Re: pain medicine that does not have acetaminophen

My pain management doctor switched me from Percocet (oxycodone w/acetaminophen) to Oxy IR (immediate-release oxycodone only) because he didn't want my liver to suffer from all the Tylenol. Although they're both strong narcotics that do create dependence, thus I would recommend trying non-narcotic pain meds.

Re: pain medicine that does not have acetaminophen

I am also concerned about my tylenol consumption. I was taking Primalev (oxycodone w/acetaminophen) for BT pain because it had the lowest dose of Tylenol, 300mg vs. 325mg. For some reason the Primalev didn't provide much pain relief, if any. I mentioned this to my doctor and she suggested percocet 10/325. The percocet does work much better IMO, but I am still worried about the APAP. Does the Oxy IR come in 10mg?

Re: pain medicine that does not have acetaminophen

As long as you keep your daily intake of acetaminophen below 3000mg/day and you are completely healthy with no liver/kidney disease then you should not have anything to worry about. Just make sure you get your blood tests every 6 months to check your liver/kidney function


p.s. pain meds that do not contain acetaminophen

oxycodone based - Oxycontin, Oxy IR, Roxicodone

morphine based - morphine sulfate, Kadian, Avinza, MS Contin


atypical opiod - Ultram (tramadol), Suboxone

fentanyl based - fentanyl patch, Durgagesic
