tee01, i hear you on the anti inflammitories, i was a kidney donor and cant take any due to the kidney will get damaged. i have the worse case of tmj from a broken jaw in 1989, and my dr has me on percocet 10/325. for me that really helps. let your dr know you are suffering from pain and ask for something to help with it. get better

I am certainly no expert but it seems that your doc would want you on a med that doesn't contain Acetaminophen like Percocet does. You can get the same med Oxycodone that doesn't contain anything else. I have many intestinal problems and my doc recently switched my to Fentanyl patches. Please be aware though that this med is for opiod tolerent people and is addictive. My suggestion is to talk to your doctor openly and honestly about your concerns and fears. I hope I have helped a little and if there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know.
