Answer: Strokes take place in the brain, and damage the brain. The body (other than the brain) is not damaged, however, it is the brain which controls all other parts of the body, so when the brain is damaged, the person who suffered the stroke may become unable to use some part of his or her body, even though that body part is not actually damaged.

Answer: 30mg of Percocet can be harmful for some people, but it depends on several things.
Percocet comes in several doses. The most common prescribed contains 5mg of oxycodone. Percocet also contains acetaminophen, usually written on the bottle as APAP.
30mg of Percocet can kill a person who has no tolerance to the medication. Oxycodone will cause a decrease in respiration and the person can stop breathing.
Also, it is unsafe to take more than 1000mg of acetaminophen at a time, or more than 4000mg in a day. Taking more than this can damage the liver. Taking more than 7000mg of acetaminophen in a 24 hour period can cause liver failure. Keep in mind that once the liver is damaged, it will tolerate less acetaminophen.
The antidote given for acetaminophen overdose must be taken within 4 hours of ingestion, so it is important to seek emergency help right away.
