Percodan Withdrawal and Detox
Common side effects associated with Percodan are nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, increased sweating, dry mouth, lightheadedness, and weakness. The majority of these common side effects do not require medical attention and should subside with time. If they happen to persist or worsen over time, let your doctor know.
You should notify your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any of the following after taking 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. These are serious side effects that have been associated with Percodan and your doctor can provide the necessary guidance to manage these side effects.
Seek medical attention immediately if you experience the following after taking Percodan: slow or shallow breathing, fainting, seizures, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, and signs of an allergic reaction such as rashes, itching or swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.
Products which have been shown to interact with Percodan are acetazolamide, mercaptopurine, methotrexate, cimetidine, corticosteroids, mifepristone, naltrexone, butorphanol, nalbuphine, and pentazocine. Percodan may also increase the risk of bleeding if it is taken with other products that may cause bleeding. Examples of these products include anti-platelet drugs and blood thinners such as dabigatran, enoxaparin, warfarin, and more.
Some medications can affect the removal of Percodan from the body and therefore change the effectiveness of the medications. Examples of such products include azole antifungals, macrolide antibiotics, HIV medications, rifamycins, and anti-seizure medications.
In addition, the risk of experiencing serious Percodan side effects will greatly increase if the medication is taken with other products that may cause drowsiness or breathing problems. These include codeine, hydrocodone, alcohol, cannabis, sleeping drugs, alprazolam, lorazepam, zolpidem, carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine, cetirizine, and diphenhydramine.
