Percocet withdrawal oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet withdrawal oxycodone


Avatar f tn Try a local Urgent/Insta Care/Doc in a box or an ER and see if they'll prescribe oxycodone(percocet) or hydrocodone(vicodin, lortab) - if not, ask about tramadol - since it's not controlled, most docs don't have a problem prescribing it. Bring your records - and go during business hours so they can call your old doctor. Finally, If the local ER won't help you, and you can't get into a doctor quickly - you could try to purchase Tramadol from an online source.

The doctor gave me 120 tabs and today or after todayb I will be out and Im very worried about the withdrawals,if I will have a big one or somewhat small since i was only on them since the 28th of september until now only difference that worries me is i was taking the Norco from the 24th and they didnt last but 2 to 4 days and i saved 2-3 for my doctor visit at a pain clinic.
Avatar m tn Cocaine withdrawal is merely psychological, where as, Opiate withdrawal is physical. Instead of reverting to smoking pot or taking another substance like Lyrica, I would suggest looking into vitamin, herbal and over the counter remedies to help you get by the first few days. Magnesium and Potassium both aid in neuromuscular communication, which will help your body alleviate your pain symptoms. Also, get yourself sone icy hot patches and take hot baths.
Avatar n tn hey people there has been a question/problem i'ld like some input on. can oxycodone cause loss of shortr term memory? i seem to be having problems remembering things in the recent (several months) that have happened to me or have been said to me. anyone else notice this?
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Percocet and I received the generic brand Oxycodone W/APAP 5/325 Two weeks later i had a kidney stone and was prescribed Percocet again. This time the generic name was Endocet 7.5/500 Why was it Oxycodone one time and Endocet the next time.
2110255 tn?1334192149 Some additional medication may be prescribed to help with the withdrawal symptoms. Percocet also causes tolerance meaning that over time the same dose may not work as well for your pain and you may need to ask your doctor for new prescribing instructions to take a slightly larger amount to yield the same amount of pain relief you experienced in the beginning.
Avatar m tn Hi there and welcome to the forum. I'm sorry it took so long for someone to reply. It can be slow around here on weekends. Hang in there as I'm sure others will also weigh in. You have been on a fairly high dose of Percs for a long time. You managed to do a very quick taper. I would say that you are still going to experience a few days at least of withdrawal symptoms. The "worst" may not be over. Have you ever gone through this before?
Avatar n tn percocet 10/325, oxycodone extended release 20 mg. I started taking more and noticed that if i just take a lot every day, I don't ever get a migraine, at all. So I'd say I'm taking btween 80-100 mg. total a day. Last week I tried to stop, because I am getting close to my due date and don't want to have a baby born addicted. Well the withdrawals were awful.
Avatar m tn It all started with 10 mg percocet and has gradually escalated to about 120-180 mg of oxycodone per day. I have quit taking percocet at will in the past, cold turkey multiple times in the past. My fiance left me in February of this year (probably the right decision on her part). But when she left i had been about a week sober from all drugs thanks to her support. Ever since then Ive been in a downward spiral trying to numb my pain with pain killers.
Avatar f tn Jean, I am glad you are trying to get off the Percocet. I believe the highest dose available in US is 10mg of oxycodone/ 650mg acetaminophen. Thus, not only are you taking a lot of narcotics, you are also overdosing on Tylenol that can actually damage your liver. The best way for you to proceed is to slowly taper the dose, never taking above the recommended amount. Wright out a table for yourself, i.e.
Avatar f tn I'm 13 weeks pregnant I'm been on 10/325mg percocet and oxycodone 15 mg and I lost count how many I take all I know is a month supply can only last 2 weeks I have asked doctors for help to taper or to stop but I can't do it I keep reading about suboxone what is that and can I ask my doctor for it the withdrawal is very bad I pooped on myself in my sleep today and it hard I have three kids to tend to and at night my arm and legs are so restless they hurt I'm scared really scared I've quit drinkin
Avatar n tn It is as addicting or more so than the percs, and the benzo withdrawal makes percocet withdrawal seem like a walk in the park. 2) The shakes are normal, as is Restless Leg Syndrome. Both should resolve or at least get much better by the second week. The Xanax will help some..again just be very careful. 3) Percocet contains Oxycodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol as a brand name). two Percocet a day is well below the 4,0000 or so milligram suggested ceiling for it. Your liver should be fine.
Avatar n tn And alternative therapies are a good thing to also look into. Take percocet for norco withdrawal is like drinking gin for vodka withdrawal. NOT a good idea!! Good luck to you - and hang in there. Time is your very best friend right now.
Avatar m tn The Fentenyl, BTW, was Rx'd to replace Oxycontin which was being stolen by a family member, and Oxycodone IR has no Percocet. I can't take Aspirin or NSAIDS due to my Crohn' s. The Oxy is supposed to be for breakthrough pain, but I take it on a schedule to it stay ahead of the pain. Sort of. I also take Cymbalta and Celebrex to help with the pain. All prescribed. I've tried hard not to abuse them, but sometimes I TAKE a little extra extra o shorten the interval. So. That's it.
Avatar m tn I have endured the typical withdrawal symptoms - shivers, sweating, anxiety, tingling, and depression - as reported by many others. But I could not find good comments for other oxycodone withdrawal questions with this typical profile since many of the commenters have admitted to extensive oxycodone use in the past. My question: what's ahead for me? Am I over the bad part, or is there a lot more bad stuff to come? How long does the withdrawal effects last? Physically? Mentally?
1794671 tn?1338798991 I was hoping to do it around 7 months so if anything happens the baby will have a chance of survival, seeing as how withdrawal has a high chance of preterm labor. Well with my wonderful Kaiser (not good) doctor, the one that prescribes me ALL my diabetic supplies and pain management prescriptions, informed me that there is a lapse in my insurance and she won't be giving me anymore medication.
Avatar n tn Now she is 7 months pregnant and is worried about her baby going through withdrawal when she is born. Does anyone have experience with pregancy and Oxycodone?
Avatar n tn Is it possible to be allergic to oxycodone (percocet) If I am not allergic to Morphine or Vicoden?
Avatar m tn 5 (4 and then 3 a day) to come off of 10 mg methadone per day (3 yrs). My question is, if i use this percocet will i then withdrawal from it? Heres the details: day one thru 12 took 4 perc's a day to maintain. still symptoms but was able to go to work and sleep. mostly very fatigued and my thinking is erratic. emotional at times, feeling of insecurity, anger, etc. But nothing is as bad as what I had become taking methadone- isolated, aggitated.
1448748 tn?1312959808 if I change to morphine for my immediate surgery pain, will I still experience percocet withdrawal pain while on the morphine? Also since I will only be on the morphine for 6-10 days the morphine would not cause withdrawals when I stopped if I were to go this route would it? Normally I know I'm strong enough to handle it, but after surgery I don't even want to try.
Avatar m tn I have been taking 7.5mg of oxycodone hcl for the last 3 years, as a result of a failed ankle transplant which is now collapsing. I often snort the dose in belief that it will more quickly ease my pain, which is excruciating in the mornings. I have decided i no longer want to be taking this stuff for whatever reason. Maybe it's the negative stigma that is associated with painkillers like these, but i almost feel ashamed to be taking this.
Avatar n tn Ok so I was taking oxycodone pain killers for about 1 1/2 years for my back issues. 10 mg pills and I was only taking anywhere from 1 to 1 and a 1/2 a day. Never exceeded that. However I started getting nervous that long term probably isn't good on my stomach. So I lowered my dosage last week to 3/4 of a pill for about 5 days then I quit last Friday. That's where the problems started. First 40 hours I felt like I had a strange low grade current running through my arms/legs.
