Prescription says 1 to 2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours . 30 count. How long should they last?

At that rate, around 7 days would be a fantastic result; ~5 days is a more likely estimate.

Just ha surgery yesterday. And in a great deal of pain. And have another script for 60 count percocet.

Iff you've just had surgery, I'm glad that you had a script for more. I can't imagine surgery without pain relief. Having a hip done was agony but it had been broken for almost 3 years.

Just be careful as opiates WILL show their addictive properties after 3 - 5 days; at 3 weeks if you have to stop them then, you will hopefully feel like you just have severe flue for 4-5 days and then you wake up one morning feeling almost reborn, certainly delivered (that is not wishing it upon you I have to say). A common complaint is people complaining about the addictive nature of some medications and that the Doctor didn't warn them. (always read the product insert or google: product insert drug name or just look up your meds here.

My pain doctor weaned me off opiods using Butrans patches 2x 20microgram/Hr then 2 x 10 miicrogm/Hr and finally 2 x 5 microgram/Hr patches. 6 scheduled weeks that I do in 3
