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.

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.

Dr I am a 70 year old retired woman that had a very high phase job. I have Anxiety and has been treated with Alplazolan since 1990 which really keeps my ansiety under control. I went to a new Doctors since I moved from Miami to Asheville with my 100 Permanently disable husband. A few days ago I saw my doctor which is the same doctor taking care of my husband under a Pain Management Contyract. All of a sudden he told me he has to put me in a withdraw program to take meout of Alprazolan because they discovered that Alprazolan has a link with Alzheimer. He gave me Trazodone 50 mg as a replacement. I do research and under this new medicine one of th side effects is if I have in my family a history of heart attacks. YES On my father side 2 male die of it. On my mother side my granfather died of a heart attack and My son I guess if he dosent take care of himself is a candidate for a heart attack since his father and grand father ( his father ) both had massive heart attacks. If males in my family are having hearts attacks of course I must live a llife of good weight and accordingly even if I am a female and this applies only to males. Also another medicine that I was given for my knees pain I needed to tell my doctor that YES I have a rough line of suicides in my family. It is on both side. My grandmother hot herself when I was 15, my father cousing shot himself, my brothr after getting a live transplant in Mayo Clinic lost his business and hung himself from the thir floor of his business office. In that same year my mothers sister son shot his head because they choke with stress and blew his head leaving 3 girls and 1 boy. I do not drink. I do not smoke. I do not take chemical drugs prescribed by anyone. I only take my Alprazolan when I have too much anxiety because I have a flool plate with my husband degenerative bone decease. It is tough but I am a tough woman. I am aware of the inheritance of genes a lot. My granfather came out of John Hopkins but the dysfuctionally was horrible. I solve dysfunctionally because I was not going to be another incident in my family and took a plane and got away from all of them. I reached all my goals. Had a majjor important job for 25 years, I bank with the same bank for 25 years and I have been a volutary teacher for the USFedCourt Southern District since after separating from my job I became an OSHA Outreach Construction/ Roadwork and Maritime. I have an excellent amount of letter for being highly organized, etc. I goy married three years ago and I am happy here with my Vet husband helping him because they were really prescribing him things that did not apply and I took/recommended him to leave the VA and go private. This is how we both have the same Primary Physician. I have no intention of discontinuin the use of my Alprazolan regardless of the consequences. But using unfounded info that I can proove like a letter from a medical investigation last year that was not able to link between Alprazolan with Alzheiner is luducres since that study was done, it was never implemented. I was told by a friend of mine who is a Dr but I cannot bring him into the situation. He told me that they are doing this because my husband is under strong medication, his situation is serious but why this now. I really dont like medications but I am not going to take something that is for bipolar or worse since at my age I am still active and healty. I am a Type A person. Professional. And very healthy for my age. Please advice.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
