For the last few months I've taken Hydromorphone on a semi-regular basis in small amounts (4-6mg), and prior to that the only opiate I had experience with was Hydrocodone.
Last week I obtained some Percosets and Oxycontin, and a friend and I each took a Perc (10mg). Even though it was nice, it wasn't as good as I expected. Prior to this I was under the impression that Oxy is the best/most preferred opiate, but I found it lacking compared to the usual Hydromorphone. A few hours later I went home and snorted 4mg of Hydromorphone which was quite nice, and helped from the letdown of Oxy. The next day we took another 10mg Perc and an Oxycontin (20mg) and even though that was an improvement it still isn't the same. From my experiences I deduced that hydromorphone has a strong body high, whereas Oxy has a strong mental high, and assume that this (combined with how used to Hydromorphone I am) is the cause for my let down, and why I currently would choose to take Hydromorphone over Oxycodone. The rush obtained from snorting Hydromorphone, as I usually do, is also part of it, and without trying CWE I have only orally taken the Oxy.
Does anyone have any light to shed on this issue, or relevant discussion/questions?
