I take 5mg of percocet 1-2 times daily and my level of pain goes to practically zero and i have a great peak in energy, better mood (even on my worst days). I can pretty much function like I never even have a problem. I do get side effects from med... like nausea and "weird -headed". I've been on 5mg for well over a year and never had the need to increase potency. Anyone else receive that much relief from such a small amount of narcotic?
