Can I use Percodan if I'm taking a beta-blocker?

If you are taking a beta-blocker, ask your doctor if you can take Percodan, a strong pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. The effect of the beta-blocker may be reduced if you take it in combination with Percodan, so your doctor may adjust your dose.

Many common medicines may interact with Percodan, so give your doctor a complete list of all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as any supplements or vitamins you take.
