DEPENDS: If prescribed and used short term and appropriately then yes. But that is a lot of ifs. Percocet is a depressant so it will typically slow you down and make you sleepy as well. Some people have an opposite reaction but not a great idea to use long term. Speak with your physician about concerns.
