Re: methadone and oxycontin at the same time

Should you gat aditonal pain relief from using 2 long acting drugs, Yes, Will you get the stimulating efects or euphoric feeling fromoxy while on meth, not likely. Iy doesn't make sense t use 2 log acting drugs when meth has a 30+life. You start takng it monday and you don't know how the dose is going to efects you for 5 days as it continues and cntinues to build in your system. I've used short acting oxy as a Bt med with meth and got extra pain relief. But it doesn't do a thing for the drowsiness meth causes. I Cant imagine a reputable doc prescribing both at the same time other than switching from meth to oxyC. Where you can do a direct switch to meth and experience no syptoms of withdrawal even at a dose that still doesn't give the same pain relief.

Switching away from meth is tough but if someone found a pain doc that had been using a meth clinic, Stop the clinic cold turkey. You can never justify to any doc that what your doing is apropriate even if someone is tapering the meth dose off at the clinic. If someone asociates a feeling other than pain relief with pain meds, They should tread carefully, Their is a huge distinction between feeling good from taking pain meds and simply feeling better because of the relief.

Goodluck, Dave
