SWIM was wondering if it possible to smoke Opana (oxymorphone). He is prescribed both the ER and IR ones. If it is how much should he smoke if his normal dose is 10 mg snorted? Thanks in advance for any answers.
swim is sure it is smokable like oxycontin (oxycodone time release) but swim thinks smoking pills like oxycontin is stupid and can not be good for your health smoking a bunch of binder/filler and all that crap.
question is can it be done and be done well SWIM would think. SWIM has found no other pills that smoke as efficiently and get you as high as OC name brands. There def. designerd to be messed with in different ways
The smoking thing worked, but for the IV'ing, I have been on OP's for three years. There is no way, and it is a waste of a good pill to try and inject it. The reason that people that have been on OC's do not like OP's, is their bodies have become accustomed to the codone, instead of the morphone. I take 3 30's a day, and when I am hospitalized, the hospitals never have Opana, so they give me 90 mg Oxycontin, and it does nothing for me. They have to give me Dillaudid injections every three hours, because the OC's have no effect on me. It is all in what you are used to.

Reason: self incrimination

This presents a slightly incorrect picture of how tolerance works. In fact, the reverse is more likely to be true; incomplete cross tolerance means that although an individual may be tolerant to a certain opioid, they would in fact be less tolerant to an equipotent dose of another, new opioid, that they haven't had any experience of before. When switching from one opioid to another it is best to calculate a slightly lower than equianalgesic dose, in order to account for incomplete cross tolerance.
Also, there is no drug called "codone", nor is there a drug called "morphone". The drug names are oxycodone and oxymorphone. Try and get in the habit of using full drug names, as it causes less confusion - start shortening oxycodone to "codone" and people may mistake it for codeine, for example.
I know what the drug is called, and don't tell me about cross intolerance. I have lots of friends on OC's that do not like the Opana's because they do nothing for them, and for swim, I would give you a 100, 90's OC's (and before you correct, that is an eighty and a ten), they do absolutely nothing for mr because I am used to MORPHONE!
