“I was told about this medicine about 10 years ago. At the time I could only find the original strength, and quickly found out that I could not take during the day because it knocks me out and I will be sleeping. It is the only medicine that will take away the pain I am having. I had knee surgery twice in a year and the prescription pain medicine I had took away some pain, but with the Percogesic, the rest of the pain went away and I got to sleep. I tried the maximum strength last year for the first time and discovered that it didn't make me sleep. ...actually hyped me up. I discovered it was different than the original strength by having an antihistamine in which I am sensitive too. So now I can take during the day. its the best!”

“I had a very painful tooth abscess that was not relieved with the popular OTC medicines. A pharmacy technician recommended Percogesic and I felt relief within 30 minutes. Pain relief lasted longer as well so I had to take it less often. The only negative was a minor side effect: dry mouth.”

“Out of the vast amounts of different medicines I've taken over the years (most of which has been medicines prescribed by my physicians for severe pain, insomnia, and other chronic issues), this OTC medication is the very best for a number of conditions. I've had migraines for most of my life, but am allergic to prescription drugs for migraines. I've found that Percogesic is ideal for many problems. I have always had a high tolerance for medicines which could sedate a large farm animal, yet it is next to impossible to sedate me. Percogesic, however, has sedative properties, unlike so-called "migraine" medicines, like Excedrin Migraine. The active ingredient in Excedrin is caffeine, which is the last thing I want when I'm trying to escape pain.”
