> >I was prescribed oxycodone for pain after my hysterectomy and I remember thinking that it was the first time I could remember that my soul didn't hurt (weird description I know). I was hoping this was a result of the surgery, but alas, it was the drug. I am a self diagnosed, nonhyperactive ADD. I was so intrigued with the prospect of feeling good, and knowing that I had a very limited supply of medication on hand, I went about figuring out the lowest dose I could take with reasonable results (no high, just focus, concentration, and only appropriate anxiety). I found that a single 5.325 mg tablet will last me approximately six weeks (if cut into doses the size of a half a grain of rice and taken every four hours). I'm sure people will say this is only a placebo affect, but after five months, I don't agree. Even the tonal quality of my voice changes when I take the medication, and people seem to be more comfortable with my calmer demeanor and voice. I am also able to stay on task (something I could only do for brief periods of time before the medication) and not wear out from mental exhaustion before the end of the day. I have enough pills to last me approximately 2 years . . . I'm hoping that, if enough people answer this blog, maybe this will be considered a treatment option for people who do not have an addictive physiology. For what it's worth, here's my two cents. I'll write back in two years and let you know how it turns out :)

That is very admirable and I am glad that you have found relief and comfort! I have definitely responded positively to opiates......I guess everybody does....???

I just don't have the internal fortitude as yourself to remain at a low dose. That has been my history anyways. I imagine I could and would, adhere to such a regimen if I was directed to do so.

^^^^ How's that for a "copout"?
I doubt that I would respond to such a low dose.....who knows....?? Maybe I would. I just know that I walk a very fine line of not abusing.

You give me something to consider so, thank you.

I hope that you continue to respond positively and you find peace and comfort. Maybe I'll be around in a couple years and hopefully you will keep us updated.

Kind regards
