Oxycodone 5 mg
Oxycodone is supplied in a variety of different medications. These include immediate-release medications, extended-release medications, and combination medications.
Short-acting, immediate-release oxycodone (OxyIR®, OxyFast®, Roxicodone®, ETH-Oxydose™ and generic versions) is available in the following strengths:
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 5 mg tablets (Roxicodone)
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 5 mg capsules (OxyIR)
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 10 mg tablets
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 15 mg tablets (Roxicodone)
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 20 mg tablets
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 30 mg tablets (Roxicodone)
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 5 mg per 5 mL oral solution (Roxicodone)
- Oxycodone hydrochloride 20 mg per mL oral concentrate (Roxicodone, OxyFast, Eth-Oxydose).
The 5 mg oxycodone capsules, oral solution, and oral concentrate are actually medications that do not technically have FDA approval; they were "grandfathered" into the system because they were available long before the current laws and regulations were established.
There are also long-acting and combination oxycodone medications available, but these are not available in 5 mg strengths.
