... disc. I am in a lot of pain and can hardly move, I was taking vicodin but had to take more than twice a day due to the pain and I am out now. Can I ask for percocet so I can take it less often than vicodin? I also get constipated with vicodin and I don't with percocet. How do I go about asking the doctor this and not get judged for taking my vicodin more than twice a day because I hurt myself again at school?
