Anything equal to Opana

    Pain n the neck,

    I do apologize, I haven't been on here for a bit.  I think the last time I was on here I forgot to check my notifications.  Update;  so I had to switch insurance companies Jan '17.  My new insurance company does not cover Opana ER.  They do however, pay for what some consider to be the generic for Opana ER, oxymorphone ER.  The oxymorphone ER is not considered by pharmacies, or my pain docs to be the generic equivalent, because of the coating.  After discussing this with my doctor, she agreed to start writing my scripts as Oxymorphone ER 30.  I discussed this drug with the pharmacist, and she said the main drug is the same but the coating and inactive ingredients are different, and I just have to try it to be sure I don't have any different or unfavorable side effects.  I can say that it works as well as Opana ER, thank God.  The only thing that I noticed, and this is just me; the drug has to be taken on an empty stomach, one hour before eating (as directed).  I noticed that if I don't eat within about 45 minutes of taking it, I will get some pretty significant nausea (more than the Opaa).  Otherwise, all is good, and it only costs me a $10 copay each month, vs. $35 per month for 2015 & 2016 for the Opana.  Hope this helps, and I apologize for the delay in response.
