Can you please tell me why while taking Percocet 5-325 I am lethargic round the clock and can barely function, but several years back on Oxycodon 10mg - ? (can't recall), I was at least able to daily tasks such as make my food, do the dishes along with other house hold chores, and in general, I had more energy too, while the pain was diminished as well? From what I understand there is not that much difference between the two? Also on the Percocet I experience nausea and decreased appetite too. Thank you

Hello, Lucy! How are you?

Percocet contains Oxycodone coupled with Acetaminophen, it tends to augment the effects of the Oxycodone in some people that take it, so you are probably experiencing more side effects than you did with the Oxycodone alone.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Our bodies also change with time and we tend to experience more intense side effects, as we age.

Is there anything else I can help with?
