Common Questions and Answers about Mixing percocet and oxycodone

percocet

Avatar f tn If you take too much acetaminophen it can damage you liver. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Vicodin is a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Additionally, both medications cause central nervous system depression which can make you drowsy, lower your blood pressure and have other adverse effects. I recommend that you speak to your doctor about which pain medication you should continue to take.
Avatar f tn I tried lyrica with opana and percocet and I dont know how I made it through the night other than the fact I slept sitting up as laying down kept on stopping my breathing. I never had the problem when I took mehtadone/klonopin/somas now I will never touch another anti seazier medicaition like lyrica and neurontin again. Everyone is differant so I say when taking any medication for the first time with other drugs its best to take half of what is perscribed.
Avatar f tn She felt like I wasn't trusting her and she was right. It just seemed like too many meds and I looked it up on the internet and that was the wrong thing to do. I am a worrier so reading about Heath really bothered me. I know if we are under a doctors care and let them know what meds we are on everything should be fine, but it's cases like his that make me truly wonder. Can anyone help me out with this?
Avatar n tn It was from a person who was snorting percocet and cocaine and had burnt a hole through the cartiliage in their nose and after months of not using it still hadn't healed and all the problems the person was having, she was a little freaked to say the least. No guarantee though but so far so good, I can only hope it continues. As far as her friend goes, and how many times she was successful before I caught her, I asked my daughter that same question that very night. No kidding huh.
Avatar f tn I am also prescribed percocet and I get 150 pills a month and I take it in addition to extended release morphine for chronic back pain. On average, I take 25 mg of percocet daily and up to 30 mg a day along with 60 mg of morphine per day. I have never had a morning after headache from the percocet. The maximum dose of acetaminophen that can be taken daily is 4,000 mg. So with 325 mg in each pill, you took well under the maximum dose.

Avatar n tn I was overwhelmed because i new i had only taken what was prescribed to me by him. i had one test before these last two and it was fine. i started taking oxycotin and percocet with my norco (vicodin) and all the sudden im positive for hydromorphone. im at a loss and dont know where to turn from here because i know i didnt take anything but the pills he prescribe.
216339 tn?1197058714 I know if i had the oxys in my hand i would abuse them i have abused oxy before and yes i did crush them so that is why i gave all my pills to my hubby and i told him no matter what i say do NOT give in . SO here it is about 830am and took one 10mg oxycodone ER and my hubby left for work so i have no pills here this is not easy it simply takes the edge off and helps my migranes.
Avatar n tn It’s also a legal definition of opiates + other illicit drugs that are not really narcotics, like LSD and Cannabis are classified legally (and incorrectly) as narcotics. percocet is oxycodone, oxycontin is time released oxycodone and comes in VERY strong doses, i believe it’s starts at 20mg and goes up to around or over 200mg. MS Contin is time released morphine (what the docs give me.) Good luck to all.
179856 tn?1333550962 If adopted by the Food and Drug Administration, the changes would lower the maximum over-the-counter Tylenol dose and would ban two narcotic painkillers, Vicodin and Percocet, which also contain acetaminophen. Yet another painkiller, propoxyphene, was the target of FDA action on Tuesday. Also sold as Darvon and in an acetaminophen combination called Darvocet, it has been linked to accidental overdoses and suicides.
Avatar f tn I've been taking subutex and xanax for about a year now. I was on percocet 30s and oxycontin 80mg but thought subutex was a good way for me to escape all the grief of withdrawing half the time. I take subutex in the morning and xanax at night usually. Then I started to mix them a little. Sometimes I felt really weird and not right plus was getting xanxious and worried. I've been to the hospital a couple times and thought I was dying.
Avatar m tn At one point i was taking 60mg oxycontin and 8 percocet (5/325) daily. I kicked oxycontin 1 year ago just by slowly tapering and i got off it! I would never wish oxycontin withdrawal upon my worse enemy. This Month (Sept 07) i have been depressed, started lexapro, while my percocet count is down to about 4 per day. I have been wanting to kick narcotics completely for some time.
Avatar m tn First was the OD on a mixture of pills, next I hadd him commited for mixing neurotin and xanex and morphin. He was out clean then went to his doctor and got morphine and hydrocodin and decided to walk the streets since Saturday until this morning when the cops called me. WHen i recieved a call i was told my husband had been jumped and his pills were stolen. He's in the hospital now, pills are gone, I told his doctor and cut off the supply. I am not looking for answers to tell me to leave him.
Avatar f tn there has been so many peole n my area overdosing and dying bc they r mixing methadone and benzos togeather. plus they r also mixing methadone and other drugs , like heroin , pain killers, etc,. they keep taking more of the pills bc they r not feeling the effect of the pills bc of the methadone blocking them and then they overdose b4 they know it. its very dangerous and i also hope ur not doing this.
Avatar f tn I've been on Percocet for 3 years and worked my way up from 5mg to 30 mg 4x per day. From the beginning I knew I didn't want to get hooked so I would give my self days off. ( I have back problems and recently had surgery which isn't healing as we hoped) the 30 mg oxycodone are near impossible to find but I did find a shady little pharmacy that had them last time I filled. I also took some suboxone before getting them filled.
Avatar n tn 00 and never felt it. I didn't want it to go to waste. hehe, damn !! Right? Well I finally felt it at 2:30, which is very long for me, I usually feel them in about 20 mins. Maybe it's because I have already taken 8 of them today? Whatta Ya Think? Should we all just get together and talk? You know with as much drug knowledge as we have, we probably could've been chemists, making our own ****.
Avatar m tn So the first night (Tuesday night) I took the new dose of Percocet (at 9pm) and my Klonopin and Trazadone (at 10pm) and went to sleep. Nothing strange occured or was reported. Last night, I took the new disage of Percocet all day (as prescribed). I took my last dosage at 8:45pm and then took my Klonopin at 10pm. I did not take my Trazadone because I was really, really tired already. And I am never tired! Anyway, I did feel a little shortness of breath before I fell asleep.
Avatar n tn My husband actually told me that he was a Vicodin user after his 2 back surgeries and that he was on the and Percocet for months, but he had to quit "cold turkey" and he did it. He was taking like 20 a day! So, why can't I quit! I told him that " I am not YOU...I am a GOD DAMN ADDICT". Hello!!! I think it's the fact that I can completely hold myself together, look good and take care of Emily that he feels that I don't have a problem.
464393 tn?1206758995 Also, remember that methadone is a potent pain killer and that mixing other opoids might increase the effects of side effects such as respitory depression, which can be life threatening. I would highly recommend consulting a pharmcist before taking tramadol with methadone. Above all the warnings I gave, IF you must use both together, make sure the tramadol is a very low dose (37-50 mgs) so that if you do get side effects or withdraw, they are minimized.
Avatar f tn 00 am I took an oxycodone. I hope it is not bad mixing the two different types. Once the post op surgery goes away I am sure things will go back to normal until it is time for the back surgery. And normal for me even with the constant daily back pain is 5 mg oxycodone 2-3 times a week. I am afraid to take them every day, even just at 5 mg a day....afraid that my body will then "need" them every day, or my mind will convince me that it does. Am I safe doing it this way...
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar m tn IS there any dryg that methadone doesnt block like this? I have heard of a new drug that contains percocet and oxycontin, but Ive never had them yet? Thanks for any help.
Avatar m tn That's exactly right,you feel like your od'ing ,but during the day it was happening too,when I took the morphine out of the mix the past few days it's been pretty much gone,but Ive had to take a lot of the percocet to keep up,and this has all been in like the past month or so.Ive always been on the same meds,but the same dose also that's why I thought maybe my body was telling me I wasn't getting enough anymore.I see the DR.
Avatar f tn Okay, so I was taking 80-120 mgs of oxycodone (Percocet) every day for the last year at least, may a year and a half. Five or six months ago, I discovered that i enjoyed mixing my already ridiculous opiate addiction with Xanax. Averaging 2-2.5 mgs like 3 or 4 times a week (on average, but I;m sure that at some point in there I took Xanax seven days in row). I I weaned off of the oxycodone in four days. I went seven days with no drugs.
Avatar m tn Abby---Sounds like you have an addictive personality from what you have said. Are you off the Xanax completely? If not, please be very careful mixing Xanax, Valium and Percocet, especially with the alcohol. While you may have a hefty tolerance built up...people DO still lose their loves over mixing various meds, ESPECIALLY with alcohol. My advice is to start being honest with yourself, and decide whether you are ready to ditch ALL of these pills and alcohol. If you are....
374225 tn?1269902862 You are the experts. I've quit Oxycodone 4 different times. Each time I got down to taking 6 a day and then just jumped off. The WD's were the pits but they only lasted about about 18 hours. If I ever have to quit the methadone how much harder than the oxycodone will it be? I used to take myself off the oxycodone on my own to get the drug out of my system so it would work better. I'd take 2 very painful weeks off then start again. So I can face those WD's and do fine.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar f tn Percocet has Oxycodone with Acetaminophen, Tylenol (3) has Acetaminophen with a half grain of Codeine.
Avatar n tn This may be a surprise but there are over 100,000 people each year killed by mixing inappropriate meds. Now, and especially in Mexico, I do my own research through some specialty sites. Even there I will not accept the findings of one site unless I can find similar results from others and I will look at none that do not have medical science backing them. I'm frankly very positive about this board. I usually do not find many accepting folks as I tend to be so bloody scientific about things.
Avatar m tn Actually getting a prescription for Soma is getting more harder everyday, lots of doctors will not prescribe it for any reason, so what that doctor did is not unheard of. I guess when mixing soma with prescription pain meds like hydrocodone and oxycodone gives the person a heroin like high...atleast thats what I've heard and been told by many doctors and nurses.
