It is Friday 6 pm and I have a scheduled sub induction for 2:00 pm Monday. It has been a long wait, and during the wait time the only prescription (pain) went from Oxycodone 75mg and OxyContin 45mg.----to--Oxycodone 45mg and m/s contin 90mg.

This alone --the initial higher dose (no ability to supplement) has been the dose for 2 years, long past tolerance it has been taken for a long time mainly just to avoid an awful withdrawal. This situation is worthless and subs seem the best chance out of this.

Recently the Oxycontin was changed to M/S contin 90mg. Which seems weaker and different.

With Friday night, Sat. Sun., to Mon 2 pm seems like a long time. I have been told to taper even more by the Dr. during these days, which feels awful or impossible - especially at night.

I now have 7 oxycontin pills and 7 m/s contin short acting I think. That will be a taper I guess, no matter what I want.
I do know the 24 hours will cause very much w/d and that alone would probably be adequate. But I would hate not to be in enough W/D. I don't want to be in a w/d preventing getting to the clinic.

If all does not go well I do not even have a regular pain doctor anymore to go back to. So it seems quite important that subs work here. Any ideas about how to proceed now appreciated. Thanks.

MS contain isn't really weaker than oxyconton, it just doesn't give the euphoria. The important thing now is to make sure the MS contain is not time release, or long acting. If it is not, you should be ok taking your last dose Sunday afternoon. It sounds like you are being inducted in the docs office, so he should be able to judge if you are sufficiently in withdrawal (you will be). This is a big step and I wish you the best of luck.

I just wanted to throw in my support. I hope your induction goes smoothly. Hang in there - before you know it the weekend will be behind you and suboxone will help you to regain control of your life. Keep us posted.

Scruffy you know I support you completely in this. You are kind of stuck with the current plan whether you like it or not so you will have to force yourself into the car on Monday and make yourself get there.

When I was in withdrawal from oxycontin and got a call that there was oxy available......I was always able to get out of the house to go get it. There were times where I wished house calls were possible, but I could always go get it. You will make it to that appointment.
