Does anyone have any advice on how to go about getting my Dr. to perscribe me Percocet instead of Hydrocodone, etc.? I have had severe lower back pain caused by a herniated disc that was the result of a bad car accident years ago (luckily the pain comes and goes for long intervals.) Hydrocodone does absolutely nothing for my pain at prescribed doses. Since I have done very well for a long time and never formed any sort of habit, I am scared to take any more than that. Percocet works wonderfully, but I have never gotten perscription for them and do not know how to go about doing so. Anyone have any advice? I also have a rebuilt ankle resulting from the same car accident. Sorry this so long, and thank you to anyone willing to help.
