I just found out my son, 20 has been using oxycontin for 2years. He takes about 3 80mg. He is now barely functioning and takes them all during the day. We saw a doctor that wants to start him on suboxone. I am ovewrwhelmed and don't know what to do.
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.
I have been reading your posts and I see a lot of people who have been clean for a couple days or even a couple months, but I havent seen any posts about those of you who were addicted to smoking oxycontin on tin foil. First let me tell you my story.. I got into pain pills just like most of you, I was 18 in high school and pills were all over the place. I had tried vicodin and percs, but rarely used them, I was into ADD medication at the time.
She was prescribed to Oxycontin for her pain. I believe she is addicted to the Oxy's. I was wondering what some of her symptoms would be if she was indeed addicted?

I had a few questions about the withdrawal symptoms of OxyContin. I had used it (smoking and inhaling) for about 2 months starting at around 20mg a day, peaking at about 80-120mg a day and then weaning off down to 20mg again. I saw a doctor about detox and there wasn't much help there. I realize that my usage was very minimal over a long period but I still experienced withdrawals. its been about a month now and I am noticing pimple-like rashes mainly on my legs but slowly spreading upwards.
The constipation was unbearable so I took myself off and managed the pain with perks. Perks got less effective so they decided to put me on oxycontin where I have been stuck for about 6 months now. I got to a point where I was taking about 10 40 mil a day to manage the pain then when the pain was gone i stopped taking them....omg I never expected my knees to ache the way they did and the insomnia was unbearable. I decided to stay on them and taper myself.
It's been a little over 24 hours since the last time i used oxycontin 80mg, i know there are people on here with serious problems to legitamte conditions and would probably be extremely mad to hear my story. I'm looking for whatever help and support i can get, recently i been smoking approx anywhere from 2-20 oxy 80 mg a day for about 1 month and a half now.
I am unfortunately hooked on oxycontin. I have arthritis of the back as well as fractured vertebrae. Now I am ready to go cold turkey. Any suggestions on how to get thru it.
I have been taking Oxycontin for about 3 years and for the past few months its gotten out of control. Started with a few 40s per day, then twice that, then more, etc. etc. etc. over a 3 year period. Quantity was still reasonable til about 3 months ago. I have been taking 1200-1600 mg per day now for about 3 months, first because it really made me feel great but lately because without I felt horrible.
I have been tapering my amount of Oxycontin for about a month now. I am down to 10mg in the AM and 10mg in the PM. My doctor had me taking them three times a day before. I really feel the difference with the twice a day dose. He is having me cut down 10mg every week. I was fine until this week. Does anyone have any advice for me? I can not stand the weekness in my legs already and I am not finished tapering. I am really afraid of cutting down to once a day on Tuesday.....help!
I took my last dose of OxyContin almost 10 days ago. I was prescribed it for Extreem back and neck pain due to an MVA. I started out 80mg 2x day. Then went to 60mg 2x a day. Then the last time I saw my doc I told him to decrease again to 40mg 2x A day. Well stupid me went through the percsription WAY TOO FAST. I went through a months worth in TWO WEEKS! I was in so much pain at the time I did not care about the consequenses. Anyway......
Made me suicidal, withdrawn, etc. I'm trying to taper off the norco's, down to 3-4 a day. I, myself, am finding that smoking grass is really helping. I can do this without fear of addiction to it, I'm always around it and never crave it. But it is helping control my knee and back pain, and also the craving for more pills. It also helps with my sense of humor and reminds me of the good in myself.
Is there anyone out there that has come clean off smoking oxycontin.. I am just wondering if there are any tips to help with the desire to smoke? I am finding that this is one of my main problems I crave the act of smoking just as much if not more than the high itself.. I am asking because I intend to quit no matter what I just want to know if there is anything to help with that part of this mental torture!
I have been smoking Oxycontin for about 3-4 months and want to quit! Is it easy to get suboxone? I don't want to go to rehab because I don't want my brother to know I smoke.
I quit smoking oxy 80's over 3 days ago, well at least i tried, what i mean to say is i use to smoke 500-1500mg a day for a month and a half straight i really binged. Then i had 1 oxy 80 left in the house i found over 24+ ago i swallowed it. So if you count that 1 relapse as starting over i'm now at 24-30 hrs of detox.
My son has been smoking oxycontin pills. He said he wants to get clean and is now taking some form of perception medication to get off the pills. He is also getting this medication off the street. What is this medication and is it also dangerous?
Ive lead a life of addiction....to the fullest extremes...... I started smoking cigarettes at age 12....(still smoking..) then at about age 14, started smoking pot.... Then at around age 17, I started snorting cocaine...very heavily I might add..... I would go day to day with about 1.5 to 3.5 grams of coke daily... After about two years of coke i got sick of feeling so paranoid and sick of just letting drugs control my body altogether. I was clean (minus the pot) for about two years.
About three yrs ago I tore the miniscus in my right knee and was prescribed 750 mg vicodens they hardely helped with the pain and my doctor moved my script to 40 mg oxycontin which helped greatly. I was taking my meds as directed at first but soon went through my monthly script in 10-14 days.I was buying 80's from a work friend and after my surgery was well into the thrawls of addiction. The withdrawels were hell but I made it through cold turkey .Now I've started again.
You'll start to feel better really soon...every day will start to get better and better. As for the smoking grass, I personally would recommend it...it helped me tremendously, and it's all natural. There's only a stigma about it b/c it's "illegal", but it grows naturally from the earth, put here as a natural stress-reliever...and these are stressful times!
i'm down to 60mg of oxycontin per day. rough saying there. id' like to switch to suboxone. what is the conversion factor? how many mg., of suboxone = 60 mg./day of oxycontin? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1008307'>oxycodone</a>.
So this is day 2 after my relapse and i have to say i feel a lot better today then my original day 2, maybe it's because i use to do 500-1500 mg Oxycontin a day for a month and a half and then i stopped cold turkey, after only 2 days i ingested 1 Oxycontin 80 mg. But other then that i would be on day 4 right now, but still however i feel much better not then last time i hit day 2, I've also been drinking lots of water and taking multivitamins.
This is day 2 of my detox journey to quit oxycontin 80mg.. last night i took 2mg of xanax to help me sleep and let me tell you after hearing how it works wonders for many many people this did put me to sleep for about 2 hours however i woke up very anxious,kicking the sheets and going nuts after those 2 hours, i smoked 2 ciggaretts and calmed myself down a bit and i'm back on here to ask for some more advice, I am very exhausted physicaly and i just want to sleep but i can't!
