Interactions between your drugs
oxycodone ↔ armodafinil
Applies to:Percocet (acetaminophen/oxycodone) and Nuvigil (armodafinil)
Armodafinil may reduce the blood levels of oxyCODONE, which may make the medication less effective in treating your pain. Additionally, if you have been receiving treatment with oxyCODONE, adding armodafinil may cause you to experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, yawning, excessive sweating, goose bumps, fever, chills, flushing, restlessness, irritability, anxiety, depression, pupil dilation, tremor, rapid heart beat, body aches, involuntary twitching and kicking, abdominal cramping, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. On the other hand, if you have been receiving both medications, discontinuing armodafinil may increase the blood levels of oxyCODONE, which could lead to an overdose. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact, or you may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
