Overview Information on Oxycodone
Pharmacist Tip
You may take oxycodone with food if it upsets your stomach.     
Oxycodone is a medicine that belongs to a group of medicines called narcotic pain killers. Your doctor may have prescribed oxycodone for you to manage moderate to severe pain because your condition needs constant, around-the-clock pain relief. Oxycodone is taken when people are expected to need pain relief for a long time.

Oxycodone comes as the brand names Oxecta®, OxyContin®, Oxy fast, and Roxicodone®. Oxycodone may also be combined with other medicines including acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen. These combinations come as different brand names.

Oxycodone comes as tablets, capsules, and liquid forms. Oxycodone comes as both rapid-release and extended-release forms.

Oxycodone is not meant to be taken for immediate pain relief or on an "as-needed" treatment for pain.

Always take oxycodone exactly as your doctor tells you to. Swallow oxycodone tablets or capsules whole. Never break, chew, or crush oxycodone. Doing so may release the entire dose of oxycodone at once, which could result in overdose or death.

If you miss a dose of oxycodone, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next oxycodone dose, skip the missed dose and take the next dose at your regular time.

Store oxycodone at room temperature.
