Rather unfortunate, checked it on the Interactions Checker & found that: oxycodone ↔ loperamide
Applies to: OxyContin (oxycodone), Imodium (loperamide)
MONITOR: Coadministration of narcotic analgesics with antidiarrheal agents may have additive central nervous system (CNS) and gastrointestinal (GI) system effects, and increase the risk of severe constipation or paralytic ileus and CNS depression.
MANAGEMENT: If concomitant use cannot be avoided, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS depression and constipation. Ambulatory patients should be counseled to avoid activities requiring mental alertness until they know how these agents affect them.
Must seek medical advice ASAP, hope this helps & your son gets well soon.
