What is acetaminophen and oxycodone?

Oxycodone is an opioid pain medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.

Acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of oxycodone.

The combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.

Acetaminophen and oxycodone may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking acetaminophen and oxycodone?

Multum donot

Do not use this medication if you are allergic to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or oxycodone.

Multum emt

Tell your doctor if you have ever had alcoholic liver disease (cirrhosis) or if you drink more than 3 alcoholic beverages per day. You may not be able to take medicine that contains acetaminophen.

To make sure you can safely take acetaminophen and oxycodone, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:

  • asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or other breathing disorders;
  • liver or kidney disease;
  • a history of head injury or brain tumor;
  • epilepsy or other seizure disorder;
  • low blood pressure;
  • a stomach, intestinal, or pancreas disorder;
  • underactive thyroid;
  • Addison's disease or other adrenal gland disorder;
  • enlarged prostate, urination problems;
  • curvature of the spine;
  • mental illness; or
  • a history of drug or alcohol addiction.
Multum habit

Oxycodone may be habit forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Never share acetaminophen and oxycodone with another person, especially someone with a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a place where others cannot get to it.

Multum nopreg

FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether this medication is harmful to an unborn baby, but it could cause breathing problems or addiction/withdrawal symptoms in a newborn. Before you take acetaminophen and oxycodone, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.

Multum nobrfeed

Acetaminophen and oxycodone may pass into breast milk and could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How should I take acetaminophen and oxycodone?

Multum donot

Take exactly as prescribed. Never take acetaminophen and oxycodone in larger amounts, or for longer than recommended by your doctor. An overdose of acetaminophen can damage your liver or cause death. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain.

One acetaminophen and oxycodone tablet may contain up to 650 mg of acetaminophen. Know the amount of acetaminophen in the specific product you are taking.

Measure liquid medicine with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Multum water

Drink 6 to 8 full glasses of water daily to help prevent constipation while you are taking acetaminophen and oxycodone. Do not use a stool softener (laxative) without first asking your doctor.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using acetaminophen and oxycodone. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.

Multum rt

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Keep track of the amount of medicine used from each new bottle. Oxycodone is a drug of abuse and you should be aware if anyone is using your medicine improperly or without a prescription.

Always check your bottle to make sure you have received the correct pills (same brand and type) of medicine prescribed by your doctor. Ask the pharmacist if you have any questions about the medicine you receive at the pharmacy.

After you have stopped using this medication, flush any unused pills down the toilet.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since acetaminophen and oxycodone is taken as needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are taking the medication regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember.
