Can I use Percodan if I'm taking acetazolamide (Diamox)?

If you are taking acetazolamide (Diamox), a medication for glaucoma and other conditions, you may not be able to take Percodan, a strong pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. The aspirin in Percodan can raise your blood level of acetazolamide, which can be dangerous.
