Oxycodone Maximum Dosage
The dose of oxycodone hydrochloride that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, such as the severity of your pain, other medications you are taking, and other medical conditions you may have.
As with similar medications, there is no universal, standard maximum dosage for oxycodone. The maximum dosage that is acceptable in any particular individual is limited by the oxycodone side effects that occur. In other words, the maximum dose is the dose at which any higher would cause extremely bothersome or even dangerous side effects. This may vary, depending on a number of different factors (such as your tolerance to opioid medications, the severity of your pain, and the particular way your body handles the medication).
For combination products (that combine oxycodone with other active ingredients), the other active ingredients limit how much of the combination product can be taken.
