I took a oxycodone 5mg and 15 min later was given a toradol shot. Is this safe? Amy.

Hopefully, you remembered to tell the doctor who ordered the Toradol about the oxycodone, and he or she considered that before ordering the Toradol.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

Voluntary recalls were issued for specific lots of two opioid pain relievers and one medication for tension headaches. The affected drugs include:
Endocet (oxycodone/acetaminophen), 10/325 mg
Hydrocodone/acetaminophen, 7.5/500 mg
Butalbital/acetaminophen/caffeine, 50/325/40 mg
Endocet (oxycodone/acetaminophen) Endo Pharmaceuticals issued the nationwide Endocet recall because a bottle from each of two lots was found to contain some 10/650 mg tablets, which is twice the dosage of acetaminophen on the label. Because of this, consumers may take more than the intended acetaminophen dose. Possible Dangers: Unintentional administration of tablets with increased acetaminophen content may result in liver toxicity, especially in patients on other acetaminophen containing medications, patients with liver dysfunction, or people who consume more than 3 alcoholic beverages a day. Lots: The two lots affected are Lot # 402415NV and Lot # 402426NV. They were distri...
