Can I use Magnacet if I am taking buprenorphine?

In most cases, people shouldn't use the prescription pain medication Magnacet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) if they're taking buprenorphine (Subutex, Suboxone), which is used to treat addiction to opioid drugs such as heroin and narcotic painkillers. Because Magnacet itself contains an opioid, it may be less effective or not work at all if you're also using buprenorphine. Also, if you've been taking Magnacet for a long time and then begin using buprenorphine, you may experience withdrawal symptoms from Magnacet.
