: I need to know the approx. percentage of people that
: become addicted to percocet after having it prescribed
: to them after surgury for an acute period of 3-4 months. During this time they are taking it for
: therapeudic purposes only.
I know in my case, 3.4 months is hardly "acute". I think you're in the chronic stage as far as using percocet is concerned. You should expect at least a physical addiction to have set in and with that, withdrawl symptoms when you (or whoever) quits.
