I will be getting my hands on some Opana in the next 0.2 - 30 days and I want to understand its injectability.
I know injecting pills is a bad idea. I've done a great deal of research. I understand the risks. If you feel the need to admonish me on how I should be treating my body in a better fashion and ensuring the future health of my veins and circulatory system, please feel free, but rest assured in the fact that it will be ignored.
In any case... I understand Opana ER contains some very nasty silicates that nobody in their right mind would inject, whether or not they managed to get them in solution or not. Injecting sand/glass particles... No thanks. So we are talking about Opana (instant release), not Opana ER.
The ingredients for Opana are:
Pregelatinized starch (this is the ingredient that bothers me)
D&C Red No. 30 aluminum lake
Oxymorphone Hcl equiv. to 10mg oxymorphone
Dilaudid 4 and 8mg tabs contain the lactose and magnesium above, and people have been shooting those with no ill effects for years.
In terms of the pregelatinized starch:
"Pregelatinized" indicates to me that the stuff might gel up/become a syrup when added to water and/or heated. Is this the right idea? If so, how best to get around it? Crisp it (e.g. bake in oven at 350/400 on foil for a while before attempting to get it in solution)? Separate it somehow after it is in solution?
Is starch dangerous to inject, at least more so than the other ingredients?
Another problem is that I only have 29 gauge 0.5mL rigs. This is not a long-term problem; I have very many of them and there's an exchange ~40 miles away that will give me any size needle they have in exchange, but I'd like to be able to do this with what I've got on hand.
Another problem is that the only filtering material I've got on hand is cotton.
No worries in terms of tolerance, I'm planning on being very careful the first time to establish my dose, but I was doing 40 bags of heroin per day for about a year, and am currently on Methadone 110mg/day. I am planning to inject 5mg of this my first time, moving up to 10, 15, and 20 in that order in case it's not doing the trick.
Any thoughts/experiences/ideas appreciated.
