I just had some toe surgery done (I have a new respect for athletes with toe injuries) and the doc gave me a prescription for Darvocet. I typically don't have good luck with prescription pain killers, they make me so nausious that it isn't worth the pain killing effect. Anyone else that has taken this stuff and how did it affect you?

I took it after neck surgery. It's good stuff. I had no problems.

My testicles have spoken, I'm going to be a tough guy and ignore the pain. Of course if my brain takes over I want to know if Darvocet is going to work out... ROFL

Took 1 or 2 and attended an illegal farm keg party. I wanted to stop right where I was and lay down and go to sleep. New I couldn’t, as I would have been left for dead. Sing along with Barbara..............."people............helping people.................."

I've been prescribed Darvocet and Percocet after surgeries. I took one of each, and they made me violently Barf.........It was easier to just take the pain like a good indian.

I'd make a horrible Druggy.

I didn't have any problems with Darvocet. Not sure if it killed the pain or just made it so I didn't give a shit, but it worked none the less.

I had some teeth cut out and took a darvocet after the anethesia wore off.

I was the happiest person in the world for a short while, then my arms and legs detached themselves from my body so I couldn't really move beyond flopping myself around on the bed then I passed out.

It was fun.

Yep. It's a nice, soft mellow. Darvocet is not very strong, so I wouldn't worry too much about nausea.

Percocet, on the other hand...

I've been on Percocet 7.5/325 for almost two straight years for back pain. Take 6 a day (7 on bad days).

Had back surgery 2 years ago, and will need another this summer, so that's not likely to change soon :sulk:

They don't really make me feel any different, other than dulling a pain in my lower-left back and hip.

Imagine having a knife stuck in your back, and every once in a while, someone strikes the knife with a hammer. That's what I go through 24/7.

Take that, wussies.

maybe it was percocet that made my arms fall off.

Now I'm not sure. At any rate though, I believe any medicine ending in "cet" will probably make for a good time.

Yeah, this was the post I was afraid of. I'm the same way, drugs make me sick. After my last knee surgery they gave me the stuff they shoot pregnant chicks with to keep them from barfing and assured me that would work. It didn't.

:) ROFL

I don't use them much but they are great to have around in case of a hangover or for emergencies. Ever since I broke my shoulder riding dirt bikes I have never went out again without a few vicodin in the glovebox.

Actually I am fine I am just kidding with you. Don't throw them away though, give them to somebody who will use them if you don't.

On another note antibiotics are far worse than a few pain pills if you want to make the comparison. I rarely take anything.

Hell, I once went two weeks with 7 fractured bones in my left hand, some of which had chipped and were just floating around, and took nothing, so it's not that I have a low tolerance for pain.

When one has a degenerative disk condition like I have, and your discs are gone, and you've got three vertebrae rubbing and pounding against each other, and moving your arm even an inch feels like someone is slicing you open with a red hot chainsaw from your neck to your toes, you suddenly realize what pain really and truly is all about.

It's freaking crippling some times.

He was working in the woodshop one day and cut his pinky finger. It was just hanging on my a freaking piece of skin. He walks into the house and asked where the tape was so he could fix it.

I've taken them without any problem, but then I haven't had any problem with any of the pain killers and I've taken quit a few different kinds.

If the pain is tolerable and you don't want to risk it then that's the way I'd go, but if you need something try the darvocet and if it doesn't work have your doctor give you hydrocodone or one of the others. Surely something will work for you. Good luck!

Actually, I now have three vertebrae fused together.

At least they're SUPPOSED to be fused. Unfortunately, one of the screws is loose (insert joke here) and there is what my new Dr. calls "possible non-union" on the left side.

It hurts worse now than it did before.

Darvocet affects me the same way. Nothing. Dentists hand it out like candy. You may as well take a couple of Tylenol for all the good Darvocet does. I always ask for Vicodin. 3 of those and I'm just a happy person. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :)

I had surgery for an umbilical hernia about 4 or 5 years ago. They gave me Darvocet. At home shortly after the surgery I was thinking "damn, I don't feel any pain" and "I won't be needing that Darvocet". Then slowly the anesthesia started wearing off and I realized that Darvocet was my best friend. :D

Actually, that one wasn't so bad. Getting a vasectomy required a lot of pain medicine for a week and a half. That really sucked. But I don't remember now what kind he prescribed for that. I just remember running out before they were scheduled to run out and calling him asking to give me a new prescription. :D

Damn Mark, that x-ray looks alot like my back. I crushed a disc about 5 years ago . I went to the emergemcy room after laying on the floor for 2 days straight. They shot me up with demerol and took some x-rays. Gave me a script for pain meds and told me to see my regular Dr.
I spent two years letting him adjust my back and eating pain meds. I finally got to where I couldn't hardly work and it didn't matter how much pain med. I took. Decided to talk to a surgeon and see if there was anything he could do. That was the first time I seen an x-ray of my back.:eek: L4-L5 were smashed together so bad the edges of them were curling out and had several pieces broken off. and the two discs above them were getting pretty thin. I ended up having a 360 degree fusion on L4-L5. I have the cages, plate, and screws too. Decided, at the time, to leave the other ones alone. Looks like I might have to have something done to them before to long though. My back is better than it was before the surgery but I'm afraid it's just a matter of time before I'm back to the way I was before.

Oh yea, the pain meds. I've gotten to where my tolerance for any kind of opiate is so high ( took them every day for 5 years) the amount I have to take for any kind of relief is so high I decided a few months ago to just try and tough it out. I figured WTF, I can take a fistfull of fuggin pills (probably enough to OD the average person) and get a little relief or I can not take them, still be in pain either way but at least my body will be a lot healthier. I still have days where I have to take them but overall I feel a helluva lot better,physical and mentally.

Okay, done blabbing about me. I seriously hope your Dr. can do something for you, I know very well what you go through every single day and it sucks. If your Dr. is able to do something about the 'non union' let me know would ya ? I''m pretty sure my fusion isn't ...well....fused right ( even though my surgeon says he can't see anything wrong with it) and I'm always looking for any info I can get that might help with my back.

When I had back problems it was from sitting on my ass all day typing on a computer.... probably why so many people here have back problems. When I dropped 45 pounds and started hitting the gym, my back problems went away. Then I got a hernia from lifting too much at the gym... go figure. I just had surgury last monday for the hernia, had darvocet in recovery, made me sick. Got good ol' tylenol w/codine when I left, and again the nausea was worse that the pain I was having. So anyway, I'm counting down the days, have about 2 weeks to go before I can start hitting the gym again.

I took a darvocet, a hydrocodone and a loritab all at the same time a week ago today, and I felt like I was back in the early 90's again. I usually mix 2 different pain meds to get a better effect, but dont ask me why I did three different ones that day. I take them mostly for my back problems.

I like hydrocodone the best. Feels like you are doing speed and it dulls the pain.

Darvocet is prescribed alot for dental work so I would say it propably works well.

Loritab never took one by itself, not sure about it. Sta away from tordall, it will make you puke.

Most work better on a full stomach.
