How to avoid occasional crippling nausea when taking oxycodone?
posted by anonymous to Health & Fitness (13 answers total)
I am currently taking high doses of Tylenol with codeine, and will be graduating to Percocet later this week, if my meeting with my doctor goes as I think it will. I'll be on it for a few months while I wait for surgery, and then recover from surgery. I went through this situation before a couple years ago, when I was on it for 4 months, and while I was ok most of the time, there were a couple instances where I couldn't get out of bed for 2 days and couldn't hold down any food. I attribute it to the Percocet because I hardly ever get sick like that. I always take the tablets with a little food (saltines or what have you), and most of the time my stomach isn't bothered at all (and no constipation either), but I'd like to avoid getting hit by occasional severe nausea, if at all possible. I'll be asking my doctor for her suggestions, but I'd like to hear your experiences/suggestions as well. Thanks in advance!
