A member asked:

How i'm able to get more pain relief and a better 'buzz' by using a small amount of opioids. as an example i can take a 5mg percocet and feel pretty good, but an hour later take an additional 5mg / 10mg and get no increase in benefit. am i broken?

You are not broken yet, but if you keep going down this road you will be. Opioids classically require a larger and larger dose to achieve the same physical reaction and there in lies the danger for if you cross the line you can kill yourself. Evaluate the cause of the pain and try to work with Advil and Tylenol. Speak to your doctor.

Taking opioids to get a buzz is bad practice and you are at risk of getting addicted. Talk to your doctor about safe pain relief drugs.
