I do have percocets that I take and I take a lot of them. Problem is I can't get in to see my doctor to get more and don't want to go to the emergency. I was given enough to last me until August 7th when my doctor was back from holidays but I haven't been able to get into see him and now have ran out because it's the freaking 12th. I've already way beyond the 2 Tylenol so I'm not sure what I'll do.

Tippy, suck it up and go to the Emerg, that much Tylenol is killer for your your Liver. besides, I don't know how good your doctor is for appointments and letting yuo call the office for more refils, but would you rather wait a month or whatever to see the doctor or waste 5 hours or so waiting in emerg? I would take the 5 hour appt as opposed to the month long waiting one

The only problem is that they are VERY relunctant to prescribe pain medication at the walk-in and many doctors will not do it. Been there with my sister many times. Her doctor should call in a prescription for her tomorrow that will last until her next appointment. Doesn't help her today though /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif

08-12-2007, 03:44 PM
Oh no doubt DQ I'm not going to wait a month. I wouldn't make it that long. I'm hoping to get into the group health walk in clinic. When I went to the emerg last time for this Dr. Pearson was pretty rude about me using the emergency when I am a member of the Group Health and made it very clear that I should be going there and not the hospital. Therefor that is the problem with going to the emerg. Since Dr. Pearson is likely the doctor there.

adigirl
08-12-2007, 03:50 PM
It's none of his business that you are a member of the walk-in clinic and he cannot refuse to assist because of it! That is rediculous and infuriates me. I cannot stand that doctor. He will probably not prescribe because I know a lot of people that he never prescrbes for. Even anti-biotics when there is a history of needing it for some problem.

If go the only trouble you SHOULD encounter that can be understandale is the relunctance to prescribe pain killers at the walk-in due to the abusers of the system. If you get Swartz (spelling) he is using pretty good and prescribing. Dr Wacker is also very good at listening and you might get it from him as well.

Tippy, if you can't get an appointment at the GHC Walk in, then go to the hospital's walkin. if he can't understand why you needed to come in, then *uck him, who cares. he should be able to see your records and see you need these pain killers. it might be easier to call into the GHC and ask the receptionist to get you in touch with your doctor, you should be able to ask for a refill, I know I used to be able to do that when I had my useless GHC doctor, and they would call my prescriptions into the Pharmacy
Good luck Tippy, this must be really rough on you

Hopefully you get your prescription filled soon since Percs are a narcotic and you body should not go without them for a period of time if you have been on them for a while...its recommended that you don't stop them suddenly.

Good luck Tippi and hope you feel better soon.

Thanks guys. I haven't been on them long only about 3 weeks.

Can someone tell me when the Group Health starts taking calls for same day appointments in the morning?

Super Gram
08-12-2007, 08:53 PM
As soon as the GHC is open the calls begin. You might get an app for the next day. I know if that was my Dr. at the GHC he would have me come in after 4.00pm because he says it's a long wait at the hospital

Tippy...

Get off Percocet NOW.

If you think you are addicted OR have run out ...get to the hospital now.

There is a process of 4 drugs required to get you settled back down and off the medication:

1) A sleep med that is fast acting.
2) A med that will help you stop vomitting
3) A med that will calm your nerves (relieves withdrawl)
4) A sleep med you can you use for about 1 month after but is low grade

You will need ALL of these to get rid of Percocet. Don't fool around . Tell your family and friends what is happening and make sure they understand you are coming off Percocet. Tell them it will take at least 7 days of horrible and excruciating withdrawls. Get ready for it yourself. It is horrible. But suffer through it and you will be all the wiser.

Don't fake anything to your doctor or the staff at the hospital....tell them the truth...even though all you want is more Percocet. They know what it is and will give you all the help you need. Just be honest to them.

God be with you.

Ok I think you may be going over a bit overboard. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif
I've only been taking the percocets for 3 weeks and am waiting to see a specialist but my appointment isn't until October.

I'm definitely not addicted to them as I don't even take the max prescribed dose of it. In fact I'm willing to take whatever I I can to take away the pain. I could care less if it was percocets or not. Hence the reason I was asking about the Tylenol. Unfortunately the Tylenol isn't helping.

Oh and Gram they don't do next day appointments only same day for the walk-in.
I'm just not sure what time they start answering the phones for that. It's either 8 or 8:30am.

I am alergic to codine and they perscribe me percs after any surgury while after my last tubal instead of ibrophin the dr perscribed these as THey totally remvoed my tubes, I was on them 4 days and experienced 1 week of terrible terrible withdrawls, I wanted to cry it was brutal not being able to function

Wow.... that's all I can say lol. I highly doubt she is addicted after 3 weeks. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

For nearly two years, I was prescribed Percocet, Tylenol 3 and Morphine. For some dumb reason, the doctors alternated them... doesn't make a difference, they are all opiates lol.
The day after my last surgery, I took 2 Tylenol 3s and I was fine after that. I had to take some Tylenol (and quite often still do) but I never went through withdrawals in any way. Maybe I am just lucky, but I took those medications ONLY when I was in severe pain from my kidneys.

Anyway... hope you feel better soon, Tippi! /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

There's a reason a whole mess of folks try to fake prescriptions (especially for Percocet, Tylenol #3, and morphine)...they ran out.

Don't go there Tippi....it's a hard and painful road.

Since you ran out...try Tylenol #1. No prescription needed. It has Codeine. You need to ask for it at the counter of any reputable drugstore (not Walmart, Zellers, Rome's etc). They will ask you if you've had it before and say yes. They will ask if you want the generic...say yes (it's cheaper). Tylenol #1 comes in bottles of 50, 100 or 200. Take your pick. DO NOT use Tylenol #1 if you have any allergies to Codeine or have been told by your doctor that you can not use Codeine because of other medications you may be on...

Hope this helps. Just GET OFF Percocet and stay off.

dancingqueen
08-12-2007, 10:03 PM
well, it is still possible that Tippi is addicted, because it doesn't take much, but they are a nessisarry evil at this momment I am sure the Doctor was well aware of the risks involved when prescribing them. this is probably why Tylenol won't work, or you have simply built up an immunity to them wich is also not great. But, it seems Tippy is getting some treatment in October and these "Perks" are a temporary treatment. When the time comes I am confident her Doctor will appropriatly ween her off these drugs.
P.S. Perks are not Narcotics. Narcotics are defined as Illicit drugs meaning they are illegal, Perks are not Illigal, they do however have simmilar properties of illegal drugs.
So, Tippy, I say try to get your refill as your doctor would expect you to do and wait for your treatment, hopefully you feel better soon /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Puppy...yes, apparently you can take Advil with Percocet but you need to be very carefull with dosage. Advil thins the blood (thus lowers blood pressure).

Advil CANNOT be taken with any type of aspirin product (Aspriin, Bayer etc.)

Although I was not aware of it before, Perks can be bad for the liver as well:

I would avoid taking a mix of different drugs if at all possible, there is no telling how they could react. Like Barely said it will thin your blood as well so make sure you don't have any existing thin blood (I forget what it's called :$) Illnesses

/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif Are you kidding me? The only thing I'm addicted to is making the pain go away. And if that consists of shooting up speed.....I'd do it.
Like I said I could care less what I take as long as it works. I've had this issue for well over 2 years and it has progressed to what it is now. So for 2 and half years I have done the whole Tylenol etc. thing. Unfortunately that no longer works.

Bearly... are you one of those people that think every type of drug on Earth will get yuo hopelessly addicted and put on an episode of "Intervention"????

Belive it or not, some drugs are good for you and needed, Unless you are a doctor, I think Tippy should do what her doctor is telling her, and even if you where a doctor, it is not likely you are aware of her specific medical condition.
So please, reserve your judgement

Most medications are processed in the liver or the kidneys. I get both of mine tested on a regular basis. ANYTHING with acetaminophen (Tylenol) is dangerous for the liver when used on a regular basis or taken in one very large dose.

If a person is in pain and has to take a narcotic, they should take it only when in severe pain. I always alternated with an anti-inflammatory like Naproxen and Indoced (or whatever the hell it is called) and took something to help me sleep at night so I would not wake from the pain. It was pretty damned hard to work on Morphine or Percocet lol. Plus, I had to take Gravol to stop the nausea from the narcotics. I also had a family doctor and a surgeon who looked after me, and made sure I was not going over the recommended dosage. Two weeks worth of medication lasted me a month or so.

Doctors who prescribe narcotics usually keep an eye on these things (GOOD doctors like mine do). I was lucky that I was able to get off them just fine. No headaches, nausea or anything after. I took some Tylenol 1s if needed after I was off the other narcotics when the damage in my kidneys would cause me pain. They can be a problem too though. I have a sister who was addicted to those and pharmacists in her town stopped selling them to her pretty damned quick!

Tippi...

I am not a doctor nor a pharmacist.

As you can see, I rarely post here.

You are someone that is a regular and helps alot of people around this board.

I read the boards several times a day but never post. I'm too shy.

I've had huge problems with Percocet (oxy-continen) and thousands of others have to. The manufacturer of that drug has been successfully sued for LYING about it's addictive properties. Just Google the news stories about it and you'll see.

All I want to do is help save a valued member of this discussion board the pain and sufferring from such a drug. I know it from my own experience.

If you continue on your present course, you WILL suffer the consequences. And I guarantee all readers that our beloved "TippiKitty" will be voicing his/her opposition to this drug before December.

Not true Barely sane. I was on 2 Oxy's 4 times a day along with a flexeril at least twice a day for nearly 2 years. When my pain went away so did the oxy's.

I stopped taking them and never suffered from any symptoms of withdrawl.

Not from my experience. My doctor is a member of GHC and I have never had a problem in emerg. Very speedy treatment compared to many here, actually...

Here's another for ya.... My wife is currently taking all the steps to become a Landed Imagrant of Canada... Everytime we have to go to the hospital its costs 360.00..... a bit pricey but ..... to go over the river it would be over 800.00 so .... We pay it... I tried to cut some corners and ask my Doc if he could look at my stepson to address an ear infection that was really bad... He told me and I quote " because I am now employed with the Group Health Centre, I can't see any patients that are NOT Canadian, theres an insurance issue in reguards to seeing anyone that does not have OHIP even if they pay cash".... I scratched my head... raised my eyebrows... shrugged my shoulders and shook my head.... All I got outta that visit was exercise by lifting my arm... raising my eyebrows shrugging my shoulders.... and shaking my head.... o ya!.....and climbing the stairs too.........

lol

I am not a doctor nor a pharmacist.

As you can see, I rarely post here.

You are someone that is a regular and helps alot of people around this board.

I read the boards several times a day but never post. I'm too shy.

I've had huge problems with Percocet (oxy-continen) and thousands of others have to. The manufacturer of that drug has been successfully sued for LYING about it's addictive properties. Just Google the news stories about it and you'll see.

All I want to do is help save a valued member of this discussion board the pain and sufferring from such a drug. I know it from my own experience.

If you continue on your present course, you WILL suffer the consequences. And I guarantee all readers that our beloved "TippiKitty" will be voicing his/her opposition to this drug before December.
</div></div>

As I stated before...Thank you for your concern but as I've also stated. If I can take something else I will, but have yet to find anything that I haven't already tried. I am very aware of the addictiveness of this drug and it does concern me. But....with that being said, with the pain I am in at this point I really don't care. Believe me I am willing to try anything, but unfortunately with my problem an over the counter pill isn't going to work or at least hasn't yet. I know this because my doctor and I have been doing this for well over 2 years.

I'm still not sure about this Quote thing so I did a "cut and paste":

MY RESPONSE:
If you're doctor of 2 years was really concerned, and he was going on vacation, he would have provided REFILLS. He didn't do that. Thus, he really is concerned. He cares enough to ensure anything he prescribes is NOT out of his control. That says a lot for your Doctor! He CARES! It's the patient that wants more...not the Doctor for not prescribing enough. That's why addicts switch doctors all the time and run to emergency/clinics for refills of drugs.

Not that I have to explain myself, but I will.....

I have had this problem for over 2 years. It has been controlled by other medications up until 3 weeks ago I had a episode that made my problem that was manageable, unmanageable. At the time of the incident my doctor was on holidays so I had to go to the emerg.
My problem has become severe enough in the past 3 weeks that the on call doctor put me on the percocets and booked me an appointment with a specialist right then and there. The doctor gave me enough medication. Not just percocets either, to last me until my regular family doctor come back on the 7th.
An emergency doctor can only give you enough medications to last you until you are able to see you own doctor.
My problem now is getting in to see my own doctor since he's been back from vacation on the 7th.

How many Tylenol extra strength (500mg) can a person take at once without overdosing?
</div></div>

dont take them with alcohol.
i think it depends on how your last few liver cells are doing but i could be wrong ..

i always thought it was 650 to 1000 mg up to four times a day.
but then again..... i'd rather use alcohol....

What is the "problem" exactly (not being antagonistic..but it would help to know even if it's just general).

Since the episode is so severe, then why the problem with getting an appointment with your doctor? (or is it the "Soo thing...lack of doctors/no time thing). Any Doctor would surely recognize a patient in distress.

I have some left over Vicodin (I think it's the generic) from when I had a bad toothache, if I lived near you Tippi I would share!! lol!! I'll probably flush them eventually anyways.

I have nerve damage which causes even air on my skin to hurt. So you can imagine what it's like to even put on clothing. You ever see a grown women cry just because she has to put clothes on? Not pretty.

As for seeing the doctor....ummmm unless you have on hell of a bad doctor that no one wants to see then yes it's hard to get in. I should be able to see him this week or at least that's what I'm hoping for. That's why I was looking for alternatives to hold me over until I can get in to see him instead of running down to the emerg.. If I can find something other then percs then wonderful. I really don't care at this point.

Bearly, it seems you are doing a wonderful job of telling her what NOT to do, and how you think she should NOT deal with the problem (no medical explenation, just an obsession you seem to have) Why don't you try offering her some ideas of what she could DO because, frankly, you are not being helpfull.

When an individual has pain severe enough for a doctor to perscribe Perc's or Oxy whatever you want to call them, there is a serious issue.

In many cases like Tippi's there is no quick answer or cure for her condition. If there was another medication that would take her pain away, the doctor would have given it to her.

I know in my case I went through the gammit of meds before I ever got the Oxy's prescribed. I was very concerned about becoming addicted to them and had discussed it with my doctor prior to ever taking them. He indicated that there was NO other medication that I could take for my level of pain that would help me that didn't have addictive qualities. He stressed that I needed them, and that if/when I didn't then we would take me off of them. I took myself off WITHOUT withdrawl symptoms. Why did I not become addicted to them? I don't know, maybe it was because when my pain started to subside I took them only when it was absolutley necessary - JUST LIKE TIPPI IS!


I know that many people are addicted to Oxy and many require treatment for thier addiction, however not everyone who takes them becomes addicted to them.

I agree 100% DQ I think that there are addictive personalities and those individuals would be/could be addicted after the 1st one.
I however am not one of those personalities, neither is Tippi.
