Percosets

Were you looking for information about Percocet? Percosets is a common misspelling of Percocet.
 
Percocet® is a drug that is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain. The prescription narcotic is either taken "as needed" or on a scheduled basis. "As needed" means you will only take a dose if you are experiencing pain, while "scheduled use" means you should take it on schedule, even if you are not in pain. Most healthcare providers prescribe Percocet on an "as needed" basis, rather than a scheduled basis. Common side effects include constipation, drowsiness, and itchiness.
