I inject 40mg's of oxymorphone 3 times a day. Why won't a detox center take me?

I inject 40mg's of oxymorphone 3 times a day. Why won't a detox center take me?

Beats me: However, the success rate of detox is extremely low, unless it is followed by a strong support program, and ideally a formal residential treatment program. Some make it with detox and na, but most people do better with a maintenance therapy. See if there are Buprenorphine and/or Methadone providers in your area. There is nothing life-threatening about opiate withdrawal, and inpt is not necessary. Read more

I'm allergic to Morphine, so will I be allergic to Oxymorphone medications also?

Opiate allergies?: It depends. Alot of folks claim to be allergic to various medications, when in fact, they have side effects. Since we do not know what your reaction was to Morphine, it's kinda hard to predict what you might experience with other drugs. My advice is to try and avoid taking Opiates on a regular basis, as you may become dependent and then have withdrawal symptoms when you don't take the Opiates. Read more
