Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
Taking fluoxetine with oxycodone can increase the risk of serotonin syndrome.
However, it is rare.
You need to discuss with your doctor before taking them together.
He would decide after considering your health condition.
I hope this information helps.
