How much does morphine cost on the street

Common Questions and Answers about How much does morphine cost on the street


4929120 tn?1361162745 So over time I basically get pushed out and I believe a lot of that has to do with the morphine. Obviously the government keeps a keen eye on doctors writing morphine prescriptions so the doctor's themselves have seemed wary about long term use (my opinion- I could be wrong but you would not believe my experiences). And as most seem to answer to whatever healthcare group they are in, I am just not a profitable patient.
Avatar n tn I am not 100% yet and look forward to that time but I would have to say I am about 75% and that's alot better than a year ago when I felt as though my whole life depended on when I can get my next refill and how (consumed more than the prescribed amount and pharmacies and doctor started catching on). Never knew you could get them on the street and it's definately a good thing.
Avatar n tn I see my neurologist on July 18,then the cardiologist on July 25.My neurologist still doesn't know about the cysts on my thyroid gland.I will tell her when I go on July 18 though.I don't know how long they've been on there,so a little bit longer with out doctor care shouldn't hurt them.Let me know how your doing and when you see your doctors again.GOD BLESS YOU SUE,MAY ALL OF HIS ANGELS WATCH OVER YOU AND KEEP YOU SAFE IN JESUS CHRISTS NAME I PRAY AMEN.
Avatar m tn i just keep wondering what i am or not doing to get these bugs to go away and the jitters....took my pilols back to the pharmacy today and thjey gave me a huge pat on the back...i was proud. i love your inspiration!!!
Avatar n tn Enough talking, hey, I wish all of you staff, everyone, all the best wishes and health for 2012, dont worry too much about all the guff on the end of the world, I did for a while, but remember this , individually, we can do NOTHING , collectivelly, yes, we can, but all of us have enough to worry about than speculation, right ?? How many times, have how many religuos organisations got in wrong ?? its truelly unbeleivable, take each day as it comes, and that s it.
Avatar f tn My brother declined operation, so they medicated him and he's over feeling the way he does on these drugs. How will he be able to manage the pain, once he's completely himself again?
1170366 tn?1263923079 It doesn't bother most people but if you're in that 15% group you'll notice almost immediately how much better you feel on the subutex. Plus it comes in a generic, it's buprenorphine, which is the main drug in both the suboxone/subutex anyway. I don't miss on this one very often. I will bet that you're having a reaction to the naloxone. You'll notice it quickly if I'm correct. That is my best advice. Hope it helps. God bless.
Avatar m tn I luckily never shot any of it up, which I'm grateful for because I know how much worse the detox would have been, not to mention how much further down the rabbit hole I could have gone. I already owe my family so much, it's ridiculous really.
Avatar n tn If not, I would probably get off the Methadone and just go cold turkey, although I am sure my symptoms would be hell because of the size of my habit. How much Methadone were you on for that extended period of time? Did it help you get off the smack, or did you relapse?
Avatar f tn I think you wrote in another thread that you also buy methadone on the gets a little confusing with all the different threads going... If I'm understanding correctly, you were taking high doses of pills every day and you have to buy extra methadone away from the clinic. That makes you unstable right now. You have to talk to the clinic about this because its their job to get you at a comfortable dose and you need to keep yourself safe...
Avatar n tn For me, as probably many others, each w/d , from each narcotic/opiate/..ect is different, each time. Depending on how much you were taking, how often you took it, how you were transporting it to your bloodstream,tapering,c/t,ect.You have to do what feels right for YOUR body. My,2nd time off oxys was much easier.This may take some weight off your chest.Now go gettem....
3060903 tn?1398568723 ”2 Most people know there is a prescription painkiller epidemic underway but few realize how much the government is enabling it, how much taxpayers are subsidizing it, and how this is the root cause of the current heroin epidemic.

Avatar n tn LOTS of exercise... or on the floor of a county jail, much to the amusement of the other prisioners and guards... Just keep doing the best you can and keep coming to this forum. and keep an angel on your shoulder!!
Avatar n tn Tell the doc the truth about how much you've been using. If you enter suboxone treatment, come back and tell us how you're doing. I'm particularly interested. Medical treatment isn't in my financial picture now, but somewhere down the road I want to try bup, too. Good luck!
541465 tn?1219431486 so it all depends on your dose. the lower the dose the easier it is to lose weight. but it does come down to control. i think methadone is great there comes a time where you have to get off. its only intended to be temporary to help you learn how to fuction again and live a healthy life. but if you do wanna come off it take it slow. figure however long you have been on it thats how long it will take to get off.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Well, with the increase in people illegally abusing prescription painkillers, these medications have become much more difficult – and more expensive – to obtain. Heroin on the other hand is unregulated, cheap and readily available from a local dealer.
Avatar n tn I think as long as I keep under the 2 week mark, the w/d shold be minimal. How long have you been on it? I think she is on Subutex not Suboxone.....
1684282 tn?1505701570 Yes it is far easier and faster to get a high from heroin than a high from life, but how many more people have to die to get through to those young ones picking up the syringes for the first time? So why did Phil Hoffman die? He had the money to spend on the best rehabs, he had people to live for, and he had a fantastic carrier on stage and in film. All that was nothing compared to the high of the false happiness and well-being that that syringe of heroin gave him.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar m tn why have you not ever bashed anyone for giving tapering advice on any other pain meds? There are posts on here all the time for people asking a how to taper or how to get off their meds. When it comes to benzos or tramodol people always say it must be tapered due to certain risks. Robert is not telling the guy to just stop cold turkey. He said he would share his knowledge that he has because he has tapered off of it himself and has helped many start the process.
Avatar f tn I don't know that the Lor's are worse on your body than the Morphine, they are both detrimental. So, you took a dose of the morphine today, right? How high of a dose did you take? You have a decision to make here. You can wean off the morphine with Lortabs, but that is dangerous in many ways. You could go into a short-term detox program. You could go into a 30 day rehab program.
233616 tn?1312790796 Would you have even made it this far, with a habit keeping you tied to perpetual poverty or periods of homelessnesss? How would you be faring, on tx and on the street for instance?? Perhaps it would help if you read up on the potential complications of tx and pain-killers in combo. I did, and that's why it seems fairly obvious to me how doctors arrived at their treatment protocols on this.
Avatar n tn I'm the girl who wrote about the MMT and cost per week. The way the clinic detoxs is 5mgs every 1 or 2 weeks depending on the individual's comfort level. I was in group today and a girl went from 80 mgs to 30mgs using the minus 5mgs per week and stated she felt no discomfort at all. The counselor stated that it starts to get a little harder at around 20 mgs, you can experience discomfort. PATRICE....
Avatar n tn I have also used on and off Methadone,Your right there does seem to be a bias on this forum in regard to methadone.I believe the majority of the drama in regard to how hard and terrible it is to get off meth is from those looking for a quick fix.Cronic pain requires also a remedy,unlike those that only use for the Eurphoric and or buzz.They are in a different class.
Avatar n tn unless I turn in the compassionate doctor who has for the last five years made it possible for me to satisfy my need for opiates without double doctoring, forgering scripts or buying black market pills, they won't admit me into the maintenance program. So you want to know how I'm doing? That's how I'm doing. I've totaly given up on the MMT program.
Avatar f tn My doctor has said that perhaps he will have to send me to a pain management specialist and place me on Oxy-Contin or one of the stronger morphine-based drugs, but I do not want to lie there like a vegetable all day. I have things I still feel passionate about and want to accomplish in this lifetime. Between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., I am able to recover some piece of that old passion until the pain begins to build again.
Avatar m tn In every single forum where Suboxone has come up, there is also a mad debate over how long people should be on it, how much people should take, and how everyone should taper. The same general statement relates to every topic in this forum, and that is that everyone is different. Yes, for some it is a lifesaver, and they could not imagine life without it, and they would not have been able to quit without it. Some of those people can taper, or quit cold turkey, and be totally fine.
Avatar n tn ) I wish you well on your test on the 10th. I will be thinking of you as well. Sending positive vibes....
