Can I Take 2 5 325 Percocet Every 4 Hours


I was taking 2 Percocet/4hours for 5 days. I had a knee replacement. But yesterday I started to scale back and only taking 1/4hours. I have also started to become nauseous. Is that because I lowered my dose or because there is now a lot in my system? Also, can the 2 Percocet/ 4 hours taken for 5 days hurt my liver?

Yes, that can be a withdrawal effect of lowering your dosage, according to FDA warnings. You may also experience dizziness, fever, chills, rebound pain, and diarrhea.

Generally, it takes long term use of high amounts, but we are all different, so it is best to never exceed the dosing instructions.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Than you. However I followed the ortho nurse instructions for changing the dose because my pain was out of control. I am doing much better now. Just taking one pill every four hours and it seems to be working well along with icing.
