Can I use Roxicodone if I have a history of low blood pressure?

Tell your doctor about your history of low blood pressure before taking Roxicodone (oxycodone). Roxicodone is a pain reliever that belongs to a class of medications called opioid analgesics. All opioid analgesics have the potential to cause a severe drop in blood pressure in certain users. Your doctor will want to know about your history of low blood pressure, also called hypotension, so he or she can exercise the needed caution while prescribing Roxicodone.
