Can I use Magnacet if I have a history of low blood pressure?

The pain medication Magnacet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) can cause your blood pressure to drop, so your doctor may adjust your prescription or avoid giving you Magnacet at all if you already have low blood pressure because of low blood volume or from taking other medication. If you're taking Magnacet, let your doctor know if you feel faint when you rise from a sitting or lying position. This is a common symptom of low blood pressure. For many people, remembering to get up slowly solves the problem.
