Hi everyone,
I posted this on the social board, and someone suggested I post it here, too.
I'm recovering from a surgery, and the doctor gave me percocet for pain. I've been taking it for 6 weeks now, although I take less than I did in the beginning. I don't even need it for pain anymore. I continued taking it after the pain subsided because of the high it gives me. I know from what I've read online and heard that all people become addicted to percocet after 3 weeks. I know I am addicted because when I don't take it, I feel spacy, naseous and I have sweats. And all I can think about is the next time I can take a pill. i don't take very much of it, but even still, it's really hard to taper down. I don't have an unliimited supply. if I keep taking it at my current rate, I have about 40 more days worth. I called the doctor about getting off of it, and they prescribed me darvocet to take and told me to only take the percocet at night. Then after a week, to go off the percocet. I haven't done that. I haven't even tried the darvocet. I look forward so much to the happy, carefree feeling I get when I'm on the percocet. I don't want anything else. When I take it, I feel like I don't have any worries or sadness. Have any of you had experiences with percocet? It's extremely powerful stuff. I know it's not good to be taking it unecessarily, but it's a challenge to stop taking it.
