How  YOU can help
 Currently oxycontin is approved for moderate-severe pain. The sad truth is too many people are faking moderate pain and selling the pills on the street. After all we would NOT have these oxy related death's if the kids were not able to buy oxy on the street. I believe Oxycontin needs to be re-classified to SEVERE PAIN ONLY.  In my opinion this accomplishes two things. It would ensure the Chronic Pain patients who had multiple operations and ailments could still receive the drug that helps them BUT it will also drastically cut down on the street supply.

 *********** WITDRAWAL FROM OXYCONTIN*************
I did a search on OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL on the braintalk addiction topic which there is a link on my help page and at the bottom of my homepage.

Tapering down the doseage is the less painless way to detox but still hard.

Also see my guestbook for some success stories and possible support. Post
an entry with a VALID email address if you want help from people.

One of the posters had this to say about what helped them with the
Other meds to help:
 1. benedryl  to help with sleep - JUST until she is
 2. Immodium AD for diarhhea.
 3. If she can get clonodine from doc - that would help.    (many praise
 4. herbal tea for upset stomach. Ginger ale works better for me.


Suboxone (Subutex, Buprenorphine, Buprenex, "Bupe").

From a patient:

I would urge anyone who is using OxyContin, or who knows anyone who is, to check into getting on Suboxone (Subutex, Buprenorphine, Buprenex, "Bupe"). Users who have used OxyContin and Heroin in enormous amounts both IV (needles) or snorting are able to go straight on Suboxone and not experience any withdrawal. This drug was just approved 9 months ago for the treatment of opiate dependancy. Before this drug- the only other choices were rehab (expensive and impractical), rapid detox (very expensive and does not kill cravings), cold turkey (dangerous and most don't make it through), or methadone (users had to go to clinic everyday to get dosed, does not kill cravings). Now with Suboxone, there is an alternative. Suboxone is inexpensive, ($30-$90 a week for the pills), the user goes through no withdrawal symptoms, and it kills any cravings completely for opiates. It also acts as an antidepressant and an opiate blocker (if the user does use opiates while on Suboxone- he/she will not feel it), and you can control your dose from home without having to go to a clinic everyday. It is also very, very difficult to overdose on Suboxone. The only requirement is that you do not use Oxys or heroin for 12 hours before your first appointment. You need to be in early stages of withdrawal (This has to do with how the medicine works). The doctor will examine you and talk with you, then give you a dose right there in the office. You will be out of withdrawal within 10 minutes. The doctor will prescribe an amount that will keep the user from getting sick. This is a miracle drug for opiate addicted people. You can be able to detox from OxyContin, Heroin, Percocet, Morphine or any other opiate without going to rehab- or having to resort to methadone. You may have people who say your replacing one pill with another, or swapping one addiction for another. This is NOT the case. You are going through a medically supervised detox, a detox that will enable you to keep on working and living as normal. Of course it needs to be used in conjunction with 12 step meetings and counseling, otherwise it is just like putting a Band-Aid on the problem. Drug addiction is a disease, and using drugs is a just a symptom, so you have to deal with the problem. I urge anyone- whether your physically addicted or just dabbling and feel you cannot stop- to find a doctor in your area to prescribe this to you. This link will tell you everything you need to know:
Click on the physician locater tab on the link to find a doctor in your area. It saved my life, and it will save yours. Trust me- you can stop living with this terrible addiction- but not by yourself. You need help, and there is no need for anyone to have to suffer through terrible withdrawal symptoms and depression in order to kick this.
