Ankle injury, on reprexian, had slow breathing after taking wine. Advice?

Hi Doctor. I just recently hurt my ankle pretty bad and was prescribed a pain killed called reprexian. Tonight, my roomate and I had friends over and had two, maybe three glasses of wine. Later, I took one reprexian without thinking anything of it. Now, it seems as if my breathing is very slow. I wanted to know your advice. I don t think it s at a point where I need to go to a hospital, but I wanted to ask someone.

Reprexain is a combination of ibuprofen and oxycodone. Taking this with alcohol is not advisable as the effects of both drugs may be prolonged. However, three glasses of wine is unlikely to cause major problems so do not worry, you won't need to go to hospital.
