    Swim has been prescribed 60 of the 20mg oxycontins a month in addition to his regular dose of 10mg Percs 4 times daily. Since the oxycontins are time release swim wants to know how many mg of oxycodone are in the 20mg oxycontins because when Swim takes the contin it feels like 20 mg of Perc but lasts all day. If Swim crusnes the 20 how much oxycodone will he get the benefit of? He wants a good dose, 20 is nice, but doesn't want to OD. Swim has searched this forum and elsewhere but without success.

    Well either way swim would assume u can only get 20mg from a 20mg pill...
    but if u crush it,u will break the time release and all 20mg will hit u a hole lot quicker!!! If u get a buzz from swallowing a 20mg oc then u might want to do half at first...you dident mention u would be snorting it after crushing but if u were to snort I would start with 10mg but then again...20mg might be even better...
    Swim would defently snort it,instead of just eating the crushed oc.....

    If SWIY was taking 4 percs a day, assuming they're the 5/325s, that's 20 mgs of oxycodone. So, if SWIY already has a tolerance for 20 mg a day, a 20 mg OxyContin shouldn't be a problem, even if SWIY snorts. But SWIM wouldn't recommend snorting the OC, since there are so many binders and crap in those pills. SWIM would suggest going with an immediate release oxy if SWIY really wants to snort. OCs work much better if swallowed any how. How about parachuting for that rush of 20 mg all at once? Just speaking from experience, as SWIM used to rail OCs and found her sinuses and nose clogged a lot worse than if she stuck with just the Oxy IRs. Hope this helps! Best of luck, no matter what SWIY chooses to do. :thumbsup:

    A 20 milligram pills contains 20 milligrams. Monkey has noticed that the "quality" of the oxy in oxycontin sometimes fails too meet the quality of the same amount in percocet (example, a 40 mg oral dose of percocet will feel nice, chewing up an oc 40 will not be noticeable). He has no idea how or why this is. It could be subjective, or a route of administration thing, who knows?

    Just want to say that...although swim isent to impressed with oc at all...not sure why they just arnt all that...not in swims opinion anyways...
    But as for the chewing/swallowing the oc after crushing ect...
    Swim has done this alot before and swim isent sure why, but he rarely if ever got off, even a little by swallowing oc....
    But snorting them always slammed swim into next week!!!
    Also...swim iv'd oc before a couple times and it wasent great at all....regualr oxycodone beat it hands down in terms of shooting ect...funny and weird but swim got off better snorting oc then from any other way...so although swim is very fawned of the needle...he would always snort oc..always from now on anyways...
