Advice & Tips: Have been on Percocet for a while now and has been working well for my back pain. Very few headaches from it compared to when I was on vicodine. Has been working very well for me. Was forced to change doctors when mine left Mayo and new Dr has put me back on vicodine. This is why I am no longer taking it.

Advice & Tips: Stopped taking due to peaks and valleys caused by taking short acting med. Therapist recomended changing to a constant level pain med, so now am on Fentanyl patch. I think the Roxicet worked better when it was at it's peak, but I'd rather not have the ups and downs and the desire to take more Roxicet because of pain returning. Fentanyl patch lasts 3 days.
