Re: need advice asking doc for different meds
i find the percocet stronger than the hydro.
I take percocet for stabbing nerve pain (still doesn't kick it but does take edge off) and take the hydro for overall back pain when I'm not in as much pain but enough to need something to stay sane. Percocet really knocks me for a loop, so I start with half a pill, then work up, as needed. My doctor has had me in percocet for 7 months. At 6 mons he put me on hydro instead but told me to keep the percocet for the level 9 nerve pain.
Frankly, I cannot function with these drugs. Can't do numbers or anything. Can't remember anything. Go around in a fog all day on those days I have to use them, so I try not to. can't find anything to take t he pain away. Feel like i have no life. Good luck.
