Oxymorphone ER or twice a day eqilent to MS Contin three times a day at MED equivalent doses?
| PharmaGuy
I switched recently from MSContin 30mg TID to Oxymorphone ER 15mg BID. I am not sure yet how well i will compare as the washout of MS Contin , so far so good. Does oxmorphone ER really work twice a day coming from three times a day MS Contin. MS Contin was also suppose to be a twice a day long acting opioid for chronic pain. My doctor who is a pain specialist only gives me hydrocodone 325/500 TIce a day for any breakthrough pain which is quite fewuent after being sable for two years but the Morphine metabolites weren't helping and I believe started my.chroic kidney disease. The downside long term opioid use messes with your you hpyo-pituitary axis (HPA) causing all kinds of Neuroendrine problems. Adrenal insufficiency, growth hormone defiiency. and testosterone decrease, eventually taking out your normal thyroid function. It's called pan-hypopituitarism. That is what happened to me. I also had a pituitary micro-adenoma which didn't help. Muddies the true cause or perhaps potentiated each other to the outcomes. No one ever seems to discuss the HPA issue just abuse. There are a lot of people with complex medical history's and the government stepping in making it a political agenda doesn't help. When they discuss OD issues, where a majority are Medicaid patients the states formulary pushes doctors to prescribe Merhadone because it's cheap. However in my State of WA it's attributed to roughly 90% of the prescription related OD's. are related to Methadone. It's a "dirty" drug because it's so hard to mas
