Hi,

Please try and stay in one post. It is so hard to follow when you start a new one on the same subject you were talking about. The answers fly all over and you miss something that could be useful to you.

I am shocked that the doctor gave you the Oprana. It is a morphine derivative as Henry stated in his last post. So, he simply replaced one for the other. Although a lesser amount, it is still an opiate in your system and is essentially tricking you.

He is putting you on Suboxone on Monday? Did he tell you that and tell you how to prepare for that the day before? Let us know.

I am sorry to say morphine is an opiate just like oxy. Ypour doc was maybe thinking of tapering you off. Talk to him/her and ask what the intentions are.

Opana is oxymorphone and it is a strong opiate.  It is a long half life drug and if u do not abuse it, it may help u.  Roxy is a short acting drug which trains ur brain to crave it every 4-6 hours due to the endorphin release produced when u take drugs like narcoticis.  there is an article in the health pages on dopamine and narcotics.
I have never heard of using opana to stop drugs cos it is a strong narc and i would be careful.,,again, do not abuse the opana or u will have a tougher problem than u had in the first place.
