Percocet withdrawal symptoms side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet withdrawal symptoms side effects


Avatar m tn I have been clean for the last 4 days and thanks to smoking a little herb here and there have been able to get over some of the side effects. Trouble is, even with sleeping aids and other remedies to try and curve the withdraws I still have no gotten through a full not of sleep. Today I was offered the lower dosage 5mg/325 pills. I am curious since it is such a lower dosage if I can take one at night to try and sleep until I cant completely ween myself off of the drugs.
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 Try Ultram,(Tramodol) it's a synthetic narcotic like drug but not on the narcotic control list and it does not produce those irritating side effects that codiene and percocet does. For me it actually kills the pain better too. Your general practioner will be much happier if you ask for that then for the supposed stronger stuff! Oh. it does have some mood elevating effects too so it is somewhat addicting.
1478126 tn?1291072975 i have been taking roughly 12-16 lortabs or percocet 5's for the last 10 months. i could use some suggestions on what to do/take to ease the withdrawal symptoms. i started taking a wide spectrum multivitamin today, using imodium every 6 hours, advil for aches, drinking a TON of water, and taking hot baths. i feel like this is a good starting point, but would like to know if anyone else has had success with anything else. i don't have leg pain on RLS.
Avatar n tn PS- Why was my query post about the withdrawl-cure substrance with the strange visual side effects removed from this forum?

1448748 tn?1312959808 If it wasn't extremely painful(sacro Illiac Joint injections and didn't have terrible side effects(steroids gave me bad side effects) and took 10 days to work and lasted a mere 4 days at only 30% relief. But 30% relief is about what I get from my percocet right now. I have never abused the percocet. I have only taken them as needed and as directed and prescribed. I have never sold or given them away.
4753943 tn?1359938169 Mine was way too fast and I have really suffered. I did the percocet withdrawal first as well but the Effexor made the percocet withdrawals look like a piece of cake.
1466164 tn?1301205416 ive been on percocet since march,off and on, i am having a hard time getting off them and staying off them, right now i am having some weird side effects that are not listed like waking up stiff and swollen and really sore hot achy, then i take 2 i feel a little better then 4 hours later i take 2 again then i feel better, im up to taking 8 a day. i need help and advice, can i die? how can i get through the withdrawls without problems? I have tramadol and flexeril to help is that good?
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 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 have tried Lyrica and the side effects were so near the symptoms of Fibro, I did not realize it was the Lyrica causing them until I came off of it and actually got better, pain wise. I cannot take anything that even hints at mood, such as suicidal thoughts I have not tried the new one even though my dr keeps pushing it at me. I have some amount of quality of life with what I am on right now and I don't want to mess with it.
Avatar n tn Opiate withdrawal symptoms usually start 12-24 hours after your last dose. But, the timing of withdrawal symptoms depends upon the drug taken, length of time you’ve been taking it, and how you react to medications. The physical withdrawals usually last 3-7 days, with days 3 and 4 being the worst. Once again, this is all dependent on the person. You can expect these symptoms.
Avatar f tn I'm now on Day 4, I feel ok, I believe most of the tough withdrawal symptoms are gone, the only ones I feel now are loss of energy, I can't sleep well at night without the aid of sleeping pills or xanax, but I just feel plain out tired and EXTREMELY depressed. I start crying at the drop of the hat. I am a single mother of 2 little girls and I'm all they have. No one in my life knows what I'm going through and I'm a little scared. How much longer will this last? The depression?
Avatar n tn Deb- Narcotics (painkillers) effect many people many different ways. One of the side effects, which is odd really, is while the person is relieved of his pain and may even be experiencing a euphoria of sorts, he/she also can become VERY irritable. Not only under the influence of the substance but also when there isn't enough, they've run out etc. I'm an addict and I know this well. Not saying that your husband is an addict.
Avatar f tn I have had no desire or urge to take them again. My question is, has anyone had withdrawal effects that make the sinuses and mouth dry? This seems to happen in cycles, every 6 hours or so. Once in awhile I will have 2 or 3 good strong sneezes. Other than this, I have made it through the other withdrawal symptoms. I also take clonodine .02 for hypertension. I've been taking these for 3 years, doctors prescription. One of the side effects is dry mouth.
1311475 tn?1274202380 I've gone through about all of the meds that were listed in namnam46's post, I am now on methadone which used to help w/ the pain with no side affects that I couldn't tolerate, now I am having withdrawal symptoms that made me try to quit the medication, the new Dr. gave me Mobic which is an anti inflamatory drug.
Avatar n tn If I taper slowly off of tramadol, can I avoid withdrawal symptoms all together? Or will I feel withdrawal pains no matter what?
5100586 tn?1363648354 When I stepped up to the higher dosage of 100 mgs, 3 x a day is when the more serious side effects occurred. Those side effects were blurred vision (mostly in the a.m.) and some minor weight gain/water retention, and tactile sensitivities. The Lyrica was taken to help some neuropathy pain and maybe help the fms pain. It did nothing. It was agreed upon that if the 100 mg 3x did not help, I would then step down and discontinue using it.
Avatar f tn Hi....I just had an issue with Gabapentin...I have IBS and was on Miralax to help and it was working...until I took the Gabapentin.....I had one heck of a time getting regulated again..... Time frame.......almost 2 months to get back on track after stopping the meds. And may I add...I was on the Miralax the whole month that I took the gabapentin. May I ask Y u were rx'd it?...maybe another rx will work better.
Avatar n tn hello and welcome.In my opinion you are going to get off easy .If you ween off that amount you should suffer minimal w/d symptoms.There are alot of peeps who will tell you how.Me personally do it every time cold turkey and hate life all at once.Kinda like cuting your hand off once opposed to cutting one finger off once a week and suffering a whole lot longer.but that is just me.There aer peeps who are more experienced in other factors than i.Good luck .
Avatar m tn Why did you start to take the xanax and percocet? The physical acute symptoms of withdrawal typically last a week or so. It elevated bp the only symptom you experienced?
Avatar n tn I am without pain at the moment but am going through some horrible withdrawal symptoms from being on such large dosages of percocet for 2 1/2 months. Any advice on how to handle the withdrawal would be helpful.
Avatar m tn It's possible if Percocet is taken during the end of a pregnancy - oxycodone is a narcotic, and using this drug during the end of a pregnancy may cause narcotic withdrawal symptoms in the infant after delivery. Such symptoms may include: Irritability and excessive crying Shakiness (tremors) Hyperactive reflexes Fast breathing Increased stools Sneezing Yawning Vomiting Fever.
Avatar f tn All I meant that if you taper dose like you should, and are actually able to stop, you have almost no withdrawal effects, depending on your dosage. Think I'm on day three here, but I think I was in too much irritation last night so I took a fair amount of stuff for sleep so I'm a little not all mentally here as much today....but so far I think that that is helping.
Avatar n tn is probably anxiety. I would get it at the exact times that you are, and it is one of the bad side effects of the meds. I would definitely try tapering. Your gonna feel it, but not like you would if you totally stopped C/T. As far as kidney or liver damage, anything is possible, but I always thought that when I started taking less. Stress and anxiety go hand in hand in this deal. PM me if you want help with tapering. I will do what I can. God Bless, Nauty............
Avatar n tn If you can you should go to a pain clinic and try and find something that is not as strong but still helps with your pain. You will have side effects to this drug. I now have a pain pump placed in my body. It is connected to my spinal cord. A set amount of medication goes to my spinal cord at the area of my injury. I need one dose of this to my spinal cord as opposed to 300 pills and no patches. It is much better. I understand your situation very well.
