I was told today that I may have an enzyme problem because medications sometimes have the opposite effect: example being Percocet does not make me sleepy, it hypes me up. How do I find out if I have this rare enzyme issue? Also, I have been taking that for several years. I have stopped taking it in the past and had no withdrawal symptoms. It does not work the way it use to. I have tried Vicodin, Norco and Roxicet with no relief. When admitted to the ER on several occasions, I was given Dilaudid or Morphine and both relieved the pain the best. Would this be a good progression while waiting for my tolerance for Percocet subsides? If not, could you recommend an alternative?

My husband was on Roxicet after having radiation for throat cancer. The radiation affected his saliva gland and he secretes a tremendous amount of phlegm. He said the combination of the ingredients in Roxicet was the only medicine that allowed the phlegm to not clog his throat. We live in Fitchburg MA and the pharmacy that we use has been unable to acquire this medicine for us. I know there are several ingredients that make up this drug so I'm not sure if a generic brand would work. It would be like trial and error using any generic brand. So to make a long story short, can you tell me where we can get Roxicet so we can tell our doctor and pharmacist. Thank you. Sandy XXXXXXX
