    Is their a set limit you can take for Oxycontin in 24 hours. Like the 4 grams of APAP in 24 hours. I've read where people take up to 400 mgs a day everyday. Im sure your tolerance has alot to do with it as well. But is their an specific mg you shouldnt go over with Oxycontin?

    My tolerance is pretty high. Been takin opiates for over 4 years. I currently have the 30mg Roxys. Now they use to make 160mg Oxycontins so it has to be safe to take that much you would figure or they wouldnt make them. I know one guy whos doc has him takin 4 80mgs everyday.

    i think a lot really just boils down to tolerance (like you said) and that individual person's body chemistry.

    for instance, the 4 grams of APAP, general rule of thumb that IS correct. for me though, my body can handle a lot more and has caused no damage to my liver or anything whatsoever. I have an intestinal illness so things aren't broken down and absorbed like normal (plus I've had my entire large intestine removed) so things pass quicker. The reason I know all this is because the doctors performed the tests and it has proven that my system doesn't work "normally." i NEVER would have tested the theory on my own, and i still try and not take more than the 4 - but I know if I do, i will be okay.

    so I have no idea how the Oxy plays into that theory of there being a true "limit" bc it seems there are many variables and circumstances unique to each individual that may or may not be toxic to another person - it just depends on your personal physiology.

    if you're getting the results you want from your already current dosage, then i would stay on the regiment. no sense causing harm to yourself just for a high - especially if your pain is legit.

    No not at all. The only opiates SWIM knows of that have dose limits are codeine because it has to be converted to morphine and tramadol because it can cause seizures over 400mg or so. But like dakota said the only thing limiting the dose is the tolerance so someone doesn't OD. If a person theoretically had a huge tolerance they could take 1000mg if they needed to if that's how high their tolerance is. The 160mg OC's were only for very tolerant patients so if SWIY doesn't have a lot of tolerance don't go taking 5 30mg IR Oxy thinking it must be fine because there was a 160mg ER Oxy pill.

    It is entirely dependent on tolerance. You will die from respiratory well before you will die from actual opiate "toxicity" or LD50. Of course their is a limit, but you see people taking grams of heroin a day without issue, yet someone could die from 30mg of heroin without tolerance, simply because they fall asleep an stop breathing. Just as so long as you know your tolerance, opiates generally are very light and less harmful on the body then say, meth or cocaine.

    my friend takes 4 80s and 8 20s a day he lives every day with chronic pain,like most opiates you rise up maybe 10-20mgs at a time so taken over time a person could handle quite an high dosage

    Thats only 15 more mg then you claim to have taken over a day period.

    You must surely do opiates quite a bit to get your tolerance up to 350 mg a day, specially if it was actually OxyContin or OxyNorm or a Roxi not OP formula.

    I do the damn pills every other weekend (Roxis) and get mashed off 2 of em blues, three is going hard.

    I've been takin about 300 mgs Roxy a day for a few days now, before bout 150mgs. I have a few suboxons to take to help me with the WDs. How long should you wait to take the subs? Till your barley having WDs or when your sweating your ass off?

    easily answered: everyone is different. Some people metabolize drugs quicker than others, some have anaturally higher tolerance than others, plus the longer youve been on it the higher dose you can take.. SWIM is close to fifteen, yes FIFTEEN years on this drug and although i pick up oxynorm 42x20mg a week, oxycontin 40mg two times a day and hydromorphone 24mg twice a day..i could If I was stupid and did this, take the WHOLE script in about 26 hours or so.
