Common Questions and Answers about Can i take percocet and flexeril

percocet

I was told celebrex and flexeril was a no no by my ob and by the pediatrician. I was on it for several years and stopped it when I got pregnant and was told I could not resume taking it until after baby was weaned. Im not sure about the other meds. Sorry I can't be of more help.
She had neck surgery about 5 months ago, and I feel she has become addicted to percocet. Two weeks ago, while drinking and I believe and OD of either percocet, flexeril or both, she had a severe car accident, broke her neck (which did not severe her spine) and her leg, and various bruises and bumps (the only reason she is in such good shape is BECAUSE she was wasted; but then again, the accident wouldn't have happened in the first place-chicken/egg syndrome).
At home, the basic technique is to space out the amount your friend takes on a consistent manner until you take only at night, than half that amount at night, than every other night and then none. I would say he should space out the pills and try to cut down by 5 mg a day. See if his doctor can write him a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep.
My physcian was appaled when she called the drugstore to learn of this and has since ensured my scripts are clarified. I only get percocet and they do still exist. I am at the moment trying to not take any pain meds and am trying ultrasound therapy as I do not want my body to be ruined by the need for pain pills. I am sharing this as an information item to help anyone who may not be aware of the Endocdet problems.
Is Flexeril a addictive drug? I just got off of percocet and I don't want to get dependent on something else that may be addictive.
ive been on percocet since march,off and on, i am having a hard time getting off them and staying off them, right now i am having some weird side effects that are not listed like waking up stiff and swollen and really sore hot achy, then i take 2 i feel a little better then 4 hours later i take 2 again then i feel better, im up to taking 8 a day. i need help and advice, can i die? how can i get through the withdrawls without problems? I have tramadol and flexeril to help is that good?
I started taking them due to a sports injury and now I am struggling to stop. I have not taken more than 10mg in a day which I know is not a large amount. I am still worried about my withdrawals due to the amount of time I have been taking them. The big reason why I am afraid to stop is because of the withdrawals. Will my withdrawal be bad?
I have been taking about 30 mg of percocet a night for about 2 and a half months. Every now and then I would skip a night. Basically I take 4 7.5 pills between 4-10 pm. If I stop now, would it affect me? Should I taper off or just stop? Is 30 mg a lot or a little of it?
Now, I'm out because someone stole some and I do not have enough to take myself off gradually...So I'm pretty sick. I've not told anyone, and I'm wondering if talking a half of one 2 times a day so 1 perc total today and one tomorrow will be enough , i'm sure i'll still deal with the worsening pain and stomach pain , but how sever is it on my body? I have heart palpataions every now and then, and today they are pretty noticable ....
I ran out about 1 hour ago, and am so afraid I can't do it. I called ER and they said I would have to go to inpatient, but I don't have anyone to watch my son for more than the weekend. What would be my best solution to ease withdraws and not give myself a heart attack? I only have access to Flexeril.
The worst part of being off percocet and/or vicodin is that every morning of my life, as far back as I can remember, I have awakened in the morning feeling absolutely horrible...anxious, nervous, butterflies in stomach. I would either throw up or come very close to it. This happened every goddamned day of my worthless life. Then, I discovered that when I took percocet and/or vicodin, I woke up feeling normal.
My pain Doc told me that I wouldn't have withdrawals being on the patch if I don't take the Percocet. It's hard for me to get through without the Percocet...for the pain and life but I have to do it. My appointment is 2 weeks away and I only have 10 Percocet left but plenty of Fentanyl. I have to get through. I'm tired of the lies and trying to get an early appointment, etc. Enough is enough. I can do this right??? Thank you again!!!
The worst part is there is this heavy cloudiness/dizzy feeling in my head that makes me feel like I could die at any moment, and my mind is racing constantly, I feel very anxious. Should I take a pill to alleviate these symptoms or will that just put me back at day one of my withdrawl? I gave my medication to my parents to control my doses if I should need to take one. I don't know if I should suck this up and just deal with it or take a pill to calm myself.
Thus, it is not easy, but it gets better and better over time and you can look forward to a drug free healthy energetic you in the future. When you take opiates for a long time like you have, your body's physiology has been altered. Your central nervous system has created a multitude of opioid receptors that all are screaming for endorphins (opiates) to fill them, but your body has now forgotten how to make them by itself.
I am on day 2 0f percocet withdrawal....like 80 -100 mgs a day for a month. Can I take xanax for anxiety and soma for the muscle pains at the same time?
Hi, I have been exactly where you are! My pain doctor would not listen either. Every time I saw him I would complain that the morphine made me feel "out of it" and that I did not like it. He kept insisting that i take it and then proceeded to up the dosage! Six weeks later I woke up in the ICU hallucinating and suffering from kidney failure! I don't remember how I got there, in fact, I don't remember the whole month of February(2010), and now I suffer from short term memory loss.
I too am not chasing a high. I miss my natural highs and it's eating me up. I don't know how much longer I can hold on. I'm so depressed and feel so helpless.
The second part is, whenever I do get them- I feel great when I take them, I am never sick feeling never anything but healthy and happy but no matter if I take them for 2 days or 2 weeks, when I am out of them, I get uncontrollably crabby, emotional, chills, sweats, basic flu symptoms, is this in my head or becasue my body has been use to them in the past, even now just taking them for a normal amount of time it could cause withdrawls.
He had a lot of medical problems. So began the journey with oxy, hydrocodone and Percocet. I believe he is addicted. How can he detox off this at home?
It didn't help at all, and it actually made me more anxious, and I didn't sleep at all on night 5. I did take an Ambien, and it did nothing for me. I've smoked in the past, and it made me relaxed, but it really turned me off of it. Each day got progressively better from there. At the start of this, I didn't clean my house of leftovers from the taper. This was a mistake. Because on day 9, feeling NO w/d - I thought... hmm, my back kinda hurts, wouldn't a vicodin clear that right up?
Question for the experts: I've been taking about 6 Percocet 7.5's &/or Hydrocodone 7.5-10mg 5x's a day for 4 months now for chronic pain. I'm all out & can't get any filled till 3-3 & would like to try my Neurontin 600mg tid to help with the opiate w/d symptoms. I can go get my Rx for Neurontin this am & only have 1 7.5 Percocet left. Planning to take 1/2 now & 1/2 at 10am. After that I plan on using Neurontin 600mg 3-4 x's daily for w/d till I can refill the other on 3-3.
The narcotics are not working, I am still in pain, no one will help and I can't take much more. I lost my job because of missing so much, I need to get healthy so I can get to work. They have given me every kind of medication you can think of, such as the following : amytripiline, neurontin, lyrica, flexeril, valium, percocet, vicodin, oxycontin, prednisone, cymbalta, celebrex, Ibuprophen 800 mg, Motrin 800 mg, naprosyn, imitrex, skelaxin, soma, toradol, tylenol w/codeine.
The narcotics are not working, I am still in pain, no one will help and I can't take much more, I get up every day and wish that I didn't, there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel and I am not sure how much more I can take, please help me if you can. I have even went to the Cleveland Clinic which is one of the three top ranked hospitals in the United States, they didn't help at all. I lost my job because of missing so much, I need to get healthy so I can get to work.
I was so happy when my neurosurgeon referred me to pain mgmt.I thought it would be the answer to all my prayers and it has helped a lot .I also take flexeril and neurontin w/ my pain meds but I am still suffering.I thank God I found this site .Thank you so much for your kind welcome. I can't tell you what it means to have someone to talk to that understands. I will try to muster up the courage to talk w/ my PM about this .
I have had 4 surgeries in 2 years and each time I come off the Percocet it seems worst . I am winging off now and it isn't fun . I know if I do it cold turkey I will be done in 5 days. I just don't have it in me this time . I have another Friend who has battled for 3 years coming off Suboxone and he is down to a crumb and cant seem to get past it. He even had a implant put in him if he took opioids he would get ill.
He has me taking Ultram ER, flexeril, Restoril, another muscle relaxer I have to take in the am, and I still hurt like he!!. I'll continue with my vitamins and supplements but I've had it with the rest. I've told him several times that the Ultram ER has stopped working, he wants to keep upping the dosage. I already take 400mg a day. I have had more relief with the Lorcet that I had left over from my knee replacement than with anything, yet he refuses to give me a script.
Of course, everything should be done to minimize exposure to the baby, and post-birth withdrawl. I just want to make it clear that there is help for pregnant women, there is information. We just need to make sure everyone involved in our care is informed. If you are having issues with this, please contact me. You're not alone in taking medication while pregnant. I am posting a link to the information as it's a PDF and it seems a little complicated to cut and paste.
The heavier the medication I take, the more it seems I am looking at life through a fish lens. It makes me sleepy and I don't eat right. It has taken me 15 years, 15,000 tears, and lots of sleepless nights to decide to get off meds. I may not make it, but I am going to give it my best. It is a very, very tough decision. I even had my intrathecal pain pump removed.
I was taking adult dose of Tyelnol extra strength and Flexeril for several months in a row right before diagnosis (for acute cervical pain.) If I ran out of Tylenol, I would take EC-aspirin with the Flexeril. I'm convinced today that one of them (or all three of them) were assaulting the heck out of my liver back then. If I had to choose today what to take for pain or fever (Tylenol vs. Ibuprofen) I guess it would be Tylenol since both GI docs have said I can take that.
5 yrs ago when I was finally dx'd with DDD. I was give percocet 5/325 this I used only one everyday and it was just enough to allow me some comfort. My pain has never been as severe as some of you here post but it has been enough to keep me from alot of daily activities like gardening, Housework even sitting at a computer desk or stairs hurt me...I spent most of everyday laying on a heating pad.
