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?

Re: How long does percocet last?

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.
