Oxycodone is a narcotic pain medication that primarily relieves moderate to severe pain. It can be used for both short-term and long-term treatment of acute, chronic or postoperative pain (immediately after surgery, for example).
What Are The Benefits Of Using Oxycodone?
The use of this medication is to help relieve moderate to severe pain. It belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid analgesics. Do not use the ER form of Oxycodone to relieve mild pain or pain that will go away in a few days. It is not on an occasional or as-needed basis.
One should use this drug’s higher strengths only if one regularly takes moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These drugs may cause overdose or death if someone who has not regularly taken opioids takes this medicine.
