    I know what you mean.
    When I take the oxycodone, literally turns to bullets, steel bullets.

    I have a bottle of oxycodone and a bottle of hydrocodone sitting on my shelf plus a batch of peanut butter marijuana cookies sitting in my fridge and I'm afraid of all of them I don't want to become addicted.

    I've had about hydrocodone the longest and take it during the day only if the pain gets unbearable. I can't take it at night because it tends to wire me and I can't sleep. Plus it never fully takes away all the pain.

    The oxycodone I haven't had very long and its results on the pain are about the same as the hydrocodone. However it's my understanding oxycodone is much more addictive. Plus even though I can take it at night and sleep the next day I am dragging ass and I'm worthless.

    The peanut butter marijuana cookies a friend just dropped by yesterday. The smell reminds me of parties back in my high school days I tried 1/2 cookie so that probably wasn't enough to help with pain. However I did have slight feelings of paranoia as I sat there wondering if I smelled like marijuana and could people detect it. lol

    As for constipation I take metamucil but started having frequent accidents so I cut back on it. It's all so very frustrating!!

    Why are you afraid of getting addicted? It is a serious question, one that I struggled with before I realized that unless there is a cure for SCI I am going to wake up each morning wracked with pain. It is not like when I broke my wrist and got a prescription for vicoden. My wrist healed and my pain went away in a week. This pain will never go away, so why worry about being addicted to pain killers? If they cure SCI, I will taper off methadone and happily not take it anymore. Until then, call me a junkie but it gets me through the day with a reasonable amount of comfort.

    I rarely take it, but when I do the following day after I'm still drowsy in the afternoon and the next day I feel as if I have no affect and could rip the face off someone with my teeth.

    I find this reaction to be concerning as if pain meds are going to make me such a miserable person I can deal with the pain I have so far.

    Is this the pill or am I just a bitch?
    I feel the same way. I'm on endocet and it makes me feel like shit. I get very tired, irritable, and nauseous. And it doesn't seem to do much for my pain either. I much prefer hydrocodone/ibuprofen - I can function a lot better on it and it does the job.

In the past year I have been to emergency rooms at various hospitals in the area to claim pain (cry wolf). After 4 to 6 hours in the emergency room juiced up on Dilaudid I am discharged with a prescription for Percoset (the whole purpose for my episode). Your feedback and support is greatly appreciated.
