For Pain "I was given this for what was supposed to be Tempromandicular joint dysfuntion. It worked for four days. Until the pain became so great I went in crying & shaking. Turned out I had to get my tooth extracted & a bone graft. My filling had cracked and the nerve was exposed & dying. Increased me to 10 mg, not only was my mouth pain free after surgery; my two herniated disc & pinch nerves ; my back, neck & shoulder was almost pain free. I was able to do laundry and cook for my family. Best thing ever after 12 years of no relief. I take the smallest dose 5 mg with the option to take 2 if needed."

For Chronic Pain "Percocet is indeed a wonder medicine for pain. I take up to 5 a day and still have some pain, but at least it is dulled to a point of making my life worthwhile. I am in late 70s and doctors have told me that back surgery at my age and my condition (Severe stenosis, herniated disc) is risky. I thought my later years would be enjoyable but back pain has made me lose interest in all the things that I looked forward to, travel, etc. It has placed a heavy burden on my wife to take care of me in my pain mode."

For Pain "I had menisectomy back in 2011, after 2 years I started having bad pain under my knee cap and my lateral side of my knee. Doctor prescribed me Norco 5mg it had little effect so he switched to Percocet 5mg, feels good to sleep at night."

For Pain "My finger was partially amputated and reattached. Vicodin didn't help the pain but Percocet is excellent. I only take a small dose so the pain is not wholly gone, but I don't care once I've taken it. It has made this manageable and I sleep well, too."

For Pain "I was prescribed Percocet 5/325 for a displaced distal radius fracture. It was great at helping to manage the pain until I could have surgery to implant hardware to keep the fracture in place and dealt with post op pain well too. Vicodin was the MD's original choice but leaves me wired and sleepless. I've only used this for 4 weeks and am now down to just one tab at night. The primary side effects I've noticed now are some pretty extreme GI distress but have been told this is normal. All in all, this has been a very painful injury and I'm not sure just what I would have done without consistent pain relief. I do suggest using no more than necessary."

For Pain "I have to say that these pills are a miracle when it comes to pain. The reason I wanted to post my review of Percocet is because of the very, very, vivid dreams. I actually just woke up and had a dream that scared me half to death. I really and truly thought that I saw my wife cheating with another man I could not believe it, you guys have no idea how REAL it felt. So just letting you guys know."

For Chronic Pain "As someone constantly in pain from sports injuries and just general pain from working out 4-5 times a week, minor sciatic recurring pain in my legs, and with no options to discontinue my weekly workout routine Percocet is perfect. Never has Percocet made me loopy, stupid, tired, or out of control. In fact, I feel more energy when I take Percocet, and I am able to not only make it to the gym but get a much more effective workout. As a 36 year old with very low level high blood pressure concerns, family history of heart problems, family obesity history, a history of being over weight myself, and adult ADHD, I have no choice but to workout! Percocet allows me to do so, while working and living a normal life. Thank you Percocet."

For Chronic Pain "3 back surgeries resulting in severe chronic pain. I have been taking Percocet 5/325 for over 10 years. 2 to 3 tabs daily and it enables me to do gardening lawn care and other chores around the house. It really allows me to do more and have a better quality of life."

For Pain "Percocet seemed to be the only pill that would help me while I was dealing with the pain from 2 herniated discs in my back (pre- surgery.) Although it couldn't take even close to all the pain away, it did help significantly. I was taking 10mg/ 4 times a day, and I was still in significant pain, but it worked better than advil, hydrocodone, and dilauded. Now post- surgery, I only take it for breakthrough pain."

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."
