Can I take Percodan if I have a history of kidney disease?

If you have a history of kidney disease, ask your doctor if you can take Percodan, a strong pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. People who have certain kidney conditions may not be able to take Percodan or may need to be monitored closely.

Percodan can sometimes cause trouble with urinating. People taking Percodan should notify their doctor as soon as possible if they experience trouble urinating or changes in the amount of urine they are passing.
