I took 4 tablets of 5-325 roxicet (oxycodone + acetaminophen), could this be an overdose?

I took 4 tablets of 5-325 roxicet (oxycodone + acetaminophen), could this be an overdose?

Possibly: Everyone is different in their ability to tolerate opiate pain medications. If this was the first time you took this amount, it may be an overdose and if you feel sedated, I would seek medical care to avoid breathing problems. However if you have taken this amount in the past, you may be tolerant to the medication. You may want to discuss this with your doctor who is prescribing the medications. ...Read more

Can you tell me how your body react when you take roxicet (oxycodone 5mg + acetaminophen 325mg?

How many mg of percocet does a tylox (oxycodone and acetaminophen) 5/500 equal?

No way to know: In every person, because there are individual differences, but in general hydrocodone is about 1/3 to 1/2 less potent than oxycodone, so that it takes 7.5 mg of hydrocodone to get equivalent pain relief as 5 mg of oxycodone. There can no longer be 500 mg of tylenol in EITHER preparation - the new FDA rules mandate that no more than 325 mg of acetaminophen be in any combination tablet of tylenol. ...Read more

What to do if I have a prescription from surgery I had in june for tylox, (oxycodone and acetaminophen) so should I say I had been taking that?

For what purpose?: I don't understand your question. If you are being drug tested, and you have a valid recent opiate prescription, that is certainly something you can show them. However, if you are really using illicit drugs, it is FAR MORE IMPORTANT to face your drug problem and get help than it is to "beat" the drug test. If you have developed a drug problem, please get help. ...Read more
