What are the side effects of taking a 4mg Tizanidine three hours after having taken an oxycodone 5-325mg tablet

She takes NO medications, even OTC. She is 83 years young.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Actually there should be little if any side effects

The combination might make one a little drowsy but otherwise there'd be no problem with that

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
