    On about two occasions SWIM has tried to snort 15mg of oxycodone, and recieved no high. What was he doing wrong?

    first off, snorting is not the best route of entry for oxycodone, you will get much better effects from swallowing it (especially crushed) the oral bioavailibility is about 20% higher when taken orally. also, if you have been doing this for awhile your tolerance could very well have gone up which would mean you need a higher dose. i know it sucks but it is inevitable. to get the best out of your dose, take 2 tums 30 min. before then drink with a carbonated beverage. it has always worked for me and yields the best results. hope that helps

    SWIM has always blown roxi's as opposed to swallowing. SWIM did not realize swallowing had a larger BA. SWIM has resorted to plugging roxi's as opposed to snorting. Does rectal administration of oxy have a better BA than orally? Or is oral administration of roxi the best ROA other than banging it?

    When SWIM was strictly snorting roxi 30's, he needed at least 90mg at once to even start to achieve a high, so I assume now that if 90mg crushed and swallowed would have been a stronger high than when SWIM snorted 90mg?

    Yep, I found the same thing. Oral is better IMO.

    Maybe you need more than 15mg? How's your tolerance level? Snorting should get you higher than taking them orally, but they should also wear off faster.

    Although swim likes taking them orally better because he doesn't like getting a stuffy nose and he'd rather have his high last longer.
