Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query. A detailed review of medical literature on drug interactions a Lithium carbonate and Oxycodoneshows that the two drugs have a moderate drug interaction.taking the two together may cause confusion,drowsiness,respiratory depression and should be avoided if possible.The analgesic effect of the opiate is however unimpaired,it may also be increased due to delayed excretion of the drug in the presence of oxycodone.
