Tylox (oxycodone and acetaminophen) Capsules are available in generic form. Tylox is a combination drug (oxycodone, an opioid analgesic and acetaminophen, an analgesic and antipyretic) indicated for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain. Some side effects include but are not limited to: lightheadedness, dizziness, and sedation.

Tylox capsules contain 5mg oxycodone and 500mg acetaminophen. The usual adult dosage is one Tylox capsule every 6 hours as needed for pain. Patients receiving other narcotic analgesics, general anesthetics, phenothiazines, other tranquilizer, sedative-hypnotic or other CNS depressants (including alcohol) concomitantly with Tylox may exhibit an additive CNS depression. The concurrent use of anticholinergics with narcotics may produce paralytic ileus. Tylox should not be given to a pregnant woman unless the potential benefits outweigh the possible hazards. It is not known whether the components of Tylox are excreted in human milk caution should be exercised when Tylox is administered to nursing women.
