Pharmdawg: You should be dead of respiratory depression, that's why


It all depends on your tolerance. I know a guy who took 8 oxy 80's once with an unknown amount of klonopin. He was farked up and from what his sister said his breathing was shallow but he didn't die or have any after effects except he realized he almost killed himself and was scared.
/He still does pills to the point of passing right the fark out so he learned nothing from it.

you are a puppet: Anyway to take it besides smoking it?


Yeah, you just eat it, it tastes awful so I buy it in capsules from a place called http://www.kratom.pro The vietnam strain is the strongest.

Jon iz teh kewl: common sense is an oxymoron: Murray "acknowledged that he was not legally entitled to prescribe methadone" for the patient because he did "not have the required license to treat addiction and was not practicing in a facility licensed for that purpose," the order said.

WTF?

Methadone isn't just a diversionary treatment for opioid addicts. If you don't have health insurance, it's far and away the cheapest way to treat chronic pain.

no it isn't.  shiat costs $11 a day



Where do you buy it on a daily basis? My wife was paying about $15 a month vs. $50 and up for hydrocodone/acetaminophen or oxycodone.

Thanks. I read a little about it after your post. Have you ever tried Phenibut? It seems slightly riskier but sounds intriguing, either with kratom or by itself.

FTA comments section...

"It never ceases to amaze me when I read these stories. If you are intelligent enough to become a doctor, you would think you could use your brain instead of what's in your pants. What kind of an idiot would throw away a beautiful, intelligent wife and 2 beautiful children for a pill whore? It makes you wonder how a medical license could be given to someone so blatantly stupid."

The pill whore does all that freaky shiat his "beautiful, intelligent" wife won't.

Or, the wife used to fark like a carnival ride but after she married the doctor and guaranteed he would pay out the arse for a divorce by having two kids she suddenly developed a severe penis allergy and the sex stopped completely.

For more details on this type of marital condition do a google search for 'Tiger Woods'.

Buying an escort probably wasn't possible in Bugtussle Kentucky where everyone knows your business (as evidenced by the outraged comments of kendracaudill) so a drug addict slut he could pretend was a patient was the only available option for the kind of sex he enjoys and used to get before the marriage and kids.

I'm in no way trying to say what he did was right but I can kind of understand how it happened the way it did.

QueenMamaBee: Sun Khan: gambitsgirl: Sun Khan: gambitsgirl: Prey4reign: Sun Khan: Just had those for the first time ever this week. Scared the crap out of me, returning the balance of pills to CVS and sucking up the pain.

/didn't get laid

I believe that's against the law for a pharmacy to take back pills it has already dispensed.

They dispose of them. I returned all my of husband's meds (minus any good ones) to CVS after he died. It's better than flushing them.

Bingo. Thanks gambitsgirl.


BUT if you wish I will take them for you. Cause I know you're in pain and all. Just send them here and I'm all over it.

Just headed over to CVS and offered them to the RPh for disposal. She said she can't take them because they're CIIs. There went that idea.

Local or state police officers usually have take-backs a couple of times a year... they incinerate them. Or just put them with cat litter or coffee grounds in your trash. Just don't flush.


Yes, I'm sure we'll never hear about drugs going missing from the capable hands of the law.

sigdiamond2000: LawPD: She's got to be selling them. Has to be. Because if she's taking 300 oxycodone a month that woman ain't never pooping again.

She's probably mixing laxatives with the Oxycontin.

Goofball addicts call that "Sh*tting the Dragon"

Glancing Blow: For those with the most severe pain the fentanyl transdermal patch is the way to go.


You are correct that the Fentynal patch is a great way to find relief from chronic pain. However, there are a number of downsides to the patch, thankfully I am no longer on that nightmare of a medication. It's been replaced with extended release morphine. The problems with the Fentynal are:

1: It worked great when it worked, but on occasion the patch would run dry before the 72 hour time frame it was supposed to work for. This would leave me in unbelievable pain without warning.

2: The risk of overdose was always there. If you got to hot from exercise, a shower or anything to raise your body temp the patch would release more medication.

3: On occasion the patch would no longer adhere and fall of. This could be a life threatening situation if it were to come in contract with your spouse, kids, pets. Fentynal can kill if a non-opiate tolerate person comes in contact with the patch. Very scary stuff.

4: Although the issue had been solved there were overdoses due to manufacturing defects with the patch.

I won't argue the effectiveness of the patch, it did work wonders on the pain. But it is truly scary shiat and I am so happy I no longer have to rely on it. The extended release morphine works just as well, has less side effects and you don't have to worry about it falling off.

gambitsgirl: I've got about 160 codeine and 100 tramadol I don't know what to do with. Any suggestions?


ahahahahaha

*blush*
lemme hold it for a second. I just learned a new trick ^^^


By "it" do you mean the pill bottles or my penis? Because either way....I'm intrigued.

/I tried the codeine and the tramadol to get off the vicodin for a while and maybe decrease my tolerance so I wouldn't have to take so much. I don't think it works that way because codeine is also an opiate, and tramadol is a synthetic opiate so I guess it doesn't help. Besides, codeine gives me horrible constipation and tramadol gives me (sometimes...usualy when it's most inconvieniant like I need to sleep) acid reflux.

I guess they work well as rainy day pills.

Pharmdawg: OBBN: Eh, I'm not really sure why the pharmacist got all worked up over the amount of pills by themselves. I'm a chronic pain patient and I fill prescriptions for 300 oxycodone and 180 morphine pills per month. If course if the pharmacist suspects that there is no reason for the script, that's a different sorry. But a large amount of pain pills by themselves don't really point to anything strange.

You should be dead of respiratory depression, that's why


the point I was making is that people who have chronic pain and have been on opioids for years take HUGE amounts if narcotics daily. If the pharmacist had a reasonto think the customer didn't have a medical condition that's one thing. To be suspicious of ANYONE with a prescription for large amounts of pain killers is being paranoid. I guess it is based on the individual you're dealing with. I've walked into a new pharmacy and they filled an order of morphine without so much as a single question. Perhaps I just look like I'm in pain.

 And yes, respiratory depression is A major concern, although I've heard of people taking 800-900mg of morphine. It's all dependent on your tolerance level. The amount I take would probably kill a person with zero tolerance to opioids.

dahmers love zombie: 300 oxys a month?
(checks price on SR)
Holy cripes, you could make a good goddamn living marketing those.  More than I make per month, that's for goddamn sure.  And I don't even get laid as part of the bargain.


At first I was wondering why someone would get something like oxycodone in exchange for sex, but it does make a lot of sense if it was with the intent to resell or to feed an already existing addiction. I'd aim for morphine or even codeine over oxycodone. It might be better just to fark someone employed by a chemical supplier for better options. Hell, even a veterinarian could probably get you ketamine and maybe even PCP.

On Oxy right now for broken ribs, which hurt like all hell.

If you have significant physical pain, oxycontin just lets you feel kind of "normal."  If you have no physical injuries, it will probably get you way high, I suppose.  I'll save some aside for my waxing and electrolysis (note to profile pervs - I'm male).  I wouldn't know the particulars, but Vicodin has the same profile, only weaker.

Will be be glad to be off in a week or two.  Sure, I "think" that I can drive, but probably shouldn't.  Same with writing emails (or posts on Fark).

Had a back-thing a few years ago, with a physician handing me bucketfuls of Vicodin, rather than, say, treating the physical (disk rupture) cause.  Took a lot of effort to get off that crap once surgery fixed everything.  I don't want to repeat this experience with an even stronger opioid.

Short-term use only, my friends.  Don't go long, because it will be an absolute biatch to get off of, no matter what your psychological profile.  It's not as bad as nicotine, but hard enough that it's not fun.

ga362: That would make for some heavy duty constipation. As in, it would take a stick of dynamite to unplug her.

/friend of mine told me about the constipation . . yeah, that's it a friend told me.


Oh, god yes.  Take LOTS of doxylamine succinate (OTC).  Otherwise, especially if your injury is in the trunk of your body, you will simply re-injure and re-activate the pain by tearing loose the soft-tissue capsule that forms around an injury.  Too much detail--by urgently pushing for 30 minutes just to get a couple of turds out.  (Sorry.)  That re-activates all of the pain, renewing the cycle.

So please, for the love of God/FSM/Buddha, just take some doxy with it.  Helps tremendously.  Plus it OTC and cheap.  (For some odd reason, physicians NEVER warn patients about this.)

MythDragon: Sun Khan: Just had those for the first time ever this week. Scared the crap out of me, returning the balance of pills to CVS and sucking up the pain.

/didn't get laid

When I was about 19 or so I had the pleasure of having the Army take out my wisdom teeth. ("No we don't do gas here. Gas is for pusses. ...


I had my wisdom teeth taken out at 40.  I swear the guy was a sadist.  He gave me only Tramadol (which does nothing).  A week later I come back to him with TWO dry sockets (scab gone, exposed bone, utter agony).  He asks me to describe the pain in detail (not the 1-9 pain level most physicians ask for), but a full-on full physical description of the specific agony I was suffering.  He seemed to actually enjoy my physical description of the phenomenal pain of having two dry sockets.  Ugh.  Bastard then gave me a prescription for more Tramadol, despite my begging for something that actually worked.

The popular meme of some dental surgeons as sadists has an absolute root in reality.  (I've read some Marquis de Sade, and that stuff is (crap and) not even close to this suffering.)  I could tell the guy was going to jack off later to my description of the pain.  Should have gone to my GP for help with pain meds, but toughed it out instead.

OK, just to expose myself to potential libel allegations--well, I have copies of all the medical records proving that everything that I say is true, and I invite the good dental surgeon, that farking sadist, to join the discussion.  Ralph D. Buoncristiani DDS in Santa Monica, CA.  Bring it on, you creep!  You damned sadist freak!  Others have noted on various review websites his sadistic qualities and entire lack of bedside manner.  Bring it on, you fark.  The statute of limitations has still not run out for your intentional malpractice with a patient in agony.  Screw you.

Summer Glau's Love Slave: I had my leg cut off earlier this year, and my doc only gave me 60 Oxycodone per month. One Oxy a day was more than enough to kill all the pain and leave me high as a weather balloon. I really think that 10 pills per day would have killed me.

/Good times.


One a day after having a leg cut off?  Wow!  Was it 10 mg or 5 mg oxycontin?

I have only two broken ribs, and need 5-6 per day (5 mg each, during first week), just to feel "normal" and able to get some work done while I sit around healing.  There is no "high" to speak of.

Of course it would have if you took it right away. But if you have a persistent spinal injury and take one oxy a day for two months, it won't work anymore. You'll eventually need two, then four, then six and then, like me, in only eight months, you'll be taking 12 40mg oxys a day just to stay out of withdrawal.


OK, so I'm posting in a dead thread.  Again.

You need 12 40's per day?  Good god, I think it is time for you to consider the surgery, just so you can keep a clear head and do your thing.  If you do not have insurance, negotiate a price with the surgeon AND hospital AHEAD of time.  Then drop the $20k to have it fixed.  "Soft" fusion is the best, where they put in, essentially, a "flying buttress" that assists with both extension and flexion of the bad spinal disk levels.  Go somewhere in a teaching hospital in a big city, not some "local" hospital in the sticks where they'll surely screw it up.  It's basically a mechanical assist for the joint, rather than full fusion which causes problems later on down the road, generally with adjacent spine levels to the fusion.  Good treatment costs good money.  Pay for it.  It is worth it in the long run.

Don't end up like Evel Knievel, who had a morphine drip into his spine for many years.  Being high is kind of fun, sure, but before you know it, you will be 80 and almost dead, without remembering a thing.  Get it fixed now so you can live your life!

No no, this was years ago. My doctor finally said "hey, you're taking too many pills, I'm cutting you off cold!" It was great.  I went to the hospital to go through detox then had XLIF (XILF, XFIL,whatever) to repair the discs and have a cage put on.  Five years later though I'm still in Suboxone therapy because the combo of addiction, depression and genuine pain made my opiate addiction fairly chronic.  And believe me, I wasn't high at all.  After the first few months, opiates don't get you high anymore, they just keep you functioning.  If I didn't have my pills I basically just laid in bed all day and told my daughter I had a cold.  It's a shiatty row to hoe.

orbister: How, precisely, is this supposed to different from "medical" marijuana use?


People addicted to pot don't need to go to a methadone clinic and experience horrible detox.

Pot can be very addicting, usually because people are self-medicating another condition, like Schizophrenia or Depression. However, it's similar to getting of cigarettes.
