I've been on several opiate based prescribed meds for chronic pain for several years. I have an appointment this Monday and I think I will be put on something stronger mabey morphine but anyway I have vicodins left from previous visits that I cannot take anymore because the amount I need to stop my pain is just toxic, last nite I was basically overdosed, cold purple skin barely able to stay awake ect... Bad stuff... So I know how to get the bad stuff out of the vicodin, not going into detail, and I can just drink it. I feel bad doing this but I can only imagine the amount of damage my liver has already been through and don't want to have to put on a damn liver transplant list! My previous Dr was obviously not informing me about consistent use causing harm and now am finally hopeful my new Dr will help me but until Monday I'm in constant pain unless I do this. What would you do? Would you "fix" your meds?Answer Question

You need to go seek out specialist that can help you find other ways of dealing with your pain - pain pumps, nerve blocks, antidepressants, neurotin, etc... If you don't find other ways of managing the pain other than opiates, you are going to reach a point that there be nothing else they can offer you. Its time to find a dr who will think outside the box to find other ways to managing your pain and slow your ascension up the opiate latter.
