Try either methadone or buprenorphine. You will not be able to process any of those too fast and they might work for you.
Mpoir-I also metabolize all medications quickly. This was discovered because I would express to my pain mgmt specialist that I thought the drugs were made poorly. It is true, as per my Doc, that different manufacturers make better pain drugs than others, but I did the "spit test" which was sent to a lab to find out how quickly my liver metabolized my pain meds. It came back that I metabolize drugs very quickly and thus need more meds than a person who metabolizes differently. Ask your doc about the "spit test". I don't know the proper name for the test but I am sure the info can be found on this site or by googling or asking your Doc. Good luck.
