Endocet 5/325 is a brand name for oxycodone, which is an opioid pain medication that is made up of 5 milligrams of oxycodone and 325 milligrams of acetaminophen. It is generally prescribed for the treatment of moderate to severe pain, according to EverydayHealth.
EverydayHealth warns that before taking this medicine, patients should tell their doctors if they have liver disease, breathing problems, low blood pressure or problems with the thyroid, pancreas or gallbladder. Endocet may also interact with alcohol, causing serious side effects or even death. It can also impair reactions and thinking, so those taking it should avoid operating machinery or driving until they are sure how it will affect them.
