Oxycodone Oral

A healthcare provider may prescribe oxycodone hydrochloride to help relieve pain. An oral medication, oxycodone is a type of opioid, narcotic pain reliever. It works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body. As a narcotic, oxycodone does have a significant potential for both physical and psychological dependence and abuse.
 
Oxycodone medications come in tablet, capsule, liquid, or extended-release tablet forms. Oxycodone is available by itself or in combination with other pain medications. The particular directions for each product can vary substantially, so make sure to refer to the information for your specific oxycodone medication.
 
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Possible side effects include headaches, nausea, and drowsiness. Before using oxycodone, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
