Pain Home > Snorting Opana ER

Because people have abused products like Opana® ER (oxymorphone ER) by snorting or injecting the medication, the company that makes Opana ER has formulated a new tablet that is supposedly more resistant to abuse. This new tablet is harder to cut or crush, which may help prevent someone from using the drug inappropriately.
Injecting or snorting Opana ER can lead to potentially dangerous and even life-threatening complications. Some of these problems include:
  • Breathing problems
  • Extreme drowsiness
  • Coma.
