Hello fellow bluelighters, I'm here to settle the debate over defeating the TimeRX system in Opana ER (stop signs).
First and foremost, in the interest of harm reduction, I have to make it clear that injecting ANY kind of pill is not safe. Using heat, even when necessary increases the amount of binders and fillers that make it through the filter. You should always use a micron filter if available, and make sure all of your equipment is completely sterile. Come on people, you know this stuff already, if you don't, you shouldn't be attempting to IV anything, and you should read no further.
Anyways, I have attempted this once with 70% isopropyl alcohol and just boiled down the solution in a saucepan, and was almost entirely unsuccesful.
I have used the following method 7 times so far, and was extremely successful every time.
I used 91% isopropyl alcohol. Anything weaker than this will not work, as the water content is too high and will cause the solution to gel. I also used 1cc (100 unit), 29 gauge insulin syringes.
(1) I used a hose clamp to grind up 1/3 of a 30mg Opana ER after removing the coating.
Note: If you plan to use the extracted oxymorphone intravenously, please remember that it is as much as 10 times more potent than when taken orally, and about 3-4 times as potent as when insufflated. If this is your first time, be conservative about your dose. You can always do more later.
The contents were put into a metal spoon and mixed with .8ccs of 91% iso. alcohol.
(2)I used a paper clip to stuff .1ccs of cotton into a second syringe, and removed the plunger. Using a third syringe with the needle removed, I drew up the oxymorphone/rubbing alcohol solution and carefully squirted it into the back of the second syringe (the one with the cotton in it). If there is any room left in the syringe, I added more alcohol (however much room was left in the second syringe), to the spoon to get as much of the ground opana into the 2nd syringe.
(3)I thoroughly washed and dried the spoon and turned on a stovetop to low heat. I inserted the plunger into the 2nd syringe and firmly, but carefully pushed the solution through the cotton and needle, and into the clean spoon.
(4)You should have a clear solution in the spoon. Place the spoon on the stovetop on the lowest possible setting (if you don't have a stovetop or hot plate, a lighter may be used but do NOT apply the flame directly to the spoon). Remember, 91% isopropyl alcohol is VERY flammable. If your solution is exposed too much heat or an open flame, it WILL catch fire, and it will destroy the oxymorphone.
Allow the solution to cook until ALL of the alcohol is cooked off. You should be left with a film coating the bottom of the spoon. This will peel off easily during the next step.
(5)Remove the spoon from the heat source. Scrape off the film and cut it into as many small pieces as possible. Add .9 ccs of purified H20 to the spoon and stir vigorously. Stir for 5 minutes, about halfway through you may need to add more water to compensate for the water that will evaporate. Note that the film will not dissolve completely. You should notice a slight color change in the solution though, that will indicate that the oxymorphone has dissolved.
(6)Using a tightly compacted cotton filter, draw up the solution. You may save the film and use it again to get any remaining oxymorphone. A strong, pleasurable, dilaudid-like rush will indicate that you were successful.
Congratulations! As I said, I've used this method several times and have been successful every time. Please be careful! This stuff is stronger IV'ed than you think! So be safe, and enjoy!
