Discussions that mention oxycontin

Reach, thank you, that was very helpful to me as I try to taper off Oxy IR. I was wondering how I was going to cut the pills into four doses once I got down to a quarter of a 15-mg pill.....very very tiny! I didn't think crushing was acceptable with Oxy (isn't that what Oxycontin abusers do?) but since it's an immediate-release drug anyway, that makes perfect sense. Another question I had is, did you also stretch out your doses (in terms of hours between) at some point?

I'll update my Taper Tale thread too.
