Can I use Tylox if I am taking naloxone?

If you are taking naloxone, a drug used to reverse an opioid overdose, you should not take Tylox (acetaminophen and oxycodone). Tylox, which is prescribed to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, contains oxycodone, an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever. Combining Tylox with naloxone can block the pain-relieving effects of oxycodone. In addition, because Tylox and naloxone have opposing effects, taking them together can cause withdrawal symptoms.
