I had previously been dry a couple weeks and was taking ativan
3mg/day. On July 4th, I slipped and drank. A lot. I fell and was injured, rushed to hospital, given ativan and pain meds, released 2 days later. Never took any pain meds before except tylenol or ibuprofen (I'm 50). Got home and was in severe pain. I refused the oxycodone script at the hospital.
Last wednesday, i couldn't take it any more and got 40 5mg of oxycodone and have been taking 6 a day.
