Depending on how much he has been taking daily and the fact that oxycodone is a short acting drug, he should not experience side effects after 24 to 48 hours. That being said, if he has been on the medication for a while then he may exerience withdrawal symptoms which could last several days to a week or so. If he has been on the oxycodone for an extended amount of time, he will need to taper his dose not stop abruptly so to avoid withdrawals.
