Oxycodone 30 mg is a well-known opiate analgesic for treating moderate to severe muscle pain. It belongs to a class of drugs called controlled substances as it works directly on the central nervous system to manipulate certain chemicals in the brain to change how it reacts to pain. As a Schedule II drug, it has a high risk of abuse and addiction. One can also buy Oxycodone online in generic at a cheaper price but requires a legal prescription from a licensed doctor to be used.
Oxycodone 30 mg is not recommended to be used by children and older persons as they have a high chance of getting serious side effects including death. People with certain medical issues including breathing problems, a head injury, drug or alcohol addiction, lung disease, liver problems, kidney disease, thyroid disorder, adrenal disease, urination problems, and problems with gallbladder are also advised to stay away from this drug.
Oxycodone is an immediate-release oral medication that comes in tablet form and can be taken with or without food. However, it should be taken after a heavy meal in case of any stomach issues. Swallow it whole with plenty of water and never crush, break, or chew the tablet to make it easy to consume. Taking this medication more often, or for a longer time can cause fatal effects as it is only used for sudden pain as needed.
The side effects can be very severe in case of drug abuse, overdose, or sudden withdrawal that requires immediate medical attention. These effects include:
- Interrupted breathing during sleep (sleep apnea)
- Mood changes (such as agitation, confusion, hallucinations)
- Severe stomach/abdominal pain
- Difficulty urinating
- Slow/shallow breathing
- Severe drowsiness/difficulty waking up
- Itching/swelling of the face, tongue, or throat
- Severe dizziness
