I have taken Percocet numerous times for pain in my knee. I have had 3 knee surgeries and being in the military this is about the best thing you can get. Taking one every four to six hours definately does not work. I wasn't to satisfied with the pain reliever and wish i could get something stronger. Also need to take a laxative while using these.

I have used this for Kidney Stone pain. Works great as long as I don't get behind on dosing. It did make me feel whoosy in the hour or so after taking it. Overall though it did not make me nauseus, an was effective. Thank goodness i had it or I would not have made it through without another Emergency Room trip for IV pain meds.

I'm using it for a recent broken bone and it seems to help. However, if I don't take it when scheduled the pain comes back and then it's hard to get control over it.
