I have grand mal seizures and I get percocet for my hI need to know do y I've tried percocet it's awfully strong I tried vicodin it's n could you help?
Is tramadol and vicodin or percocet in the same family? I had a seizure from cymbalta and tramadol and one of my drs says they're in the same family.
All analgesics, but: Percocet =oxycodone+tylenol; vicodin=hydrocodone+tylenol. Oxycodone/hyrdocodone are opioid agonists and thus belong to same class as opioids. Tramadol is a non-opioid derived synthetic opioid and acts only as a partial opioid. Tramadol + Cymbalta combo decreases seizure threshold and thus can induce seizure in susceptable folks. So, combo use is cautioned. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends: These are not drugs that it is good to take long term. You should not stop the xanax abruptly as that can cause withdrawal symptoms. The problem with these medications is that they are addictive and the body gets used to them and then they do not work so well and you need more and more. Try to work with your doctor to find other treatments for your symptoms that are safer and healthier. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am having real bad withdrawal from vicodin and klopin. I decided to quite cold turkey. What to do?
Many changes: There are epiliptiform changes in eeg that can be seen with a variety of opioids, with some causing more changes than others. Hydrocodone (vicodin) is converted to morphine and one of its metabolites can cause mental status changes. Other opioids. Like demerol, talwin and Darvon actually can cause seizures, and produce changes in eeg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but: Ultracet contains tylenol and tramadol. The latter has prompted seizures in some susceptible patients, but this appears often dose dependent. If you are perfectly controlled on keppra, you may not be at high risk, but likely safer to try an opioid for pain relief, and drugs such as vicodin, butrans, Nucynta would be less risky. ...Read more
What to do if I did about 3 vicodins this past friday,and I fo see my dr monday,and I know I will be drug tested, will they?
Yes: hydrocodone persists in urine for 2-4 days, and the odds are good that you will test positive. I would suggest that you think more about the fact that you are using drugs, which I presume are unprescribed, even when you know you are subject to testing. This indicates a very likely drug problem, which you should be worrying about a lot more than getting caught at it. ...Read more
