What Is Stronger/Longer lasting Than 10mg Percocet
My primary dr has me on 10 mg percocet, 2 every 4 hrs for chronic/severe leg pain but it has lost it's effectiveness. I have appt w/pain mgt clinic on the 18th for the 1st time and am hoping they rx something stronger & definitely something that lasts longer. I haven't slept a full night in almost 2 years due to waking up in pain, taking meds, waiting for them to kick in and waiting to fall asleep again. Does anyone have an educated guess on what they may rx or what works well for this problem? Just curious and very excited at the prospect of having this pain under control. ## There are actually several time released medications that they may choose from. The most commonly used contains Oxycodone, it's called Oxycontin. There's also a time released Morphine available...

percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ...

Pain doctor in Florida that will take me?
Ok. I am at my end and trying to find someone who knows a dr that will take a new patient. I have herniated discs in my neck that pinch a nerve and create horrible pain and burning in my hands. I have 2 small children and work in a career that requires me to use my hands and back 90% of the time. I've had to stop working because of this and I'm at my wits end with all of this. I'm currently seeing our family dr who has been prescribing me 10/325 percocets. She referred me to a pain dr and he wouldn't take me as a new patient. I am so frustrated. I know there has been a really big issue with narcotics and pill mills and all of that. I would just like to know if anyone knows a dr that is willing to write narcotic prescriptions. I have been to physical therapy and I don...

Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
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 ...

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...

The new laws for PA? Any Philly people know of this issue?
Hello...I sadly am on a regime on percocet. I am on a low dose and have been on for a very long time. My primary writes it, usually. I do go to pain management but they do not prescribe narcotics and my primary had been the one to write my percocet for me-I left it at that. Both doctors are aware of my regime and the PM doctor sends his reports to my primary doctor. The PM doctor gave me injections. They only help occasionally it's not cortisone it's something that blocks the nerves? I went to pick up my monthly script when I was told PA laws have changed so I have to find a pain management doctor that will write for narcotics because the primary now only can do so 3 or so times? I was told this at my regular Rite Aid pharmacy. So, what can I do? I don't know if this month i...

Which brand Percocet do you get and where do you get it?
Hello gang: I would like to compile a comprehensive list of the type of percocet you are taking, as well as where you are getting them from. As many people prefer certain brands, I thought this would be helpful. If possible, please add your entry to this thread in the following format. I will begin first, of course. In no particular order :) Manuf. & strengthImprintPurchased FromRegionActivis - 10/325A233TargetSE USAAmneal - 10/325IP204WalmartSE USAAmneal - 10/325IP204WinnDixieSE USAMallinckrodt - 10/325M523CostcoSE USAAlvogen - 10/325230PublixSE USA That is all.

small white round pill 5 on one side blank scored on the other side
I found a small white round pill that is marked with just a 5 on one side and blank, but deeply scored on the other side. ## Hi Bruce, Generic Percocet made by Mallinckrodt, containing 5mgs of oxycodone + 325mgs of acetaminophen is really the only thing that comes remotely close to your description upon doing a google search. This particular tablet is marked with "512" on one side and is scored on the other. For added verification, it is also reported to be approximately 12.00 mm in diameter. Maybe that could help determine if there are other similarities as well. Any chance there could've been more numbers that were potentially faded/smudged off your pill? I hope this helps!
