I also use percocet when it comes to crohn's pain, and they seem to work relatively well...they take the edge off the pain, and I am able to function through my day a bit better. 60 for 3 months is not too many at all. That is less than 1 a day for a month, and if you ask me that isn't too much. However if you are needing to take them everyday for 3 months you probably need to talk to your doc about the persistent pain, and try to find the root of the problem rather than cover up the pain with meds. Vicious cycle I know. Before my resection surgery this month my doc prescriped my 90 percocets just to get me through the month. I too feel like I am using a lot of narcotics, but then again if you are in pain, then you are in pain and unfortunately pain meds are what helps during those times. Best of Luck to you!
