Can I use Roxicodone if I am taking selegiline?

Let your doctor know about your use of selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar) if he or she prescribes the pain medication Roxicodone (oxycodone). Selegiline, a medication that's sometimes prescribed in combination with other drugs to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease, has been known to interact with certain pain relievers. You may be able to take Roxicodone, but it's important to tell your doctor you're taking selegiline so that he or she can prescribe the right dose of the pain medication.
