I hurt my back the other day so my doctor gave me some oxycodone to dull the pain. while i was at his office i forgot to ask him whether or not it would be ok to take it while i was using sport supplements. does anyone know if it is ok to take oxycodone while on drive, , and ?

to the OP i wouldnt try it. I mean oxycodone is a very strong pain killer. I doubt you doctor would say its ok to take it with sports sups.

my understanding is that oxycontin works on the same paths as NSAIDs and could limit protein synthesis.
i don't know that it'd be "unhealthy" per se.

our good friend wikipedia says:
The most commonly reported effects include constipation, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, headache, dry mouth, pruritus, and diaphoresis. Some patients have also experienced loss of appetite, nervousness, euphoria, anxiety, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dyspnea, and hiccups, although these symptoms appear in less than 5% of patients taking oxycodone. Rarely, the drug can cause impotence, enlarged prostate gland, and decreased testosterone secretion.

Honestly, It will probably be OK. Oxycodone like all opiates work on various opiate receptors in the brain and thereby reduce your pain.... Things to avoid while on Oxy:
1. Muscle relaxers like Soma and Flexiril. This can lead to
respiratory depress which can lead to DEATH
2. Fatty meals can also increase the absorption of oxycodone
Your typical supplement will not cause any serious potentiation of oxycodone.
Common drugs that should not be mixed with Oxy:
Hope this helps

Thanks Jared. I am a lil unclear as to how Oxy would slow protein synthesis, possibly of the opioid receptor (its a protein) but other places i am not sure... can someone tell me this. It can cause myalgia (muscle pain) and rhabdomyolysis which is the breakdown of muscle fiber that can release myoglobin into the blood which can cause kidney and liver damage. So I guess it can diminish muscle cells but not stop protein synthesis, which would ultimately result in the same thing though....... I think?

Grab some N-A-C if you plan on taking a painkiller (esp those with acetaminophen) for extended periods. N-A-C is a great all around supplement anyhow, but in clinical trials it has shown to help with acetaminophen induced hepatoxicity.
Freedom means nothing here.

I wouldn't worry about the toxicity on your liver. Back in the day I went on a 2 month bender of vicodin, oxycontin and soma. Won't go into details but the milligrams were in the thousands everyday. Liver was and is still doing good.

We have more housewifes on opiates than heroin addicts. There are many professional athletes that are addicted to pain killers also.

Does anyone have any advice on what to say to a doc/what kind of doc to see to get a decent prescription. I have pretty severe pain in my back, both a low back nerve/spine issue and a mid back lat tear.... stops me from sleeping/working now and then, but all my guy is writing me is naproxen which is great for my failing knees but useless otherwise

People who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) (other than aspirin) such as naproxen may have a higher risk of having a heart attack or a stroke than people who do not take these medications. These events may happen without warning and may cause death. This risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long timebasically, DONT drink on this stuff, DONT take it on a empty stomach, and DONT be on it for more than 2-3 weeks at a time. If your in pain, something is wrong..... if it doesn't "feel better" after 2-3 weeks you need to go see a specialist and get the problem figured out that way. Naproxen is a anti-inflammatory that is just honestly not good for you at all. It is a very serious medication and should really only be taken if you really need it for a short period of timeNSAIDs such as naproxen may cause ulcers, bleeding, or holes in the stomach or intestine. These problems may develop at any time during treatment, may happen without warning symptoms, and may cause death. The risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time, are older in age, have poor health, or who drink three or more alcoholic drinks per day while taking naproxen.

One thing a great doctor told me was that if I did have pain, don't be afraid to tell a(/your) doctor about it. He was the one who did my hip surgery after finding the problem of SCFE on an X-Ray my ex-doctor didn't... 6 months before .

Out of curiosity, and in keeping with the main subject of the thread, are you taking any performance enhancement stuff while consistently using the Percocet? If so, have doctors ever checked your liver enzymes to see how youíre responding to perpetual use of the drug? Iím in the midst of PCT myself right now, and there are certain things that I donít dare stop taking while popping the Percocet. Though we all respond differently to such things, it would be encouraging to hear that a fellow iron combatant has combined the two with minimal risk.
I hear you on the surgery front. Iíve got a torn labrum in my right shoulder and three herniated discs in my lower back, and Iíve been avoiding the knife for years. But, dude, titanium plates and three tendon tears make me look healthy! I wish you the best of luck in the healing process!
