My liver counts are off, had to stop pain pill. Is there straight Percocet without Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Will that be safe for my liver? I'm dying in pain.

My liver counts are off, had to stop pain pill. Is there straight Percocet without Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Will that be safe for my liver? I'm dying in pain.

Pain medication: There is oxycodone which has no Tylenol (acetaminophen). There should be zero effect on the liver in the absence of Tylenol (acetaminophen). A more important question would be why are you in so much pain that you require narcotic medication and why was your liver unable to tolerate a small amount of Tylenol (acetaminophen) that is in Percocet? ...Read more

Is 2275mg of acetaminophen enough to overdose? A friend of mine texted me about taking 7 5/325 Percocet and I'm scared for him.

Is 2275mg of acetaminophen enough to overdose? A friend of mine texted me about taking 7 5/325 Percocet and I'm scared for him.

Generally not: but depends on whether it was combined with alcohol or not. The toxic dose of acetaminophen is usually in the range of 7000-10,000 mg, but almost any amount of alcohol can cause smaller amounts to be toxic. If your friend values your opinion, and understands that you are concerned about him, see if you can get him to see a counselor regarding his drug use BEFORE there is a worse problem. ...Read more

I'm taking 5-325mg percocet. which percocet contains no tylenol (acetaminophen)?

There aren't any: Let me explain - "Cet or cette" at the end of medications means it contains acetaminophen or tylenol. The active opiate in the medication is Oxycodone, and oxycodone comes without tylenol in both brand-name and generic versions, including Roxicet, which comes in 5, 10, 15 and 30 mg strengths. It also comes in sustained release long-acting versions in doses ranging from 10mg - 80 mg. ...Read more

Please advise if it's okay to mix one percocet 30 and one tylenol (acetaminophen) #3?

Please advise if it's okay to mix one percocet 30 and one tylenol (acetaminophen) #3?

If prescribed: but I have a feeling that it isn't prescribed, at least for you. There is no "Percocet 30" because Percocet contains tylenol (acetaminophen) as well, and the 30 mg strength means it is plain oxycodone. There is no reason to mix it with Codeine unless you are going for abuse, i.e. getting high. If you are not tolerant to opioids, 30 mg is a sedating dose, and adding 30 mg of Codeine adds to the sedation. So, NO. ...Read more
