Reviews for Acetaminophen/oxycodone to treat Pain
Review by Lefty Lucy (taken for 1 to 6 months):
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I was prescribed Percocet 5/325 for a displaced distal radius fracture. It was great at helping to manage the pain until I could have surgery to implant hardware to keep the fracture in place and dealt with post op pain well too. Vicodin was the MD's original choice but leaves me wired and sleepless. I've only used this for 4 weeks and am now down to just one tab at night. The primary side effects I've noticed now are some pretty extreme GI distress but have been told this is normal. All in all, this has been a very painful injury and I'm not sure just what I would have done without consistent pain relief. I do suggest using no more than necessary.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I have to say that these pills are a miracle when it comes to pain. The reason I wanted to post my review of Percocet is because of the very, very, vivid dreams. I actually just woke up and had a dream that scared me half to death. I really and truly thought that I saw my wife cheating with another man I could not believe it, you guys have no idea how REAL it felt. So just letting you guys know.
Endocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): 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.

acetaminophen/oxycodone: After suffering for 3 weeks after surgery (full hysterectomy) I started taking this medicine and because it is time release I finally was able to have a full night sleep with no discomfort! In my opinion time release medications work better for myself after a major surgery because other ones get out of your system too quick and therefore you are having to take more pills than prescribed.

Percocet 5/325 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I been suffering with migraines for months now. I tried the over the counter meds none ever works. My doctor gave me migraines medicines still never works and I decide to go to the E.R. and they gave me Percocet 5/325 and it was great. It's a great pain killer ever.
Review by discpain3 (taken for 6 months to 1 year):
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): Percocet seemed to be the only pill that would help me while I was dealing with the pain from 2 herniated discs in my back (pre- surgery.) Although it couldn't take even close to all the pain away, it did help significantly. I was taking 10mg/ 4 times a day, and I was still in significant pain, but it worked better than advil, hydrocodone, and dilauded. Now post- surgery, I only take it for breakthrough pain.

Percocet 10/325 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I am 23 years old and recently had a medial meniscus transplant on my right knee. It is an exceptionally painful procedure since they must drill into capsule of your joint. Percocet worked wonders for me.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I experience dizziness and a decreased sensitivity to my pain. The loopy, light headed feeling makes lie down for an hour and after I start to feel the medicine kick in.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I have a high tolerance for meds. Percocet 10/325 mg takes my pain level from a 7/8 to a 3/4. I have been on this medicine for over 2 years and it allows me to continue to workout and move around doing my job.

Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I had a re-treatment of an infected root canal and after 4 days of increasing pain I had finally hit my breaking point on Sunday night. I was crying and shaking uncontrollably and was at my wits end! This was the MOST excruciating pain I have EVER had in my life, I never thought a tooth could hurt so bad. I went to an emergency dentist who opened my tooth up and cleaned it out again, and prescribed me antibiotics & 10mg Percocet. After taking the Percocet that night I finally slept after 4 days of sleepless nights. This pain medication is a GOD SEND!

Percocet 7.5/500 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): Got all four wisdom teeth removed and wasn't put under. I was just given one of these and I didn't feel a thing. Alternated between that and ibuprofen 800mgs every four hours for the next week and I was fine.
Percocet 7.5/325 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I also take this medicine in between MS Contin after breaking my neck and I'm surprised that the 7.5/325 works quite a bit better than the 5/325. It has been a big help for the break through pain. I've noticed if I don't take them for over 24 hours I begin having withdrawal symptoms such as muscle cramps and nausea.
Review by crazycattud (taken for less than 1 month):
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I had 3 impacted wisdom teeth removed under general anesthetic. The oral surgeon prescribed me Percocet. Percocet was a bit too intense for me, even though it did rid of the pain. It was intense because it made me dizzy and drowsy. I found myself having to lay down most of the time when on it, as I also felt that my heart rate increased. I think that because I'm already a worrier, the side effects left me panicky.

Percocet 10/650 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I have taken Lortab 10/325 since 2008 for severe DJD and rheumatoid arthritis. It became ineffective. Dr recently started me on the Percocet 10/650 mg. It has worked so much better controlling my pain.
Percocet 10/325 (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I take oxycodone 10/325 2 x daily for pain management. I have ulner steroid degeneration in both wrists along with rheumatoid arthritis as well. After surgery on both hand/wrists I was left with severe pain. The medicines make it tolerable as I work 90 percent of the day on a computer. I do have stomach acid from the medicines but take over the counter acid reducer for that. It has been a year since taking the medicines and I feel much so much better. My Dr does see me to evaluate the pain every six months.
Review by Pedro4871 (taken for less than 1 month):
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): Unbelievable relief from post-op back surgery pain. Was DC'ed from morphine pump due to side effects (hallucinating, explosive agitation) and 10 mg of percocet every 4 hours made the fresh 7 inch incision in my lower back "go away". Warning, I did also hallucinate on this medication and it was very unpleasant. But more tolerable than morphine and with top notch pain relief.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I'm 24 and I work in a -20 freezer selecting orders for groceries stores. Constant bending and lifting while briskly walking. 3 times a week in 8 hours I'll take tramadol and one or two 10/325 Percocet. That cocktail gets me going. Loosens me up, No pain in back our feet and it numbs the cold out. I could run for 9 hours with it.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I like using Percocet for my back pain. It helps more than other pain pills that I've taken before. Lortab didn't do anything or Ultram. I do have a scheduled epidural for my back this week. So, hopefully when, I get that shot I might not need to take as many Percocet! I also, have to take Zanaflex, Muscle Relaxer's twice a day for my spasms. They just make you really tired. So, if you have to drive I wouldn't take the muscle relaxers.
Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): I've had two knee replacement's since 2005 (same knee) and two surgery's on foot for Mortons Neuroma. I've had nothing but problems with both and have been in moderate to severe pain since 2005. After my Doc tried several medicines for pain the only thing that has worked was Percocet. I've been on it for several years however I quit for a month and a half and now I'm back on it. I'm taking 3 a day and It's absolutely amazing how I can work and function normally while on this. I also believe that not only does it relieve the pain but I'm alert and have so much more energy and I'm able to remain productive at 60 years old. I sleep like a baby at night too. Great Stuff.

Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone): Percocet is the absolute best pain medication out there. The overall feeling of warmth and well being that it gives me, along with pain relief, is amazing and truly priceless.
