Oxycodone Medicine for Pain

Oxycodone hydrochloride is an opioid pain reliever. It is an active ingredient in many different prescription medications. It is available by itself (in both short- and long-acting products) or in combination with other active ingredients.
 
As a type of narcotic medicine, oxycodone has a significant potential for both psychological and physical dependence and abuse. In fact, it is classified as a controlled substance, meaning that there are special rules and regulations for prescribing and obtaining the medication.
 
As a prescription pain medicine, oxycodone works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body and produces numerous different effects. Some of these effects include pain relief, cough suppression, and decreased breathing.
 
Although most people tolerate oxycodone well, it is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and non-prescription medicines), as well as any other medical conditions you may have. Possible side effects include nausea, drowsiness, and headaches.
