Reviews for Endocet to treat Pain
Review by Kaylei:
I was in a very bad car accident in 2009, needless to say I've been on pain medication since then and have been given everything from hydrocodone to fentanyl patches to OxyContin. I'm only 27 so its hard to be doped up and tired all the time. And it was either nausea or headaches all the time. My doctor put me on Endocet 10s about a year ago and they are the absolute best thing for my pain. My tolerance isn't rising quickly either. I'm very pleased so far with this medication, no negative side effects aside from very mild bathroom troubles.

Husband has been on Endocet for 7 years. It was the only narcotic pain reliever that works for him. He refuses to accept other generics as they do not work as well for him.
I am sure body chemistry plays a roll in which med works for each individual. For him, Endocet is the best.

I have 3 herniated discs in my lower back, and sciatica. The 10/325 Endocet is magnificent for stopping the intense, constant pain I always feel. However, it makes my head feel really loopy and spacey. Not that I'm complaining about that (it is still kind of novel/fun), but it's something I think other people should be aware of.
I've been taking Endocet 10 mg for almost a year, just this last week I have been hit with breathing problems. I gasp for air at the littlest of effort. This is very scary, I instantly have stopped taking them. I sure hope my breathing gets better soon. I have bad knees and this did seem to help take the edge off but I would much rather breath than take any edge off.
I've been on pain medicines for 10 years now. The first 8 years on the yellow name brand Percocets 240 10/325, the last 2 yrs on the generic version which is the Endocet E712-10/325. I also take 60 Oxycontin 40mg a month. The combination of the 2 has been a dream come true.

After having major oral surgery I was given this and I was skeptical about this medicine, I had never heard of it before but it really helped with the pain. I later found out it was the same as Percocet, which I was familiar with.

Like any pain pill, it will vary GREATLY on side effects and effectiveness with each patient. For me, I have been on 10/325 for 2 years for chronic pain from an injury. Before that I had been prescribed Hydrocodone and the side effects from that for ME were alot like what I've seen people here say about hydrocodone. I got a tolerance very quickly and would have to take more, I was very agitated, extremely exhausted, and even with all of that I would still be unable to be productive due to pain. I've tried some other things before this also, but nothing was helping. I STILL have pain, and yes, some days nothing seems to ease it, on those REALLY BAD days, but I am really happy with this medicine still being effective 2 yrs later.
Causes less nausea, in comparison to Norco 10. Oxy 10s are obviously going to do the trick better but also without the nausea. Overall, for moderate pain in most normal situations, this is the way to go (especially if your stomach is touchy).
I have currently been changed from Lortab 10 to Endocet 10 for herniated discs and I find that it helps the pain but makes me very tired and easily irritated. I can be fine one second and the next I want to punch someone then I'm crying. Although the Lortab wasn't as effective for the pain it didn't make me tired or crazy. I have 2 kids so I need to be on top of my game at all times. I also found it very hard to keep awake after taking these.

I have been on Percocet 10 for several years. I was first put on 5/325 then upp'd to 10/325, after 8 years I went in to talk with the Doctor about being afraid of being addicted. I had suffered 4 tooth abscesses in April and found that my normal amount was not helping my acute pain. was in tremendous pain until the antibiotics got the infection under control. No dentist would pull them. Worst week of my entire life and I've had children, hysterectomy you name it. So I talk to the Doctor about my concerns and she gets annoyed..very defensive. Yes Percocet 10 works great for pain, but be careful, don't take if you are not in severe pain, like me, when you do get in severe pain, they wont be able to get your pain under control. I was in misery.

I have been dealing with lower back and leg pain for the last year and half. I was started with Oxys 5mg. It took awhile to figure out how much I needed to make through a day. It could be anywhere from 2 to 8 daily and never had any problem working. My script was change to Percs. 5mg. and they seem to work a lot better and only needed at most 4 per day, but I had a hard time trying to work. My last script was for Endocet 10mg. I took one before I went to bed and the next day waking up was real hard to do things like talking. I'm only using a 1/2 of one at a time at this point and on a good day just a half on a bad day 1 & 1/2.

I've used the brand name "Percocet 7.5" before, and it worked very well. But, I was recently diagnosed with a pinched nerve in my neck and was having severe pain with it and was prescribed Percocet and was given this generic brand "Endocet". Even though it's a higher dosage, 10mg, it doesn't work near as well. I'm having to take 1 & 1/2 pills to get any relief. I wonder if there are different companies (and how many) that make Percocet generic brands? I've found the same problem with Ultram/tramadol 50mg. Some of the generic brands just don't work for me at all, but there is one specific generic tramadol that does work very good for me, which is the one my pharmacist knows to give me when filling my script.

I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled about a week ago. I was prescribed fifteen 5 milligram Endocets for after surgery. I took about 5 the first day and then 3 the next and 2 the 3rd day and 1 the fourth fay. It helped the pain, but not for very long. I took a nap every time I took a pill. I also found myself to have severe mood swings while on the Endocets. I was happy one minute then felt awful the next. Also, they gave me TERRIBLE constipation. If you're taking them eat a lot of fiber or take a laxative or a two a day to keep everything moving. Although for the short amount of time that they worked, my body felt awesome.

It works better than Lortab I think. It was getting to where I had to take at least 3 Lortab 10mg just for my pain to go away. Now I am on Endocet 7.5mg and it does wonders. The thing is medicines scare me cause I don't want to get addicted but I have been taking this medicine for a good long time and I just recently been coming off of it and I haven't suffered from one withdrawal. It's awesome.
