Percocet Pulmonary Embolism Causes and Reviews


A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung. Pulmonary embolism is a serious condition that can cause

  • Permanent damage to the affected lung
  • Low oxygen levels in your blood
  • Damage to other organs in your body from not getting enough oxygen

If a clot is large, or if there are many clots, pulmonary embolism can cause death.

Half the people who have pulmonary embolism have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include shortness of breath, chest pain or coughing up blood. Symptoms of a blood clot include warmth, swelling, pain, tenderness and redness of the leg. The goal of treatment is to break up clots and help keep other clots from forming.

Percocet Pulmonary Embolism Reviews

Thu, 25 Feb 2010
I experienced increased joint pain when taking Percocet. Not sure if it was a reaction to the acetaminophen or the oxycodone. I have had strange joint issue for years, however they were triggered by this med and once I stopped using is pain subsided within about 8 hours. Has anyone else experienced this or heard of this type of reaction?

One parmacist suggested that Percocet was not recommended for older people though my Dr. says it is o.k. I'm 84.
Wed, 24 Nov 2010
After taking Percocet for over two years I have been experiencing severe anxienty and panic attacks at work, and I have not been able to hold a job because of it. Now I don't know if Percocet is the cause of this or something else in my brain, but I need to figure this out soon. My hips are really bad so it's a catch 22, quit taking it and not be able to work or keep taking it and be stressed out and have a hard time holding onto a job.

Chest pain can actually be a serious side effect. I started having this recently as well. I have been taking percs for only about 2 months. Although you could be showing signs of withdrawal by the time you lay down at night, you should check with your doc just to be sure. Ale sure not to go over the 4000mg daily dose because of the APAP (acudemidephin) try asking if you can switch to a non APAP Script. Good luck
