I have finally admitted to myself that I have been taking up to four perks at a time sometimes..not all the time, sometimes have only taken two or three...they are my fear ...the perks..I have gone without the T3's as I said and have even only taken the IR once in a day and sometimes none, but the perks, never go without..havent for about five years now...
Some additional medication may be prescribed to help with the withdrawal symptoms. 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 taking these pills everyday since I broke my elbow, about 5-7 of them until 5 days ago, when I couldn't fill my prescription because it was too early. Anyhow, I pretty much begged and pleaded with the nurse to release my scrip but she said no. So I was basically forced to withdrawal. I have been clean 5 day and feel great. Really. I felt crappy for the first three days but I have been able to hide and push myself to shower and do the usual everyday.
I have been on percocet for a little over two years for RSDS or CRPS as it's not know. After a botched 3rd root canal on the same tooth, I lived in horrific pain for nearly a year and had numerous tests until the diagnosis of elimination was Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome. I have been on all kinds of meds like neurontin, lyrica, etc. The only thing that relieves the pain is percocet. I take 6-8 10/325's a day.
I had major knee surgery 2 years ago and was perscribed percocet 5/325, i actually tried refusing it from my doctor at the release from the hospital because i have always been so extremly scared of taking any medications, even an asprin. anyway i got it filled and took it here and there for my pain. I also suffer from migraines, during my recovery i developed a migraine and took one of the percocets to see if it helped, it did.
And it is highly possible that it is the TC and the release surgery is just as tricky as any major surgery...and it does take time to heal. During recovery from the chiari surgery we r told to expect symptoms to resurface.We all heal at different rates....I have Ehlers-Danlos which many chiarians do...this makes us heal even slower..... I pray the bladder issues clear up as he weans off the meds and continues to heal.
I mean, I know Oxycontin is slow release, but percocet is Oxycodone and how is that different from the Oxycontin? I thought they were the same only, one was slow release and one was not, but there must be another difference... Right?
I normally take percocets 3x/day (5mgX2) Is the correct conversion 10 mg oxycontin = 1 percocet? I am looking to find a non-narcotic pain reliever this summer that will be helpful so I can get off them in the summer when I have time away from work......but for now, I need to figure this out...... Any suggestions on the conversion would be lovely..... Thanks!!
Then, there is Oxycontin, which is a long acting, sustained release form of Oxycodone (again, no Tylenol). Then there is Percocet, which is Oxycodone with Tylenol (which is available in different strengths).
I've been a pain patient for 10 years now and been on so much stuff and this is actually the first time I've been on Percocet. He told he to take the Percocet and Xanax together and its actually brought my pain down A LOT but not enough so Ill probably end up with a pain pump.
She also gave me 60 percocet 5/325 for breakthrough pain. I didn't feel drugged up from the morphine, just tired all the time. So lazy and queasy too all the time. I told my doctor I hated the medication. SInce I was so used to percocet and it worked, she put me on oxycontin. That worked great. I felt so much better. Unfortunately my insurance won't pay for it and I can't afford $218 a month for it. So my doctor put me back on the ****** morphine. I thought I would give it more of a shot.
I don't have insurance right now so I can't afford both scripts at the same time. When I take the percocet, it releives all my pain and allows my body to relax, but when I take the morphine it feels like it does nothing. I still have pain, stiffness, etc. I thought morphine was stronger than percocet, so why doesn't it work?
Hello everyone, im newhere, and finding a lot of great literature on here for my "issue". Quick back story, i had severe endomitriosis and thats where the percocet started, about a year ago. Slowly the dosage went up to where i was taking 8-10 7.5mg per day, as directed. In March i had a full hysterectomy and continued the percocet, now its 6 months later, and my dosage is still the same, and im having to get early scrips due to running low quicker then usual.
It may be wise to up the oxycontin as for how many percs you were taking simply spreading 20mg of time release oxycodone over a 12 hour period is likely not enough but he may be working you up to a more realistic dose. Try to stick out his schedule as messing up now may prevent him from upping your dose as he may intend to do.
The only difference between percocet and oxycontin is that oxycontin is oxycodone ER (which means extended release) schedule II's are the most addictive, second to Schedule I's which are analagesics (pain relievers) with no theraputic benifit. such as heroin. Norco- is basically lortab with less tylenol. Norco is hydrocodone with 325mg of tylenol and Lortab is hydrocodone with 500mg of tylenol.
percocet 10/325, oxycodone extended release 20 mg. I started taking more and noticed that if i just take a lot every day, I don't ever get a migraine, at all. So I'd say I'm taking btween 80-100 mg. total a day. Last week I tried to stop, because I am getting close to my due date and don't want to have a baby born addicted. Well the withdrawals were awful.
5 Percocet for about 3 yrs now and got tired of Chasing the pill so I asked my Doctor for a time release pain meds and he suggested the Fentanyl am hoping I made the right choose for my Pain.. It hasn't been a good 14 yrs living with back pain when all else failed I turned to meds relief was very well needed lets hope I don't regret it .. Thank you once again.
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 AM SCARED AND DON'T WANT TO BE IN PAIN ALWAYS, BUT, I WANT TO BE ABLE TO COME OFF THEM WITHOUT HAVING HEART FAILURE OR WHATEVER.
After not sleeping and hurting all of the time I went back and told him this just wasn't working, he then put me on percocet 10mg. I am now taking 4 pills at one time and go through a bottle in 2 days. I finally had surgery a month ago and the pain is still VERY BAD, not from the actual surgery but the same pain as before the surgery. I am taking the pain meds to relieve the pain and they do VERY LITTLE, it just dulls it enough for me to get out of bed.
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! Just think about what I am saying before you talk to the doctor. I am just worried about the cycle you are getting into! All my best!
I forgot to mention, the amount of percocet, vicodin, and tylox (primarily percocet)I have been using on a daily basis. 6 years ago I was introduced to percocet (maybe it was vicodin...no matter, its all the same in one way or another)by a friend who had had a wisdom tooth pulled. I knew nothing about them before that night, though for some reason, I cant ever remember being happy before them....but I guess I was.
have been on oxycontine 40m 3x a day / hydrocodone 7.5 as needed for a long time, My dr. switched me to ms contine 30 mg 2x aday last mo pain has increased so has depression, yesterday she said she wanted to take away hydros and replace w/ a qquick release morphine she is also going to up the ms contine to 45 mg 2x aday (finally) question: are the quick release morhine going to help rescue me or at least take the edge off as well as the 7.5mg hydros? tired of being a guinea pig.
Since I have been dealing with this for over two months and rest is not helping, he wants to try these three things and if they don't work, consider lateral release surgery. The reason I am writing on this board is because I have researched this surgery and found that it does not always help and sometimes can make things worse and I am afraid of that. If the above treatment plan does not work, would you suggest lateral release as the last resort?
Oxycontin is a sow release oxycodone. Percocet is the short release or immediate release Oxycodone combined with Acetaminophen (Tylenol). The dosage changes you talk about doesn't make sense and that's why I think you may have your names confused. It's highly doubtful that a physician would give you eight pills of Oxycontin to take as needed. I do not take the other medications that you are prescribed. When I first began taking opiates they use to give me a tremendous headache.
I'm sure its the percocet but am alittle confused about the difference between Percocet and the oxycontin as they both have said....OXYCODONE... on the label is the oxy just a time release percocet?
I have 10 of the 5mg oxycontins (the time release) and I'm wondering if I take one of them a day, if it'll help the withdrawals.Think my body will even feel it? Take that fire sensation away? I get so scared and I already suffer from panic attacks, and take 1mg 3x's a day of Klonopin, on top of heart meds for atrial fibrillation.
The pain Doc. will probably place you on Oxy time release. A time release Oxy is good for 10-12 hours and has no other drug in it that might harm your liver. I am talking about Tylonal here; some Docs poopoo Tylonal and the liver. Well I have Hep C. At the Hep C clinic they steer away from Tylonal because it is very hard on the liver. Good luck. And hey don't feel bad about taking pain meds for pain and do not allow anybody to let you feel bad for taking them.
I ahve taken 10/325 percocet for years and recently my doctor has put me on fentanyl patches. She told me to try 1 25mg and if no help then apply 2 to total 50mg. I am wondering if I will suffer withdrawls from the change? Iknow it takes a while for the patches to get into your system, will I suffer w/d symptoms during this time?
All oxycontin is, is the percocet you take now in a time release formulation without the added acetaminophen. Your friends that smoked it, snorted it, chewed it, and injected it, did so to overcome the time release mechanism such that all of the medicine would be released at once versus over a 8 to 12 hour period. There are people out there that snort percocet too.
