  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Hope on Jun, 17, 2011:

    My sister and I both had root canals recently and were put on four percocet a day in conjunction with 2000 mg of penicillin. the first day my sister took the full dose and was fine, but then spent the next few days very nauseous and vomitting. I didn't even get through two percocet and 1000 mg on the first day before I vomitted more than ten times and spent the entire day horribly naseous. I'm backing myself down off of my dosage, and only taking one each of the pill a day. It was a horrible experience.
