Chronic Fatigue, Fibro, and Percocet

Hi, has anyone here taken percocet to help with symptoms? I have taken a few over the past couple days and it helps me so much! But I'm afraid it won't work over time. I was just wondering if anyone else has tried this and how it works for them.

Only thing that percocet did to me was made me black out. That and nueronitin.

Some med's are highly addictive and then you build up a tolerance. Watch yourself.

Good Luck!

Re: Chronic Fatigue, Fibro, and Percocet

When I took Percocets after surgeries, I noticed the effect that you are talking about. And I can understand why you would want to keep feeling that well. But after 12 surgeries in 18months, I found that you build a very high tolerance, and become addicted a lot quicker than you would think. By my last two surgeries, the highest possible doses weren't helping at all (and I only weigh 100 lbs).

If I were you, I would mention to your dr what you like about the percocets and see if they have a safer medicine that can help achieve the same alertness without the side effects.
Good Luck.
