  1. Someone I know, stole my entire bottle of Percocet (10 mg). I only have two left. This person is a drug addict, but also my brother’s girlfriend who is drug addict and alcoholic. I usually hide them if I know she’s coming. This time, she went into my purse and stole the bottle…I didn’t know they were coming. I thought my boyfriend was in the room to watch her, but it turns out he wasn’t there the whole time. I have 15 days to go and of course, the pharmacies will not refill no matter what the circumstances, even with a police report filed. Anyway, I am experiencing HORRIBLE cramping in my stomach and of course the depression that you speak of in your articles. What if anything can I do at home to stop this cramping, etc. I am on my own, cannot go back to my doctor because I don’t drive (I have epilepsy and cannot drive yet).

  2. I have read your input regarding. Percocet….My question is. I take five to six tabs in a 24 he period. I tried methadone. but it’s not working for me. ..bevause I take five to six a day 24period
