Oxycontin depression

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycontin depression

oxycontin

i have 2 days clean from a two week binge and the pain is pretty much gone but the depression is intense. depression is always the hardest part of this for me. i had used heroin(snorted about a bag over two days) and was in a depression for about 1 and a half months. i cant believe i have let myself back down in this black pit but I KNOW cant do this again! i have said that a million times before but i really mean it this time. this depression just isnt worth using.
I HIGHLY suggest imodium, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, and all the fluids you can take. As far as anxiety and depression, If you are not currently taking anything prescribed for that, 5HTP helps depression alot and L-theanine acts like a natural valium.\ If you use the search function here, I posted two posts regarding this one was called Amino Acids and Recovery and the other was Nutrition and withdrawals..
I was put on Oxycontin just a week ago and I feel much better and I decided to stop taking them.In march I had part of my left lung removed due to a pneumothorax.The doctors had discovered through exploratory surgery I had a Bleb which is a weak spot on my lung,and had caused its collapse.This is a very painful condition which you may know requires a chest tube.I had 2 of them.The first one did not work (after the collapse)so surgery was needed.It was sucessful.
Just to be clear I'm talking about pain killer ABUSE (as well as heroin), and I am not talking about the legitimate chronic pain patients who take their medicine as prescribed. I was addicted to OxyContin for some time, and I'm only 20. I got into it because I have severe anxiety and ocd, as well as depression and could not find a single medicine that made me feel "normal" except for opiates/opioids.
I have a standing order with a pain management dr that gives me oxycontin 40mgs 4 x per day for gout pain that comes from the kidney ailment among other things. I will not lie- I usually munch them up at the beggining of each day. makes me feel happy for about 5 to 6 hours. I know this is addict behaviour. I am an addict. I will not dare tell my dr this.
If you want to use the Tylenol 3 to get off the oxycontin so that it is easier to quit the tylenol 3 rather than oxy, then yes that is a better plan and you would also be in less severe withdrawl by doing this.. But you do not want to try and replace that feeling you were getting from the oxy with tylenol 3 because no matter how much you take it will never make you feel as strong as the oxy either..
As many of you already know I quit using Oxycontin Friday March 9th. Life has become much different during these past few weeks. I find myself sad and depressed one minute and on top of the world the next. I have been going to NA meetings on and off. I really havent had a good experience with the program. I call my sponcer and he doesn't return my calls. That hurts because I thought that NA was there to provide unconditional support. I get temted to use on a daily basis.
Since reducing the Oxcontin I have stared to experience extreme bouts, more severe and more often, of depression since I started reducing the Oxycontin. Is that a normal side affect of Oxycontin reduction? I have read up about the Buprenorphine and discovered that it is sometimes used to help addicts come off herion etc. Will the Buprenorphine help to reduce the withdrawal affects of Oxycontin withdrawal? Hope I am not being a nuisance.
When do u think your hazard to your own self?? The depression is so bad. What do u do?? Take a pill or sit in bed and just want to die?
I don't feel much w/d but the depression is BAD!!! when will that get better?? before I went on sub I had my doctor increase my zoloft to 150mg and plan to get some of the vitamins that have been listed (the ones that I can take w/ zoloft) The depression is the worst part of this for me. I started using when I got divorced and my dad died suddenly of a heart attack (all happened w/in 7 weeks). Please tell me this gets better!
My Dad, who is 73 is on day 8 without OXY and is still feeling bad. It's the depression and insomnea. I am sure his age and overall health doesn't really help the depression issue. Will these at least get better??
Hi, Im 16 years old and i'm an oxycontin addict. ive been using oxy's for about 4 months almost every day insufflating about 20-40mg's a day. recently ive decided to quit for personal reasons, its my 2nd day off of them now and ive been experiencing pretty severe depression, anti socialness, tiredness, and anxiety. how long do u predict it will take for the depression and anxiety to go away based on the frequency and dosage of my abuse?

What are the withdrawal symptoms off of Oxycontin of a long time abuser? Is it always different depending on the person?
If he is not on an antidepressant he can take some l'tyrosine for energy,SAM E for depression. a good multivitamin . Lots of water ....He can make it threw ,It is just going to be very rough . he may want to look into something like NA for afterward getting clean is the easy part staying clean is much harder.
Take lots of hot baths, Vitiamains, and drink lots of water to flush out toxins! I'm 59 days clean and life never looked so good! Also be careful about depression and fatigue the first 15 days!
Hello doctor, I was just wondering if you could suggest anything that would make detoxing from about 160-200mg of oxycontin a day even slightly more comfortable? I've tried cold turkey before and it was just a bit much lol! The RLS and the aches, depression, anxiety, etc. got the upper hand and I was just hoping there was something I could do to make this process a big more bearable. If not, just have to smile an bear it I suppose.
hey skiddy, is it possible for you to get to a doctor to talk to him about depression. it seems that depression and addiction coincide with each other and if you fixed the one problem, then maybe both could be fixed. just a thought, but nobody should have to suffer with depression, there are things that can be done for it.
When I was about 15 I started snorting Oxycontin 40mg, 80 mg, etc. I had no idea of the side effects when you don't have them. I'm now 21 and I have quit all drugs and I rarely have a drink, but I cannot stop doing Oxycontin without having terrible withdrawals. I have been wanting to stop for years, but I CANT and it is driving me insane! Can anyone please help me or give me some information about certain things I can do to take away the pain? I really need help.
My friend takes 30mg Oxycontin twice a day, for chronic pain. She is considering insufflation (crushing and snorting), as she has heard this may produce better analgesia. I am terrified this will lead to addiction, and also terrified that if she does this, and finds it produces better pain relief, her painkillers will be taken away from her altogether.
I take oxycontin for legitimate pain. I am on day 3 of not taking any. They put me on some new non-narcotic pain meds that are working great for my IC pain. But the withdrawals are more than I can handle. Getting off the pain meds was my idea. Would I be better off to taper off them, or is there something my Dr. could give me to make it more bearable? Any ideas???
Detox from Oxycontin in the amounts you wrote, 60-1200mg daily needs SUPERVISED detox...by a MD or facility. Why you'd go abuse the ER and get a lesser opoid is I dont know...you're obviously NOT wanting to get OFF the Opioids. What are you going to do when/if you have seizures...say 5 days down the road when you are out of Percocet? Get your self to a NA meeting and do so for the next 90 days...EVERY DAY.
but this one is really active so i ask all kinds of health/addiction/depression questions here if i have them. even the depression forum is kinda slow.
Hello, I used to take oxycontin for a long time for my back pain, im not proud to say that i became addicted to that medication. my back pain is gone, but i cant go through a normal day without taking more oxy's and i want it to stop. few months ago i went for a methadone program, and i stopped after few months as i was getting addicted to the methadone and it was making me feel worst than how oxy made me feel on the days that i dont take it.
