Can I use Percodan if I'm taking an ACE inhibitor?

If you are taking an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, which is generally prescribed for high blood pressure, ask your doctor if you can take Percodan, a strong pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. Percodan may decrease the effect of an ACE inhibitor, so your doctor may need to adjust your dose.

Percodan may interact with many common medicines, so before you start taking it, you should give your doctor a complete list of all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, supplements and vitamins.
