Oxycodone and driving

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and driving

oxycontin

It seems to happen mostly when the sun goes down and while driving. The other question is how do you get the addict to admit they have a probelm and that their complete personality has changed?
Mostly I'm just looking for support my husband is just to ashamed to really talk about things. I found out about his addiction a year and a half ago and and until about a month ago thought he was clean. Now I find one thing after another it's so awful. I need peace of mind if his addiction is deeper than I think , I need to know. He says he will slowly ween himself off the subs hopefully by May but if I'm still finding oxycodone is he just telling me what he thinks I want to hear?
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND STARTED WITH 40 TO 50 MG A DAY AND WENT UP TO 90 MG A DAY FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS> SUDDENLY 3 DAYS AGO I DROPPED TO 7.5 MG 3 TIMES A DAY , AND HAVE HARDLY NO SYMPTOMS. IS THIS GOOD. SHOULD I BE FEELING SOME WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS FROM DROPPING THAT FAR OF A DOSE FOR THE LAST THREE DAYS. I'VE SLEPT ALL NIGHT. THE VERY FIRST NIGHT A WOKE UP WITH STOMACH CRAMPS AND THE RUNS BUT THATS IT. I GUESS I FEEL A LITTLE DEPRESSED ,BUT NOTHING BAD.
I am a RN and thought you might like a little respectful education regarding oxycodone and pregnancy. FIrst, it is known to cause 0 effects to a developing baby. It is Cat- B same as tylenol. So anyone who has taken a tylenol during pregnancy has took the same risk. Second, the effects of pain- increased B/P, pulse, and anxiety are known to cause distress to the baby and placenta.
I take between half and 1 whole Oxycodone before bed time, and have been doing so for around 6 months. (I don't usually take a whole pill at once because it makes me itch). I have skipped days in-between, however. I have chronic pain, mostly leg pain (sciatica) and nerve pain all over. I am somewhat concerned about getting addicted, although I will never take it when I know I'll be working or driving.

i travel around the midwest for my job so i'm constantly in my car and I would take these pills and create scenarios in my head of "happy" situations whether it be a social encounter, or an illusion of me driving the new truck that i want, or a great sales call. Either way, the pills pleased my mind in that kind of way. I've always been like this in a sort of way a "daydreamer" if u may have it. I just hope that over time my brain will function like that w/out them.
Eventually, he realized that I did need way more than the hydrocodone and put me back on the oxycontin/oxycodone at the 140mg daily dose and after a year we upped it to the current 2-60mg oxycontin and 4-15mg oxycodone. I do know I still need the medication at this point but do not want to be over medicating as tolerance develops fairly fast with this stuff. Eventually, my goal is to be narco free but I don't think my medical situation will allow that yet.
On my to do list for today - try to take the dogs for a walk, try to eat least one healthy meal, try to drink lots of fluids, talk to husband about my clandestine and hedonistic affair with oxycodone. Good luck to all of you today - stay positive and celebrate the smallest of victories.
Ok, here's the deal. You NEED to be careful here. The jerking is normal, but being confused and all that is dangerous. You need to do this right! You've just GOT to be careful. Why can't you taper properly? Did you just give up, because you were miserable? The heart thing is probably pretty normal too, but this is why we only tell extremely healthy people to go CT. It can be dangerous in some cases if you have underlying health conditions.
The firms are producing and shipping as product becomes available and it is currently estimated that return to normal supply levels may occur in approximately 2 months. For the other forms of oxycodone, such as extended release oxycodone tablets and combination oxycodone products, we have not received reports of shortages.
I didn't get addicted overnight, it was a gradual thing and before I knew it the oxys took over. I started taking more and more and saw my scripts run out early. It was a quick downward spiral. I would suggest asking the doctor for a non narcotic pain med like neurontin and see if that helps. You cannot be too careful with narcotics, it can creep up on you. If I had my time back i would have NEVER touched an opiate.
So here I am.... day 1 without Oxycodone. I could just go ahead and give up now, go have a pill and give up almost before i started, or I can see this through. My husband thinks I am coming down with something.... my cover story... the hours and days ahead will tell the tale of how far down I am going to come. It's unfortunate that I've put myself in a place where I have to come clean without really coming clean.
No one knows whats causing my pain but at its worst its a 10/10 and usually takes 30mg of oxycodone, fioricet, 800mg ibuprofen and sometimes soma to get it to go away then I am drugged. When the pain hits I am incapacitated all I can do is lie with an ice pack and wait for the meds to kick in. My wife has been an angel but I can tell its getting to her, I am a pharmacist and I know its getting to me not knowing whats causing this and just taking pills.
Am I going to be able to function driving with family and working over the next week or so? I have some old tramadol that I've read can help withdrawl. Tramadol has never really helped much with pain or given me any sense of euphoria. I have a limited amount, so I plan to try it in low doses hoping it will help. I have had restless leg syndrome before when I was off Oxy for a day and I could not stand it! Will Tramadol help with restless leg syndrome?
You haven't mentioned what your specific reasons are for wanted to quit the oxycodone. These reasons will be what motivates you, so you need to do a cons list and use it in your detox.
If I do somehow get enough to taper would I wd everyday and night! No sleep, depressed, sweats already driving me insane! Can't imagine it 15x worse!

Today I am not having attacks from my neuralgias (so far) but the anxiety, restlessness, and jitters are driving me insane. I can not stay still to save my life. I hate hate hate Oxycodone. It doesn't last nearly as long as Morphine. Thank God I have only been on the Oxycodone on and off for a month or so...so hopefully that will be easy. It's the Morphine I am dying without. I just want to sleep. I can hardly sleep at all. I HATE THIS!!
Where I was totally out of my element. No phone, no computer, no driving...and I've been smoke free for almost 5 years without major c/t type withdrawal.
Hi People, I'm so glad I found this forum. I Googled "does oxycodone cause pain" and found you. Now my fears have been confirmed. Seems it does. One year ago almost to the day I woke up on excruciating pain in my feet and hands, wrists. I have been on oxycodone for about 3 years, after an accident left me with 6 broken vertebrae and 9 broken ribs. Surgery didnt help either did pain clinics and thats how I got on the Oxy. But, wait for it, I'm only 10mg a day.
I started taking oxycodone about a year and a half ago (started with just 10mg a day). Now I have still managed to keep my intake between 45 and 60 mg a day. I want to be done with this. I can't do it anymore. My husband takes them too and that is how I started (he is prescribed them for pain). We both want to be done but I know that I need to be the one to totally clean up first so that I can get him clean too. I have always been the strong one out of the two of us.
as I was driving to the ATM yesterday i kept saying this is crazy this is real crazy..I did so much lying and plotting yesterday just to get them..The worst ever...you guys will probably quit talking to me..I told my husband the "guy" was here applying for a job for our company just to have him come into my office..WTF?? My hubby knew it was BS but he played along..he was like that was a quick interview.. I don't know if it was mental b/c I was getting low on them..
so i know his addiction is far more serious than he lets on. Further- he is on day 3 of detoxing with suboxone and clonidine and 800 mgs ibiprofen. Ihe has become enraged when ive asked him to pls not drive the kids untilbhe can provide skme facts that it is safe. Tonight he threatened to stay home with the kids 24 hours a day to keep them from me. J am a fulltime mom of iur 4 kids and i am very afraid he will hurt us or me. Is this behavior normal for a detoxing person?
Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew the differences between Oxycodone and Tylenol w/Codeine?? I know they both have acetomenophen. But, the Tylenol with Codeine has Codeine obviously. I was taking the one with 30mg. of codeine. Now I have Oxycodone 7.5-325. What is the opiad in this drug? Is it also codeine, or a different drug? I know my body's reaction to the T3, so I am a little nervous to try this new one....oxycodone. Is it stronger, not as strong, the same???
got scared giving me high amounts of oxycodone. At first the pain center was not happy with the amounts and try to cut me down only to see it was not helping my pain levels so they back off.. The pain center is now getting political pressure from all sides. The FDA, Whitehouse, and the group "PROP" which is trying to hurt chronic pain patients. I would assume these groups have an influence as they are coming down hard on us chronic pain patients from all avenues.
I am going nuts and need help bad. My headhurts at some point every day. Not all day...just a certain parts. No rhyme or reason to them. The ear ringing is only noticeable at bedtime or first thing when I wake up. I suffer from High BP...have my entire adult life. It is well controled and I have checked it numerous times when I have these symtoms and it is always a good low reading. My concerned is the new meds the detox hospital sent me home on.
So I got dressed and took off like I usually do. I wasn't thinking about pills at all until my sister came out and handed me a 15mg oxycodone!!!!!!!!!!!! I just stared at it like it was gonna talk to me or something. She thought I wasn't happy with just 1 so she asked if I wanted a morphine too. I was speechless and couldn't speek. I handed back the perk and said "I'm good, but thanks." Part of me really wants to harm the part that refused that pill.
This class of drugs includes heroin, morphine, codeine, methadone and oxycodone (Oxycontin).
Everything is fine until they go into deep sleep, when all the muscles (including the throat and tongue muscles) relax, and the tongue falls back and obstructs breathing. At this point, one of three things can happen: 1. You can wake up immediately to light sleep or completely awake, wondering why they are suddenly awake, 2. You can stop breathing for 1-9 seconds and then wake up to light sleep or completely awake, choking, coughing or gasping for air, with your heart pounding, or 3.
