Just wondering how Percocet (Acetaminophin/Oxycodone) works for those taking it? I take it for chronic back/muscle pain. It's about
the only thing that remotely works for me. I don't know if it actually kills the pain or if it just puts me in such a good mood that I can deal with the sometimes gnawing muscle pain in my mid-back.
I worry about becoming 'dependant', but I don't take it 'recreationally' and if I'm having a good day I can easily only take 1/2 tablet to one full tablet. On a bad day I've taken 3-4 over 12 hours -- sure, I feel good but I feel like a zombie too. I have to admit they give me a "buzz"... a sort of relaxed sense of well-being (which I don't complain about) -- and I can see how some people could become addicted. I've tried to go off them a few times, and I don't think I go thru withdrawl, but sometimes I begin to feel "uncomfortabe" and "on edge".... but one time I did go off them temporarily and I felt fine. I don't think I'm flirting with addiction, but dependance (mentally? physically?) maybe???
Anyways just wondering about anyone else's experience?
