Oxycodone And Prednisone

lisa Says:

If I took a 20 mg of prednisone this morning for my bad knee, can I take a 5 mg of oxycodone later in the evening if I can't take the pain?

Hello, Lisa! How are you?

That should be fine, as long as they've both been prescribed by your doctor. I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between the two, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. However, these medications are often prescribed together.

Prednisone is classified by the FDA as a steroid that is used to treat swelling, inflammation, allergic reactions and immune disorders. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, fluid retention, acne and insomnia.

Oxycodone is classified 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?
