Oxymorphone ER Medication Information

Oxymorphone ER (Opana® ER) is a medication used to treat moderate-to-severe chronic pain in people age 18 and older. This narcotic medicine is specifically designed for use when around-the-clock pain relief is needed for extended periods. It comes as an extended-release tablet and is typically taken every 12 hours.
 
As an opioid narcotic, oxymorphone ER does have a high potential for physical and psychological abuse. Therefore, it may not be appropriate for people who have a history of alcohol or drug dependence.
 
To help ensure safe treatment with oxymorphone ER, the medication's safety information should be reviewed before you start taking it. This product may not be suitable for everyone, so let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have certain medical conditions (such as low blood pressure or lung disease), or have any allergies, just to make sure this product is right for you.
