If you have a history of intestinal problems, ask your doctor if you can take Percodan, a strong pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. Be sure to mention any problems with constipation, because Percodan itself can cause this condition. People who have certain intestinal problems, especially paralytic ileus (a condition in which food does not move through the intestines), may not be able to take Percodan or may need to be monitored closely.
