Can I use Tylox if I have a history of seizures?

If you have a history of seizures, your doctor may be cautious about prescribing Tylox (acetaminophen and oxycodone) for you. This drug, which is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain on an as-needed basis, contains oxycodone, an opioid (narcotic) that can trigger seizures. In addition, certain medications used to treat seizures, such as carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenobarbital and phenytoin (Dilantin), can interact with oxycodone as well as with acetaminophen, the other drug in Tylox.
