Percocet with no acetaminophen

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet with no acetaminophen


Thank you Tuck, I was confusing aspirin with acetaminophen with the anti-inflammatory reference. In New Jersey you can still get Oxycodone IR at a 5 mg. dose. This does not contain any acetaminophen. I have a friend who was prescribed it earlier this year. I didn't realize that it existed either. The Hydrocodone that I was referring to that contains no acetaminophen was Hycodan.
Unless they started making them again, Dupont no longer makes percocet or percodan. Endo does. Endo also makes Endocet and Endodan, their generic versions. This happened in August of 1997 where Endo obtained certain branded and generic drugs from the then Dupont Merck company.
For me, the lack of sleep, and fatigue were the worst symptoms, and lasted the longest. What specific symptoms are you having? We can help with advice on how to help with that. For me, the key was trying to stay as active as possible, and getting myself outside for some fresh air. That really seemed to help. I hope you will stay around and keep posting. This is truly a great place for understanding, compassion, and support. We've all been through this in one way shape or form.
Your doctor may add a long acting opioid medication at some point to better control your pain by giving you consistent pain control over a 12 hour period (sometimes longer) versus dealing with the roller coaster effect of short acting opioids.
I have been taking percocet (oxycodone acetaminophen) 5/325 1 pill 3 times a day. That was a great system that worked for me. Recently I was prescribed oxycodone minus the acetaminophen. I understand the risks of liver damage. However, I have had NO relief since I began this new drug. I'm confused because it is the same drug minus the Tylenol. Anyone else experiencing this? Would taking a higher dose of the oxycodone (not Percocet which is oxy with acetaminophen) help me better?
Hello Clsmith, Oxycodone 5mg is not stronger than Oxycodone 10mg with acetaminophen. The acetaminophen has nothing to do with the strength of the oxycodone. However as suggested above it may be that her physician is concerned about the long term effects of acetaminophen. The mind is powerful. I believe in being truthful with ppl especially when it comes to their health care. I wouldn't encourage you to lie to her but if she doesn't ask you're not being untruthful. And Peek...
If anything I need to get my meds lowered or get the doctor to write the Percocet without acetaminophen. They do have Percs without acetaminophen. Being an ex heroin user, I know I am addicted to the pain meds and it will be a fight to get off them but I am determined to do so once I can get my back in better shape. Like I said I am just worried that the Percocet I take now is damaging my liver.
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.
The drugs most affected by this action are opioid pain relievers that are combined with acetaminophen like codeine (Tylenol #3), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab) and oxycodone (Percocet). “FDA is taking this action to make prescription combination pain medications containing acetaminophen safer for patients to use,” said Sandra Kweder, M.D., deputy director of the Office of New Drugs in FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
I was on narco for 4 years then as my pain was worse, my pain specialist started Started me on endocet 10mg. ( oxycodone 10mg with acetaminophen 325mg.) Percocet is oxycodone 5 mg with acetaminophen 325mg) I started the endocet by taking 1/2 tablet to 1tablet 4 times a day,, I found the oxycodone to be better for me than the norco. My pain specialist does not like having to adjust methadone doses..... I have been on endocet 10mg for 7 years..and with the same pain specialist for 13 yrs..
I am a long-term migraine sufferer and have been taking pain killers now for about two years (hydrocodone 5/500). A lot of the time I will take 1500 mgs of acetaminophen in one dose. Does anyone know if this will be detrimental to my liver? I never EVER exceed the 4000mg limit in 24 hours, but I will often take 6 pills in one day, that is 1500 mgs of acetaminophen, then 1500 mgs again twelve hours later if necessary. I am very strict about the time in between each dose.
For 13 years I have used a durogesic patch and percocet together with lower to stronger strengths at the present. For 8 years I have used a durogesic 75mcg patch changing it every 48 hrs.- due to BREAK THROUGH PAIN. Along with the patch I use Percocet 7.5/325 mg 4 tablets a day. Plus, through the years I have changed other medications but at the present I also use: Neurontin 300mg 3 capsules 4 times a day Flexeril 10 mg as needed (up to 3 per day) Valium 5mg q 6 hrs.
A Food and Drug Administration panel on Tuesday voted 20-17 that prescription drugs that combine acetaminophen with other painkilling ingredients should be pulled off the market. The FDA has assembled a group of experts to vote on ways to reduce liver damage associated with acetaminophen, one of the most widely used drugs in the U.S. Here is the link to the complete article....... http://www.msnbc.msn.
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 am in the same boat you are in, as soooo many of us are. I have been on pain management for 10years as well. I am concerned about the amount of tylenol in the Percocet (I take the 10's 4 to 6 times a day) and have tried and tried to discuss this with my PM doc, who is soon to be replaced.
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.
But why would you take the xanax. usually when you hit 48 hours with no Percocet is when the worse of the withdraws seem to happen. You could then use the xanax to help with the discomfort at NIGHT. I may be wrong but with such a low dose of perc you may not feel all that bad. The shakes in the evening, I'm not sure what that could be but maybe you are having a bit of anxiety jsut thinking about stoping the pills. You could take 1 one xanax before bed and see if that helps you at all.
^^ It's not the only safe one... Hydrocodone, Tylenol with codeine and Tramadol are safer to take then Percocet because they aren't as strong. But Percocet isn't bad to take. Narcotics don't get to babies the way people think it does!!
Percs are oxycodone and acetaminophen , not hydrocodone. How many you taking of what popeye? and for how long?
6 yrs ago I was un a bad car accident and was diagnosed with an incurable disease called rsd I have had several procedured done to help with the chronic pain all only temporarly, I was blessed with this pregnancy and finding out it was a girl was even more of a blessing but due to the pain i am on 30mg percocet the dr's are aware and perscribe it to me i have cried to my ob asking what else i can do becuase i feel bad for the baby i feel like I get looked at with no respect and get an additude
Let's get free of this pact we've made with our demon. Let's get to a point where we no longer need this crap to get on with life. There is a price to pay, to be sure, but I know it's so worth it. I hope my story didn't seem convoluted, but it just reminded me of that for whatever reason. Good luck to you friend! I will be looking forward to hearing about your success.
regular monitoring by your doctor required or alternate medication may be needed Significant: Potential for significant interaction (monitoring by your doctor is likely required) Minor: Interaction is unlikely, minor, or nonsignificant Here's the results for the meds you're asking about: ZOLOFT AND VICODIN: Significant - Monitor Closely.
It is combined in many prescription products with other ingredients, usually opioids such as codeine (Tylenol with Codeine), oxycodone (Percocet), and hydrocodone (Vicodin). OTC acetaminophen products are not affected by today's action. “FDA is taking this action to make prescription combination pain medications containing acetaminophen safer for patients to use,” said Sandra Kweder, M.D., deputy director of the Office of New Drugs in FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
Lastly, the one thing you do want to be careful with is mixing alcohol with the percocet as the acetaminophen combined with alcohol can cause severe liver problems and even liver failure if the two are mixed on a regular basis. I hope your headache gets better soon.
Right now I am taking a low dose of Methadone three times a day with 2 oxycodone 30mg for breakthrough pain (as I need it but no more often than every 4 hours). It controls my pain wonderfully.
If you start percocet now it may be hard to wean yourself from it later when you really need it. Percocet is basically tylenol with codeine...maybe you can try just some plain tylenol if it is OK with your OB.
I know that neither is good to have, but in having both...will the percocet abuse expedite any chances of liver damage? If so, what are the best liver cleansing procedures. Especially considering I stop taking the pills?
Could anyone please help with percocet withdrawal? I've perscribed percocet (5/325 2x-4x daily) for a back injury (herniated discs) less than 2 months ago. I've tried to take it on a need basis, to avoide addiction, which means I average on 2 pills a day and only sometimes 3 a day, but lately I've started noticing that that 3-4 hours after I take a pill I start getting flu like symptoms and dizziness to the point where I'm afraid I'm going to faint.
I have an app set up with my doctor in two weeks and I plan on telling her everything. I also did some research on this and was petrified with some of the results. I do not want to harm my baby, I only want what is best for him/her. If anyone can give me some advice as to what I should do it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not judge me, I want to get off these badly but don't know what is the safest way.
