Oxycet is a prescription medication used to relieve moderate to severe pain and suppress coughing. It has a similar profile to other pain-relievers like morphine, codeine, and hydrocodone.
Oxycet is classified as an opioid analgesic and reduces pain by changing the way that the brain responds to it. The medication stimulates opioid receptors in the brain, which then decreases discomfort rather than eliminating the pain altogether.
Just like any medication, starting treatment with Oxycet may produce side effects in some patients. Common side effects of Oxycet which typically do not require medical attention include lightheadedness, dizziness, sedation, euphoria, dysphoria, rash, itching, nausea, and vomiting. Other less common side effects which still do not require medical attention are drowsiness, constipation, and spasms of the ureter which can lead to difficulty urinating. Many of these side effects should go away with time. If they do not go away or get any worse, let your doctor know.
Serious side effects associated with Oxycet include severe reduction in blood pressure, shock, seizures, paralytic ileus, serious allergic reactions, and severe skin reactions. Let your doctor know right away if you notice any of these symptoms.
This is not a complete list of Oxycet side effects. If you believe that you are experiencing a side effect of the medication that is not listed above, consult with your doctor.
Oxycet can depress the respiratory system. For this reason, elderly patients or those who have serious lung diseases should use caution while using this medication. Oxycet may also impair one’s ability to drive or operate other large machinery.
