My daughter is 36, weighs 87lbs. I just found out she took 3 Percocet 30 and some smaller ones. I know she needs help, I am 2000 miles away, my question is what are the side effects for that amount?
Thank you,

Thanks for posting your query.
Taking only three tablets of percocet 30 is not likely to cause any serious symptoms. It can cause an increased sleepiness, drowsiness, confusion, nausea, vomiting, constipation, bradycardia, hypotension, etc.
All these symptoms are gradually likely to subside in next 12 hours.
The important thing to note is why did she do it? If she has some problems in life she should immediately seek help to resolve them. She should take the help of her parents / Guardian / Friends.
If you think she is alone then she should seek help from Counselor. He will certainly be able to help her.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
