doctors prescribe pain medication

Hi there, I have spinal stenosis, 2 herniated discs, and five tears in different discs, don't want surgery, looking for a doctor that will prescribe Percocet in the orange county, CA area ## Hi, Nancy! How are you? The main issue here is trying to find a doctor that will prescribe any specific medication. Technically, any doctor with a medical license can legally prescribe any medication, but when you are trying to look for a specific one, they usually view that as drug seeking behavior and won't even let you get in the door for an appointment. Learn more Percocet details here. If you require such a drug for long-term treatment of chronic pain, under the new regulations, you'll have to see a pain management specialist. And in regards to that, if surgery is an option that cou...

PERCOCET M357 VS PERCOCET 512
18 Replies RSS
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERCOCET M357 AND PERCOCET 512 ## M357 is NOT percocet, it is a different class of narcotic pain reliever called lorcet or hydrocodone. it is a generic version and not as strong as a perc 5/12 ## That is correct, M357 contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Hydrocodone, so this is not an equivelent to Percocet, but, as stated above, a generic for Vicodin or Lortab. It is still a narcotic pain reliever, but not as strong as those containing Oxycodone. This pill marked 512 contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Oxycodone and is a generic for Percocet. Side effects are similar for both and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

i was told the pill 1p 109 is percocet
1 Reply RSS
I was told that the pill 1p 109 was a generic percocet ## Hello, Velma! How are you? This tablet is actually a generic for Lortab or Norco. It is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. Is there anything else I can help with?

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
734 Replies RSS
Hi, My current doctor has decided that it would be best to stop my monthly prescription for 30mg percocets. I have chronic back pain from skiing injuries and other sports related problems. I have never abused or taken more than was suggested. I never got "high" and was always able to work and interact with clients in a positive way. Now without the medication, the pain is becoming a distraction. Does anyone know a doctor who isn't scared to prescribe common pain killers. They are produced for a reason, but recent uptake in illegal abuse has made doctors uneasy with long term prescriptions? I live in the Philadelphia area (main line) but I am familiar with the greater Philadelphia metro area. Thank you and kind regards. ## I think you may be confusing medication names and if ...

v one side yellow pill 10 325 on the other side

Yellow oval pill with v one side 10/325 on other side ## Hello, John! How are you? Can you please double check the imprint and post back? The 10/325 is used on several Percocet tablets that contain 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, which the FDA classifies as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. However, I am not aware of, nor can I find anything that lists one with a V and the 10/325 on it. Is anyone else familiar with this tablet?

I have major back issues,mi have no insurance, so I can't afford the MRI I need. My DR has prescribed me percocets 10/325 every 4-6 hours along with flexeral 10mgs 1 or 2/day, my DR has recently prescribed 300mgs a day of neurontin and 500mgs of naproxen 2x's/day. None of it helps. Does anybody have any suggestions I could take to my DR of what could help. I'm in constant pain, can hardly sleep and the muscle spasms occurring more often elevating my pain level. Any suggestions would be of great help, thanks everybody! ***Also I have always had a high tolerance for any medications, which my dr does know about. I just need some advice and help and this site seems to have good people that have actual good advice. ## The Flexeril is really a very mild muscle relaxant, so you mig...

is it ok to start percocet after i only took one 8mg subutex hours ago
1 Reply RSS
I took a total of 12 milligrams of subutex. Insufflating a quarter at a time. My last dose was 16 hours ago. Can i go ahead and take percocet? ## Hello, Kriket! How are you? You'll just be wasting the Percocet. The Buprenorphine in Subutex has a stronger hold on your opiate receptors than the Oxycodone would, though it has a weaker opiate effect, so it's basically going to cling there and prevent the Oxycodone from having any effect, until it fully processes out of your body. The FDA lists these medications as being narcotic analgesics, which carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

percocet 100 mg
1 Reply RSS
Is there a 100mg percocet ## Hello, Niky June! How are you? No, there is no such dosage available. Percocet contains Oxycodone coupled with Acetaminophen and the maximum dosage of it that is available is 10mgs of Oxycodone with 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. There are, however, other doses available of Oxycodone without Acetaminophen. Is there anything else I can help with?
