I read what the pillfinder said about Oxycodone but they didnt mention what Hydrochloride was. The pill is Pink and on one side it hasthe number 12 and on the other side it has an N and a P. all i want to know is what the Hydrchloride in the Oxycodone means.. Thank you
yes, oxycodone is usually oxycodone hydrochloride. That's the full generic name. Australia has a form of oxycodone called oxycodone pectinate, brand name is Proladone but this form isnt available in the US. It is pretty much the same thing, the chemical composition is just slightly different. If you look under the "professional" description of oxycodone, it mentions the hydrochloride but unless you are medically trained or know chemicals, it doesnt make much sense to you. This is why the "laymens" descriptions dont always mention the "hydrochloride" part.
