Hello there people, i recently was prescribed 30 20MG oxycodone pills and i consumed only 8 of them if im correct, a few days later i got another bottle with the same exact amount and this time i did comsume all of them with in a 7 to 10 day period maybe a little less i can't recall anyway... i have used oxycodone before and i have experienced horrible withdrawal symptoms although it was at much higher doses and more prolonged use, now my question is why am i getting bad withdrawals if the dosage period was so short term and in lower doses?
oh and before this my last contact with oxycodone was at the end of april of this year
When the body becomes physically dependent on a substance, it is forever changed. What may have taken your cells years to adapt to in initial abuse, can happen in weeks. Addiction is progressive, mentally and physically. When use is started again, the addict picks up where they left off. That's why an addict can never use again.
Thanks for the comment weaver, eventhough you may know the subject, this question was answered wrong im not asking for your advice on addiction just on withdrawals, this drug is nothing to play with and it is very dangerous but im not what you would call a habitual user or an addict, so please if you know just answer the question next time.
Sorry, replace the word addiction with physical dependence. Same answer. If you experienced withdrawal in the past, you experienced physical dependence, therefore brain chemistry change. It is progressive each time one becomes physically dependent to similar chemicals and withdraws from them. Withdrawal increases each time.
I am thinking weaver did answer correctly But maybe I am wrong .
good Luck to you either way In 3-5 days you will get over the WD part and should be fine if you dont have any mental addiction to the pills at all.
Good Luck to you :))))
Maybe someone else will come along and have another answer for you.
Thank you for correcting, the thing is since april i was oxycodone free and i felt no need to use and i was fine i mean everything turned out fine, is it normal to feel hopeless during withdrawals? does it get better over time like it did last time? that's also where im confused
Thank you, i am aware of the addicting properties of this drug how ever i try to stay at bay and proceed with caution when i take them, im not goin to lie last time after i detox i did think about em but nothing more...
Hopeless, unmotivated, low energy, anxious, depression, are all pretty normal. Not always to the same degree in each person, but common on some level. Your natural state will return. Without heavy abuse, you should return to 100% of the old you. I find that staying distracted and not focusing on how you feel helps. Exercise also speeds up the healing of that hopelessness. Hang in there, you'll feel better soon.
Sorry, Grim, but (strictly in my opinion- IMO) people who are not physically dependent or "addicted" to oxy do not feel hopeless or "think" about oxy's when they quit taking them. Addiction is IN THE MIND, TOO!
I know, you "already know this" and I am "answering you "wrong".
You just aren't coming across very "open" here. Your words conflict when I read them.
My hubby has had major back surgery and recently had a rod rammed up his ankle;
He could take his pain meds as prescribed (USUALLY WAYYY LESS) and NOT feel hopeless or "think" about the pain pills AFTER HE QUIT taking them. He might have had to adjust his GI and had some physical signs of not taking them anymore. BUT HE IS NOT AN ADDICT!....
MY POINT....time will tell you what you want to know.....if you cannot relate to what Weaver and Conhall have said.
Since you have used oxy's long term previously (at least until April) and then been off and on again.....guess you will know after w/drawing whether it is a problem for you.
For me, I knew the dangers and addiction probability, but had no insurance, needed 2 discs replaced in my back and to SURVIVE THE PAIN, took pain pills to make it thru life (but in bed, mostly).
Only you know you! Keep hangin around here......lots and lots of experience, variation and Wisdom here!
Blessings from Ks
Thank you so much for your reply, I know it sounds conflicting and i know what you mean and obviously im not perfect and maybe showing sings and maybe im becoming, became or are dependant to some level
