... Hi Sage, I'm glad you had a good trip and didn't over do it. We are leaving this Friday and it is so hard not to over do. If all you are on is the oxy 4 times a day I wouldn't really worry about it. I'm kind of even surprised the doc mentioned you trying to cut down because you are not on a lot of meds comparitively. First I'd make sure you have conversations with the... (15 replies)
... Hey Dani, It sounds like you have been through the ringer and that's something we don't always get from reading a first post. I don't know if I'm talking to someone that was just released from their surgeon after being tapered down but still has pain or someone like yourslef. Obviously Meth wouldn't be a first line drug with you as you have been exposed to many other meds. ... (12 replies)
... It has a slower onset and a slower termination of effect. So when dosed steadily, you shouldn't notice when a med kicks in or wears off. Just the lack of pain or anelgesia the med allows. ... (5 replies)

... with and side effects that you learn to deal with or deminsih over time. The loopiness or high opiates cause is the first thing that deminishes, it doesn't mean anelgesia has decreased, just the imapairment opiates cause. ... (3 replies)
... Hi CNP, It seems were both looking for a little distraction today. What your describing is referred to as BT "break through" pain. With meth, It can be treated two ways as far as meds, You can either have a few extra doses of meth available for BT pain, or you can use one of the other SA opiates for those times. Methadone doesn't block the effects of other pain meds as far as... (3 replies)
... relief or anelgesia, I think they will be very disapointed with other oopiates. However because meth does binmd to the MU receptor which is most responsable for anelgesia and least responasable for euphoria, my understanding and experience is that a proportianally correct amount of BT meds will provide additional anelgesia. ...

... Hey Marcia, I would thuink it's worth a try, Although they are both in thehe keto synthetic family, there are some slight differences in the way every med works. Although there may be a precise conversion as far as pain relief from one drug in the family, like Hydrocodone to oxycodone, there are other factors aside from anelgesia, On parer the conversion from oxy to Opana may...

... Hi Lezlee. Just wanted to say howdie, The other folks have exlplained it well, but you may not have the eproblems you did with post surgery anelgesia. One, it's IV and hits you instantly and #2 you just had anesthesia,. There are so many anesthetics they can use from minimal sedation and nerve blocks to full anesthesia with you on a vent. Anesthesia is notorious for causing... (14 replies)
... Hey Jon, I think the confusion is about using the term Narcotic properly. Narcotic doesn't just mean opiate or opioid derivative. Here is the Dorland's medical dictionary definition of narcotic. Narcotic narkotikos benumbing, deadening] 1. pertaining to or producing narcosis. 2. an agent that produces insensibility or stupor, applied especially to the opioids, ie., to any... (4 replies)

... Hi Tex, Sorry to hear your not getting relief yet but 10 mg oxycontin is a very low dose and I have read some reports of the clinical trials where there was mimimal difference between patients recieving 10mg of oxycontin twice a day and a plecebo. The reason is you don't reach a theraputic level of oxycodone to produce anelgesia and make much difference I ran a drug... (7 replies)
... HI JH Mithch, That's some of the most rediclous thinking on opiates I have heard. If you have an ortho surgeon doing a TKR that has a flat plolicy to never prescribe anything stronger than Vicodin, I wouldn't let him touch me. Years before long acting meds were available, when you had major surgery like back surgery or knee or hip replacements you normally wake up from... (6 replies)
... opiate effect due to it's opiate antagonist action. Purdue tried it and couldn't find a math equation that would work with their sytem, It basically stopped the anelgesia properties of OxyyC so they threw up their hands and said it couldn't be done withut spending hundreds of millions for a completely new delivery system and drug. ...

... Hey James, Meth will severely dampen the buzz of other oiates while on meth but that has nothing to do with anelgesia. But it's not an antagonist and doesn't block anelgesic effects of other opiates. I took BT meds succesfully while on a fairly high dose of meth for several years my BT dose was proportionately high but that's how it works with all meds. The important thing is... (10 replies)
... Hey Shelly, Initial sedation is the most common side effect of morphine. Every morphine products full prescribing info and PDR mentions the intial sedation and that if at all possible to try to wait it out because it does deminish with time. Nausea also deminishes with time but is easily treated with Phenergan, Visterill and some more powerful meds, thet are either more... (6 replies)

... Shore, I am now using Methadone for b/t replacing the Percs that I took for nearly 2 years, and I don't take it on a regular basis, just when I feel I need it, especially when it's near time to change my patch. Should I not use it this way? Should I take it regularily? I am prescribed 10mg 4 times daily. Just wondering. Oh and WHERE IS Standingman? I see his... (5 replies)

... HI Carla, Your doc gave you the best advice, Listen to your body. I took meth for 21/2 years before having the pump implanted. Although it has a 24 hour half life I have yet to meet anyone that takes t for pain satisfied with once a day dosing. When used in Hopice or for acute pain, 4-6 hurs is the usual dose interval. What I found was that I could take 4 doses 4 hours apart... (5 replies)
