Oxycodone is not a form of heroin, and neither is methadone. Methadone is used to give heroin addicts the same feeling as heroin, and the feeling goes away after the first use. Oxycodone is a pain reliever that is one molecule away from being heroin. At least he's not doing Heroin. I've done Oxycodone, and methadone. it's not bad, as in it's not that addicting or fun. If you pm me ill gladly explain to you what to do, and to help.
I went to highschool with kids like your son. it is pretty sad you had to find out via computer, and I mean sad for him. It's not just pot you know? if you don't know when your son in high on something they give to cancer patients, he must be slipping fast. Put the kid in rehab, it's his only chance.
your a fuckin tool, a 25 year old reborn again Christian running his mouth calling a stranger a bad parent from a snippet of info, you don't know the story, besides what are you saying every drug user's parents are responsible for their habits? not everyone can be brain washed as easily as a re born again Christian
Just because a parent doesn't recognize that their child is on an opiate, doesn't mean that they are a bad parent, or that they aren't paying attention to their child. There are many ways to hide this addiction, and if your child is a teenager, many parents will attribute sudden changes in behavior to hormones. Sometimes it's not even evident that a person is using until it is too late and they have overdosed. It is very fortunate that you have discovered that there is a potential your son is using, Rehab. Don't alienate him, scold him, or in any way lose his trust. The best thing you can do is express your concern and care for him. I have addicts to opiates in my own family, and they continue using for two reasons... 1) they believe that nobody knows they are doing it, that they are succeeding at hiding it, and 2) because when people did initiate conversation about the subject, they were accusatory and abusive in how they approached it. Please talk to your son about it, overdosing is very common with these things, and if left unchecked, the problem will just escalate. If you don't think that you'll be able to speak to him without losing his trust, I suggest seeing a therapist about the issue, who may be able to give you advice on how to approach the situation. Best of luck, I hope your son doesn't fall as deeply into this as people I know and love have.
wow. someone needs to talk to their son more often. but what is oxytocin, anyway?
actually oxycontin is still manufactured it's just very difficult to come by. oxycodone is similar but not the same it's way less powerful. and it's a very powerful painkiller usually prescribed to people with cancer, or possibly spinal surgerys but they might just give em morphine. I've had experience with this shit although I've never taken oxycontin I' have takn oxycodone but was able to quit it easily. wouldn't have been the case with oxycontin. I'm happy to say that I am clean now though :)
lmao "oxycotton" is incorrect, that's how lil wyte spells it in that stupid "Oxycotton" song. my boyfriend was addicted to oxycotin, roxycodone and heroin last year. oxy's are VERY addictive, anyone who is saying that they aren't obviously hasn't been to a methodone clinic or known people who abuse it. it is still manufactured too, I know a woman who sells her Oxycontin 80's for $45 a piece. it is very bad to inject because it has talc in it, which just floats around in the bloodstream until it attaches to your lungs and collects there. and to the guy who said a kid he knew OD'd on oxy's and "trashed the principals office and spat on a cop" - oxy's make you feel lazy, good and sleepy so its weird that he got so aggressive on them. one of the sure ways to tell if someone is doing oxy's is if they fall asleep randomly and have tiny pupils. track marks will prove someone is injecting it.
dude oxy's fuck you up... I took them for 3 weeks strait I think they were 20's? I dunno butt I was so itchy and I thought I was bleeding from my ears. lol I went through a rough time with drugs for a few years... it sucks. and oxy's are so easy to find up here... well in my old town... it's the drug capital of Canada. it's a shitty place!
Oxycontin (oxycodone) is a drug/medicine that is used to relieve pain by changing the ways that the brain and nervous system respond to pain. Kind of like a very strong pain killer. I honestly think OP should find out why their son is looking this up. He either is facing a lot of pain at the moment, or knows someone who is.
Oxycodone is an opioid analgesic medication synthesized from opium-derived thebaine. The slang term hillbilly heroin for OxyContin refers to the occurrence of the "earliest reported cases of Oxycontin abuse" in the U.S. in rural areas.
