Can I use Roxicodone if I am taking naloxone?

Most likely, your doctor will administer the drug naloxone only if you have taken too much Roxicodone (oxycodone) or overdosed on a related medication. Roxicodone is a pain reliever that belongs to a class of drugs called opioid analgesics. Taking more Roxicodone than prescribed can cause serious side effects, including breathing difficulty, unconsciousness and even death. Naloxone and other related drugs can reverse these side effects by blocking the activity of opioids.
