How does Opana interact with other medications or foods?

It is important that you not take Opana in combination with alcohol, anesthetics, hypnotics, sedatives, other opioids, phenothiazines, or tranquilizers. If Opana is used with anticholinergic drugs, which reduce nerve impulses to treat muscle spasms, you may experience constipation and a blocked bowel.

Other medications that may interact with Opana include antihistamines, naltrexone, cold medications, benzodiazepines, muscle relaxers, bladder medications, sleep medications, Parkinson’s disease medications, pain medications, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, antipsychotics, stomach medications like dicyclomine, ipratropium, and anti-nausea medicines like scopolamine. Talk to your doctor before starting on Opana if you’re currently taking any of these medications.

Before beginning any treatment with Opana, discuss all medications, supplements, vitamins, and herbs you’re taking with your doctor.
