Roxicet should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because Roxicet is a highly desired drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.
Roxicet is often prescribed "as needed," which means you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before the next dose.
Roxicet tablets are available in the following strengths:
- Roxicet 5/325 mg tablets -- 5 mg of oxycodone hydrochloride and 325 mg of acetaminophen
