i can't take codoine want to know if this pill has it in it
Oxycodone does not contain codiene though it is chemically similar in structure to codiene. Whether you would be able to take it, since it is similar to codeine, can't say for sure. Depending on how you react to codeine, you would just have to try and see if you could tolerate it.
Hydrocodone is a synthetic form of codiene and can be found in drugs like vicodin and norco. Typicaly if someone is allergic to codiene they will be allergic to hydrocodone as well but not absolutley.
Percocet contains acetimitophen and oxycodone. If you are allergic to codiene it is recomended that you don't take oxycodone because there is a good chance you will be allergic to that as well.
That being said, I am allergic to Codiene and Hydrocodone plus other opiate pain killers but I'm not allergic to Oxycodone. I would definetley talk to your doc before giving Oxycodone a try.
Hope this helps. Good Luck
Laurie is so right! I have a relative who cannot tolerate codeine but yet she can tolerate hydrocodone and of course the only way they were able to be sure was administer the hydrocodone to her and see how she reacted. fortunately it was tolerable for her but that doesn't happen for everyone.
