Oxycodone 5 mg is a popular medication to help people manage moderate to severe pain. It belongs to a class of drugs called opiate analgesics which work directly on the central nervous system to manipulate certain chemicals in the brain helping to change how the brain responds to pain. It is a Schedule II drug, which means it has a high risk of abuse and addiction and requires a legal prescription from a licensed doctor to buy Oxycodone online.
Oxycodone 5 mg is an immediate-release tablet to be taken orally without food restriction. However, in case of stomach upset, it must be taken after a complete meal. As your prescribed dosage is based on your medical condition do not increase your dose without consulting your doctor. This medication is only used for sudden pain as needed, taking the medication more often, or for a longer time can cause fatal effects.
People with certain health 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 should stay away from Oxycodone. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are not advised to take this medication without consulting a doctor.
