    Default Is there another way to get Percocet legally?

    About 2 months ago, I began having acute severe pain in my lower spine. When I went to the ER, instead of checking, they went with the most likely diagnosis and assumed lower lumbar strain, and they prescribed me flexeril and vicodin. Neither one helped at all.

    I went 2 weeks later to my family doc, he checked it out and told me I have a severely herniated disc. He prescribed me 15 Percocet (10/650) and 45 Soma (350mg).

    When I take the Percocet, I only need to take half a tablet, and it works great for about 6 hours. I have never bothered to take the Soma, because I have heard it makes you feel great, but I am leary of taking anything new, and have also heard lots of horror stories that included death, severe allergic reactions, and difficulty breathing. I have allergy induced asthma, and it's the height of pollen season, so my breathing is bad enough without adding to the problem. I'm also a smoker, which I know doesn't help either.

    So here's my problem. My doctor charges $70 a visit, and I do not have insurance. I also do not have the money to spend to keep going if he's only gonna give me 15 Percocet each time, because they lasted me only 10 days, and I have now been dealing with this pain about 2 months.

    I like how well the Percocet worked, and I refuse to take the Soma after learning a lot about it. Is there any way (websites, other methods) to get Percocet? Preferably enough to last me more than 10 days?

    I have 2 children, and my son is a little over a year old. My pain gets so bad that I can't even bend over to play with him, or pick him up. I need relief, and I don't think my doctor would be willing to give me more than 15, and I'm afraid if I go back for the same thing, he might think I'm a junkie or something.

    Also, he ordered me to lay down on the floor and stay off my feet for 10-20 days. I am the only source of income for my wife, kids and myself, because she is a full time law student and there is absolutely no way she can work. In other words, taking 2-3 weeks off work isn't even a slight possibility.

    If anybody has any advice at all, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to tell you the only way to get online meds LEGALLY,is with a script from a Dr.,and since your Dr. is only giving you 15 at a time then that wont do you any good...Sure there are plenty of ways to get stuff illegally,but you have a family and im sure you dont want to chance getting busted...Why dont you go to a pain managment specialist? Since pain is what they do then he can have a better idea of what,and how much you need...Good luck!

    If you need to keep taking the percocet then they are going to become useless pretty quickly as you will get tolerant to them.Ask your doctor about going on a 12 hour percocet.It's actually called Oxyconton and contain the exact opiate that is in percocet oxycodone.The oxycontin is a sustained release oxycodone without the tylenol which is bad for your liver if your taking percocet everday.Good luck and have that back fix asap........Dave

    Angry percocets

    I get 90 percocets a month, 60 Soma, Lyrica and Ambien. I have 4 disc bad ,3 in my lower back and 1 between my shoulder blades. Big truck wreck about 3 years ago. The lower being the worst. My pain is far more than what the percocets can deal with. Thats the strongest I can get them to prescribe.Most mornings I take 1.5 to 2 percs just to get out bed. then 1 pill about every 3to4 hours (I still work full time 40-60 hrs week) The pain pills are the only thing that work. Docs are like "oh those are so strong" . I end up buying off the streets. Just to get to work. Next week I have an appointment with a Pain Management Dr. Todays appt. with Orthopedic Doc was cancelled as he is "out of town". I have never been a pill head of any kind. But without them I do not get out of bed, eat or anything. My insurance is worthless (United Healthcare). Regular docs will not prescibe much pain meds if any. You were lucky. Pain Management will do you much better but isn't cheap. When I go on the 11th I will let you know the outcome and price. Insurance companys are not our friends anyway. I hope all works out for you. Sincerely, Terry N.....

    Have you asked the Dr for more at a time?? Tell him your finacial situation and if you can get a months supply. Also like the other post said it might be a good idea to inquire about the long acting oxycodone. Good luck

    when i asked him a few weeks ago, he looked at me like i was crazy. he then proceeded to tell me that 15 pills was more than i would need. shows what he knows.

    severe back problems run on both sides of my family, and i'm worried it might be something a little more permanent, and he think relaxing will cure the problem.

    i am convinced that doctors don't want to treat you, they just want to treat you long enough to need to come back and pay for another visit.

    Reading a post like this reminds of me how blessed I am to have a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe in a way that addresses my needs fully.

    Go to another doctor. And don't worry about the soma, it really won't do anything (you're worried about soma but want to take percocet?).
    Thing about percocet is, once you start taking it on a regular basis, that's it. Doctors know it too, that's why he gave you 15 (the least I ever got is 30, now they give me hundreds), he didn't want to get you hooked.
    But patients can speak up, I would have never got what I wanted if i didn't. He's probably waiting to see if that worked for you, I mean he started you on 10's, tell him soma doesn't work, and the percocet relieves the pain, he might just give you 60 and forget about the soma. they have to try a lower amount first.
    No, there is no other way to get percocet but to buy it on the street. Class 2, no way in hell without a script.

    I have never gotten pain killers off the street, but from what I hear, people in most places pay one dollar a milligram. So...to get fifteen 10 mg percocets, you'll pay $150.00 most likely. I get ninety 40mg oxycontins and there is NO WAY I could ever come up with the money ($3600.00) to buy off the street.

    I have been going to the same doctor for about 6 years. About 2 years into that, he wasn't too liberal with prescribing EVEN Darvocet. I didn't like it but I couldnt blame him for being careful with what he allowed me to have before he knew me well, especially because you can't see my injury though it is painful all day and keeps me from actively playing all the roles a dad and husband needs to play. Those roles are to work 40+ hours a week, help with household and outdoor responsibilties and be there emotionally for my family. Now that my doc knows me well and that I am not looking to get high, he has no problem treating me adequately because he trusts me. Just takes time sometimes.

    bigjon30 .... "first try a new dock second do not listen to the email response up on this thread lol third of all you can try an online pharmacy i mean that is why we are here isnt it"





    Unless you have a valid prescription online pharmacies are a freakin rip off and scam. If they try to sell you drugs without a current valid script they are online drug dealers. That kind of garbage will get deleted off this forum in a heartbeat. NO John this is NOT a place to find out how to score drugs illegally. God bless.

    extreme1220 the reason your doctor only gave you 15 pills is because you've only been suffering for 2 months. I know that feels like a long time with back pain but it really isn't. He's doing you a favor my not allowing you to develop a physical dependence before it's necessary. If you can get by on half a perc for 6 hours, it doesn't sound that severe.

    Also, there is no way your family doctor could know you have a "severely herniated disc" without doing an MRI. As you don't have insurance and are worried about the bill for a $70 visit, I'm guessing you haven't had one? He's just guessing and doing what family doctors do, wait and see. 70% of people with herniated discs get better on their own so there is a good chance you're in that number. Having a bad back is not like going bald, the fact that other family members have it is irrelevant. I had a bad back due to a herniated disc for 10 years, nobody else in my family does.

    The reality is that I'm sure you could go doctor shopping and find one who is prepared to give you whatever you ask for. You asked for advice, my advice would be to try alternate methods of pain relief for your back before getting yourself hooked on Oxycodone. Read a few threads on here and you'll see what you might be letting yourself in for.

    BTW, if $70 for a doctor visit is a problem, I wouldn't ask for Oxycontin, it's really expensive even with insurance.

    Of course you like the Percocet....everyone does!!! and that's the problem. I started out the same way. 2 yrs later I'm strung out on >>>>>> which is soooo much more difficult to kick than short acting percs or hydros.
    My advice is to find another route to try and deal with your pain. I understand how you feel, as I have my share of medical issues too. Try and find a way to treat it without opiate based meds. The soma is the least of your worries. All meds have side effects. Weve got meds on the market that INDUCE the possible onset of TB, leukemia, and other horrible ailments. I will try to help you find other ways to help with the pain, so keep checking back here. I'm sure you or I can find you something that will work.

    Question No insurance, no hope

    Chronic pain from botched reconstructive orthopedic surgery (feet and ankle), no insurance...what am I to do? I need relief. Never been a drug user. I don't see any other options but even if doctor fees weren't an issue, how do I get a hold of something to bring relief. I'm not about to hit the streets for >>>>>>, nor am I trying to "score" for those of you with the luxury of insurance. Am trying to go through proper channels and get medicare...which takes time and doesn't cover much. The pain is crippling and I'm at my wits end.

    You're not leaving us with any options. The dr is your only choice.

    There are local agencies that will assist you with the cost of your medical treatment if you're truly unable to pay. Check with your county offices for assistance. Hope that helps. God bless.

    dr. is the only way, you can try asking for a higher amount or a non-CII which dr. tend to perscribe more often in a higher amount (darvacet is the step below perc. so i would try that out, chances are your doc would perscribe atleast a months worth at a time)

    explain to your dr you can only afford to come to the dr once a month . you have to see the dr once a month to get a new script . if he is any kind of dr he will work with you knowing you dont have insurance. if you have not had problems abusing meds he shouldnt have a problem . talk to him he may be able you give you some help some drs are able to fill out forms to get scripts at low or no cost at all . they just have to fill out forms .
    will make it thru with gods help

    Hi extreme,

    This is not in regards to attaining pain killers for your pain. This is in regards to the herniated disc. I believe that someone already asked you if you had an MRI or CT scan done to actually prove this was the problem? I know insurance costs are a problem but a blind diagnosis and putting you on pain medication is not a good option.
    I have a herniated disc from a car accident in my L4-L5, as shown through a CT scan. I was in extreme pain since May 2009 because of that, I thought. What it turned out to be was existing lipoma that was growing almost to my sciatic nerve and the herniated disc pushed everything so the lipoma was pushing into the nerve. I was debilitated. I could not work, I could not take care of my kids, I could not clean my house and I was the sole income maker of my home as I am a single mother.

    I now have since had the lipoma removed and I only have a few bad days here and there because of the disc. The most beneficial treatment I have in dealing with the issues surrounding the pain from the disc is physiotherapy, acupuncture, reflexology and massage. Most of these are not covered by medicare. I do not really require pain medications since recovering from the surgery although I had been using an opiate which I am in the process of quitting. It is the other methods that are what works for me.

    Back pain, for the most part, is something you have to learn to deal with and treat without pain medication otherwise you get into a vicious circle of addiction (there are, of course, exceptions that requires surgery but this should never be a first option anyway. I am not trying to dismiss back pain. I just know that it is difficult to diagnose and treat and usually when it is severe, it requires invasive surgery. They have artificial disc replacement surgery in Germany which works wonders for those patients). Also, the majority of pain resulting from a disc is nerve based, which narcotics do not touch and cannot touch as the pain travels on a different receptors. I was prescribed Lyrica which did work as it worked on nerve pain but the side effects were horrible.

    Anyway, my advice really is to seek alternative treatment after you first and foremost get a proper diagnosis. Don't go searching for more painkillers.

    If you know yoga, the cobra pose is wonderful for opening up the vertebrae in your back and easing the pressure on a disc. Also, if you can understand what I am saying, lay on your back with your knees bent. Get someone to tie a belt around their waist and under your bent knees. They lean back slowly, pulling on your legs. This pulls on your back, again opening up the vertebrae.
