10 mg Oxycodone is a medication used to treat pain. It is an opioid drug that binds to opioid receptors in the brain, spinal cord and other areas of the body to produce a variety of effects. Oxycodone works by changing how your body feels and responds to pain. It can be taken orally, intramuscularly, subcutaneously, or intravenously.
This is a powerful medicine that can help people with severe pain. It is a narcotic that is a controlled substance, meaning it is illegal to use without a prescription. People who take oxycodone should be aware of side effects, including nausea, dizziness, constipation, and respiratory depression. Oxycodone is prescribed in tablet or liquid form and should only be taken in the dosage prescribed by the doctor.
10 mg of oxycodone is the maximum recommended dose for adults on a single day. This drug works by attaching to opioid receptors in the brain and reducing the sensation of pain in the body.
