I am prescribed oxycodone 30 mg tablets every month. I ran out a few days early and I just wanted to know if I could take 10 mg Percocet in the same quantity to keep my levels up?

The problem with taking so much Percocet is the Acetaminophen in it. The FDA lists the maximum recommended daily dose it to no more than 3,000mgs and taking 9 Percocet in a day would come really close to that.

You might be okay to do this, if your doctor approves, but generally they don't like you to take more than 2, at once.

The FDA classifies this medication 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.

When do you see your doctor for a new prescription?

Yes BOO, take three Percocet 10, each Percocet only has 10mg of the oxycodone IR (instant release). Just be mindful of the Tylenol. I think it's no more than 2400mgs in a 24 hour period. And for real, that s*** anit gonna kill you, I use to get tylenol with codeine from Canada. The pills were sold over the counter just like it was advil or drawles. They had 8mg codeine and 300mg of tylenol per tablet. The Tylenol didn't kill us then, but I very recently was told I have cirrhosis of the liver and and I can't help but wonder if doing that s*** has something to do with it. So you might not wanna go over the 2400 dose. And NO we didn't take them to feel high, we took them because we hurt.

I seem to hurt more taking Oxycodone 10 mg a 48 than when I took Percocet 10-325. Why and what is the difference in the two? Is 10mg a48 suppose to be better or stronger?
