What is Percodan?
Percodan® is a synthetic opiate painkiller that combines oxycodone with aspirin to relieve moderate-to-severe pain. Percodan is currently marketed by Endo Pharmaceuticals and it has been sold since 1950.
Percodan vs. Percocet
Percodan was reformulated in 2005 and it is now rarely prescribed because aspirin has blood-thinning effects. More people are ow prescribed Percocet®, a painkiller oxycodone with acetaminophen.
What is the problem?
Overdoses of Percodan are very dangerous for several reasons. Aspirin can cause liver and kidney problems in high doses. Overdoses of oxyocodonen can also cause a person to stop breathing, lose consciousness, and suffer death. Oxycodone is also highly addictive.
Symptoms of a Percodan Overdose
- Slow or stopped breathing
- Difficulty breathing
- Excessive sleepiness
- Limp or weak muscles
- Narrowing or widening of the pupils (dark circle in eye)
- Cold, clammy skin
- Loss of consciousness
If you or a loved one was prescribed Percodan and experienced an accidental overdose, addiction, hospitalization, or severe side effects, you may be eligible to file a Percodan lawsuit or join a class action.
Percodan Class Action Lawsuits & MDL
Hundreds of lawsuits have already been filed in the U.S. by victims of the opioid crisis. These lawsuits accuse pharmaceutical companies of selling highly-addictive painkillers without adequate warnings about potential side effects. Because so many lawsuits have been filed, they have been centralized in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in Ohio federal court. The opioid MDL is similar to a class action lawsuit.
