This is my unforgettable experience with oxycodone (Oxycontin), carisoprodol (aka Soma), and doxylamine (aka Unisom). At that time, I had no prescribed medications. It was just one good multivitamin and exercise.
It was yet another early Friday morning in my life as a college undergrad. Life was going well. I had an amazing girlfriend, and all in all, I was in a great mood. Friday mornings were my mellow out time because I would normally have the apartment to myself for 8-12 hours.
My experience with pharmaceuticals was considerably limited and spotty over the previous few years. I had first tried Carisoprodol the year before but due to sporadic availability, I would have rated my tolerance as Ďmedium-highí meaning 2000mg would floor me more times than not, while less than 1250 would do very little.
I had started out with limited codeine use several years back, stopped for a while, two years later went on a few weekend hydrocodone binges, stopped for about 6 months, and then met an oxycodone and morphine connect. However, at the time of this experience, roughly 3 months after the beginning of my once-a-week oxy use, I often dosed about 80-90mg at a time (or 160-180mg if I only had morphine available). I would place my oxy tolerance at Ďmediumí
I would place my oxy tolerance at Ďmediumí
, meaning 90mg alone would be very euphoric, but 60mg was still pleasantly warm and fuzzy.
I kissed my girl goodbye as she left for work then listened for the telltale sign of her leaving the driveway. I gathered 2 Oxy 40mg, 1 Oxy 10mg, 5 carisoprodol 350mg, 2 doxylamine 25mg as well as a pill grinder and proceeded to the kitchen. I laid the pills out on a plate on the counter to make sure that I had the correct number that I wanted of each. Then I placed all of the oxycodone into my pill grinder. After twisting the grinder for a few minutes, I opened it to make sure that I was satisfied with the powder inside. Next, I sat the grinder down and grabbed a bottled water from the refrigerator.
6:15 AM - I pour the 90mgs of oxycodone powder into my mouth, chew it a bit more for good measure, then wash it down with bottled water. Quickly, I pop the remaining pills into my mouth, 1750mgs of carisoprodol and 50mg of doxylamine, washing them down immediately with the water on an empty stomach.
6:20 AM - Iím not feeling any noticeable effects yet, nor do I expect to. I quickly gather headphones, my music player, a comfy blanket, and a pillow. I set up my spot on the couch for the next several hours and select my mellowing out rock playlist.
6:30 AM - It has only been 15 minutes, but Iím starting to feel very relaxed already. I attribute it to chewing the ground up oxycodone after grinding it. Whatever the case, the opiate warmth is coming on.
6:45 AM - Woah! What is going on here? The music sounds magical. I question whether these songs will ever sound this great again. I quickly stop caring as I take in every moment of this bliss. The euphoria is mind-blowing, literally undefinable with words alone. Here I am, coiled in my softest blanket, having never felt so amazing in my entire life.
7:00 AM - It is 45minutes after dosing and I think I am arriving at the peak. I donít want to come back down from this cloud. The synergy between the oxycodone, carisoprodol, and doxylamine is perfect. Iím barely itching, Iím melting into the couch, and I am at peace with everything in existence.
7:15 AM - I am at the summit of this experience. I thought hydrocodone was amazing, a new level of elation, and on a stratum of its own.
7:40 AM - I look at the time because the experience is already fading. I am still in a magnificent state of body and mind, but the intense euphoria has ended too soon.
9:00 AM (T + 2:45) - The euphoria has tapered off significantly, but I am nodding my head off. Earlier, when I was actually trying to just lay around in the warmth of my blanket on this cold winterís day, I didnít notice it, but now that I have removed my headphones and am trying to watch television, itís clear that I canít stay conscious. Iím trying to find a movie to watch on TV from the cable dropdown menu, but I canít keep my head up or my eyes open long enough to actually read the list.
9:15 AM (T + 3:00) - The three hour mark has arrived. I always pay attention to the half hour and hour marks no matter what. These are important guidelines. I have quit my hunt for a movie and decided that there is no way I can pay attention to much of anything. Therefore I decide to just hunker down and try to nap.
12:00 PM (T + 5:45) - No chance of sleeping. Still nodding like crazy. Mind wandering. Iím not awake but Iím not asleep. Occasionally I drift off into random thoughts.
2:30 PM (T + 8:15) - Eight hours later, an alarm I set earlier goes off. Itís time for me to get to work, straightening up the apartment, washing the dishes, vacuuming the floors, etc. I nibble on some toast and crackers. I donít want to become nauseous. My head feels foggy. The aftermath of high doses of oxycodone have a tendency to leave me in one of three states: afterglow happy, emotionally unreceptive/apathetic, or easily agitated.

Having some time for a dose to wane before human interaction helps me manufacture positive feelings. Iím feeling quite apathetic.
Around 4:00 PM I shower and have recovered my energy levels enough for when my gf comes home. I was able to clean the apartment, but only time will restore my energy and dopamine levels.
In conclusion, it was a very positive experience. Iím not sure why the amazing euphoria subsided much sooner this time than with oxy or morphine alone, but a little cimetidine (tagamet) should handle that next time. Be careful with mixing respiratory depressants like oxycodone and carisoprodol (Soma). Stay safe.
