I went to Mexico last year on a cruise, needed to get a refill on my hydrocodone 10’s. I gave the doctor my bottle and he wrote me a script for 200 pills. He copied in English directly from the info on my pill bottle. I took it to Costco, SAMs club, and even the major high dollar hospital in puerto vialarto, in every case they said 1. Script must be in Spanish.. 2. None of the pharmacys stock any narcotic pain meds because they are no longer made in Mexico and narcotic Meds are totally illegal! I met this JEWISH guy who lives in a Manson overlooking the sea, (thousands of Americans live there) he was kind enough to give me a ride to his personal doctor… Same story! Even the dentists only give you OTC pills after you have work. So, the only way out was to deal with tourist pharmacies who sell pills one at a time from hidden fake coke cans.. $30 each for hydro 30’s and you have no idea if this is rat poison or what! Mexico has NO pain pills on main st. I guess if you go in an alley and risk a dope rip off (life is worthless in Mexico) you can buy dummy placebos for your monthly pill counts.. To fool the doc that you don’t sell or take too many of your own pills. Vietnam, Hong Kong, Philippines and Cambodia I’m told sell narcotics only to tourists who have passports and valid prescriptions. And the disneyworld of Oxicodone India.
The amount of oxycodone that is safe for you depends on your body’s current exposure to opioids . The amount of oxycodone that is too much for you is relative to how tolerant your body already is to oxycodone, opiates or opioids. Safe dosing levels of oxycodone will also depend upon the type of oxycodone you are taking. Oxycodone in immediate action or controlled release form is available in different doses, and has different actions. Furthermore, as doctors increase doses, they consider a number of different variables, including your age, weight, general health and other medication.. So, how much oxycodone is too much really depends on your specific case.
Hi sweetlemon, I'm not sure if I was in the right demographic, but I was diagnosed at about 35 years old. Big problems didn't begin with it until I was about 48. I'm 53 now and am having a rough time with RA and Fibromyalgia. It might be a weird question, but do you have irritable bowel syndrome and/or Fibro? These conditions sometimes appear together. As far as pain relief goes, I've been taking methadone for about 18 years. It's the only thing that has helped me. I started with percs and vicodan, but those things aren't as long lasting as methadone. I'm certainly not encouraging you to take methadone! It's an absolutely hellish detox. These days there are medications (like Lyrica and Savella) for fibro and RA that work for a lot of people. You have to discuss all of this with your doctor.
