Can I use Roxicodone if I'm receiving nalbuphine?

The prescription pain medication Roxicodone (oxycodone) may not work effectively if you're receiving nalbuphine. Roxicodone tablets are used for moderate to severe pain. Nalbuphine is also a pain reliever -- one that doctors inject, often as a supplement to anesthesia in patients undergoing surgery. Because of the way these drugs work in the body, nalbuphine may block the action of Roxicodone, reducing its pain-relieving benefits. If you've developed a physical dependence on Roxicodone, nalbuphine could also trigger withdrawal symptoms, such as muscle aches, chills and sweating. If your doctor plans to administer nalbuphine, tell him or her if you're using Roxicodone.
