perkocet's hinder gains?
two years ago I took a thirtyfoot fall at work,damaging a couple of disks in my lower back, Besides getting rid of sqats and deadlifts from my routine I have been activley bodybuilding since. My doctor has had me on perkocets as a pain reliver,my question is if I dont let the meds suppress my appitite can this drud hinder my gains in any other way on or off cycle. I take around 20-30mgs of perkocet daily.

I'm not familar with the drug, I personally would make core training a corner stone in my training program if recovering from an injury.

My input is to stay off that shit, man. It may not hinder your gains directly, but indirectly it WILL mess you up very badly. It's a highly addictive drug, believe me, my brother is addicted to it and it has thrown him off his regimine.
Is there anything you can do to fix the discs? If so, do it. Percs only mask the pain, and that is not what you want to do.

Percocet is a NSAID (non-steriodial anti-inflam. drug) being a class 2 controlled substance! It is an anti-inflam. when working out you want to break down the muscle fibers, im not sure if suppressing the prostaglandins would have any effect on nutrient uptake, but i will bet my BIG TOE it does. If it supresses your appetite, how do you expect to adequate cals? As someone said before narcotics ARE addictive! and only mask the pain... good luck to you brother.
