Question: I took a percocet 5/325 about 4 hours ago due to extreme pain from a recent miscarriage. I have been fighting a horrible cold and coughing very bad. I cannot sleep due to it. I was recently prescribed Tussionex, is it ok to take it right now so I can get some sleep without coughing like crazy?
