I took one tablet at five, and then went to a bar with some friends at seven thirty. I had about four drinks and it is now 23:30. Will I be safe to go to sleep or should I try and stay up an hour or two? I had about two drinks the last two nights as well after taking my dose. It doesn’t get me any sort of high, nor does it help with the pain. I don’t feel any different than I usually do when I drink. Hello, I’m currently recovering from foot surgery. I take 5/25 percocets about twice a day for four days not.

Hello Bishley. Mood disorders and anger can be present during drug withdrawal, but medical help is possible. Have you considered a medical detox?
Hi Robert. Call the National Poison Control Center at and ask for medical advice on how to proceed. But it’s my feeling that if you don’t feel normal, you should follow your instinct and seek medical help immediay.
