Oxycodone is a potent opioid medication used for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It operates by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, thereby altering the perception of pain. Oxycodone is available in various formulations and brand names, such as OxyContin and Percocet.
It is essential to use oxycodone as prescribed by a healthcare professional and to be aware of the potential for misuse and addiction associated with opioid medications. It comes with different types of tablets like 5mg, 10mg, 15mg, 20mg, 30mg, 40mg, 60mg, and 80mg.
