1161075 tn?1262992028 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.
Avatar n tn You can get addicted to ANY Narcotic out there, from Vicodin to Percocet to Fentanyl....doesn't matter which one. And ALL will cause w/d if you use them to "get high" and then stop suddenly. It's not just the "Big Dogs" everyone.... Your body will develope a "TOLERANCE" to any Narcotic also.......and a Pain Dr. knows that and can w/d you safely and with no w/d symptoms if you need to be taken off anything.
Avatar n tn Well, my mouth still feels raw, and am getting more little blisters, and I think it may be a reaction from the Percocet. Bob, I know you are gonna make it, and my heart will be with you. I know it won't be an easy thing to do, but you will make it because you want to. I am trying to find a site on aol, that use to be here, ask a dr or something like that. Do you know what I'm referring to? Have a great holiday yourself, if I don't hear from you before.
Avatar m tn I have rotated off some heavy duty meds and this one takes the cake and the whole bakery as far as physical detox goes, wow terrible. I don't have the luxury of trying some new "self proclaimed supposed to be effective" medicine. I need something that works. Does that mean that percocet is my only option? I know it works well, but can anyone suggest some equivalent options? Any idea is welcome. Thank you so much.
Avatar f tn It started out I was making it every month then after each surgery it got worse and worse and I used more and more! It went from making it to two weeks and now I am making it a single week on 90. I really need something for pain or I can't walk. I need to know how to make it possible to make my pills last the whole 30 days again, and if it is possible. Before my accident I had never taken any kind of pain meds.
Avatar f tn You'll have some aches and pains so get some plain paracetamol and ibuprofen to take as needed. Get some travel sickness tablets to combat nausea, but only take them if your nauseated (if you take too many they'll make you twitch!). Get some imodium for diarrhoea too. Various natural remedies will help you through this.
955456 tn?1316230779 I'm having a really hard time right now, I did really good all day, and then poof all of a sudden the percocet monster attacked me. I am going absolutely crazy and I just feel like I'm the worst... I don't know how I got here, and I don't want to be here. But I know that I'm feeling this way for a reason, and that to stop feeling this way I have to stop taking this drug. I am trying to keep the goal in mind... but I feel so bad :( I can understand everything they say about addiction now...
Avatar n tn I had hernia surgery and was prescribed percocet 10mg.. It been 2 months and have stopped them but feeling really depressed and anxious. How long will this take to subside??? I usually half the 10mg and take half at a time. at most take 5 halfs a day..???
Avatar f tn I've been taking percocet every 4 hours and the 600 mg ibuprofen every 6 hours. I'm still having pain but I am feeling better as time goes on. So my question is...what should i do as far as the pain meds go? I don't want to be taking more than whats necessary, but I don't think that I'm ready to stop all together. Is it best to ease out of the percs?
Avatar m tn Now that my pain has lessened, I only take it at night because it makes me fall asleep almost instantly. Physical therapy is painful and ibuprofen doesn't help much, but I dont want to take percocets during the day so my dr gave me a prescription for 50mg tramadol, which I have never used before. I anticipate only using it 2 or 3 times per week after my physical therapy. How can I safely combine the two?
Avatar n tn Oh, by the way, you can take ibuprofen along with the percocet even though the percocet already has tylenol in it, because ibuprofen and acetominophen are able to be taken together. Just don't take more tylenol along with it, because that will be too much tylenol and it could damage your liver.
Avatar f tn Ibuprofen and such tends to give me stomach pain and I've been On ibuprofen for years. Heat helps but just for the 30 sex or so the heat is applied. Other than that nothing.
Avatar f tn Is it safe to take 800mg ibuprofen & 650mg Percocet (each pill 325mg) together at once?
1158557 tn?1262729529 I'm not sure if this is related to my withdrawal, or if it's something I should have checked out. I'm on day 8 coming off of Percocet 10mg and Vicoprofen. If this is the withdrawal how long does this usually last?
Avatar n tn For what it's worth, I am on an insulin pump and have great control (I avg. 5.8 A1C's). The only additional drugs I take are either Tylenol or Ibuprofen, again if needed and maybe every 4-6 hours or so, never at the same time unless they are at least 2-3 hrs apart. I am accustomed to thinking 90-120 is "norma" and 180 is pretty "high" for me.
Avatar n tn Both T3s and percocet have acetaminophen in them, so keep track of your cumulative total. The wine is going to be harder on your liver than either the codeine or the oxycodone.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa. For me, percocet works a lot better for my pain. Hydrocodone does not come without acetaminophen...yet. There is a drug in development called, Zohydro that would be a long-acting form of hydrocodone without acetaminophen. Clinical trials are underway but the drug won't be on the consumer market until probably early 2014.
Avatar n tn i cannot tell him, my babies father does not even know i was doing this we were split up at the time, back together now, but, he knows nothing. no one does and i would like to keep it that way as selfish as that sounds! will the baby go thru withdrawl? i cant imagine he will, its been awhile and i know it is out of my system........i just want him to be healthy!
Avatar f tn injections, alternating heat and ice, pain meds, and rotating ibuprofen with Tylenol, and the Voltaren gel or a compounded gel. Basically it's trying to piece together a bunch of things to get some relief. One thing that might help with your feet, albeit just a little, is to roll your foot on a tennis ball. I'm not sure if it really helps but it doesn't hurt. You've found a great website here for support. It has a lot of very knowledgeable, empathetic people on it.
Avatar f tn Besides needing support, I'm wondering how do I manage my pain after this? Ibuprofen stopped helping me a long time ago. And my husband has chronic pain due to a pinched nerve from a hernia operation so he gets meds from his Dr for that. How do I quit and stay strong enough to not beg him for one a week from now? I already told him to not give me any no matter how bad I'm hurting but I'm not sure he would really say no. I just want my old self back. The happy care free me.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
1794671 tn?1338798991 Norco is simply hydrocodone and acetaminophen. There is hydrocodone and aspirin. There is hydrocodone and ibuprofen. The latter two can irritate your stomach over the long term but this complication can be addressed without a liver transplant. Additionally if you damage your liver slightly versus severly damaging it, you could potentially have issues with pain control as you won't have a choice but to stop taking the Norco.
Avatar f tn One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.Now another told me that Diagnostic were that he note Facet Arthrosis in the lower spine -L4-L5 and L5-SI and mild facet hypertrophy.But no significant disc bulge or protrusion is seen at any level. Disc space are well maintained. Now after my baby was born 2 month she came down with Baterial Meningitis after I stop breastfeeding expain that to me.
Avatar m tn (Though it turned out all I needed was ice and ibuprofen.) I do hope this doesn't turn into a problem and that your PCP will iron things out.
Avatar f tn my dr says that a small percentage of people test negative for certain opiates because of a enzyme in their body. i have even taken percocet in front of him and waited 3 hrs and then did a urine test and still tested negative for percocet. thank god i have a good dr[not a pain management dr but regular primary dr] and thank god he didnt turn his back on me but went the extra mile to find out what would cause me to test negative instead of positive.
Avatar f tn Sorry to hear this and like you i was taking hydrocodone for close to 2 years and then had back surgery and started taking percocet up to 16 a day and finally i said enough it is time to quit i am only 24 years old and have way to much ahead to keep this up but as for the w/ds it depends on how long they will last for me it was usually about 5 or 6 days as of right now i am on day 7 with no meds because this is not my first time but there are vitamins you can take that will help with the withdra
Avatar n tn They gave me percocet. They sent me home with percocet and naproxen. I haven't used them. Only mild cramping but here almost 3 weeks later and I started a light period. BUMMER. they don't me it may not work.
