Clinicians are advised to exercise extreme caution when initially administering oxymorphone hydrochloride therapy. Individuals should be monitored closely for respiratory depression for the first 24 hours following the initial dose.
People who are addicted or dependent upon the drug often resort to injecting street heroin, as this is the cheapest variety of opiates and the easiest to access without a prescription. Heroin and oxymorphone hydrochloride both produce pleasure-inducing effects that can be nearly identical. Combining oxymorphone hydrochloride with other substances that depress the central nervous system can lead to life-threatening complications including respiratory depression.
Other factors that affect the length of the half-life include body fat content, weight, metabolic rate, kidney health, age, how frequently the drug is taken, and the amount of water in the body. Liver health is especially influential in oxymorphone hydrochloride metabolism. The liver is responsible for processing 90% of the drug. Oxymorphone hydrochloride is extensively metabolized. Less than one percent of the administered dose is excreted through the urine.
