Please answer! What kinds of side effects will be faced, if we take this percocet medicine with other drug medications.?

Pharmacist: That is a good question for the doc who prescribed it for you and the pharmacist who filled it. I would assume that you are having pain. Percocet is for moderate to severe pain when over the counter meds and rx anti-inflammatories are not effective. Percocet can interact with other meds that work centrally on the brain such as antidepressants and anxiety meds. Discuss with your pcp. ...Read more

Most common side effects of oxycodone (percocet) to relieve pains?

Most common side effects of oxycodone (percocet) to relieve pains?

See answer below: Constipation is going to be a big one. Dependence is another. Pain is a common part of life, and taking it away completely with oxycodone lowers the pain threshold which ultimately makes people feel more vulnerable and less tolerant to common, nonpathologic pains and aches. I would be very careful not to use oxycodone for chronic pain as other alternatives are better fitted for this purpose. ...Read more

When I take Vicodin or Percocet my tongue and throat swell but I can take morphine 4 Tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 without any side effects why is this and what if anythi?

You may have: Allergy to hydrocodone and/or oxycodone, but not morphine and/or codeine (Tylenol #3). It's unlikely you have allergic reaction against acetaminophen given it's an ingredient in Tylenol #3 which you say you had no problem with. I would stay away from hydrocodone and oxycodone in the future to avoid getting dangerous anaphylactic reactions. ...Read more

How long does percocet take to leaves out of your breastmilk? I had a C-section 6 days ago and was prescribed percocet fit the pain which I read could have bad effects.

It's fine: You had a c-section and Percocet is a reasonable thing to take-1-2 pills every 4-6hours. The concern is, if you take it prior to breastfeeding, sometimes the baby can become sleepy and not feed well. If your baby is feeding well, don't concern yourself about it. If you are concerned, try taking the Percocet just after breastfeeding, but no more often than prescribed. Be sure your doc communicates! ...Read more
