What is Percodan?

Percodan® is a prescription painkiller that contains a synthetic opiate painkiller called oxycodone with aspirin. It is prescribed for the treatment of moderate-to-severe pain. Percodan has been sold in the U.S. since 1950 and it is now marketed by Endo Pharmaceuticals.

Percodan vs. Percocet

In the U.S., Percodan is not prescribed as often as another painkiller called Percocet® (oxycodone/acetaminophen). This is because the aspirin in Percodan can cause unwanted blood-thinning side effects.

What is the problem?

Percodan is very dangerous in high doses. Overdoses of Percoan can cause liver and kidney problems due to the aspirin in the medication. Oxycodone overdoses can also cause a person to stop breathing, lose consciousness, and suffer death. Percoan is also very 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
  • Coma
  • Death

Percodan Lawsuits

If you or your family member was prescribed Percodan and suffered an accidental overdose, hospitalization, severe side effects, or death, you may be eligible to join a class action or file a Percodan lawsuit.

Percodan Class Action Lawsuits & MDL

The opioid crisis in the U.S. has already claimed thousands of lives, and hundreds of lawsuits have been filed by the victims. Pharmaceutical companies are accused of downplaying the risk of life-threatening side effects from their highly-additive painkilling drugs.

Many of the lawsuits are centralized in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL), which is similar to a class action lawsuit. The opioid MDL is pending in federal court in Ohio under U.S. District Judge Dan Polster.
