Can Roxicodone interact with other medications or foods?

The prescription pain medication Roxicodone (oxycodone) doesn't seem to react with specific foods, so major diet changes probably aren't necessary while taking this medication. (Smaller changes, such as adding fiber, might help with possible gastrointestinal side effects, such as nausea and constipation.)

Taking Roxicodone at the same time as certain other medications could cause troublesome interactions. In some cases, that could increase the risk of side effects; in others, it could diminish Roxicodone's ability to relieve pain. Tell your doctor about all medications you're taking before using Roxicodone. Here's a partial list of medications that may interact with Roxicodone:
  • muscle relaxants
  • narcotic analgesics
  • certain other pain relievers
  • general anesthetics
  • promethazine and other phenothiazines
  • other drugs that depress the central nervous system (your brain and nerves), including tranquilizers and sedatives
  • certain antidepressants
