[QUOTE who="What?"]What is Hydromorphone and what kinds of it are there in tazewell?[/QUOTE]Opana....and its everywhere. I'm guessing since you know that its Hydromorphone then you've read up on it. It's mainly a stronger alternative to Oxys for pain management.

Hydromorphone is different than oxymorphone. Just like Oxycodone and Hydrocodone are two different types of opiates. Hydromorphone is Dilaudid while Oxymorphone is Opana.

Oxymorphone is killing more and more people (of all ages) in this town because the user doesn't realize how messed up they really are when they take the Opana. It takes so long for the drug to kick in so they keep taking more and more and by the time they get their high it's too late. As for Hydromorphone, I've not heard of any overdoses on it but even though it's not as strong as Oxymorphone it's still possible. I don't condone drug use of any sory but if you are going to use anyway then educate yourself.

You're right. From what I gather Opana is morphine and an oxy mix, or similar?? I'm not a pill user of any kind, so all if my info comes from a friend of mine who's an EMT and Google if course. Either way, Opana is killing people, and yes, its pill abusers for the most part, but damn something needs to be done about it.

I seriously hope for the sake of your relatives and loved ones that God realizes that your ignorance is not intentional - you can't help it, you are just that way. Your COMPLETE LACK of knowledge about a unbelievably horrific and devastating topic is one of the biggest reasons people should not even read 99% of posts on topics and take an even lesser percentage to heart!!

Ask any professional in the field of addiction and they will show you that the vast majority of people (Over 80%) who stumble into the HELL of Addiction -do so without full & accurate knowledge of whichever particular substance they become addicted to. Many are too trusting in their Doctors (not thinking for 1 instant that the Dr. would have his own financial agenda ahead of the well-being of their patients) and when their doctor prescribed a certain new miracle pill to remedy their back pain or headaches - without taking time during their 5 minute office visit to explain this pill almost certainly will make them addicted and could kill them.

Instead the Dr. is thinking that at this rate of prescribing the "Latest & greatest" pill on the market to his patients for everything from arthritis to gout, they will have accumulated enough points to qualify for the new portable X-ray machine the pharmaceutical companies that make this new drug are offering physicians who prescribe a set amount of the medicine.(think I'm making this up??? Ask any "honest" pharmaceutical rep or do some online research for instance on OxyContin and the pharmaceutical company that released first onto the market and the Billions in profits they posted year after year.

Then there are those who have been injured on the job or in an automobile accident and had to have extensive surgeries and as a result were prescribed such potent pain meds during their recovery and were not warned of the side effects and requirement of being weaned off this type of meds to have any chance of avoiding total addiction to it.

I personally have seen people make statements EXACTLY like yours here on topics and then find out 4 or 5 years down the road that this very same person has died of an overdose on the very medicine they made fun of someone else for struggling with or have lost children to the drug.

Wake up people! Do not be so quick to bestow your supreme opinion of somebody and make fun of them - lest ye be forced to walk a mile in their shoes. Won't be so funny then Joker!!!

I most agree I'm disabled from an accident cause by a druggie. I've suffered going on nine years of constant pain, my Doctor has had me on differant pain medications over the years but now due to these druggies its hard for people with try pain get medication for it. people who are druggies could stop if they truely wanted to but thats not going to happen an dont blame it on the pills, whats happened in your lives that B.S you just a buzz an/or people to feel sorry for you.
Druggies an people who murder should all get the death sentence.

If this offends you I dont care. I'm tired of family an friends of druggies defending them. if you truly care or cared for them you would have got them help by now

Opanas are oxy and duldid not morphine. I have had several friends od from this and have researched it. It causes your blood to thin out and pretty much drown in your own blood.

I know its a rude and crude world out there and drugs are a big problem around here. I had a son pass away on oxys but the doctor had prescribed the meds to him over a head and brain injury. He lived in Tennessee and even though he was legal in a sense he was a addict. After taking his meds day after day he had alot built up in his system. I know some people need these drugs but there has to be a better way.I dont have the answer but i know it is a life destroyer. He was in 5 rehabs, church, and even 6 months in jail, The demons always came back and it finally caught up with him. Rest in Peace old soldier, the fight goes on.
