These events may happen without warning and may cause death. This risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time
    NSAIDs such as naproxen may cause ulcers, bleeding, or holes in the stomach or intestine. These problems may develop at any time during treatment, may happen without warning symptoms, and may cause death. The risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time, are older in age, have poor health, or who drink three or more alcoholic drinks per day while taking naproxen.
    basically, DONT drink on this stuff, DONT take it on a empty stomach, and DONT be on it for more than 2-3 weeks at a time. If your in pain, something is wrong..... if it doesn't "feel better" after 2-3 weeks you need to go see a specialist and get the problem figured out that way. Naproxen is a anti-inflammatory that is just honestly not good for you at all. It is a very serious medication and should really only be taken if you really need it for a short period of time

    He's using the working up system. Odds are he said to come back to him if the pain is still bad? Your doctor doesn't want to jump on in and prescribe to you something like roxanol when a lower risk of side effects NSAID will be suffice. It's like troubleshooting, they will try the lowest thing, then work up on the seriousness.

    One thing a great doctor told me was that if I did have pain, don't be afraid to tell a(/your) doctor about it. He was the one who did my hip surgery after finding the problem of SCFE on an X-Ray my ex-doctor didn't... 6 months before .

    If you want to experience the effects of the hydrocodone in vicodin without having to deal with the liver damage associated with all of that acetaminophen you can put them through cold-water extraction and seperate them. You can do it in about 5 minutes, all you need is water, some cups and a coffee filter. You can look it up, or anyone can PM for details. It's a good way to get the hydrocodone while saving your liver. It works with all other opiates too. (codeine, oxycodone, etc.)

    Gulp! My doctor just prescribed me Vicodin and Flexeril for severe back spasms and pain resulting from herniated discs. He's the second doctor who has prescribed this combination for me in the past several years.

    Don't get nervous Bro...I take Percocet 10/325 and Soma all the time. Its not going to kill you unless you pop them like Skittles. I have 4 titanium plates in my neck and a very very large thoracic disc herniation. The meds allow me to have a close to normal life. I would never be able to workout without them. Oh yeah I had an MRI on my shoulder a couple of weeks ago and I have 3 tendon tears. Talk about hurt like a ***** when lifting heavy. Screw it, I'm tired of surgeries.

    Many thanks for sharing that! The Vicodin wasnít quite strong enough for my pain, so the doctor gave me a script for Percocet to take along with the Flexeril. Tomorrow morning I have my second lumbar MRI to see if the discs have undergone any further damage.

    Out of curiosity, and in keeping with the main subject of the thread, are you taking any performance enhancement stuff while consistently using the Percocet? If so, have doctors ever checked your liver enzymes to see how youíre responding to perpetual use of the drug? Iím in the midst of PCT myself right now, and there are certain things that I donít dare stop taking while popping the Percocet. Though we all respond differently to such things, it would be encouraging to hear that a fellow iron combatant has combined the two with minimal risk.

    I hear you on the surgery front. Iíve got a torn labrum in my right shoulder and three herniated discs in my lower back, and Iíve been avoiding the knife for years. But, dude, titanium plates and three tendon tears make me look healthy! I wish you the best of luck in the healing process!

    I'm on prescribed HRT/TRT through my Endo. Both my Endo. and Ortho. check my liver values every 3 months or so and they have never been elevated.

  11. no, you need to stop taking the drive and rpm. the naringin inhibits the cytochrome enzyme that metabolites acetaminophen (which is in oxycodone & percocet) along with a lot of other xenobiotic drugs, which could lead up to a buildup of said drug in your body. so anytime you go on a prescription, you must come off drive/rpm

    and to be fairly controversial... i think taking rpm/drive on a regular basis is dangerous whether you are on scripts or not. cy p450 is good, turning it off is stupid & dangerous

    is it 405? could of sworn it was 450?

    I don't mean to be nitpicky, I just grew up around CYP450 research, literally .

  13. i wouldnt recommend it, its like smoking weed and doing coke, mixing and upper with a downer, your basically relaxing your muscles to a big point with an opiate, just to pump them back up with working out and supplements.
