Is Percocet advisable over Trazodone to manage pain?

I take 25 mg of Trazodone to sleep, for I have fibromyalgia. Today I had oral surgery (a dental implant) and was sent home with Percocet, which also makes me sleepy as a side effect, but just for 4 hours or less. If I need the Percocet for the pain, should I skip the Trazodone tonight? Or do they work safely together? (Should I start out with just Trazodone and see if I wake up in pain?) I can t come up with the obvious solution here. I m sorry, I didn t understand that this was a pay service. I feel like an idiot for having given up private medical information to this website -- and for failing to call the pharmacy before it closed, so I m stuck without an answer.

Hi,

Thanks for your question on HCM

I do understand your concern

“As” per your clinical history is concerned if you mix both medication and take there is no serious side effects or any interaction exist between each other but there is a chance of increase sedation so be careful for it. You can try to see if there is any pain without [percocet].

Hope that helps

Last November I had quadruple bypass. I m 59 not over weight male, I thought in pretty good health. Well high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes and cancer survivor. So maybe not so healthy. At the time I was on max anti-inflammatory, and meds for all the other and insulin. My question is now the Dr don t want me on any anti-inflammatory meds and in addition to everything else , they have me on Percocet 40 mg per day. Is this safe and the best way to go.

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.

Greetings all. I m curious what the outcome would be if I quit Trazodone. I went on it after brain surgery in 2002. My 2nd under the knife, 2 other times prior underwent radiation procedure. Also between 2000-2002 times were dramatic, Mom long time suffered from same thing(nf2), died a month prior to the 2002 surgery. After awaking from that surgery and becoming paralysed entirely on left side of face, I was in a panic state of mind. That panic started a year prior after my second gamma knife surgery. Didn t realize back then, but thinking back, there was a few times where to panic came out through speech. Moving on..I was put on 25mg of trazodone, didn t do much, or last long. Then 50mg. That did it, and I ve been on it every since. I started to feel the panic/anxiety in 2010 and have been dealing with it ever since. I had two minor facial procedures (eyelid surgery) in 2012, and that kind of tip me over the boiling point. I had 2 full blown panic attacks. There were caused by abdominal pain. Very very painful. I ve always thought it was ulcer, but i m not so sure, it s almost like the sink is clogged? all the gas, acid, everything just gets stuck and doesn t move. I had it a few times when i was 17. After a year+ trying to figure it out, I quit coffee after supper and that stopped it. It took about 8-12 months to get over the affects of those attacks. I d always find myself tense, my hands would always clench up, or grabbing my shirt without even knowing. Same goes with other muscles. Only thing that remains is when I do something like house work, moving furniture, mow lawn etc. , my lips will be very red. the panicky feeling is under control for the most part. But after those attacks it just feels not that far away. If i ever need surgery I m gonna definitely seek max trazodone or something. with all this said, is trazodone even working any more? does the body over time develop resistance against it. It didn t calm me down one bit when I had those minor surgeries, or every day since 2011. what im wondering is if i quit, will the panic increase and become unbearable or no change? if i do need more surgery in future I will seek help, but nowadays manageable. I wondering if the 50 mg is still helping out. Mike

Dear Dr,
I am a healthy 30yo male suffering from male pattern baldness. I am considering taking oral finasteride (1mg/day), but am concerned about potential side effects. I have heard bad reports that some side effects, particularly sexual side effects, can happen slowly without you really noticing until its too late. Some also report that these effects do not reverse following ceasation of the drug. However, it seems many people also have success with this treatment. What would your opinion be on this matter? Thanks. Dan.
