Oxycodone is a prescription opioid medication that is commonly used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is a highly effective pain reliever but also carries a high risk of addiction and abuse.

Due to the potential for misuse and addiction, Oxycodone is classified as a controlled substance and can only be obtained with a valid prescription from a licensed physician.

However, with the rise of online pharmacies and the ease of obtaining medications without a prescription, the availability of Oxycodone without a prescription has become a growing concern.
