This is a detailed overview of my experiences with the amazing chemical Oxycodone.
Age: 19 / Weight: 240 lbs.
Prior drug experience: Marijuana, PCP, Methamphetamine, MDMA, DXM, LSD, 2-CB, Cocaine, Alcohol, Psilocybin Mushrooms, MCPP, Hydrocodone, Alprazolam, Hydromorphone, Diazepam, Dextroamphetamine, Methylphenidate and various inhalants.
My first introduction into the opioid class of drugs was when I was 15 years old. I’d had a sebaceous cyst on my back and went to the doctor to have it removed. After the surgery was over he gave me a prescription for twenty 5/500 APAP Vicodin pills for the pain and I took three immediately after it was filled. I don’t quite remember feeling any sort of nod or extreme buzz like I was constantly told opiates would give me, and was disappointed by the slightly stimulating and extremely itchy intoxication the Vicodin produced. A week later when the bottle was gone I told myself opiates sucked and didn’t think about or see them for a solid two years. Little did I know at that time they would soon become my favorite and most sought after class of drug. Not just any opioid I might add, but only OXYCODONE.
When I was 17 I began hooking my father up with a new pill connect I’d met at High School. My father always liked pain killers and I saw no problem with getting them for him as he was constantly in pain from a separated shoulder he suffered back in the 80s. The pills were 80mg Oxycontin tablets: green and small with OC on one side and 80 on the other and ran $40 a piece through my connect. I always saw the joy and relaxation they brought my father after he took some and one day I asked for a piece.
He cut me off one quarter of the 80 which I’d consider roughly 20mg and I swallowed it with some water. About a half hour to 45 minutes later I began to feel something. It was faintly similar to a light come up on good quality MDMA as I began feeling tingly, cracked a smile, and colors in my vision became more vibrant. I had a light ringing in my ears and my mood improved 100 fold. I began to feel a pleasant warm sensation sweep around me as if I’d just stepped into a perfectly heated bath though I’d been fairly cold just 10 minutes before. Suddenly I just wanted to talk, talk, talk similar to the need to talk that takes ahold of me when rolling on E. Talking felt amazing and unlike Ecstasy I had complete control over my conversation, meaning I wasn’t forgetting my point halfway through sentences nor did my mind wander. These effects grew stronger for the following hour or 2 and peaked for a solid 3 to 4 hours afterward.
Approximately 4 hours after I’d taken the 20mg I laid down to sleep. This is when I first noticed one of my favorite effects this chemical produces: after lying down for about 5 minutes in complete relaxation I began to drift into a state best described as half sleeping and half awake. I began to dream and play out scenarios in my head that I could watch fully in front of my eyes like a movie, all the while hearing faint sounds similar to a distant conversation and sometimes soft music which slowly lulled me to sleep. This effect, which I believe to be the infamous opiate “nod”, is the effect that kept me coming back to try oxycodone again and again.
Taking 20mg of oxycontin and enjoying myself became a regular weekend practice for me after this first experience until oxycontin was recalled. Purdue pulled their regular OC formulation and replaced it with the OP formulation in the middle of 2010. These new OP pills were made with a strange type of gel to make the pills tamper proof and were much weaker and shorter lasting when taken orally. In light of this I stopped with oxycontin and switched over to another oxycodone formulation which is now my preference: Percocet.
I have been taken percocet 1-2 times weekly for the past 6 months and have yet to suffer serious addiction or withdrawal symptoms. Because of this, I believe I will continue to moderately indulge myself with this pill and enjoy the warm, itchy, and mood lifting buzz it provides. I prefer percocet to the extended release oxycontin formulation because it hits quicker, harder, and lasts a solid 4 hours per pill. For some reason I also believe that the addition of acetominophen to the oxycodone in percocet adds to the strength of the narcotic opiate effects.
In conclusion Oxycodone is an amazing chemical and in my opinion the best opiate out as far as narcotic effects go. It provides a huge mood lift, reduces pain, and has a good amount of desirable effects: feelings of warmth, empathy, and euphoria. The only negative effects I’ve personally experienced with this chemical are extreme itching, dry mouth and nose, difficulty urinating at times, hiccups, extremely pinpointed pupils, and mild tiredness and heavy feeling the morning after dosing. Besides these effects and the obvious ill effects of addiction and abuse, I find oxycodone to be an extremely enjoyable, pleasant, and strong opiate with amazing effects that no other drug can produce.
