I guess, OP: It would be good idea to try the parachuting method of crushing the pill, then swallowing it... it really is like a feeling of oral swallowing whole/snorting it mixed together, so it may provide just enough relief to get through to your pain, if just taking them oral in the whole pill, isn't cutting it.. Really from what I have seen, sniffing crushed up pills is really more of something that can cause problems, to people who do it a lot, like numerous times everyday, so as long as you are just doing that one pill, its not THAT bad! not just one pill a day, I mean anything is possible, and it isn't quite as safe as say just taking it orally or plugging it... which seriously is worth the awkward, sticking a small syringe up the booty weird feeling! I don't like to put things up my butt at all, I am a straight male and it feels funky, but for the feeling it gives.. it can definitely be rewarding, even if you aren't trying to get high and just need pain relief!!
I am actually in pain myself right now, after a little accident I just had the other day! I mean its like, my upper back, and lower too when I sit or turn my body any way it doesn't like... IT feels like someone is stabbing me, and unfortunately I don't have any idea what I could do to REALLY stop my pain... another reason I wish I never became an opioid addict, for the high! Now I am, and have been on subutex for years, which does next to nothing for pain, and I have tried taking OTC pain meds, since this accident, but nothing happens, and the bupe does absolutely nothing, except for the initial onset when it hits me after I take it, for only maybe the first 20 mins, then no relief at all.. I think I am screwed if I have to resort to seeing a doctor about this, which I will if it doesn't feel better by next week... but right now, I am a but worried, as I am hurting! and I don't think any PM doctor is going to help me if it does end up being something serious, after seeing I have been on bupe, especially for as long as I have.. What happens in my case, if this pain doesn't go away? would they even give me something like methadone? which can serve as both a pain killer/maintenance drug? or would I have to resort to a 'done clinic? Sorry if I am out of line as I kind of went off topic, just curious, as I am in bad pain every time I sit down, or get up, and move in any certain direction while walking, it feels literally like someone is stabbing me, and well this thread does involve pain management..
