No. Oxycodone has too many inactive ingredients that are dangerous when injected. It can cause heart and lung problems and damage your veins. If the oxy's aren't working for you orally, ask your doc for another form of this medication. It may be available in suppository form which actually works better than tablets as more of the active ingredient is absorbed in to your system.
Please discuss an alternative with your doctor.
My best wishes,
Please listen to the answer that Christine gave you regarding this. I know of a person that had what you do, a pick line, and injected dissolved morphine tablet into the line, went into respiratory arrest and died. So it's not something you care to fool around with. Heroin addicts have done this and ended up od'ing because they were used to having their heroin injected intramuscularly, not in a vein, and it increased the potency to the point where they almost died. With the oxycodone, there are too many buffers that can cause damage to your veins and other possible even worse effects. Take your meds as prescribed and if not working, talk to your Dr. I'd hate to see someone pass away due to lack of knowledge, so i'm sure you will get the same answers here from other people. Take care and don't take chances that could have dire results. Dede
