Re: Percocet effect vicodin withdrawals?
Percocet is actually stronger than vicodin. So it will definitely temporarily ease the vicodin withdrawal....but, depending on how many of the percs you take, the end result could be an even worse withdrawal.
My recommendation is to stay away from the percs. If you truly feel you must use another opiate to ease you through the withdrawal, I say you should choose something weaker than the vics. I personally went through a vicodin withdrawal last year. I used darvocet, a weak narcotic, to ease me through the withdrawal. The vicodin withdrawal was not that bad.
Of course, the best route is to avoid any other opiate while you go through withdrawal. Tapering the vicodin would be the best way to ease off slowly, making the withdrawal symptoms less intense than cold turkey
