Hi, this is my first post I’m new so I apologize if this is not in the right spot.
I’ve been takin extended release oxycontins for the past 9 months. I don’t take them everyday but pretty close to it. I was sober for a month last December and then relapsed in early Feb of this year and have been taking them since. I take 2 a day usually to help me sleep so about 30 mg. But I can safely take 50-60 mgs. I choose to take 30mg a day so I can conserve as they are extremely expensive. So I have a year and a half of experience with opiates. I love them.
Recently I got a few 10mg valiums. I have no experience with benzos. But I’ve read on here a small dose can potentiate opiates. Is it safe for me to mix them since I only have a tolerance with the OxyContin and not the Benzos? If so how much would you recommend taking?

it's not a good idea but i do it. I'd start with 5mg of valium since you have no benzo tolerance

Hey @pill princess :)

Welcome to the forums and fret not, for you are in what I believe to be the right place. So you've had a little dalliance with Opioids and you report back that "all is well, I love them". It's pretty much what we have all said. Opioids, I can only compare to romantic relationships. You meet a girl/guy, you know that they are trouble, but there is some kind of energy between you that makes the risk worth it. Yes, it's usually sexual, but it could be anything. You pursue someone known to be problematic thinking you can "fix" him/her. That's Opioids.

You might end up married, with children, there may be custody battles, separations, divorces etc. but you will more or less become linked to a greater degree as time progresses. I know you like them, but by the way you write, I feel you might be treating this with less caution than your true, rational self would. You seem intelligent and you're not hard to understand, but you seem to suffer from that familiar syndrome of ignorance. Ignorance is such a dirty word in our society, but drugs have been turned into a topic of mass-ignorance by our own institutions, so it's not your fault.

Using powerful Opioids like Oxycodone for sleep problems is probably using too large a gun for your selected prey. Nothing bad has happened yet, but you've definitely "tasted the fruit" and now you have that to deal with. I'm going to stop preaching, because I am now realizing that this is not at all what you were looking for.

Yes, Benzodiazepines and Opioids taken together often produce a state of synergy in regard to potency. By combining Opioids with other depressants like Benzodiazepines you are not only dealing with addition and subtraction but also exponents.

You will likely feel significantly more sedated taking your usual dose of Oxycodone with a dose of Diazepam (Valium). Don't take anything that is not necessary for your condition. If you truly want to maximize the benefit of these medicines, it means you have to treat them responsibly. Like anything in life, you need to plan and invest to make something work and continue to work for you.

It's really not easy and there are a lot of very easy mistakes to make, so you've gotta tread lightly through all of this. Take the lowest dosage possible for the ailment that you're attempting to treat and don't use anything excessively

Hi, thanks for your reply. When I first used oxys back in August of 2020, I was definitely ignorant. I had heard about people getting addicted, and that these were no joke, but I didn’t think it would happen to me. At the time, I had been smoking weed heavily for about ten years and had problems with controlling my use. I was addicted and I knew that. The truth is, the opiates took me in a snap and I wasn’t even aware of it at the time. Not until it was too late. All I knew was I needed to get more of the precious little gems. I mean I still view them as a precious commodity. Like diamonds if you will.
Four months later, after draining my entire savings, I decided to enter rehab. I stayed for about three weeks. I had high hopes to stay clean, but a few weeks after I returned home a bunch of health issues hit me all at once, and I was in genuinely very bad pain. Knowing the doctors wouldn’t give me anything because of my history, I stupidly called my dealer and threw away almost 2 months of sobriety. I went back to that fuzzy, warm blanket of pure bliss that I said I was done with. I was clearly not able to quit them even though my health issues have since cleared up. Luckily though, I haven’t touched weed in over nine months, which I’m proud of, because that’s something I was struggling with for a very long time and felt hopeless with. I just switched one addiction for another.
I made the decision to open Pandora’s box, that day in August, so I’ve kind of had to come to terms with the fact that my life is never going to be the same. I know that I’m most likely going to be in an “ off and on relationship” thing with opiates for as long as I live. I mean, I know people can get off them, as well as worse things like heroin and stuff, i know it’s possible. But I just don’t want to. They’re too perfect to give up.
