    Unhappy Switched from Percocet/Morphine ER to Opana ER - Is my new dose too high?

    Hi,

    I have been taking 35-40 mg of percocet a day for breakthrough pain along with 30 mg of morphine sulfate ER every 12 hours. I was switched to Opana ER 30 mg every 12 hours. Is this too high of a dose of Opana ER for me? I'm afraid to take my first pill this morning, please advise. Thank you.

    Hi All:

    Update on my post. The conversion to Opana was incorrect! Who knows what could have happened to me. I have a dr. appt on Monday to change the Opana ER from 30 mg twice a day to 15 mg twice a day. I am supposed to take the percocet and morphine until then.

    I encourage everyone on opioid medcation to KNOW YOUR CONVERSIONS. Double check the conversion yourself so that you know what you are getting. I take 120 mg of morphine equivalent per day total. The Opana ER dose at 30 mg twice a day would have given me 180 mg of morphine equivalent per day!!! A 60 mg increase in morphine equivalent per day!!!

    You also need to tell people you're asking for advice what is wrong with you. I would stay with what you are doing until you see your dr on Monday. God bless.
