Description

Oxycodone (sold under the brand names Roxicodone and OxyContin, which is the extended release form, among others) is an opioid medication used for treatment of moderate to severe pain. It is highly addictive and is commonly used recreationally by people who have an opioid use disorder. It is usually taken by mouth, and is available in immediate-release and controlled-release formulations.Onset of pain relief typically begins within fifteen minutes and lasts for up to six hours with the immediate-release formulation. In the United State, it is available by injectionCombination products are also available with paracetamol (acetaminophen), ibuprofen, naloxone, naltrexone, and aspirin.

Oxycodone is used for managing moderate to severe acute or chronic pain when other treatments are not sufficient.It may improve quality of life in certain types of pain.It is unclear if use in chronic pain results in improved quality of life or ongoing pain relief.

Oxycodone is available as a controlled-release tablet, intended to be taken every 12 hours. A July 1995 study independent of Purdue Pharma, the drug’s originator, found the controlled-release formulation had a variable duration of action ranging from 11 to 15 hours. 2006 review found that controlled-release oxycodone is comparable to immediate-release oxycodone, morphine, and hydromorphone in management of moderate to severe cancer pain, with fewer side effects than morphine. The author concluded that the controlled-release form is a valid alternative to morphine and a first-line treatment for cancer pain. In 2013, the European Association for Palliative Care recommended oxycodone by mouth as a second-line alternative to morphine by mouth for cancer pain.
