Hi, I have been taking 10/325 Percocet's for a year and 8 months due to my spine fusion surgery, my hardware removal surgery 3 months ago and it also has been helping all the nerve pain.
A month ago my surgeon put me on Neurontin for the nerve pain. I take both Percocet and Neurontin at the moment. I think the Neurontin helps a little with the nerve pain, not all that much...the Percocet is better. The two together keep things manageable.
Today I called to get him to send a prescription over to the pharmacy for the Percocet and I get informed he is changing me to Norco 7.5's.
I know that at some point I need to get off the pain pills.....not right now before the holidays though. My plan was to start tapering off on the Percocets and eventually breaking them all in 1/2 and down to zero a day.
Trust me, I do not abuse these....I take 3-4 a day at regular intervals...my first at 5:30 am before work, one at noon and one around 6. If I am feeling sore I take one at bedtime...around 11pm.
MY actual question is.............. if I suddenly go from 10/325 Pecocets/Oxycodone/Endocet............... to Norco 7.5's...........will I experience any significant withdrawal symptoms?
Anyone else go through this?
