Reviews for Percocet 5 / 325

BlkButterfly69 · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 20, 2020

“Was prescribed percocet 7.5 right after surgery and that dosage worked just fine, six weeks after surgery, PM Dr. lowers dosage to 5-325 because he didn't want me on that dosage for an extended amount of time. Now there is very little relief. At 6 weeks post-OP; this dose is not strong enough to alleviate my pain. Maybe in another 3 to 4 weeks it will be, but not at the present.”

“My endodontist prescribed me this med before retreatment of root canal for pain relief. I liked it worked within 20 min, but it made me so drowsy it put me sleep and relieved the pain not more than 3 hours. The pain came back exactly after 3 hours but couldn't take it again right away because it would exceed daily max. I switched to ibuprofen 600mg next day and it worked as quickly as that med did, and the effect lasted about 5 hours and it didn't make me drowsy.”

“June 2019 - My body hated it! My doctor prescribed Oxycodone-acetaminophen 5-325 (Percocet) for pain from bulging disc in my hips and thighs and back. The Tramadol I've been taking for osteo-arthritis and foot pain wasn't helping the hips, thighs and back pain. I took only 3 half-tablets in a 10 hour period and after the 3rd half-tab I started feeling horrible. Dizzy, restless to the point of not sleeping, feeling awful. When I did try to sleep I could not relax at all, and the really sad part is - the pain in my back, hips and thighs never went away so I was suffering from the drug and the pain. Not everyone is going to have bad side-effects but these were mine.”

“T/192 white round pill I got at Walgreens is fake, fake, fake not the real oxycodone 5/325 - well it definitely doesn't work!!! I usually get my meds at Walmart and I've have never seen any meds like this.”

“I have a primary brain tumor that has spanned the midline (Glioblastoma multiforme GBM4). My prognoses is I have just 6 months to live. I was prescribed Percocet 5/325 while in the hospital to recover from brain surgery about 1 month ago. I take (4) pills per day (2) at a time. Can I become addicted?”

“I'm 19 and have chronic TMJ joint pain and clicking. I get spouts of breakthrough pain that disables me from talking, eating, and other things that require mouth movements. I recently had the worst pain ever in my jaw and had to go to the ER. Was given Percocet 5/325 and it took away my pain COMPLETELY and helped tremendously. I've tried Vicodin in the past but didn't help my TMJ as much as Percocet does. ”

“Percocet is the only medicine that gives me relief from chronic back pain, sciatica, trochanteric bursitis, fibromyalgia, and restless leg pain. I don't even waste my time on any over-the-counter medicines. Been using on and off for about ten years. I can quit anytime I want without any withdrawal symptoms. I'm very pleased with the way it works for me!”

“When diagnosed with a kidney stone, I was prescribed Percocet 5/325 to manage the pain. A warning that if you don't keep ahead of the pain, it is hard to get back under control. I took a dose 2 hours late and it took 6 hours to get the pain reigned back in. Take it properly and it keeps the pain manageable.”

“I been suffering with migraines for months now. I tried the over the counter meds none ever works. My doctor gave me migraines medicines still never works and I decide to go to the E.R. and they gave me Percocet 5/325 and it was great. It's a great pain killer ever.”

“Highly recommended! No side effects beside the slight dizziness that can be expected with any opiate (always make sure to take it with a bite of food!). Works great, but you'll have to taper off your dosage little by little so you don't experience withdrawal symptoms when you don't need it anymore.”

“This is the only narcotic for pain that does not cause nausea for me. It does make me lightheaded after 20 minutes of taking, and for a few hours after. There is no way I could drive the first 3-4 hours after taking this. I'm currently taking this short term for a pinched nerve.”

“Used Percocet when I got my wisdom teeth out. It made the pain tolerable. But the nausea was worse than the pain would have been. I could not even close my eyes because I was so dizzy and sick to my stomach. I had to call the doctor for another pain killer.”

“When I first began taking Percocet 5/325 for disc protrusion L5-S1 I became very constipated. My doctor prescribed Polyethylene Glycol a powder for oral solution. This is Malox and it has been a God send for me. I am no longer constipated since about 6months ago. Just take it as prescribed and it truly works.”

“It does very well for pain; I have fibromyalgia and it works for me. It allows me to be able to keep up my 4 active boys; ages 15, 10, 7 and 2. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is that is works quick, but it completely kills my appetite. I otherwise love this medicine.”

“Since June 9th of this year I have had to have five total right hip replacements. I've dislocated the hip three times and one part wasn't even put in correct after surgery so I had two of the five done in 1 day. I have found that the Percocets numb the pain enough to get you through with daily function of life, yet not zombied or strung out. I take 4 per day.”

“I have chronic back pain. I take this medication as needed. This medicine has allowed me to go back to enjoying children, gardening, camping, etc. I have small children so this medication really helps with pain while allowing me to be fully functional as well. Doesn't make me loopy or nauseous. This has been a wonder-drug for me.”

“Finally something that works. I was given this for pain expected after surgery. I only needed to use it twice but I have a neurological disorder and it relieved the pain I was experiencing from that. My neurologist had tried me on everything but this for my pain. I use on occasion for when I really can't take the pain any more”

“I was given Percocet to take as needed for kidney stone pain as I have many kidney stones a year. They are very hit or miss when it comes to relieving pain from these stones. Assuming the pain is mild and not ER room worthy, they do the job well at making the pain tolerable, however during the worst stone attacks they do little to nothing, however to be fair during those attacks, generally morphine can't even touch the pain.”

“Dr gave these to me for my gallstones until I could have surgery. I kept having attacks every couple days. Took 2 and it saved the day! I had a baby 3 months ago so being able to take something, stay active, and alert was important to me. I'm supposed to be on similar meds for my other conditions but I am not one for medications as they either work really well or not at all.”

“I am recovering from last weeks shoulder surgery (scope without repair). My medical team used a nerve-block as they performed the procedure. I was sent home the same day with percocet 5/325 as my pain reliever. My doctor's nstruction was to: "make sure you get the percocet into your system before the nerve-block wears off." I complied and my pain is managed well.”

“Feb 2018 I don't like taking strong meds. I developed horrible upper thigh leg spasms from pinched nerve in back. Couldn't sleep terrible pain. Doctor gave me Oxycodone 325...wonderful meds. No pain after 1/2 tab. Yes dizziness. Take with Metamucil to avoid constipation. Drink plenty of fluids. No other side effects other than a little tinnitus. Good Job Researchers . Finally a decent pain killer that doesn't rot your stomach!! Like Advil and stronger than Extra Strength Tylenol.Wish Provincial Government would cover it though.”

“I used this for post operative pain. It controlled pain to the point that was comfortable but not completely pain free. I was taking 2 tabs every 4 hours as needed. My only side effect has been ears roaring, not ringing, full ROAR waving up and down. It is a bit unnerving but better then the pain.”

“I had ankle surgery, Doctor wanted to give me 10 mg Percocets, but I asked for 5 mg instead. I had wisdom teeth removed before, was given the 10 mg and they didn't make me feel right. The 5 mg worked wonders. I still felt pain, but I didn't care about the pain, and I was still alert enough to get my child ready for school in the morning, but it did make me a little tired. Pills work different for everyone. If you take pills often, then lower dosages might not work for you. I refuse to take any medication, even aspirin, unless it's a dire situation. I try to keep my body as pure as possible so I do not become dependent. This is why the low dosage works so well for me.”
