Re: how long does percocet last
It's all about tolerance. For those who are relatively new to PM and haven't taken many meds, a Percocet can last upwards of 6 hours. Most med labels say to take this type of med every 4-6 hours.
For those who have been on meds for a while, 3+ hours is about the norm. And, for those who have been in PM for a long time and have taken more powerful meds, it may only last 1-2 hours, tops.
So, it really is a tough question to answer as it's individually dependent. Also, one's body weight and metabolism is also a factor. It's always best to work with your Doctor closely on this type of thing as each person's individual characteristics are in play.
