Brief Answer: Percocet,Roxicet,oxycodone+acetaminophen... Detailed Answer: Hi, Both Percocet and Roxicet are the brand names for a combination of acetaminophen + oxycodone. Perhaps, your doctor has increased the dosage of your medications for better results by changing also its brand name. Hope it answered to your inquiries! Feel free to ask me back at the next follow up if you have more questions! Dr.Alba

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
