Common Questions and Answers about Percocet vs ultracet

percocet

They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
As abby said , No there are not the same. Very much alike as far as the high you get but MS contin is Morphine sulfate and Oxy is percocet. The Ms contin is stronger and lasts longer (given to a lot of cancer patients etc) and the Oxycontin is not as strong and is mostly given to people fir broken bones, chronic pain, etc. Hope this helped.
use it proactively, don't wait until you're really hurting. Take it on a time basis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. a need basis if the doctor says to, use adjuvant medications (try non-narcotic first, different drugs normally used for different purposes that seem to help chronic pain and give relief) and leave alcohol and other drugs alone. Also in the tool box are physical, mental, pleasure, work, communication, social and emotional things to use. Pain is a very weird thing.
He thinks its better to be on Tramadol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span>. vicodent. The orthropeadic surgeon says I am NOT to get any steriod or any other injections into the shoulder, as pain is originating from my neck. Its really impossible to sleep on my back or left side, which leaves the right side and I continually wake up and feel like a knife is stuck between my chest and shoulder blades. I really don't know where to go from here. I do see the pain magagement doc next week, but that really doesn't give me answers.
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2000 and since then, my neurologist has been giving me an almost unlimited supply of Hydrocodone for my "headaches". Up until this past year, it wasnt so bad. I could have a bottle of Hydrocodone - 10/325 mg. and i could make it last me almost a month. I never really considered myself an addict because I could stop taking them at any time and I wouldnt withdraw. This past year has been different.
it is a mind thing...at 100 mgs of hydro as my basic leaving the scene dose//and even tho 2 yrs with natural <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span> narcotic pai relief...if i tried to control my pain with a prescribed dose of hydro///i would know within a week that my tolerence will jot let it work//maybe for a few days but tolerence never leaves due to the extra receptors we build during abuse....a prescribed dose of trams??? 200 mgs a day???
/The other important issue here is the fact that there is nothing wrong with using Ultram or opiates (codeine, Vicodin, Percocet, etc.) if you have a chronic pain problem and are not abusing your medications by taking more than is prescribed, getting it from more than one doctor, etc. Chronic pain patients sometimes do become physically addicted to their medicines. This will happen even if you take the prescribed amount for a long enough time on a daily basis.
This is prewritten for anyone who is beginning, or planning on beginning, a cold turkey withdrawal to opiates. This includes drugs such as tramadol (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultracet</span> and Ultram) codeine (Tylenol #3, #4), Darvocet, Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab and derivatives), Oxycodone (Endocet, Percocet, Oxycontin), Morphine, Demerol. Fentanyl, and Dilaudud. There are many other opiates not listed, so if you don’t see it listed, you can still use these suggestions if it’s an opiate based addiction.
The ultram was just ok for pain, i often would try to stop taking the vikes and just the ultram was fine untill i ran out of ultram then the **** would hit the fan as far as withdrawls. I did have a question , my dr. switched the ultram to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultracet</span> because he said it was less addictive. Do you have any information about this drug and it's difference from ultram.
my experence with ultram and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultracet</span> is that it was a good drug to take when i ran out of vikes or percs, ulrram took away the with drawls from the percs and vikes. i was told they were non narcotic. the one thing good about them for me was i never got any kind of buzz or high from them like i did from vike's. so they were easier to get off of for me.
the one that worked the best, got rid of the symptoms almost completely..was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ultracet</span>, which is related to Ultram..it is the mildest of the opiates, and it is non-scheduled. It really has worked to get off vicodin..if any one asks..that is a good alternative...and may work for percocet or other drugs as well.
Obviously I am past all conservative treatment such as physical therapy, injections, and decompression. Currently on a regimen of lyrica, celebrex, zanaflex and percocet to control nerve pain. I'm wondering if there is anyone who has already had a fusion and then done the disc replacement as well. If so, what were the results?
Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............
