I have about 40ish pills of oxycodone (5 mg). I really like them Does anyone know if I'll be physically dependent by the time the bottle is over?.
My plan is to deal with the pain when they run out. I have no easy way to get more opiates, and I am too afraid to start heading into shady neighborhoods and hang out under overpasses.
Although the physical dependency won't be affected. Why were you prescribed them? Taking oxy for physical pain is different from taking it as emotional support.

That was probably a good decision, in a sense, but kratom is more insidious for me.
Physical dependence on OxyContin develops over the course of a few weeks. But does dependence on OxyContin indicate addiction?.
Also, you can use a standard opioid tapering method to deal with the withdrawal symptoms you are experiencing. If you are experiencing the effects of withdrawal there are medication and home remedies that can help.
Both my son and I think she should stop using now. The danger of physical dependence and mental addiction is become a real threat. My daughter-in-law has been using Oxycontin for around 4 weeks, following a spinal fusion operation. But it’s easy for us. We are not experiencing the pain.

Oxycodone dependency is commensurate with whether an individual takes the medication as directed. The formulations are available as generics but are also made under various brand names. For those ingesting the drug without medical supervision, the dependency risks are extremely high, often resulting in prescription addiction. Tolerance to this class of drug builds quickly with, increased risk to those taking Oxycodone by chewing, snorting, or injecting for the “rush”. Some common examples of compounding are oxycodone with acetaminophen/paracetamol or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. Oxycodone oral medications are generally prescribed for the relief of moderate to severe pain. For those that do, physical and emotional dependence is still a very real risk. Currently it is formulated as single ingredient products or compounded products.

Am J Ther. 2004 Jan-Feb;11(1):26-32. Patient characteristics and risks factors for development of dependence on hydrocodone and oxycodone. Miller NS(1).
The purpose of the study was to document the substantial increase in problematic use of hydrocodone and oxycodone in an addiction treatment population. Our study consisted of a retrospective review of medical records from all patients admitted and discharged in 2000 from Sparrow/St. Lawrence Addiction Detoxification Unit (N = 534). A literature review was conducted in medical journals, governmental groups, and reports including Drug Abuse Warning Network, Pharmacy Times, and National Household Survey on Drug Abuse. More than 144 patients (27%) were dependent on prescription opiate medications. The most frequently mentioned medication was Vicodin (hydrocodone) (53% of the users) followed by OxyContin (oxycodone) (19%). Physicians commonly prescribed these medications (75% of the cases). Predictors of dependence on opiate medications included substance-related diagnoses, positive toxicology for opiates, and other medical diagnoses. Patients under the care of physicians who have other drug dependence diagnoses and medical complaints appear at risk of developing dependence on prescription opiate medications. Proper evaluation and intervention can limit adverse consequences of prescription opiate medications.
