Percocet: I believe that your doctor's concern may not be as much as you being a drug use or not, but where did you get the percocet from?! It is a controlled substance and is prescribed for moderate to severe pain and the person for whom it is prescribed is not supposed to share it even with family members and certainly not with strangers. The person who gave it to you may also lose his/her ability to get. ...Read more

Trying to figure out my allergies. I get hives from Vicodin, Morphine, NSAIDS, Codeine. Does that mean also allergic to Percocet? How about Oxycodone?
Likely: The reaction from codeine, Vicodin, Morphine etc are not truly allergic reaction but from these drugs' ability to release histamine from your cells. Thus you will not likely tolerate any drug in the opiate group. NSAIDs can also cause hives (which are considered allergic in some) but more likely aggravates an existing episode of hives regardless what may be causing it. Need more information. ...Read more
Half of the Percocet can be out of your body in about 4-5 hours, but the other half is still there.
3 to 4 days might be reasonable to expect it to be cleared.
If you are thinking in terms of a drug test, I would not trust these #s to show you clear. It may be found in even smaller amounts. ...Read more
It stops working as: Well as it used to. Virtually anybody who takes opioid drugs on a regular basis will develop tolerance - it is part of the physical nature of the drug and its interaction with our receptors. This is why opioid should virtually NEVER be the only thing done for pain. Many other modalities, including physical treatments like heat, ultrasound, acupuncture, massage, TENS units etc should be used too ...Read more

Caution: Percocet is made up a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone. Oxycodone is an opioid pain medication and acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever which increases the effects of oxycodone. This drug is used for moderate to severe pain. Abuse of this drug can cause addiction, overdose or even death. Percocet is not a blood thinning drug. ...Read more

Oxycodone: Without Acetaminophen (tylenol), and they are not called "percocets, " which is a brand name of the combination oxycodone/acetaminophen product. Since the late 1990s, both immediate release and extended release products with oxycodone alone have been available. Hydrocodone products continue to be in combination with tylenol, except for the newest addition zohydro, which is plain hydrocodone. ...Read more
Focused Headache Med: Percocet is not a great medication for a headache. While the opioid may help dull the pain, it does not treat the underlying vasodilation/venous spasms or muscle tension that cause most headaches. Discuss headache medicines such as reglan, (metoclopramide) compazine, and prophylactic medications with your doctor. If you have a headache that is different than a normal headache, you need to go to an er. ...Read more
