Oxycodone hydrochloride is a type of ingredient used in many prescription medications and is used for pain relief. The medication is a controlled substance, which means that it has strict laws and regulations regarding its sale and use. As an opioid narcotic, oxycodone also has a significant potential for both physical and psychological dependence and abuse. The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will be based on several factors, such as the severity of your pain, other existing medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking (including vitamins and supplements).
