I had my wisdom teeth out on Friday and was prescribed

This answer was rated:

I had my wisdom teeth out on Friday and was prescribed Percocet 5/325. How long do I need to wait after taking a pill before I can drink alcohol? 4 hours?
Hi--assuming there's no bleeding from the sockets, you can drink alcohol in moderation after at least four hours after taking a Percocet, but be careful since even then the combination may make you drowsy and affect your reaction time, so you shouldn't drive if you combine the two in the same day

Sounds good. Should I limit myself to only a few beers since I've taken Percocet today?

I'd suggest no more than two beers, one an hour
