I feel sorry for your friends family, that drug is bad. I was addicted to it, and got sent to rehab over it. I will be honest and say this, if I still had some oxy around me, I'd be back on it. Two weeks ago yesterday I done a 40mg pill of it, and I'm still suffering from withdrawl due to it. It's a dangerous drug. Usually it's only given to cancer patients, and people who are dying or near death.
Do you know how your friend used it? See they have a coating on them that is time release and it's meant to be taken orally, however a lot of people that abuse it just scratch the coating off to either pop it, crush and short it, or shoot it. I've always crushed and snorted it, althou I've shot up with it a few times as well. I can tell you that the first times you use it you will get sick and throw up. It's like a form of legal heroin. In fact it contains many of the same chemical properties as heroin. Usually to get off of it they give you methadone. Locally the rise of Oxy has died out, but there is a rise in methadone due to it. I know someone that died a few weeks ago from over dosing on methadose patches. I've done this stuff before, but I've never ODed. I'm still battling with trying to quit. My girlfriend is in rehab right now due to the oxys we done 2 weeks ago. She battles with it more than I do. If there is anything you need to know, don't hesitate to ask me.
The pills usually come in 40 and 80 mg althou I've heard there are 120's out there. Locally the last time I bought a 40, which was 2 weeks ago, I paid $65 for one pill! It's expensive and it destroys a lot of lives. Unfortunately those of us that don't need it are getting our hands on it, and the drug company to begin with just marketed it as a new pain killer, not as the pain killer for cancer patients which it actually is.
I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
