    It's a new opiate - a long-acting form of oxymorphone. Don't know if it's available yet.

    I'm going to give Opana a try. We'll see if it doesn't stop up my plumbing - if it doesn't, maybe I can build up to a dosage that has some effect. Starting at 10 mg. (if insurance covers it.)

    Opana ER not covered by Medicare Part D, or, apparently, Maryland Medicaid. Lowest price I found was $275 for 100 10 mg pills, and we don't have that. Company has no program for people who can't afford the med - I called to ask.

    The insurance approved Opana, so I'm going to try it, but I don't expect anything. I haven't been able to get to high enough doses of any narcotic to get even a slight bit of relief from the pains, which just keep feeling worse. Every day, it seems like I feel tighter, and it's more difficult to breathe and to move my arms. Nothing helps pains or popping shoulders, and I don't know what the hell to do.

    Oxymorphone........Sounds to me like a cross between Oxycodone (Oxycontin), Morphine & Methadone........

    What do you think?

    Wouldn't mind trying it!
