    When I started using Percs he used 5mg orally. This gave him a nice feeling and lasted about 4 hours. After about a year I had to go to 10mg also oral to get the same feeling. Now the 10's are not cuting it. I have used the grapefruit, tums and empty stomach to potentiate the Percs. It looks now like Swim will have to abstain for a while to get the habit down. What Swim needs to know is about how long to abstain to get more out of the dose to which I have developed a tolerance.

    Tolerance might go away but it comes back with a vegence probally after the first of second time.

    I would abstain for at least 2 weeks, to guarentee a drop in tolerance. Tolerance does build up quickly, though, so watch out. Also, if You has been taking the Percocet every day for the last year, he is dependant on it, and should cut down slowly, to prevent withdrawl (which is NOT fun).
