Is it safe to mix alcohol with percocets?

No: You could die. You could fall asleep and stop breathing. You could pass out and vomit and inhale the contents of your stomach into your lungs, called aspiration pneumonia. If you are someone who likes to become intoxicated, I would strongly caution against taking opiates, as you are at high risk for developing an addiction problem. ...Read more

Hi There, I was just wondering if there are any serious side effects of taking only a few percocets while on pristiq 50mg, and also how dangerous drinking alcohol REALLY is on this anxiety medication. (I am not taking perc's while drinking alcohol though)

Suspicious: Not enough info. How many is "a few? " Should you be drinking alcohol which is a CNS depressant while taking an anti-depressant, Pristiq (desvenlafaxine)? Why are you taking an opioid which is also a CNS depressant? How close if not together re perc's and alcohol? Not enough info! ...Read more

Can I drink alcohol 10 hours after taking one 10-325mg Percocet? It was rx'd for recent surgery, but I only take it in the AM for PT.

Can I drink alcohol 10 hours after taking one 10-325mg Percocet? It was rx'd for recent surgery, but I only take it in the AM for PT.

No: Alcohol is a poison and it never did any body any good. Stay from it.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

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

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!

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

Probably clear: Typically this drug is not detectable by the urine drug screen after 4 to 5 days.

How long does percocet stay in system and what I have to do to get it out the system?

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

Should I space out Reglan (metoclopramide) from when I take the Percocet? If so, how long?

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

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

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!
