Active Ingredient History
Oxymorphone is an analgesic that is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It is also indicated for relief of anxiety in patients with dyspnea associated with pulmonary edema secondary to acute left ventricular dysfunction. Oxymorphone (brand names Opana, Numorphan, Numorphone) is a full opioid agonist and is relatively selective for the mu-opioid receptor, although it can bind to other opioid receptors at higher doses. Adverse reactions (≥ 2% of patients): seen with the immediate release tablet formulation Nausea, pyrexia, somnolence, vomiting, pruritus, headache, dizziness, constipation, and confusion. Concomitant use with serotonergic drugs may result in serotonin syndrome. Avoid use of mixed agonist/antagonist and partial agonist opioid analgesics with Opana because they may reduce analgesic effect of Opana or precipitate withdrawal symptoms. NCATS
