Angry Percocet and sleep problems. Please help.

Hello, I first posted about my percocet problem on 08/09/2016. I still take percocet 5 mg/325, now 4 times a day. Now I often get enough sleep at night. Now at age 77, my problem with percocet is that it causes sleepiness and drowsiness in the DAY TIME . Often I have to fight hard to keep my eyes open. And I often fall right to sleep in a chair or doing work on the computer. This is happening day after day.

I may need a different kind of opioid. Please, I need all the feedback I can get on this. It is certainly not the right way to live. Thanks.

Sorry you are struggling with this. I recommend talking to your doctor. Discuss the issues and ask if you can try a different medication. Best wishes.
