Opana Withdrawal Symptoms

Opana Withdrawal Symptoms

What is Opana? Opana is the brand name for oxymorphone, a prescribed drug used to reduce or relieve severe pain. Oxymorphone belongs to a group of pain medicines called narcotic analgesics. When the drug is used for a long time or longer than prescribed, a person will develop a tolerance and a physical dependency on the drug. In addition, Opana withdrawal symptoms are painful, even if a person temporarily stops taking the substance. Opioid addiction treatment or prescription pill treatment is advised if a person is showing signs of addiction or experiencing symptoms of withdrawal.

How Long Does Opana Stay In Your System?

Depending on the drug's half-life and other factors may prolong the drug's stay in your system. A drug's half-life determines when Opana withdrawal symptoms begin. Opana's half-life is between nine to twelve hours. Other factors that affect the duration of the Opana pain pills in the system include genetics, how long and frequent a person uses it, and the quantity of the dose.

Opana abuse can lead to potential overdose or enduring a more extended withdrawal period. It's essential to know the side effects of oxymorphone before use to avoid health complications. Side effects can include blurred vision, irregular heartbeats, rapid breathing, sunken eyes, and sweating. More severe side effects can be rashes, painful urination, joint pain, and swelling. 

About Opana Withdrawal Symptoms

Opana symptoms follow dependency on the drug and can be brutal on the mind and body. Symptoms can begin nearly twelve hours after a person's last use. More severe symptoms can start a few days after the last use, which is usually when people will seek immediate medical attention.

Opana withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea
  • Agitation
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Dehydration
  • Muscle aches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Intense irritability
  • Excessive sweating
  • Painful cramping in the abdomen

A medically monitored detox is highly recommended for those stopping drug use. Professionals can safely guide patients through the process which begins treatment. Also, establishing a relapse prevention plan is a terrific way to ensure long-term sobriety and maintain a productive lifestyle.
