I have be prescribed OXYCODONE 40MG EXTENDED RELEASE . How does extended release work?
It is much more effective. The constant blood level keeps the pain from getting worse. Just don't chew crush or dissolve it.
The Extended Release gives you a longer period of time at a steady level for about 7 or 8 hours. The half life for OXYCODONE ER is about 4 hours so right around 5 or 6 hours the full effect to your pill will start to diminish a little bit. Hope this helps you out
