I have a friend whose mom was prescribed Oxycontin...she no longer uses the pills and there are 10 left. Does anyone know what the street price is on this (supposedly this stuff is like heroin if you snort or inject it) anyone try it? Is it worth trying?

DO NOT TRY IT / DO NOT SELL IT / ITS NOT YOURS / SHE IS SICK AND IT IS AN ACT OF CRUELTY .

I think they're like $20-$30 a pill (a bit more than ecstasy?), but this is not from first hand experience.

A friend of mine was given this stuff after surgery -- HATED it. All the stupidity of being high without the euphoria. Asked for a milder painkiller.

Why do you think they call it dope?

It's totally the bomb. $40 for the big ones. A word of warning--snort half of it first just to make sure you don't die (a risk one is definitely taking) and don't drink too much or mix it with too much other crap. Be careful and it's hours of relaxing fun, like Club Med in pill form.

Probably shouldn't be posting this at work tho...

Why would one pill kill you if it's meant for medication?

Kris, Thursday, 21 February 2002 01:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Oh, snort, nevermind.

Kris, Thursday, 21 February 2002 01:00 (seventeen years ago) link

adam..any idea on how many mg you snort? the pills she has are 10mg

kevin enas, Thursday, 21 February 2002 01:00 (seventeen years ago) link

I'm sending you Adam's Patented Oxycontin advice via personal mail. Look for it!

adam, Thursday, 21 February 2002 01:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Oh, and one pill snorted can be dangerous 'cause Oxycontin is time- release. The pill has a built-in "plastic matrix" (as the PDR calls it) that dissolves slowly in one's tummy, releasing opiate goodness at a controlled rate, which is why it lasts for like 12 hours when one swallows it. Crushing it up to snort or shoot does away with the whole matrix thing and allows for massive Oxycontin action all at once.

I had 40mg of oxycontin Friday night..40mg of oxycodone saturday night..20mg of oxycodone Sunday. It emptied my stomach the first time (eating half a pizza beforehand was a bad idea) but the effect was amazing. the contin hits fast and hard lasting for 2 hours wasted and 2 hours coming down while the codone is slower and more relaxing...if only stuff like this was free every weekend

Kevin, You're obviously not a very bright person. In fact, why beat around the bush? The fact is you're a moron and a criminal. If you suffer devastating physical or legal consequenses from your stupidity, then I say GOOD! You deserve it. One less dumb-ass in the world.

Opiates, synthetic or otherwise, are not cool. There's plenty of other drugs out there that will get you plenty high without destroying your life. Every junkie thought at some time that it couldn't happen to them.

Kevin died from a drive-by googling.

I'm glad Jerry's here two years after the fact to steer our boy Kevin in the right direction

I think all of you are crack heads! i hope you learn a good lesson from snorting and shooting up shit like that

Seems like an important development: Purdue family members added in their personal capacity to New York's omnibus opiate lawsuit

I've got a good "well, actually" here, not relevant to the revive sorry, the bioavailability of oxy is lower when taken nasally than when taken orally. adam from 17 years ago is a dumbass

ILX was a real trip in 2002 huh

frogbs, Thursday, 28 March 2019 17:06 (eight months ago) link

IIRC only nerds read the Internet in 2002 so you could say whatever you wanted

Holds hand up.

Chewshabadoo, Thursday, 28 March 2019 17:38 (eight months ago) link

By 2002 I'd been reading and writing stuff on the internet for about five years, making me ultra-nerdy.

2002 was the year where it was inconceivable to use drugs in any way other than snorting, I guess

I remember telling my dad in the mid 90s that for xmas I wanted "the world wide web."

It's too bad ILX requires a login, we're missing out on some quality drop-ins.

xp In 2002 I unfortunately knew a lot of people whose preferred method of drug ingestion was smoking (meth).

four months pass...

reading American Overdose at present and it's a tough read. Not just having known a couple people back home who have dealt with the fallout from OxyContin addiction, not just the awareness of the cost of it across the country, but the brazen "fake news"-ish attitude of Purdue and even some of the FDA.
