What did you take it for and did it help with pain? Also did you experience any side effects? If yes, what were they?

I’ve had it prescribed after a few surgeries. I cannot take it anymore. I ask for anything else. It didn’t work as a painkiller for me and it just made me really nauseous. Some people are okay with it, but it’s not good for me at all.

I was given it after a c-section. It made me feel like I was flying in outer space, but it did nothing to kill the pain.
Pain in space …..

I was prescribed it after labor while in the hospital because it’s one of the only ones you can take while breastfeeding and I had no side effects. Im the opposite of Pp and it’s one of the only painkillers that doesn’t make me nauseous.

Personally no, but as a nurse, some people it works great, gets rid of their pain with no side effects. Some people get pain relief okay, but also get super nauseous from it, alway eat something before you take it! And some people become total zombies on it, especially if they don’t take painkillers often. They aren’t joking when they say don’t drive or make important decisions. Some people are totally okay, others are super impaired on it.

That doesn’t sound promising. Boo.
lol oh no. I heard it can make you feel very relaxed. Did that help at all at least to deal with pain?
That’s good. Did it help with the centralized pain?
That’s what the pharmacist said, too. I’m in the process of finding out if I have endometriosis and ibuprofen hardly helped. I just started spotting, only when I wipe, though. I’m debating trying one out tonight to see how I react, but I’m also a little early for a period so I’m afraid I could be pregnant and possibly hurt a fetus if it exists. I’ll have to wait a day more I guess. Hoping that percocet will help with my beyond severe pain once I start AF.

I did after a back injury. I just had trouble sleeping on it, but nothing else worked for the pain. I was intimidated because of the addiction risk, but speaking personally, I didn’t feel any narcotic effect from it. Like I didn’t feel high or doped up or anything. Obvi everyone us different but yeah…

I had them when I had my wisdom teeth out. Worked awesome but I was completely non functional- just sitting on the couch zoning. No way I could have worked, driven etc.

I had it after knee surgery. Didn’t feel side affects

not sure that it killed the pain, but it just made me sleepy enough that I didn’t care. No nausea for me, though that’s not true for everyone.

I feel the same way about the addiction risk. I don’t do things like that for recreation, but you hear so many stories about people getting addicted.
I’m probably going to call out of work. Might as well use my sick days. I had Vicodin after my wisdoms were pulled and went back to work after two days and was in complete zombie mode. Somehow I made the drive, though.
Thanks, good to know. We shall see how it affects me.

I had a cystoscopy on a fallopian tube cyst. I had the generic form, oxycodone. No real side effects other than not being able to poo for a few days.

I took it after i dislocated my knee. I puked because of it and couldn’t keep anything down, so I was switched to Norco.

I had percocet when I had my tonsils taken out (as an adult). If I took one, it took away the pain and I felt a little woozy but not really. If I took 2 at once, I sat on the couch and stared into space for hours.
I had something else…vicodin maybe… for my wisdom teeth and I’ve never felt stomach pain like I felt then. I finally threw up and felt much better.

Ah, I have such fond memories of taking percocet in the hospital for kidney stone pain… then having my brother repeatedly pull to rhe side of the highway so that I could vomit.
