Oxynorm Respiratory Distress Causes and Reviews


Respiratory failure happens when not enough oxygen passes from your lungs into your blood. Your body's organs, such as your heart and brain, need oxygen-rich blood to work well. Respiratory failure also can happen if your lungs can't remove carbon dioxide (a waste gas) from your blood. Too much carbon dioxide in your blood can harm your body's organs.

Diseases and conditions that affect your breathing can cause respiratory failure. Examples include

  • Lung diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, and cystic fibrosis
  • Conditions that affect the nerves and muscles that control breathing, such as spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy and stroke
  • Damage to the tissues and ribs around the lungs. An injury to the chest can cause this damage.
  • Drug or alcohol overdose
  • Injuries from inhaling smoke or harmful fumes

Treatment for respiratory failure depends on whether the condition is acute (short-term) or chronic (ongoing) and how severe it is. It also depends on the underlying cause. You may receive oxygen therapy and other treatment to help you breathe.

Oxynorm Respiratory Distress Reviews

Mon, 28 Feb 2011

I was taking 10mg 4 times a day along with 2 20mg oxycodine everydayafter my spinal surgery.
i was having a lot of trouble with hallucating and fear i would stop breathing so i struggled to sleep thinking if i closed my eyes i would die. and i would see weird things when i closed my eyes. very addictive and i took a lot off will power to get off them. did help with pain.

I was prescibed Oxynorm 10gm after suffering spinal fractures afteran accident. The first time I took one I had mad halucinations and heart palpitations.I flet fear and would not close my eyes. Later I experienced vomiting and a horrible headache. I didnt take any more for a while and went back to the Panadeine Forte.
A few more times when the pain was really bad I took the Oxynorm again. This time no halucinations but still sick and had a headache afterwards.
I began taking them about once a week or so only when the pain was bad. Either the pain has increased or the Oxynorm dont seem to work as well because now I take one every day. This concerns me for future health problems.
Today for the first time I am in a lot of pain and have just taken 2 x10mg capsules. I feel a little foggy but only marginal pain releif... so now what. i know I really need to go back and be re-assessed but I am scared stiff about spinal surgery.. I dont know anyone for whom this has worked. I feel really lost sometimes and overwhelmed by this pain. It is all consuming and there seems no end to it.

i was dignose with stomach cancer after i had a surgery, i used to have Oxynorm 10mg in order to ease the pain when pain has gone i discoverd that i became addicted to it so i couldn't sleep if i dont take one at night so i did for nearly 5 month then i had blood clot in my both lungs so i decided to stop it

Wed, 21 Jul 2010

I take Oxycontin 80mg 2 times a day and up to 4 Oxynorm 10mg due to my back problems the only side effect i get is vomiting . But at lest Ive lost some weight . I have found they work only for patients in a lot of pain ie if you said 1is good and 10 worst pain ever you would need to be about 6/7 most of the day i know.

 I have had 2 spinal surgeries now, one when I was 18 and once when I was 21. I must say that although terrifying, it was the best things i've ever done. Pain was completely gone and I could walk again! I did, however, develop a serious addiction to Oxynorm. I was prescribed upto 20mg a day and was snorting 120mg twice a day after 2 years. PLEASE take this drug seriously and make sure someone else knows about your taking of it and how many you have and when you are supposed to have it. Self medicating because you feel you need more of the drug can easily spiral out of control and you quickly become very dependent on it. Coming off this drug has been a hard (and not finished) journey! There have been days where I've thought life could not get any worse and my pain was the worst thing ever... however I got myself to a Dr. with my parents and admitted my problem. I go into rehab later this month... Hope that helped!
