Customer Question
Have a bad cold...

Have a bad cold, asthma and getting "coughing fits" that feel like my head will explode - I have been taking Vicks Dayquil and drinking lots of water, could I take a oxycodone tablet after I am free of other meds in my system so I could possibly rest/sleep?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take 1 red yeast rice tablet, 1 cosamin ds tablet, 1 Q10 - I have an asthma inhaler and I used it today once during an extreme coughing fit - I am allergic to clindymacin and pencilllin and timersol

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

I am diabetic, but do not take meds, it is controlled with exercise and diet (8 years) and I have a new knee replacement (a year old in Oct.) - my throat is sore with some pain in my ears. I previously spit up yellow mucus but now it is basically clear

Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Yes, after you are free of other meds in your system, it would be OK to take an oxycodone tablet.

When oxycodone is taken with other drugs that can be sedating, then there can be excessive sedation, and that would include sedating antihistamines. But since you will be free of other meds, there would not be that concern.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

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.
