Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. Percocet is a combination of paracetamol and oxycodeine.
In the 1st trimester one should not use drugs indescreminately.
2nd and 3rd trimesters you can use any drugs. But one should be cautious in the 10days prior to
delevry as they may influence the delevery or the child.
Oxycodone is a centrally acting analgesic with habbit forming nature so your friend should be
cautious and try to stop taking the tablet as on today no harm if she avoids it.
Three dimentional scanning under the supervision of a doctor will reveal if there ir any difference.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations to prevent any untoward effects. Take more of
green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts fruits and juices. thanks for calling.
