Swelling due to medications.
Hello, I have a question. I have chronic back pain, siatica and so on. I've been on morphine, percocet, flexeril, celebrex and others for almost 10 years now. Just revemtly I've noticed whenever I take pervocet my feet, ankles, and legs swell. They never have before. It's been the last year or so. Is this normal? Or something I should worry about? It is painful though. Not sure what to think. I'm most positive it's the percocet though. Cause when I'm not taking them there is no swelling.

Re: Swelling due to medications.
I'd consult with your doctor and/or pharmacist. I haven't heard of that being a common potential side effect. Any chance you typically take the Percocet for increased pain due to increased activity, and it is the activity that is causing the swelling?
