... day to Percocet 10/325 4 times a day isn't that basically the same relief I was getting before I'm still in a lot of pain and on days have had to take 6 percocets to relive my pain. He put me on the Percocet for better relief so isn't taking the 6 norcos a day more?
Morg00 Yes Kaismama is right if you are still in pain no matter what you are taking you must let your pain Dr know about it. I just had 3 weeks ago to call mt pmd so that I could come in and I get trigger point injections that help me for a couple of weeks but it is for the times like now when the weather is changing that I have really bad spikes in my neck and shoulders. Yes the oxycodone is stronger that is what I take for my breakthroughs... be careful with taking alot of the 325s cause that is Tylenol and that is not good for your liver at extreme levels. Take care
If I were you & your livers sake I'd ask your doctor to switch you to 10mg oxycodone WITH NO TYLONO!! The pure oxycodone is MUCH BETTER FOR YOUR LIVER & your still getting the 10mg of oxcycode without the damage to your liver espesially since your on a decent amount of O.C. Good luck & I'm on something much stronger which now that I think of it maybe suggest 2mg Hydromorphone & instead of having to take O.C 6 times a day you could cut the # of times you have to take it because Dilaudid/Hydromorphone is 2.5x stronger then O.C.& they make 2mg 4mg & 8mg strengths. Hope this helps & most doctors will tell you any TYLONOL just isn't good for your liver espesially in chronic pain patients.
I've been in a very similar situation to you. My doctor gave me both Percocet 10/325 if the Norco 10/325 weren't providing enough relief. In my experience Percocet did NOT help nearly as much as the Norco. I don't know if my body prefers it and is used to now. I also tried the Oxycodone 15mg, and I couldn't function on them. I wish you luck with managing your pain. From what I've learned each person reacts differently to medication.
