Common Questions and Answers about Percocet how supplied

percocet

I need to talk to someone about my percocet problem and how to stop taking them. I have tried to register but I don't know if it's working - could you just answer so I know I am getting through so we can talk?
What is the difference this time? I really think it has to do with how hard and drawn out this has been. And my determination. I did go to one NA meeting early on. My problem is I guess is I believe i can do things myself. The meeting was ok but nothing life changing. I am planning on going back. Anyway the bad WD lasted about 2 weeks. My wife kept pushing me through. The really bad stuff was like 5-6 days. The sweats lasted about 3 whole days maybe a little more like 3 1/2.
I am due to start back to work on Aug 1 -- the way I feel, I dont know how I am going to manage. I have an executive position and I travel on business a lot. Just lifting my arm to brush my teeth in the morning is a challenge. I have quit smoking and alcohol -- both of which I abused for many years -- but I never experienced this kind of lethargy and depression when I gave up those substances. Is there anything more I can do to get some energy, clear my head, feel good about life?
The problem now though is that after a while, that one gate cannot open fast enough to accept the unusually high amount of Dopamine that is being supplied, so being the amazing organ that the human brain is, it simply grows another gate to help it accomodate. So, now we have 2 gates that are open and want to be fed. So instead of needing to only take 1 or 2 pills a day, suddenly we find that we need 3 or 4.
Individuals who divert and acquire pharmaceuticals through doctor shopping do so by visiting numerous doctors in an attempt to obtain multiple prescriptions for the drugs, particularly prescription narcotics such as OxyContin, Percocet, and Percodan. Doctor shoppers often falsify or exaggerate symptoms in order to obtain prescriptions for pharmaceuticals and often visit doctors they believe to be more likely to write prescriptions for such drugs.
Have you tried quitting and doing it with otc medication? No one is going to be able to tell you how to get pain medication and I doubt any doctor will prescribe that amount if your MRI doesn't show damage. I hope you can get through this without the use of narcotics. Best of luck.
i think that's why I'm having such a hard time now, because i've done this too my body so many times~ quitting, starting again. You can do it, I'm proud of you for how long it's been! I honestly got to the point at one time that i thought, "i don't remember really what i liked so much about them" I want to feel like that again. It of course just takes time, you'll have good days and bad and you're just having a few bad... do whatever you can to stay busy.
He lays next to me and holds me and starts rocking with me. He tells me how strong ive been and how proud he is of me. Without him i wouldve given up. He turned out to be my angel. I do not recommend facing withdrawal on your own. You need someone standing in ur corner. I stayed clean till now. I am struggling with the nostalgia and happiness they made me feel. I am depressed right now and i just want comfort from the pain but i dont want to ruin my life.
um yeah. thanks. yes crappy doctor since he helped get me addicted to the hydrocodone/percocet in the first place by giving me 120 a month every month for a loong time.. So anyway this is my second day going through withdrawal and i am a mess.. i cry at everything i see and hear..its ridiculous.. however i did get some vitamin b tablets that are specifically for stress.. and they seem to actually help.. but rather than take them once a day i want to go for twice a day..
I am a 57 year old female and I have been on oxycontin and percocet for 6 years (prescribed by a chronic pain physician). For a number of reasons, I need to go off of these drugs. They are destroying my life and I feel sick all the time, as if I am in a constant state of withdrawal. I have tried to go off in the past and I never made it because the withdrawals were simply too intolerable.
I have many other conditions but this is the one who prescribes my opiates so I needed to come clean with her about my addiction and how to approach it. She's a wonderful doctor and proved that even further to me today with her compassion. Here's what she wants me to do although I'm a basket of nerves about it. I told her no more opiates and she smiled and ask if I would consider a compramise(sp?).
I think if you supplied a little more information you will be more likely to get responses. For example, did you happen to run out of your medication before the refill was due, is the surgeon someone you've had a long relationship with, have you tried contacting your primary care doctor for helping in getting in touch with the surgeon's office, etc. I hope you will continue calling the surgeon's office.
But I would think if it is a generic it would be indicated some how as Sandee described. I was curious so I have my father's bottle in hand. He lives with me and I take care of him. It simple says, "Oxycontin" along with the dose. Beneath the "Oxycontin" it says, "MFG Purdue Frederick." I assume his is not the generic. I also assume that generic is not available because he signed a paper at the pharmacy requesting all medications to be generic whenever possible.
So now with my career comes ALOT of heavy lifting, so comes a bad back. Since I already knew how much the percocet helped, I kinda just skipped everything else. Even knowing a ibuprofen would prolly help just as good, but wouldnt give me that high I continued chasing for a year. So Im really sick of feeling ashamed, worried, and just flat out horrible when Im coming down or getting low.
I'm looking for a treatment center to help with prescription drug abuse (norco, percocet, ativan) and there are two that seem to be willing to work with me financially. My insurance is Medicare and they don't cover residential treatment for anything, only inpatient detox if needed. The two places I'm looking at are Malibu Horizon and Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat. I haven't found really any online review of either facility.
I was taking for two wks percocet (oxycocone-acetaminophen 5-325) 2 every 3 hours(5 doses daily) vs opana ER 5mg 1dose 2tms dly which is generally stronger? And how do most people out there like opana?

My mom stopped buying the vicodin because her credit cards are so maxed out she cant afford to anymore...I have no idea how she is getting off them...because i cant do it for myself and she takes twice as much as me. I dont want to tell her i am addicted to them...or anyone else. Im embarrassed, and i cant afford to go to any rehab center...i dont have money...i cant take time off of work. Alot of the money i make, i buy my own pills....
Yes, Oxy IR and Percocet are the same drug, but Percocet have tylenol in them. The Tylenol acts as a catalyst for the oxycodone in the Percocet, kind of like the caffeine in aspirin does. I don't know why he'd take you off one and put you on the other, since too much Tylenol is very damaging to the liver, and pure oxycodone is a much safer choice for someone who is on pain medication long term. That makes no sense to me.
It is not well known as vicodin , but nearly the same is vicoprophen, (ibuproben instead of acetamophien) as far as the famous celeberties, it is rumored that they were using IV drugs ( yes even prescription pain meds, just shot up) thats a whole different level of addiction just in my opinion, 200 people die per year from this and its tragic,,,how many people die per year from smoking cigarettes, do you see what I mean? How many die from alcohol related deaths?
but why are so many of us, people that just wanted a little relief from the effed up pain we were GIVEN (most so we could continue to work), here tonite, in such pure hell?! How many of you still even have a job since percocet began to rule YOUR life? Cuz I know I don't...maybe not directly an effect of bein on perc in my case, but c'mon...go to work when ya know you're outta your meds?! Ha!I know I NEED to talk tonite...I'm allll alone tonite too...
Does anyone have an idea,as to how strong any strength Opana(brand name) is to Oxycodone? My new PM Dr. wants me to get down from 40mg of Methadone to about 20mg,in only one weeks time,before he starts precribing me Opana. I've already had been taking huge amounts of 15mg Oxycodone a day,for 5 years also,along with the Methadone. I tried to explain to him,just how tolerant,I had become to the Oxy,but I think it fell on def ears.
I was able to quit after a few months and stayed off for a while, but then had a knee surgery (and eventually 2 more knee surgeries) and used that as an opportunity to indulge again. This would be the start of a long relationship with Percocet and Lortab. Over the years I have used online script services to keep myself supplied with Lortab and my local doc writes me about 30 percocets every 4 months or so for my headaches. The pills became a way to feel good, normal, at peace.
In total, i was only on the suboxone for 2 weeks. I was supplied with an array of support medications ( clonidine, paracetamol, zopiclone, dietary supplements,etc... ) and physiotherapy/accupuncture via tensing machine and stimulation of areas around my knees and calves for RLS and my ears and back for restimulation of exogenous endorphin supply).
Percoset is simply put, morphine in a pill form. It is derived from the opium alkaloid thebaine. Also contains 300 mgm's tylenol. Known generically as oxycodone. Mixed with alcohol,death may occur due to your breathing stopping. It is fairly safe if used for a short time and for moderate to moderately severe pain. It is a schedule II narcotic. Its abilty to create addiction is high. Hope that this gives you an idea what percoset is compared to other oral pain killers.
My father lost his bout with cancer about 5 years ago. During his fight, he went through several painful surgeries, most of which resulted in him being prescribed various painkillers -- Oxycontin, Vicodin, Percocet, Roxicet, etc. He never really believed in pain killers, and I admired him for that inner strength. He passed away in 2004, leaving behind cabinets full of painkillers. For years they were untouched, not a single pill unaccounted for.
Hi I have only been in here for three days and I just want to say that this forum has helped me so much even though I just started yesterday, Monday weening off Vicodins. I have been reading through tonight regarding the comments I just would like to say that everyone is different and what works for one may not work for the other or vice versa. So just be careful. I know their are many intelligent people on this forum it is very obvious, addiction does not mean we are dumb or uneducated.
