Should I change my activities while taking oxymorphone?

While you are taking oxymorphone, it may be necessary for you to adjust some of your activities. For instance, you may need to get out of bed slowly, letting your feet rest on the floor for a while. This will help prevent any dizziness you may feel after you have been laying down. Also, if you drink alcohol you must stop, as this can cause serious side effects. Also consider adding more fiber to your diet to help with constipation. You may feel unsteady at times, so you should limit driving and operating heavy machinery. Talk with your doctor about lifestyle changes you need to make.
