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: My 5 day Solumedrol treatment at the end of May, failed to improve the physical fatigue of my limbs. It was still an effort to move. I asked the Dr., thinking that my problem was mostly sensory, if something that blocks sensation (pain) would help. It has helped quite a bit. Though I want to stop after one week & see if I am ok withouut it. Not one I care to add to the daily regimen.

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden

Dosage: 4 x 325 mg-5 mg/5 mL Daily
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.

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 3 x 325 mg-5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I increase or decrease this dosage according to pain levels at the time. I watch the timing and never use more than prescribed. I will take 1/2 pill when I need to drive anywhere or if Mom needs more care. I take 1 whole most of the time, but they tend to make me drowsy. I will take 1 1/2 when pain is really bad. I also try to alternate with tens unit, otc pain patches and ointments, and sometimes Aleve in addition (w/Dr. approval)
