Unhappy Tabletted high dosage hydromorphone

here in the UK the only IR HYDROMORPHONE we can get is Palladone caps in 1.3 and 2.6mg strengths, not nearly enough for my dosage of 14mg PRN as rescue medicine (I am on the 120mg Oxycontin tabs but they have an average duration of action of nearer 6.5 hours than the 12 hrs stated on the box, necessitating rescue meds) but can not find any source for the TABLETTED forms they have in Canada and the USA which are usually in 2, 4 and 8mg strengths.
Can anybody let me know where to obtain these tablets, in particular the 8mg White triangles, at reasonable cost? I used to have a good friend (RIP Nick) who would send me several things on a monthly basis that are not available here in the UK for no charge - I would send him some UK anxiolytics as an exchange. Hydrocodone bitartrate, oxymorphone (Endo OPANA E612/613 blue 5mg and pink 10mg), Fioricet with and without codeine for migraine and cluster/tension headache, the best medicine I have ever had for such a condition, and Grenstone alprazolam 1 and 2mg (G3721/3722), the ONLY alprazolam bar the branded XANAX made in the USA which would be considered even 'acceptable' quality in Europe - almost all US-made alprazolam is complete garbage and few are worse than the most-dispensed of all, Sandoz generic GG249 2mg tabs - which also happen to be the most counterfeited alpmInhave the world. Quite why one of the poorest brands available should be so widely faked is beyond my intelligence, but that is a fact.
Is anyone able to help in any way whatsoever? I can not find a single place in the US which will send medicines to the UK now. Surely someone can come up with something?
I also have to go to the Low Countries for prescriptions for other medications n/a here; the patient choice in the UK a has declined drastically since the mid-80s and never quite so quickly and brutally as the past five years or so. A prescription for XANAX here is nit worth the bother as it is available only up to 500mcg and costs more than XANAX in any other country of which I know.
The new Actavis IR Oxycodone capsules LYNLOR are excellent and a third of the price of branded Oxynorm.
For benzodiazepines the UK is an absolute disgrace - there are only TEN left on the NHS list!
Thanks folks!
