Reviews for Percocet

lan. September 24, 2009

“It's good pain killer but do not use to much. Always talk to your doctor if you start talking to much.”

“I have been on and off Percocet for the last 10 years since diagnosed with Endometriosis. It's the only thing that helps when the pain gets really bad. I have tried many other NSAIDs to no avail. I only take 1/2 when absolutely required. After surgery 1/2 every 6 hours. Be sure to take them with food to avoid feeling ill or light headed and out of control. I didn't like the idea of taking a narcotic, but they work, but you do need to respect them. They do have a time and place for pain.”

“I had bi-lateral ankle surgery in March and was put on Demerol, which at the time helped. Was given Vicodin for break through pain. Found out I was allergic to the anchor that was put in so had a second surgery in July. This time again given Demerol and Vicodin but did NOT help. Ended up in hospital with shots of Dilaudid. Doctor then gave me Percocets for breakthrough pain and it worked wonders! I could sit in my recliner and not just cry in pain. Now I'm back in a cast having more ankle issues (same ankle) and the doctor put me on icodins at first but at last visit since pain was still high and blood pressure was up (I usually run very low) he prescribed me Percocet 5/325. They are life savers! The pain went from 10 to 4 tops!”

“I have recently been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. My Doctor first prescribed muscle relaxers (Flexeril and Skelaxin) to no avail. He then tried me on some anti-inflammatories, no help. Then, he gave me Tramadol. No help. I saw him the other day and he gave me Percocet 5/325. This gave me lots of relief. The nagging pain is still there but I can do a little more than I could on the other medications. There is no way I could do physical therapy with it.”

“To anyone who has used or will use Percocet, for the nausea have your doctor put you on a pill called Zofran this will help with the nausea, they give it to cancer patients for vomiting. I am a huge believer in the mental help Percocet gives as well as the pain management. Had Gall bladder surgery in May 09 and after trying Vicodin, Oxycontin, Diluadid, Ultram, Percocet was the ONLY one that helped me with the pain. Eat before taking and drink plenty of fluids. This will cause severe constipation so a stool softener may be needed. Best medicine I have ever taken.”

“I have been on this dosage since 1/09 due to 2nd and 3rd degree burns to my scalp and ears. I take 2 pills 3x per day. It has been a God send! The only side effect I have noticed is pain intensifies for about 15 minutes after I take it, then it subsides. Thank goodness I have a great Doctor who is not afraid to prescribe opioids. She realizes I need it, not want it. I now feel like doing more than laying on the couch curled up in agony.”

“I'm a hemophiliac with severe arthritis and due for a right hip and left knee replacement. My entire life I've lived with chronic pain from bleeding episodes to my degenerative joint disease. I've been prescribed liquid morphine, Dilaudid, Vicodin, morphine sulfate, Tylenol 3's, Oxycontin, pretty much everything they've got. But the only thing that truly does help me function in my everyday life without getting to loopy is Percocet. I give it a 10.”

“I was diagnosed with bursitis of the hip. I was in severe pain and went to go see multiple doctors before even being diagnosed. I was given Vicodin, Tramadol and an Anti inflammatory drug. None of them did the trick. After months of being in pain and to continuously argue with my Doctor that those prior pills were working he prescribed me Percocet. It works wonders. The first encounter with it made me feel really nauseous but once I was able to lie down it was amazing. I don't feel as though I am "high" on it but do feel as though I am back to my fun loving self. My libido has increased and I am sleeping much better. I work the graveyard shift and it's hard enough to sleep and this puts and keeps me asleep. Awesome to say the least.”

“I had breast augmentation and was prescribed this. It took the pain away, and made me energetic and productive, but it also gave me appetite loss and gave me frequent upset stomachs. If I took it close to bedtime, it would keep me up at night. I frequently would get dizzy and lightheaded. I liked it for the initial energy.”

“I had rotator cuff surgery and I was prescribed percocet after telling the doctor that I have a sensitive stomach to most medications. The medicine took the pain away, but I only take half a pill of the 5mg and my stomach gets so upset and try not to vomit. I can't get in a car without getting car sick. The doctor has now prescribed me Darvocet, lets hope this works better.”

“I have been on percocet for around 3 years. I have severe degenerative disc disease. It sure is a wonder drug because it really makes a difference in my every day life. I give it a 10!”

“I am 26 years old and have a 4 year old. I wad diagnosed with scoliosis in my upper and lower spine at 13 years of age, and recently 5 bulged disc, sciatica, and a severe pinched nerve along with the sciatic. At first my doctor gave me a script for Percocet and I was able to function. She now will not prescribe the Percocet again, even though the pain clinic has recommended it for me. I also work 80 hours a week through the excruciating pain. ”

“Taking Percocet after total knee replacement surgery. It is a great aid to relieving pain. I was taking 2 tablets every 4 hours in the beginning, however, now its only when needed for pain and I only take 1 tablet. Percocet is amazing.”

“I take Percocet for moderate pain, because I had liver transplant. Only problem is there may be minor danger to other organs, but with a proper dosage I will be just fine .”

“Took Percocet for 3 days after losing a couple of finger tips to a slamming door. It certainly helped with the pain, but made me nauseous, dizzy and drowsy. I had to lie down most of the time I took this drug. I got off it as soon as I could.”

“I had been in a severe accident in February 2007 and had compartment syndrome in the accident. I have a right foot drop. I find the mix of Gabapentin and Percocet work very well with the nerve pain as well as lower right leg pain.”

“I sustained a lower back injury in January of 2008. Obviously I was in severe pain, so I went to the ER. The attending doctor who saw me prescribed Percocet for the pain. This is an absolutely amazing pain medication. The worst part is that I still have back pain that is still undiagnosed, and being only 25, find it almost impossible to find a doctor to prescribe this to me. Even though it is the only thing that works. I have tried Ultram, Vicodin and several other narcotics, but this is the only one that works. ”

“Have been taking Percocet 'as needed' for several years, due to neck and shoulder pain from car accident. It does relieve the pain for sure, but I am very cautious about becoming addicted. For me, Percocet gives me a burst of energy, and also a feeling of euphoria. I never take it after 4pm, since it keeps me awake at night.”

“I take Percocet and it has done wonders for me. Before I was unable to stand for more than 10 minutes due to chronic back pain and now I do a normal work load without taking frequent breaks. It works great but does make me nauseated at times.”
