Reviews for Percocet to treat Pain

Sort by:

"I recently had a 9 mm and 7 mm kidney stone between my kidney and bladder. Too large to pass so I had to have a stent placed to prevent blockage while waiting a week to go back for the procedure to break up the stones to a passable size. I had been given several types of pain meds through I. V. While in the hospital including some that were very powerful including duladid among others. I was sent home for 5 days while waiting for the procedure and was given percocet 10 / 325 1 every 4 hours. Without it I couldn't have tolerated the pain. Also had very limited side effects, nothing like what the I. V. Meds caused and I felt much safer taking it vs the other more powerful meds. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from kidney stones"

"Ok so you probably want to take this with food. It made me EXTREMELY nauseous when I didn't. Works well for pain. While many pain meds make a person sleepy, this one has the complete opposite effect on me. It made me extremely energetic/hyper. I had overwhelming urges to "spring clean" the house, garage, and do things I had been putting off. The down side of that, however, is it interferes with my sleep and I can't take it at bedtime. It's ok for daytime pain for me."

"I was prescribed this medication after vaginal birth, 30 hours labor and a significant episiotomy. Medicine was a life saver. I have a very low pain tolerance and had almost no pain while taking this medicine. The cons were that I was extremely constipated and mentally was very out of it and even had some light hallucinations."

"Prescribed this after impacted wisdom teeth extractions. Eased pain a little, but the headache, sleeplessness, constipation, jitters and persistent nausea isn't worth it. Ibuprofen works much better without any side effects."

"I just recently got this medicine for tooth pain. As I am going to dds for several issues.. My RX I 5/325. I've noticed it minimizes the pain but doesn't take it away. I also am going g thru major nausea sometime vomiting. It makes me so tired feeling and always thirsty feeling... I may need to just stick with motrin.. I will talk to her about this when I go for my next appt on tuesday"

"Extreme aching throbbing lower back pain. Tried lyrica, cymbalta, tramadol, ultram, vicodine, flexyril, deseryl, trasadone, imiprimine, just to name a few with no relief and in most cases felt worse. Had 2 injections at L4/L5 that did nothing to relieve the pain and was finally given 10/325 percocet 1 twice a day but i find that 1/2 twice a day allows me to function and provides relief so I can actually feel like doing things. I am disappointed that this drug is taboo I guess because of the potential for abuse, but anyone with real pain is not taking it for the narcotic affect but so they can lead a normal life. I think the FDA and physicians that try to steer clear of prescribing it need to experience living with pain."

"This made me extremely nauseated. I was not even able to keep it down, let alone benefit from any pain relief."

"I find when I do take Percocet for my back problems they really help. Stop taking them when I'm not in pain was an issue also. For the withdrawal I would take a few tylenol #2 or #3. Really helped. After a week it was all good and not much withdrawal at all."

"Took the pill every six hours for two weeks after shoulder surgery to deal with the immense pain. It worked! Then I stopped one day. Big mistake. The withdrawal took a week and I felt like going to the ER. No one told me to taper off. The pain became unbearable again especially after physical therapy and now I only take one an hour before PT. Bottom line, it works but is a narcotic so addiction CAN happen and withdrawal must be executed carefully."

"Prescribed for pain of a large ulcer on my foot, 10/325 x6 a day, it definitely provided relief until I recovered (2 months). Tapering and stopping was crummy but somewhat relieved by clonidine, neurontin and a short course of ativan. A potent pain med tho, definitely works!"

"I'm 19 years old, play college football, and this medication really gave me my life back after battling with severe groin pain (I'm a male) from a sports injury. There were times where my pain level exceeded a level 10, and Percocet brought it down to a 3-4, a level where I can function. My doctor said it's best to take this medication BEFORE your pain gets severe. It's called "catching up with your pain", and really makes a difference."

"This medication was a lifesaver after cancer surgery. I took one pill every six hours as needed 10/325. I was able to sleep, walk, and eat after surgery. I am not taking it anymore, my doctor gave me sixty. I have thirty left I will use those if I ever need them again."

"Percocet was a life saver for me. I was on Vicodin prior, and they didn't help whatsoever. I had taken Vicodin for like, 5 years. I was at the point where I had to take like SIX Vicodin to get relief. People acted like I was a seeker but I'm definitely not, I just got a high tolerance because the dose was never changed. Percocet helps so much more! If I'm in 10/10 pain, I can take like one and a half or two - and it'll take it down to a 3-4/10. I have quite a few health issues, my main issue is a back injury from cheerleading and a bladder issue called interstitial cystitis. It's excruciating. Since changing to Percocet, I went from every month or two, being in the ER... to, no ER visits!"

"I was recently put on percochet for back problems. I have periods of feeling bad but once I take 10/325 it really helps with the pain. Still havin issues with waking up in the middle of the night. I actually can live a normal life now without being in misery."

"Probably one of (if not the best) pain reliever on the market when used for acute pain. Or when coupled with a long lasting "around the clock" pain reliever it can be used for breakthrough pain."

"I have really bad back pain and at such a young age I take Percocet 4 times a day and it allows me to sleep and work where as other medications just made my stomach upset. I would rate it a 9 for the relief it gives you I honestly felt like I could not function anymore I was in so much pain and now I enjoy walking I don't have to stop ever 10 minutes to catch my breath from my pain."

"Great for short term pain relief as far as long term the withdrawal makes you wish you never started taking and could manage pain without it only if nessesary. Follow directions."

"I was given this for what was supposed to be Tempromandicular joint dysfuntion. It worked for four days. Until the pain became so great I went in crying & shaking. Turned out I had to get my tooth extracted & a bone graft. My filling had cracked and the nerve was exposed & dying. Increased me to 10 mg, not only was my mouth pain free after surgery; my two herniated disc & pinch nerves ; my back, neck & shoulder was almost pain free. I was able to do laundry and cook for my family. Best thing ever after 12 years of no relief. I take the smallest dose 5 mg with the option to take 2 if needed."

"I had menisectomy back in 2011, after 2 years I started having bad pain under my knee cap and my lateral side of my knee. Doctor prescribed me Norco 5mg it had little effect so he switched to Percocet 5mg, feels good to sleep at night."

"My finger was partially amputated and reattached. Vicodin didn't help the pain but Percocet is excellent. I only take a small dose so the pain is not wholly gone, but I don't care once I've taken it. It has made this manageable and I sleep well, too."
