    How long does percocet last?

    I just got my wisdom teeth pulled and the doctor prescribed me 20 endocet pills (substituted for percocet). The strength is 7.5/325 mg. Does anyone know how strong these pills are and how long the effect lasts?

    Thanks!

    If you have never taken Vicodin, the Percocet will be hard to compare to anything I guess.
    The 7.5 is pretty strong stuff. I'd start with 1 pill and see how that does, if it were me. It will last 4-8 hours, maybe more, maybe less.
    It could make you dizzy, nauseous, tired or spaced out. Take one and lie down, or sit down and watch TV or something.

    Percocet only last 4 to 6 hours. Do not take more than prescribed or double your dose without talking to your doctor. This is a strong med if you are not taking regular narcotics.
