Do it yourself 'time release' pills

A guy signed into the ER today with complaints of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. During the triage he revealed that he was going on a boat trip and decided to put his pills into a plastic bag and swallow it to make his pills 'time release'. The pills he swallowed included oxycontin and methadone. He really is a darwin award candidate!
