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.

Given this for kidney stones. Takes away the pain helps you relax. I experience a little bit of nausea but not severe.

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 have a total hip replacement and a fused ankle due to a motorcycle wreck. So far this medicine has helped. I give it around 8.5. The side effects I have had that it makes me sleepy but other than that it helps.

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.

I had my gall-bladder removed and was prescribed Percocet 10/325 for the pain. Wonderful. It helps me sleep and gets rid of the pain.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Review by crazycattud (taken for less than 1 month):

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

This medicine is an amazing painkiller. When it wears off, my teeth (wisdom teeth) hurt. I just take Percocet and wah lah, no more pain.
