Common Questions and Answers about Percocet substitute

percocet

about 20-30mg of Oxy per day and 20-40 mg of Percocet per day. Week 4-5: 10mg per day of Oxy (at night) and about 20mg of Percocet per day. I didn't taper at all, just quit it last Friday afternoon. After this experience, I really wished I had tapered down even just a bit to maybe 10-15 mg per day then the gone off. Who knows. Thanks for your support.
He now says he wants to go back to percocet telling me he has a better time coming off them than T-1's. I am really scepticle. Has anyone heard or had a similar experience? Should I believe him? The doctor is very willing to help so he may oblige him. My feeling is if he has already recuced his habit down to 15 tabs, why not continue along this course?
Please do not try to taper the dose of Percocet on your own as it contains an opioid oxycodone. The tapering of Percocet follows the oxycodone dose tapering schedule. Of the many ways to taper, one way is 25% reduction in oxycodone dose each week, keeping acetaminophen dose in the combination as same. This means you need to reduce by 2.5mg every week (10mg to 7.5 mg to 5 mg to 2.5 mg).
Hi, I am running out of my percocet script early, is it ok to take tramadol in between to try and extend the few percocets I have? I cannot do withdrawel right now. I need something to stretch the Percocets out for about 5 days until my next script is ready. I use my meds for pain, but I ALWAYS run out about 4 days early. I am currently not using tramadol, but I have some, will they be an ok substitute for a week or so? Or will I still get W/D? Thank you, and God Bless Us all!

I have tramadol and flexeril to help is that good?
If something else is necessary, since addicts have a higher tolerance for pain meds, the idea is to prescribe at twice the normal dosage, for half the usual amount of time. For example, 2 percocet every six hours, rather than one. Also, it is important that YOU control the meds and not your daughter. Finally, any narcotic meds will start the cravings again after they are gone--an unfortunate result. Hope this is helpful.
I've been doing some thinking lately and I'm trying to get some perspectives on substitute drugs and maitenence programs like suboxone and methadone. It's been a hot button topic on this forum and I think it would be beneficial to have all points of view and experiences shared in one place so others can view a good source of information. Many of you know my story, I was taking about 400mg of oxycodone a day when I quit.
Okay so my friend has been giving me percocet this past month maybe 2 months, and I had my period at the end of may but it only lasted 2-3 days. And ever since then I haven't had my period. I'm really worried. I know for a fact I am not pregnant. Its been maybe a week or two since I've had a perc. What do I do? I've stopped taking percocet, should my period come back? Or no? Is this something serious? What should I do?
I am having kidney stones and the doctor put me on Percocet and told me to stop the Norco..Is Percocet stronger than Norco? The stones are killing me.
Hi Guys! I have a question that I hope some of you might have an answer to. I am VERY SOON going to stop taking Lorcet 10/650, which was actually supposed to start tomorrow, until my Husband told me that he had to work the weekend & to see if I could stretch the pills until Mon. He was able to get me some Percocet & asked if that would help get me through. I said I'm not sure & then realized that the 2 have different ingredients.

Hi There.. I am getting ready to start to taper off percocet. I have been taking them for about 6-7 mos and I am now up to approx 7-8 5mg a day. I have seen two "detox" physicians and they both offered the same thing..suboxone. I don't want to substitute another drug (possibly more powerful and addicting) for the percocet. Then I have to worry about getting off of that next!
It started with lortab 5mg a few times a day... Then after a few surgeries later I was prescribed to lortab 7.5 and Percocet 7.5 for the pain. I am about 8 weeks out of surgery, and the dr. Is still prescribing me these meds. Tomorrow will be day 2 without anything. I have asked my boyfriend to hide them from me, because I know that I was getting out of control, and could not believe how many prescriptions these dr. Keep giving me.
I HAVE BEEN TAKING PERCOCET FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS NOW, EVERYDAY! IT STARTED FOR BACK PROBLEMS AND THE AMT. I WAS TAKING WAS OKAY IN THE BEGINNING, THEN I STARTED TAKING MORE AND MORE THAN I SHOULD. IT IS NOW TO THE POINT WHEN I DON'T HAVE ANY LEFT, I AM RUNNING AROUND WORRYING ABOUT WHERE I CAN GET MORE, I AM EVEN GOING IN DEBT FROM BUYING THEM OFF THE STREET.

I have been prescribed percocet to maintain my arthritis pain and I am only 6 weeks pregnant. Is this really safe? The prescription says 1-2, 3 times daily. I have been talking 2-3 in a 24 hour period. I am assuming less is better in this case?
Her drugs of choice was percocet and cocaine, and a snorted version of heroin, called train. During pregnancy however, she used only used percocet to substitute, but lots of it. The little girl lately keeps telling me that she her head is confused. She also says the the machines in her head are really loud. She sometimes, very rarely says her head hurts. But it doesnt hinder her play at all. So I dont suspect migraine.

Hi All, I have been reading the posts on here for some time and decided that I would finally ask a question of my own because you all seem so helpful. I have been addicted to percocet for 3 years. I was given them for migraines and kidney stones and the doctor has kept me on them for my migraines. I told her that I want to come off of them and tought I could taper but realized I am not strong willed enough. She gave me 90 tramadol (50mg) and said that would relieve the withdrawal symptoms.
Proposed Tylenol restrictions worry patients FDA is considering reduced maximum dose, ban on Vicodin and Percocet WASHINGTON - Proposed limits on Tylenol, a painkiller as common as pain itself, have left many consumers fearful, confused and wondering where to turn for relief. The potential government crackdown on acetaminophen, Tylenol's main ingredient, would affect everyone from occasional pill poppers to chronic pain sufferers who rely on daily doses to make their lives more bearable.
w/ lymph node tumors pressing on a nerve that went down to my left testicle, then joint pain and neuropathy from the two different chemos, then lower digestive pains from the radiation, then a couple of bouts w/ sciatica, then 2 car crashes a few months of each other (neither of them my fault whatsoever), so now a herniated disk continues to rest and/or leak on a nerve that cannot be rectified via surgery due to the original posterior lumbar fusion - Medical Fixes, you got it - Opiates...

As for the methadone and subutex I really didnt wanna substitute another drug for the percocet I would really rather taper. Is it the physical withdrawal symptoms that are harmful to baby? What if I stop and feel no physical symptoms? I did try to stop at 7 weeks and did so C/T for a week and I just had of course the pain and then really strong cravings/anxiety but not to much physical...
Since I have only 2 percocets left I 'm very concerned because I take them at night. Could I substitute one 5 mg/325mg vicoden for the percocet when the percocet are depleted?
The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
Was taking about 6-9 Percocet a day after surgery and then started getting them from friends because being a single mother of two special needs boys it just eased the stress in the evening from working all day and dealing with other issues. This then became a ritual every night at 7 pm. Of course started with one, then two and as you all know the rest of the story it got up to 8. Then a sleeping pill to fall asleep. Then I finally realized I cannot do this anymore.
Long story here, I was with DR A 2 yrs ago who put be on 5mg Percocet..90 tablets every other week...DR A left the medical center and referred me to DR B..
Eventually, I got off of the oxycontin and just tapered the percocet down until I got down to 7.5 mg and then went off. I think you can just substitute the oxycontin and then gradually go down from there. I was on the meds for 12 years and went off last December. I don't remember the patch being that hard to get off of because I just went on to the oxycontin and then reduced from there. Good luck.
hi there... I'm just wonder if my new neurosurgeon would give my percocet meds for my back pain because I've been having neurofibromatosis type 1 and it's giving me so much pain daily.. I'm going to see him the first time for this.. I've been to my primary doc for percocet twice already and I don't want to keep going to him and making him think that I'm addicted to.. which I'm not.. I need it because the pain always either keep me up at night or it'll wake me up...
