Opana is a prescription medication given to patients to relieve their severe, ongoing pain. It is an opioid analgesic that changes the way the brain and body respond to pain in order to reduce severe pain. This medication is only intended to be used for ongoing pain and not for mild, short-term pain.

Starting Opana can produce side effects for some patients. Common side effects associated with Opana use include nausea, vomiting, headache, constipation, dry mouth, mild itching, lightheadedness, dizziness, and drowsiness.

Serious side effects of Opana should be reported to your doctor as soon as possible. These include mood changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, stomach or abdominal pain, vision changes, slow or fast heartbeat, difficulty urinating, difficulty swallowing Opana, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.

Seek professional medical attention if you notice any of the following symptoms after using Opana: slow or shallow breathing, fainting, seizures, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, or signs of an allergic reaction such as rashes, itching and swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.

Opana Signs, Symptoms, and Side Effects
Patients who use Onsolis to treat their pain are still at risk for developing an Onsolis dependence or addiction. This is mainly due to the fact that Onsolis is an opioid analgesic. Opioids can be extremely addictive due to how they affect the brain, as well as their ability to induce a tolerance in most patients. If you begin to suspect that someone in your life is abusing Onsolis, seek professional help as soon as possible. Signs which may point to an Onsolis addiction include losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed, becoming obsessed with finding and taking Onsolis, exhibiting a poor performance at work or home, and more.
Long-term effects of abusing Opana include increased your risk of developing mental health issues, decreased ability for your body to manage pain and experience pleasure, perforated bowel, paralytic ileus, memory loss, lowered attention span, and more. For this reason, you should never take Opana unless you have a prescription for the medication and its use has been approved by your doctor.
