    Frenchie, I have no practical advice. I have never been in your situation or known anyone who has been. I really do hope that you come through this all relatively unscathed. xx Good luck.
    Agree

    He's had endone before but was quickly upped to the oxynorm 10s. You talk to most gps about 5mg quick release oxycodone and they will say endone so I guess it's just more common. Could have sworn thay I was reading something a few years back and the norms started at 10mg though.

    How many endone do you usually take at a time Ffrenchie? If your gp knows you're take more than one it would make sense to give you the higher dose and that will save you money. Unfortunately there are no generic versions of the oxycodone range but maybe you could compare the prices at the chemists around town to see if you can get it cheaper?

    The information given about there being a cheaper option was incorrect and I was just trying to clear it up. I'm sorry Ffrenchie. It was insensitive of me. I was just trying to help.

    I do hope they do something to help you, mental health care in this country is pretty crap and very underfinanced.

    Thanks everyone.

    Yeah the gp knows I was taking too much but reduced my original prescription rather than increasing it when she took it out of my hands. Which makes no sense because even though I can't control addictive meds very well, I think I still have a right to pain relief. At one stage I was taking a whole packet of endone over a couple of hours plus Oxys as well. 20+20+10 makes no sense. It would be better off taking nothing but then is have the pain plus the mental and emotional stuff plus worse withdrawls to deal with.

    Ok they are keeping me overnight at this small hospital and starting me on an anti psychotic, I am petrified of weight gain now omg. I don't know whether to take it. He is increasing the oxy to 30. Better than nothing I guess. Home tomorrow.
