What are the possible side effects of Tylox?

The prescription pain medication Tylox (acetaminophen and oxycodone) can bring on many side effects. Some are common and generally not serious—although you should let your doctor know if you experience any symptoms that are bothersome or won't go away. Among the most common side effects of Tylox are gastrointestinal problems like nausea, vomiting and constipation; itching or sweating; weakness or light-headedness; moodiness; and changes in your eyes.

Tylox can also cause serious side effects. You should receive medical help if you develop any of the following while taking Tylox:
  • changes in your breathing or heart rate
  • allergic reactions such as hives or swelling of any part of your face, hands or lower legs
  • confusion or hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that aren't really there)
  • dizziness or fainting
These are only some of the potential side effects of Tylox. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for a complete list of side effects and what you should do if you experience any of them.
