Why?: Mepergan probably shouldn't be used for chronic pain on a regular basis. It could be used intermittently, however, for severe breakthrough pain. You could probably take it a couple hours after percocet. It would have to be a appropriate dose, also, of course and there may be more appropriate medication for your situation.

Can mepergan be taken 3 hours after percocet, for pain?

Yes, but?: If can be taken like that. Why do you have 2 different medications? Are they from the same doctor? If you only get 3 hours relief from Percocet a higher dose or a susteined release medication may be a better option.
