Common Side Effects of Percocet
The oxycodone used in Percocet can cause physical dependence. It is important not to suddenly stop taking Percocet if you or your doctor believes you are physically dependent to Percocet. Suddenly stopping Percocet can cause withdrawal symptoms. Some of these symptoms include restlessness, sweating, chills, irritability, anxiety, backache, joint pain, weakness, abdominal cramps, insomnia, nausea, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, or increased blood pressure, breathing, or heart rate. Talk to your doctor if you are going to stop taking Percocet so that your doctor can gradually lower your dose of Percocet to prevent severe withdrawal.

Large doses of acetaminophen may damage your liver. Always check the labels of other medicines when you take Percocet to make sure you are not taking another drug that contains acetaminophen. Do not take more than 4 grams of acetaminophen within 24 hours.

Some medicines should not be taken with Percocet. Give your doctor a complete list of all the medicines that you take. Your doctor may advise you not to drink alcohol while taking Percocet, because alcohol may increase the risk of damaging your liver.

Taking Percocet may make you drowsy or dizzy. If you are taking Percocet, avoid driving, using machines, or doing anything potentially hazardous until you know how Percocet affects you.

Some common side effects of Percocet include:
  • Constipation
  • Mild light-headedness, sleepiness, or drowsiness
  • Mild nausea or vomiting
More serious Percocet side effects may include:
  • Dark-colored urine or pale stools
  • Extreme weakness, shallow breathing, uneven heartbeat, sweating, or cold or clammy skin
  • Light-headedness, dizziness, or fainting
  • Nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, or pain in the upper stomach
  • Trouble breathing
  • Yellowing of skin or the whites of your eyes
Contact your doctor immediately, or call 911 in an emergency, if you have any of these side effects while taking Percocet.

Get emergency help right away if you have an allergic reaction to Percocet, which may include itching; hives; swelling in your face, hands, mouth, or throat; tightness of the chest; or trouble breathing.
