With your baseline opioid regimen, the shortened dosing interval is unlikely to create significant problems beyond possibly some sedation, nausea and constipation - though everyone's different and have a low threshold to contact your doc. You also need to watch the amount of Tylenol (acetaminophen) you are taking as you really want to avoid consuming more than 3 grams/day(basically what's found in 9 Percocets).
