Does Oxycodone counteract anesthesia?

Hi, today I took 60 MG of Oxycodone at 6 PM ET. I undergo surgery for my wrist tomorrow at 8:00 AM ET. Will I be okay with the Oxy in my system while undergoing anesthesia? Is there a chance of it interacting with it at all or will it be out of my system by then? Thank you, XXXX

Hi,

Yes, it may counteract anesthesia. Oxycodone can be detected up to 24 hours in blood so if it may increase effects anesthesia on breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, and sedation (drowsiness). You need to be closely monitored by the surgical staff while you are under anesthesia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali, General & Family Physician
