Common Questions and Answers about Percocet 10 mg acetaminophen

percocet

The researchers for the medical profession are now leaning towards changing the recommendation to a max of 2,500 mgs per day. There are 7.5 mg hydrocodone bitartrate and 325 mg acetaminophen tablets available. I would suggest that at your next refill you request the 7.5/325 dose. In my opinion there is no need to take more tylenol than required. However you may find that the added acetaminophen does make a difference in your pain levels.
That way on one of your dosing hours you will take 5 mg. No need for 10 mg each dose. Remember to write the time of each dose too ok? Get the other stuff like magnesium & Imodium We are here for you.
Smoking Perks sounds a bit odd, they are mostly acetaminophen (Tylenol), so likely 500 or 750 mg of that for every 30 mg of oxy. I strongly recommend against smoking these! You're asking some great questions, so I wanted to bump your post back to the top as I don't have time to answer right now! I'm certain others will, and I'll try to check back when I have more time...
Percocet also causes tolerance meaning that over time the same dose may not work as well for your pain and you may need to ask your doctor for new prescribing instructions to take a slightly larger amount to yield the same amount of pain relief you experienced in the beginning.
I have been clean for over 4 yrs now but due to herniated discs and spinal stenosis, my doctor has put me on MSContin 30mg 2x daily, Percocet/Acetominophen 325 10 mg 3x daily and Valium 10 mg 3x daily for pain. I go to a county doctor who is not knowledgeable about any of these things. I must see him due to lack of insurance and low income. I wonder if anyone out there would know of the effects this drug combo could have on my liver.
On the Vicodin it says: 500 mg/5 mg the percocet is 5-325mg
Well oxycontin is the main ingredient in percocet, however it's not in time released form. The difference is percocet has acetaminophen 325mg to be exact. Increasing the dosage of percocets is bad because of the acet. Alot of times doctors perscribe oxycontin, or roxicets.... because the patients stomach can't handle the acet. It's very hard on the stomach. I hope that answers your question.
The combination that works for me and gives me the ability to function as a father and husband is the 10/325 percocet x 4 daily, gabapentin 400mg x 3 daily, meloxicam 30mg x 1 daily and one 350 mg soma at night.
They are not the same. Percocet is oxycodone/acetaminophen and Norco is hydrocodone/acetaminophen. They both come in many strength's as seen on this web page http://www.pharmer.
Hey everyone,first let me say it takes a very very strong person to get off pain pills,i to am addicted,i went 4 days 2 weeks ago without anything,as soon as i got a couple hundred in my hands i backslided and bought 20 of the 10 mg vics,and 10 of the 15 mg oxys,i knew better,i was almost past the withdrawals and getting back to normal and i ****** up,anybody who tells you its easy is a damn liar,i have 1 and a half oxys left,im trying ti ween myself off,so the withdrawals arent so bad,i tried c
I started off slow for the first month or so but for the last 2 months I have been taking over 100 mg per day. Sometimes I take perc 5's, perc 10's, vic 5's, i have had some perc 30s on days where my guy couldnt get anything but them. My main thing is that I think about it and I count the hours and stare at the clock! Current situation.....I am 8.5 hours into this!! Ugh i know, that is NOTHING! I am having body aches, hot and cold flashes, and just feeling like crap.
So if you were prescribed 10 mg of oxycontin you were receiving less than 1 mg of oxycodone per hour versus the 10 mg of percocet that was released immediately into your system. I don't know if you have had addiction issues in the past as you didn't state anything that would make me believe that. If you don't have addiction issues, it is very unlikely that would become addicted to the medication. Your body may become dependant but that is completely different.
Opiates are also known for their high addiction potential. Just for reference, Percocet is often 325 mg. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and 5 mg. Oxycodone. Percocet is Immeadiate Release, but you'd be more likely to overdose on Acetaminophen than the Oxycodone.
Did not help, gave me vicodin 500 mg... also to take aleve with this, did not help, now percocet and still in pain and my knee feels tight almost like it is swollen to bend the knee. It hurts to drive as the pain is awful and there is nothing he can do. Says I have arthritis in my knee. So now what?
i went from 240-300 mg of oxy a day down to 10 mg in two days. i thought i was gonna die the worst part for me is the cold sweats that last all day, add the runny nose sneezing stomach cramps insomnia irritable as hell and if makes one hell of a week. i've been on meds for over 5 years from a skiing accident that left 5 discs damaged.

If adopted by the Food and Drug Administration, the changes would lower the maximum over-the-counter Tylenol dose and would ban two narcotic painkillers, Vicodin and Percocet, which also contain acetaminophen. Yet another painkiller, propoxyphene, was the target of FDA action on Tuesday. Also sold as Darvon and in an acetaminophen combination called Darvocet, it has been linked to accidental overdoses and suicides.
I still take valium along with my morphine but I had to taper from 5 mg a day to 3-4 mg a day. My fingers sometimes go numb at night due to the valium. You shouldn't have to suffer as much as you are. Make an appointment as soon as possible to see what medication changes can be made to better control your pain. Best of luck to you.
I went to the neurosurgeon and he stated I wasn't a candidate for surgery and suggested another MRI in 6 months (June) In January I had my prescription changed to reduce the amount of acetaminophen from 500mg to something less. The physician assistant suggested Norco 10/325. One tablet 2X a day. She thought it would work as well if not better. (a bit more hydrocodone, less tylenol) So since Jan 22 2010 (approx 2.5 months) I have taken 1 tablet twice a day.
For the average healthy adult, the recommended maximum dose of acetaminophen over a 24 hour period is four grams (4000 mg). A person who drinks more than two alcoholic beverages per day, however, should not take more than two grams of acetaminophen over 24 hour. Also, a single dose of 7 to 10 grams of acetaminophen can cause liver injury in the average healthy adult. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

For the average healthy adult, the recommended maximum dose of acetaminophen over a 24 hour period is four grams (4000 mg) just In case you dont know; for example a Vicotin 10/325 tablet. The 325 represents 325mg Acetaminophen.
Norco is the same active ingredient as Vicodin and Lortab (hydrocodone), but the Tylenol (acetaminophen) content is lower at 325mg than the 500mg in Lortab and Vicodin.
I was on this medication from Jan-Apr of this year at 30 mg bid (i.e., twice a day). 5 mg of Opana ER is equivalent to 10 mg of oxycodone. Oxycodone is the active ingredient in Percocet. I don't know how many 5/325 mg Percocets you were taking a day before switching to the Opana ER 5 mg, but to have equivalent pain relief from the Opana ER, you had to have taken only 2 Percocets a day.
Usually the Percocet (Oxycodone/Acetomenophen) that is precribed at 7.5 mg has 325 mg. of Tylenol in it. I have been precribed 7.5 and 10 mgs. after surgery and they both contained 325 mgs. of Tylenol. They are not scored and can't be split evenly like the 5mg. dose if you want to just take half.
I do have MS and take Percocet for pain. 3 a day but that only adds up to 975 mg of acetaminophen. Way below the daily allowance for liver problems. Im between insurance so looking for some input here.
Oxycodone (contained in percocet, roxicodone, oxycontin) is about 2 times the strength of morphine (i.e., 10 mg of morphine equals 5 mg of oxycodone). Therefore, 5 mg of oxycodone is about 16 mg of hydrocodone so oxycodone is about 3 times stronger than hydrocodone. However, geminigirl is right in that everyone is different. I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa. For me, percocet works a lot better for my pain.
Vicodin/Lortab/Hydrocodone-2.5 mg, 5mg 7.5 mg,(ES) 10 mg, they come with 500-750 mg of Acetem. Norco(=vicoden/hydrocodone too) 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, they usually come with 250 mg acetem.(Tylenol) Percocet/Percodan (Oxycodone) 5mg, 10mg anywhere from 250-750 mg (tylenol) Oxycontin usually comes in 10, 20,60,80 mg and typically doesn't have any tylenol. Morphine comes is pill form as well as intravenous for severe pain.
