Common Questions and Answers about Can i take percocet and flexeril


I was told celebrex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I believe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> OD of either <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then none. I would say he should space out the pills <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am so afraid I can't do it. I called ER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>/or vicodin is that every morning of my life, as far back as I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span>. It's hard for me to get through without the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span>...for the pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
I am on day 2 0f <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> 80 -100 mgs a day for a month. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> 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 think you need to put down the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> xanax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> talk with your doc about some clonidine. By your own admission, the percocet isn't giving you much relief. you have been on it for a while, trying to get off the sub. What's going to happen when you stop the percocet? Back to sub to get off of the percocet? can't keep that up or you will just continue a bad cycle! and the xanax can bite you QUICK. Before long you will find yourself having to taper off of it, if you don't already!
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
It didn't help at all, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it actually made me more anxious, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it has helped a lot .I also take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> it seems worst . I am winging off now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I still hurt like he!!. I'll continue with my vitamins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> 5/325 this I used only one everyday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
I DON'T THINK I can TAKE THE WITHDRAWS NOT TO MENTION THEY SAY ITS DANGEROUS TO GO COLD TURKEY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I'M NOT SURE IF I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>can</span> TAKE THE PAIN EITHER WHAT DO I DO? I NEED HELP TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT.
Maybe the 30 on them is a lot number. Anyway, I can't go C/T cause I have a job <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> kids to take care of, so I will try tapering off and see how that goes. I just needed a little more info and support to get me going. I was just worried that I would suffer physical damage going C/T or should I just tough it out and get it over with. Any suggestions on witch way to go?
