the new 224 oxycontin's gel up once you add water, i tried cooking it, since that usually liquifies it right up, but in this case it just made it worse... can anyone tell me how to set up the 224's for IVing without it gelling up? or if there's a way to fix what i already have in gel form?
i would really appreciate anyone with experience trying to IV these 224's to give me any kind of feedback

Im not sure about your question since I don't IV, but I would imagine they gel because they are so much bigger than a normal roxicontin pills, so they must have alot more inactive ingredient fillers in them. Probably an abuse-reducing tactic.
btw:: couldn't you just like, eat the gel?
thats my $.02
I've shoot those many times with no problem.s although there is more sludge left bc how big they are there wasnt really a problem tho no sludge I'd if mybe the company JUST came out sub new anti abuse ones? I dnt think so
The 224's do gel up, however it is still possible. Be sure to crush it up real fine before adding the water. Also do not use heat it will only make it gel
Crush very finely, don't heat ever, and draw up relatively quickly.
This might be off-topic, but are these pills still OK for snorting? How bad is this gel exactly?
This will be the last nail in the coffin, so to speak. I was telling someone just the other day about the new Opana formula that should be hitting shelves soon. "The roxies are IR, though, so they can't touch those!" Yeah, well, I guess they can...
From what I understand, the FDA has shot down the newly proposed tamper resistant Opana..
^Thanks for sharing that article! I think that'll be taken as some good news around these parts.
I particularly enjoyed this quote...
Endo fell 73 cents, or 2 percent, to $35.11 at 4 p.m. New York time in Nasdaq Stock Market composite trading. The shares gained 70 percent in the past 12 months.
^For sure. Good news indeed. And haha yes, that bit about the stock falling gave me a nice early morning laugh as well.
How I IV my Roxi's:
The 15mgs & 30mg roxis (which is what you have) gel up a little bit in water but they are still very much IVable. Crush the pills on a piece of paper (dont do more than 2-3 at a time, and add in 30-40 units for each pill, expect an output of 15-25u for each pill at this rate because the gel in the filler holds in the water.
Funnel into a chapstick cap and put in HOT (but not much hotter than what you can touch) water. Stir with the cap of the needle, and/or shake vigorously with your thumb over the cap. Drop cotton in, (or micron filter) and filter as normal from the cap. Once most of the moisture has been accumulated, rub the cotton around in the gel, getting as much excess liquid from the left over residue as possible on the cotton and then draw it.
if there is still alot of residue on the sides you can take another rig and add more water into the cap and stir in the residue with the water.
lemme know if this helps.
If your pill has an 'OP' on it instead of OC and its one of Purdue's new OP oxycontins then you shouldnt have even gotten as far as you have in your OP.
The 15s are harder to IV than the 30s but they both work.

Wait, is your pill blue or white?
^You really need to be micron filtering if you're shooting any pills that gel up at all. Imagine all the insolubles accumulating in your veins, lungs and elsewhere.
^thank you for adding that, I missed that part. I was cringing reading that explanation on how to shoot up pills that gel... it seems to focus on expediency over harm reduction.
Well, i have done it plenty of times and never had any problems. just wash ur hands first and, btw i, like most others, cant afford those micron filters.
and they dont necessarily 'gel' like the un-abusable pills that are out there now, but the filler does tend to leave some residue behind.
the roxi's are IVable with cottons... i have used this method over 200 times and never had any problems at all. as long as proper techinique is used, in my opinion, you should be fine.
As a former IV dope user myself, I am fully aware of having to make due with what you've got, and sometimes dope sickness overrides the aspect of harm reduction when all you wanna do is get that spike in your arm ASAP. As for micron filters, they aren't insanely expensive, and if you are going to be regularly IVing pills they are pretty much imperative, in my eyes.
Yes, I am aware that you CAN iv roxies with cotton, and have done it myself. Sure, you could do it and get away with it but over time all of the impurities and fillers like talc and shit can build up in your veins, lungs, etc..
All I am trying to do in my posts is advocate harm reduction as much as possible, from an objective point of view. Not necessarily exactly what I have personally done, and gotten away with. ya dig?
You find a way to obtain clothes (presumably), some form of at least essential nutrition, hydration, drugs, needles, and likely other commodities. You are CHOOSING not to buy filters and instead spend your money elsewhere. You are not cosmically barred from spending your money on micron filters.
If you want to assume unnecessary risks, feel free but please do not encourage others to do so... at least not on a harm reduction message board.
In my view, proper technique includes not reusing/sharing needles, micron filtration and sterilizing the site. Just calling something 'proper' doesn't mean its safe or optimal.
Lastly, by your logic I will never get lung cancer because I've smoked thousands of cigarettes in my life and never experienced any problems thus far as a result. Do you not see the glaring flaw in your logic here?
Even if I smoked for 60 years and was still living, does that somehow negate the fact that something like 1 in 3 life-long smokers die as a direct result of their smoking?
I apologize if I came off harsh at all above, but attitudes like your undeniably lead to people rationalizing dangerous behaviors.
Yeah man, this is about Harm Reduction, not what you've done and gotten away with.
Maybe I've stuck my dick in a diseased prostitute (I haven't) and gotten away without a medical problem as far as I can tell, that doesn't mean I would ever advocate it.
not to derail... but are you guys sure the Opana IR's haven't gone generic? I picked up a new script after a couple months off because I was trying bupe as my main PM agent, but these seem different than before somehow. Maybe Endo changed them....?
well... i am sure that the OP was using a cotton and spoon to IV these in the first place. Im also sure the OP knows the risks associated with his/her behaviors. I was merely suggesting using a cap instead of a spoon to mix the pill in.
I am not telling the OP to do anything with a diseased prostitute. Talk about overreacting... I wasn't insisting that there was no danger in my method, just minimal. Not anymore than what the OP was doing anyways.
And, on a side note, the only micron filters I was able to find available for purchase online were 2.99 each. That's too expensive for me. Do any of you guys know where to purchase them at a reasonable price? I am not disagreeing with you guys that it is safer to use micron filters, but if the OP, or anyone else lurking this thread cannot readily access them, i was sharing the technique that I use and my results from them. Any IV'er should know that there is ample risk in the technique I posted and the techniques they were using prior.
And really. I am not telling the OP to use spit from a diseased prostitute. You are most likely going to catch whatever said "disease" is. and mulvolution you dont need to post a summary of the post before yours. I get the point and I also wasnt saying that my logic could be used in 'x' situation. i was just stating there wasnt anymore risk then using cotton/spoon anyways.
No need to flame me, or get your panties in a wad. Most people won't/don't have access to micron filters anyways....
Not that this matters much, but talc is only in oxycontins, not roxicodone.
Don't believe me?
The 15 and 30 mg tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose; sodium starch glycolate; corn starch; lactose; stearic acid; D&C Yellow No. 10 (15 mg tablet); and FD&C Blue No. 2 (15 mg and 30 mg tablets).
Alot of those ingredients are insoluble in water anyways. And while, yes, prolonged usage with cottons does have some dangers, using my method once or a few times is virtually harmless and nothing to "cringe" about.

What we're trying to clear up here is that you essentially said micron filters are a luxury and if you use cottons properly it's fine--and that is factually incorrect.
You don't know how much damage your internal organs have sustained from not filtering out harmful binders and you don't know just how much talc has collected in your lungs. All you know is that you happen to not have died from it yet. I would hope you would agree that that is not a strong basis to say an unsafe practice is 'fine.'

AKA just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. dokomo succinctly demonstrated why you shouldn't.
Lastly, don't you DARE tell me what to do with my panties. I'm a grown man. Its MY decision.
