the preferred drug among addicts since it "hits" the brain faster than morphine thus it gives a greater "rush." However if an equivalent amount of morphine is given the effects are the same. Heroin also have fewer side effects than morphine. Heroin is actually widely used legally in The United Kingdom and a number of countries like Canada have a special limited access programme to provide Heroin to people with severe intractable pain (mostly due to cancer or AIDS) that does not respond well to other medication. So yes the effects of prescription opioids like oxycodone are almost exactly the same as Heroin. Oxycodone is 1.5 times more potent than morphine so it is nearly as potent as Heroin. Even methadone maintenance programmes treat people who are addicted and physically dependent to opioids aside from Heroin. But do keep in mind that there is NOTHING inherently wrong with Heroin or any of the other opioids. The problem comes when they are misused but many hundreds of thousands of people a year take opioids and benefit greatly from them and don't misuse them. Res non per se at per usum, bona aut mala est. Nothing of itself is good or evil; only the manner of its use makes it so. Answered by Lilla Salvitti 2 years ago.

Hydrocodone makes me feel speedy too. Your question is difficult to answer. I agree that opiate abuse is bad, but Tramadol is also addictive. I have been on Tramadol for years, and if I try to skip a day, I feel like death. This is my opinion on drug addiction. If you are taking pain medication that has been prescribed by a doctor, and you become addicted AT the doses prescribed, not more than the prescribed doses, then you are clinically dependent on your medication, but your not abusing your drugs. I take several different addictive drugs everyday. I know, and my doctor knows that if I ever have to stop, it will be a process of tapering down, and possibly even going to the hospital to detox. Back to your medication. My doctor has me on Tramadol(which I love by the way, it completes me, lol) and also 10 Vicoden a month for break threw pain, or in other words bad days. My whole family except my Dad is junkies. They have been over my house playing X-BOX and stole my pills before. I agree that you should never share pills. I have to hide my pills when they come over. I left a bottle of Klonopin out, and substituted the pills with laxatives and my brother and law took about 20 out of the bottle, idiot. Opiate addiction is not that bad if you and your doctor are aware of your condition and you take your prescribed doses. Answered by Lavonda Burba 2 years ago.

Yes, they act in more or less identical ways once inside your body. Their are differences about how fast the different drugs start acting (heroin acts much faster as its injected right into the veins) and how much of each drug is needed to get a similar high, but pretty much, yes it is every bit as 'bad.'

Extended-release tablets of the drug should be swallowed intact and should not be broken, crushed, or chewed; intake of a broken, crushed, or chewed tablet may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate. The manufacturers of morphine sulfate extended-release capsules state that the capsules may be swallowed whole or the entire contents of the capsules may be sprinkled on a small amount of applesauce, at room temperature or cooler, immediately prior to administration; subdividing the contents of a capsule is not recommended. The patient should swallow the entire mixture. The beads or pellets should not be crushed, chewed, or dissolved; intake of crushed, chewed, or dissolved beads or pellets may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially fatal dose of morphine sulfate. Following administration, the patient should drink a glass of water to rinse the mouth and ensure that the beads or pellets are swallowed. The mixture of applesauce and beads or pellets should not be stored for future use. Patients receiving morphine sulfate extended-release capsules (Avinza®, Kadian®) must not consume alcoholic beverages or prescription or nonprescription preparations containing alcohol; intake of alcohol may result in rapid release of the drug from the capsules and intake of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate.

I am not going to blindly ask my parents or doctors for this, because it is not my place to get something like this. I just want to get answers to my question. Answered by Shavon Milles 2 years ago.

A couple of things- Firstly if marijuana is illegal where you live then you can't legally use, buy, or posses it regardless of why you are using it. Also nearly all doctors will not officially condone or recommend medical marijuana use by a patient and doctors do have some legal liability if they do. Also over-the-counter pain medication is only for MILD pain, if you have a legitimate medical problem causing moderate to severe pain then only prescription medication will be able to alleviate it (OTC drugs did not work because they are useless against severe pain). If your problem is so severe why aren't you getting treatment or at least symptomatic control? With any type of pain, even in places where medical marijuana is available, it is not going to be used especially if you have only taken drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, Motrin (ibuprofen) that is like going from the most minimal to very extreme without stopping in the middle. The cornerstone of pain management is opioid use particularly the full opioid agonists including: morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MST Continus, Oramorph SR) oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Oxy-IR, Roxicet, Roxicodone, Tylox, Endocet) oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER, Numorphan) hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo, Hydromorph Contin) fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq, Fentora, Onsolis) methadone (Dolophine, Metadol, Methadose) Typically something like marijuana is used to treat pain WITH opioids, for extreme conditions, in patients refractory to opioid therapy, and especially in patients with terminal conditions (typically AIDS or cancer), cachexia, and chemotherapy induced vomiting refractory to first-line treatment. It is not really your age that is a problem, people at any age with severe pain are treated with the proper medications to control the pain. Just to give you an idea of the guidelines and conditions that medical marijuana is typically accepted these are the Health Canada regulations (this is just for generalized information) There are two categories of people who can apply to possess marihuana for medical purposes: Category 1: This category is comprised of any symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care; or the symptoms associated with the specified medical conditions, namely: Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from multiple sclerosis; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from a spinal cord injury; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from spinal cord disease; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from cancer; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from HIV/AIDS infection; Severe pain from severe forms of arthritis; or Seizures from epilepsy. Category 2: This category is for applicants who have debilitating symptom (s) of medical condition (s), other than those described in Category 1. Under Category 2, persons with debilitating symptoms can apply to obtain an Authorization to Possess dried marihuana for medical purposes, if a specialist confirms the diagnosis and that conventional treatments have failed or judged inappropriate to relieve symptoms of the medical condition. You really need to talk to your doctor and your parents. If you are in significant pain or are having any medical problems is it important to tell your doctor and get appropriate treatment. Also the best course of action is saying "doctor I'm in severe pain, how can we get it controlled?" And then let him do his job to consider, inform, and recommend options for pain control. But in the end, at least for now, you simply can't get medical marijuana and with respect if you have not taken anything except OTC medication then use of medical marijuana is not really considered appropriate. Lastly do not believe people who on are the extremes on the issue of marijuana. It is not the terrible drug some would have you believe nor is it a risk-free and perfectly benign substance. ALL drugs no matter if it is smoked, taken as a pill, injected, or is natural, semi-synthetic, or synthetic have risk. Marijuana may not have killed anyone but death is not the only risk- other things can happen. UPDATE: Just to respond to sauve4te I am hardly a "very narrow minded individual." I have not said marijuana is bad or that it should not be used however responsible doctors don't take 16 year old patients who have only taken OTC medications and then put them on marijuana. That goes against every medical guideline and common sense. Also most of the conditions marijuana may be prescribed in certain states or countries have NEVER been been proven to be effectively treated with marijuana. The states just put the few conditions proven to be treatable and then add a bunch more that typically is only supported by very little evidence. Notice how each state has different "approved" uses ranging from the proven (cachexia) and in some states, especially California and Colorado it is being prescribed for things like ADHD. Your information said "Each state has their own conditions which are medically approved uses" to me that sounds like there is no consensus. The only things marijuana is currently PROVEN to treat are for 1) AIDS-related anorexia and cachexia 2) severe nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. 3) As an adjunctive analgesic treatment in adult patients with advanced cancer who experience moderate to severe pain during the highest tolerated dose of strong opioid therapy for persistent background pain. 4) As an adjunctive treatment for the symptomatic relief of neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults. For the record I have had severe chronic pain for about half my life, I tried marijuana when I was in university and it did help my pain. I did not use more because I did not like the feeling but I assure you that I understand pain- from patients, studies, and myself. I know what being desperate for relief is like. The problem is that treatments need facts, just because many people (including myself) say marijuana helps pain is not proof. And anywhere you do the proper protocol- to use full opioid agonists as the central medication then add adjunctive treatments (hydroxyzine, orphenadrine, diazepam, clonazepam, methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, gabapentin, amitriptyline, phenobarbital, promethazine, marijuana).

Your doctor presumably thought Clonazepam would be a better choice for you than Xanax. Without reviewing the specific details of your case, I can't offer you any insight as to whether or not her reasoning was correct, but presumably at least she thought it was. If you're concerned about your current medication, you should definitely discuss this with your doctor- you should ask why that particular drug was prescribed, if there are alternatives, and why she thought this one was the best.

Clonazepam lasts longer but Xanax packs a more powerful punch initially. As for pain meds, its kinda hard to get Oxycontin prescribed, but you never know. I take Clonazepam by the way, and it works very well. Answered by Herschel Boucaud 2 years ago.

How does opana compare to oxycontin?
Asked by Bennie Krapf 2 years ago.

In what way? Are you comparing Opana ER (oxymorphone extended-release) to OxyContin (oxycodone extended-release) or are you talking about the instant release for of Opana vs. instant release oxycodone? Both drugs are full opioid agonists indicated for moderate to severe pain when the use of an opioid is indicated. Oxymorphone, the opioid in Opana, is twice as potent as oxycodone. Some oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone so a very small amount of the effects of oxycodone is from oxymorphone. Opana ER has a better reputation for lasting the full 12hrs compared to OxyContin which some people need to take a bit more frequently. Contrary to what one person wrote oxycodone is NOT more addictive than oxymorphone. Full opioid agonists have the same potential for abuse and dependence. Since Opana is fairly new and not as widely prescribed as OxyContin it has not been abused as often but they do have the same abuse potential. However when taken for a legitimate problem the risk of abuse or dependence to any opioid is very small. Both drugs are still only available as brand name drugs so they are both expensive. However two extended release opioids- MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release) and Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal) are available as generics. Basically everyone does differently with opioids- some people respond well the Opana and have few side effects, some don't do well with Opana at all but may do well with OxyContin. In general both drugs are well tolerated and highly effective. I have personally taken both but my experience is really irrelevant and won't really help. Some guidelines recommend that a morphine drug be first used and if it is not well tolerated a drug like OxyContin should be used. Other long acting opioids available in The United States include MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release), Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal), BuTrans (buprenorphine transdermal), Kadian (morphine sulfate extended-release), Avinza (morphine sulfate extended-release), Oramorph SR (morphine sulfate extended-release), Exalgo (hydromorphone extended-release), and Embeda (morphine sulfate/naltrexone). Dolophine (methadone) is also used, it does not come in an extended-release form but it works longer than other opioids and is typically taken every 8-12hrs. There is also Ultram ER (tramadol extended-release) however tramadol is NOT a full opioid agonist and it is approved for moderate to moderately severe pain. Answered by Jada Zerkle 2 years ago.

Oxycontin is a form of time released OXYCODONE, not morphine. You probably already know that, by looking at the medicine bottle, but others may think it's actually morpine based on the above poster's response. If you're hurt enough to get a prescription for 20 mg's of oxycodone, you should probably be on the couch resting, anyways. There's a lot of factors, most likely you will feel a little buzz for the first few days. I'd avoid operating a vehicle for the first day to make sure you know how the medication affects you.

Since Darvocet has been pulled off of the market, what will doctors replace it with?
I was previously prescribed Darvocet for my back pain, but now that it has been pulled off of the market, I was wondering what my doctors might replace it with. I am also prescribed Ultram (Tramadol). Asked by Garry Anthes 2 years ago.

Darvocet is indicated for the relief of mild to moderate pain and I don't think any other opioids have the same indication, for example Tylenol with Codeine is indicated for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain. I would imagine tramadol, codeine, and hydrocodone (perhaps even pentazocine to some extent) will become the preferred drugs. The other issues is that propoxyphene is a federally controlled schedule IV substance, the same as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), phenobarbital, and Adipex-P (phentermine). Most other opioids are at a higher level of control, due to a higher addictive potential, and from all the American doctors I have spoken with they prefer using schedule III or IV opioids when possible. Hydrocodone and codeine are both schedule III and tramadol is not a controlled substance. Even now hydrocodone is the most prescribed drug in The United States and codeine has fallen somewhat out of favour. There is also the possibility that many of the drugs with hydrocodone like Vicodin may be removed from the market, which a FDA committee did recommend due to the high levels of acetaminophen. There are a lot of opioids in the US so I am sure you and your doctor can find a something good List of opioids: Weak to intermediate opioids: Codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Prontalgine Codeine Contin) Tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Zydol, Tramacet, Contramal, Tramal, Tridural, Zytram XL) Pentazocine (Talacen, Talwin NX) Dihydrocodeine (Codhydrine, Panlor DC, Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicoprofen, Ibudone, Zydone, Xodol, Maxidone) Full opioid agonists: Morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MOS-SR, M.O.S., MXL Capsules, MST Continuous, Oramorph SR, Embeda) Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Oxy-IR, Supeudol, OxyNorm, Magnacet, Roxicet, Tylox, Combunox, Endocet) Oxymorphone (Opana) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo) Fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq) Pethidine/meperidine (Demerol) Methadone (Dolophine) Levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran, Dromoran) Tapentadol (Nucynta) Answered by Ginette Mcburrows 2 years ago.

my husband and i took hydrocodone for many years and did not get addicted, as we used it when laying down didn't help. i supply of 30 of them lasted me four months. but then i got allergic to codeine. my doctor switched me to darvocet a few months ago. now that it has been pulled off the market our doctor switched me to talwin. my husband can still take hydrocodone. does anyone know how talwin com,pares in pain relief to hydrocodone? by the way, i had been taking hydrocodone for so long that the darvocet worked better than it. Answered by Deon Golia 2 years ago.

Probably nothing. Tramadol is a NSAID pain reliever. Depending on your problem, they may just leave you with that. Darvocet is in the same class with Codeine (synthetic), so they might give you Vicoden. Many times when people come into the ER for back pain, they go home with Motrin & Vicoden, if they send them home with a Rx at all. Answered by Summer Ogram 2 years ago.

Darvocet was pretty much worthless for pain relief anyway. It had a LOT of hidden dangers, including patient deaths, without much to recommend it for relieving pain. There are much better/safer/effective alternatives today, including Vicodin. Answered by Samuel Beres 2 years ago.

It's no great loss. Propoxyphene isn't as strong as acetaminophen, anyway, and most people would have been better served by taking a couple of Tylenol along with a couple of Advil. There's still plenty of codeine and hydrocodone, et. al.. Answered by Gia Cassella 2 years ago.

My boyfriend used to take opiate pills (I think it was oxycontin but I can't remember). He used them so much that he would constantly have trouble getting the pharmacist to refill his prescriptions. He used to show the same signs of someone who used heroin... the typical "on the nod" sign. He'd frequently fall asleep while eating and while having a conversation. I suspected him of being on heroin before I realized that the pills could be having the same effect. So do these pills have almost the same effect on your body as heroin? What is different? BTW, he doesn't take these pills anymore... that I am aware of anyway. Answered by Erwin Strose 2 years ago.

In reality Heroin (diacetylmorphine) has an undeserved reputation. Heroin is no better or worse than the other full opioid agonists legally used for pain namely hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, Oramorph SR), oxycodone (OxyContin, Oxy IR, Percocet), fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq), oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER) and methadone (Dolophine). All of these drugs produce (more/less) the same effects as Heroin namely that they all bind to the μ-opioid receptor which is what causes analgesia (pain relief), euphoria, and other opioid effects. A number of studies have been done in IV Heroin addicts to determine if they could tell the difference between Heroin and another opioid given in an equivalent amount. The studies found that addicts could NOT distinguish IV Heroin from equivalent doses of other opioids. Not to mention that a number of prescription opioids- hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and fentanyl- are more potent than Heroin. So a smaller amount of these drugs is required to achieve the same effects as Heroin. Heroin is (just to give you an idea) about twice as potent as morphine. What is really interesting is that the effects of Heroin are from morphine. When a person uses Heroin, especially by IV, it rapidly enters the brain. Heroin then undergoes rapid deacetylation (an acetyl chemical group is removed from Heroin aka diacetylmorphine). If you just look at the name diacetylmorphine you can imagine what remains if the acetyl is removed. What remains is morphine along with other metabolites- primarily 6-MAM. All Heroin does is it more efficiently enters the brain but once it is there it breaks down into morphine and it is the morphine that produces all of its effects. Heroin only lasts a few minutes once taken. Heroin became the preferred drug among addicts since it "hits" the brain faster than morphine thus it gives a greater "rush." However if an equivalent amount of morphine is given the effects are the same. Heroin also have fewer side effects than morphine. Heroin is actually widely used legally in The United Kingdom and a number of countries like Canada have a special limited access programme to provide Heroin to people with severe intractable pain (mostly due to cancer or AIDS) that does not respond well to other medication. So yes the effects of prescription opioids like oxycodone are almost exactly the same as Heroin. Oxycodone is 1.5 times more potent than morphine so it is nearly as potent as Heroin. Even methadone maintenance programmes treat people who are addicted and physically dependent to opioids aside from Heroin. But do keep in mind that there is NOTHING inherently wrong with Heroin or any of the other opioids. The problem comes when they are misused but many hundreds of thousands of people a year take opioids and benefit greatly from them and don't misuse them. Res non per se at per usum, bona aut mala est. Nothing of itself is good or evil; only the manner of its use makes it so. Answered by Natalya Rode 2 years ago.

Hydrocodone makes me feel speedy too. Your question is difficult to answer. I agree that opiate abuse is bad, but Tramadol is also addictive. I have been on Tramadol for years, and if I try to skip a day, I feel like death. This is my opinion on drug addiction. If you are taking pain medication that has been prescribed by a doctor, and you become addicted AT the doses prescribed, not more than the prescribed doses, then you are clinically dependent on your medication, but your not abusing your drugs. I take several different addictive drugs everyday. I know, and my doctor knows that if I ever have to stop, it will be a process of tapering down, and possibly even going to the hospital to detox. Back to your medication. My doctor has me on Tramadol(which I love by the way, it completes me, lol) and also 10 Vicoden a month for break threw pain, or in other words bad days. My whole family except my Dad is junkies. They have been over my house playing X-BOX and stole my pills before. I agree that you should never share pills. I have to hide my pills when they come over. I left a bottle of Klonopin out, and substituted the pills with laxatives and my brother and law took about 20 out of the bottle, idiot. Opiate addiction is not that bad if you and your doctor are aware of your condition and you take your prescribed doses. Answered by Cherilyn Mccane 2 years ago.

Yes, they act in more or less identical ways once inside your body. Their are differences about how fast the different drugs start acting (heroin acts much faster as its injected right into the veins) and how much of each drug is needed to get a similar high, but pretty much, yes it is every bit as 'bad.' That being said doing heroin is generally more dangerous as addicts often inject with dirty needles leading to the spread of hepatitis, HIV, or contraction of endocarditis (infection of the heart).

Does morphine come in a pill or only in a shot? and can it be prescribed to take at home?
Asked by Jarrod Hanauer 2 years ago.

Morphine sulfate also is administered orally or rectally. The manufacturers state that certain morphine sulfate extended-release preparations (i.e., Avinza® extended-release capsules, Kadian® extended-release capsules, Oramorph® SR extended-release tablets) can be administered without regard to food; the effect of food on the GI absorption of other morphine sulfate extended-release preparations (i.e., MS-Contin® extended-release tablets) has not been fully evaluated to date. Extended-release tablets of the drug should be swallowed intact and should not be broken, crushed, or chewed; intake of a broken, crushed, or chewed tablet may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate. The manufacturers of morphine sulfate extended-release capsules state that the capsules may be swallowed whole or the entire contents of the capsules may be sprinkled on a small amount of applesauce, at room temperature or cooler, immediately prior to administration; subdividing the contents of a capsule is not recommended. The patient should swallow the entire mixture. The beads or pellets should not be crushed, chewed, or dissolved; intake of crushed, chewed, or dissolved beads or pellets may result in too rapid a release of the drug from the preparation and absorption of a potentially fatal dose of morphine sulfate. Following administration, the patient should drink a glass of water to rinse the mouth and ensure that the beads or pellets are swallowed. The mixture of applesauce and beads or pellets should not be stored for future use. Patients receiving morphine sulfate extended-release capsules (Avinza®, Kadian®) must not consume alcoholic beverages or prescription or nonprescription preparations containing alcohol; intake of alcohol may result in rapid release of the drug from the capsules and intake of a potentially toxic dose of morphine sulfate. Additionally, one manufacturer states that the contents of the extended-release capsules (Kadian®) should not be administered through a nasogastric tube Serious adverse events and deaths have occurred as a result of inadvertent overdosage of concentrated morphine sulfate Answered by Jacquline Klapec 2 years ago.

I am not going to blindly ask my parents or doctors for this, because it is not my place to get something like this. I just want to get answers to my question. Answered by Albina Verhagen 2 years ago.

A couple of things- Firstly if marijuana is illegal where you live then you can't legally use, buy, or posses it regardless of why you are using it. Also nearly all doctors will not officially condone or recommend medical marijuana use by a patient and doctors do have some legal liability if they do. Also over-the-counter pain medication is only for MILD pain, if you have a legitimate medical problem causing moderate to severe pain then only prescription medication will be able to alleviate it (OTC drugs did not work because they are useless against severe pain). If your problem is so severe why aren't you getting treatment or at least symptomatic control? With any type of pain, even in places where medical marijuana is available, it is not going to be used especially if you have only taken drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, Motrin (ibuprofen) that is like going from the most minimal to very extreme without stopping in the middle. The cornerstone of pain management is opioid use particularly the full opioid agonists including: morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MST Continus, Oramorph SR) oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Oxy-IR, Roxicet, Roxicodone, Tylox, Endocet) oxymorphone (Opana, Opana ER, Numorphan) hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo, Hydromorph Contin) fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq, Fentora, Onsolis) methadone (Dolophine, Metadol, Methadose) Typically something like marijuana is used to treat pain WITH opioids, for extreme conditions, in patients refractory to opioid therapy, and especially in patients with terminal conditions (typically AIDS or cancer), cachexia, and chemotherapy induced vomiting refractory to first-line treatment. It is not really your age that is a problem, people at any age with severe pain are treated with the proper medications to control the pain. Just to give you an idea of the guidelines and conditions that medical marijuana is typically accepted these are the Health Canada regulations (this is just for generalized information) There are two categories of people who can apply to possess marihuana for medical purposes: Category 1: This category is comprised of any symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care; or the symptoms associated with the specified medical conditions, namely: Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from multiple sclerosis; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from a spinal cord injury; Severe pain and/or persistent muscle spasms from spinal cord disease; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from cancer; Severe pain, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, and/or severe nausea from HIV/AIDS infection; Severe pain from severe forms of arthritis; or Seizures from epilepsy. Category 2: This category is for applicants who have debilitating symptom (s) of medical condition (s), other than those described in Category 1. Under Category 2, persons with debilitating symptoms can apply to obtain an Authorization to Possess dried marihuana for medical purposes, if a specialist confirms the diagnosis and that conventional treatments have failed or judged inappropriate to relieve symptoms of the medical condition. You really need to talk to your doctor and your parents. If you are in significant pain or are having any medical problems is it important to tell your doctor and get appropriate treatment. Also the best course of action is saying "doctor I'm in severe pain, how can we get it controlled?" And then let him do his job to consider, inform, and recommend options for pain control. But in the end, at least for now, you simply can't get medical marijuana and with respect if you have not taken anything except OTC medication then use of medical marijuana is not really considered appropriate. Lastly do not believe people who on are the extremes on the issue of marijuana. It is not the terrible drug some would have you believe nor is it a risk-free and perfectly benign substance. ALL drugs no matter if it is smoked, taken as a pill, injected, or is natural, semi-synthetic, or synthetic have risk. Marijuana may not have killed anyone but death is not the only risk- other things can happen. UPDATE: Just to respond to sauve4te I am hardly a "very narrow minded individual." I have not said marijuana is bad or that it should not be used however responsible doctors don't take 16 year old patients who have only taken OTC medications and then put them on marijuana. That goes against every medical guideline and common sense. Also most of the conditions marijuana may be prescribed in certain states or countries have NEVER been been proven to be effectively treated with marijuana. The states just put the few conditions proven to be treatable and then add a bunch more that typically is only supported by very little evidence. Notice how each state has different "approved" uses ranging from the proven (cachexia) and in some states, especially California and Colorado it is being prescribed for things like ADHD. Your information said "Each state has their own conditions which are medically approved uses" to me that sounds like there is no consensus. The only things marijuana is currently PROVEN to treat are for 1) AIDS-related anorexia and cachexia 2) severe nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. 3) As an adjunctive analgesic treatment in adult patients with advanced cancer who experience moderate to severe pain during the highest tolerated dose of strong opioid therapy for persistent background pain. 4) As an adjunctive treatment for the symptomatic relief of neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults. For the record I have had severe chronic pain for about half my life, I tried marijuana when I was in university and it did help my pain. I did not use more because I did not like the feeling but I assure you that I understand pain- from patients, studies, and myself. I know what being desperate for relief is like. The problem is that treatments need facts, just because many people (including myself) say marijuana helps pain is not proof. And anywhere you do the proper protocol- to use full opioid agonists as the central medication then add adjunctive treatments (hydroxyzine, orphenadrine, diazepam, clonazepam, methylphenidate, dextroamphetamine, gabapentin, amitriptyline, phenobarbital, promethazine, marijuana).

Answered by Alaine Volpert 2 years ago.

Unfortunately, I don't believe you would be able to obtain medical marj because you said in your state it is not legal yet. Also you are only 16 they would probably want you to wait until your 18 since than you are considered a "legal" age. You may only have the option now to buy illegally which of course I cannot recommend lol .lol. Marijuana does NOT have any bad long term side effects contrary to what many people think. A lot of people have been taught and brainwashed to think badly about marij. but any research would more than likely change people's ideas.. I would suggest checking out the website: medicalmarijuana.procon.org TOTAL DEATHS FROM MARIJUANA = 0 TOTAL DEATHS FROM 17 FDA APPROVED DRUGS = 10, 008 I believe this info is from 2005 so I'm sure the deaths from FDA approved meds is a lot higher now. Good luck, I know how you feel Have to disagree with a so called answer you got. Obviously a very narrow minded idividual. Anyway wanted to share with you the conditions that medical marijuana is now approved for in DC. Approved Conditions: HIV, AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, cancer, other conditions that are chronic, long-lasting, debilitating, or that interfere with the basic functions of life, serious medical conditions for which the use of medical marijuana is beneficial, patients undergoing treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy/ In Michigan: Approved Conditions: Approved for treatment of debilitating medical conditions, defined as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn's disease, agitation of Alzheimer's disease, nail patella, cachexia or wasting syndrome, severe and chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, epilepsy, muscle spasms, and multiple sclerosis HIV, AIDS, Cancer are approved med uses in all states that are medically approved marj states.

A great documentary came out called "Super High Me" watch it and all questions should be answered. On a personal note, Marijuana is a naturally occurring plant and I think it should be legal, medical or recreational. Answered by Norah Polizzi 2 years ago.

Cannabis is a wonderful painkiller. If medical marijuana is illegal in your state, as you said above, you cannot get it in that state. With your medical history and your parents signature, you would be able to get MMJ in the states that it is legal. The long term side effects are a toll on your lungs if you smoke cannabis, but its not nearly as bad as cigarettes. It can also mess up your short term memory. I use medical marijuana.

Answered by Lenna Gfeller 2 years ago.

Your doctor presumably thought Clonazepam would be a better choice for you than Xanax. Without reviewing the specific details of your case, I can't offer you any insight as to whether or not her reasoning was correct, but presumably at least she thought it was. If you're concerned about your current medication, you should definitely discuss this with your doctor- you should ask why that particular drug was prescribed, if there are alternatives, and why she thought this one was the best. Answered by Sherill Goleman 2 years ago.

Clonazepam lasts longer but Xanax packs a more powerful punch initially. As for pain meds, its kinda hard to get Oxycontin prescribed, but you never know. I take Clonazepam by the way, and it works very well. Answered by Teodora Pardi 2 years ago.

How does opana compare to oxycontin?
Asked by Doretha Salamon 2 years ago.

In what way? Are you comparing Opana ER (oxymorphone extended-release) to OxyContin (oxycodone extended-release) or are you talking about the instant release for of Opana vs. instant release oxycodone? Both drugs are full opioid agonists indicated for moderate to severe pain when the use of an opioid is indicated. Oxymorphone, the opioid in Opana, is twice as potent as oxycodone. Some oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone so a very small amount of the effects of oxycodone is from oxymorphone. Opana ER has a better reputation for lasting the full 12hrs compared to OxyContin which some people need to take a bit more frequently. Contrary to what one person wrote oxycodone is NOT more addictive than oxymorphone. Full opioid agonists have the same potential for abuse and dependence. Since Opana is fairly new and not as widely prescribed as OxyContin it has not been abused as often but they do have the same abuse potential. However when taken for a legitimate problem the risk of abuse or dependence to any opioid is very small. Both drugs are still only available as brand name drugs so they are both expensive. However two extended release opioids- MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release) and Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal) are available as generics. Basically everyone does differently with opioids- some people respond well the Opana and have few side effects, some don't do well with Opana at all but may do well with OxyContin. In general both drugs are well tolerated and highly effective. I have personally taken both but my experience is really irrelevant and won't really help. Some guidelines recommend that a morphine drug be first used and if it is not well tolerated a drug like OxyContin should be used. Other long acting opioids available in The United States include MS Contin (morphine sulfate extended-release), Duragesic (fentanyl transdermal), BuTrans (buprenorphine transdermal), Kadian (morphine sulfate extended-release), Avinza (morphine sulfate extended-release), Oramorph SR (morphine sulfate extended-release), Exalgo (hydromorphone extended-release), and Embeda (morphine sulfate/naltrexone). Dolophine (methadone) is also used, it does not come in an extended-release form but it works longer than other opioids and is typically taken every 8-12hrs. There is also Ultram ER (tramadol extended-release) however tramadol is NOT a full opioid agonist and it is approved for moderate to moderately severe pain. Answered by Dean Smink 2 years ago.

Oxycontin is a form of time released OXYCODONE, not morphine. You probably already know that, by looking at the medicine bottle, but others may think it's actually morpine based on the above poster's response. If you're hurt enough to get a prescription for 20 mg's of oxycodone, you should probably be on the couch resting, anyways. There's a lot of factors, most likely you will feel a little buzz for the first few days. I'd avoid operating a vehicle for the first day to make sure you know how the medication affects you. Take it easy and recuperate. Answered by Natasha Rinderle 2 years ago.

Since Darvocet has been pulled off of the market, what will doctors replace it with?
I was previously prescribed Darvocet for my back pain, but now that it has been pulled off of the market, I was wondering what my doctors might replace it with. I am also prescribed Ultram (Tramadol). Asked by Verdell Mhoon 2 years ago.

Darvocet is indicated for the relief of mild to moderate pain and I don't think any other opioids have the same indication, for example Tylenol with Codeine is indicated for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain. I would imagine tramadol, codeine, and hydrocodone (perhaps even pentazocine to some extent) will become the preferred drugs. The other issues is that propoxyphene is a federally controlled schedule IV substance, the same as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), phenobarbital, and Adipex-P (phentermine). Most other opioids are at a higher level of control, due to a higher addictive potential, and from all the American doctors I have spoken with they prefer using schedule III or IV opioids when possible. Hydrocodone and codeine are both schedule III and tramadol is not a controlled substance. Even now hydrocodone is the most prescribed drug in The United States and codeine has fallen somewhat out of favour. There is also the possibility that many of the drugs with hydrocodone like Vicodin may be removed from the market, which a FDA committee did recommend due to the high levels of acetaminophen. There are a lot of opioids in the US so I am sure you and your doctor can find a something good List of opioids: Weak to intermediate opioids: Codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Prontalgine Codeine Contin) Tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Zydol, Tramacet, Contramal, Tramal, Tridural, Zytram XL) Pentazocine (Talacen, Talwin NX) Dihydrocodeine (Codhydrine, Panlor DC, Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicoprofen, Ibudone, Zydone, Xodol, Maxidone) Full opioid agonists: Morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MOS-SR, M.O.S., MXL Capsules, MST Continuous, Oramorph SR, Embeda) Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Oxy-IR, Supeudol, OxyNorm, Magnacet, Roxicet, Tylox, Combunox, Endocet) Oxymorphone (Opana) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo) Fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq) Pethidine/meperidine (Demerol) Methadone (Dolophine) Levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran, Dromoran) Tapentadol (Nucynta) Answered by Crissy Luedi 2 years ago.

Is Darvocet Off The Market Answered by Oswaldo Bilder 2 years ago.

my husband and i took hydrocodone for many years and did not get addicted, as we used it when laying down didn't help. i supply of 30 of them lasted me four months. but then i got allergic to codeine. my doctor switched me to darvocet a few months ago. now that it has been pulled off the market our doctor switched me to talwin. my husband can still take hydrocodone. does anyone know how talwin com,pares in pain relief to hydrocodone? by the way, i had been taking hydrocodone for so long that the darvocet worked better than it. Answered by Yoshiko Clemon 2 years ago.

Probably nothing. Tramadol is a NSAID pain reliever. Depending on your problem, they may just leave you with that. Darvocet is in the same class with Codeine (synthetic), so they might give you Vicoden. Many times when people come into the ER for back pain, they go home with Motrin & Vicoden, if they send them home with a Rx at all. Answered by Kristin Andrew 2 years ago.

Darvocet was pretty much worthless for pain relief anyway. It had a LOT of hidden dangers, including patient deaths, without much to recommend it for relieving pain. There are much better/safer/effective alternatives today, including Vicodin. Answered by Loretta Donmoyer 2 years ago.

It's no great loss. Propoxyphene isn't as strong as acetaminophen, anyway, and most people would have been better served by taking a couple of Tylenol along with a couple of Advil. There's still plenty of codeine and hydrocodone, et. al.. Answered by Rikki Vongkhamphanh 2 years ago.

Oxycodone or hydrocodone, most likely. There's no shortage of pain relievers. Yet. Answered by Lakisha Misove 2 years ago.
