Oxycodone 10 mg is a popular immediate-release painkiller tablet to treat moderate to severe pain. As a controlled substance, it works on the central nervous system to manipulate certain chemicals in the brain to change how the brain responds to pain. It belongs to a special drug class called Schedule II drugs which have a high chance of abuse and addiction. Therefore, the FDA has some special regulations to buy Oxycodone online.
Oxycodone 10 mg is an opiate analgesic to be prescribed when other painkillers don’t work. Its dosage depends upon three major factors including the age, severity of the condition, and response to treatment. Children and older people are not suitable candidates to use this medication as they have a high chance of serious side effects. Oxycodone is only used for sudden pain as needed and shouldn’t be taken more often or for a longer time.
Taking this medication for a longer period can increase the risk of drug dependency in which the user needs to take this medication regularly to live a normal life. Never share your prescribed medication with others as it may not work for them and can cause adverse effects. This medication contains some substances, which can cause allergic reactions. Inform your doctor if you have a history of allergies.

- Mood changes (such as agitation, confusion, hallucinations)
- Severe stomach/abdominal pain
- Difficulty urinating
- Slow/shallow breathing
- Severe drowsiness/difficulty waking up
