In brief: detox hotlines

Call aa/na hotline, or 1 855 detox 00 if you feel like stopping dependency provoking drugs.
You may need detox, and stopping on your own may cause severe withdrawals including seizures in some cases. Stay clean.

meaning, do not use alcohol at all if you absolutely have to depend on pain killers of that type. It may kill you.

Alcohol is a luxury not a necessity, stop using it if you're on chronic pain meds.

In brief: Mitigate = no EtOH

Etoh = alcohol.
If' you're taking oxycodone, you should completely avoid alcohol. It can be a lethal combination. Best way to "mitigate" these risks is not to take them at all! as my colleagues have mentioned, others have used alcohol and pain meds and died.
