How Long After Taking A Percocet Can I Have A Beer
I take Percocet 325/10 up to 4 times a day PRN for chronic pain. I'd like to have a beer tonight. How long should I space the med and alcohol out?
Are you able? Yes: Should you is another story. I tell my patients for whom I prescribe opioids that they should NOT drink on the medication. The combination can cause unpredictable interactions. It is particularly important not to drive when you are prescribed opiates, at least until you know how they effect you, and this goes double when alcohol is combined. I wonder if alcohol is a problem for you. Avoid it. ...Read more
I am taking percocet 10 mg for ongoing pains that have been ongoing for almost a year I cut them in half, so 5mg I believe. I take a half every 6 hours, and not before bedtime. I am not an addict nor do I abuse them, but I wonder if there will be any long
My opinion: Short acting opiates are not a good option in my opinion for long term pain issues. In some cases, perhaps as much as 1/3 of patients they can actually start to make pain worse. It is called neurosensitization. Try to find a pain management specialist that will give you options other than ongoing short acting opioids. Members of the american academy of pain management are a good bet. ...Read more
How long will it take for 3 percocet 7.5mg to be out of my urine if I don't ever take them and if I urinate frequently?
Probably clear: Typically this drug is not detectable by the urine drug screen after 4 to 5 days.

No: You should be ok taking both together. Reglan (metoclopramide) and Percocet work via two separate mechanisms. A possible concern is that taking both might cause some constipation or stomach upset, so I'd watch for those symptoms. You should be able to address the constipation with a fiber supplement. ...Read more

We use a variety of medications to treat rls. In extreme cases we sometimes use pain medications (e.g. Percocet).
If you are currently taking percocet, the medication could be suppressing RLS symptoms. If you suddenly stop taking the medication, RLS symptoms will recur (possibly the same night) and continue nightly.
Please consult with a local sleep specialist. ...Read more
Can you take percocet and klonopin (clonazepam) together? If not, how long do you have to wait between the two? Having anxiety from taking percocet that possible?
Not good together: They can both cause drowsiness, dizziness, impairment in coordination and slowing of respiration. If you need an anxiolytic you should consider a switch to a shorter acting benzodiazepine such as Ativan or xanax (alprazolam) instead of klonopin. If you are not suffering from severe pain consider a switch to Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen from the percocet. ...Read more
How does percocet make you forget to breath? How long does the effects last? I'm on 7.5mg and that makes me anxious if I could forget to breath
Not true: You do not forget to breath. That is an involuntary and not a voluntary act. There are centers in the body that control breathing but you consciously do not. Don't worry. ...Read more
Hi, I've taken percocet 10/325 for the better part of 3 weeks and average of 3-4 daily. Stopping now, how long until it'll be out of my urine? Thanks!
Agree though:: Predicting when urine would be negative is a bit uncertain. These tests stays positive longer when there has been longer use. I feel weird since it sounds like you are trying to beat a test. As answer wisely notes above, if prescribed, you wouldn't be dinged for taking doctor approved percocet. Clearance is variable, from 1-5 days, if you research detection timetables. ...Read more

How long should I be experiencing pain that requires percocet after oral antral communication surgery?
A few days: I would expect typical pain from a procedure like this to abate after 4 to 7 days, but we each have our own pain threshold! Some people require no narcotic pain meds for surgery like this, but others might need Percocet for 10 to 14 days. Be sure to let your doctor know if you need a refill, as this medicine can't be phoned in- a written prescription is required. ...Read more

If you have muscle weakness from percocet. How long after you stop taking it does it usually take to go away?
Not a common effect: If you feel it's related to your Percocet pain medications, you need to contact your pcp, and let her/him know that you're having this particular side effect. This normally doesn't happen with pain meds. So depending on when you stop taking them, symptoms should go away within at least a week (or five half-lives.) this is not a common residual effect. ...Read more
Been taking 30mg Percocet 4x a day plus hydrocodone 10 mg 6x a day for 25 yrs straight how long does it take to come off of with tapering to low dose?
That's a lot:
If someone is on greater than 100 mg/day, professional support is advised on tapering. This looks like double that. In general this would be often in the context of many addiction issues and would benefit from a 12 step program. Maybe inpatient/rehab for weeks with coming off supervised cold turkey/ rapid taper with a lot of support.
weeks rehab. Months otherwise. Cannot say in your case ...Read more
Narcotic complicatio: If you are asking this, likely your prescribing M.D. did not prescribe both these meds in this manner. If you are having so much pain not controlled by 5mg Percocet, what is the origin of the pain? That needs to be determined to prescribe effectively. In addition, with COPD, mixing 2 short-acting narcotics can lead to excessive respiratory depression in some folks. Get your M.D.'s approval. ...Read more
About 8 hours: Oxycodone is opiod in Percocet and it has a half-life of 3.5-4 hours which means that half of it will be eliminated in that time so theoretically unless you ingested more you are usually free of the Percocet about 8 hours after ingestion. You might help get it out faster by drinking water because it is excreted by urine (19% unchanged). ...Read more
