Common Questions and Answers about Prepare oxycontin for injection

oxycontin

I have been taking Oxycontin for four months for my back. I have a tethered spinal cord with disc complications. I have so many allergies to medication that the Oxycontin was the only resourse for my pain. I am afraid of becoming addicted and have recently taken myself off for one full week with no with drawal effects. During that time I tried Ultram and it did nothing to help or relieve the pain. So I went back to the Oxycontin.
It wasnt as tamper proof as they had thought. While they may have added an extra 10-15 minutes in the time it takes to prepare for injection,this is a price most addicts are willing to pay. MST or morphine sulphate tablets were being diverted by backyard chemists here in NZ and turned into homemade heroin with a purity and potency that would rival the efforts of any accomplished chemist.
Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
I actually got my LH surge on Saturday, so I begin my first round of meds on Tues 2/12. I have to use a combo of an estrogen patch and Ganirelix injection for a total of 5 or 6 days until I get AF. Once AF arrives, I begin my stim meds and should have my retrieval somewhere around March 1. I have not kicked the type A bucket yet, but I am finding more ways to relax. I have cut way back on work because the IVF cycle will be time consuming with all of the follow up b/w.
OxyNorm is available in 5, 10 and 20mg gelcapsules, and favoured among IV injecting opioid users because they contain only 2 inert binders, both insoluble, making it easy to prepare them for injection.[citation needed] OxyNorm is also available as 10mg/ml concentrated liquid in 100ml bottles in some countries, and OxyNorm 1ml injection ampoules of 10mg/ml are currently in their trial stage by the CFK.
I have to stop either way to get my pain levels back within manageable levels. I am going in for another injection on the 14th. It has been 6 months since my last injection as getting my gall bladder removed in December interfered with that injection.
I have been a part-time student for several years as I recognize I may need to prepare for an alternative career due to health issues. I recently had to take a leave of absence/FMLA only to find out my for-profit employer never enrolled me in the hospital provided benefit of STD or LTD. I am between a rock and a hard place.
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCONTIN FOR THE SAME PERIOD AND THERE IS NO COMPARISON, FOR BOTH ADDICTION AND PAIN RELIEF. OXYCONTIN IS A MUCH BETTER PAIN RELEIVING DRUG. OR ASK YOUR DOC TO PRESCRIBE ORAMORPH.
I for one am for turning in Drs. who over prescribe, I watched my Mom go through numerous detoxes & it was disgusting what the Drs. had given her!! I have back problems & right now my favorite drug in the world is Lodine, it works better than a vicodin for pain (for me) it is non narcotic (sorry...no buzz) and non addictive. Bottom line is it works better than vicodins or percocets for relieving pain, why arent more Drs. trying this avenue?
Did the epideral injections, brought on diabetes, did physical therapy, tried a chyropractor(sp), he admitted he couldn't help, also recevied a tez unit . I don't for see any other treatments left for me. Right now I take enough oxycodone, and other type drugs, that it's effecting my personality,bouts of depression, anxiety, paramoid, and making me act like a teenager(I'm 37) also, and after surgery, they have to ween me off them. It also effecting my job. They think I'm drunk, NOT!
I was thrown through a window in a high-speed rollover. I died several times, and had wonderful NDE's. Drs told my family to prepare for the fact that either I'd die, be brain-dead, and/or paralyzed. I basically had one thought - when I finally could think - and that was, "This situation is unacceptable!" Had a trach, so couldn't talk. Also couldn't move, see or hear for 2 weeks while the drs waited for me to be stable enough to live through a back surgery. I was a mess.
What she is doing is she started me out with taking 7 vic's for 5 days, then I'll go to 6 for 5 more days, then 5, 4,3,2,1. I hope this will work for me. This forum has also helped alot. I'm trying to open myself up to people. THis might help you as well. I am also going to councilling and I'm taking ativan 2mg. for the anxiety that most people face when withdrawing. I wish you all the luck. Keep posting and let us know how you're doing.
I am currently on Lortab 10m and oxycontin 20m. I am going in for elective surgery soon, already had my consult. My surgeon knows all the meds I am on, and just about told me I could have anything I just about wanted for post-op pain. I want something stronger then Lortab but not the oxy. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know my body is used to narcotics and I am told the pain is pretty bad. Is Vicodin ES stronger? I quess I could ask for Morphine but don't know what strength.
Sometimes, in war, you have to lay in your foxhole and do nothing but wait in silence. There's time for action and there's a time for inaction. To know the difference is good. It is wise. At the moment I'm beating myself up badly for not being able to move and certainly NOT being able to drive in this state! Come on now; I don't want to hurt anyone because my driving abilities are impaired. Let's act with intelligence shall we?
type tapes from Amazon around the time of my first injection. Don't know if they helped or not -- no way to know -- and I certainly don't see any downside to these tapes -- but after seeing just about a two-log drop at week one, I have to consider the possiblity that my RVR and SVR were predetermined to some extent on SOC -- be it because of my genes, my specific viral strain, my immune system, or some combination.
So, finally, in November 2006 he referred me to a Pain Management Dr. who tried the Sacroiliac Steroid Injection. It helped my right side for 1 week, my left side for 2 weeks. He has now asked me to think about an implant of the spinal cord stimulator. I've heard good and bad things about this implant and it frightens me. I think I may try to get a 3rd opinion, actually a 2nd opinion from a Dr. at the University of Chicago.
Would anyone know where I can find his formula. Also, thanks for the replies. For the last two full weeks I have reduced the "doses" I take per day. Going from at least 5 and usually 7-8 per day, I am now just "needing" to have some in the morning, afternoon and before bed. I also have reduced the amount per dose by a few pills. I have been reading alot of info on some Narcotics Detoxification Under Anesthesia clinic.
she has had too many surg for endo for me to remember. it was horribly painful. her first pg wasnt too bad with pain. after the birth of her dd she again had horrible pain. she became pg with ds and it was very painful due to the scar tissue. after she had her son (now 11 months) she is on the pill. she skips her sugar pills and goes right into the next pac to prevent her period. she has had nothing more than some mild discomfort and is not having to take pain meds anymore.
, don't leave the doctor's office unless they can give a very good explanation for why neuralgia would not be worth considering (and then prepare to watch the doctor try to fish for an answer). The reality is that any spine surgery carries the risk of ne ve damage, so any chronic post-op pain is potentially due to nerve trauma during surgery.
Honestly, when I decided to quit my RX's, I read some first thankfully, for I had no idea I would withdrawl! So I was able to prepare with the Thomas recipie. But if not for my autoimmue disorder, and knowing physically I am not well enough to leave home everyday, I would have fallen prey to methadone, as my perceptions after reading and finding out about physical then mental wds from opiates, thought methadone was a fix. A place to go get help, and never go through physical and mental wds.
Now I'm trying to get off hrdrocodone..All for pain..Best of luck..And it will get better. This is a great place for help..
I am in day 4 of Subutex withdrawal. I was on it for 5 months. The first 4 at 4mg a day, the last month gradually tapering down to .5 mg. I am in withdrawal HELL. No energy, I take vitamin B supplements, which help very short term. I am taking clonidine, which helped some as well. But the RLS is driving me insane. HOW can I stop this? And when will I start to feel better. Can long term sub users who have gone through withdrawal please help me?
So I took my last dose of heroin (3 bags) on wednesday night, thursday I was fully clean, friday I was clean for half the day and then I started getting out of breath and got horrible anxiety (mind you I'm doing this alone) so I took one 50 mg ultram. I still feel relatively ok physically.
ALSO ALTHOUGH THERE IS THE NUMBNESS I HAVE PERIODIC ITCHING FEELING AND CRAWLEY FEELINGS IN MY CHIN AND LIP, DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE INFERIOR ALVELOAR NERVE DAMAGE..WILL IT GET BETTER IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN TAKE TO HELP THIS SITUATION..
I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...also could this drug alter my brain function since I know it is used for bi-polar and seizure disorder...
