A common opioid painkiller is oxycodone. It is used to treat extreme pain, such as pain from cancer or pain following an operation or other traumatic event. When conventional painkillers like paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin have failed to relieve the pain, it may also be used for other types of chronic pain.
Only those with a prescription can buy oxycodone. Slow-release tablets, regular tablets and capsules, and a liquid that you ingest are all available forms. It can also be injected, however this is often done in a hospital setting. During the course of 12 or 24 hours, oxycodone slow-release tablets gradually release the drug into your body. Although they take longer to begin functioning, they last longer. They are applied to chronic pain.
Oxycodone liquid, tablets, capsules, and injections all act quickly. They're used for short-term pain and are frequently used when you first start taking oxycodone to help you find the right dose. To manage long-term pain, your doctor may prescribe both standard and slow-release oxycodone.
Sometimes oxycodone is combined with a medication known as naloxone. It is administered as a tablet to prevent certain side effects, such as constipation. Myloxifin, Oxyargin, and Targinact are brand names for oxycodone with naloxone. Oxycodone liquid and capsules work quickly but wear off after 4 to 6 hours. Slow-release tablets may take up to two days to fully activate, but the pain relief will last longer.
Addiction to oxycodone is possible, but your doctor will explain how to reduce your chances of becoming addicted.If you need to take oxycodone for more than a few weeks, your treatment plan may include instructions on how and when to discontinue use. The most common oxycodone side effects are constipation, nausea, and sleepiness. When taking oxycodone, avoid drinking grapefruit juice. It can alter the way your body processes oxycodone, leading to more serious side effects.
