I was taking 2 10mg oxycontins but the cost is too expensive, the percacets are covered for me unlike the oxycontins im wondering if i started taking 4 percacets would it be the same as taking the 2 oxycontins or would they be worse for me/not as good pain relief? What about the acetaminophen in them is that harmful for long term use? I use them for chornic neck/back pain
you are right about the Acetaminophen it can be harmful but 4 percs 5's a day or 2 perc 10's a day wouldn't be harmful. I have an Aunt who takes 8 perc 5's a day and she has been on them for 6 years now. As long as you take them as directed and whatever concerns you have just ask your doctor or pharmacist.
