Percocet contains a blend of acetaminophen and oxycodone. Oxycodone is a narcotic agony medicine. A narcotic is at times called an opiate. Acetaminophen is a less intense agony reliever that expands the impacts of oxycodone. Percocet is utilized to calm moderate to extreme agony. Due of the danger
Use the lowest effective dosage for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals
Initiate the dosing regimen for each patient individually, taking into account the patient’s severity of pain, patient response, prior analgesic treatment experience, and risk factors for addiction, abuse, and misuse
Initiating Treatment with PERCOCET
The usual adult dosage is one tablet every 6 hours as needed for pain. The total daily dose of acetaminophen should not exceed 4 grams.
|Strength||Usual Adult Dosage||Maximal|
|PERCOCET 2.5 mg/325 mg||1 or 2 tablets every 6 hours as neededfor pain||12 Tablets|
|PERCOCET 5 mg/325 mg||1 tablet every 6 hours as needed for pain||12 Tablets|
|PERCOCET 7.5 mg/325 mg||1 tablet every 6 hours as needed for pain||8 Tablets|
|PERCOCET 10 mg/325 mg||1 tablet every 6 hours as needed for pain||6 Tablets|
The relative bioavailability of Oxycodone Hydrochloride and Acetaminophen Tablets or Oral Solution compared to extended-release oxycodone is unknown, so conversion to extended-release oxycodone must be accompanied by close observation for signs of excessive sedation and respiratory depression.
Titration and Maintenance of Therapy
Individually titrate PERCOCET to a dose that provides adequate analgesia and minimizes adverse reactions. Continually reevaluate patients receiving PERCOCET to assess the maintenance of pain control and the relative incidence of adverse reactions, as well as monitoring for the development of addiction, abuse, or misuse . Frequent communication is important among the prescriber, other members of the healthcare team, the patient, and the caregiver/family during periods of changing analgesic requirements, including initial titration.
If the level of pain increases after dosage stabilization, attempt to identify the source of increased pain before increasing the PERCOCET dosage. If unacceptable opioid-related adverse reactions are observed, consider reducing the dosage. Adjust the dosage to obtain an appropriate balance between management of pain and opioid-related adverse reactions.
