Answer by  samster (63)

Percocet is not supposed to be crushed up. It is meant to be swallowed whole. Snorting percocet can cause a lot things like respitory failure becasue its a powerful narcotic when snorted you get more of the drug than if it was absorbed through the stomach. It is very dangerous and can lead to death.

It is acetaminophin and oxycodone. Too much acetaminophin causes liver damage. Oxycodone is habit-forming and results in withdrawal symptoms when stopped. An overdose of Percocet can be fatal.

Percocet can be deadly if snorted and/or used excessively. It can cause respiratory depression, meaning your body doesn't know to breath. It can also cause liver failure.

You should not snort anything period. You could mess up your sense of smelling, or start having a nose bleed all of the time.

sure it's dangerous, what isn't these days? I've been snorting perks for 6 years and I guess so far I've been lucky, no problems what so ever. My tolerance for them has gone way up though, takes way more to get high now.
