This just doesn't sound very likely to me. I suppose it's possible, anything is possible.

How long has he been on Celexa? If he's been taking it for a while (say, 2-3 months or more), and he hasn't gotten a response from it, then Celexa is probably just not the right drug for him.

If he has been taking it for only a few weeks or something, the Celexa may just need a bit more time to kick in.

If he has been taking it for a while, and it worked, but then stopped working - then it is merely another case of the "poop out" phenomenon.

From a pharmacological standpoint, there is no reason why oxycodone would counteract Celexa.

And just a side note, I tell ya... if I was taking Oxycontin regularly, I wouldn't even need an anti-depressant. That's just me though.
