    Does anyone has heart problem and can't take Percocet or meds containg acitomophen?

    Hello everyone!
    I was told because I am taking now (new for me) Beta-blockers and Coumadin for my heart problem, I can't take Percocet, Tylenol or any acitomophen (sp?)containing medications...

    Can somebody share with me - what are you doing to relieve the pain in this case???

    Thank you in advance.
    Best wishes to all of you!!

    You could take just oxycodone. Percocet is oxycodone and tylenol. Oxycodone comes in different forms and dosing strengths. Also, I have seen many that take hydrocodone (Vicodin and Lortab are a hydro and tylenol mix), that the pharmacist compounds without tylenol. So there are still many options for you. These are just a few of the options in short-acting meds. There is also a med cumbinox (oxycodone and ibuprofen), instead of tylenol.

    Also here is Ultam, Demerol, Dilaudid, Oxycontin, Fentanyl, Opana, and others that do not contain tylenol.

    Are you seeing a pain doctor? Is your pain related to your heart condition,, or something else entirely?

    Re: Does anyone has heart problem and can't take Percocet or meds containg acitomoph

    i am just kind of wondering what you were told about the tylenol and why this would cause a problem if taken with coumadin or a beta blocker?i have never heard that before.i was on plavix before and my mom is currently on coumadin and neither of us were ever told there could be some sort of problem.i was also on a beta blocker years ago to try and keep my migranes to a minimum and also was not told to stay away from tylenol.just curious as to what has changed?did they actually explain the reason for this?i would think taking any sort of NSAID would be a much bigger issue than tylenol.tylenol is pretty compatable with just about every med out there when compared to some others.this just sounds kinda odd.any clarification would really be helpful here,since this could be an issue for my mom who still takes tylenol and coumadin.thanks,by the way, B fly pretty much went thru all the meds i think that do not have tylenol so i really cannot think of anything else to add to that.marcia

    Re: Does anyone has heart problem and can't take Percocet or meds containg acitomoph

    Thank you for your respond - realy appreciated.
    My pain is from having 2 levels fusion 18 month ago with hardware, open decompression, laminectomy, prostesis and hip bone graft; metal plates and clips on a pelvic area also. Permanent nerve damage in a low extremidies - neuropathy pain (I am on Neurontin for this).
    I absolutely can't take nothing with Aspirin (like Ibuprofen, Advil, etc.) and Tylenol.
    I am so lucky to have a Dr-cardiologist and his assistant/RN who work with their patients very well on a regular basis.
    I was told that Tylenol interferes with Beta-blocers, but especially important -with Coumadin. Also, since all meds for cholesterol , Coumadin, Beta-Blockers can damage your liver big time - Tylenol is a well knowing medication to damage liver as well.
    So I can't have nothing which contains either Aspirin related medication or Tylenol related. I am worry since I am very sensetive to a many medications and I get adverse reaction very often. Let's say Morphine is not for me at all: turns me into irritable, mad woman with such a severe restless body syndrome that they told me under no surcumstances ever take Morphine again. This is not good especially I am facing 4 levels surgery now and this is the only pump they used to give me after all my surgeries and it helped pain a great deal (they did not know though where side effects come from until resently).

    Moldova, do you have a pain management doctor?? I would make sure that he is on top of this especially before you move forward with your surgery. What do they have you on now for pain control??

    Diet,

    I am on Percocet right now (high dosage), Neurontin. I have a wonderful PM Dr now at ***, he is doing my discogram on Monday, Sept 24th.

    I will discuss this matter with him; meanwhile I am worry to start new pain medications: who knows how will I react to it, or if will work on me or not... It takes time until you get the right one and the dose which works for you. I got pretty good with Percocet and now all this has to be changed - ahhhh!

    I try so hard not to over do it with PK, but look now how much I have to take for my heart, and strong antibiotics for a month after my last surgery. Feel like not end to all this.
