  • Perceived effectiveness for Headaches: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This was an effective medication for my DDD and joint pain. I used it only when I really needed it, and didn't mind that it made me drowsy. I was forced off of it when my doctor told the pharmacy she was no longer my doctor, and my primary doctor refused to prescribe it, since it's a narcotic.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes

Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Try to wean yourself off of this asap. I normally only take this for dental procedures however due to 6 unplanned surgeries since Feb 07, I was forced to take it as needed as I am highly allergic (anaphylactic shock) to Percocet and experienced that right 2 days after my neck fusion on 10/19/07 when I was rushed to the ER and spent a wonderful 3 1/2 hrs there where they determined I am in fact allergic to it and if it hadn't been for my EPI-pen for bee stings I administered at the prompting of my Walgreens pharmacist, I'd be dead.
Cost: < $25 monthly
