Re: Muscle pain-please help
I would take half the prescribed dose to see if that would give enough relief for the toe pain. It just might, because you are hypothyroid. If not, cautiously take a bit more, but watch for exaggerated serious side effects. I presume you have the insert that came with the prescription? Look there for a list of "serious" side effects. If you no longer have the insert, I'm sure you can get another from the pharmacy.
If you become extremely fuzzy-headed, have trouble breathing, experience a very slow heartbeat, can't stay awake... any kind of serious problem at all, discontinue the Percodan and either go to the ER or call the doctor immediately.
By the way, I meant to tell you before... The AACE considers TSH above 2.5 to be worthy of treatment. You can see that yours, at 6+, should be treated now. Good luck hanging on till the new MD appt. But remember, if he gives you any grief, start MD-shopping.
