Percodan Addiction and Abuse
Taking Percodan may cause certain side effects in some patients. More common side effects of Percodan, which do not require medical attention, include nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, increased sweating, dry mouth, lightheadedness, and weakness. These should all disappear with time. If they do not go away or worsen, let your doctor or pharmacist know.
Serious side effects of Percodan are rare. Notify your doctor immediately if you experience the following serious side effects of Percodan: slow or irregular heartbeat, mood changes, agitation, hallucinations, depression, confusion, difficulty urinating, ringing in the ears, decreased hearing, vision changes, easy bruising or bleeding, stomach or abdominal pain, black stools, vomit resembling coffee grounds, yellowing eyes or skin, dark urine, persistent nausea, signs of kidney problems, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.
Seek medical attention as soon as possible if you experience any of these severe side effects after taking Percodan: slow or shallow breathing, fainting, seizures, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, or signs of an allergic reaction such as rashes, itching or swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.
Make sure you take Percodan at the first sign of pain. If you wait until the pain has gotten worse, Percodan may not be as effective.
Remember, your Percodan dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase or decrease your Percodan dose without your doctor’s permission.
