There are a lot of people on pain meds and meds for anxiety / depression. Did the same doctor prescribe both?? If not, it is always a good idea to keep all doctors in the loop. I see no problem with this combo, if these are new to you, I might suggest you not take them at same time. Best of luck...
Interactions between your selected drugs
fluoxetine ↔ oxycodone
Applies to: Prozac (fluoxetine), Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone)
Using oxyCODONE together with FLUoxetine can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience these symptoms during treatment. In addition, combining these medications may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Percocet (acetaminophen / oxycodone) interacts with more than 400 other drugs.

Do not drink alcohol or use medications that contain alcohol while you are being treated with oxyCODONE. This can increase nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, and impairment in thinking and judgment. In addition, you may be at greater risk for serious side effects such as respiratory depression, low blood pressure, fainting, coma, and even death. You may also want to avoid or limit the consumption of grapefruit and grapefruit juice, which can significantly increase the blood levels of oxyCODONE in some people. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs.

Hey Merrilo5. The answer to your question is yes it is safe to take percocet & Prozac together. As long as you aren't abusing either drug by taking more than you should be there is no drug interaction btwn the 2 meds. A side effect of both these drugs though is suicidal thoughts, rage/uncontrolled anger or feelings of despair. If you notice any of those emotions you might want to hold off on your next dose & call your dr ASAP. However those effects are rare so you'll probably be fine. Take care. :-)
