Ricoyo; I need to know exactly which one you have and the right spelling, This is very strong and I don't want to guess what you're asking and match it up with the other medications you take. CHUCK1957

Hi Ricoyo,
Oxycodone is a strong, SHORT-acting medication.
It's addicting and causes tolerance rather easily. This means you need a higher dose when your body "gets used to it".
It's an opioid which, as you know, is on the government's hit list so docs will try to use everything else first.
Chronic pain Best treated is to have one long acting with a drug in the same category to use as a rescue drug.
I hope this helps.
