Magnacet Interactions Explained
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Magnacet is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
You should avoid alcohol while taking Magnacet. Alcohol interacts with the narcotic component of Magnacet (oxycodone), potentially increasing the risk of serious side effects, such as extreme drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Alcohol also interacts with the acetaminophen (Tylenol®) component of Magnacet, increasing the risk of liver damage (see Tylenol and Alcohol for more information).
Combining Magnacet with an anticholinergic medication increases the risk of constipation and dangerous intestinal blockages. It is best to check with your healthcare provider before combining Magnacet with an anticholinergic medication, especially if you are not taking a stimulant laxative to prevent constipation.
Combining an antidepressant with Magnacet could increase your risk of side effects, such as drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. Serious side effects may also occur. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Magnacet with an antidepressant, as you may need to be monitored more closely and the dose of your medications may need to be adjusted.
Many antihistamines cause significant drowsiness and can cause serious problems when used in combination with other medications that cause drowsiness, such as Magnacet. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Magnacet with an antihistamine, including non-prescription antihistamines.
