I'm wondering if any of you use or have used Opana for breakthrough pain and, if so, have you noticed any strange side effects from it?
I have a Fentanyl patch for long acting pain and when I started that I was prescribed the Opana. I take it as needed..and only when I really, really need it. I'm finding that I simply can't sleep after taking even one pill! It's morphine for goodness sake and it's keeping me awake? Sleep doesn't come easy anyway and missing a whole night isn't doing me any favors.
So, am I just a freak of nature or has anyone else had this experience? I go back to my doc in about a month and can by until then but I'm curious. I appreciate any input.
