... which is "Oxycodone and Acetomenophin" as you know. Is Oxycodone the same as Codeine? Or Is it different and safe to use?

Kaismama is correct. I am allergic to codeine but I can take oxycodone just fine. Oxycodone is a semisynthetic alkaloid derived from thebaine where codeine is a natural alkaloid of morphine from the opium poppy. There is a good chance you can take oxycodone in spite of the codeine allergy unless you are allergic to all opioids. Oxycodone and codeine are different drugs. Is your codeine allergy a true allergy-either rash or difficulty breathing, swelling of the face or airway? Or is it an intolerance like nausea, dizziness, vomiting? Most people who think they have an allergy to codeine actually just have an intolerance to it.

I'm allergic to Codeine too, but can take percocet with no problem! Percocet, Hydrocodone, etc, is usually what they prescribe to ppl who are allergic to codeine. Oxycodone is a synthetic and as I said it is usually prescribed to people who are allergic to codeine. You should be fine. good luck!
