My husband was addicted to percocets. He said they gave him a euphoric feeling. I took percs for my c section. They got rid of my pain and that was it.
i take them until i go for my knee replacement sucks but id rather not live in pain and be able to actually do things with my daughter
They are highly addictive. They're opiates, like heroine. If you take them regularly and stop, you will withdraw. Once the physical effectives wear off, you are still left with the psychological ones. Some people are more prone to addiction than others.

Nope! I don't even like taking them for pain. I think some people in my family do though. I see the addiction all the time. I feel they quit on addiction to get addicted to something else. I am actually angry that it is so easy to get these days. I feel that the pharmaceutical industry is banking on peoples addictions. There are healthy ways to use the pain meds. Have a program to work on getting you off of them. I see a lot of people who get surgery and get these pain meds. Usually two or three types of meds and they stay on them for ever.

Quoting Anonymous:I have a broken ankle. I take them. I think I'm addicted. I use them to sleep. I've found myself taking them two at a time sometimes. I can't sleep without taking one. But I haven't really taken them the past three days
