I just realized that when I take percocet or vicodin I don't neccessarily get the munchies persay but I almost have a little oral fixation and feel like snacking. Is that just me? Is this a dumbass "everybody knows that" question? My apologies if it is. I'm no pro.

Side question:Just curious, How often/how much do you take if you are on Rx painkillers? I seem to want them more often everyday and now it seems I'm taking them almost around the clock if I have a good supply. I used to only take them in the evening and bedtime to mellow out and wind down/watch tv, but now I like to feel good all day even when working or doing normal stuff. So I'll take up to 10 hydro's a day but it still doesn't do as much as I would like. And when I do my Rx only lasts 3 days or so.

1) Opiates make me want to have something sweet. Like a sweet drink.

2) Welcome to the world of addiction. When I began, was RXed 100 pills for 14 days & reached a point within 6 months, say, where I'd do 100 pills in a day. However, I needed then 13 days * 100 pills or an equivalent. I began then to get early refills etc. Man, it's a mad downward spiral, and it'll happen so quick you won't believe. Good luck with it dude.

It depends on the opiate. Most make me not hungry at all but oxycodone and hydromorphone make me want to eat and eat and eat (gained 60lbs in 3 months because of oxycodone). Ice cream is my favourite!

i do seem to notice it more with oxycodone than anything else. i think it's not hunger but a need to chew or taste - nothing like rolling, which I've only ever done twice, but a milder version of it.

I get sugar cravings when I've used codeine/morphine/pethidine. I know other ppl who say the same thing...
I think it's the skinny peniless junky who makes this phenomenon seem like a fallicy

Codeine does it for me, usually something either sweet or salty.

Jerky is the ultimate opiate food [proper Biltong though].

This is how people become addicted, and I have found that Vicodin is the worst for me. I always want to take more. I have started taking one 15 mg MSIR in the morning and I have yet to want to redose by the end of the day. I'm sure that will change eventually with tolerance and what not, but so far so good. Plus, I don't really notice a buzz from it, so that is probably part of it as well. I never want to go back to that whole cycle again, but still need pain relief, so it's trial and error for now. :)

Opiates make me hungry sometimes, but "Opiate use" doesn't. That sounds weird but it makes sense. Long term use of opiates for like, an entire week or more (rare these days), make me eat less in the long wrong. But at first, initial use of them will definitely allow me to pack more in my stomach than usual.

honestly, doin oxy makes me not want to eat. or if i do eat something while high, it's usually a couple spoonfuls of ice cream or a cookie - crap like that. there have been numerous days where i subsisted on a single starbucks coffee and a muffin or cinnamon bun, which i would usually puke back up anyway. seriously, i have lost like 25 pounds in the last year from doin oxy and not shit else. thanks oxycontin! :\

^^^I was told in rehab once that you get these cravings cause drugs deplete the sugars and stuff in your body..
Thats why we get these cravings.. I get them to, infact I just ate 6 snicker bars a couple of hours ago. Dam those were good=D

Totally killed any hunger I felt
(This was with oxycontin)
First time speed might had something to do with it ;)
To be honest opiates if I can say since its limited to very few oc exp. make me so nauseus I'd throw up immedtialy if I even tried to eat.

about 3 hours into an opiate high i can eat almost non stop and not get full.

i've shocked myself and others with how much i can stuff down when im high.

i only weigh 150 lbs too lol.

I think it might be because you took to much Ocs..
Next time start with 5mg and go up from there..
Its weird but I've never even come close to feeling Ill from Opiates..
I've got a pretty hard stomach though

Tramado on the other hand makes me forget about eating completely some days. I get no buxx from it but I get the antidepressent/appetite suppressent effects which in turn make me some what euphoric in their own way since I"m losing weight! Lol. 15- 20 pounds to go! LOL

I don't get the munchies, but food sure does taste AMAZING when I do eat it high on hydrocodone or syrup!

No, but they do make me kind of thirsty, which is ftw, because taking a piss on heroin is the second greatest feeling in the world.

I do get hungry on opiates , i used to think this was because when i wasnt on opiates i was queezy / sick but now that i use opiates occasionaly i still get hungry

Without question, opioids made me extremely hungry. This was very noticable because I have not historically been a big eater. I don't eat nearly as much now that I am off opioids, although I am a bit better about this as of late.

Opiates can impair your insulin response, which I suppose could result in the craving of sugars.

I remember reading a warning about the use of fentanyl patches in dogs, in which it suggested that dogs should be given limited access to food, as they may eat excessively.

What is it about heroin & pissing? I can stand there for hours & nothing comes out, not a drop, but I gotta go.

I piss just fine. You just gotta forget about it. I suppose if your nodding hard enough, it's not going to be possible.

I eat more than normal when i do H an Oxy. I get mad crisp cravings, lightly salted Doritos and salsa pretty much hit the spot, but ice cream, butteries and jam (Scottish thing) brownies, jam tarts hell any cake like thing will do me. Fruit also tastes extra good, fresh strawberries and melon, the flavour just explodes in my mouth :D

Opiates kill my hunger with a vengance.
Plus food seems to kill my buzz for some reason.

You are the first I have heard that opiates had this effect.

like weed, doing oxy only makes me hungry about 2 hours maybe an hour and a half after peak/insufflation....

I definitely get snacky after pod tea. I'd say it's fairly common.

I was the same way for 4 years until about 3 months ago...now I'm getting MAD cravings for sweets when I'm on them.

It's kind of odd...maybe once you are sick as hell, can't do anything, finally get something in your system and then get something in your stomach.

I know when I'm sick, I hardly drink or eat anything or do anything, for that matter.

Opiates always make me hungry but they especially make me hungry if ive been without them for awile then start taking them again. Even if im not dopesick. They just seem to increase my appetite and i tend to put on weight when im on them as well.

i rarely eat when i'm on opiates... it ruins the buzz for me. i always take them on an empty stomach and don't eat till really late at night when i'm done taking pills for the day and my buzz wears off. they don't make me hungry at all.

I get munchies for things like cereal. Def. sweets. I do the cereal thing because light and not too heavy as to ruin a buzz.

Opiates does not makes me hungry, but opioids like Hydrocodone or Tramadol makes me hungry indeed.

28-09-2008, 00:02
They completely dimish my appetite. I find that I need to force myself to eat because I'll go too long without eating and start to get shaky. Plus, once I eat, I just get really tired and it kind of ruins a good nod. So, generally I don't eat until I'm ready to pass out for the night.

Vic's make me crave for chocolate. If you have a pretty good tolerance and you're addicted you will probably feel kind of shitty until you get your next script and probably eat like crap in the meantime...Once you get that script back and start taking them, you'll feel good and normal again which will make you want to eat like crazyyyyy. Which is good because you prbably need it. I don't know how you are and everyone is different but with the little info you gave this is my opinion.... What are you taking exactly, I mean the mg's of your vicodin. Tolerance is a bitch and addiction is a bitch and it happens before you know it yourself. Scripts are a bitch also because they're gone in a day...lol I know plenty of people to get them off the street....<3 opiates

I deffinetly eat more sweet stuff and at times i dont normally eat, like late at night just as i'm feeling sleepy i usually wander downstairs for a scone and jam or cheese and crackers. I keep a box of oreos next to my bed now :)

This might sound daft, but its all these little connection that make this forum fun like the "omg you do/eatthat to?!" kinda shit? does that make sense?

Yes i'm high.

I eat light and healthy when using opiates. Lots of fruit and salads. Fruit satisfies any desire for sugar but I do tend to lose some weight when I'm using for more than a couple weeks at a time. And folks comment on the weight loss.


Good thing I only chip around a couple months out of the year.

Coming from a X opiate addict, I will tell you this. You can take them and enjoy them, or you can take them becasue you have to just to live. Just to get through work, through the day, through a movie, to talk to a old friend, or anything!!

It will get so out of hand so fast its not funny. Opiates are fun but there there side effects are crummy.

Things to return to me after quitting opiates daily.

Sex drive, Hunger, Energy, Strength, Muscle, Friends, memory, tips. (I work better) oh ya and going to the bathroom like normal..

Things I miss.

Not being so Bord. Pills made hours go by, but its just not worth it. I just feel so much better now its not funny. I still take them for fun but im trying to cut that out too. Stop while you can, most people dont......

well, I do seem to be hungry on opiates. But paradoxically, whenever I'm strung out, I'm always thin. Probably because I'd prefer spending money on drugs than food.

i don't seem to get all that hungry on opiates, but i elect to not eat while on them anyway, for other reasons

For me, they just make me enjoy all the good things in life. like food.

I remember nodding hard one time and going to the fridge for some juice. In my mind I was saying "fuck yea, I love this juice"
