I have used Percogesic for many many years, I had major back surgery several years ago,long story short I had ask them not to put me on morphine after surgery for personal reasons, I came out with a morphine drip,I had them immediately remove the drip and from that point on all I used for the pain control was the percogesic I had know from the start I would not want the stronger drugs and that the Percogesic had always controlled the pain from the broken back for many years before the surgery and I had known it would after and it did.
