    I had ulnar nerve surgery and I am on blood thinners (coumadin). Percocet did almost nothing for the pain. Nerve pain is very intense. My Doctor will prescribe nothing stronger. I went to the emergency room for two shots of demerol that lasted about 6 hours, but could get no other relief. The pain has lasted for 10 days so far.

    I was in a major car accident and broke several bones last year. I have been on Percocet since Oct. 2006. Taking 1/2 pill every 4 hours. I have also had 9 surgeries so far, this medication works perfectly for me. My only concern is getting off this medication since I've been on so long. I start to fell awful if I miss a dose.

    I have taken Percocet numerous times for pain in my knee. I have had 3 knee surgeries and being in the military this is about the best thing you can get. Taking one every four to six hours definately does not work. I wasn't to satisfied with the pain reliever and wish i could get something stronger. Also need to take a laxative while using these.

    I have used this for Kidney Stone pain. Works great as long as I don't get behind on dosing. It did make me feel whoosy in the hour or so after taking it. Overall though it did not make me nauseus, an was effective. Thank goodness i had it or I would not have made it through without another Emergency Room trip for IV pain meds.
