What is Oxycodone?

Oxycodone is a pain-relieving medication that doctors prescribe following injury or surgery. Oxycodone is used for short-term pain relief but has a high risk of addiction when not used under strict medical guidance. Oxycodone is an opiate, meaning it's a drug derived from opium. Oxycodone is sold under many trade names, such as Percodan, Endodan, Roxiprin, Percocet, Endocet, Roxicet, and OxyContin.

Oxycodone Addiction

Oxycodone enters the bloodstream in a matter of seconds. Oxycodone undergoes several chemical reactions in your brain and changes back into morphine. It then binds to your brain's opioid receptors to cause pain relief, euphoria, and diminished anxiety. Prolonged oxycodone use can cause seizures, headaches, physical dependence, and respiratory problems.
