hi i just fiound this board awesome i just switched to percocet 5/325 i take 3 or 4 a day one every 4 hrs every time i take one my breathing gets really labored this concerns me anyone else?? have this problem. i have mild cp from birth and have had 3 foot surgeries and when i was in the hospital on morphine it also effevted my breathing. when i was on vicodin my brahing was fine but it did squat for my pain i also take valium 2mg 4 a day and baclofen which is a antispasmodic so im thinking the combo of depessents is doing it?????????????

I would talk to your dr. as soon as possible and let him/her know what is going on. This is something your dr. should know about and make a decision on. I wouldn't mess around with it.

It is a common side-effect of Opiates(Morphine,Percocet)to cause CNS supression,but not in the manner you are describing.DITTO on what Karla said.

I too agree that you should let your Dr know what is going on with your breathing. It wouldn't hurt, maybe it is perfectly normal with the other medications. Or it may not be and the only sure way to know would be check with your Dr.

thx for the insight i started spacing out the other meds 2hrs apart from the percocet and that seems to help alot. i think it was because i was taking every med at the samt time. it could also just be bad allergies because when im indoors its ok

If you are concerned about your breathing please tell your doctor. Or could it be allerges? They might need to change your meds again. make sure it's not your heart either. Or if you having anexity attacks...
