    I have had two close relatives on prednisone, and for both of them it alone can make them feel really speedy. Combined with cocaine and wellbutrin would probably make sleeping very difficult. As the previous commenter mentioned, combining oxys into this is probably a bit dangerous.

    The comments about death in combination with cocaine and opiates or any other drug is possible
    depending on how much and the situation. Frightening people is not the key here. Basically any drug in combination with another could cause a major health problem as we are all very much not the same makeup. Cheers,

    I am wondering if you were diagnosed because you had pain and found out you had a neurological message going on.... or just a process of elimination over the pain after you were taking your anti psychotic medication? I've been taking oxycone for my pain my back and neck disc issues um for about a year now, was having joint pain and stiffness all over my body the Dr put me on cymbalta and now three weeks later he put me on wellbutrin and I'm wondering about seratonin syndrome... I'm having muscle twitching also lump on top of my head and vision problems.

    I too am a chronic pain sufferer, I drove over a explosive in the middle-east. I don't understand what or why this thread was written up like a true medical study, to me it looks more like a recreational train wreck, some listed drugs have reverse reactions and others simply have no medical need what so ever, personally I would seek professional help and attempt to get off the unneeded drugs and concentrate on the true medical issues. At your age 51, you run the risk of many complications and possibility death from the listed drugs, though who am I to judge, life is way too short enjoy it when your still alive.

    Prison and/or death. Comparing taking coke by inhalation and oxycontin orally is NOT the same thing as speed ball. Kindergarten speed ball maybe. Addiction threshold of oxy is 60mg/day. She should try to stay below that.
    Get her the hell off Pristine/Ketoconazole unless it is absolutely positively necessary. If necessary, try to get a lower dose. Stuff fries the liver & with all the other crap--BAD idea.
    Is there a reason she isn't taking an NSAID? I see prednisone. Would help more than oxy.

    Honestly. She can expect to die very young.

    Everything from heart, kidney, liver, stomach, brain, lungs, immune system, etc. will began to shut down.
    She will most likely become increasingly weak, finding herself in the hospital more often, and eventually die of organ failure. that is unless she dies from an overdoes first.

    I know that I am super sensitive to both codeine and oxy. They actually make me more nauseous and dizzy and i find regular tylenol or ibuprophen to be more effective against pain. I have heard some good things about omega fish oil and gluten free diets. My sister has RA too and when she flares up even pain meds dont help much. She is also gluten intolerant and can feel a marked difference in symptoms when she "slips" and eats gluten-y things. Steroids make your blood pressure high, she takes them when she gets flare ups but tries to ween herself off as the flare up dissipates. She gets weird skin breakouts because steroids also mess with the natural flora of your body. RA sux!!!!

    I just wish the federal government would overhaul Richard Nixon's war on drugs and the whole controlled drug act. I have had my share of pain and you can consider yourself lucky to be able to cope with it. It is the sorry folk out there who have psychiatric disorders which affect the brain's ability to "deal" and cope, and is at a chemical level with them, a neurological mess-up. I know personally, I have phases of time when it is dangerous for me to try and tough it out when my brain sometimes slows down production and release of the natural chemicals like beta endorphin, dopamine, Gammaaminobuteric Acid, and I can find my body aches because Im not making enough natural opiate substances. SO I take drugs given by MD to make me feel normal, like clonazepam, prozac, and sometimes amphetamine in low doses. It is frustrating because people still don't understand and think I am a schmuck for taking drugs to feel normal happiness, calm, joy, relaxation, and to enjoy life's natural pleasures I periodically am unable to feel or appreciate.

    It is true that speedballs, containing opiates and any stimulant. The "speed" in speedball likely refers to amphetamine, which was, prior to 1970, the original or at least most widely used upper in the 1960's. When the Controlled Drug Act was made official, cocaine became hugely popular, as an easier and more available alternative. SO strangely enough it became easier to get a totally outlawed drug than legal controlled drugs, because the new DEA and their most overzealous zealots were too busy finally settling old scores and getting the "dopeheads" and "speedfreeks" with the new Nixonian legislation backing them up like the word of God

    I totally understand where you are coming from. Your comment at the end there helped me understand that I am not "a druggy" as my husband calls me because I need medications to feel an enjoy simple life activities. You're lucky to have found the right combination of medicines to treat your depression. I feel like I've been on a roller coaster for the last 20 years. If I find the "right" combination to treat my severe depression/bipolar2 disorders, then I find myself with one or more intolerable side effects that I must live with, like extreme teeth pain/bruxism. I look at people all the time and say to myself "That person is "normal." "That person is enjoying life." "That person sleeps normally and doesn't need help." "That person is a good mom for doing activities with her child/children." I get sorta jealous, then I start believing what my husband says about me being a druggy and that I am not a good teacher/mom/wife. That I shouldn't need medicine to just have energy to get up and get dressed. But when I read your post it made me feel good, not that you were dealing with depression, but that someone else out there understands how it feels, that my husband is dead wrong and out of line, that my depression is a real disorder and not my fault. Thank you for your post.

    What shouldnt the expexation be...yes, cocaone is an antisthetic...only local, dentists "pink" mouth swab is cocaine based to numb the area and costrict blood vessels toz reduce swelling and bleeding....not for arthritis!..sounds like its a way to find a way out faster by destroying the heart muscle fro. The cocke's super stimulative effect and leave this world. There are other means to treat pain than death and mega doses of narcotics to mask the pain and increase the tolernance of the mds to the point that either there are no interior sinuses lrft by coke use or not enough pain meds to overcome the tolerance....ven IV cocaine use will burn the veins you shoot it in...its a loosing battle...and a painful one from damag thats beendone...Im praying for you guys...

    Formally of you bashing the cocaine for pain, do some research! Brompton's Cocktail is a chronic pain medicine in liquid form that contains cocaine, opiates, and some other meds. It is an evidenced based treatment for chronic pain, so please don't assume just because it has cocaine in it means it's gonna kill you. People suffering from chronic.pain need relief. if Brompton's works, then let them get their much needed relief!!! Without judgement!!

    Just kidding about all that stuff. Who's the doctor that prescribed all that? They probably shouldn't have a license.

    I'm intrigued by your comment on cymbalta. I've been taking it for 2 years and since then I've had sugar disorders, irregular heart palpations and know I just feel like I'm on an adrenaline rush. It's scary. But I would like your opinion on this med I would really appreciate it and maybe then I can get some relief. I'm 33yrs old a mother of 3 boys and unfortunately my health is not the best so I'm trying to get as much info as I can from others that take the same meds I do or know of them. Thanks.. Alicia..

    Cocaine and oxy? Really??? Okay, have your friend continue the cocaine and oxy regimen. Replace the Wellbutrin with 20 mg of MDMA. They're going to want to add a few drops of LSD as well. At bedtime take 5mg Xanax with a marijuana cigarette dipped in embalming fluid. Don't forget to sprinkle some of the cocaine on it.

    how do you know what she meant??? She didn't correct herself, which probably means imo that she wrote it for shock value in the first place!! (in response to the person that said were all stupid!)

    Hi, I would be worried about Serotonin but it usually has specific stages of symptoms. So starts with immediate symptoms like severe headache, dizziness etc.. then progresses- delirium, high fever etc..

    If you were having sensitivity I would look into sensitization or fibro.I had it and went away with Savella... (after neurosurgery)

    @ Alicia - those sound like symptoms of Hypoglycemia. Do you feel better at night and then sometimes have trouble getting to sleep ?

    If it is hypoglycemia - the only treatment I know of is diet related. Removing all sugar and processed carbs from the diet and avoiding caffeine and alcohol. There are many names for sugar - and don't be duped by agave - not much better than corn syrup, which is the same as having sugar! Eat regularly - smaller meals every 3 hours and eat soon after waking up. High protein breakfast is a good start too. I'm vegan so I rely on soybeans a lot for protein. Diet will be much easier for a meat eater as no carbs in meat, but avoid high carb vegies too - like potatoes. Not too much fruit, avoid all dried fruit. I have to avoid bananas and most other fruits too, but can tolerate small amounts of berries. Go stricter in the beginning and then you can experiment and see what affects you and what doesn't. Think of it as a carb intolerance, which is what some refer to it as.

    Death. Cocaine is deadly enough but mixing it with other drugs that can be abused (ie: oxycontin) or potentially leading to suicide (antidepressants).
    Sounds like a new doctor is necessary and treatment for drug abuse/addiction.
    By the way, the disease is RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

    Get your magnesium level checked and discuss hyperandrogenism with your physician. Signs &symptoms could be from many imbalances or conditions.

    Ignore all these people saying DEATH and SPEEDBALL. It depends on the dosage of the oxycontin, so long as it's taken properly, not chewed or above the prescribed dosage she'll be fine, a few lines of coke won't do much damage either. Unless she's railing it all day everyday
