Can I take Percocet if I am taking seizure medications?

Before you begin taking the pain medication Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) let your doctor know if you use a seizure medication such as carbamazepine (Tegretol) or phenytoin (Dilantin). Taking these medications in combination with acetaminophen (one of the active ingredients in Percocet) may increase your risk of liver damage. Your doctor will carefully monitor you while you're on Percocet, or he or she may decide not to give you the drug at all.
