Tried to search for something on this, but since we have a use named mallinckrodt, the search is fucked.
Anyway, I got my hands on 5 50mcg/h mallinckrodt patches the other day. I'm used to the duragesic matrix type -- I cheek them and can get quite high on 1/3 of a 75mcg/h dura patch. The mallinckrodts are matrix style, but smaller and 'thicker' than duras. For my first try I cut one in half and cheeked it. 25mcg/h would normally give me a nice buzz in 25 minutes. I didn't feel anything for an hour or more, so I added the other (cheeked). Having underestimated the duragesics before, I was kind of worried about having 50 in my mouth, but I really was feeling nothing. 2 hours later and I still don't feel ANYTHING. I keep trying to convince myself something's happening, but it was placebo affect at best.
So I think, maybe they are abuse proof so I'll have to use them as directed. The next day I start putting them on and end up with over 150 worth all over me (please don't do this, it's stupid). Tried heating them up, ect. NOTHING! These came from sealed, unexpired 'envelopes' (whatever you call them). the only thing I can think is the person they came from left them in a REALLY hot car or something and they got fucked. I talked to the person I got them from and her boyfriend had the same experience -- she thought he was just trying to get more when he complained they didn't work.
I just got a buzz off of 2 roxies so this isn't some ridiculous tolerance thing, or because I take small amounts of suboxone (2-3 mgs) between runs.
Based on FDA docs I saw on google, mallin has been making fent patches for less than a year. Has anyone else tried them? Do they work buccally? WTF do you think might have happened with the ones I got?
