Is this some kind of joke?  (May 16, 2009 | post #6)

choosing best breakthrough...whats your experience?

Both will work well for BT pain. You may find the pops will not last too long--it's just the nature of fentanyl. If you have sharp BT pain a few times a day, the pops may be good, but if BT is more frequent, you might get better relief with Opana.  (May 16, 2009 | post #10)

Excess Oral Doses Of Acurox(R) Tablets Are Disliked By Su...

I agree, but Pain Theraputics will still make a killing from Remoxy whenever it gets to market. From their website: "Remoxy is intended to meet the needs of physicians who appropriately prescribe opioid painkillers and who seek to minimize risks of drug diversion, abuse or accidental patient misuse. Remoxy resists injection or snorting. Published data also show that freezing, crushing or submerging Remoxy in high-proof alcohol for hours at a time releases just a fraction of oxycodone at time points when abusers presumably expect to get high." As you can see, they are already using the same kind of marketing technique originally used by Purdue for Oxycontin...althou gh building in a coutermeasure for submersion in alcohol is, admittedy, a nice touch.  (May 9, 2009 | post #5)

Opana ER

I'm not experinced with snorting them, but, to state the obvious, you should start low. Opana is oxymorphone which has a very low oral bioavailability (about 10%, I think). Take them for what they are worth, but some user reports say snorting boosts this up to around 40% Even with a such a low BA, I found Opana to have very potent pain killing properties. Eventhough you have a high tolerance, you should respect this drug and be very careful.  (May 9, 2009 | post #2)

Discount Coupons

Sorry, buddy. I've seen your posts, but I'm not from FL so can't help you. Have you tried Angie's List or websites that let people rate businesses and service providers? It's a long shot but worth a try if no one responds. Good luck, Tomm  (May 9, 2009 | post #2)

this website looks legit check it out

If you click on the "live photo" it is labeled oxyco-done [sic] 40/325. I don't think this drug is manufactured in this combo. Although there may be some sites somewhere that are legit, you're much more likely to get fake (or no) drugs when you order from the Internet.  (May 9, 2009 | post #43)

I don't have any authority here, not even the "self-given " kind. I just asked questions. If it was a joke, then fine.  (May 8, 2009 | post #320)

pill mills: Senate votes for drug database to stop Florid...

Getting this system set up will take time, maybe a lot of time. I work (as a contractor)on tech projects with state agencies. You can't just pour the data in a database and press the 'on" button. Once the bill is signed, these things have to happen: 1. They have to post an RFP (request for proposal)and find a vendor to set it up....after it's funded. There are probably a limited number of vendors who could even create this kind of database, but the state still has to go through the competitive bid process and then have some state agency decide who gets the contract. This will take months. 2. They contract with a vendor who has a basic database, but they still have to integrate it into the Florida tech infrastructure, work out all the bandwidth issues, and solve all sorts of problems to make the whole thing work statewide and to work with all the different platforms. You can't imagine how much bandwidth they will have to find or create to support exising internet traffic and all the increased traffic from every pharmacy in the state. All tech applications phuck up at first, and the database will be no exception, so they will have to debug it, do load testing, and do all sorts of other things to get it to work. This will take at least a year. 3. They will have to train all the people using the system. 4. Since pharmacies only have to update every 15 days, and since the amount of data will be huge, I wouldn't expect waves of LE breaking down doors as a result of this database for at least two years. The fact that the database is updated every two weeks will make it difficult to catch doctor shoppers in real time. Texas started this same thing on 9/1/09 of this year. There haven't been any head lines about patients being arrested or a crack down on doctor shoppers. Unless you are getting a whole lot of scripts per month, LE doesn't care about you. They don't have the resources to go get every person who picks up an extra script every month, and Walgreens is too busy with their assembly line prescription filling to check the database to see if your script is legit. Even after the database went in, it seems like your insurance company is more likely to bust you for doctor shopping than the state of Texas. I'm not saying you shouldn't be concerned. This law may prove to be terrible, but panic seems premature. Nothing much has changed in Texas since our PMP went into effect.  (May 7, 2009 | post #110)

Sir, I am new here and have read only this one post by you. But I am puzzled about a couple of things: 1. Why would a doctor offer to receive controlled drugs bought (by a stranger)over the Internet to verify they were "real"? 2. Why are you so concerned that people believe you are who you say you are? To put the above in context: I've been lurking here for a few weeks and it almost hurts to read the desperate posts from people in withdrawl and pain, trying to find relief on the Internet. Although it's been a long time, I've been in that position and the memory is still vivid. The thoughts and feelings stay with you (being a former addict yourself, you know what I mean). Part of me wonders why, with so much to lose, you would volunteer to break the law (by receiving the drugs) and why choose this way to help when there are other ways a lot less dangerous. Some people are recklessly altruistic so if that's the reason, then OK. If you were joking then sorry for being dense...but if I took it seriously others might. I've only read this one post and look forward to reading others. I am not judging you (how could I having been here a day). People should think before they do something they would regret.

Hi all

mysticcherokee, I'm not here to sell or buy...I'm not actually on Oxy any more (but I am on a different CII). I've been stable on meds for a while and am here mostly to just talk to CP people. I have three young kids so, except for work, I don't get out much. This seemed like a lively place so I thought I would post.  (May 7, 2009 | post #7)

Help in pain. hu&son dis of pills

You don't know me but I had almost this exact experience. The only thing I would add would be to amplify what the person above suggested (Itsmejules, I think). I had this very same problem with my X (thought I was being "lazy" when jacked up in pain, biched about pills, etc). I made her come with me to the PM doc, he explained everything, and she started to ease up. Of course, my marriage later disintegrated in a spectacular way (so my story ends differently than the one above) but the divorce wasn't due to ignorance of how debilitating pain can be.  (May 7, 2009 | post #18)

Hi all

I've been lurking for a bit and decided that I should introduce myself properly. I'm a single-parent CP patient of many years and have jumped through various treatment hoops. I grew up in a small town, but I sucessfully escaped to a cool city (Austin). Since small-town boy comes to big city "David Copperfield kind of crap" is rarely interesting, I will cut this short by wishing everyone well. Regards, Tomm  (May 7, 2009 | post #1)
