For Pain "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?"

For Pain "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."

For 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."

For Chronic Pain "The longer I take it the less effective it is. It actually makes me feel alert and nervous rather then sleepy and calm. Since the pain is still there I want to take a larger dose, especially at bed time. If I don't fall asleep right away, I began to feel anxious and wide awake. "

For Chronic Pain "My Doctor changed my medicine from hydcodone to this. Does not alleviate my pain. Makes me feel lightheaded a little for an hour. Cannot sleep, or get any relief from the pain. This medicine is supposed to be stronger then hydrocodone. I suspect there is very little oxycodone in these tablets, not 5 mg as stated. My daughter, who has access to a spectroanalyzer in her lab, is going to compare this medicine with similar brand. As for myself I can tell you, this is either one of those taper drugs, or just plain junk."

For Chronic Pain "I have lower back pain due to stenosis/arthritis. Also, I have a birth defect in which c4 / 5 are fused. Arthritis (severe), in my left hip/knee. Toss in fibromyalgia, and the pain is almost intolerable. Before taking this med, my life had been confined to either sitting or lying down. Grocery shopping was out of the question, without the use of the motorized shopping carts. It was so bad, that I just thought, "Why am I still living, this is no life at all." After a few different pain meds, that failed to work, my doctor prescribed this med and it has been a wonder drug for me! Now, I can walk through stores PUSHING a cart! My Pain level has gone from 8, down to 2 or 3 using this. Please, keep it available to the people with severe pain!"

For Chronic Pain "I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, it took about two years for the full debilitating affect to kick in. Eventually I was in constant pain and could barely walk. I had a lumbar laminectomy which did not work to relieve the pain. After complaining to my Doctor, he finally prescribed Pecocets. They were nothing short of a miracle in terms of pain relief with minor side effects"

For Pain "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."

For Chronic Pain "I have had back pain for many years and percocet has helped but has grown weeker over the years. I've asked for a higher dose but no. The Dr are afraid of treating their patients according due to being put under the radar.. But I say! If you're treating the symptoms and the patient why do you have to worry?"

For Chronic Pain "Zero relief from back pain. But it provides a lot of relief for kidney stones, post surgery pain, bone fracture pain. But lower back pain (non kidney stone pain), nothing."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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. "

For Pain "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."

For 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."
