what would this make you feel like if it were your first time taking it? would you be able to drive etc?
Depends how you do it. If you sniff it, it kicked in almost instantly for me when I first tried it, yet my friend on his first time he sniffed it as well and it took him about a half hour to notice the effects. If you swallow it I would say around 30 mins to an hour. I drove all the time on them, yet I was also really stupid aswell. I really wouldnt suggest driving on them at all, esp if its the first time you are trying them. You might start nodding (feeling a euphoria that makes you feel like you are going to fall asleep.) This ******************** is extremely addicting though. Its always hard to say no when you havent tried it yet. People always tend to think that they won't get addicted to oxy, cause they think they will be able to control it. LOL it doesnt work that way. Its like a prescribed >>>>>> dose. Soon you will have to do more and more till you are broke and stealing money to buy some. Yeah getting prescribed them seems like its ok to do them, but doctors dont take oxys and dont understand addiction, they have read about addiction yeah, but understanding it is something only addicts know. Hope you dont take them buddie. You are gonna do what you want to though. I remember thinking I was strong enough not to get addicted, then I became a strung out loser. Now having to go to a methadone clinic daily to help recover from being an idiot and being too scared to quit cold turkey cause of withdrawl effects. If you like to have diahrea for 10 days and feel like your freezing on 100 degree days, not be able to eat or drink (anything), dont like sleep, and not mind sleeping your own ********************, go ahead and do the oxys, but dont say I didnt warn you. LOL.
do me a favor, read just 10 post.....then tell me if you still want to use....are ya nuts or what hun???
Have you been prescribed this medication by a doctor or are you going to use it recreationally? I would really strongly advise you to AVOID the recreational use of narcotic pain relievers.

OC is just like the above poster put it, "a prescribed >>>>>> dose". No pain is worth what this stuff can do to you. I cannot believe that it is legal!
********************, OC's aren't nothing compared to methadone.
I do recommend against taking recreationally, but if prescribed - be careful, follow directions, and get ready for euphoria!
After taking it for a long time, w/d's are pretty severe but only last a couple of weeks at most. Methadone can leave you reeling for months even years! Take oxy or hydrocodone's, or morphine, anything! before methadone!
Peace, and wellbeing
When I tried Oxy it did nothing but keep me awake and make me itch really bad. Not a Drug of Choice for me. If you do feel any great high just remember you are sucking the life from your brain and you will pay the price physically and emotionally. You are messing with your brain's balance. Maybe reading some posts will help you stay away. Who knows. I hope so. But if you do try it, don't drive around...you never know how someone will react to any drug.
Doesn't anybody on these forums use these drugs as prescribed, besides myself???!!! Considering the other answers, I wonder about this.

To a large degree, how Opioid drugs such as Oxycontin affect a person depends on WHY you take them -- is it by prescription, for pain control, or is it just for grins? Recreational users (also known as drug abusers) probably should NOT attempt to drive or operate machinery after taking Oxycontin 20mg, especially if they have crushed or snorted the pill or whatever, which turns this controlled release medication into an immediate-release drug. Oxycodone, the opioid ingredient, is pretty potent at 20mg. Anybody who is not accustomed to daily opioid use will probably be wobbling around like a drunk and should not get behind the wheel of a car.
But those who take the drug by prescription, for its intended purpose (pain control), MIGHT be able to drive and do just about anything else they can physically tolerate because they will probably NOT get "high" unless the 20mg dose is too strong for them; in that case, they might instead ask their doctor (on the next visit) for the 10mg Oxycontin pills or perhaps a different drug.
Unless you have cancer pain or chronic pain that has caused you to NEED prescription pain pills for a certain amount of time, it's unlikely that you'll be prescribed Oxycontin 20mg or any higher dose. The prescribing guidelines say Oxycontin is for people who have already been taking opioids for a period of time. Most people prescribed this drug have severe pain for which the drug is intended, and those with chronic pain often have a history of taking other opioid pain pills 3 to 4 times daily, sometimes for years.
If taken for ongoing, moderate to severe pain, exactly as prescribed, pain pills do NOT normally make you high unless, perhaps, the dose is more than your pain requires. In other words, those accustomed to daily pain pill use may find 20mg Oxycontin no more intoxicating than aspirin. Those not accustomed to prescription pain pills may get zonkered by it, even if they don't crush or break apart the pill and it releases the drug very slowly over a 12 hour period, as intended.
"Getting high" is NOT the goal of most people who take pain pills by prescription, such as myself -- we just want to be able to function and not have our lives ruled -- and ruined -- by constant pain. Those who abuse these drugs have made it very difficult to obtain them. Abusers also cause everybody to think that we, too, get "high" when taking pain pills, and that we are nothing but drug addicts. That's totally untrue -- for instance, only a tiny percentage of those who follow dosage directions when taking opioids for chronic pain will ever become addicted (studies have shown that it's very few -- less than 1 percent to as many as 3 percent -- who get addicted). However, most will develop a tolerance that eventually requires dosage increases. If we suddenly stop taking pain pills, the biggest problem can be greatly increased pain that the pills normally would keep in check.
People who regularly take more pills than prescribed, causing them to run out of pills long before refill time, are at an increased risk for addiction, but many such people fall into the category of "drug abusers," and drug abusers are always at risk of addiction.
I take these drugs because I need them. I have severe spine problems from C2 to tailbone. Almost none of my discs are "normal" -- they are all bulging, herniated, or missing altogether. I have bone spurs, discs, and two "dislocated" vertebrae (called spondylolisthesis) that compress about 20 to 24 spinal nerve roots and also compress my spinal cord in 3 or 4 places. This causes pain and problems not just in my spine, but in both arms and both legs. I've had two multilevel spinal fusion surgeries and need more surgery, if I ever find a doctor able and willing to tackle the complex procedure I need, without paralyzing me. It's a wonder that I can walk -- I consider every step I take to be a miracle.
But I can walk only when I take pain pills, which the drug abusers have made increasingly hard to obtain. Please find some other drug to abuse, people, so that I can stay out of a wheelchair.
