I took it but then read it's bad to do and I'm trying to vomit but it won't come up and I'm freaking out. I was prescribed them and have been on them a while but I'm trying to tapir down and just went hell why not cut it in half but now I'm freaked out and I just want to know I'll be ok or if I should just keep trying to vomit it out.. please answer asap.
Get a doctor to give you a prescription to a compounding pharmacy so you can taper at the right & safe rate. It is the best way to quit.
These days the formulation of Oxycontin has been changed to a waxy matrix style pill that cannot be crushed and injected by drug abusers. I would be surprised if cutting it in half would have affected the extended release now (as it is not just a simple coating); a few years ago yes. Ask your doctor or pharmacist what they think.
