What drugs should not be taken with OxyContin?
Our homepage details quite a number of drugs, that if taken at the same time with
OxyContin may cause certain negative effects. Thus, to be safe you should definitely
consult a doctor before using this drug. Additionally, a few other painkillers
can reduce OxyContin's effect, or even cause withdrawal symptoms. Caution is necessary
