Opana–A Fatal Drug

Posted on

Recently we have been reading a lot about Opana in the news about young high school kids using this drug recreationally. Unfortunately, this drug is much stronger than other drugs they have been used to taking for example oxycontin and when combined with alcohol, it has been turning out fatal.

Opana is about twice as strong as Oxycontin.

Here are some more important facts you need to know about this highly dangerous drug:

Opana is in a narcotic pain reliever similar to morphine and is used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Do not drink alcohol while you are taking Opana. Dangerous side effects or death can occur when alcohol is combined with a narcotic pain medicine, especially Opana.

The risk for harm is higher if you use the wrong dose/strength, or if you use it along with other drugs that might also affect breathing. Be sure you know how to use oxymorphone and what other drugs you should avoid taking with it.

Opana may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Opana should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction, children or adolescents.
