OPANA®
(oxymorphone hydrochloride)


WARNING:
OPANA contains oxymorphone, which is a morphine-like opioid agonist and
a Schedule II controlled substance, with an abuse liability similar to other
opioid analgesics.
Oxymorphone can be abused in a manner similar to other opioid agonists,
legal or illicit. This should be considered when prescribing or dispensing OPANA
ER in situations where the physician or pharmacist is concerned about an increased
risk of misuse, abuse, or diversion.
OPANA is an oral formulation of oxymorphone indicated
for the management of moderate to severe pain when a continuous, around-the-clock
opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time.
OPANA is NOT intended for use as a prn analgesic.
OPANA TABLETS are to be swallowed whole and are not to be broken, chewed,
dissolved, or crushed. Taking broken, chewed, dissolved, or crushed OPANA
TABLETS leads to rapid release and absorption of a potentially fatal dose of
oxymorphone.
Patients must not consume alcoholic beverages, or prescription or non-prescription
medications containing alcohol, while on OPANA ER therapy. The co-ingestion
of alcohol with OPANA ER may result in increased plasma levels and a potentially
fatal overdose of oxymorphone.
