Doctors Who Prescribe Pain Killers In Philadelphia
968 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 ...

percocet dosage limits 5/325
148 Replies RSS
I am taking the percocet 512 white tablets 5mg/325 for severe back pain due to degenerating disc(s). I have been told 1 pill every 8 hours, but find the pain so excruciating after about 5 hours that I cannot even stand... even to use the bathroom or shower. My MD cannot get me into a specialist until August, but I am having real stress here. Will it be harmful for me to take more than the one tablet per 8 hours?? ## your comment seems strange to me brcause my MD prescribed me some of same percocet and on the bottle it says take 1 or 2 tablets every 4 or 6 hours according to pain or even as needed for pain. I have been taking 2 every 9 or 10 hours Lately, though, I realize that if I do not take a pill I start to feel pain in my shoulders, and my chest is agitated. So I just stopped takin...

can percocet AND Flexeril be taken together
39 Replies RSS
I take Percocet and Flexeril and was told by the doctor to wait a couple of hours before I take one or the other. What are the possible side effects, positive and negative. ## More than likely he advise to space them apart because they can both cause central nervous system depression. This can cause your breathing to slow and be shallower, a slower heart rate and etc. Using them both together can also worsen some other side effects, that they both can cause, such as drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. He is probably trying to minimize this for you. If you use them as he instructed you to, you may be able to get better pain control. Many doctors prescribe a muscle relaxant, like Flexeril, along with other pain management medications. Reducing the tenseness in the muscles can help lessen th...

Which Pharmacies Carry Yellow Percocet 10
29 Replies RSS
does anyone know of a pharmecy that carries the yallow 10-325 percocets?they work alot better for me then the white ones but i havent had much luck finding them. ## No one is really going to be able to answer your question, without having at least a general idea of where you are located. Most websites, including this one, are accessible from almost any country in the world, so if someone from Pakistan knows a pharmacy that carries them, this will likely not help you, if you are in the U.S. In addition, you may also want to provide more information, such as the markings on the tablet or the manufacturer, since the colors do not actually mean anything. Can you please post back with more information? ## I live in Bronx New York I'm trying to find a pharmacy that carries the 10/325 Perc...

What Is Stronger/Longer lasting Than 10mg Percocet
21 Replies RSS
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...

Getting Prescriptions From 2 Different Doctors For Pain Meds But They Are Conditions
421 Replies RSS
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 ...

percocet vs norco
126 Replies RSS
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. {Edited for safety} 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 to ask me any questions u have about Perscription M...

Take 1-2 Percocet every 4-6 hours as needed for pain
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed percocet 5mg as a post surgery medication. It is labeled to take 1-2 every 4-6 hours as needed for pain, 60ct. How long should it last? ## Hmmm, I'll try doing the math two ways. First, I'll assume that you are taking the lowest possible dose, which is 1 every 6 hours. And then I'll run the numbers assuming you are taking the highest possible dose, which is 2 every 4 hours. Here we go: 1 tablet every 6 hours = 4 tablets per day. 60 tablets divided by 4 = 15 days. 2 tablets every 4 hours = 12 tablets per day. 60 tabs / 12 = 5 days. So your answer is between 5 and 15 days depending on how high and how frequent your dose is. Can someone please check my math?? (LOL) Hope you have a quick recovery! Is your doctor or nurse recommending anything specific?

off white oval pill NC imprint
10 Replies RSS
I have this white oval pill that has NC imprint and I was told it's Percocet 30mg but it kind of sound suspicious so please help ## One thing is for certain right off the bat, and that is there's no such thing as a 30mg Percocet tablet. The highest available dosage contains 10mg of Oxycodone + 325mg of Acetaminophen. I also haven't come across any specific details on a pill with that description, which makes me a little suspicious as well seeing that they lied and said it was a 30mg Percocet. If I were you I would throw the pill away and just be done with it. However a lab analysis would probably be your best bet for identifying its true contents. Does anyone else here recognize this pill as being something different? ## Nature's Cure. It's basically collagen and bio...

I read that endo was discontinuing percocet
Post a Reply
What gives? They jacked price to $999. I only use 2 a day for breakthrough pain but can't take generic. Then I read they were going to discontinue Percocet & their stocks aren't doing well. Maybe if they lowered their prices, more people could afford. I take Oxycontin 20mg every 8 for chronic bladder pain. I try to stay away from more than one Advil a day because I'm anemic & it makes me worse. I haven't increased Oxycontin in 2 years. I also have severe fibromyalgia.
