What happens if I cut in half a time release oxycodone???

Rachel L
Probably nothing. Its a time release so your not going to get the full bennifit from it unless they are too strong for you in the first place.

You Distroy The Time Release Feature
and get the full dose now

You're gonna get high and most likely addicted

Gregg L (JPA)
wow these ppl are stupid, i do this everyday with oxycontin, as long as u dont crush it, cutting it in half and talking a half will be a time release of half the dose...i never noticed any difference in the time release matrix with cutting it in half..use a pill cutter

I saw a true life show on mtv where two best friends were drinking some beer and got a time release oxycodone the friends had been doing this medication for awhile to get high but before they always took the whole pill this time they wanted to be careful cause they were drinking beer they split the pill in half to be safe and one friend died and the other one lived this is a true story all the medication was in the one side of the pill and this happened because the protective layler was broken caused to much to release.if you wunna see the video of this with the best friends who took the Oxycontin go to www.mtv.com look for true life and search Oxycontin

It can kill you because when the time release coating is broken you get a very high dosage of the medication all at once which is usually time released over a longer period of time.

The universe will implode. Don't do it man. Don't do it.

Chas B
you will get a far higher dose than you are suppose to. So don't do it. Plus it more than likely will make you sick to your stomach

I take
for a spinal injury so I have a lot of experience with what these drugs do and what side effects usually happen


You will get the full dose all in one shot increasing the risk of an OD due tothe fact TR meds usually have higher doses then those meds that arent TR cuase these meds are ment to last usually 12 hours. Dont do it

Ronald D
The coating provides the mechanism for controlling how the dosage is timed. By cutting your medication in half you break this barrier which will allow too much medication to be absorbed right away. Time release medication MUST be taken in whole.

Here is what the paper packed with it says "TAKING BROKEN, CHEWED, OR CRUSHED OXYCODONE

That would convince me it is a bad idea.
