Who should not use aspirin and oxycodone?

Children who have an infection or are ill with the flu or chicken pox should not use any product containing aspirin, as serious side effects can occur.

Moreover, anyone who has had a previous allergic reaction to aspirin, oxycodone, codeine, morphine or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should not use aspirin and oxycodone. In addition, people with a history of bleeding issues and ulcers or bowel blockages and certain other intestinal conditions should not use aspirin and oxycodone, nor should those with severe breathing problems and asthma or previous liver and kidney issues.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding need to speak to their doctors before using aspirin and oxycodone. Also, anyone with a history of addiction or drug or alcohol abuse should not use aspirin and oxycodone because of the addictive qualities of the drug.
