Roxicet Drug Interactions

Roxicet Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Roxicet is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Alcohol
You should avoid alcohol while taking Roxicet. Alcohol interacts with the narcotic component of Roxicet (oxycodone), potentially increasing the risk of serious side effects, such as extreme drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Alcohol also interacts with the acetaminophen (Tylenol®) component of Roxicet, increasing the risk of liver damage (see Tylenol and Alcohol for more information).
 
Anticholinergics
Combining Roxicet with an anticholinergic medication increases the risk of constipation and dangerous intestinal blockages. It is best to check with your healthcare provider before combining Roxicet with an anticholinergic medication, especially if you are not taking a stimulant laxative to prevent constipation.
 
Antidepressant Medications
Combining an antidepressant with Roxicet could increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Roxicet with an antidepressant; he or she may need to monitor you more closely or adjust your medications as necessary.
 
Antihistamines
Many antihistamines cause significant drowsiness and can cause serious problems when used in combination with other medications that cause drowsiness, such as Roxicet. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Roxicet with an antihistamine, including non-prescription antihistamines.
 
Antipsychotic Medications
Combining an antipsychotic medication with Roxicet can increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Roxicet with an antipsychotic medication.
