I have some Percocets left over from my surgery
So , I decided to try getting high of them , you know , My philosophy is to experience everything in life at least once.

I am taking 3 pills , thats 15 mg of oxyxodone and 1000 mg of tylenol (still below the 4000 mg daily limit, too lazy to do a cold water extraction)

21. Yeah, my brother discovered her
and immediately ordered her CD online and informed his wife that he'd finally found someone he'd be willing to cheat on her with. :P

42. Oh, we should do a thread on people we'd like to cheat with if we had the chance.

Regrettably, it's always some old guy who just disgusts other people who probably has bad breath and can't get it up...

Or someone who is less than half my age.

Ah, the richness of 68 years.

Good night and good luck.

4. Follow that up with 2 glasses of Chardony and...
a couple of small bowls of Humboldt County Skunk Bud.
You wont be able to wipe the smile off your face.

5. From what I know of Percocet,
you can't void your bowels for 5 days after even one. Good luck with that. Have some fiber ready.

10. Are you a nurse or something?
Healthcare professionals are the only people I know who use the term "void" in that context.

;) By the way, a :hug: for you, Liberal Sailor. You're one of the most thoughtful posters on this board.

24. Because Opium and its derivatives
are very constipating. So I understand.

:D

Makes your pain go away or keep it under control, but backs up your plumbing faster than hair in the bathtub ....

:yoiks:

The hospital always recommended Colace.

There's actually a funny bit about it in Trainspotting.

28. Well put
*actually* :P

I saw the bit you're talking about in Trainspotting. And I'll tell ya, I had to be on Percocet when I sprained my neck. I got off it quickly because I hated the way it felt. Plus there was the dry-mouth thing.

41. Seconded on the side effects of Percocet. I have about 60 of them left from
the August 2007 - February 2008 cracked tooth experience. (It was finally extracted on 2/20) The experience was expensive and didn't work out the way I wanted it to.

But I survived.

I used to take the Percocet 1/2 at a time with TWO glasses of prune juice.

26. True dat. (gross post, avoid if don't wanna deal w/gross!)
But I've had personal experience where I was on Fentanyl (sp?) and Morphine (both didn't kill my pain) while having severe pain and diarrhea (again, sp?) from my Lupus, and I WISHED that would happen... but it didn't.

I kept having to go "void" myself as you said it - which makes it sound better than the wording I had in my mind :P - which is hell when you have trouble moving through the purple haze to find the bathroom. If only I'd gotten plugged up!

Even my bowels are weird as my personality :silly:

And I put a warning since I was gonna discuss my bowels voiding - just in case someone is like eating while reading or whatever.

12. Well, that's dumb.
Three percocets will probably make you sleepy much more than they'd make you buzzy. And if you take them on an empty stomach, they'll make you feel like utter and complete shit.

The other poster who said save 'em is right. It's nice to have a few of those around for unexpected pain that needs relievin'.

29. I have some leftover Vicoden from my abdominal surgeries last spring .
I tried one when I had a frozen shoulder (very painful) in December. It did nothing for the pain. I got better results from Ibuprofen and cold packs, plus p.t.

I simply don't understand the desire to take a drug if you don't need it. I needed the Vicoden for a while when I was recovering from surgery but when the pain went away I had no yearning to take one.

14. Yuk!
I've chosen pain over percocets more then a few times.

Whatever that feeling is, it's not high.

16. I truly hope you are kidding.
It is really rough for those who need them as maintenance to get them because so many think they are fun to take. I have a standing script for Vicodin. To abuse that would be stupid.

22. I suffer from chronic pain, and on the rare occasions that I get Percocet
or even Lortab, I cut each pill into 4-6 pieces in order to take a tiny "maintenance" dose every 4 hours or so, because if I took them whole, they'd be gone and the pain would still be there. I get them a couple of times a year, if I'm lucky, because doctors are so paranoid about pain meds these days.

If you're going to abuse pain medication, please don't brag about it here. It's nothing short of a slap in the face to those of us who suffer from unrelieved pain, and can't get medicine because of the abusers out there.

27. Thank you so very much.
I have a wonderful doctor, now. After years of having to submit to all kinds of hell because doctors have become paranoid after prescribing to drug seekers.

30. Uh, wow.
Dumbest idea ever? One of them, that's fer sure. Why on earth would you take extra pain meds if your not in pain? You might need them again someday, and in any case, I can't imagine taking the risk.

31. I have to be an old lady and say the same...
Just make sure your philosophy to "experience everything once" doesn't wind up being your "last" experience. I'm just concerned, or I wouldn't preach.

34. Not to be hostile...Ah, fuck it, I'll be hostile: It's people like YOU who make it worse for
people like ME who depend on opioid medications to get through each hideous day, dealing with our chronic pain.

Every time some asshole like you decides to have "fun" with the drugs that we chronic pain people need every bit as badly as people with diabetes need insulin, you cheapen the struggle that we go through, and make it harder for us to get the medicine we need.

We have enough problems with our doctors getting pressure from the fucking DEA, without people like YOU making it worse.

37. Thank you, though I guess the OP still doesn't get it. I see no apology for his / her
juvenile post, even though I'm not the only one who has called him / her to task for it.

40. Dood. Be careful with that xanax.
I was addicted to that stuff once. No fun. All legal and everything, with a doctor's prescription. My doc didn't tell me it was addictive and I was too stupid to read up on it myself.
