Thanks to all for your comments. Made me feel less crazy. The sweating and the constipation are both dreadful. Is there some other long-acting drug that might not have the same side effects? I really want to try something different.View Thread
I take Opana ER, Vicodin, Soma for arthritis pain and compressed nerve root. I also take Zoloft and Klonopin for depression and anxiety. Also Crestor for cholesterol, Singulair , Claritin and inhalers for asthma. I am convinced that Opana has something like a withdrawal effect when the first dose starts to wear off and that is when I have the sweating and hot flashes. My docs don't believe Opana would do this. I have a lot of meds there and something is interacting with something else and I believe it is the Opana that makes me sweaty. I feel it is not worth taking but I dread going off of it. (it has also been VERY constipating.)View Thread
