Can I use OxyContin if I am taking isocarboxazid?

If your doctor prescribes OxyContin (oxycodone), tell him or her that you're already taking isocarboxazid (Marplan). OxyContin is used to treat moderate to severe pain; isocarboxazid is an antidepressant. While OxyContin's package insert doesn't warn against combining this pain reliever with isocarboxazid, your doctor may want to adjust your OxyContin dose if you're taking the latter drug.
