It is prescribed more often by doctors because it is very effective and is usually less addictive than morphine.Although, because it is prescribed more often, it has a bigger chance of being abused.
It's a blend of oxycodone HCl & acetaminophen, It can come as a tablet,pill, or a strong gel that can be rubbed on the skin if the patient is throwing up.
Percocets makes you feel warm, occasionally too warm to the point that you sweat a little, but also makes usually understandable and simple questions confusing. You also get very drowsy on this drug. If you try standing up, you may find that its hard to keep balance, so it's really best if you sit.
You should not try to drive or operate machine while on this drug, also stay out of sunlight, your eyes will be very sensitive to it. Caffeine and percocets don't mix very well, I would recommend that you don't drink any because it makes you go hyper in short spurts that annoys the hell outta everyone around you. Do not drink on percocets, this can CAUSE you to vomit.
Also do NOT take percocets in gel form orally, it is VERY strong and is only meant to be absorbed through the skin. Do not crush the pills or tablets. Overdose of this drug can cause liver and kidney damage, or even death.
