Nausea on the Percocet??

I am having some slight nausea when I take it with food and moderate nausea if I do not take it with food. I do not remember that happening before when I took Percocet. Could it be due to a different brand. I filled this at CVS and they have me Mallincrap (I mean Mallicradt) Any of you similar when starting on it or taking that brand?

Re: Nausea on the Percocet??

Brian, I was the same for awhile when I started of percocet. I take the endo. brand. It is not as bad as it was when I first started on it & I am taking up to four aday. Of course it is better if I eat something, but I am not one to eat in the mornings. I still can feel abit of nasuea in the mornings but it is better then when I first started taking them. I do get constipation bad & can't go with out something. Hopefully it gets better for you. Good luck, Sammy

Hey brian,
Percocet always makes my wife sick. I would have thought that anyone with your experience with opiates would be immune to that, but you never can tell.

Re: Nausea on the Percocet??

I am very surprised one little pill and such a low dose can make YOU sick of all people. wow that is surprising.

try taking it with a pepcid AC or some tums or something, see if that helps. If it does not get better in say a week you may have to discontinue percocet. I take straight oxycodone, I wonder if that would be easier for you to handle? Just a thought and its still a 5 mg pill.

so sorry your nauseous. you poor thing!

Did you ever see my post on the shoes, I wear called Crocs? they really help my foot pain and I wear them around the house. they are so darn comfortable they might help your foot pain. did you see my previous post on that?

Re: Nausea on the Percocet??

Hey Brian....Hope you're doing better. For opioid tolerant patients, nausea is a sign of too much med. You've just increased from Lortab to Percs, which is a pretty big jump....But, you're also on the patch....50s if I remember correctly. So, the combination of the fent and Oxycodone is probably causing this....Espeically if you've taken more than one perc.

You can significantly address this by making sure you take the percs with food, or even better, right after you've eaten a meal....Take on a full stomach.

Good luck.

Re: Nausea on the Percocet??

I think that it might be a combination of things:
1. slight constipation right now (increasing the Miralax at the moment)
2. increase in the opiate strength
3. different opiate (off the hydrocodone)
4. combination of everything I am taking
5. not always taking on a full stomach
6. under alot of stress at the moment
7. possibly the Mallin(crap) brand

Thanks for the replies.
