I'm not sure I really see a problem with that. What kind of pain is the patient having?

I'm with you on this one DzooBaby!! I don't see a problem either.

Are you concerned about addiction potential of the patient?

Percocet is a very commonly prescribed medication and most likely is what the physician is comfortable writing for.
