Magnacet Pain Medicine
Healthcare providers often prescribe Magnacet™ (oxycodone/APAP) for treating short-term pain, such as pain caused by a surgery, dental procedure, or injury. However, this narcotic medication is sometimes prescribed to treat migraines, chronic pain, cancer pain, or other types of recurring or long-term conditions that cause pain. Like all oxycodone/APAP products, Magnacet (even when used at high doses) is not appropriate for treating pain that is very severe in nature.
Magnacet comes in tablet form and is generally taken every six hours as needed (if you are not in pain, you will skip the dose). This medication is not suitable for everyone. For example, as a narcotic, Magnacet has a high potential for abuse. In addition, let your healthcare provider know if you have any of the following conditions before starting treatment:
- A history of drug or alcohol dependence
- Gallbladder or pancreas disease
- Liver disease, such as cirrhosis, liver failure, or hepatitis.
