Hello, I have been taking Percocet for about 4 years

Hello, I have been taking Percocet for about 4 years for severe back and knee pain. I have Polymyalgia rheumatica. Today, I asked the Kaiser pharmacist if I could pick up refill today, Friday, instead of this Mon., my ususal pick up day. I am down to 7 and a half pills. Pharmacist would not give me permission to have an early pick up. May I safely take another narcotic, such as Norco, during the two days when I no longer have any Percocet? I would take a low dose - just to beat back my sick feeling. I have been on the govt. mandated six pills per day of Percocet for two years. It has been a big stuggle to have only six pills per day. Kindly answer my Norco question. Thank you very much.

What is the shelf life of Percocet. I m in a lot of pain from a urinary tract infection and I just found an old prescription of Percocet that I never used. It s out of date by less than a year. Is it ok to take it until I can contact my doctor tomorrow. Thank you

I have been prescribed Percocet 325/10 after finding out i have 3 collapsed did kin my lower neck. I have been taking 2 a day to manage the relentless pain my nerve endings have created mostly on the left side of my body. I am 55 years of age and have never taken pain Meds like this before. I have noticed several side affects and I m very concerned about becoming addicted to this medicine and all the health risk associated with this medicine. We did initial neck injection two weeks ago and my surgeon and I are planning a spinal epidural in the very near future. Please advise maybe a different medicine or educate me on the risk to my health like my liver, kidneys, or any other organs. I ve been taking this med for around 2 months now. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
