Percocet and seizures

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and seizures


Avatar n tn Hey mike, i don't have a fricken clue; i just ate them for ten years; and all my buds that still take em, get and prefer the "Dupont Percocet" brand. Actually, tomatoe and tomahto doesn't really apply anyways..........when was the last time you grabbed a bottle of Hunts(or any other) over Heinz ketchup??
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 m tn If you use to much for to long, you'll get hooked on that and you cannot, under any circumstances go cold turkey with a benzo due to seizures and death. So if you use the xanax, use it spareingly and not for a long time, a week to 10 days. Be careful with that stuff, it can be a nightmare.
Avatar f tn This is a benzo and should be tappered from very slowly, due to the possiblity of seizures and stroke. How long have you been on the xanax? As far as the other stuff, look into the Health pages for the Thomas receipe, that will help alittle. There is no magic cure for withdrawels except time. Please respond back about the xanax. Going cold turkey from this can be extremely dangerous.
Avatar f tn including fetal seizures which could alter brain chemistry and future function. Be honest about your use and let the doctor help you taper off. I think it's the safest and best way to deal with the situation.
Avatar n tn A week later I started getting hullucinations at night and had the Dr switch the Vicodin and got Percocet. The hullucination didn't stop and I ended up finding out that it was caused by Flexeril after searching the web. That flexeril should be avoid at all costs and it has a long 3 day half life so its going to take a long time to finally get out of me... So switched to Robaxin for the muscle relaxer. At this time I got up to 10-12 Percocets a day because of the pain.

Avatar f tn I am 23 and have been suffering from intense migraines for about 12 years. Seizuresfor about 3 years, but this isn't about the seizures.
626605 tn?1302524071 Hello everyone I just wanted to let let everyne know I had a very serious seizure about 2 weeks ago the doctors have no clue where it came from but I stopped taking Percs and they gave me Trams and then I stopped those and then had the seizure so In my honest opinion that is what is was from but we are still doing test so I'll keep you posted but once again be very careful when taking tramadol and I was only taking 2-4 per day.
Avatar f tn I lost track of how many I have been taking, a lot I also actually got started on Percocet and lortab and moved on to tramadol because it was easier to get. I have zanax too but I only use it if I am having a really bad w/draw from the trammy. I only get 8 pills a month so I have to use them wisely. Lately I worry about my heart stopping, a seizure, and liver failure. My brother died last year of drinking, all his organs failed. I also had another brother who died of drinking and pills.
Avatar n tn I have been taking tramadol and percocet for about 5 years now, 240 tramadol a month and 90 percocet a month.originally given for a back condition,but mostly used to feel good.Taking these pills is great,I can work harder,get along better with people and generally feel much better when Im on them.I typically go thru the all the tramadols in about 7-10 days and the percocets last about 5-7 days.
Avatar n tn My doctor just gave me Percocet and said it was safe but I am scared to death to take it. I have a 2 1/2 year old and it is hard to take care of her with these headaches..I need some relief but is this medicine going to hurt my baby? Should I take it or suffer? I don't know what to do. Any suggestions please let me know!!!
Avatar n tn The problem is that you take it for a day or two to help your W/D, and then stop it. This medication, when abruptly stopped COULD cause seizures. So you need to be extremely careful. I would not recommend taking it for other things that it is not intended for. Sorry, I know it's tempting to take, but for your health, please don't.
Avatar f tn could have such a demon in their closet) yet I am scared to death about seizures, etc. I have about 7 mgs left for tomorrow and that is it. Just typing that right now just gave me such a feeling of anxiety. Please help.
Avatar f tn Both my OB and Pain management are aware of me on percocet and I have been very open about it. I am so upset and so depressed about what I am doing to our innocent baby. Please anyone who has any advice, experience, stories, results, I would like to hear it all. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I had 3 surgeries a titanium rod that goes from my knee to my ankle and a staple and titanium cage in my spine now. I have screws in my knee ankle and spine. I started out taking Morphine 30 mg 3 times a day, percocet 10/325 3 times a day and Valium 10 mg, After being on all that for 2 years the insurance company got a doctor to say I didn't need any pain medication and now they wont pay for any type of pain pill.
Avatar f tn Every time I try to get off these sukers, my body feels like it's on fire and the cravings are absolutely horrible. The fire feeling is pretty scary and I'm wondering if I can get seizures during these withdrawals. I was on my 7th day the other week and I blew it. I couldn't stand the "fire" pain anymore, so I went to a friend for "help".
Avatar n tn cut down by quarters at the last mg of ativan and within a month or two at most you will have successfully tapered off of both percocet and ativan and you can start healing your brain and body from the damaging addiction.
Avatar f tn but you might not even make it until 40 weeks and the baby will prob be born and go through wd. i read a story here and a women was on 3 5mgs percocet a day for 3 weeks stopped cause she thought it was a low dose n went in to labor 2 days later.. but she was only a week or 3 away from her due date so tech she was full term.
12953 tn?1270757997 Right now I take on percocet pill I think it's 10/650 mg (yeah I know it is)before bed and it helps me to sleep and relieves my pain til the next night. So that's it. Again thank you for your responses and if anyone has anything else to add I will appreciate that also. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
650963 tn?1446002663 percocet, imtrex, ibprofen, promethizne, depo, adivan for sezuires,midrin and ambein. The doctors have not come to a conclusion with why this is happening, some doctors have even refused to take my case because of how severe it is. I do not know what to do. I am in America, so it costs for medical treatment. Is there anything anyone suggests regarding any of this?
Avatar f tn Please know that if you stop cold turkey and go in to wd's, your baby will experience everything you feel with possible fetal seizures. The stress of fetal withdrawal is part of what causes premature labor and delivery. Be careful there and best of luck.
Avatar m tn in the mean time they have been putting me on hydromorphone and given me percocet to off set the pain. It has been so bad that I can not eat half the time and my chest hurts so bad it feels like a heart attack and I start to panic and freak out. Needless to say, its been 3 weeks and I've been given over 75 percocet and have taken my last one today. now I am worried that something will affect my unborn child and make him sick.. what do you recommend I do? I'm just scared.
Avatar f tn I've been taking about 15mg a day for a month and a half and give birth in 3 weeks and was seeing if that is low enough dose for baby to not be addicted
1973988 tn?1325985488 Normally you won't have seizures weening off of percocet but it can be possible with xanax if not tapered properly. It's good you are under the care of a doctor while doing all of this as it's always safer. Make sure you are careful with the xanax since you were once addicted to it. It's all too easy for it to get out of control again and also easy to swap one substance for another. Be sure to stick around the forum. There are some wonderful people here who will give you the support you need.
Avatar n tn Ok ive been taking vicodin and percocet for disc herniation and sciatica and arthritis im 28 wks along I.took vicodin in my last pregnancy but never percocet, for some.reason im more concerned now...
Avatar n tn I am sitting in a bed right now due to acl reconstruction. I am on day3 it's 4 in the morning... and I just took two percocet and 1 toridol...or something like that. My mom is a nurse so I just do what she says.... I always find myself asking her..."I am not going to die am I" and she always says n o...and here I am she is pretty trustworthy... the first day all I took was percocet and it didn't do anything. I stayed for 23 hour pbservation and was writhing in pain.
Avatar f tn Hi there. I've been on and off this rollercoaster for years. My chronic pain issues started with severe migraines in .mt teens which led to codeine dependence. I then started having grand mal seizures, not from the drugs, but from a previously undiagnoed neurological condition. I was eventually detoxed at migraine clinic and got my meds down to one anticovulsent.
Avatar m tn I am on 2000mg of keppra a day, 800 of carbamazepine, and 4 percocet 5/325 mg APAP, nexium, 75 mg of antivert daily. I read that the carbamazepine, percocet and keppra are all bad for your liver, especially together. I need to stay on the two seizure medications but I would like to think there is a way to switch the pain medication. The acetaminophen is what i would like to change, would that make that much of a difference? If so, what should i do , and how?
