Can I use Percodan if I'm taking an NSAID?

If you are taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), ask your doctor if you can use Percodan, a prescription pain reliever that is a combination of oxycodone and aspirin. The aspirin in Percodan is also an NSAID, and taking an excess of drugs in this category can be dangerous. If your doctor prescribes Percodan, he may decide to adjust your dosages, monitor you closely or both.

Before you start taking Percodan, give your doctor a complete list of all your prescription and over-the-counter medications as well as any supplements and vitamins that you take.
