For Pain "Seemed to work fairly well. Caused some minimal problems with bowels and dried out my system quite a bit."

For Pain "Percocet has been a life changer for me with my sciatic nerve condition. I can now work and support my family while my condition is diagnosed and hopefully treated well. I agree some form of Percocet should be considered for depression."

For Pain "I had been taking Lortab 10/500 for several months for pain. It literally stopped working. I just had my 9th back surgery. All my other surgeries I bounced back quickly. This last one I haven't. The pain has increased drastically. I can barely walk. I still can't lie on my back or right side. Until yesterday. My Dr. gave me Percocet 10/650 and I can tell a huge difference. I actually slept last night. Now I have to have another MRI to make sure this back surgery hasn't messed up. Percocet really helps."

For Pain "I am 19 with severe testicular pain, at first the doctor prescribed meloxicam which helped but made me sick, then he put me on Vimovo, didn't help at all and I was up all night vomiting. I told him I needed something better. At first he was reluctant to give me Vicodin or Percocet. He later prescribed me Percocet 5/325 and man, that stuff really works, it makes you feel like yourself, no pain, no anxiety, no depression, it is a miracle for me. You must stop as the pain goes and please only take as directed by your doctor as it can become very addicting. A few downsides are: tiredness, nausea (sometimes) and you want to talk a LOT."

For Pain "I had a double lung transplant and was prescribed this medicine. It did well for the pain, but also gave me mental improvements, as I have seen others have experienced as well. Not only did it get rid of the pain but it also lessened my depression, decreased my anxiety, and made me feel more relaxed and like my normal self. I was more positive, more productive and life was just overall better."

For Pain "Taking 7.5/325 for Shingles pain across back and chest, going into 3rd week post-diagnoses. Takes the edge off but comes nowhere close to relieving the pain. Nothing does so far."

For Pain "I've recently been diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear, osteoarthritis in my neck, and peripheral neuropathy. I'm also waiting to get surgery for herniated discs L-5 to S-1. I've been on Lortab and really couldn't tell it was doing anything. I had become very depressed due to the severe pain I've been experiencing. The doctor gave me Percocet and at first I was very hesitant to take it. But now that I am it has made such a huge difference. I've only been on it for a few days but for the first time in a very long time I was able to go to sleep last night and stay asleep for more than 3 hours at a time. My shoulder that has the tear is still painful but it is bearable now. I really hope that it has the antidepressant effect too."

For Pain "Am 48 yo woman. Have Fibromyalgia, Myofacial Pain Syndrome, Diabetes, Neuropathy, 4 joint surgeries (tendon reconstructions on both elbows, and two surgeries on left ankle for complete rupture of Brevis tendon, recent fractured L2 vertebrae, and degenerative arthritis in fracture area and neck. Also lost my father and daughter both in the past 24 months. On Vicodin for daily pain and 10/325 Percocet for flare-ups. Tried morphine with terrible side effects so had to quit. For really rough days the Percocet works well. I take with 4mg Zofran. Lifts depression because people feel less depressed when pain is relieved! May also work due to other reasons. Always take on empty stomach because when I take with food I get less effect."

For Pain "I had been prescribed Percocet after 2 failed back surgeries. I now have permanent nerve damage in sciatica and right leg. I found it to be the only thing that worked for me. My primary doctor prescribed for me for about 6 months and then released me from the practice because she felt that she couldn't prescribe for someone with chronic pain. I had to stop taking them immediately as I haven't been able to get another doctor. The withdrawal was noticeable but only lasted about a day. Both doctors referred me to Pain Management but my insurance doesn't cover it. I have been to 2 doctors that have turned me away because my case is "too complicated" and I now I have to live with NO quality of life. Percocet to me was what made me normal."

For Pain "I have cervical stenosis. I can live with the varying levels of pain and discomfort through the day as long as I'm able to move around and change positions. But lying down in bed and trying to sleep was a serious problem for me. I couldn't fall asleep until I was really exhausted and even then I was wakened after an hour or less by pain. My doctor prescribed Percocet 5/325. The full tablet was a bit strong but it did the trick. I fell asleep after ten minutes and slept for six straight hours. I then split the tablets and take one ten minutes before lying down. That gets me to sleep and I sleep for about four hours. When I wake up (usually in pain) I take the other half and I'm good for the day. That's been my regimen for two years."

For Pain "I am a 51 yr old male with cervical degenerative disc disease. I've been on 10 mg Norco for approximately 3.5 years but recently my Doctor changed me to 7.5 mg Percocet because I've become tolerant to the Norco. My pain level hovers around 4 or 5 constantly but the Percocet allows me to maintain. Thanks for this medicine."

For Pain "I have been on Percocet 10 for a month and have had more good days than I was having on Lortab. I think Percocet is wonderful. I have had no side effects at all."

For Pain "I've dealt with "undiagnosed" pain for years. I've had test after test. All I know for sure is that I have severe cramping and diarrhea as well as joint pain. I have also suffered from anxiety and insomnia. Percocet seems to resolve all of my issues in one dose. Unfortunately, I can't get a doctor to take me seriously. The side effects seem to be limited to a warm flush and constipation, which in my case actually makes me regular."

For Pain "I just started taking Percocet today for a 2nd - 3rd degree burn I received on my leg during a fire. I couldn't walk since it happened a few days ago. Now I'm on 2 x 5-325 every four hours. I'm not high but now the pain is bearable. The Vicodin I was on didn't seem to do a thing but now I'm actually mobile. Gave my life a start."

For Pain "I have had knee surgery and a fairly severe tailbone injury. I also ride and train horses so I have lots of accidents/injuries on a regular basis. Percocet really does help for pain, however, like some said, it also alters your mood."

For Pain "I have herniated disc in my lower back L5, S1, arthritis starting in L3, L4 due to the disc, and pinched nerves from L5, S1. My pain specialist has put me on Percocet 10/325 to help with the pain. I have to say that it works great. Percocet is the only medicine that works well. I am also on morphine to help increase its effect. I would not be able to continue working without it. If they were to take it off the market I would not be able to work anymore. Thank you Percocet for all that you help me do, in my very active job of twisting and bending."

For Pain "Tailbone injury, quite severe pain. Percocet is working wonders. Stopped taking Percocet 1 month after the injury, a very painful experience. Continuing the medication until I get into physiotherapy. Doctor says physio should help with the pain. I plan on stopping the Percocet once the pain becomes bearable to live with."

For Pain "I have several chronic back conditions, herniated disc, moderate spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and kyphosis. I have been taking 5/325 mg Percocet 3-4 tabs daily for almost 2 years now. It relieves probably 80 % of my pain and allows me to function. Most of the itching, sweating, nausea, etc. disappears after about a month or so of use. As most people noted, take the minimum strength needed to relieve your pain, and take only as directed. At 61, I'll probably be on these the rest of my life, but at least I can function. I have found Percocet to work better than even Morphine, at least in my case. Highly recommended for chronic pain."

For Pain "I have severe back pain and leg pain associated with sciatica. The MRI indicates a central and left herniated disk between L5-S1 and annular disc bulging at the L4-L5 level. I tried every over the counter pain medication and Tramadol which did nothing. The pain in my back, left buttocks, left calf was debilitating. I could not put a pair of socks on let alone do any normal activity. My doctor then prescribed percocet and I have to say this drug is a God send. It actually has given me my LIFE back! I never get a 'high'- there is no feeling of euphoria- what I do get is RELIEF of my pain so that I can actually work, play and live. Side effects: constipation I eat bran cereal twice a day-gone. I get insomnia at night so I take smaller amounts."
