Has anyone been allergic to percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) pain medication, and if so, what happened?
Not t Typically: Allergies usually don't occur with opioids of any type. But all do have side effects such as itching, nausea, constipation, and initially drowsiness and respiratory depression. Some of the opioids cause more than others. Percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) does contain Aspirin which some people can have serious reactions such as severe asthma possibly death. Also, no Aspirin in those under 18 or so with fever.. ...Read more
Don't mix: First of all, nobody should take methamphetamine as it is dangerous and illegal. Meth can cause neurological damage as well as damage the heart, cause strokes, and death. Percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) is an opiate and can suppress the brain's signals that tell us to breathe. Overdose with an opiate can lead to death from respiatory arrest. Meth + Percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) may have some drug interactions that are unknown/ unstudied. ...Read more

Can you tell me how a doctor decide whether to prescribe percocet or percodan (oxycodone and aspirin)?
Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen): If an individual has an acute injury and will need a strong pain reliever for a short time, it really doesn't matter much which drug the doctor recommends. People with history of ulcers shouldn't take Aspirin (which is in Percodan) and people with liver problems should avoid tylenol (acetaminophen) (Percocet). If they are to be used long-term, Percocet is better tolerated than an Aspirin containing medication. ...Read more
Bone pain: If the Percocet works, then Oxycontin or MS Contin (morphine) would probably be decent choices. The dosing for these meds is every 8-12 hours and you can use a different medication for breakthrough pain. Other meds like steroids and NSAIDs may help. Localized radiation may help. Depends on type of cancer.Getting cancer under control is most impt regarding both health AND pain relief. ...Read more
Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read more
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read more
No: The pain is minimal with skin testing, similar testing can be done with a blood test which requires some blood being withdrawn with a needle. ...Read more
Symptoms do not appear for hours or even days. Poison ivy and similar plants cause some of the best-known delayed hypersensitivity reactions. When a person first touches the plant, no reaction occurs for the first 24 to 48 hours.

Does exposing small children to peanuts earlier in life make them more likely to develop allergies?
Could incorporating locally grown honey into my children's diet, help with their seasonal allergies?
Not at all: It is a common misconception that eating local honey helps allergies. Local honey contains pollen from local flowers. People generally have little exposure to and aren't allergic to flower pollen (except florists). Wind pollinated trees, grasses and weeds which release huge amounts of pollen cause most allergies. Eating pollen has no effect on allergies though holding pollen under the tongue may. ...Read more
I read that children under 1year can not eat any dairy products because they might be more liable to allergy or asthma. Is it true?
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
Yes: Not all of the food allergies are created equal. Food allergies like dairy, egg, wheat tend to be outgrown. Tree nut and peanut are less likely (although recent studies suggest that 20-30% outgrow the peanut allergy). Environmental allergies tend to "grow on you" with time. Note: the allergy test may remain positive despite the child having outgrown the allergy. Consult with an allergist. ...Read more
