Call 911: Even if this is not a deadly dose, which it could be, it's a suicide gesture and needs to be addressed as such. Your roommate will be grateful in a year.

Can percocet pills be crushed or chewed?

Not recommended.: You should never chew or crush any pill unless it is specifically formulated to be chewed. You will get a larger release of the medicine in many cases than you desire all at once. Many of these pills are formulated to be released slowly into the body so don't chew or crush.
