i need to take some percocet but am terrified to take 40mg so can i cut it down?will the fast realase hurt me? i dont want something bad to happen. but i need pain relife despretly.
I am by no means a Doctor or medical provider but I do know people who cut their perocet in half to stretch them out and I have never heard of any issues with doing this. Isn't it just a round type pill, almost aspirin like? And I do not know how you would cut a 40 mg pill down to 5 mgs anyhow... one fourth would be 10 mgs and cutting any smaller than that would wind up being just lit'l crumbles so if you don't want to take a strong pill like 40 mgs why are you not asking the doc for something less strong?? The question just rings a little odd but I suppose it could be serious... so if you are that concerned (and thats a good thing) please contact your doctor. Good health & God Bless
