Avatar f tn t cut it for you then the next time that you can take some meds take the percocet. By the third day I barely needed the advil anymore. I hope it starts to feel better for you soon! Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Finally, a rule of thumb is to NEVER take OTC products that contain Tylenol while taking Vicodin or Percocet as you are ADDING in more tylenol that needs to totaled and added to the amount consumed through the Vicodin or Percocet. It is important to read the labels on OTC cold and cough medicines to understand how much Acetaminophen (or Tylenol) is in the product.
Avatar n tn yes, percocet is a class 2 narcotic and vicodin is a class 3. Percocet is an oxycodone with tylenol, and vicodin is a hydrocodone with tylenol. If ever you need a refill you can't have a doctor call in a class 2. Both are addictive equally...
Avatar f tn s the more you take the stronger the drug the worse it is. If you did not take equal to what you were taking prior then you were in light wd more then likely. just think if you quit you would not have these worries. take care of yourself ok..
Avatar f tn Percocet is one step ABOVE Vicodin on the painkiller strength scale. Ever hear people talk about oxy? Percocet is Oxycodone. If you had a problem with vicodin, percocet will just be a bigger problem. Id stay away. Good luck and congrats on all that clean time.. Keep going in the right direction. God bless.
Avatar f tn Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Lortab and percocet are some of the painkillers that are sometimes prescribed during pregnancy. However its best to avoid ANY medication in the first trimester when the baby is still developing. If you find out you are pregnant it would be best to stop taking the painkillers alltogether. At this point it's probably best to continue to use protection until you are free of the pain meds and your doctor has given you the official go ahead.
Avatar f tn Hey, good for you if they aren't that bad. I mean, I honestly do not believe that anyone can just by-pass w.d, but maybe you are. I don't know. Like mimi said, take the vitamins, well..hey..you are almost 2 full days in..so more power to ya...I wish that happened to me.. Good luck and great job..
Avatar n tn I am not good at keeping track b/c the scripts are only for 15 days while most are for a month, but anyway. I have some 5mg vicodin - can I take those to get me through until I can fill the script for the Percocet? If so, how much should I take? I realize this is a rather more conservative question than some, but I had one bad experience a couple of months ago when I ran out and I didn't take anything. I don't want to go through that again.
Avatar n tn Hey there.....I don't know about percocet but I took tramadol with vicodin before. I take tramadol and my script was running out before I could get it refilled so I took the vicodin to help make what tramadol I had left, last. So, medically I think it wouldn't hurt anything to take them. You just have to be very careful with tramadol! I am in the process of trying to ween off of it and my dr.
Avatar n tn It did take a while to work. I would say at least 4 weeks. The pain relief was minamal. Good luck to you.
890900 tn?1284577303 ADELPHI, Md. - Government experts say prescription drugs like Vicodin and Percocet that combine a popular painkiller with stronger narcotics should be eliminated because of their role in deadly overdoses. 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.

599170 tn?1300973893 You're about right with the meds and their strengths. I had a cervical discectomy with fusion and really didn't need pain meds beyond about the third day post surgery. My problems started about 7 months after the surgery when it became apparent that I had developed adhesive arachnoiditis as a result of the nerves in my spine reacting badly to the dye in the myelogram before the surgery. Had I not had the myelogram, I would no longer have needed pain meds after the surgery.
Avatar f tn I would go with the oxycodone (percocet) over the hydrocodone (vicodin), because it's possible to get the oxycodone in it's pure form in a pill without the tylenol in it. The -cet suffix on the percocet is what denotes the acetominophen or Tylenol. In the generic form, it would give the mg strength of the pill (ie, 5/500) and then say APAP on the label.
Avatar m tn Me again ! The thomas receipe can help with the withdrawels. Click on my name and look in my journel for it.
Avatar f tn a day. Did you take JUST the acetaminophen, or was it in a pill that also contained an opiate---like Vicodin or Percocet? 4500 mgs of acetaminophen will put a strain on the liver. If you drank any alcohol, you could be in serious trouble (never, EVER take acetaminophen with booze, or for a hangover.) Why did you take so much of it? Just curious. We aren't doctors, and we don't know anything about you, so the standard answer you're going to get is: see a doctor.
Avatar f tn I took clonidine which is a blood pressure medication, but used for withdrawal symptoms, it helped a lot, and I took benadryl at night to sleep, because you will be wide awake. Also if you can get some food in your stomach and can take a Super B Vitamin complex, that helps with energy, and just makes you feel better. I'm at Day 21 today, my physical withdrawals were gone by Day 6 ish.. I still had chills every great once in awhile, and sneezed a lot, but nothing bad.
Avatar n tn most pain meds are in the vicodin family...so odds are, if you cant take one..you wont be able to take any of the others.
Avatar m tn can i fill a prescription for percocet 9/29 even though ifilled a prescrition for vicodin on 9/27?
1279189 tn?1275244868 or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin. Vicodin is an immediate-release medication, which is why that reaction happens with most opiate-naive people. The objective with fentanyl and other long-acting medications is to give you long-lasting relief without either pain spikes or "buzz" spikes. Give yourself a couple weeks on the fentanyl and see how you do.
