Tylox Overdose

The effects of a Tylox (oxycodone/APAP) overdose will vary, depending on how much Tylox was taken and whether it was combined with other drugs. An overdose of the acetaminophen component of Tylox may cause diarrhea, irritability, or vomiting. An overdose of the oxycodone component can lead to difficulty breathing, extreme drowsiness, or cardiac arrest. Early treatment after a Tylox overdose is essential to prevent life-threatening effects.
