Med Question

Jan 20, 2018 8:22 AM

I have a small script for oxycodone 10 mg. I’m sick and need to take lots of vitamin C. Will this mess with the effects of the oxy? Unsure!

I don't believe so Vit C is good for us. Maybe just space them out.

Hi Steph, I didn't think there was any interaction but I checked my books anyway. The medical books and websites I have show no problem with taking them both together, even at the same time. If I can help any more please let me know :)

I know the question seemed silly. Now I’m full blown sick! Taking so many meds to get this out of me that I’m light headed! I’m disappointed too because I have a doc appt tomorrow with pcp for a referral to a spine specialist. I’m worried that he will focus on my temporary illness rather than my serious issue at hand. Plus due to my fever my pain is so much worse. To be honest, the only reason I have 10mg oxy is because my mother in law gave me 2 for my pain. I’ve never taken it before so I was worried if I pumped myself up with all of these vitamins and immune boosting stuff that it would possibly stop the pain medication from working. Luckily it helped my body aches and took my back pain back to normal back pain instead of curling over pain. I do not have time to be sick!!! I suppose I did well working at a pcp for 3 months without getting sick. Now it’s my turn.

Stay healthy everyone!!!

Should not be a pronlem. You can always check with your Pharmacist for reassurance
