Does opana have heroin in it?

No it does not, but I used to prefer Opana to heroin. Opana produces much more of a crisp, clear headed high. You feel clean. Heroin tends to give you a 'cloudy minded' high. Plus you know exactly what you are putting into your body with Opana.(original) No, the active ingredient in Opana is Oxymorphone, a semi-synthetic opiod agonist which, like Heroin and all other drugs in the Opiate family is converted to Morphine by the body once ingested. The potency of Oxymorphone used intravenously however, is very comparable to Heroin.
