I am desperate to figure out why two of the seemingly same medications have such different reactions for me. I am prescribed 3-4 15mgs of OxycodoneIR every 4 hours which works wonders for my pain and I am able to participate with daily life. I know it is never a good idea to try a new medication without consulting your physician but I have been in PM for 4 years now and I feel like a freak telling anyone about this.
My brother gave me one of his Oxycontin (80mg)and I thought it would be a good way to try taking less medication. Boy did it ever work. I took the pill at 11am without taking any of my other pain meds and I felt a slew of effects I have never felt before and I didn't like it at all.
The slew of things being:
-This overwhelming "warm" sensation all over my body.
-This feeling like I was going to die.
-Everything seemed dull. Like sound and sight.
-My personality became that of one who has never associated with another human being ever as stated by my other brother.
-I hardly remember what I did today.
-When that "warm" feeling was wearing off it seemed like I could hear/see better and my personality came back.
-Now that this medicine is finally wearing off I feel so much better but still like I have been hit by a bus.
I took one 80 Oxycontin instead of the 3-4 15mgs every 4 hours of OxycodoneIR today and I regret with all my heart doing so. Why do these two medicines effect me so differently even though they seem to be the same exact thing?
