For Chronic Pain "I'm 51 years old and have been dealing with chronic pain last 20 years. Put on MsContin 60mg 3 times day, it's long lasting but pain sill comes through. Dr. added 10/325 Percocet for break through pain. Made my life liveable. Give it a 10."

For Chronic Pain "I have had migraines for over 25 yrs as well as fibromyalgia. I take Percocet 5-325 which has been the only thing that keeps me a person not just hiding in my room from the pain but I have started to notice that I have needed to take 2 pills ever 4-6 hrs instead of just one. But this pill has been a life saver."

For Chronic Pain "I have arthritis in most joints, especially in spine, degenerative disc disease & now spondylolisthesis (vertebrae slipping onto next vertebrae -bone against bone. MD just upped my Opana from 10 to 20 mg, 5mg Xanax 3x day to calm me (no change) & switched from Oxy IR 10mg 6-8 hrs to Percocet 7.5 6-8 hrs due to pain increase. What a difference! I feel able to do the things I like/need to do. Advice to anyone taking narcotics -do NOT mix with alcohol-you'll overdose, don't take more than directions-you'll just build tolerance & they won't work. If your medicine stops working as mine did, don't take more, tell your Doc, a different combination can change everything!"

For Pain "I have a high tolerance for meds. Percocet 10/325 mg takes my pain level from a 7/8 to a 3/4. I have been on this medicine for over 2 years and it allows me to continue to workout and move around doing my job."

For Pain "I had a re-treatment of an infected root canal and after 4 days of increasing pain I had finally hit my breaking point on Sunday night. I was crying and shaking uncontrollably and was at my wits end! This was the MOST excruciating pain I have EVER had in my life, I never thought a tooth could hurt so bad. I went to an emergency dentist who opened my tooth up and cleaned it out again, and prescribed me antibiotics & 10mg Percocet. After taking the Percocet that night I finally slept after 4 days of sleepless nights. This pain medication is a GOD SEND!"

For Pain "I had 3 impacted wisdom teeth removed under general anesthetic. The oral surgeon prescribed me Percocet. Percocet was a bit too intense for me, even though it did rid of the pain. It was intense because it made me dizzy and drowsy. I found myself having to lay down most of the time when on it, as I also felt that my heart rate increased. I think that because I'm already a worrier, the side effects left me panicky."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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. "

For Pain "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."

For 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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

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

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."

For Pain "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."
