Is it dangerous to take acetaminophen with codeine and oxycodone?

Depends . Mixing two different opioids (codeine and oxycodone) may not be a good idea as this can lead to cumulative effects. In addition to this, the total dose of Acetaminophen has to be considered. It would be best to disclose all the medications you are taking to your doctor and decide and would be most appropriate for you and just stay on it. Read more...

I'm on Oxycodone HCL 10 MG for post-surgery. I have severe Bronchial cough & can't stop coughing. They gave me Mucinex/codeine syrup. Can I take both?

No. Although codeine is a weak narcotic, it is still not a good idea to take both narcotics at the same time. You can get plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) over the counter and use that instead of the Mucinex (guaifenesin) with codeine. If cough persists please see your doctor as sometimes an inhaler or an antibiotic might be needed. Read more...
