I've realized I really enjoy oxycontin and so far I've only tried crushing up the XR pill and swallowing. The issue is, for me it takes about 30-40 minutes to start feeling the effect and the high lasts for about 2,5-3h. Peak usually lasts about 2h, which is kinda short. I crush up 20-30mg as a starter dose. I wonder if swallowing a higher dose (like 60-80mg) without crushing them would give me a longer lasting high?

How many mg's would I have to swallow whole to have somewhat similar high and is it wasteful? I'm only thinking about this, because the high is so short lasting for me when crushed up, and redosing 20-30mg's after the first dose only extends the high by about an 1-1,5 hours. I usually end up dosing 40-60mg's crushed up a night anyways. And in common I only use oxies just once a week.

Crushed will give a higher peak (more intense high) but will not last as long.

Extended release will last longer but will be less intense. If you are use to the high from crushed / instant release pills don't expect for the same dosage in extended release form to feel as intense.

Yeah I'm aware of this, but are you able to tell me how much longer is the peak going to be from swallowed XR vs. crushed up? The duration is what I wonder, but I guess I'm going to figure out myself eventually, just considered asking first.

sorry was about to edit my comment to address that.

it depends on the pill. hard to say really. I don't know the specifics about XR vs instant for that particular drug. Concerta (an extended release ADD med) is designed to reach peak plasma levels 8 hours after you take it vs the instant release version which takes about an hour.

if you want a plot that compares crushed to uncrushed plasma levels then check out this link : https://www.google.com/search?q=oxy...ECAEQBA&biw=1920&bih=979#imgrc=txtRhNlnJ18ZpM

Looks like Oxycontin XR hits max plasma levels in 5 hours, and instant release is within an hour - so the highs will be very different.

Hope that is a better answer.

Oh that simple google lmao. Thank you. Yeah I guess I've got the information I asked for now. Honestly I am fine with trading the stronger peak, if I can extend the high by a solid 2-3 hours for example.

this scare the shit outta me
Yeah xr indeed, going to fix it in the post. Do you have any idea how the high differs when swallowed whole? Like am I going to get a high similar from crushing them and how much longer is the high going to last?
i have done some complicated calculation based in your tolerance
take 60mg xr without crashing it should give you the same high but with longer on set action and longer peak and last for 6.6 hours
