Percocet without acetaminophen

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet without acetaminophen


1064524 tn?1257203355 5 mg Hydrocodone without any acetaminophen for breakthrough pain? If you are being prescribed the acetaminophen for the anti-inflammatory properties there are other drugs that can be prescribed in addition to the narcotics. I am suggesting this because as I stated my enzymes were only slightly elevated and I began to feel pain and tenderness in the abdomen around the liver.
Avatar m tn also instead of the percocet one of the times a day I just take tylenol. so the acetaminophen my body craves is still getting without the oxycodone. thanks for the support.
Avatar n tn kind of like there is "tylenol" the brand name of "acetaminophen"... you can buy "tylenol" with different strengths of acetaminophen in it... in this case the "oxycodone" is the acetaminophen... anyhow, before i confuse myself or anyone else anymore i will leave you with that~ lol!!
2110255 tn?1334192149 The active opioid ingredient in percocet (aka oxycodone) comes in a pill without tylenol so if your tylenol intake through taking percocet gets to a level that is above your comfort zone, be sure to talk to your doctor about oxycodone IR or roxicodone. And, as the other poster won't stop breathing in your sleep as long as you take it as prescribed by your physician.
Avatar f tn I have been taking percocet (oxycodone acetaminophen) 5/325 1 pill 3 times a day. That was a great system that worked for me. Recently I was prescribed oxycodone minus the acetaminophen. I understand the risks of liver damage. However, I have had NO relief since I began this new drug. I'm confused because it is the same drug minus the Tylenol. Anyone else experiencing this? Would taking a higher dose of the oxycodone (not Percocet which is oxy with acetaminophen) help me better?
Avatar n tn My doctor changed my script to Percocet without acetaminophen when I told him the Percocet was making me sick to my stomach and vomiting more often than not after taking them.... so far so good!
446474 tn?1446351282 I believe one issue with Vicodin is that many people didn't know that it contained Acetaminophen and were taking additional Tylenol without realizing how much Acetaminophen they were taking. And we know some people just overdose on Tylenol without even knowing that in large quantities it's toxic. I think labeling will do a lot and a lesser dose of Acetaminophen should make overdose less likely.
Avatar f tn If anything I need to get my meds lowered or get the doctor to write the Percocet without acetaminophen. They do have Percs without acetaminophen. Being an ex heroin user, I know I am addicted to the pain meds and it will be a fight to get off them but I am determined to do so once I can get my back in better shape. Like I said I am just worried that the Percocet I take now is damaging my liver.
Avatar m tn You have a good size habit going - not to mention the amount of acetaminophen that you are consuming - - without help you should probably try to taper down. But virtually all of us with that size habit are terrible at doing a taper.....You should probably find someone that can help you by dispensing the pills on a schedule. Stop taking large amounts at once and start spreading them out more over the day. Stop spiking your serum levels essentially.
Avatar n tn You stated that your taking 325 mg percocet. That's the amount of acetaminophen (also called Tylenol or APAP, too) in your pills. How much oxycodone is in each pill? Usually it will say 5/325, 7.5/325, or 10/325. Also, how many are you taking every day right now? It will help someone give you a tapering plan if they know just how much you're taking of what strength each day.
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 Like the other posters said, Oxycodone does not have acetaminophen in it and Percocet does, which can be harder on your liver. It sounds like your Dr is willing to work with you on these changes. Maybe try what the other posters said and cut your pills in half to see how you do on them. You might do just fine or you may need an increase but really think about doubling it right away.
Avatar m tn I am a long-term migraine sufferer and have been taking pain killers now for about two years (hydrocodone 5/500). A lot of the time I will take 1500 mgs of acetaminophen in one dose. Does anyone know if this will be detrimental to my liver? I never EVER exceed the 4000mg limit in 24 hours, but I will often take 6 pills in one day, that is 1500 mgs of acetaminophen, then 1500 mgs again twelve hours later if necessary. I am very strict about the time in between each dose.
Avatar m tn Because Percocet contains acetaminophen, it is wise to choose a plain formulation of oxycodone, without acetaminophen, when higher doses are needed. Unfortunately, acetaminophen is more damaging to your liver than any opioid medication. A dose as low as 4 g / day (2 - Extra Strength Tylenol, 4 times a day) can be toxic.
4204073 tn?1361835076 I asked what no buffer is and was told no acetaminophen. I've never heard of this, so was curious if anyone knows what they really are?
Avatar n tn They are not the same. Percocet is oxycodone/acetaminophen and Norco is hydrocodone/acetaminophen. They both come in many strength's as seen on this web page http://www.pharmer.
1161075 tn?1262992028 10milligrams of oxycodone, which is all released when the pill is taken. Percocet also contains acetaminophen (the drug in Tylenol) OxyContin doesn’t contain acetaminophen. It is pure oxycodone in amounts much larger than in Percocet. OxyContin pills come with 10, 20, 40 ,80 or 160 mg of oxycodone. Just one OxyContin pill can have the same amount of oxycodone as 16 Percocets With OxyContin, only part of the oxycodone is released when the pill is taken.
Avatar f tn i was on Percocet for about 2years and then found out that i am pregnant i told my pain office that i was pregnant and thay complitly cut me off and i can get in to see my dr until the 16th i am now going threw withdrawals and am so scared the withdrawing is no joke i feel so sick i dont know what to do and my babys dad is not vary supporting about it at all i cant even talk to him about it cuz we will fight :(
Avatar n tn extended release, and 25 5 mg percocet. I anyone's help on how to taper myself without going crazy. Plus, I don't even know if I have the willpower to do it. I'm sure once I stop taking them I'll be slammed with chronic migraines again. And yes, I feel horrible self loathing over the poor little medicated baby I'm carrying. If I can manage to quit, will he be OK? have I ruined his little liver and brain. I'm so depressed, any help appreciated.
Avatar m tn Im trying everything...showering, acetaminophen, laying on it...
Avatar f tn Are you talking about the recent issues with the manufacture of oxycodone? If so the drug is still available in percocet or percodan. Percocet and Percodon are oxy with either acetaminophen or aspirin added. If this what you are talking about?
Avatar m tn It's possible to get Percocet without the -cet. Straight oxycodone works better to control my pain than anything I have taken to date, and I have taken quite a few different things. That's why I love my PMP as much as I do, he listens to me and prescribes what I feel works instead of telling me to "Try this, if it doesn't work yadda yadda yadda". I have to travel 90 miles to get to my doctor (the worst part about Texas, everything is hours from everything else!
Avatar f tn Lastly, the one thing you do want to be careful with is mixing alcohol with the percocet as the acetaminophen combined with alcohol can cause severe liver problems and even liver failure if the two are mixed on a regular basis. I hope your headache gets better soon.
1375159 tn?1311691944 It is combined in many prescription products with other ingredients, usually opioids such as codeine (Tylenol with Codeine), oxycodone (Percocet), and hydrocodone (Vicodin). OTC acetaminophen products are not affected by today's action. “FDA is taking this action to make prescription combination pain medications containing acetaminophen safer for patients to use,” said Sandra Kweder, M.D., deputy director of the Office of New Drugs in FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
Avatar f tn Acetaminophen and oxycodone may pass into breast milk and could harm a nursing baby. Do not use Percocet without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Avatar n tn Percocet does not contain codeine. Percocet is acetaminophen 325mg and oxycodone 5mg. Personally I would avoid any category C meds while in the first trimester. I'm 8 weeks pregnant, and I have constant pain from arthritis in my spine and muscle spasticity in my neck that never goes away, and all I take right now is Tylenol.
Avatar f tn Could anyone please help with percocet withdrawal? I've perscribed percocet (5/325 2x-4x daily) for a back injury (herniated discs) less than 2 months ago. I've tried to take it on a need basis, to avoide addiction, which means I average on 2 pills a day and only sometimes 3 a day, but lately I've started noticing that that 3-4 hours after I take a pill I start getting flu like symptoms and dizziness to the point where I'm afraid I'm going to faint.
Avatar f tn I know that neither is good to have, but in having both...will the percocet abuse expedite any chances of liver damage? If so, what are the best liver cleansing procedures. Especially considering I stop taking the pills?
Avatar m tn All oxycontin is, is the percocet you take now in a time release formulation without the added acetaminophen. Your friends that smoked it, snorted it, chewed it, and injected it, did so to overcome the time release mechanism such that all of the medicine would be released at once versus over a 8 to 12 hour period. There are people out there that snort percocet too.
Avatar n tn I too am going thru the same hydrocodone ****. Vicodin was my drug of choice. I started again a few times last year by going to speacialists under my plan who knew nothing of my history. In September I started a job working in an old friends home daycare and found out that she was a bigtime percocet user. Now sad to say that most weeks I get paid in pills instead of money.
