I suffer with Fibromyalgia, erosive Osteoartritis and bilateral carpal tunnel with a adhesive capsulitis left shoulder. Some of these conditions developed after my car was struck by a moving school bus. I have been able through therapy and doctor prescribed daily medication of oxycodone (oxycontin) 40 mg CR tablet with I take daily on a regular routine to keep my medical conditions to a comfortable level. My medication is monitored by Pain Management & Rheumatologist Clinic. I recently had surgery on my leg for melanoma and am suffering from gallstones, a bladder infection and kidney stone. Really in pain the "oxycontin 40 mg CR tablet" is a long term release and is not cutting through the present pain from gallbladder and kidney stones. The doctor is prescribing a medication "Acetaminophen-Oxydodone Hydrochloride tablet 325 mg-5 mg orally" to counter the gallbladder/kidney stones pain. I want to know is this Acetaminophen....the same as my daily medication "oxycontin 40 mg" or are they different and can they be taken at the same time? I am really hurting until the doctor can finish up diagnostic results and take a course of treatment but I want to make sure these medications can be taken together. I really would appreciate a response asap to make a decision on taking the medication....thank you

The 40mg oxycodone CR is for the regular pain, and the 10/325 percocet is for breakout pain,
and should only be taken when the CR is not enough to relieve the pain.

Hello, Marie! How are you?

Yes, they can be taken together, as long as your doctor approves. They are very commonly prescribed together, so that the 5/325 can help with breakthrough pain.

This is a lower dose of Oxycodone coupled with Acetaminophen and it works within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it, rather than being time released like your other medication.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with?
