BRIDGEPORT - News 12 Connecticut’s “What’s Ailing You” is taking a look at the negative side effects of oxycodone.

Carmen Morales, 50, says she went to the ER after suffering excruciating pain in her left arm. She was given oxycodone for the pain, and went the next five days without eating. Morales says the medicine made her violent, and that she had nightmares after taking it.

Norwalk Hospital pharmacist Bob Bepco says medication, like alcohol, can affect people differently. He also says that one should ask their doctor or pharmacist about any medication prescribed before they take it.
