Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below... Detailed Answer: Hi, You are reporting to be using roxicet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) and have been experiencing slight yellowing around eyes (especially to the left eyes). It might be related to: - jaundice (liver damage due to roxicet use/over-dosage) - if the wisdom tooth was in the left eye, then, could be related to local edema/infection To rule out jaundice, you will need a blood test called as liver function test which should include Serum Blirubin - total, direct and indirect, SGOT and SGPT. I'd suggest to consult your physician/dentist as you might need further evaluation and proper treatment! Dr.Benard Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
