Percocet withdrawal oxycodone drug

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet withdrawal oxycodone drug


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 I'm on day 5--withdraw from percocet and using Bupernex, it's a wonder drug ( the Bup). If you did it for 20 years, you're a tough girl,tougher than I am 4 sure!!!
Avatar n tn Oxycodone is the narcotic in both of your scripts. The former, "Oxycodone" is not the generic name of the drug.....but the drug itself. Endocet is the generic name, and has oxycodone in it as well. Oh yes, also your first Rx had 5mgs of oxycodone, whereas your last one had 7.5mgs.
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?
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 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 n tn I have had several surgeries in the past two years and as such, have been on some pain medications - namely oxycodone and percocet (which I understand is a combination of oxycodone and tylenol?) The last time I was at my rehabilitation physician's office, she thought it was time that we "wean" me off of those things and she wrote a script for Vicodin. I have tried it, but I really don't care for it.....
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 After finishing several weeks of physical therapy, I started my cold-turkey withdrawal 4 days ago - no more drug, period. So this is a very typical profile of a person who has had NO other addictions to any drugs and does not have any chronic pain problems that requires continual usage of oxycodone. I have endured the typical withdrawal symptoms - shivers, sweating, anxiety, tingling, and depression - as reported by many others.
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 Is it possible to be allergic to oxycodone (percocet) If I am not allergic to Morphine or Vicoden?
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 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.
Avatar n tn Percocet is a schedule 2 drug and is not allowed to be called in or given refills on written scripts. She is a nurse for the surgeon , she must call a lot of medications in to pharmacies for his patients.Vicoden and all pain killers containing hydrocodone are allowed to be called in and up to 5 refills may be given. There is no way she could take all that percocet or oxycodone the generic name, and get up and work all day without taking more during the day.
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 n tn I know it's really hard, but force yourself NOT to obsess over your physical symptoms. Oxycodone is a strong drug you and your body obviously habituated to the regular daily intake of it. You stopped it and now your physiology is rebounding from that: Headaches, body aches, upset stomach, diarrhea, lack of sleep, severe anxiety, lethargy, all of it. Hang in there, honey. All of this will be MUCH different in a week; I can almost guarantee it.
Avatar n tn Hello: Sounds like withdrawal to me. I have been there and done that. Percocet, actually it's the asprin in the percs that hurts your stomach. Tylenol 4 can be hard on the stomach too. I'm no doctor, as for what you will go through if you stop. It will be uncomfortable for a couple of days. Then you should be fine. I have major back problems myself so i've been through taking opiates(that's what percocet is) and it's hard stopping them.
Avatar f tn Please help .... I have been on Percocet 30mg a night for almost a year now . I have chronic knee issues . I no longer want to be on this anymore I know I'm taking it now just to take it . I am so so scared of withdrawls. I tried tapering but I had no will power. Should I go cold turkey? Please help I don't want this drug to run my life anymore. I have kids and I want to be a better mom for them. I need support I am so scared.
Avatar n tn But if you have a massive addiction to Opiates to begin with and you are snorting one Opiate to replace the other, (because you stated that you didn't notice the percocet withdrawal~due to snorting the Vicodin) would it matter that you were not actually taking the Vicodin long enough to be addicted to them? Aren't they all in the same family Opiates? Isn't one just replacing the other, and if you did that kind of taper in 3 days would you not still feel withdrawal symptoms?
Avatar n tn I'm not sure at all what your primary care doctor means by that if what u said is exactly what he said. Because saying Percocet is the only safe drug for your fetus makes no sense to me at all Percocet is still an opiate and is infact the exact same as the 30mg oxycodone you have been taking.
Avatar m tn I would seriously doubt you'd get withdrawals going from Vicodin to Percocet. However, Percocet also has Tylenol in it. Oxycodone does not. I switched from Percocet to Oxycodone and then Oxycontin because I didn't want the Tylenol. What kind of doctor do you see for your conditions? I was seeing an orthopedic for arthritis along with some other conditions and they had me on Vicodin initially. Then I went to a hand specialist.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am currently on day 18 of a cold turkey oxycodone withdrawal. Most physical withdrawal symptoms have passed. However, I am still struggling with some insomnia, and abdominal issues. Nothing like before. I am struggling with now are the emotional issues, the depression side of things. I just got back from a vacation with my entire family that I was not able to enjoy. My two children's faces would light up with excitement and I couldn't feel anything inside but emptiness.
Avatar m tn It's possible that your system may be a bit tolerant to the oxycodone (Percocet). In some ppl their pain is actually becoming worse and the opiates are no longer effective. Only a physician can determine if you are tolerant or your pain is worse or poorly controlled. In short acting opiates oxycodone is one of the stronger ones that most physicians are willing or able to prescribe. You may be looking at adding a long acting opiate (slow release) for better pain control.
