Yes, I have taken sustained release fentanyl and a few others except OxyContin because it is literally not available in my state. The biggest issue I had was horrific constipation because the opiates never wore off so to speak. You are totally right about the no high. The biggest reason at this time for preferring Kratom is I do not have to spend 2 weeks each month in withdrawal because no local pharmacy can fill the prescription because the DEA fucked up delivery again.
My husband takes a legally prescribed stimulant. For the past 2 months he has had to endure 1 week to 10 days of withdrawal because he was unable to fill the prescription. Luckily he gets prescribed 2 pills daily so this time once it was filled I convinced him to just go 10 days with a half dose. That way he will not be totally out next time. He still feels crappy but at least he can function. These DEA morons think they are doing good and fail to realize that what they are really doing is screwing legitimate patients. Perhaps it is different in other states and other countries but I am done playing the game with big pharm and the DEA. Kratom works and it is legal where I live. The whole thing pisses me off.
Sparkles, I got what you meant!! It made complete sense. Unfortunately I live in an area where there is a government witch hunt on narcotic use. The unfortunate thing is while greatly reducing the illegal pill trade they also stripped legitimate patients of their meds plus inadvertently just pushed people to heroin use. Heroin is easy to get and cheaper than pills. We are seeing a lot of endocarditis which is costing taxpayers a ton of money as none of these people have insurance and require open heart surgery. The hospital eats the cost but you can bet they share their loss by passing on the bill to those who have insurance by raising costs. We have solved nothing. Addicts just changed drugs. They would be much better off chewing pills.
Anyhow, thanks as always for your love !!!
