I have found this drug to keep dental pain bearable; no problems with aspirin.

My husband has end stage liver disease. He was given percodan to control his pain. This medication turns him into someone else. Mentally it is a bad drug . I don't know why it just doesn't agree with him. I had to flush them. The hospital gave him dilaudid instead. This works great for him .So if it changes your personality you're not alone.

I wish it came in 750 mg dose. Cutting the pills in half is not always sucessful. Percocet does not agree with me, Percodan has managed my pain for a long time.

I took this medication years ago following surgery to remove my wisdom teeth. It worked wonderfully for the pain but made me sick to my stomach if I didn't eat enough with it. Also, I had a side effect of having hyper sexual behavior. And that was the same day I had my surgery. My husband thought I'd lost my mind.

Whem medication for my migraines don't work I rely on Percodan and it works 95% of the time. The only problem is the taste. Since I have severe nausea with my migraines I had to get creative in order to keep the pill down. To solve the problem I wrap the pill in a little bread and can take it that way.

Was prescribed Percodan 40 years ago for a dental procedure. I started the medication when I got home. The absolute worst medicine experience I can remember. The pain intensified. My skin felt like it was on fire. I couldn't sleep or eat. I had hallucinations for 3 days. I was completely incapacitated during those 3 days. I had no instruction at all on allergies to medications and that one nearly put me under.
