If someone has already taken oxycodone apap 5-325 mg, can they later take oxycodone hydrochloride that same day and if so, how long after taking first med and can this oxycodone hydrochloride be broken in half or quarters like the other med?
If the directions on the medications indicate you can take the oxycodone this way, then it should be ok. I would call the pharmacist and double check on when it would be safe to start taking the new medication. As far as breaking the pills in half, the instructions that come with the prescription should say if it should be swallowed whole. Please double check with the pharmacist on this too. Always be on the safe side with these strong opiate medications. Best wishes to you.
