    Hi,

    I have just been prescribed 160MG (2x green OC 80 mg tablets) OxyContin, as a maintenance until I will be moved onto subutex next month.

    I do'nt is'nt %100 satisfied with the power of them taken orally (non-crushed) as they are extended release formulations.

    I have been crushing them to get a quicker absorption of the oxycodone in them.

    They are, however, very hard and require brute force and quite a bit of labour twice daily to crush them up to as fine as possible a powder.

    I have a wooden mortar and pestle, but does'nt want to use it as the wood inside is very rough and porous, and the substance gets stuck on the wood and is hard to remove as it's quite a deep, spherical one.

    I have tried doing in on a flat surface with the mortal but bits go flying in all directions. :(

    I was wondering what would be the ideal procedure to crush up OC 80's to as fine a powder as possible suiteable for mixing with water to get quick absorption and/or nasal insufflation.

    Any tips / recommendations welcome.

    I was at al walgreen and saw this blue pill cutter and it also grinds the pills into a fine powder. Its a blue lil container and only like 6 bux. Takes seconds to grind up a pill.

    just place the pill between a folded piece of paper (put the pill in between the paper), and crush with a strong object, like a hammer or spoon.

    press hard enough and go over it a few times with the spoon, until its all flat.

    Open the folded piece of paper and scrape up with credit card.

    You can take a razor and slice them up into smaller pieces which are easier to crush.

    The problem is more than just getting it crushed. The problem is the binders that are in the pills and powder in capsules. Oxy has Silicon Dioxide in the pill or capsule. Many other prescription drugs do also. We tend to think of prescription drugs as safer than street drugs, but when it comes to snorting that isn't true. Silcon Dioxide is silica. It's like sand or glass. When you crush it it turns into a fine dust of glass like particles. When you snort, some of it gets into your lungs. Because it is like ground glass your lungs can't absorb the silcon-silica. It stays there and can cause Silicosis. If you look up Silicosis or Acute Silicosis you will find it can be deadly. No cure, it does irreversible damage to your lungs. Once it starts it keeps on going until you can't breath and your heart gives out from trying to produce oxygen for your body. It's an ugly way to die.

    You can find out what's in your prescription pills and capsules by doing a Google Search: inactive ingredients Oxycontin, or inactive ingredients, Wellbutrin etc. If it says silicon dioxide it's bad news.

    Another way, is to crush pill and try disolve it in water. The silicon dioxide won't disolve, and you will see the glass like granules that settle to bottom of spoon or soda cap. If it won't disove in water it won't disolve in your lungs. The little grains are sharp and cut up your lungs. Your lungs react by forming nodules around the glass, but the glass keeps on cutting so the nodules get bigger and bigger until they fill your lungs and you can't breath. This is happening to people. You don't hear much about it because people don't want to advertise their behavior.

    People who shoot up filter through cotton and try to leave glass behind, or at least they think they do. Some of fine dust still gets through and settles in a different part of lungs. But it's not as bad as when inhaled.

    This is what swim and everyone she knows does: go to a hardware store or hardware department in any store. Pick up a radiator hose clamp. After You are used to them, You can feel them and tell which ones will work best. But just grab any for now. Flatten it out and give it a good scrub down to get any oil or bits of metal left behind off of it. Dry it off very well. Now run the pill back and forth over the side that is supposed to grip the hose. If You are not sure which side that is, just run swiyour finger over each side and one side will be more rough than the other. Use that side. So run the pill back and forth over it and You will grind up the pill into the fluffiest finest pile of powder You have ever seen. Now this can be used to insullfate, parachute, or mix with juice and drink or IVed (which I wouldnt do OR RECCOMEND!) It may take a little while to grind up the pill swiyour first few times or hurt swiyour finger. But the more You do it, the faster it goes. And You can always switch fingers if it starts to hurt.
    This is the only way I have ever turned oxy into powder and anytime she tells/shows someone else this method, they never use another method.

    Again You is posting unsupported claims about oxycontin. According to all information I has found, oxycontin DOES NOT contain silicon dioxide, and again (relating to your other post) I would like to know where swiyou found this information.

    EDIT: Also by doing a search/research for Silicosis or Acute Silicosis RELATED to oxycontin abuse NOTHING can be found. Please stop spreading this misinformation unless swiyou can back up these claims

    I agree with Realization. Donalddan, please stop posting WRONG information regarding Oxycontin. Especially relating to silicon\silicosis;

    From Purdue's website in the Prescriber's Info .pdf for Oxycontin:
    "Oxycodone is a white, odorless crystalline powder derived from the opium alkaloid, thebaine. Oxycodone hydrochloride dissolves in water (1 g in 6 to 7 mL). It is slightly soluble in alcohol (octanol water partition coefficient 0.7).

    The tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: ammonio methacrylate copolymer, hypromellose, lactose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol 400, povidone, sodium hydroxide, sorbic acid, stearyl alcohol, talc, titanium dioxide, and triacetin."

    Above info on page 2 of .pdf located at: http://www.purduepharma.com/PI/Prescription/Oxycontin.pdf

    There are NO silicon or silicon compounds including silicon dioxide...only colorants formed with titanium dioxide. There are several co-polymers most likely part of the coating which most remove anyhow. Stop spreading mis-information

    Bunn has it pretty close.. easiest SWIM's seen is dampening (almost dripping) a decent quality paper towel and rub it off...others use the grate part of hose clamps, even saw one dude using 120 grit sand paper....if one is going to inject I think hygiene is important and wouldn't use his mouth (probably opt for the wet, relatively clean paper towel method)...but if crushing\snorting etc..then any of the above methods...or invent something new...

    This is what I do.
    He gets a straw a card and a razor. First he licks his finger and wipes the pill and scrapes that coating that is on it. Then he takes the razor and cuts it into 4 smaller pieces and puts them in the straw and chews on them to crush them a little. Then pours them out and puts the card over them and crushes them more and more. then he uses the razor again and keeps cutting them and cutting them into fine powder and then snorts them.

    Another way I do it is,
    wipes the coating off and cuts them into 4 pieces with the razor and places 1 chunk on a 2.5x5 strip of tin foil. He then holds a lighter under the foil to melt the chunk to the foil while sucking the smoke up through a straw. He then tilts the foil a little while holding the lighter under it causing it to slide down the foil which leaves a black line. And the whole time he is lighting it he sucks up the smoke coming off it through a straw.

    Snorting is he says makes it last longer and makes it intense. But when he smokes it he says it makes it more intense but last shorter. I say the best way is to snort some and then right after smoke some so the both hit at the same time causing it to be very intense!

    I find a homemade clay bowl and a bowling pin work great for a homemade one that will crush anything very nicely!

    You should never smoke oxy contin... smoking the binders and fillers can be pretty harsh on his/her lungs.

    As far as the thread topic goes.... the little strip of metal that you see on hoses at any hardware store work the best. It literally makes the pill into baby powder almost... and SWIm swears on it that it makes more powder... which makes me think he has more pill... which placebo is a good thing sometimes :) :thumbsup:
