I am currently recovering from back surgery and am taking 2 Percocet 10mg every 8 hours per the directions. I ran out today and tomorrow is a holiday so I won't be able to get a script until Tuesday. I am not good at keeping track b/c the scripts are only for 15 days while most are for a month, but anyway. I have some 5mg vicodin - can I take those to get me through until I can fill the script for the Percocet? If so, how much should I take?
I realize this is a rather more conservative question than some, but I had one bad experience a couple of months ago when I ran out and I didn't take anything. I don't want to go through that again. If you have any advice I would appreciate it.
Again, I do understand that my situation is not anywhere near as dire as some that I have read about, but I am trying to be cautious as I am obviously experiencing some addiction already and want to get off the meds as soon as the doctor will implement a safe titration plan for me. In the meantime, I just want to get through the next few days.
