“Unbelievable relief from post-op back surgery pain. Was DC'ed from morphine pump due to side effects (hallucinating, explosive agitation) and 10 mg of percocet every 4 hours made the fresh 7 inch incision in my lower back "go away". Warning, I did also hallucinate on this medication and it was very unpleasant. But more tolerable than morphine and with top notch pain relief.”

“I'm 24 and I work in a -20 freezer selecting orders for groceries stores. Constant bending and lifting while briskly walking. 3 times a week in 8 hours I'll take tramadol and one or two 10/325 Percocet. That cocktail gets me going. Loosens me up, No pain in back our feet and it numbs the cold out. I could run for 9 hours with it.”

“I like using Percocet for my back pain. It helps more than other pain pills that I've taken before. Lortab didn't do anything or Ultram. I do have a scheduled epidural for my back this week. So, hopefully when, I get that shot I might not need to take as many Percocet! I also, have to take Zanaflex, Muscle Relaxer's twice a day for my spasms. They just make you really tired. So, if you have to drive I wouldn't take the muscle relaxers. ”

“I've had two knee replacement's since 2005 (same knee) and two surgery's on foot for Mortons Neuroma. I've had nothing but problems with both and have been in moderate to severe pain since 2005. After my Doc tried several medicines for pain the only thing that has worked was Percocet. I've been on it for several years however I quit for a month and a half and now I'm back on it. I'm taking 3 a day and It's absolutely amazing how I can work and function normally while on this. I also believe that not only does it relieve the pain but I'm alert and have so much more energy and I'm able to remain productive at 60 years old. I sleep like a baby at night too. Great Stuff.”

“Percocet is the absolute best pain medication out there. The overall feeling of warmth and well being that it gives me, along with pain relief, is amazing and truly priceless. ”

“This medicine is an amazing painkiller. When it wears off, my teeth (wisdom teeth) hurt. I just take Percocet and wah lah, no more pain.”

“I had a total knee replacement at the age of 32. I have to say that I was in nasty pain 8 out of 10 and Percocet helped me tremendously. I can actually sleep now and rehab more effectively. I wake up every couple of hours at night and have some cold sweats as well along with cotton mouth but I think its worth the pain relief.”

“I've taken Percocet for several short periods in My life such as fall resulting in herniated lumbar disc, very severely abscessed tooth that required surgery, post op for compound fracture of wrist, etc. Most recently, for a post-op pain reliever (ankle surgery). I'm currently on this medicine. I've been prescribed the 7.5-325. Its a wonderful pain reliever. Causes minor itchiness all over and significant drowsiness (these are normal side effects) Bothersome, but well worth relieving horrible pain! I do not get sleepless like I do on Vicodin. Actually, I am lulled to sleep when on this medicine. Not only does it successfully control significant pain, it also gives the user a feeling of peaceful serenity.”

“I am 23 with fibromyalgia and various post competitive gymnastics injuries. Daily I take Concerta, tramadol, Lexapro and Ambien to sleep. I take Percocet and Flexeril as needed for my bad days. Percocet is wonderful but it is obvious to me why people become addicted to it so I am careful not to take it unless the pain is really bad. It does affect mood, people are saying it should be used as an antidepressant but that is ridiculous. Yes, Percocet makes you feel great mentally and physically, but the second you stop taking it you will no longer have that feeling of wellbeing. Antidepressent get you back to a normal level that you can maintain after you come off it.”

“Excellent pain relief, without constipation associated with the use of narcotics. I didn't find that I got too drowsy from it either.”

“Percocet has been a life changer for me with my sciatic nerve condition. I can now work and support my family while my condition is diagnosed and hopefully treated well. I agree some form of Percocet should be considered for depression.”

“I had been taking Lortab 10/500 for several months for pain. It literally stopped working. I just had my 9th back surgery. All my other surgeries I bounced back quickly. This last one I haven't. The pain has increased drastically. I can barely walk. I still can't lie on my back or right side. Until yesterday. My Dr. gave me Percocet 10/650 and I can tell a huge difference. I actually slept last night. Now I have to have another MRI to make sure this back surgery hasn't messed up. Percocet really helps.”

“I am 19 with severe testicular pain, at first the doctor prescribed meloxicam which helped but made me sick, then he put me on Vimovo, didn't help at all and I was up all night vomiting. I told him I needed something better. At first he was reluctant to give me Vicodin or Percocet. He later prescribed me Percocet 5/325 and man, that stuff really works, it makes you feel like yourself, no pain, no anxiety, no depression, it is a miracle for me. You must stop as the pain goes and please only take as directed by your doctor as it can become very addicting. A few downsides are: tiredness, nausea (sometimes) and you want to talk a LOT.”

“I had a double lung transplant and was prescribed this medicine. It did well for the pain, but also gave me mental improvements, as I have seen others have experienced as well. Not only did it get rid of the pain but it also lessened my depression, decreased my anxiety, and made me feel more relaxed and like my normal self. I was more positive, more productive and life was just overall better.”

“Taking 7.5/325 for Shingles pain across back and chest, going into 3rd week post-diagnoses. Takes the edge off but comes nowhere close to relieving the pain. Nothing does so far.”

“I've recently been diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear, osteoarthritis in my neck, and peripheral neuropathy. I'm also waiting to get surgery for herniated discs L-5 to S-1. I've been on Lortab and really couldn't tell it was doing anything. I had become very depressed due to the severe pain I've been experiencing. The doctor gave me Percocet and at first I was very hesitant to take it. But now that I am it has made such a huge difference. I've only been on it for a few days but for the first time in a very long time I was able to go to sleep last night and stay asleep for more than 3 hours at a time. My shoulder that has the tear is still painful but it is bearable now. I really hope that it has the antidepressant effect too.”

“Am 48 yo woman. Have Fibromyalgia, Myofacial Pain Syndrome, Diabetes, Neuropathy, 4 joint surgeries (tendon reconstructions on both elbows, and two surgeries on left ankle for complete rupture of Brevis tendon, recent fractured L2 vertebrae, and degenerative arthritis in fracture area and neck. Also lost my father and daughter both in the past 24 months. On Vicodin for daily pain and 10/325 Percocet for flare-ups. Tried morphine with terrible side effects so had to quit. For really rough days the Percocet works well. I take with 4mg Zofran. Lifts depression because people feel less depressed when pain is relieved! May also work due to other reasons. Always take on empty stomach because when I take with food I get less effect.”

“I had been prescribed Percocet after 2 failed back surgeries. I now have permanent nerve damage in sciatica and right leg. I found it to be the only thing that worked for me. My primary doctor prescribed for me for about 6 months and then released me from the practice because she felt that she couldn't prescribe for someone with chronic pain. I had to stop taking them immediately as I haven't been able to get another doctor. The withdrawal was noticeable but only lasted about a day. Both doctors referred me to Pain Management but my insurance doesn't cover it. I have been to 2 doctors that have turned me away because my case is "too complicated" and I now I have to live with NO quality of life. Percocet to me was what made me normal.”
