Can I take Roxicet if I am taking selegiline?

If you're taking selegiline (Eldepryl, Zelapar, Emsam), you may not be able to take the pain medication Roxicet (acetaminophen and oxycodone). Selegiline is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease, and it may interact with the oxycodone in Roxicet. Your doctor will help you decide if Roxicet is the best medication for you or if you should take a different type of pain medication.
