Eliminating Vicodin and Percocet would Lower Doctor’s Options for Treatment by Medical Quack Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Thu 09 Jul 2009 10:43pm Is it an option to prescribe oxycodone or hydrocodone without acetaminophen as they would be stronger?  With the focus on acetaminophen with the liver the numbers of overdoses appear small, but you could do the same thing with alcohol and there are deaths every year with an overdoes of liquor too.  As the doctors state, if taken as directed, the ...

Percocet by Carol BipolarHubby Patient Expert Posted Sat 11 Apr 2009 1:03am 1 Comment Now I don't remember how much I've told you about DH and Percocet, so I'll give you a little recap--way back before the bipolar stuff really started, DH had some kind of pain, I can't remember if it was back pain or tooth pain or what, but anyhow, he was given a small prescription for Percocet. After he had been taking it for a couple of ... Read on »

I think my Percocet is kicking in by Terri O. Patient Expert Posted Mon 15 Jun 2009 6:28pm 1 Comment I’m feeling a bit dizzy when I stand up – if I remember correctly from  my abdominal surgery a few years ago, that means it’s working.  Now I just wish it would really kick in where the aching is in my mouth. As you might have guessed, I had some dental work today.  I took myself directly to the local Walgreens where I got my prescriptions ... Read on »
Ban on Percocet and Vicodin? by John Elder Posted Thu 09 Jul 2009 12:00am This is from the NY Times and came out last week, and I have to admit it was a pretty eye-opening article for me.  This was eye-opening for the simple fact that these two meds (and their generic equivalent) are prescribed over 100 million times per year.  That’s a VERY scary statistic.  If we do the simple math, it means that 1 in 3 Am ...

Percocet revisited by Carol BipolarHubby Patient Expert Posted Fri 12 Mar 2010 12:34pm DH was released from the hospital yesterday. I'm relieved, of course. It was a pretty big deal. But unfortunately, he was also given a prescription for Percocet, and, if you've read my blog for a while, you know that that is a problem drug for DH. And a bigger problem for me. Argh. It always becomes a very unhealthy power struggle. I gav ... Read on »

THIS TITLE ISN'T MORRISSEY-RELATED! by Calvin B. Patient Expert Posted Tue 21 Oct 2008 12:43am ...though he and The Smiths are the best thing to listen to when you're down. Nothing else (and I like The Cure, too) allows you to wallow deep deep down in your own misery. Moving on! It seems (with crossed toes) that I may have been granted a reprieve. This happens to fibro patients -- the agony waxes and wanes. I think the mo ... Read on »
